It’s Day 4 of Misadventures in Baby Raising’s Fun in the Sun blog party!  I hope you’ve had time to check out the awesome products (and great giveaways) from Macy’s, NERF, and Sunglass Warehouse…if you haven’t then go on over and enter one (or all) of them!
With spring upon us, and summer right around the corner, I’ve committed myself (rather unwillingly) to getting back in shape and losing some of this “it’s cold out and there’s nothing to do so I might as well eat” weight.  I will be the first to admit that I’m not the athletic type, don’t work out regularly, and couldn’t diet to save my life…all of those things make losing weight a very steep uphill battle.  I have started watching what I eat…no more PB&J at midnight while working on reviews…and I have started walking/jogging nearly every day.  For someone who has never really dealt with wanting/needing to lose weight, it’s all a very new thing.  Of course, exercise is so much more fun when you have a fun and fashionable watch/cool gadget to help you out!  100_6536
Remember the ridiculously cool Timex Ironman watches from the 80’s?  You know the ones that came in awesome colors to match just about every outfit you owned( as long as that outfit was bright, loud, and lots of fun).  Well guess what?  They’re back and better than ever!  Timex Ironman Shock-resistant 30-lap Vivid Colors is a throwback to the original 1986 Timex Ironman watch with major improved functionality and shock-resistant durability.  Not only is this watch stylish and come in a range of great Vivid colors, it is also loaded with enhanced features:
Watch Features
*  Designed to Shock-Resistant I.S.O. standards providing ultimate dependability and ruggedness.
*  100-hour chronograph with lap or split in large digits.
*  10-lap memory recall for effortless review after workout.
*  On-the-fly recall or lap or split.
*  99-lap counter
*  Easy to use 24-hour countdown timer with countdown/stop (CS) and countdown/repeat (CR).
*  Alarm settable for daily/weekly/weekend/weekly with 5 minute backup.
*  2 time zone setting, to make travel easier.
*  Built-in reminders to quickly and easily set your watch.
*  Dependable water resistance to 200m.
*  Activate INDIGLO night light with the press of any button using Night Mode feature.
Pretty nice huh?  I was sent the Timex Ironman Shock-Resistant 30-lap Vivid Colors watch (in hot pink) to review.  First and foremost I must mention that even though this watch is by all accounts made for action it is also so stylish and fun.  I cannot tell you how many complements I have received on the watch since I started wearing it.  Of course, it’s also a great piece just because it is a throwback, people do remember and have asked me, “OMG is that THE original one from the 80’s?” 
What I LOVE about it
*  The 30-lap memory recall is great to have for quick reference after an intense workout!
*  I really love how tough this watch is, I am notorious for getting watches wet and ruining them, thank goodness this one can handle a little water!
*  I also very much appreciate how well the watch band fits and how comfortable it is.  I have fairly small wrists and most watches fall off or slide around, but this one stays put—and looks fabulous doing it!
*  Last but not least I love how stylish it is while still being super functional…most watches designed to do what this one can are in my opinion not very fashionable, but this one has it covered from all angles.  I mean come on…it’s pink!
What I would change about it:
Honestly—nothing!  I love the functionality and style of it…completely fabulous!
