I love fitness apps and I love free.
Below are 3 apps I love and highly recommend!
My Fitness Pal
This is my favorite weight-loss app. Tracking calories aren’t for everyone but it works really well for me. I have tried many diets (Weight Watchers and South Beach Diet to name a few) and calorie counting has always worked the best for me. I am not trying to be a body builder, I am just trying to be a healthy fit mom. My Fitness Pal gives me a suggested calorie count to reach my goals, and has a huge food database making it easy to list foods.
Nike Training+ Club
This is an awesome fitness app. It has tons of workouts you can do anywhere. You can find workouts based on level, time, and equipment needed. I workout at home a lot and this is a great option to get your heart pumping!
Map My Run
I don’t run too often anymore, but I always like tracking my runs when I did. I use to use the Nike running app, but that one always paused randomly during my run! Since switching to Map My Run, I haven’t run into this issue. I only use it to monitor time and distance, and it does the trick!
What are your favorite fitness apps?
If there are more errors than normal thats because my body is jello. Seriously. I am on day 3 of the Daily Burn’s Black Fire program and it is no joke. I am usually not a fan of workout videos but this is only about 30min per workout and is hard!!! Love it! Today started with Black Fire’s ABC 1 taught by Anja Garcia. I love her and Bob Harper! They are great trainers and really motivate you throughout the workout. The hardest move today was jumping back and forth over our mat while slapping the top of your knees…for 5 rounds. Holy crap.
After the workout Olivia, Lola and I picked up some necessities (Diet Coke & Starbucks) and returned home.
After my venti skinny decaf mocha and diet coke, I made an egg white scramble with 3/4c egg whites, 1/4c Trader Joes lite mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 of an avocado with a 100 calorie pack of Coca Roasted almonds –my favorite!
Then I went to Starbucks again (addict) and got a reduced fat turkey bacon sandwich.
Olivia has been a little crabby today, so it was easiest for me to go through the drive-thru while she napped. Then I consoled her when she woke up extremely upset.
Luckily it was short lived and she’s back to normal!
Hope you all have a great night! See ya tomorrow =)
Hey everyone!! Happy Friday! I hope you have some exciting plans on your agenda! We don’t have too many plans, just dinner out tonight and tomorrow, and a few sweaty workouts! Speaking of sweating, this morning I completed Daily Burn’s Tabata POC. It was a good one. After my workout, Olivia and I headed to the pool for week 2 of her swimming lessons. It is so much fun. Next week Patrick is going with me so we can get some water pictures and video. I can’t wait!!
Tomorrow instead of doing Body Pump (Patrick has a dentist appointment and I am not quite ready to put her in the gym’s daycare yet) I am going to complete this HIIT and this upper body workout. Its challenging and quick! You’ll need a pair of dumbbells to complete this workout.
Do each circuit of 3 exercises (12-15 reps) 2 times. Each exercise is linked to show you how to complete the workout. This workout takes about 15min to complete. Limit rest between exercises.
