This week's theme is Making Fitness Goals Fun with Tech!

Exercise can be entertaining if you let it be! There are so many apps that allow for customized workouts and fitness tracking. One example is the Fitbit app. The Fitbit app is a great tool for tracking your health goals. You do not need a Fitbit watch to make an account—everything is free! There is so much you can do on this app: step-tracking, challenges with family, community groups for your interests, workout routines, and diet and nutrition tracking. 
Action Item: Make a Fitbit account and play around with it!
  1. Download the app here:
2. Challenge friends to step-count challenges
3. Log your progress with one of the nutrition, weight, or mood trackers
4. Connect with people of similar interests and hobbies in a community
Moving Through the Week:

Create a consistent schedule of tracking your health progress on the Fitbit app. Being aware of your accomplishments and setbacks will motivate you to continue exercising!

If you are technically challenged, remember that the low tech pedometer can also give you a baseline of information.
