Anyone Else Planning a New Self-Discipline Challenge for 2021?
I'm going to walk more with those fancy shoes that talk to my smartphone! recoding my steps. the news just said that doctors have proven that these monitoring devices push us, and we walk more with a device that measures our steps!

@Erinmfs I have not heard of shoes that talk to your phone, but I have an activity monitor, an Apple Watch, that does push me. I have goals set in it and I really want to achieve those goals every day. I don't worry too much about steps, I rarely get all of the way to 10,000 but I do much other exercise that I figure it makes up for that, plus that number was arbitrarily set by a Japanese pedometer company, it was never something that was set by medical experts! The Apple Watch does count steps and I generally am at about 8000.
My husband laughs at me and says I am controlled by a device, but I think it really is helpful to goad me on to do more.
