A Few "Apps" to a Slimmer You

Okay, I don’t know anyone who can’t stand to lose a few pounds. Well, I do, but I hate those people so we won’t talk about them anyway! 🙂 If you’re like me, trying to balance your life with about a million things you need to do before midnight, trying to figure in when to work out is probably the last thing on your plate. br /br /After having Rylan, I looked back at some old photos of me, and I became determined to get back to some “resemblence” of what I used to look like. The problem is where to find the time to sneak that in. br /br /So I first joined a gym, that I love, but the times they have these great classes just doesn’t seem to work into my schedule. And I have a perfectly great treadmill in my basement, but the thought of staring at a wall for 40 minutes isn’t really appealing to me. So with all this technology at my finger tips, I decided to turn to my trusty a href=”http://www.apple.com/iphone/”iPhone/a for some help, and help I got! br /br /There are some great apps that can really keep you going, especially when you’re on the go. The 2 I have found to be helpful are a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ifitness/id290451423?mt=8″iFitness/a and a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lose-it/id297368629?mt=8″Lose It/a. br /br /First a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ifitness/id290451423?mt=8″iFitness/a br /br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://bellissimaphotography.com/uploaded_images/Picture-12-711766.png”img style=”cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 220px; height: 92px;” src=”http://bellissimaphotography.com/uploaded_images/Picture-12-711763.png” border=”0″ alt=”” //abr /is an app that gives you a bunch of different workouts to use, depending on what you’re trying to accomplish. An example, if you’re trying to tone your arms, there will be a bunch of different exercises focusing on triceps, biceps, etc. I get bored really easily, so having a variety at my fingertips works for me!br /br /Now with a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lose-it/id297368629?mt=8″Lose It/a, br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://bellissimaphotography.com/uploaded_images/Picture-11-752084.png”img style=”cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 217px; height: 86px;” src=”http://bellissimaphotography.com/uploaded_images/Picture-11-752082.png” border=”0″ alt=”” //abr /this handles the eating portion. I use to think, well, if I’m working out all the time, why can’t I eat what I want. This however, is not the right mindset. (Totally wish it was though, that would be awesome!) So I’ve had to pay more attention to what I put into my body for this to be more successful. This is sorta like Weight Watchers, but you’re counting calories instead of points. This was a huge eye opener for me. Like milk, you would think, well milk is good for you. But did you know that 1/2 cup has 45 calories? I was like WHAT! I probably drink two cups a day, which was turning out to be almost 200 calories. That’s a lot! More than anything, it taught me that even though fruit and veggies are good for you, there’s more calories associated with these than I thought. I was definitely more conscious of my portions as well. Do you even know what a 1/2 cup of cereal looks like? I’ll tell ya right now, not much! br /br /So a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ifitness/id290451423?mt=8″iFitness/a you can purchase for $1.99, where a href=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lose-it/id297368629?mt=8″Lose It/a is FREE. So back to my story about my weight, well, I was 12lbs heavier after having Rylan, and now only 8lbs. I know, not a huge success, but definitely a start! Let me know if this works for you!
