This week I didn't get to my weight lifting, I go all my steps in (more on that later) but I'm up .4 lbs. I'm not going to cry over that, but I need to get back to the gym. While you can't exercise yourself out of a diet, I want to continue with my weight lifting.
There is a study from Harvard about using Fitbits (or any activity trackers). They had a number of groups:
In the end, the group that got good old hard CASH was more motivated.
Other reports show when you work activity into a group activity or game that can boost engagement, and again, if you throw in money, that seems to get people's attention.
Shocking isn't it that money motivates people...
In my opinion, the only kind of motivation is self-motivation.
If we can get our head inside the "big picture" we can see where WE WILL save money in the future by not having to rely on medicine, pills, and surgeries.
If you're interested in a Fitbit, you can check them out here. If you just want a small clip-on unit, (the ZIP) they start at $59. (these might be getting discontinued as they aren't available at Amazon).
I had purchased a Power Air Fryer XL for 159 in March. I used it weekly and while I loved it the first few times I used it, I began to dislike it and eventually threw it away. Here is why:
I looked around and Walmart and Target didn't carry more than one unit, and I wanted to be able to look into the unit to see how I could clean it. I went to Bed Bath Beyond and ended up with the NuWave Brio Air Fryer (3 quarts instead of the six quarts I previously). The price was $89. There is a six-quart version for $129.
I chose it as the basket looks like it will be easier to clean, and there is a tab in the bucket to ensure that the basket stays out of the grease (and after using it four times it does).
It also has a pre-heat option that I like (it doesn't take too long). The reviews seem where the majority are positive, and some of the negative reviews are interesting, "The oven was hot...." um yeah, yes it is.
You also need to leave from any air fryer to have space for the heat coming out of the fryer has a place to go.
