I used a FitBit for several years, mainly to track steps for the day, and for the first year or so, to track sleep. I’ve since just been using Google Fit for step tracking (one less thing to carry). It’s probably accurate enough when I have my phone on me. As long as I get reasonably close to 10K steps per day, that’s good enough to validate that I didn’t forget to get up from my desk every once in a while.
I use the following apps daily:
Zero - Fasting Tracker to time and track my intermittent fasts (I do a daily 17/7).
Rep Counter (GTG) which is a very simple rep counter that I use to keep track of my kettlebell workout.
Goal Tracker another very simple app that let’s you simply check off a day where you’ve completed a goal. I do this to track days that I complete a workout. The app is inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s productivity tip:
”Get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step is to get a big magic marker.
For each day that you do your task, put a big mark over that day. After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.
Don’t break the chain.”
The app can be used for most anything, and it works pretty well in keeping you focused on creating a habit (hopefully a good one).
