MyFitnessPal App Review & How to Stick to New Year’s Resolutions

Disclosure: I’m a compensated member of U.S. Cellular’s Better Moments Blogger Brigade, but all opinions are my own. I’m pleased to share news and product information with you as part of my ongoing relationship with U.S. Cellular. 

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of the year? While I didn’t write out a list, I did think of some things I’d like to continue working on as well as some new personal goals. Most of my goals center around my family as well as health and fitness, like the fact that I’m currently training for my very first half marathon next month, so I suppose a fair resolution would be to be more focused and disciplined in order to achieve the goals I’ve set for myself. I love how technology, especially my U.S. Cellular Samsung Galaxy S4, makes it so easy and convenient to keep track of my goals. I especially love that mobile devices, like tablets and smart phonesmake it super simple to get organized with apps that download in seconds, but offer hours of help and support. Whether your goals are health-related or financially-focused, there is most likely an app to help keep you on track throughout the year, so there is literally no excuse to keep you from achieving your goals.

Here are some great examples of helpful apps you can download right now to get you started:

  1. I started off the year with the good intentions of limiting my attachment, no addiction to my smart phone and all things digital. Your list just caused my relaspe – kidding!
