The Fly Lady's Guide to Health & Fitness

I'm sure that we all understand the importance of daily fitness and good nutrition. Living a healthy lifestyle positively affects your body, mood and mind. But, we also know the amount of time that takes!!! With your On The Fly lifestyle, you probably don't have to time for personal training or meal preparing! I have the same problem, which I why I've compiled the Fly Lady's Guide to Health & Fitness. With these tips, apps, challenges, you can live a healthy lifestyle even with an On The Fly life.

One of the best and easiest things you can do to improve your health and boost your weight loss is to drink LOTS of water! But, personally, unless I focus on doing this, I fail. I'll either forget to drink anything, or I'll reach for a soda instead. I'm happy to say that I've finally found something that helps: The Water Lite app! Using your weight, the free app will tell you have much water to drink a day all remind you throughout the day! Just tap the table to add a glass of water; after a week you can even view your water intake graph and get a grade on your performance. It's easy and will keep you reminded to drink up on a daily basis!

Looking to burn a few extra calories throughout the day... WITHOUT EVEN TRYING?! Who isn't? Well, check out what I found in an issue of All You magazine. These tricks are perfect for all ages and lifestyles! I say, let's make the most of our shopping trips and television shows!! 

Tracking calories is a pain! I mean, I don't have the time to check calories, write down what I'm eating and track it long-term. So, thank goodness I have the My Fitness Pal app. This free app is a diary for you to log your food and workouts. Search the calories of foods or, my favorite part, use the barcode scanner! Scan the product and My Fitness Pal will add the calories for you! This is so easy and smart. It's truly a food diary, right at your fingertips!

It's August 1st, but don't worry ladies, it's never too late to get that bikini body! (Hey, there are indoor pools for a reason, right?!) So take the On The Fly fitness challenge with me throughout the month of August! Over the 30 period, we'll focus on squats, push-ups and planks. Trust me, I did the squat one before and after a week, I starting seeing results! They're exercises that you can do while watching television or, break them up throughout the day! All you have to do is commit. So Fly Ladies, you in?!


So, what do you think?! Any tricks or apps that I missed? Keep me updated on how your On The Fly fitness challenge goes! YOU GO, FLY LADIES!
