Weigh-In…

Hey! ‘Member back in January when you were all “This year I’m gonna lose that extra 10 pounds!”… How’s that going so far?…

…Yeah, me neither. But have faith friends! Some new resources to re-kickstart your stalled weight loss plans:

1) A couple of apps to motivate you: MyFitnessPal and Gorilla Workout:

– My Fitness Pal is a free calorie counter, available online and on your smartphone. You can add quick calories, your own recipes, and scan bar codes to make tracking as hassle-free as possible. Plus, it’s super customizable and you can add friends to help keep you motivated! (friend me if you want, my screenname is llibert39)

– I was turned onto Gorilla Workout by my future roomie Danny. It’s a great app for resistance workouts, no weights, no gym required! If you’re stuck in a boring strength training program and you need to mix it up, give this a try.

2) Pump up the volume: Refinery29 has a new workout playlist for you, and Pandora’s Running (Radio Mix) station is a good’n. If you’re like me and you hate it when you get 3 crappy songs in a row, try this: When I find a new workout station I like, I’ll listen to it for a few days to tweak it to my preferences.

4) Check out this video from FitSugar for a quick 10 minute fat blasting workout, perfect for early rises and lunch breaks.

5) If you’re currently an office slug comme moi, you basically have to sit on your ass in order to get any work done. Try these little tweaks to get that muscle tone back. (also courtesy of Refinery29… just start following this site if you’re not already, it’s hella-tight).

6) My lovely, badass sister found this awesome workout. Beware; it will kill you, but the intensity ensures rapid heart rate and high calorie burn:
