I am a total geek-chick and can’t even remember life before my iPhone. How did I ever get around without GPS or survive long lines at the bank without Words with Friends?
There are SO MANY cool apps out there that can help you reach your fitness goals. Here are two of my current favorites:
Diet Snaps is a super cool food journal app that I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Basically instead of writing down what you eat, you simply take a photo of it. It tracks your photos for the day, so you have a visual reminder of what you ate. You can export your daily or weekly logs to people in an excel format (send it to your trainers at Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp and we can give you nutritional consult). You can also email your meal shots or post them. I think what I love about it is that it resonates with the foodie in me! You take that extra time to make your food look pretty and take a moment before you eat…it slows you down and helps you to be more conscious of what you are eating. If you are food logging and find it hard to write down everything during the day, use this app in conjunction with your food journal as a reminder tool.
My Fitness Pal is the best online/phone app food journal that I have found. The phone app is super easy to use and they have the most extensive database of foods I have found. This is super important living in Hawaii where we eat such a variety of ethnic foods. They have things like agedashi tofu, sake, and kim chee! They also have a great online community, much like Facebook. Check it out!
And Honorable Mention Goes to…
Gold’s Gym Spotter is a cool app that Bootcamper Josh told me about. What’s cool about it is that you can “flip book” yourself by taking pictures of your body along your journey…a pretty neat way to see your own transformation. Of course, this works best if you have a spouse or friend who doesn’t mind taking a photo of you every week.
