The Other 23 Hours… Part 3

So I have talked about the Fitbit Flex and MyFitnessPal and how I use it to keep me on track for the hours I am not in the gym.  Today I want to go ahead and open myself up for ridicule and mockery, but today I will be talking about how I use Pinterest to help me do right during my day.

Pinterest, even though it is thought by many to be a girly website is a VITAL part of my daily/weekly/monthly routine.  There are days I can not get into the gym and I use a home workout that I can find on the site.  When the routine of Chicken and veggies, or fish and asparagus gets old, I can go to Pinterest and search for healthy options to keep us from burning out on the basics.  Some of the recipes that are labeled healthy on that site are FAR from healthy, so be aware of your ingredients and fats that are being used to cook with when you jump on a Pinterest recipe.

I also use Pinterest for basic motivation.  There are links to some impressive transformation stories, quotes with cool pictures, and just overall motivating links about fitness, food, and faith.

Pros: Tons of Recipes, Motivational Articles/Quotes, Workouts for when you can’t get to the gym

Cons: “Girly Website”, Some recipes aren’t what they say they are, and after awhile you see the same things over and over again.

Here is a link to a recipe I found on there last week that was a perfect example of a recipe we needed at the right time, we were getting burnt out on our routine lunch and we worked this into the weekly prep list and BOOM.  Loved it.

MEAT. BACON.
