App Review: SlimKicker and Digital Kitchen Scale GIVEAWAY!

20 Jul

Thanks to my plant-based diet, my energy level has been through the roof! Before my diet change, I didn’t have the energy or the drive to exercise. I would come home, nap, eat, and sit around. Now, I wake up with no caffeine or sugar and start my day energized – sometimes I even exercise twice a day!

Along with getting in better shape overall, my long-term goal is to run a 5K (I ran my first full mile without stopping on Wednesday – super excited). In order to keep myself on track and motivated, I have been trying out different fitness apps that I can use on my phone. I came across an app called SlimKicker that not only tracks your exercise sessions, but also lets you track your meals/calories and gives you challenges to work towards to gain points. The more points you rack up, the closer you get to your reward – and YOU get to pick what you will reward yourself with. To keep you motivated, you can upload a picture of your reward (whether it’s that new pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing, or a book you’ve been dying to read) and they will remind you to reward yourself when you reach your goal. It’s colorful, easy to use, and really helpful when it comes to seeing your progress. They even have recipe ideas! SlimKicker is available for Apple and Android phones and is FREE! Take a look at the different areas of the app:

First, you have your personal profile page.

Profile Page

Your profile page shows everything involved in the app – points, rewards, and achievements. Your leaderboard shows how you rank among your friends.

The Diet page lets you log your food and you gain points by eating healthy calories like fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

On the the Body page, you can log your weight, set a weight loss goal, and log your exercise in order to gain points toward your rewards. They have a great selection of exercise types that even calculate the calories you burned for you!

That brings us to the Challenge page and the topic of our GIVEAWAY! SlimKicker encourages its users to complete challenges, like giving up soda for a week or eating a salad a day, to earn points towards their chosen reward.

GIVEAWAY!

    How about giving up alcohol for a week or even a whole month? Beer and sugary mixed drinks are full of calories!

    Doing 10 push ups randomly 3 times on Monday, then 4 times Tuesday, etc, then 5, and by the time you reach Sunday you’re at 100 push ups! :D

    For one week, create a different healthy recipe every day using purple, green and yellow (you can use blue instead of purple so lots of berry possibilities). It can be a recipe for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, appetizer, whatever, but note the word “healthy”, which means using Froot Loops does not count. ;)

    Hold a plank when the commercials start, and until they end… It’s hard at first, but once u get used to it, it’s pretty easy! Do this for a week and ur core will strengthen.
