Secrets of Success

Pedometer Motivation



Wearing a pedometer and trying to get 10k steps - you go about your day thinking your being very active, you check the pedometer and you're no where near 10K steps. So I make a game out of it. Heating my lunch in the microwave I march in place. Cooking dinner I try to work as inefficiently as possible - one thing to the trash at a time, drying a single dish at a time and putting it away. Taking many trips up and down stairs rather than carrying all at once. Its fun and motivating!!

    I love the ap but really wish SP would add the bar code scanner to the add food. It is in other aps and is very useful when snacking. - by ORANGELIZARD
