A Free, Fun and Friendly Approach to weight loss

If you are like me, your are concerned with losing weight but dont want to always limit myself. I would much rather form a better eating lifestyle over going on skme diet. I am looking for life-long eating habits that with help me lose my extra poundage and continue to keep them off. I recentlly went to a Nutritionist to get in the correct path. She told me that in order to adequately make changes, I had to to evalute what I was currently doing and see where I can make improvements. Her #1 suggesrion as a tool to hell me was Myfitnesspal.

Myfitnesspal is a simple, fun, informative way to track your nutrition and activity efforts.  There are both website and mobile device platforms to make the program accessible to all. The program offers food and exercise journaling that will help you keep track of your efforts and evw give you tips to better reach your goals. Everything within the program is easy to use. The food journal even has a barcode scanner feature for easier food journal entry.

On my favorite features is the social connections you can make to your weight loss. You have the ability to share your progress with friends who are also using the program, if you want to. You also have the ability to use the program discretly and individually. I enjoy the connectivity of the program because I stay motivated from the encouragement I recieve from my friends abd family. Come connect with me so we can encourage each other. My username is krishtianxw.

Daily Yoga: Yoga On The Go

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

The other day I was speaking to a client about being in a consistent yoga practice.  She was sharing with me that recently she became unable to attend her usual yoga classes and was unhappy about the changes she saw in her body and mood since her last class.  I shared with her that while she was coming off of a regular yoga practice, that I was trying to get myself into one.  She asked me what how I was doing this while having an unpredictable schedule.  The best way I have found to do this is with the Daily Yoga app.

Daily Yoga: Yoga On The Go

Perfect app for this looking to get start a yoga practice or to get some practice in between classes.


Daily Yoga is an awesome mobile app that is available for phone and tablets, on  Android, Apple – and even Windows Phone operating systems.  It is great for those starting out in yoga or those who are more advanced. There a yoga programs for runner, for weight loss, for specific muscle groups, and even for all over stretching and relaxation.  The Sun Salutation is my favorite so far.  Each program has different levels set for you individual ability.   The programs have visual and audio instructions to help you through the poses.   There is also a pose library with further instructions and even a community section where you can share and receive tips and advice to further your practice.

Of course this app is no substitute the awesomeness of being in a class surrounded by student who are growing with you, but this app is great for those who may not be able to make it to a class.  The basics stage of the app is free.  Test is out and let me know how you like it.
