    Primal Fuel
    Wow. Intriguing. I have found I sleep pretty well with magnesium, but I always wake up groggy in the morning. Now I'm VERY interested in trying the 5-htp to see if there's a difference or not.

    FYI My armband looks like the Link only black, but is more like the Core in features.

    I'll be "shopping" for these and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the advice.

    A bodybugg would be cool too, but I think it's much bigger and bulkier than the GoWearFit.
    fitbit can be worn about anywhere. It comes with a strap for the wrist as well. I wear in under my shirt hanging on my bra.. not noticeable.. but it can go on the waist etc. as well.

    So my sleep efficiency is 94% today. I woke up 5 times, but two of those were my husband's fault. Ate clean yesterday, Feeling Good today. Looking forward to the 3 day weekend.

    the gowearfit likely gives more precise info than the fitbit, but the fitbit gives me what I need, and I had a problem with the idea of a monthly subscription fee, to DH monthly fees drive him way crazier than just paying a bigger price and being done with it. I don't want it to tell me calories burned because I don't believe it or use that info in calculating what I eat. Steps and sleep is all I care about. I have no idea how the fitbit knows I am awake versus just turning over, but it does. I have had nights (unfortunately very rare) where I have slept through without a wake up, and I know that I changed positions during the night because I take off my headphones in my sleep and wake up facing DH instead of away from him.

    gotta love a 3 day weekend!

    The cool thing about the calories burned and the exercise METS, is that you can clearly see when you metabolism is firing up and what causes that. Since I exercise a lot, it is a good thing to know. In addition Most BMR calculators put my avg cals burned while just sitting around at 2400. The truth is on a lazy day, I actually burn only 2100-2300 cals. Since I do believe calories count in some ways, this information is important to me.

    The fitbit did not exist when I got my GWF. I might have considered the FB otherwise, I still consider the $7.00 to be worth the extra perks that I get from my device.

    This conversation will be helpful for others who are deciding between the two.

    No 3-day weekend for me . Enjoy yours! Glad you got some good sleep.

    I'm curious about those wake-up periods overnight. Do you remember consciously waking at those times, or is more of a reading of your body coming out of a certain state, but you might not be consciously awake?
