Last week I shared my BMI and primary fitness goal...to be healthier! Weight loss is important, especiallywhen you are looking at the need to lose 60 - 100 pounds.
My first mini-goal is to fit comfortably into a size 14 pants and dress with the ultimate goal of a size 12/14. Once the size 12 is comfortable then I'll re-evaluate if I continue toning and losing to fit into a size 10/12.
For now, let me share the apps I'm using to achieve my current goal:
1) Fitbit App: click here to learn more
My favorite aspect of this app is the ever changing emoticon changes. My least (and favorite one) is when it sticks its tongue out at me because I haven't moved enough. I get up and move, sometimes using the restroom as an excuse if I'm in a meeting. Another goody is being able to view my "active" minutes. I lack in "active" minutes throuhout the day. I might acheive 10,000 steps but my activity is still in need of improvement. Another thing I like is when I check the app and the circles go around and make confetti to celebrate when I achieve a goal.
2) My Fitness Pal App: Click here to learn more
This app allows me to document my calorie intake, exercise, and daily water. It also tracks how many days in a row I log in and exercise. I can even set reminders if I fail to log in.
3) Map My Walk App: Click here to learn more
This app logs my walking routes and workouts. I set mine so the routes are private, for security reasons but if you want to share your route with friends, you can. In addition to Map My Walk, there are similar apps to track your run or bicycle ride.
These apps are all free and do have the option to upgrade to monitor more information but the information I gain through the FREE versions is enough for me.
