Tracking your activities, workouts, and eating is the only way you can measure your progress towards your established fitness goals.  This information lets you determine what's working and what's not working. Importantly, it provides you with the information to make the neccessary adjustments to stay on track. It's almost like when you are using your GPS, take a wrong turn, and you hear the message "recalculating."

In today's fast paced world of technology, there are countless fitness apps that allow you to easily track your progress. There are some that track workouts, some that track running and walking, some that help you track your eating habits, and some that provide nutritional facts.  I don't know about you, but I find having to use that many apps very cumbersome and time consuming.

To keep it simple, I would like to tell you about the one app I personally use.  I think you will find it to be a real benefit to track your efforts. While this app is basically designed to help you eat healthier, it does that and more:

Health Tracker: This is where you track your workouts, meals/snacks, and water consumption and it compares your calorie intake to what is suggested for you.  It also provides a breakdown of percentage of carbohydrates, protein, and fat as well as the level of processed foods.

Food Finder: This allows you to scan products while you are shopping to determine the nutritional value of the product.  It actually gives it a grade based on nutritional value and level of processing.  It's easy to use, quick, and encourages feedback if you scan an item that is not in their data base.

Community:  This allows you to interact with others in the Fooducate community to exchange ideas, recipes, successes, etc. with the ability to upload and download photos.

Recipes: A wide range of healthy recipes that are updated daily.

Diet Tidbits: Great facts on everyday foods and separating fact from fiction in the diet/nutrition world.

This app also interacts with many of the fitness trackers on the market today.  I use the Apple watch
and it applies all my workout data to the health tracker.

I'm sure everyone has their favorite apps and preferences, I just think this app captures the information I need to stay on track, and keeps it simple.  Take a closer look by clicking here.

Until next time, enjoy your workouts.
