App I Love: Stretchly


My January was a little bit of a bust – I was probably only about half successful with my New Year’s resolutions (which I still haven’t even formally blogged about!). But I’m taking the new month as an opportunity to recommit to my goals and habits, and one of those new habits is my use of the Stretchly app on my computer. Stretchly is a simple computer app that pops up periodic reminders on your desktop for you to take either a microbreak or a full break. You can program how long of an interval to go between each microbreak, …

App I Love: Habitbull

In January, I started using a new app, and I love it so much that I’ve been opening it at least daily. (It helps that the app has a feature you can enable to pop up and remind you to use it each night, for when I’m forgetful.) Habitbull is a simple habit tracker that allows you to tally how well you stick to your goals, and I think it’s made a big difference in how I approach mine. After downloading the app, you’ll be prompted to set up as many habits as you like to track. I recommend starting …

February Goal Progress: Week 2 Check In


I’m not going to sugar coat it: this was a really crappy weekend! I woke up on Friday with my voice about two octaves lower than my normal, and the cold continued to get worse throughout the weekend. I kept slowly canceling plans all weekend (including seeing Becky in Breck!), until by Sunday afternoon, I was sick enough to put a moratorium on seeing people altogether – I didn’t want to make anyone else sick. I’m incredibly frustrated that this is the second weekend in three weeks that I’ve had this cold. I’ve heard from neighbors, friends, and coworkers that …

App I Love: MailTime


If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I’m not a fan of text messaging. I find it intrusive and disruptive, and don’t understand why an email doesn’t achieve the same purpose if it’s not intended to be urgent. After all, everyone has email on their phones now, right? But I understand I’m in the minority on that, and further, I understand that there are a whole group of people who feel the opposite way as me. They hate email, and wish it could be more like their beloved text messaging. So when I heard …

How “Gaming” Suppressed My Appetite


A few weeks ago, Amazon had a day where they offered lots of apps for free. I ended up downloading a bunch of apps for my Kindle, including a few games. And the one I’ve been playing the most? Sonic The Hedgehog 2, of course. I loved Sonic when I was a kid, probably because I didn’t own a Sega and so I could only play it at my friends’ houses. Getting to play it anytime I want? Outstanding. (Though I do usually restrain myself from playing in public places.) I got pretty stuck on the “Sky Chase” zone for …
