5 Apps to Get Back on Track

Written by April Ewaski. Posted in Blog, Health

You’ve already called it quits with your New Year’s resolution, haven’t you?  What was it again?  Lose weight, stop smoking, get active?   Or did you forget you made one?  Well why wait until next year to try again when you can get back on track today? 

Here are 5 apps that can help you get back on track. 

  1. NCI QuitPal     This free app is designed to help you quit smoking. Once you set your quit date, you can track your daily progress.  The app includes tips, health facts and support hotlines. It even tracks how much money you are saving.
  2. MyFitnessPal     With this free app you are able to monitor your calorie intake, set goals and track your weight.  Simply input your current weight, goal weight, and age to calculate what your daily calorie intake should be.  You can even connect with other MyFitnessPal app-users for peer encouragement.
  3. Couch to 5k    Have you ever wanted to run a 5k?  This app is designed to help new runners avoid injury by doing too much, too soon. It starts with alternating walking with jogging until your endurance can handle jogging for a sustained period of time.  If you are looking to find 5ks in your area, this app can do that too.
  4. Fooducate     While you are browsing the shelves in the grocery store you can scan items using the camera on your smart phone to find healthier food options. Each product is automatically graded (A-, B+, C, etc…) by an algorithm based on its nutrition facts and ingredient list. For example, my Trader Joe’s Spring Onion Rice Noodle Bowl just received a C- because it contains too much salt.  The app recommends 10 healthier alternatives.
  5. Nike Training Club     With over 85 different workouts, the Nike Training Club app motivates you to get maximum results.  You choose the level of difficulty for each workout along with getting lean, toned, strong or focused.  You can set your music in the app and the trainer voiceover will automatically adjust the volume to provide your instruction.  Then back to your music.  There are also video workouts to pause at your convenience.

Many people make health related resolutions but most fail within just a month or two, only to make the same resolution again next year.  So why not do things different this year?  Taking steps to improve your health now is not only good for your heart and soul, but it can reduce your medical costs.  

So resolve to start using apps like these and you’ll be able to choose a different resolution next year.
