Free calorie counter

In case some of you aren’t aware, there is a free calorie counter on WebMD that will tally your daily intake.

I have it saved on my cell phone home page and have been using it for a few days now.

It is so easy to use and has been helping me to not only tally my daily caloric intake but to be aware of how many calories different meals are.

It looks like this:

Once you put something in, it does this:

I really like it so thought I’d share!

5 more IG accounts I love and you will too!

IG Accounts Part Deux!

Bodyposapanda

You’re going to love this woman. I didn’t know about her until I saw her on Russell Brand’s YouTube channel. After I saw this, I instantly looked her up on IG and followed her. What I get from her feed is more than just body positivity. She’s brave, intelligent and beautiful. Her message is that media tries to make us feel like crap and we fall right into the trap unless we educate ourselves, become AWARE of the mental “food” we’re digesting and curate the crap out of the content we allow ourselves to see. I personally relate to all of that because I’ve been doing it for myself for a while now and have noticed a big difference in my own life. However, I’m not quite ready to post any photos of myself in a bikini yet. Maybe one day!

Wild Passengers

This account is mostly about humans helping animals and animals helping animals and animals helping humans. I just love every single post. A “restored faith in humanity” kinda blog. So much love! Most of the posts are very short videos but they did have this cute pic on there that I’m showing above. Much to love on this account.

Mytherpistsays

This site is WAY too relatable. Like, scary relatable. How do they KNOW??????

Thesill

If you like house plants, you’ll like this site. It’s very pretty. Not educational but very inspirational. It just makes me feel good to see live, healthy, happy houseplants in my feed. My home has them so my feed should have them too, ami-right?

Yoga.tuts

Follow this site because…free yoga tuts (duh). Yoga classes are darn expensive!

That’s already five!

Don’t forget to follow ours as well for daily inspirations and maybe a selfie or two. 😊

It’s small but slowly growing. Everyone has to start somewhere!

5 Instagram accounts you should know about!

Joe Therapy

No nonsense stretches anyone can do. It is like getting free physical therapy. He is very knowledgeable, doesn’t post a lot of personal stuff, gets right to the point of stretches and exercises for every muscle group. He posts short videos (so you can see the exercises in action with the correct postures needed) and gives brief but understandable instructions. There are a lot of other physical therapists out there who go into more educational detail but this guy has found the perfect sweet spot of being not too chatty or educational (not that there’s anything wrong with that if you want to learn everything you can but I want to just know the stretch) and being direct, informative and personable. Not annoying at all. I just love his account. You can scroll through it to easily find whatever muscle group you want to target because of the clear photos he posts like the one above.

gypsyon_

Her name is Hannah and she’s a super cool, hippy-ish, feminist, yoga-doing, ballsy, what- you-see is-what-you-get woman who shares her journey of life with the world like an open book. I mean, a whole lot of her life; all the good, bad, beautiful, even sometimes ugly or regrettable parts of life that a lot of people would choose to keep personal. I find her to be fascinating, inspiring, motivational yet down to earth. Besides showing her incredible yoga routines, she’s able to capture her life in her account in a way that’s at all not in your face. I can just tell she’s a beautiful person inside and out because her authenticity really shows.

nutrition_facts_org

Dr. Michael Gregor, MD, promotes a plant based diet but even if you are a meat eater (probably especially if you are a meat eater) you should check it out because there is some really good info on there. There’s stuff I’ve learned from here that surprised me, validated my plant-based diet and encouraged me to continue on the path of eating healthier. It motivates me to do better with my diet. I know that when I eat healthier I always feel better but sometimes I do need motivation (in the form of education) so I don’t fall back into old unhealthy patterns of eating. I believe that moderation is key to any diet. I can’t live off of plants alone. I need some chocolate in my life or I might go insane. It’s nice to have dinner out sometimes and just not even worry about the calories. But I am one who needs to know the rationale behind things before I will follow it. I don’t want someone to tell me to eat this vegetable because it’s good for me. This site gives you the facts. I like that. I haven’t purchased his cookbook yet but it is on my list. isn’t it nice to see a medical doctor talking about nutrition and prevention of disease?

dominomag

I was SO sad when the actual magazine stopped publishing in 2009. It was relaunched in 2013 with Michelle Adams (co-founder of Lonny mag, another one of my favorites) as the editor in chief. In 2018 it was acquired by a digital media company called “Multiply” from its original owners. Regardless of all of that, the IG account has all the same types of photos I loved from the original magazine. I’m not sure what it is about what they capture but I’m always inspired to make my home a nicer place when I look at the photos. There’s something about them that are stylish, fresh and most importantly, attainable. The homes always look like someplace anyone could live in, not just the rich and famous. I’m not rich or famous so I tend to not follow people who are. Though other design sites are beautiful, if I can’t attain the look, they don’t inspire me.

The Dodo

No words necessary. Just look at a couple of posts of these amazing, adorable, quirky, lovable animals and BAM! You’re hooked.

There you have it! I don’t know if these are obvious IG accounts to follow or not but maybe there’s one or two you had overlooked?

Let me know if you follow these blogs and what you think! What’s your favoriting IG account?

Oh!!!

Seriously I almost forgot! Don’t forget to follow ours too!

Much love!
