This is a great app to log your food, track your activity, and also get motivation from others. MFP has the largest database of food in any app. Also you can scan barcodes on your packages to add it to your log.

Food Planner

Food Planner One of the best ways to make sure you and your family are eating healthy is by planning your meals. But it can be one of the hardest. Food Planner can really help you by letting plan your meals, download recipes from online, and make shopping lists.


Fooducate – Healthy Food Diet

Fooducate Healthy Food Diet If you are just starting out on your “healthy you journey” and would like to start learning more about the foods you are eating then this is the app for you. Learn about your favorite foods and what the healthier option may be. I love that they recently added a feature to help you watch out for extra sugar in your food.


Drinking Water

Drinking Water One of the quickest and easiest ways to start working on a getting healthy goal is start drinking your water! This is a very simple app that will help you remember to drink your 64 ounces water.



This app actually works in conjunction with the FitBit activity tracker. You can read my review of the FitBit One. This app is great for tracking activity, sleep, and food. But also it will sync with the MFP app also.

If you are looking into starting to run you may want to look into a Couch to 5K program. This is a full featured trial but you will have to buy the full program (about $2) after the second week.

RunKeeper – GPS Track Run Walk


I’m not a runner, but here is my friend who is: “I like RunKeeper because you can log you activity manually if you are working out in the gym instead of outside. Plus, it has TONS of workouts you can use some of which are training plans.” – Tina from Mad Hatter Mom

Daily Workouts was one of the first fitness apps that I downloaded. This is such a simple app, but effective. You get 5 different kinds of workouts (abs, cardio, etc) and then you choose how much time you have. This app has a video for each workout.
