May 31, 2012 was the day I finally joined the gym, after a long period of SAYING I was going to join. And boy, am I glad that I did. I think that joining the gym and being proactive about my health has truly improved my life. My head was getting too stagnant and a little musty.
I joined SparkPeople on August 21, 2012. On one of those two anniversaries, I am going to buy msyelf a little present: the Jawbone Up. https://jawbone.com/up
It's similar to the FitBit but it's a bracelet. I am most interested in what it tells me about my sleep!
I LOVE going to bed, but I often have some pretty freaky dreams. I tend to pop awake after 8.5 hours of sleep, if I'm lucky to be in bed that long. And so I'm super curious about the quality of my sleep. A friend told me that she has an iPhone app that measures sleep, but I'm not sure that if laying the phone near my head or under my pillow is as good of a measure as something against my wrist.
I figure that in a couple of months, Jawbone will hopefully have improved their Android app (it's brand new) and I won't be getting in on the technology at the start.
Do you have any fitness-tracking body devices, and if so, what do you think? Does the information you gain from the device improve your health behaviors?
