Who wouldn’t want to be in their own zombie movie? Your jogging routine will never be the same when Zombies, Run lands you right in the middle of a zombie motion picture. You listen with earphones as the Smartphone app takes you on a scary role playing adventure. You have to steer clear of the zombie population of undead and collect ammunition and medical supplies along the way. Once you’ve collected enough items, you’re given the choice of what area of the city to help, with what and unlock new areas to conquer. There are 30 different missions and you can even opt to listen to YOUR music while you run to avoid the zombies. Another really cool feature is the ability to “map” your progress on the web.

Nothing is more frustrating than setting a dietary goal and then finding it hard to maintain it with an on-the-go lifestyle. It’s hard to keep track of calories when you have such poor food choices available for take-out and restaurant fare. Add this app to your smartphone and you can set your personal weight loss goal. The program calculates automatically the caloric intake you need each day to get you to your weight loss target weight. You set the number of pounds you want to lose over a specified amount of time. The app does the rest. Pull out the smartphone and type in what you plan to eat, such as “two scrambled eggs and one slice of wheat toast with light butter.” The app then gives you the breakdown on calories, sodium, sugar, and fat for the foods. Don’t forget to include your workouts on the app. They help calculate the increase in calories allowed due to being more active. It’s a great way to break the challenge of losing weight down into a more manageable task. Increase your chances for success!
