Fitness Friday and Christmas in July

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Health and Fitness Voices program and have been provided  with a wireless device & tablet and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.


I had a whole week at home and it felt great! It was still crazy busy but it felt so good to just be at home. I did lots of cooking, had a bit of time to relax and was excited that it felt like Christmas in July. Why? Because my new Samsung Galaxy 2 Tablet showed up. As part of my partnership with Verizon I get to test this awesome tablet. I picked it up from FedEx Office on Tuesday afternoon (a signature was needed and I’m not home during the day) and took it out the box and got playing.



Now that I am used to the Android interface it made setting it up so easy! It has a great user interface that makes sense. I set up my Gmail account and looked at the apps that I had downloaded on my Droid Razr HD and added those same ones to the Samsung Galaxy 2 Tablet.


My must have apps:




Amazon Kindle






Hulu Plus

USA Today

Play Books



What I am loving:


Screen Size

Smart Remote- You can run your tv and cable box from your tablet. So cool!

Multi tasking

Space for an SD card


Things I don’t love:

The play books app, I have a lot of e books and you can only add 1,000 books to Google Play. Some of the files work on my iPad but not my Galaxy Tab. So strange!

My work email. I know I mentioned this about the phone too, but Lotus notes sucks. It’s bad on my computer and horrible on the Android platform. Dear Lotus Notes, get with it and make a better platform!!


This is also great at the gym or working out at home. I had Pandora going while  I was doing a DVD at home on Wednesday. So handy. I can’t wait to bring  this to the gym for cardio. Speaking of the gym, I am sad that Best Body Bootcamp is winding down. Only 2 weeks left!
