Fitbit Flex Week One
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
This week has been pretty successful with working out. I am LOVING my fitbit. It is helping me sleep better and syncs with sparkpeople and myfitnesspal (I use myfitnesspal for tracking food more than sparkpeople--I like the app better and it syncs better with the fitbit).
I also started used Zombies Run this week. It is an app that is somewhat like roleplaying. You have to listen to the prompts, do missions, and run from zombies. I actually felt like I got the best workout of the year so far doing the first mission on it. I highly recommend it. I was using the sparkpeople 5k your way challenge, and it still works in conjunction with this, but this one is definitely more fun and motivating. For me, at least. I am up to being able to jog about 3k. Well on my way for my goal (a 5k by mid-April).
My healthy cooking challenge is going really well. I've been cooking homemade dinners at least 4 times a week --- which is about how often my husband and I can actually share a meal together. He's working nights and I'm working evenings so we don't see much of each other and when I get home he is getting ready to leave.
I haven't been as active in Sparkteams as I've wanted to be this year. I simply do not have the time for it. Any extra time has been going towards training my dogs, working, and workout out. I really don't have much left to relax and when I do, I don't like spending it on here. I like using it for sewing, etc.
Hopefully my schedule will calm down a bit or become more consistent. I am really happy with how the first 7 weeks of the year have gone, especially fitness-wise!
