It's a lot easier to stay on top of your goals when you keep track of your progress. Instead of getting discouraged when you don't feel like you've made any visible progress towards your goals, seeing improvement will help motivate you to keep working at them.
I hate it when I'm flipping through a magazine or browsing the web and I come across a fabulous dress or amazing pair of shoes that I just HAVE TO HAVE RIGHT NOW, but I can't find any information about the brand or where I can get them. The obsessive-compulsive shopper in me can get a little out of control trying to find them...
Like any college student (or anyone of our generation living in the digital age), I have a ton of music in my iTunes library – and I'm always adding more. I love finding new music from artists I've only recently discovered as well as those I've listened to for years, and the super-awesome website Beathound helps make that a whole lot easier.
Rezhound was created on the idea that restaurant reservations actually open up fairly often, and uses other people's changing plans to your advantage.
Choose what you're in the mood to eat for the week (i.e., chicken, beef, fish, etc.), and Food on the Table will them recommend a personalized weekly meal plan, full of easy recipes that fit your tastes and that include on-sale items.
You may have heard that a lot of employers will check the Facebook profiles of potential candidates. Now that many of you are getting ready to enter the professional world with internships or entry-level jobs, now is probably a great time to start cleaning your Facebook page of anything you wouldn't want them to see.
Sometimes, it's hard to make decisions and it's nice to get a second (or third, or twelfth) opinion. The problem is you can't always trust your friends' answers to be 100% truthful, especially when they're worried about your feelings or making you angry (case in point: the age-old "does this make me look fat?" question – there is no right answer to that one).
We're all used to being bombarded with random thoughts all day long, such as motivational quotes, daily reminders, and more. I'm always getting ideas for things I want to buy, ideas for the book I want to write, and more, so I usually scribble it down in a notebook before I forget about it.
Just enter in what kind of workout you're looking for (full body, arms, core, etc.), your main fitness goal (fat loss, muscle gain, etc.), whether you're working out at home or at the gym, and how much time you have, and GAIN Fitness creates a custom workout for you.
One way I like to stay on top of my resolutions is by making a list to remind me of my goals and track of my progress. While the basic handwritten list works just fine, a virtual version, such as Astrid, provides useful benefits that make it a better choice over the usual pen-and-paper kind.
Start a Resolution helps you keep that resolution by keeping you accountable. The person who signs up right before you do is assigned as your "coach." Your coach is in charge of motivating you, checking in on your progress, etc. via comments on the site.
Unfortunately, I'm still not quite done with my shopping, and those that are left on my list are the ones I have no idea what to get them, since I always want to get something unique or unexpected. But my new discovery, ThisIsWhyImBroke, helps with that problem!
The Useless Web is, as its name implies, a compilation of useless sites all over the web. When you visit the site, you'll see it's made up of only a few words: "Take me to a useless website please."
