Activity Sharing — my favourite Apple Watch feature

Today my Apple Watch recommended I increase my daily calorie goal. Again. Ugh.

I've reached my activity goals every day for the past 43 days and it's starting to show. A big part of what keeps me motivated each day, is Activity Sharing: a feature that allows me to privately, securely, and easily share my daily progress with friends and colleagues.

It is really cool that a friend of mine from Australia and I can engage in some healthy—no pun intended—competition and help each other stay on track.

Along with the increased activity, I started slowly changing my diet. So far, I've simply reduced the amount of sweets I eat and substituted some of the carbs I usually eat with slightly fattier foods.

Besides being generally fitter and more alert, I find that all the exercise really helps with my mood and motivation throughout the day.

The Apple Watch has been great as a fitness tracker for me in the past six months but Activity Sharing improved on this a lot.

Now I need to get up and get moving because the dog just woke up; she wants to go for a walk and I have a couple hundred calories to burn before I fill that ring today.
