If you listened to my podcast #2, you know my story
I struggled with my weight for 30 of my 40 years on this earth.
The last 10 years, I half committed to diets and was never fully invested
I found once I really began my lifestyle change all the things I had been missing out on that had completely changed in the
last 10 years. And I would like to share these things with you
Technology can be confusing and frustrating. Or it can be amazing and eye opening
it’s whatever you decide to focus on.
I still cant figure out my Roku or blue Ray player… but I have found the following top 20
things to be incredibly helpful and game changing in my weight loss journey

I can only fit 10 at a time on the podcast so you get 2 incredibly amazing podcasts out of my technology tips and tricks for weight loss
and this is part 1 of 2

top 10 of 20 ways technology has made dieting and healthy living easier

20 2nd hand shopping websites:
things like:
let go
Craig’s list
Facebook market
offer up
even amazon
for things like gym equipment that you can buy and make yourself a home gym on a budget
it’s like having your very own modern day garage sale priced options right at your fingertips
you can even set up a notification on most sites to let you know if a certain “keyword”
becomes available within a your determined mile radius in your set price range.

We have bought other gym equipment this was as well.
I love a good deal, and 2nd hand gym equipment is hardly ever used.
if a home gym is an option you are considering and you need equipment- this is a great option

19 Netflix/ Amazon Prime/ HULU
use as a motivator like I do to walk.
either at home or at the gym- bring your pad or phone and connect to WIFI and your Netflix or amazon Prime app
and away you go
find a show you can’t wait to watch the next episode- like the killing, scandal, anything binge-worthy
you will find yourself popping up on the treadmill or stationary bike more often than your scheduled workout times just to watch another episode or 10 more minutes
binge-worthy doesn’t have to mean you are a slave to your couch

calorie counting has never been so easy
already implemented in the site is almost all brand names, fast food items, you name it
there’s even a bar code scanner
recipe input- manual or online
if you find a recipe on a website, you can go to myfitnesspal and give the recipe name and website and it
will download it for you, and verify the ingrediants & servings
so if you copycat the recipe and swap out something to make it healthier- you can adjust it here as well
if you food prepped for a few days or so, there is an option per meal you can fill in other days with the same meal
you can save meals per whatever you would like to call it such as “Kary’s kick A Gazpacho”
There is a blog that gives you meal prep ideas, fitness articles, recipes, and other worth while reads

fast food and chain restaurants already input- you can look ahead and create your meal plan for a future trip
you can use the free version or buy a year membership with extras like macro nutrient information, personalised meal
times, etc for $49 per year- which I do chose to utilize
you can save your weight daily and look back on progress, and even add progress photos
You can attach your step tracker to the site and gain “activity calories”
you can get a daily assessment for “if everyday was like today, in 5 weeks you will weight…”- although I have a better
app for that I will discuss coming up

17 podcasts- advice for free
such as this one
more favorites: loosing 100 pounds with Phit n phat- love her! Feel like could be best friends
The life coach school with Brooke Castillo- mind blowing mental game
like Tony Robbins- feel in complete control of your thoughts by listening to her
Dirty John- story and entertainment only
which brings me to audio books
I will sometimes purchase them, also can borrow them through my library card.
set it all up through overdrive app- need your library card # and pin to set up
can normally borrow about 21 days
podcasts or audio books you can download onto your phone when your on WIFI, then listen to them
during a walk with your dog or while driving or working out.

13 Pinterest

12 workout apps
push ups, sit ups, lunges, squats, pull ups, yoga, running, biking, walking
some of my fav-
if you want to run: 5k runner. You can open this app and have in the background running when on Netflix
or amazon and it will ding and tell you to run or walk and have a notification at the top of your screen
if you use your phone or tablet to watch shows during your treadmill like I do
Pocket Yoga- great beginner yoga lesson right on your phone
JEFIT design own workout based on your own body weight like push ups, sit ups, etc without needing gym equip
besides dumbbells

Footpath- if you walk in your neighborhood or outside-
you can plan your walk or bike ride, by tracing your finger on a google earth type view of an area
which you can use your current area or type in an address and find out your mileage. You can save these
planned walks or rides under whatever name you assign it
wonderful for exploring your town
free and paid apps for yoga, Pilates, workout ball, kettle bells,
push ups, sit ups, lunges, squats, pull ups, planks
usually month long challenge that steps up the intensity and reps every check in, which is normally
3 days a week preferred
sworkit- 5 minute workout
