    I got my first smartphone this summer and am amazed at how integrated and smooth my life has become. It’s wonderful for coordinating my online reading, podcasts, grocery lists, recipes, you name it. I expected that however and am most surprised to have found an app to support my goals for healthy living. Which turns supports my husband’s goals and my children’s future lifestyles. Keeping myself motivated is key, and the Android app Noom is wonderful at that. It is a workout tracker, food tracker, and motivational coach all rolled into one. I’m so impressed. I’m wondering if some of the apps you listed are on Android?

What's on your mind?
