So it is February which means our New Years Resolutions are probably long forgotten. I get it, it is HARD to stick to a fitness or health goal once you get into the swing of your usual routine. GUILTY! But I have found a few fitness apps (of course they're apps, we are millennials) that have helped me get in the groove that I want to share with my babes!
One of my girlfriends shared this with me when I expressed to her that I wanted to get in tip-top shape for my wedding. It is called BodySpace. It has customized workouts that you can do from home. You can even select how many days a week you would like to exercise and it will present workouts that fit those goals. You can track your amount of weight lifted and your personal records. The levels range from beginner to expert so there really is a workout for everyone.
Sweat: Kayla Itsines Fitness
This app has workouts that can be done from anywhere at anytime. Interactive videos help make sure that you understand each move. I promise you will SWEAT. You can try a free trial for 7 days to see if you like it. If you do, it's only $9.99 a month for a yearly membership. This app would be great for girls who want to get whipped into shape but don't like the intimidation of going to the gym and not being sure what to do. Work hard from home with Sweat!
Mealime is an app that I just started using this week. You can select the type of diet you want, how many servings per meal you prefer, your likes and dislikes and even allergies and then it will give you meal options. It takes it a step further by creating a grocery list for you. HOW CONVENIENT. Does anyone else usually just wander around the grocery store wondering what to buy? This is a winner in my book. This is what I'll be cooking next week from the app:
This calculator is a great way to get started with your fitness goals. It will use your height, weight, age and measurements to calculate your ideal body weight, how many calories you should intake a day to maintain your weight and how many you should eat if you'd like to gain or lose weight. I am definitely not an expert in this area and I'm sure the numbers aren't exact but it is still a cool way to see the average weights and fit weights for your age and height. It puts into perspective where you stand and gives you a base for your goals.
I hope that these easy-to-use apps will help you continue your fitness goals past the new year. Remember, health isn't based off of how you look, but how you feel! Best of luck! We are in this thing together, girl!
