Apps and goals

I hope everyone had a happy holiday and did lots of fun things with friends and family! My holiday weekend was jam-packed, and I’m starting to think forward to 2012 and all the things I want to achieve once it arrives.

The cold I had over Christmas is FINALLY starting to go away. It took its sweet time and even today my throat is a little scratchy, and I don’t have much energy. However, I have been getting gradually better over the past few days, and I’m going to be ready to throw myself into my new fitness plan once Monday hits.

I downloaded a few apps onto my iPod the other day to help me track my progress and so far, I really love them. If you too are like me and want to track everything possible in your life, maybe you’ll enjoy them as well!

1. The first app I downloaded was Way of Life, and this is my favorite of the lot. You can define as many daily habits as you want to track, for example some of mine are:

– Drinking Alcohol
– Exercising
– Taking vitamins
– Flossing
– Drinking Soda

They can be positive or negative habits and you specify what each one is, and then you begin tracking everyday whether you did or didn’t do something. If you did something good, you’ll get a green dot, and if you didn’t do it, it’ll be red. This is really going to help me see how well or not well I’m doing on things that need my attention every day.

2. Another is the type of app I’ve been trying to find for a while: Pepperplate. This allows you to enter in all your recipes and plan meals for each week. One big problem I have is getting home from work after a long, tiring day and not knowing what to do for dinner, and then succumbing to takeout. Having a meal plan will certainly help, and so will having a list readily available of all the things I know how to make.

3. The third app is nothing new to the vast majority of you, but I’ve never looked into it before because I’m just not a big reader. It’s Goodreads, and since one of my new year’s resolutions is to read more books, this will help me keep track of my progress.

I just love a good app that helps me organize my life!

If I don’t post again before tomorrow, I hope you all have a great weekend and new year and that you’re dreaming big for 2010!

    Great suggestions for apps. I’m hoping to be out of the dinosaur age in a few days when I get my smartphone LOL.
