Prepare to ‘Bare’: Keeping Track of Food Intake and Exercise

Prepare to ‘Bare’: Keeping Track of Food Intake and Exercise

Yoga-imagesDear DTB Challengers,

It’s Thursday and we’re just a few days away from our Project Blissful & MTM Body Dare to Bare Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge! As we move closer to the big starting day (Tuesday, Sept. 3–the day after Labor Day), we’re preparing for the challenge mentally and physically.

So far, we’ve covered planning for what to eat and planning for our workouts. Today, we’re talking about how we’re going to track  our food intake and exercise.

Learn more and sign up for the challenge, right here.

Ask Yourself: How are you going to keep track of your food intake and exercise?

Decide in advance how you’ll track your food and exercise. I like to use a smartphone app called Noom Weight Loss Coach. It offers me the ability to track my food and workouts, plus I have Noom Walk, which automatically tracks my steps every day and gives me goals to increase my fitness based on my weight and diet and previous activity levels. Noom gives me daily tasks to complete and is just generally a really easy-to-use and effective tool.

I have also tried and liked MyFitnessPal and the official Weight Watchers app, as well as a couple of motivational apps that just offered little tips and pokes throughout the day. I ended up removing all but Noom and Noom Walk from my phone when I recently had to free up some space.

If you have a fitness and weight loss app you prefer, please tell me about it in the comments section below—I’m always interested in finding great tools!
