Fitness Apps For Your Phone

What is the one thing you probably use more than any other thing in your day?  Your phone?  In most peoples' cases, that would definitely be it.  Did you also know your phone can work as a great tool and supplement to your diet and fitness regime and help you meet your goals?  I never realized this until I was tracking water my water the other day (that app is below.)  

Daily Water

I am a big believer in drinking enough water to help you stay healthy, help digestion, and flush things out of your body.  I am super OCD, so for me tracking my water intake is a great way to help me constantly try to drink more.  It is also very eye opening when you first start tracking your water intake, to see how much you actually are drinking in a day.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .




This is an app that is now on all iPhones.  Basically, you can carry your phone on you all day and it will track your activity and steps.  You can add personal medical information in it for emergencies, as well.  If you have your phone on your person a lot it is great (men, in pockets.) I use it for runs or hikes, or any big days when I am wearing a bag on me all day.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 



MFP is the diet app I use the most, hands down.  Tracking your food intake is unbelievably helpful to see how much you are really eating in a day.  I try to track most days.  Some days I get frustrated, but generally, I try to do it as often as possible.  If you track your micros, you can also do that on here (I don't, too lazy.)  I always need to decrease my carbs and increase my protein, and this is a great way to see how much of each I am consuming.  My absolute favorite part of this app is the recipe builder.  I cook a lot and it is a pain in the butt manually counting the calories in a recipe, but once you add them in the recipe builder here you can save them and they are always in there!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



Please ignore my horrific time above.  I definitely use this the most for tracking my distance, pace and time when I run or walk.  It notifies you at each mile, and you can see your pace live (a great motivator to move faster!)  You can sync your music to it and save your workouts for different things, such as running the same route to compare your time.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I have a major love/hate relationship with my Fitbits.  They have broken, and I have gone through three in the last couple of years.  Sometimes I have to take them off when I realize I am walking in circles around our living room trying to get steps... while sipping on wine.  I think we all know that's not going to achieve goals.  I do, however, love the app.  It is great for tracking food, workouts, and water, all in one place.  I have tried a few different trackers, and always come back to this one, mainly because of the app.  It is simple to use, easy to read and understand, and motivating.

I currently use all of these apps on a very regular basis.  I'm trying out Tabata Pro and the 7 Minute Workout apps for at home workouts.  I have only used each once, but once I try them more I'll let you guys know what I think!

Have a happy, healthy day babes!

  4. I love Map My Run and use it almost every single day when I go out with Brady! Definitely want to download the water one - I feel like I chug water all day so it'd be interesting to see how much I really am drinking!

  6. Oh man, how did I not know about that water app? Downloading immediately! I never use the Health app on the phone because I usually don't have my phone "on" me but maybe I will in Charleston! And I love Map My Run! So great!

  11. Great suggestions! Do you like the Fitbit better than the misfit? I think I remember reading you had that.

    1. I do like the FitBit better. I actually prefer the Misfit as a wearable, but the FitBit app is just so much better.

    4. Thanks for the reply! I have a Misfit but I'm intrigued by the Charge HR. I like the idea of something monitoring my heart rate at the same time. Have a great weekend! -Kara
