Yesterday was a really busy day. I had some things to get caught up on yesterday morning before heading into work. Work was super busy and I wasn’t able to sneak away and go for a run on my lunch break. After work, I met my family and celebrated my brother’s birthday. I didn’t get home till after 9 and still hadn’t completed the green circle for the day. I am so glad for the circles because they force me to do it. I am a great procrastinator and have lots of great projects and goals that I put off. Having to complete all 3 circles every day helps me stay on track. I went to my basement and jumped on the treadmill last night. The green circle helped keep me on track tonight towards my fitness goals where, in the past, I would have easily justified it by saying I would go to the gym tomorrow. I look at Apple’s design for the Apple watch activity app with the 3 circle fitness system specifically to make you complete the rings before ending each day as both intuitive and obnoxious. To me, it has bugged me since I got the Apple watch if I didn’t complete all rings each day. I now have a few rings recorded in my Activity App on my iPhone from before the challenge that show as incomplete, and they will always show as incomplete. I feel like this card could be updated to include Apple Watch Activity App:
Pain is temporary. Incomplete rings will always show in the activity app.
There is nothing I can do now to fix the circles I have missed, but I can make sure to work harder so that it doesn’t happen again in the future.
