Friday's Favorites...My Fitness Pal...

Published on 9.07.2012 in

Engineering Man and I are on Week 11 of P90X. 
I'm finally REALLY happy with how it's going. 
The first few weeks sucked.
And, we realized very quickly why. 
Basically, we were burning a ton of calories and were super hungry.
So, we'd eat WHATEVER!  And however much of that whatever.
Not exactly the ideal...and a major contributor to the fact that we weren't seeing results.
Then Engineering Man came home with this fablous app...
My Fitness Pal.    http://www.myfitnesspal.com/  (which is also a website)
This app (FREE!!) is amazing.  When you sign up, you input your stats and determine a goal (mine is to lose a pound a week).
Then, you're given a certain number of calories to use in a day.
And then, all you have to do is add in the stuff you eat and drink...
Here's a quick rundown of the screen shots to add something. 

Search something, find the one that matches what you're using, and then add it.  The calories are automatically deducted from your daily total.
Some highlights!!
* UPC scanner.  Don't want to search for something?  Scan it.  Automatically brings it up.
*The search has a TON of restaurants in it; like a whole lot.
* You can make your own recipes and the calories will be added up as you add ingredients.
*OH, and you can save the recipes to use later.  :)
*You can share your diary with your friends and copy meals (hello eating with your husband!).
*Not only that, but you can also put your weight in, and watch it go down.
*You can also add in your workout routine. Those calories burned get added back!
*AND...you can look back on your weekly and daily intake totals.
*Did I mention that it not only counts calories, but also the sugar, fat and other daily values?
Download it now.  It's AMAZING!!

My boys don't share, but if you want to...
