The Mighty Up

October 21, 2015

My Jawbone UP (same idea as a FitBit) is shaping up to be pretty cool. I like keeping track, in general (can you tell I'm an accountant's daughter?). My new mantra is "you manage what you measure." The UP is helping me get a better idea of how much exercise & sleep I get. (More sleep & less exercise than I'd thought.)

My favorite feature is the UP's "idle alert," which zaps me with a little buzz-shock if I haven't gotten up & moved around in half an hour. (You can set it for as little as 15 minutes or as long as an hour.) I jump up & walk to the end of the hall & back. Not a lot of exercise each time, but it adds up.
