  13. RT @nmhouston: hi #prodchat — I’m Natalie, a #productivity coach & academic. I help people to stop procrastinating and move forward w/ their goals.

  15. Hi #prodchat, I study and consult on school leader productivity. Big OmniFocus & GTD fan.
  16. RT @rsidneysmith: Q1: HOW DO YOU PLAN A #FITNESS ROUTINE PRODUCTIVELY (TO AVOID INJURY, BURNOUT, DEMOTIVATION)? #PRODCHAT #productivity
  17. RT @rsidneysmith: Q1: HOW DO YOU PLAN A #FITNESS ROUTINE PRODUCTIVELY (TO AVOID INJURY, BURNOUT, DEMOTIVATION)? #PRODCHAT #productivity
  18. A1: cross-training with different kinds of activities, and planned rest days #prodchat
  19. #prodchat A1 I use an iPhone app with short, paced workouts I can do while watching TV. Not super intense, but pretty consistent.
  20. A1 ill be honest here- I don’t have one… would like to establish one though #prodchat
  21. A1: also important for #productive fitness: ask what increases your physical fitness? your mental fitness? spiritual? #prodchat
  22. RT @rsidneysmith: Q2: WHAT ARE SOME FUNDAMENTALS FOR BUILDING THE HABIT OF GOOD #NUTRITION AND #EXERCISE? #PRODCHAT #productivity
  23. #prodchat A2 You can only move forward from where you are, not where you wish you were. Start small & build habits.
  24. A1 I used a paper calendar to map out my runs and workouts when marathon training. It was motivating to see my progress in writing #prodchat
  25. I’m in a fb group called 40FOR40 where we work out for 40 hrs in 40 days and post our progress #prodchat it’s by 1 of the biggest loser guys
  26. @nmhouston I really don’t have any excuses… busy w/ work and family but still, no excuses #ProdChat
  27. A2: Start with baby steps if it feels overwhelming. Small habits form a good foundation for nutrition & exercise. #prodchat
  28. .longlivefit is tweeting via #prodchat but it’s not appearing in the feed so I’m retweeting her answers! FYI.
  29. A2 for easy nutrition changes, focus first on adding green vegetables and whole grains to your diet. Simple steps with big payoff. #prodchat
  30. RT @audaciouslady: I’m in a fb group called 40FOR40 where we work out for 40 hrs in 40 days and post our progress #prodchat it’s by 1 of the biggest loser guys
  31. #prodchat A2 I try to avoid combining ambitious goals with things I dislike. Ex: work out at night, not early, as I am not an early riser.
  32. A2 For nutrition, I’ve found food journaling helpful. I like using paper for this one too. #prodchat
  33. .@LongLiveFit wrote about getting fit during holidays, but I think it’s applicable just as much right now!  http://ow.ly/h4Nfl prprodchat
  34. I use the streaks app. I get competitive about keeping my streak alive. @nmhouston: yes, tracking your workouts is so motivating #prodchat
  35. @eduleadership I mix the workouts. I hate the treadmill, but don’t mind working legs. I do them on the same day. Elliptical/arms #prodchat
  36. @nmhouston Does going to gym only to hit steam room and shower count fir anything?? Srsly. #prodchat
  37. +1 ;) RT @rgfeal: @nmhouston Does going to gym only to hit steam room and shower count fir anything?? Srsly. #prodchat
  38. I read that calorie counting apps really help people lose weight. I’m bad about using one, though. #prodchat
  39. Does anyone have any ideas why @LongLiveFit is not appearing in the #prodchat feed? :-(
  40. @nmhouston In my productive exercise years I kept a daily log of what I did. #prodchat
  41. I’ve used stickers on a wall calendar for yoga challenges– the analog version of that app @profkrg #prodchat
  42. @profkrg not sure what #prodchat is all about, but I use WeightWatchers online tracking helps me think fats, proteins, carbs, etc.
  43. @profkrg #prodchat Yeah, I really dislike running and anything that strains my neck (like squats with bar) bu elliptical is good.
  44. @JPlovesCOTTON we’re talking about productive health and fitness routines tonight. #prodchat
  45. @rgfeal Yes, I think so. Steam room is helpful for detoxing and relaxing. (Remember, I do #Bikram yoga –big fan of the heat) #prodchat
  46. @rsidneysmith Not unless her twitter account was hacked recently. Even if fixed, could be excluded from search for a while. #prodchat
  47. @profkrg planning ahead has always helped me. Count them all before the week even starts. #ProdChat
  48. Hi everybody! On my way out so I can’t stick around. Miss y’all! #prodchat
  49. @rsidneysmith I can’t see @LongLiveFit in the stream in either of two different twitter clients. no idea why. #prodchat

  51. .@LongLiveFit RT @eduleadership: was her twitter account was hacked recently?. Even if fixed, could be excluded for a while. #prodchat
  52. @nmhouston There’s a 7:30 am gentle yoga. I wish I had the motivation to be there. #prodchat
  53. @LongLiveFit Agreed. the fitbit I have has a component that represents that too. :) #prodchat
  54. RT @LongLiveFit: A3:a. haha I get this all the time! I actually do most of my workouts either with clients or squeeze in gym time #prodchat
  55. #prodchat I also have a couple of yoga programs on my iPad which are great for travel, need to play more strenuous #kinect games too
  56. RT @LongLiveFit: A3:b It’s not about the length of time u spend working out its the quality of it, so finding little chunks… #prodchat
  57. @rgfeal have you ever been to that class? or a similar one, or same teacher? can you imagine how it will make you feel? #prodchat
  58. MT @LongLiveFit: @nmhouston Exactly! Your mind is the most powerful tool you have. …you have to start w/ the mind #prodchat
  59. MT @LongLiveFit: @JPlovesCOTTON A heart rate monitor is also very effective! It enables u to measure calories & your heart rate #prodchat
  60. RT @nmhouston: I’ve used stickers on a wall calendar for yoga challenges– the analog version of that app @profkrg #prodchat
  61. @LongLiveFit maybe try to log out of Twitter and Tweetchat and log back in! #prodchat
  62. +1 most people don’t really know how hard they are working MT @LongLiveFit: A heart rate monitor is also very effective! #prodchat
  63. Yes! I used to love using my heart rate monitor for self-monitoring and challenging! #prodchat
  64. Q4: DO’S/DON’T’S FOR WORKOUTS? TRACK YOUR EXERCISES/NUTRITION? IF YES, WHAT SHOULD YOU MEASURE? #PRODCHAT
  65. RT @rsidneysmith: Q4: DO’S/DON’T’S FOR WORKOUTS? TRACK YOUR EXERCISES/NUTRITION? IF YES, WHAT SHOULD YOU MEASURE? #PRODCHAT
  66. Another app I like for tracking strength workouts is Jefit — can design your routines, track progress #prodchat
  67. RT @LongLiveFit: A4: a. Measure your inches lost thru the skinfold test or tape measure! #prodchat
  68. RT @LongLiveFit: A4: a …Avoid using the BMI it doesn’t take into acct muscle mass #prodchat
  69. A4 for health, I’ve started tracking my sleep with an app called Sleep Cycle. #prodchat
  70. A4 When starting out, track just that you did something. Put a star on calendar, see them line up in a chain. #prodchat
  71. A4 Later on, track weight lifted, miles run, etc. But not if it makes you anxious. #prodchat
  72. A4 Sleep Cycle has really shown me how much better I sleep through the night depending on when I go to sleep! Who knew?! #prodchat
  73. +1 RT @nmhouston: A4 When starting out, track just that you did something. Put a star on calendar, see them line up in a chain. #prodchat

  75. .@michgunn is that sleep tracking app with a device like Fitbit? #prodchat
  76. Sleep Cycle is an iPhone app. No other stuff necessary. You lay the phone near your pillow and it registers your movements. #prodchat
  77. Yeah, sleep, it turns out IS very important. ;) My 20-hour work days were really killing me. ;) #prodchat
  78. Q5: YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN DIETS, WHY? HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND SOMEONE SHOULD EAT TO BE HEALTHY? #PRODCHAT
