Fun Apps for Fit Girls

I have to admit that I'm a bit of a nerd.  I love gadgets and technology in a way that's almost embarrassing.

So I can't imagine why I took this long to get acquainted with the fit-girl apps available on my iPhone!

Let me tell you about the ones I'm loving this week.

1. MyFitnessPal

Yes, I know I'm late getting to this one.  This calorie & nutrition tracker is powerful!  I like that I can scan barcodes of zillions of food and get accurate nutrition information right away.

I have synced MyFitnessPal with these other apps to get an accurate picture of my nutrition and exercise and how they are related.

Best part? It's FREE!

2. Strava

Here's another FREE app that uses the GPS on my iPhone to track my runs.  You can also join groups and get & give Kudos to other runners.  (You can also use it for cycling but I've never done that)

3. Fitbit

The Fitbitt App is FREE,  but you need to invest in a Fitbit to use it.  I just got a Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker.  It's the most basic Fitbit.  The other ones track other information like your sleep cycles, but I went basic. (for now)

4.  EveryMove

Is a relatively new app that allows you to earn points that earn you rewards for being active.  Right now I'm working toward a discount on SportSuds which we really need.  This family makes a lot of laundry.

5.  Gymboss

As a run/walker I've been a fan of my Gymboss timer for awhile.  They also have a FREE app now!  I use it to time my run/walk intervals.  You can set & save different intervals and name them. You could also use it for other kinds of interval & HITT workouts.

Do you use your smart phone to motivate you 
on your fitness journey?
