My Favorite Fitness/Health Apps #BalanceRewards #Shop | Optimistic Mommy

I have been in a struggle for about a year now.  With my health and how I look.  For me, those two things go hand in hand.  I know that after I gave birth to Riley, things weren’t going to be easy when it came to losing weight.  She’s almost 3 and a half, though, and I haven’t really done much to fix things.  It’s hard when you don’t have much motivation.  This past month or so I have been trying to do better.  There have been some apps that have helped, and I am excited to share them with you.  And the best part – they all tie in with Walgreens’ Balance Rewards program.

I am a frequent shopper of Walgreens.  I usually go there for any prescriptions we need, my beauty products, some food, and othe random items.  You more than likely know about the Walgreens Balance Rewards program – you get points for shopping there and you can get bonus points if you buy certain items that have those extra points tied to them.  Did you know that they have a program where you get points for making healthy choices?  And you get rewarded for those healthy choices, just like you do by shopping there!

By making healthy choices, you receive Balance Rewards points – You receive 20 points for every mile you walk, run or bike.  Also, if you track your weight you get 20 points.  Do you have to track your blood pressure or blood glucose numbers?  Receive 20 points daily for tracking those, as well!  You also get to celebrate your progress by collecting badges – so far I have 6 badges that I’m pretty proud of.  🙂

If you think that tracking your miles or steps each day is hard, it really isn’t.  Walgreens has made it easy for it’s customers!  They have a great list of apps and devices that you can use and connect to the program and they will sync together.  How great is that?  The three apps that I actually use, luckily, were three that are on the list.

  1. MyFitnessPal – Available for iOS and Android, MyFitnessPal allows you to track your exercise and food each day.  I love the calorie counter because it allows me to track food that I get from a restaurant or store, or I can create my own recipes and it automatically calculates the calories for the entire dish and allows you to create how much a serving is worth and will calculate the calories for that.  Tracking your food and exercise really could not get much easier with MyFitnessPal!  {Friend me on MyFitnesPal!}
  2. MapMyFitness – This is another great fitness tracking app that I like to use for tracking how long I’m on the stationary bike or how far of a walk or run I take at the park or around our subdivision.  {Friend me on MapMyFitness!}
  3. FitBit – I have a FitBit Flex that I absolutely LOVE for tracking my steps and how intense my workouts are, among many other things.  I wear it all the time (even to bed!) and I love how now my FitBit information gets synced to my Walgreens Balance Rewards app so I can get more rewards at Walgreens! {Friend me on FitBit!}
