It was one year ago today that I started using the Map My Walk app on my iPhone to track my walks and hikes. I’ve found it to be a very good app for giving me incentive to get out there and trek around the mountains of North Carolina or the streets of a neighborhood in Orlando.
Today, I received an email from Map My Walk showing my stats for the past year:
Those 155 workouts totalling 263 miles over a period of 100 hours and burning almost 60,000 calories helped me lose 28 pounds this past year. I like that, but it’s not enough. I need to discipline myself to do more.
So I’ve set a goal of completing a minimum of 300 workouts (walks, hikes, treadmill exercises, etc,) over the next year, which would double the number I accomplished this past year. I’m anticipating that increasing my number of workouts will also increase the number of pounds I lose and gets me into even better shape.
It also noted that I have 6 friends following my progress and workouts. If you’d care to become a friend as well (you have to use the app and it’s available for more devices than just the iPhone) I’d love to see you on my list. We can cheer each other on as we get ourselves into better shape.
