Using Docs and Spreadsheets to Monitor Health and Fitness

By Robyn Wright

When we talk about our mobile devices, we almost always mention some of the latest and greatest apps. However, apps are not always the answer. It’s still possible to use old-school computer programs to get a result that is just as good. With the cloud and the ever increasing power of today’s mobile devices, we can now create, view, and edit these programs from any device just about anywhere we choose.

Health and fitness monitoring is a great example of how we can use these more traditional programs. Tracking our exercise routines and dietary information can help us evaluate what we are doing (or are not doing), and assist us in setting realistic goals. Our doctors will also appreciate this information, so they can spot potential problems and develop treatment plans.

While many document and spreadsheet programs work across different platforms, there are programs that are optimized for specific operating systems. One of the benefits of using these more traditional tools is that you can easily print them out, create reports, and edit the layouts. While apps may offer some of these features, they are generally not as flexible as documents and spreadsheets.

Windows Operating Systems

Microsoft Office has options that let you use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote from virtually anywhere. There are basic versions included with your free OneDrive cloud account or, if you are a more robust user, Office 365 might be a better option. Along with the base programs, Microsoft has an extensive collection of free templates that include health and fitness, or you can create your own from scratch.

Android Operating Systems

Google Docs includes word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, as well other collaborative tools. With Google Docs, you can create, view, edit and store in Google Drive, Google’s cloud storage service. Google Docs also has a large selection of templates if you need help getting started, or you can create your own customized products.

Apple iOS Operating Systems

For Apple users, there is iWork for iCloud, a web-based office suite that includes Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. All of these can be stored and accessed through iCloud. iWork comes with many templates and there are a number of community websites that offer an even greater selection.

If you’re not a big fan of apps, you can still track and manage all your health and wellness needs in this more traditional format. Regardless of how you chose to manage your information, the most important part is that you are actively moving towards a healthier you!
