The divorce papers have been filed (no one can claim that they’re honestly surprised…) – and it’s official, according to news reports from across the country Kim Kardashian has filed to divorce husband of 72 days – Kris Humphries. (October 31 isn’t just the day Kim Kardashian filed for divorce … it’s the same date that Kim met Kris Humphries for the very first time at a New Jersey Nets basketball game back in 2010.) A suprised, Kris Humpheries exclaimed to TMZ that he was blindsided by the filed papers, but “is willing to do everything to repair” his torn marriage. Imagine if things would’ve never gotten this far. What if E! producers never “arranged” the relationship for television ratings? What if sponsors never spent $17 Million on the elaborate “made for tv ratings” wedding? What if you never wasted a single second of your life, watching that reality-dream wedding special on television? In case you haven’t fully mourned the pending divorce like these DASH vigil supporters – don’t worry, you still have time.
Although the paraded mariage was 72 days young, it was a 72-days of entertaining nuptuals that could’ve been avoided with a little investment of the iphone kind. Check out our list of iphone apps that could’ve saved the union, brand & careers of Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries.
1. The Boyfriend Calculator – An intuitive, easy-to-use social networking utility that helps you rate the guys in your life using the personal qualities that are most important to you. I’m sure, Reggie Bush would’ve been in that app somewhere…
2. Which Celebrity Will Marry You? - Talk about making it easy, Kim K could’ve avoided this entire mess, by downloading this iphone app first.
3. Urban Daddy - When you’re out on the town and looking for the perfect spot to go for food, drink or a little late-night debauchery, you can find the right place for privacy. With infidelity rumors flying around from both sides, this app would’ve been perfect for finding the next move without the paparazzi finding you first.
4. Why Did I Marry You Anyway? – When tabloids began noticing the tension between Kim & Kris during their engagement, this should’ve been their immediate marriage counseling emergency app.
5. Marriage Timer – As an app used to count down the days of nuptual bliss (which only reached day 72 for the couple) – this app would’ve been perfect to at least remind the couple to strive for a full 365 days of marriage. (And shut down the critics who said
and were right that they wouldn’t last.)
By now, you know I’ve tried losing weight for a while now. From personal trainers at the gym to over the counter weightloss shakes and everything in between – but this, this right here? The MyFitnessPal app is a true blessing to my life! First off, I can’t even take the credit for discovering this monumental phone app. A friend of mine hipped me to the app and shared how she’s absolutely obsessed with it. MyFitnessPal is the fastest and easiest to use calorie counter, EVER. With the largest food database of any calorie counter (over 1,000,000 foods), and amazingly fast food and exercise entry – there is no better diet app – period.
As a unique calorie-counting app, you can easily input the foods, snacks, beverages and even vitamins that you consume – all while the app calculates everything from your total caloric intake to the amount of nutrients that’s lacking in your daily diet. Once you input your statistics (age, current weight, desired weight, etc) MyFitnessPal calculates the daily caloric diet that you need to adhere to in order to achieve your desired weight…but get this, you can set your daily desired caloric goal and it automatically reconfigures and even gives you the expected date that (if you adhere to the daily calorie goals) you should reach your goal weight. (Rejoice low calorie HGC dieters, REJOICE!)
It’s not just a calorie counting app, but also a fitness diary too! The element that gives me joy when using this app is that along with counting calories, it also considers your daily exercise and adjusts your caloric measurement to reflect the true amount of calories you can have in order to stay on track. For example, if you ate 1500 calories worth of McDonald’s in one day and you had a 1200 calorie maximum diet, you could do 30-45 minutes of cardio (or enough cardio to burn 300 calories) and the MyFitnessPal app will count the burned calories toward your daily goal – proving that you can have your McDonald’s meals and lose weight too!
With any weightloss plan, it’s also much more effective when you have weightloss partners on the journey with you. MyFitnessPal knows this and has the option to link up with other MyFitnessPal users using the MyFitnessPal Newsfeed. (Diet with friends and lose up to 3x more…) Within my first week, I’ve already lost 6lbs and I’m well on my way towards my fitness goal. Are you on MyFitnessPal? Let’s become friends online and beat this weightloss giant together! (Username: DivasandDorks)
