Helpful Tools

MY FAVORITE RESOURCES:

1.Spark People is an awesome way to log your workouts, food, and get connected with people just like you. It was an invaluable tool for me throughout my first year. I haven't stayed active on the site, but really enjoyed it when I was.

2. Q:How many calories are in a 54th Street Grilled Chicken Salad with no dressing?
   A: 500

You can find out information like this through My Fitness Pal. It has become my best friend when dining out.

3. Starting a running routine? I LOVE this app for my phone. It logs my runs and tracks my routes and even keeps me updated as I run regarding my speed and distance.

4. Another great app is the Tabata Timer.  I don't have a gym membership so often times I'm stuck doing workouts at home. Strength training can be difficult in that regard, but Kayla introduced me to Tabata training. It's a fast-paced, short style interval training that really gets the job done. You can read more about that here. It's not a style of workout that I would incorporate when you've just started a workout routine.

5. And of course Pinterest. It's great for recipes and finding new styles of workouts. But mostly I use the humor page to lift my spirits.
