I don’t know what this page is for but for now I’m going to use it to mark my current best times so I can beat them silly and feel accomplished for doing so.

A couple helpful little goodies I love using…

MyFitnessPal is an awesome way to get you started on your own little quest for nutritional self awareness. You can set your goals to your liking, adjusting your ratios of carbs/fats/proteins to meet your own personal goals, as well as calculate the nutrition facts of recipes, track calories, and keep a journal of workouts. It’s cray fun. Just don’t get obsessed. Unless you want to. Then by all means, obsess away.

Nike Training Club

This…makes me hurt. It’s ridiculously easy to follow with very clear pictures and videos, plus…it hurts. Like a lot? The “Focused” exercises make me feel less silly than the full ones. (The full ones have a lot of…sidestepping around the gym? I don’t know guys. I don’t know about that.) And it’s free!!!! Also the blonde fitness model in it has abs that scare/intimidate/inspire me. But mostly scare me. I did my last workout in a sports bra to see if my abs do what hers do when I do the things she does. They don’t. But they want to. Really badly.

Run Keeper keps the shit out of your runs.
Man, who knew running was so fun? Especially outdoors? Apparently everyone knew this. Except me. But hey, it’s never too late to jump on the running bandwagon, jump off it, attach the bandwagon to a rope and pull it behind you while you run a la strongest man competition event.

  1. Would love to see where you’re calculating your nutrition information from- if it’s my fitness pal, would love to see your recipes in the database!

    1. You guessed right! Myfitnesspal + a food scale. And thanks! 🙂

  2. Also try RunKeeper; this track your progress, interacts to social interfaces (Facebook, Twitter), and will let you know when you surpass previous goals on endurance, distance, etc. It tracks running, walking, biking… It’s pretty snazzy.

    1. I actually did graduate to RunKeeper recently. Love it!

  3. I loveeee Nike training club! This thing is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. (read amazingly painful)! And about wearing a sport bra to see if my abs are showing (they are not, not yet)… I DO THAT TOO! ahaha but Shhh, don’t tell anyone…
