A couple of months ago, I was asked a couple questions about my fitness routine and what I would look for in an app to track progress with trying to lose weight, exercising and eating habits. Now, I was just notified that the app is finally out from Slimkicker.
I just downloaded the app and have been using it since the beginning of the month. It's quite useful and a great way to keep track of what I do and eat, and also my weight. I can log in when I walk to and from work, shred with Jillian Michaels, dance around with Tracy Anderson or Pilates with Mari Winsor to what I eat and see my progress with losing this stubborn 10 pounds.
What I really like about this app is the Challenges feature. You can sign up for one of their recommended challenges, most are for seven days, and then check in each day. Some challenges are to have no snacks after dinner, replace soda, tea and coffee with water, do 10 wall squats a day, etc. Currently I am doing Move during Commercials - I have to get off the couch and march in place or dance during commercials for the next seven days.
Each time you complete a challenge or exercise (and maybe even with what you eat), you get points to use towards a reward. This points system is something I still have to look into but even if I don't care for the points and rewards, this app is still a great tool to track my progress. I highly recommend that you download this FREE app if you have an iPhone and if you have an Android, an app should be coming out shortly for you. If you sign up and download the app, don't forget to add me as a friend.
