I am about half way through week TWO of my fifth and final year of college!!! So exciting, sad but exciting!! I think I am about ready to move on into the real world! ( AHHH–did I just say that :x)
My last post was about my favorite apps that I use ALL THE TIME!! This one is just to follow up on that! For my last post, I wasn’t using my TIME MANAGEMENT skills, and ended up running out of time before I could finish!!
Charity Miles is such a GREAT app! A few people have asked me if it is a scam or not, but I really don’t think it is. It is a free app and you get to pick a charity they have listed for you to donate to. You then choose if you are running, walking, or biking. You begin and it keep track of your distance and time. When you are finished it lets you know how many minutes of research you earned, or how many meals will be donated to a mother, child, or soldier in need. The charity you choose is totally up to you!! Even if I know I am just going on a 5-10 minute walk, I alway use this! I think it is a great ay to give back, I am going something good for my body by working out, plus it makes me feel great inside to know that I can help someone else while even doing something for myself.
This one is a new one I have found. I am not going to lie to you, I kind of have no idea how to use it. I know that it gives you challenges and you can get badges and stuff, like points. But The overall app still confuses me. It looks super cool, and the challenges are pretty awesome. There is definitely an activity in there for EVERYONE! I saw a few for swimming, hiking, running, lifting.. the list goes on and on! I know that you can base it off of beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, beyond that, I am a little clueless. SORRY EVERYONE! I know this is supposed to be me telling you about the apps. I just know that this is a cool one, and one of these days I will get it all figured out! haha
This is by far one of the BEST apps I have ever found!! All you basically need is a barcode to scan and an internet/ wifi connection. You scan a food that you want to know the nutritional information on. This is perfect for people that don’t understand nutritional labels, or don’t look in too much detail in the list of ingredients. When you scan an item it grades it on a scale from A to D-. I honestly don’t even know if there is anything below a D-, I am too scared to scan anything and see something with a nutritional value that low! haha Either way, it is a very simple scale that we can all relate too, which is what I love about it! Then if it does rate it low, it tells you WHYYYY. The best part is it explains out what the WHY is! So if there is some weird ingredient in the product, it explains what that is and what it does. Another awesome feature of this app is that it gives you suggestions for alternatives! It then also rates those on a scale from A-D.
