During my lunch break at work I often watch videos on YouTube to avoid going outside and spending money I don't have( see Mom, I am saving!!!)
Today I stumbled across a review video by iJustine about the Jawbone UP. I'm not sure how I haven't heard about this sooner but I am glad I came across it, I think it's going to be a must have for fitness junkies and Apple lovers like myself....
