For this weeks Freaking Awesome Friday I am going to talk about another awesome app called Achievemint. This app has been in my arsenal for about 8 months and I like it a lot! What is great about Achievemint is it takes everyday tasks (drinking water, sleeping, walking, weighing yourself, logging food and more!) and awards you points for each activity. After reaching 10,000 points you get $10.00! How awesome is that?! You get money for doing things you’re already doing…exercising, eating, drinking water, etc!!
Achievemint is one of my favorite apps that I’ve been using for a couple of reasons. First off, it is a very user friendly app. First, you connect the Achievemint app to a variety of fitness/health apps you are currently using such as; Apple Health, My Fitness Pal, Fitbit, and more! Then it will automatically calculate the points via your exercise, steps, water intake, calorie counter, etc. It is a “set it and forget it” app, which is awesome! Let’s face it, in today’s world there is app for everything.
Whether you are trying to save money, track your fitness, using social media, etc., chances are you’re using a ton of apps everyday! It is nice to have a very simplistic app that takes less than 10 minutes to set up, and takes care of itself. Once set up, you do not have to think about it again until you are cashing in your earnings!
The second thing that I love about this app is the encouragement it provides to get you up and active! Since I am trying lose weight and training for a 10k, it is almost like I am getting paid to run! Think of the encouragement! They send weekly updates on how many points you earned helping you to keep yourself accountable. So when I am being lazy one week, my points will reflect it and I will be behind on my goal point count. Tyler and I took a trip to Washington DC and we walked everywhere, averaging about 5-7 miles a day. I was so excited to see how many points I was able to achieve!
Another awesome thing about Achievemint, when you sign up, you automatically get 250 points towards your reward! I have included a link here for you! Earn money while going about your day and making healthy decisions is awesome. Right now, it is only available for Apple users but hopefully Android users will be able to use it soon!
Another Freaking Awesome Friday highlight will definitely have to be giving Tyler huge props for completing his half marathon! It was so inspiring to see him achieve his goal that it kicked me up a notch! We are going to be hitting the ground as hard as possible to get debt paid off and I am going to finish my goal of a 10k in June!
