Wait! Before you read the rest of this post, I want you to tell my what you thought this post was about based on the title. I'd love to hear what you guys think "taking the plunge" might mean to me.
Go ahead. Leave a comment. Take a wild guess.
Did you do it?
Okay. You can keep reading now.
I'm considering getting a smart phone. I've put it off for years. I like having a little phone that fits in my pocket (or more specifically, that fits in my hand while I'm out running). I don't want a big, bulky phone.
I do want a nice pretty week-view calendar on my phone.
(Week Calendar App. I want this. Oh, and 10 points to you if you find what's funny about the sample calendar above.)
I do want an easy way to track my calories until I'm back to my "skinny" weight.
I do want to log my workouts without having to get on the computer.
I do want to easily budget and track expenditures (and be able to share that tracking with Christian) in real time.
I do want to have access to Google Maps since I am forever leaving home without remembering to look up where I'm going. (Case in point: I got off the train the other day and then remembered that I didn't actually know which road to take to get home...)
I do want to easily post pictures to Facebook from my phone.
And I do want to have easy access to my beloved to-do lists. (Although it will be hard for me to let go of handwritten to-do lists on paper. Those are my favorite.)
Back to the don'ts.
I don't want to be checking my email constantly. I'm on the internet all day as it is.
I don't want to be looking at my phone instead of playing with my boys (or whatever other important things are going on in my life).
(LOVE this commercial. I laugh every time.)
I don't want to pay for the "data package" with my cell phone plan.
This may not happen for a while since we're trying to cut back on expenses, not add new ones. So we'll see.
Those of you with smart phones: Which phone do you have? Do you LOVE it? And which apps are "essentials" to your life?
