Pokémon Go unintentional health hack!?
The latest augmented reality app, Pokémon Go was released last week and faithful fans have fully committed to the slogan, "Get Up, Get Out, and Explore!" Pokémon Go player mission: capture as many wild Pokémon as you can, but you have to leave your couch…and your house.
Gamers and even some non-gamers get out your smart phone and begin your Pokémon adventure in your own neck of the woods. Players literally have to mill around the real world. I have to give the creators mad props because this game has motivated unintentional exercise. My husband has been a Pokémon fan since grade school. "It's the nostalgia the game brings," says my husband when commenting on why he wants to play. He has no problem taking longer evening stroll just to have the opportunity to find more. He bragged on how many miles he had walked since beginning. Others are also bragging out load on social media.
30 minutes of walking and all I got was EXERCISE. Ugh. #PokemonGO— Gabe Bondoc (@gabebondoc) July 10, 2016
Just walked at least 8km the past 3 hours, nice to have such a great motive to do cardio exercise now #PokemonGo— Rhys (@Kylo__Renn) July 12, 2016
I swear I've done more exercise this week because of #PokemonGO then I have in my entire existence😅— Lauren Gill (@Gill_Laurenn) July 11, 2016
There is even an interval training workout.
It make me wonder what more games like this could do for the state of obesity levels.....or will Pokemon be responsible for ridding the USA of obesity? I don't care how it happens, as long as it does.
Just remember to look both ways before crossing the street. Have fun!
Are you playing? What are your thoughts?

Water is Winning!
Soda...Not so much...
Hydrate with water daily for overall good health. Replacing one 12 oz soda with water each day can cut close to 1300 calories a week. If you keep that up you will slowly see about a half a pound weight loss each week which is 26 pounds a year. That small reduction with weight loss SIGNIFICANTLY reduces risk of chronic disease like diabetes and heart disease. Think about it!
TIP: Not a fan of water? No worries! Set small daily goals. For instance try to drink 2-4 oz of water each day this week. That's about 4 gulps. Increase by 1 oz each week to slowly reach a goal of around 64 oz per day. You got this!
