There's an app for that


Usually I like throwing myself into things, but I'm struggling to cope a bit at the moment so I'm not trying to do everything at once. What I am doing, however, is covered by cute new apps.

I have my "Headspace" for my daily meditation.

Yesterday I downloaded "Plant Nanny" - every time you drink water you get to water your virtual plant and it grows. Very cute.

And today I downloaded "Carrot Fit" that has 7-minute workouts. Carrot is a harsh taskmistress and makes it fun by being rudely abusive. Pushups become bowing before Cthulu. For squats she says you can wee on the floor if you want but to remember she isn't waterproof. Stepping up on a chair to get away from an aggressive mouse. The kids did it with me and thought it was very funny. I'm not really that keen on that sort of exercise but it's only 7-minutes (12 exercises for 30 seconds each, 10 second break), and guided by a robot overlord, so I'll give it a try.


  1. I've used Headspace before (I love it, just fell out of the habit...). I'll have to check out the other two. They sound like fun! Hope you're doing OK.

  2. I can't wait to get my new phone next month so I can upgrade it and get more apps - I have an iPhone 4, but it doesn't have a lot of storage and I want more apps! Love the water one!

    1. I have the iPhone 4 as well and I have to keep deleting things to fit new ones on. My music takes up most of the space. Not much storage for what you need these days. I am ruthless with the kids' games if they don't play them regularly.
