I love technology and my Apple Watch is one of my two favorites (my iPad is the other). In addition to having the time and weather at my fingertips, I love the activity tracking. It encourages me to move more and I get to monitor how active – or inactive I’ve been. I also love the timer and alarms, ease of adding things to my reminder list when they pop into my head using Siri, and the heart rate and EKG monitoring.
I moved a lot through the 3 months I was packing and moving us to Big Canoe but I didn’t exercise much – walking, hiking, and kayaking are my favorites, and while biking was on that list, I won’t be biking here in the mountains. – so it’s time to start trying to get out there more. Adam has also slacked off and we’re back to encouraging each other to MOVE. Our Apple Watches let us share our data with each other and we have a shared family fitness photo stream where we post photos. He got out early this morning and he’s been taking Caleb with him.
Keith is the most consistently active one of the 4 of us … Adam, Chris, and I go in spurts where we’re very active and then we seem to slack off. It’s time for Chris to rejoin us too. I do love that when we’re all together that we’re usually getting out and being active with the kids too. Hiking mostly but some swimming and basketball and don’t forget I broke my ankle last fall playing kickball with them!
Unfortunately, my activity today will be housework! I’ve put some things off way to long and I need to make a start on some things like cleaning blinds and baseboards in addition to dusting and cleaning floors. I am lucky that Keith takes care of cleaning the bathrooms for me.
What do you do to stay active?
