Up by my bootstraps

I’ve reached another point in my life where I’m not so happy with the way I look and feel.  I’m not obese, but I am a good 15 pounds over my ideal weight.

I have to get my butt into gear and start exercising and eating right again.  The latter is made more difficult by the well stocked and FREE snack bar at my workplace.

I need to consider ways to turn the experience into a game.  As someone who keeps track of daily steps and analyzes the details on my runs, I need something that will allow me to ‘Level Up’ based upon my progress in order to force me to abide by the diet.

I’ve tried DietBet and I have found that isn’t enough of an incentive for me.  Zombies, Run! works great for motivating me during runs.  I think I’m going to work on seeing if there is a pre-built app; if not, I might just create my own game.  It will be analog, but who cares as long as it works.
