No extra 10 pounds are going to stand between you and your wedding day with your photographer true love. With these smartphone fitness apps, you can pump up your wedding workout, track your diet, get in shape, and shed the pounds, just in time for the I do’s.

Lose It! (Free)

No, we don’t mean your mind during wedding planning stress. This weight-loss program and calories counter is a no-brainer for getting into wedding day shape. It helps you set goals for weight loss, exercise, nutrition, blood pressure, sleep, and more. It even reminds you to log your meals if you forget. There’s nothing you and this app can’t do.

MyFitnessPal (Free)

Type in your wedding date and goal weight and your new pal sets a daily net calorie amount to make it happen. It has a huge food database—more than 5,000,000—and a giant Dining Out guide. Scan the bar code on packaged foods or enter food items one at a time. For exercise, enable their new step tracker or add your own exercises (shoveling snow is an option). Their 65 million members have lost almost 200 million pounds combined. Your extra pounds don’t stand a chance.

Zombies, Run! ($3.99)

This running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, brings the zombiepocolypse straight to your headphones through orders and voice recordings. When you get back home, the supplies you’ve collected while running help build and grow your base for your next trip. Just think of the zombies as your future in-laws. That’ll get you moving.
