I haven’t worked hard at losing weight since about 2003, when I was doing a weight loss program that handed out little booklets that you carried everywhere to track your food and exercise. Now, of course, no one needs one of those little booklets – you can use apps on your smart phone.
Starting in November I decided to get serious about losing weight and getting back in shape. It’s been going well; I feel great and have even gotten back into hiking a couple of times a week, which is one of my very favorite things to do. I’ve been using some amazing apps to both keep myself accountable and to track changes to my food and body as I go. But I’m always on the lookout for new ones, particularly great ones for hiking, and I thought I’d share my research with you. Here are the very best seven apps I’ve found for fitness, ranging from practical to hilariously helpful. Hope these help you too!
