Back to Tracking
Tuesday, November 12, 2013
This morning I was making my lunch for work and decided enough was enough. I had to start tracking again. I use to do it in the morning while I was eating breakfast. But now I don't have time in the morning to go on the computer. I was reading something on my new phone (just got it on the weekend) and decided that was my answer! I'd just do it on my phone.
First, the SparkPeople website is terrible on a small smartphone screen. It was very hard to navigate. So I checked if there was a SparkPeople app, and lo and behold there is! Only...unlike the site, it's not free. Boo. I read through the reviews of the app and a lot of them weren't good. I don't have a problem paying for something that is going to help me achieve my goals, but I want don't want an app I'll fight with either!
A quick check on the Play Store showed many other free options that I could at least try out and see if I liked first. I downloaded the My Fitness Pal's app, and was soon entering my foods for the day like a pro.
I'm excited to say, I was within my calorie range by 8 calories today. I know, really close. BUT! I would have been way over without the app. I know it is true.
So, even though it's not in the Spark-Sphere, I have started tracking my calories again, and I think it was long over due. :)
