Will winter ever end? April ice.
This weekend we had an ice storm in West Michigan. We gathered about half an inch of ice where I live, but thankfully we did not lose electricity as 50,000 others did. We were fortunate. But it is April 15, why is there an ice storm when I am... Read more
I bought the Charge 2 model, which does sleep tracking. It is interesting to see the past 2 days worth of progress, I can see when I woke up and restlessness during the night. It isn't nearly as bad as I thought it might be, I was afraid my em... Read more

the cold that lasts and lasts...
So I have been sick more of the time than not since Thanksgiving. Virus after virus, I'd get better for a few days and never all the way before catching something else with different symptoms. I went in to the doctor, but had a virus. It just... Read more

In the process of moving we didn't have internet access for a while. I downloaded the app to my phone but I was too busy to use it, I didn't really care for it anyhow. My login streak was 590 days straight, now I am on day 2 (starting over). ... Read more
