Get paid to workout! Pact App

Get paid to workout!

Get paid for living healthy!

This is an amazing app and I cannot sing it’s praises enough! I am literally getting paid to do something that I am already doing. Easiest money ever!

So what is the Pact app?
Pact basically uses money as a motivator to get you to go to the gym, track your food or eat your veggies! Each week you’re rewarded for all the healthy things you do by the members that didn’t.

How it works?
Each week you make a pact. You can either commit to going to the gym, eating your veggies or tracking your food. Or if you really want to push yourself you can commit to all of these pacts! You decide how much money you are willing to pay if you don’t follow through with these commitments. If you don’t follow through with your pact – you lose the money you committed to paying if you failed. If you do successful meet your pact – you get money.

All my monies!!

All my monies!!

Now you don’t get a whole lot – on average between 10 and 20 cent for each successfully carried out Pact. But this money soon starts to add up! You are going to be doing these healthy things anyway so you might as well get some money for it! At the moment I currently have 293 activities logged and have earned $36.41. For literally just taking photos of stuff I’m already doing and logging in workouts. It’s really easy money!

Logging your Pacts

Logging your Pacts

Now I know I only logged 5 veggies but I swear I ate more. Most of the time though I forget to take a pic so I’ve purposely left my pact for veggies on the low side! But some people log 35 veggie pics a week so earn a lot more than me!

My favourite things – Water Alert

Standard

One of the things I really struggle with is drinking enough water in the day. Every morning I would fill my water bottle up but inevitably it would sit there untouched for hours! I would buy bottles of water when I would be out and about with the notion that I would drink on the go – but instead it just ended up being a heavy weight in my handbag! (Hey at least I was getting a bit of strength training!)

It really frustrated me that I couldn’t get myself to drink the water I needed. I saw a few girls I follow on Instagram using water monitoring apps and I thought, hey – that could work for me! I ended up downloading pretty much all the apps that were on offer just to see what they were all like. In the end I kept Water Alert because I could tailor it to my needs.

WATER ALERT

The first thing I like about Water Alert is that I can customise the glass sizes. This way I can have how much my favourite mug holds and can accurately measure what I’m drinking. No more estimating how much is in the cup! You can also set it to oz/ml/l, whichever way you prefer! You can also set your own goal for how much water you consume.

You can change the measurements of each of them

The second thing I like is that you can also customise the notification that reminds you to drink. Here are a few of my reminders!

I love that you can customise the reminders!

You can set the reminders to notify you at any time, which is also a good feature. Mine tend to be focused around my time at work.

It also generates a log of all the water you’d drank, which is helpful to see if there is patterns in your drinking habits. Do you struggle to get your water in at the weekend? Never manage to drink it all on a Tuesday? You’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where you need to improve.

Overall it is a simple and effective app, and one that has made a huge impact on my water drinking habits!
