tracking and incentivization
Monday, March 11, 2013
I'm all hooked up with phone apps - needed to supplement my spark! In times past, and I'm sure I'll get back there, I was very Wii active and I kept track of some things there, but my my mainstay is walking and some strength training. I needed to track the walking and hopefully incentivize myself. Unfortunately, there is not really a 'one size fits all' app. I have a combination of my fitnesspal, maymywalk/fitness, runtastic heart rate monitor and pedometer (I wanted to track steps). Some of these talk to other programs - unfortunately again, there is no consistency. Somehow between them all, they all sync up and all the information I want is somewhere. If anyone is/becomes aware of a one size fits all 'free' app let me know. What are you using?
Meanwhile, I went walking yesterday and monitored my route, my distance and speed, calories burned, steps and heart rate - along with some other items of interest. I even took a picture along the way and have the capability of listening to music. I also have the ability to score some points and even join some challenges.
Burned 88 cals
pace: 21 min mile
heart rate 79
distance 1.3 miles
I've accomplished my two goals - greater tracking ability and incentivization! I'm on the move!
