I have to gush one more time about how much I am digging my BodyMedia Fit armband. I swear I am not getting paid --yet-- to say all of these wonderful things about BobyMedia Fit. I am just impressed that it can do everything it does.
Yesterday I had ever good intention of going out and getting a lot of walking in. Instead I went to see a matinee showing of Friends With Benefits. It was actually a fun movie. Kind of a chick flick, but enjoyable none the less. Having Mila Kunis as the leading lady in a movie never hurts either.
Next came dinner at a Peruvian Restaurant called Inka Mama's. If you have never tried Peruvian food you are missing out. They have this amazing green sauce called aji that you would swear has a bunch of calories from fat but it is mostly iceberg lettuce, Serrano chilies and garlic. It's a dieter's dream sauce.
Anyway, before I knew it, it was almost 9:00 p.m. and I was about 2,500 step away from reaching my modest daily goal of 5,000 steps. The BodyMedia Fit app for the iPhone has a workout feature where you can select a workout by the number of calories you want to burn, or for a certain length of time, or by the number of steps you want to take. I set a 3,000 step workout goal and headed out the door. It was a nice clear evening with temperatures in the mid 60's. As I walked, the armband would update my iPhone every 10 seconds or so. The display showed the number of steps I had taken in giant hot pink numbers. (Sorry, I didn't take a screenshot of the display.) After one loop around the neighborhood I was over 3,000 steps and went over my goal for the day.
