I snapped this picture when I was on a walk earlier this week. Isn’t it serene. It speaks a little bit of peace right to my heart. I’ve been on a walking rampage lately in an effort to healthify my hefty being. Something must be done, truly. I have been walking and walking and walking all over the place.
…and taking a lot of pictures along the way. There’s something about being out in the open and drinking in the gorgeous scenery.
It can really clear a person’s mind.
I wanted to tell you about a great walking app I found recently that is AH-mazing. This is not a sponsored post and there are no affiliate links. Just sharing something cool I have found recently for any of you who may head out on a stroll now and then.
It’s called Map My Walk and it seriously tracks you through a GPS system while you trail around. It logs your distance, pace, calorie burn and time spent. It shows you a little map so you can see where you’ve been and where you might want to go. There’s a nice little voice that chimes in when you have logged a mile, reporting your progress. It even shows your elevation. Technology is incredible, yes? I am in love with this little app, seriously. It’s totally free. There is a Map My Run, for you overachieving runners out there, as well as a Map My Ride that will track cycling. All of the apps will sync with My Fitness Pal…
…which is another app I have been enjoying as of late. Totally free. Totally awesome, if you are into tracking your calories. Which in truth really isn’t that much fun (all in all, I’d rather eat my weight in Homemade Caramels, which is a lot more enjoyable but is apparently bad for your health. What a shame). This app makes counting calories pretty darn easy. It has a huge database where you can search for just about any food and pull up the calorie count. It also has a built in scanner you can use to scan the barcode of anything under the sun and find out the calorie content. It has a TON of features that are super handy.
That’s my report for the week, gang. More recipes coming soon. Thanks for dropping by!
