So I ended my 2014, and started 2015 with a goal/resolution to save more money! Something I am honestly not the best at…

Any who,  I have found a few handy ways to tuck away spare cash throughout the year using special apps that reward me for the things I do all the time: workout,  track my meals,  and go grocery shopping. ..lol!

Three apps in particular are on regular rotation in my cell phone practically every week and some everyday. Their website links and my personal use and app reviews will be outlined in the following blog series: Super Saver Mobile App Review. The first app review begins as follows:

Target Cartwheel -CHOOSE:SCAN:SAVE

To get started simply download the app and register with your Target account or any of the popular social media accounts, or simply your basic email address.

This app let’s you choose hundreds of offers from across every category in Target stores and receive discounts from 5 to 15% off. Plus, new offers are added regularly!

image

Just simply create a shopping list of items you want that you find in the offers list and scan the bar code at checkout to receive an instant discount on your purchase.

The app is very user friendly and can even be used on top of any clipped coupons you have.

My Target Cartwheel

Have you checked your macros lately? Can you say off hand how many total fat grams, total grams of carbohydrates, and total protein grams you’ve consumed in a 24 hour period! I can and have to have 30 days worth of intimate conversations with and about them, with myself,  my body, my kitchen, and my coach. It’s a beautiful relationship,  because I know the end result is going to be amazing!

I have always been good about food journaling, but since i hit 30 days to the stage,  I have gotten so close with my macro’s relationship that we plan our futures together in black and white before the day even starts! Yeah that pic is my food journal macronutrient totals  for the next 24 hours, already planned out with total macros that I have already sent to my coach for his approval! Trust the plan, trust the process!

During all of this I reflect back on how i used to have to beg clients to send in food journals and on a weekly,  not even a daily basis,  and always got excuses. It would frustrate the heck out of me, because there’s no room to wonder why the results are not showing up from the workouts I would give some of them if they haven’t willingly changed their diets!

image

I write this and shake my head.  My how the tables have turned,  but needless to say,  nobody has to beg for mine, because I know how important it is to the overall process.

image

Yes, even trainers complete food journals,especially when we have our own fitness and athletic endeavors to achieve! It’s important to reaching your full potential in whatever you expect to achieve along your fitness journey,  regardless of your overall goal.

image

You don’t have to be prepping for the main stage to get to know the Macro’s intimately.  Heck just do it because you love your body and want to be mindful of what’s going into it everyday!
