Hello and thank you for visiting.
I recently purchased an Apple Watch. I was very excited to get it, since my sister has had one for a very long time. She uses it constantly to track her steps, heart rate and monitor her activities during the day. So when the Covid-19 arrived, and everyone was on lockdown, I thought it would be nice to start monitoring my activities. I received my watch after a few weeks, and started using it.
I have a German Shorthair Pointer, named Finn. She requires lots of walking, I never knew how much I really walked until I started using my watch! It’s a lot. She can run and walk forever and never get tired but I do!!
What I have learned is that if you set your calories to burn, say 500 each day, then you can not eat 500 calories extra. It takes 3,500 calories in a week to lose 1 pound. You would have to set your watch to burn 500 to 1000 calories per day, and combine with nutrition, it takes a combination of both diet and exercise.
I say, cut back on calories, what ever it may, potato chips, a few cans of beer, or wine, sodas, and your favorite sweets etc. everyone knows what is their cheat food, to reduce your calorie intake by just 500 calories per day, then burn the other 500 through exercise.
If you reduce your salt intake, very important, because you will retain fluid, and drink (3), 8oz. glasses of water or lemon water per day, you should lose 1lbs.-2lbs. per week!
Nutrition is the most important. You cannot just work out and expect to lose weight! Nutrition is First.
1-Set your height and weight on your Apple iPhone.
2-There is an app on your watch represented by a little green man running man. Set it for an exercise by scrolling down. This will help your watch know how what type of exercise that you are doing. When your are finished, slide to the right to stop the activity, then make sure that you go to the bottom of the activity and close out the activity, because if you don’t, you cannot start another one until you do.
The color BLUE
Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It represents stability, trust and loyalty. It is a color that is beneficial to our minds and body. It has a very calming effect on us, and can actually slow down our metabolism. The color Blue is a great color for your bedroom. It may make you sleep better!
