There's an App for that...

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

So, as part of my new job, I got a new phone (an iPhone). Since I am new to the area and everything, so far I only ever use the phone to talk to my parents :) but recently discovered the SparkPeople App, and it has been AWESOME! I take my phone with me when I walk my dog, and I've gotten into the habit of using the "stopwatch" feature on my phone as soon as we walk out the door. Then once we reach home, I can check the stopwatch and immediately track the activity! Even when we just go out for a quick "potty walk" (10 min or less) I still track it -- every minute counts, right!?!? And it's been great for tracking my water right then and there (if I don't do it right away, I tend to forget and then over or under track). I would highly recommend this App to everyone!

Today was a pretty good day; logged 40 minutes of walking! Harley and I did an extra lap around the park this afternoon, and now he is fast asleep on the couch next to me! :) I've been feeling kind of pressured (from myself) to come up with some sort of exercise PLAN -- now I realize I can start slow and just log our walks until I am into more of a routine and ready to add some more structure (like strength training).
