myfitnesspal

I have so much to blog, like, ya know, all of Feberuary, March, and April!!! I've been so busy with work, getting into shape, and trying to be better for my family, that my blog has taken back seat. It's getting warm here in Arizona so work will slow down (which is bittersweet). I'm planning to catch up on blog post this weekend! I know, pins & needles (wink)! But, I thought I'd take a breather and share one of my newest addictions...because I really needed another one!!!

Actually, it's not new. It's something I've used for a while. I just fall more and more in love with it everyday. myfitnesspal.com, is an app (I know it's on iphone and droid) and website. I've tried a few different methods, but this has been the best one for me, so I like to shout it from the rooftops! I keep track of my calories, both consumed and burned. It's so stinking easy; what are you waiting for?!?! Here are few of my favorite features:
  • It's super easy.
  • It's food database is huge! Plus, you can scan the barcodes on your food packages and it will bring the info up for you (so fun)!
  • If you enter your info (age, starting weight, goal weight, etc.), it will tell you how many calories you need to consume to get there.
  • Then it helps you keep track.
  • You can add/encourage/motivate your friends!
  • You can set reminders (one of my favorite features).
  • Seeing my progress has been really rewarding!
