Start today

Start today

Procrastination is not your friend.  Being proactive about your health has to start now!  Let today be your start day.  Today is the day I will walk twenty minutes.  Today is the day I will drink water instead of a diet drink.  Today I will track my steps.  @fitwatchr is here to get you started.  Don’t wait another day.  Tomorrow can last forever and show up on your scale as ten extra pounds.

 

Start today.

Start today.

Picture your health as a train on the tracks. In order for that train to reach it’s destination, it has to start moving forward. Getting healthy is the same way. You have to start moving to get healthy. Stop waiting until after this holiday or that weekend vacation. Just do it today. Every day should be treated like a good health day. This does not mean you have to be perfect. It means you have to do it now. Don’t let your “caboose” drag you backwards. Be the conductor and start your trip now!

 

 

Apps for support

Apps for support

In this world of technology, we hear “there’s an app for that”, “use this app for support”, “download this app”.    Well, it’s true, there really is an app to support you.  @fitwatchr we are here to help you meet your weight loss goals.  Think of @ftiwatchr as your assistant to your end goal.  We offer apps that support Fitbit, Misfit, Jawbone Up and Withings Pulse fitness devices.  However, our number one priority is YOU!   We want to help you succeed.  Your health is our number one priority. At fitwatchr you are important to us and we want to help you succeed.

 

Never give up

Never give up

Congratulations for working towards a healthier you!  The first step in making a change for the better is just starting.  Wake up every day and write down your goals.  If you break it down on a day to day basis, it does not feel as overwhelming.  It can be as simple as “today I will walk for 20 minutes and increase my water intake”.   Don’t compare yourself to other people.  We all have our own unique challenges and what might be easy for one person can be very difficult for another.  If you make a mistake, don’t give up.  Be proud of the healthy choices you make and reward yourself for your good behavior.   We are human and being perfect is impossible.  Do your best every day to work toward a healthier lifestyle.  @fitwatchr we are here to support you.

Fitness Friends

Sometimes we need a little help from our fitness friends.  Think of using one of our many apps to assist you with your  weight loss goals.  @fitwatchr we offer four apps to pair up with one of your fitness tracking devices.   If you own a Fitbit, Misfit, Jawbone up, or a Withings pulse we have apps to sync with each one of these devices.  People are more successful at reaching goals when they have the tools and support to give them a helping hand.  Use one of these apps and watch your weight fall off faster.  @fitwatchr we want to be your fitness friend.

 

 

Tis the season to be wheezing.

Tis the season to be wheezing.

Spring has arrived with it’s beautiful flowers, trees and nice green grass. If you have allergies, spring is not just a thing of beauty, it’s a threat to your health.  If you enjoy exercising outside but the pollen takes you down, consider some of these tips.  First of all, there is no way to completely avoid pollen.  However, early morning and later evening tend to have lower pollen counts.  Try to avoid outdoor exercise on really windy days.  If your Doctor can recommend taking antihistamines, take them before you get active outside.  If you suffer from asthma and have a rescue inhaler, always take it with you.  As soon as you complete your outdoor workout, the next stop should be the shower.  Wash that pollen away!  If you are already suffering from bad allergies, just hit the gym.  Sometimes a workout inside is better than an allergy flare.  @fitwatchr wants you to take care!
