Technology makes us sedentary, and leads us to making bad, unhealthy choices.  So I thought, “Is there any way that technology could help us make incrementally better choices?”  What are the incentives you ask?  Well let’s start with feeling better.  Exercising increases your energy and motivation. There's no magic pill that can turn you into Rocky Balboa, but there are ways to fit in a daily exercise routine and help make you accountable by tracking your workouts.

The only app I've added to my

The only app I've added to my phone that falls under health and wellness is called, "Lose It!"  It is free and when I'm feeling like I've gained a few pounds, I use it for a few days to track my food choices. It's similar to Weight Watchers online but doesn't operate on points, but rather true caloric intake. You can track your exercise and set goals for yourself. Also, you can sign up to receive motivational emails. The best feature, in my opinion, is the ability to scan the bar code on any food items you are eating and it will automatically bring up the item and calories.
