I think I should start a weight loss program and get people to pay to do lawn work in exchange for weight loss. Instead of Cross Fit, I'd call it Lawn Fit.

My Galaxys4 came with an app called S Health that measures your steps and tells you how many miles you have walked. I have found it very accurate.

Ha ha, true... I'm like a bear that goes foraging whenever Dec 1st comes around. I've got to keep different waist pants for summer vs. winter! haha

I wonder how many miles I walk with a trimmer
One job 4 trimmers there about 4 hrs each

I have a GPS for a dog I could use I used one time on my mower and in 1 hour I traveled 9 miles on the mower

My POS droid can't even hold a charge while something is running, the batteries suck and cannot remove them.
