Iphone Apps that Organize My Life

Between being out of town and all the rainy weather we have been having, my outfit posts have been put on hold. So I wanted to share with you guys a few iphone apps that have made my life SO much more easier and efficient during this very busy schedule I've been keeping.

For me, this has been THE year of weddings. I am a bridesmaid for three weddings and attending several others. Working out and eating better has been an essential part of my every day schedule. Two apps that I use constantly are MyFitnessPal and MapMyRun.

MyFitnessPal helps me keep track of what I'm eating during the day and tracks all my nutritional information. It also helps me keep track of exercise on a daily basis. I use MapMyRun when I go on long walks. There is a GPS component that helps me keep track of how far I've gone and an estimated calorie loss (It lets me indicate I'm walking rather than running.)

Nike Training Club and my local gym (O2 Fitness) apps help me plan my gym exercises. Nike Training Club gives me several different routines to chose from and my local gym app gives me a weekly calendar with all of my favorite classes.

Since I have had to make time for all of this exercise, I have also had to make sure I don't miss any other appointments in my personal and professional worlds. Plus I combine my schedule with my husband's and it all gets a little hectic. I have found the SimplyUs app has changed my life! This application allows me and my sig other to sync calendars, to do lists, and grocery lists. It also allows me to indicate what I want him to see so he isn't overwhelmed with my daily work meetings, just appointments that concern him. It is incredibly simple to use and we use it on a daily basis!

I hope I have given you a few ideas if you are in need of a little streamlining in your life. I know I am always in need of figuring out what is the best, most efficient way to run my schedule. Plus I love being able to track what I've accomplished!

Have you found any other apps that help with this?

That SimplyUS app is such a cool idea! Makes sense to be able to share your calendars and create lists you can both contribute too. Will have to check this out. Thanks!
