Re: Quantified pointlessness
THe phenomenon of being intimidated by the "ultra fit" is one of those excuses like " I'll start exercising tomorrow", or "Just one more donut, then I'll skip lunch." I've been wearing a fit bit for about a year now. I'm not ultra fit, no where close, and I don't sync up every single day like I did when I first got it. But I use it every day and with the forums and the social online community I can find people to follow that's are not ultra fit, but they are just a bit more fit, giving me a goal to work toward. Adjusting your perspective to see the people almost like you make changes, help you to get a point of influence from them. I was particularly motivated when my sister in law (same build, same weight, about same health) ran a 5k for the first time. It's all about finding the little things that inspire. Who else here has been inspired by the data from thier quantified self, or someone else's?
