Shape Shifters Team Chat - NOVEMBER 2022
Better than expected. My eating was okay this week, but my exercise was lackluster. Will try to get that going again.2
The December team chat is open! Please finish up this week's stats here, and go to the new thread to (re)introduce yourselves and set your December plans in motion -
While you're in planning mode, the new habit tracker is up as well:
@PatriceFitnessPal I love my Apple Watch, and especially like that it tracks multiple metrics and health data. I had a Fitbit previously and found that it encouraged me to focus solely of Steps. I would skip my strength training and other activities to “get in those steps”. I don’t know if that part of the platform has changed, it’s been 4+ years since switching to Apple.
A big plus of the Fitbit is the battery life they last days between charges.
Apple Watch needs to be charged daily. I did wear my Apple Watch for sleep tracking for a while and found it helpful. I was checking blood oxygen levels while sleeping because I have a family history of sleep apnea. If you go with Apple just be sure to charge it fully when you do, it’s kinder on the battery health.2
Steps have been low this week.
But I have my house fully decorated for the holidays with 2 trees and gnomes all over the house. Presents are already wrapped. So I guess all that took some of my stepping time.
I am starting a new 8 week exercise program that I am really looking forward to it. It will be a 7 day a week commitment, day 1 will be Monday. Wish me luck 🤪
The December Week 1 Challenge is ready to roll first thing Sunday. Let's start December with a strong week.
Better than expected. My eating was okay this week, but my exercise was lackluster. Will try to get that going again.

Why don't you join us in the step challenge this month...set a reasonable goal and don't push too hard...consistency is the key...if you don't have a tracking watch use your phone...not perfectly accurate but will work until you can reward yourself with a Fitbit, Garmin or Apple watch...LOVE my fitbit...it's my third one over the years...love the daily challenges...
