- Get Fit
- Reduce Debt
Just before the Christmas break, my boss's wife told me about this handy food and exercise tracking app that she'd been using. I wouldn't say she's particularly in the need of a diet, but she said she was before she took control and made some changes (seriously, if I could look like her at her age (which really isn't very old!) I'd be happy!!). So I started using the MyFitnessPal app (which also has a website!).
Turns out the app is really user friendly and more than a little addictive (for a control freak like me!). All you need to do is put in your age, gender, weight, height and goal weight and it will calculate for you a recommended daily (weekly and monthly) calorie intake as well as desired exercise time. I haven't been using the app to it's fullest extent (you can enter your weight daily to monitor your weight loss... or gain... as well as your measurements) but I intend to!
Enter Exhibit A:
|Not EXACTLY what mine looks like... but close enough!|
It's not that we don't already own a scale here, there is one in the bathroom... but I'm pretty sure it's older than me. Now I own my own scale! (I don't think I've ever done that before!)
On top of recording what I eat, I also have one of these bad boys...
|Nor this exact one... but it is a Nordic Track and it looks really similar!|
There you have it! Now you know the story behind my fitness app and now I can tell you that I hope to share this with you every Friday! I hope I can let you know where I'm at with my endurance on the elliptical (time and kilometer-wise) and hopefully when I'll be posting pictures of me in an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie-yellow-polka-dot-bikini!!
Stay tuned for more Friday Updates!
