Fitness Apps.. well most of them.. I reached my wits end the other day and I think when My Fitness Pal reset me back again after I had a 66 day streak I said F IT!!!
Then I realized.. WHY the hell am I so tied in with these damn apps to track my fitness, my food, etc. I realized that my phone was being monopolized by apps and some I don’t even use!!! BUT because they are the latest and greatest fitness app and I got them for FREE.. I had to have them!!!
So I decided I’m breaking up with my apps. I will keep a few that I use faithfully – Nike+, Nike Training Club and Pop Sugar Active. The other fitness apps are specific to me (MindbodyConnect, Bikram Yoga Riverdale, LA Fitness) because I use them to register for yoga classes or when I go to the gym. That’s it though.. I’m giving up on the rest of them.
I am finding that I’m tracking my food in my fitness journal, then going online to track in MFP.. it’s just like when I realized checking in everytime I went somewhere wasn’t a good idea lol
Back to basics it is for me. I just can’t do it anymore. As I’m training for marathon I want life to be simple. Basic things.. and just like that I let go of the chain of my phone. No longer am I tracking on my phone and my watch.. nope.. Just via my watch and I will upload when I can.
I love pictures so I will always take a pic but I’m very much over the need to be constantly connected and allowing the world to see your journey. I’m learning to be selfish and some might be offended but my TRUE accountability partners already know everything.. I don’t need to be accountable to the world.. I can share what I want when I want..
So.. do you use a bunch of fitness apps to track your life or do you have a bunch of them you just don’t use?
