I am going to use this blog to keep track of my workouts. I've been following some people who do this and I think it will be a nice diary to refer back to. I also just treated myself to a FitBit One. I had some Target Gift Cards that I've been holding on to. I've been using a pedometer app on my iPod, but I only use it when I take the dogs on their walks. I don't wear it when I do my daily activities. I'm curious to see how much I move throughout the day. The only bummer is it doesn't track weight lifting activities, yoga, and Pilates. Another app I am going to start using is the Spark People food and activity tracker. I hate tracking my food because I know what I'm doing wrong and I don't want to see it. I started tracking my food today and so far so good. The nice thing is that the bad snack foods that I kept munching on is all gone. I ate it all!
Another reason I'm trying to start tracking my activity and food intake is my current state of employment. I am hoping to get a job soon and it might have me either at a desk or in a car for prolonged periods of time. This is completely different than my last job. I was always moving around and never got to sit down. The only time I sat was to go to the bathroom and that was only if I was lucky! Now I'm just waiting to see what type of career I will start in my 40's!
