My Motivation

In early March I bought a new pair of N!ke shoes but wasn't able to get out to enjoy a lovely walk in the park until last weekend (in reality, I couldn't get my @ss off the couch) .

But...

I am in love.

With my N!ke $ensor.
You pop it in the hole under the sole and then use the N!ke app on either the iPhone or the  iTouch.

One little amazing product. As I walk it figures out how far I have gone and then when I get home, it uploads to the Nike site to record my distance, time and calories. I've hooked it to my F@cebook page and it will give a status update at the same time. I have a goal to make 12 walks this month and already have 3 down, 9 to go.

The only little wrinkle is that it keeps saying I ran and I haven't figured out how to tell it I am actually only walking. Well I guess walking is just slow running so I'll have to just leave it.

You don't need N!ke shoes to use the sensor. You can get a generic holder which attaches to your shoe but you do need the iTouch or iPhone to record the info.

If you want a little motivation do try it.

Best thing I ever bought.

Actually not. I also got myself a Pandora bracelet to celebrate the weight I've lost so far. It is a basic silver Pandora bracelet with 1 bead on it for now.

What are they going to come up with next? What a great little invention!

I love the Nike sensor! It is awesome. I had to give it up for a while because the Nike shoes do not work for me - not supportive enough, and my plantar fasciitis was coming back. So I just ordered the little holder thingy. Hope that works with my shoes!

Glad you discovered it -- btw I think it is way better than the Body Bugg, etc. Much simpler, so easy to use!

I have one too. Haven't used it in a while.. will have to get back into it. I have the holder that is just a little pouch that goes on my shoelaces, it was $2.. was so excited when I found that!
