I just heard about Gymwatch.
This tool helps make sure you never cheat. You strap it on and it notices your movement, and how fast you move. So if you're doing a dumbell swing and are going to high, it will warn you. If you're not doing enough movement, it doesn't count it. If you're swinging too fast, it alerts you .
Here is a quick video
I'm Stronger Than That
Recently I knew I was going to spend a whole week away from my accountability partner. I could eat whatever I want and have 7 days to do damage (if any) repair. So I did.
The interesting news is in one day, I had ice cream, a hamburger, and extra helpings of fruits and veggies. The damage?
I was surprised to step on the scale and be up almost 2 lbs. This was not a fluke, as the next 6 days I watched what I ate, got at least 7 hours of sleep and 10,000 steps on my fitbit. So by the time I got home I was not only back to where I started, but down a 1lb.
Now there were days that I wanted to push the envelope further and have another cheat day. Well I saw how backwards I went, and how quickly it happened. I know the further back I go, that is jut a deeper hole I have to dig myself out of.
So when the cravings, and the temptations kicked in, I just kept reminding myself of one thing:
I'm stronger than that.
Whatever it was.
I'm stronger than that resse's cup.
I'm stronger than the ice cream.
I'm stronger than mountain dew.
I will not let you beat me.
I choose to move past you.
and I would do something active. I would not sit on the couch.
So I'm here to tell you, that you are stronger than you think you are.
