My Fitness Pal

My Fitness pal iPhone appWhat a great app! Owned by Under Armour, this works great on the iPhone with a bunch of other apps too, so it works in conjunction with Apple’s own Health app and it also syncs with Map My Ride which I use when cycling.

With the help of these free apps, I have managed to lose over two stone in 4 months and apart from the odd grumble in my tummy, I haven’t really gone without. I’m just more mindful.

My ride to Harrold and back to watch the Pit Run

Cycling route changed

Lost?

When you’ve meticulously checked your route on Google Maps, and you have a plan in mind, seeing this kind of sign that sends you off in a different direction doesn’t help!

The plus side is that it added an extra couple of miles to my ride and helped me burn 810 calories that day.

My ride to Harrold and back to watch the Pit Run

I’m no Bradley Wiggins but pleased with my efforts seeing as I was previously doing between 2 and 6 miles!

I prefer off road cycling to on road, but I rode back on the road.
