I am a huge fan of technology. I use it all the time, all the day long.
I especially use it when I exercise.
Oh. Wait. I have to bring you up to speed on my exercise. I write this while eating a candy bar - an Unreal Candy bar, given to me at a party this past week - so, the fact that I'm eating a candy bar right now might tell you my state of mind, eh?
Sorry. Tangent - oh, look, a squirrel!
MRI appt today showed no new tear, but scar tissue on the old tear. This is GOOD news. So it's still as unclear as it was - but upon new advice, I'm no longer allowed to be running. I'm now walking to comfort. I can swim (hate), elliptical (despise) and zumba is something that I'm heavily, um, well, not supposed to - but I was grudgingly told I can do it unless it hurts.
Sigh. I love, love LOVE to dance and this news isn't good. It's not bad enough to need surgery, I will probably do the stretching and the strength training and if it still bugs me in 6 months, go for the PRP. Which is about $400. And I'm wearing goofball compression sleeves.
This news is sad to me.
Here is the presentation of which I was part at Blogher. I was on a panel with three other fabulous ladies - I felt like the dummy in the bunch.
I use technology all the time to stay motivated, to keep me accountable, to keep me moving in the right direction, to make me get off my couch and put down the candy bar and get it done.
Of the ones listed, my very favorites would be Daily Mile, Jog.fm and my twitter. If you are on Daily Mile, look me up.
I'd really love to hear what you find helpful in getting your exercise in. Is there an app that you adore, a website that keeps you moving forward, or a gadget that you can't do without?
