Well… I just completed 2 weeks of regular logging and input into the Fitness application, www.MyFitnessPal.com As I have a BlackBerry ‘MyFitnessPal’ is the one of the two highly rated free Fitness apps available to me, the other one being ‘LoseIt!’ which is only available to iPhone, iPad and iTouch users.

After you sit as a sedentary individual all day, staring at a computer, and breathing half the breaths that an active person breaths due to sitting there is no wonder you are tired and unmotivated.
