For several years now, I have been trying to get more active, to move more, and maybe get a bit healthier in the long run. Everything I tried would last for a few days to a couple of months. Sadly, however, nothing stuck. Until this past Thanksgiving. I slipped and ended up breaking my Fitbit. A bit fed up, because this would be the 4th one in a year, I decided to switch to an Apple Watch.
For some reason, having the Apple Watch has been the change I needed. I want to close my three rings every day. Earning a badge for closing all 3 rings every day in a month is someone quite rewarding. Each month, there is a different challenge also to do, for example in January the challenge was 140 exercise minutes, February’s challenge was 16 workouts of at least 15 minutes. I want to earn these virtual badges each month. I know that Fitbit had badges also, but they didn’t motivate me the way these badges motivate me. I am also enjoying the special mini challenges that pop up every so often also.
Maybe now, I will finally be able to become successful at moving more. Just hoping that the heat and humidity in July and August don’t drive me away.
