I have been on a roller coaster with trying to lose weight and become healthy and then falling off that bandwagon every time.
I recently tried a new app called PACT to help with my weight loss. It was recommended by a friend and I tried it out because it holds you accountable to a group of people. I did not know there was free version so I signed up where I would have to pay if I did not complete my goals.
My friend later told me I could have signed up on a trial basis to not have to pay if I did not meet my goals but I had already made the commitment and wanted to go through with it.
So my PACT goals are to:
-log my meals for three days a week and
-log 10, 000 steps for one day a week.
I found the food goal easy because I was already logging my meals with MyFitness app. I have a Jawbone UP and that logs my steps as well and I figured I would go with one day per week because I know how difficult it is for me to get those steps.
I would have to pay $5 for every day that I miss and I gain a few cents for every day that I make the goal. The amount is determined by the people who miss their goals for the day and the amount is split among those who do make it.
Recently I have been walking about a half mile to the church near my place and then walking back for a total of a little over one mile every morning. It was easy to do this because we were on break but now that classes have started back I am not sure how many days I will be able to do this in the morning.
In any case I have that PACT app reminding me to get my goals done for the week because I really do not want to pay any money!!!
How are you keeping up with your goals?
