I like Vega a lot too. What are the evil 6?
I have signed up for a Best Body Bootcamp and a Diet Bet challenge. Both keep me accountable for working out at least 5 times a week. I agree that knowing how good the workout makes me feel helps keep me motivated as well.
I have also tried a bit of both. So far, TBT fits with my schedule a bit better and requires little to no equipment, which I really like.
I use My Fitness Pal. It's a great app that can even take bar codes to track any packaged foods. It does a great job of setting your calories for the day and adjusting for workouts.
