If getting fit and healthy isn’t incentive enough, here’s another way to reward your new regime.

Put a pound in a jar Everytime you work out, then treat yourself to a massage, new workout kit or something to remind yourself that you’ve earned your treat.


No time to workout? Rubbish!

A familiar excuse among people who like to think they’re busier than the rest of us.

The truth is, if it’s important to you you will find a way. If it’s not, you’ll just find an excuse.

Being healthy and active needs to be part of your everyday life, and it can be fun too.

We were changing the water bottle over in the office and my colleague Ian decided to try a mini circuit with an 18kg bottle! We captured his efforts on Twitter’s latest video app, Vine.

Unfortunately Vine is so new I can’t upload it here, but check out my personal vine – Sophie OMahony – to see them




The best health tracker app around

January 12, 2013 2 comments

OK! We’re all on it, the January health kick.

Watching calories and fat content, working out more and promising ourselves this year, it’ll be different, this time you’ll stick with it, this year you’ll get that six pack.

So, if you are serious about it this time, get serious and download this app from the App store, MyNetDiary

It’s completely free, and no I’m not on commission. I use it.

It’s a great of keeping a food diary and it’s database has pretty much every brand and food you can imagine. All with protein / carb / fat content and all the other nutrients too.

It tells you what your daily allowance is given your weight loss goals.

It calculates how many calories you’ve burnt in exercise, which means you have more to consume that day

It analyses your diet to tell you how to improve – too little, too much, too much cholesterol, too little fibre or iron

It tracks your weight loss

It does pretty much everything for you, apart from lose the weight.

Check it out, download it, use it, and watch yourself get healthy.

Then come back and thank me for introducing it to your life!

It’s also online here, but I find the app FAR more useful
