An app might just help me to reach my fitness goals. My phone is always with me in case I get a call from the nursery, so if could combine this vigilance with a nagging app that tells me I need to get off my behind, it might motivate me.
The app from Nike might be a good start. Jessie J will be featuring on the Nike + Training app from March (oh, that's today, pinch punch and all that) and with a move called the Jessie Drop Squat threatening to cause buttock pain, it sounds great.
Here's a list of the top 10 fitness apps according to the Independent. I love the idea of Fitocracy, it sounds a bit like a game, as you strive to get to the highest level by logging the exercises you've done.
Another winner is myfitnesspal, which helps you count calories. You scan the barcode or browse their database of foods to log exactly what you've been eating. The only trouble is, it might be tempting not to log that sneaky hob nob.
