My Fitness Pal (MFP) says I’ve been active for more than 900 days and I cannot argue with that.
Many folks use MFP to reach goals which is great. I use it as a journal.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I like the way my Garmin devices synchronize with it so I don’t need to add my activities. I also record my weight and food each day. I’ve heard many people say they couldn’t write down their food and exercise every day. I don’t look at it as a chore, but a way of keeping me on track. It’s like a reference tool.
While I don’t have any certain goal to achieve in weight, calories burned or consumed, or even nutritional levels of salt, sugar, or fat, I do think seeing the numbers in front of me, helps me control the absent-minded eating which used to get me in trouble.
I switch between the mobile-app and the web site based on where I am throughout the day, they each have their pluses and minuses, however, the flexibility is really convenient.
So what’s the point of this post? Find what works for you. Figure out what things help keep you healthy because without your health everything else starts to fall apart.
