Starts with G…

G is for…this new gadget I picked up today. It’s my reward for finishing my 3 week BeachBody accountability challenge. I have considered getting one for a while, but today I read a few articles that pushed me to finally do it. I’m a very goal oriented person, so things like activity trackers and the like motivate me. So far I have one run under my belt with this Apple Watch (though I forgot to hit start and track it as an indoor run…doh! Learning curve!) and it told me that my little 30 minute run burned 258 calories. I love having info like this at my fingertips! I plan on doing a strength workout later this evening.

My BB coach invited me to participate in a new challenge which goes for 90 days, though it has already been in progress for about a month. I’m all signed up and ready to go. The My Challenge app is really awesome. I love using it to post before/after pics, record my workouts, and chat with similarly minded ladies. I feel like this last challenge changed me. Exercise doesn’t feel like as much of a chore. I even look forward to it most days. I feel better about myself physically and mentally.

Maybe I really should become a BB coach, huh? Something to think about.
