RunKeeper (RK). RK is a GPS-enabled activity tracker with a bunch of nice extra features, and the ability to sync data with other apps.
this link will take you, dear reader, to my public RunKeeper profile page. I've been loving this app so much that I need to get some new shoes. Any suggestions?
RunKeeper also will receive data from FitBit. This way RK gets my calorie intake, my weight, and my other calories burned each day. The only hiccup is that RK doesn't send data back to FitBit, so I have to manually transfer activity data. Truthfully it's not that important since FitBit still monitors my stepping while I am "fitness walking" or whatever, but RK keeps a better track of calories for other activities (like eliptical exercise or hiking in the woods). There is also other gadgetry that can intergrate with RK, like heart-rate and blood-pressure monitors which might be cool in the future. Anyway, I've added a RunKeeper widget to the blog so you can see my recent activities, or if you want to be friends on RK here is a link to my public profile.
My diet is getting better. Big drop in carbs, but not yet as low as I want it to get. I really got to watch myself on the weekends. Not a lot of change in number of calories and I actually took far fewer steps, but still a bit of weight loss. As the semester winds down I should be able to ramp up my activity too. Anyway, the weekly progress report is as follows:
Calories in: 19,133 (-1817)
Net Carbs: 506g (18%)
