Use your “app-ti-tude”

App-ti-tude

Dedication, desire, motivation, reward – things you need to make any fitness app work. I know that. But part of me is waiting for an app that “knows” what I have eaten, records it for me, flashes an update on my eye glasses every hour, and physically alerts me with a nudge or a pinch when I stray outside the plan. Probably not gonna happen. In the meantime…here are some fitness apps to try in 2014 (my current fave is Lose It!).

Do you have a favorite fitness app that works for you?

Taking Your Blood Pressure

It’s heart month! Is monitoring your blood pressure giving you stress? There are many tools available to help you learn to use an at-home monitor. Choose the right monitor for your needs. Watch the instructional video so you feel comfortable using your machine. Take your blood pressure regularly and track it. Give your doctor a history of your blood pressure numbers at your next appointment. It might eliminate the stress of those high spikes in the doctor’s office. Most importantly, take your blood pressure medication. Talk with your doctor if your medication is not working for you. (Estimate your health risks from high blood pressure. Take the quiz.)
