My Absolute Favorite Tool for Staying on Plan

Today I want to share with you one of my very favorite tools for helping me stay accountable on

Let's face it, no matter how much I LOVE following this plan, sometimes it can be hard- especially at holidays, special events, when hubby brings home chocolate or because it's Monday!

Eating healthy can sometimes be hard no matter what plan you are following and no matter how much you LOVE that plan!

Am I right?

Yep, I'm right!

Oh! And what if you are the ONLY person in your household that gives a second thought to what goes in your mouth? That can make it even harder. 

Accountability helps.

Friends that are eating the same way as you helps.

Seeing ideas and getting recipes helps.

We can all use help.

So, I'm sharing with you one of my absolute favorite apps ever!

Seriously. I don't want to be without it. Ever.

I'm not kidding. I get nothing for telling you about this app. I just want you to experience it and to love it like I do.

Here, I'll give you a sneak peak.

This picture is a screenshot of my posts on Jan. 5. Here's what ya do-
you take a picture of everything you eat and log it in this app. 
How many times have you heard that the key to being healthy or losing weight is to log your food? Can I be honest, I hate logging my food - well, I did. Before I found YouFood.

You just snap a picture of your food and post it, and you can add a description if you want. 
Super simple.
I can log food, exercise, tips, encouraging thoughts, whatever!


Oh I just reminded myself of an infomercial - yikes!

You can follow other YouFoodies that follow the same plan as you, like Trim Healthy Mama or those with the same interests - running, large families, etc. There are so many interests and food plans on there I'm sure you will find what suits you. When you follow someone their posts show up in your feed and you see what they are eating/doing - I have gotten so many great ideas and recipes this way it is unreal!

And do you know what you can do when someone shares a recipe you love? You can save it in your "fridge"! Oh yes, a fridge. My fridge has multiple compartments - you decide how many and how to label them. It makes it so easy to keep track of foods you like and want to try.

Here is just a little snippet of my fridge.

BUT WAIT...there's more!
(I couldn't resist a little more infomercial)

The best thing about this app is the community of friends I have on there. I never dreamed I would make such great friends through an app. They encourage me, lift me up, pray with me, keep me accountable and inspire me. You probably can't understand it until you've experienced it, but it is amazing! 

So what are you waiting for? Go check it out! 

Look me up @RashelTHM 

Let me know you are coming from my blog and I'll be sure to follow you back - unless of course you want to keep your profile private. That is an option too and then no one sees your log but you. It is still a great way to track your food!

Go! Now!

Blessings my friends,
