Using Tech to Get Out and Work Off Some Turkey and Pie!

November 23, 2016

Researchers seem to ground on 4,500 calories and a whopping 229 grams of fat for a Thanksgiving Dinner.  And for those of us that do the work in “Fixing it”  the days leading up to it and the prep itself is full of “tasting” and checking our work.  We are maxed out even before the bird is carved!

Think About The After Party!

Exercising after the meal may be not what you have in mind, but I know iPokemont is what I need and my friends with kids and grandkids can accomplish some fun and exercise with the latest Pokemon GO Thanksgiving Event.  Those of us late to the Pokemon Go craze, this gives us the opportunity to have fun with the kids, get some exercise and try something new! (Isn’t it better than feeling frustrated when it feels like all they do is look at a screen?)

There is a great article in Forbes that can fill you in on the details, but here is a snippet to start your conversation with your “young-‘uns.”

“…Starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.”

Pokemon Go only launched in July, so don’t feel bad if you haven’t joined in the fun, yet. There was a Halloween event and now this for Thanksgiving- perhaps a Christmas one too?  Here is a post right from the source if you are familiar.

Why Wait for the New Year?

In the Northeast this year we don’t have enough (or any) snow to go sliding, so dust off and charge up that “fit-bit” you got last year go for a walk while the sidewalks are clear and work off some of that Apple Pie!

*Thank you Pokemon Go for your image.
