Shiny New Gadget of the Month:
Here we are in April…how have you done with your New Year’s commitment to “get in shape” or “eat better and exercise more?”
Well, if you have fallen off the wagon, I have some good news for you. And even if you have stuck with it, this little tip can make your efforts even easier.
MyFitnessPal.com provides a FREE online tool for tracking your diet, exercise activity and fitness goals. This site makes it easy to set your weight loss goals and overall nutrition plan. Each day you can log in to track food you eat for a breakdown of calories, fat, carbs and protein of each item. Any exercise activity can be logged and will subtract from your daily calorie bank.
There is also a social element to this site. Much like Facebook, you can ask to “friend” other members, post on a common wall and share encouraging words throughout your journey to good health.
MyFitnessPal.com is easy to use on your computer or via apps available for iPhones and other Smartphone devices.
As the saying goes, “That which is measured improves.” By simply tracking and measuring your food and exercise results on a daily basis, you become accountable for everything you eat and for every activity—or lack hereof. Seeing your progress in black and white will surely boost your results!
