I tend to be pretty low-tech when it comes to setting and working toward goals, but lots of people have more success using technology that can be tailored to their specific goal to track their progress. Today, I’m sharing a few apps and programs so you can find the one that works best for you!
For help meeting your health and fitness goals, keep a food and activity log with My Fitness Pal, which is available on the internet or on your mobile device with both iOS and Android apps!
I love the simplicity of 42 Goals, which offers an easy-to-use interface to let you track your goals on a daily basis.
If you’re looking for a monetary incentive to help you stay motivated, StickK may be the best option for you. Put your money where your mouth is by choosing a charity or person to receive your money if you don’t meet your goal (don’t worry, you get to choose a referee you trust to make that call for you!). Pretty motivating!
Follow in the footsteps of Jerry Seinfeld with the simple Don’t Break the Chain! app, which lets you mark off each day you complete your goal. As the chain grows, so will your motivation to stick with it!
For more advanced goal tracking, try the Lifetick program, which lets you set dreams, goals, milestones and deadlines with additional journal and report tools so you can record your insights and see your progress.
Do you prefer tracking your goals with an online program or good ol’ fashioned paper and pencil?
