Garmin 735 XT Review

When Garmin announced the 735XT I was actually in the process of shopping for a new Fitness watch that could do relatively everything. I had become disenchanted with the Apple Watch Series 1 and its lack of features geared towards hardcore athletes. I was especially disappointed by its lack of reliability when it came to GPS tracking of activities and an inability to export activity data from the default Health app.

Week by Week – W16Y2017

16 Apr , 2017 Culture,Lifestyle,Sports,Technology

We’ve started our no car experiment. We turned in our last car a week ago when the lease ended and made no plans to purchase a replacement. We are going to test out the next 90 days without a car and see if that makes a huge lifestyle difference. Between Lyft, Marta, Walking, Cycling and ZipCar, we hope we won’t notice too much of a difference. This challenge is driven by a desire to live a more minimalist lifestyle and one that has a meaningfully positive impact on the environment.

If last week was busy, go, go, go. This week was definitely chillax. I felt older than ever but that is thanks to the increased training load. The fall weather is starting to creep in and we’re starting to get the decorations and planning in order. Fall is by far our favorite time of year. Living in Georgia, it is the relief you earn after suffering through the brutal summer heat and humidity.

Tech Tip – Social Clean Up

30 Aug , 2014 Culture,Lifestyle,Technology

I recently took on challenge to unlike/un-follow every non-personal social media profile that I wasn’t personally connected to. The idea came to me after reading a few articles on the affect that all those pages we like on Facebook have on the feed of posts we actually see in the app. My interest stemmed, from trying to take a week long break from social media only to come back to it and find that I couldn’t really navigate my way through the noise of posts and updates that cluttered my various feeds. It felt like tools that were supposed to help me connected to friends and family only left me better informed about companies I had liked than the people I cared about. At the same time I came across a couple of articles that hit on the same notes.
