So I’ve met my first goal of not dying young–I’m 36. The next goal is shorter: not dying.
Goals work better if you go at them while staying true to who you are. So a couch potato should be able to become one of those people that watch TV on a treadmill.
So how can I get some technology into my exercise goals?
- Heart rate monitors. Heart beats are easy to count.
- Pedometers. Steps are easy to count.
- Cybex weight machines are awesome and count repetitions, but only if you gym has that equipment
- GPS can measure how far you went.
And this feeds into that goals are supposed to be measurable.
Well, enough blogging, time to go to the gym. 45 minutes seems like a good goal.
