Getting back on track




So the getting fit and healthy track has slowed down a bit. Fortunately I've not put back on what I did lose :) I have recently gotten back on track, and it's come from a surprising source, a food journal. Thanks to my new phone, I've added My Fitness Pal, an app that helps me keep track of what I eat and, the number of calories I should consume to lose weight with my mostly sedentary lifestyle. I've only been doing this since Sunday, but it's made a big difference. Not in being more aware of what I eat, I've been doing that for awhile now, but more that it's really gotten me to see the relationship between balancing what I eat and exercise. The only downside is that if you're prone to getting a little obsessive about stuff, the app can get dangerous. I've already decided that once I reach my goal weight it's gone.

For right now though, it's a great tool that I'd encourage anyone to try out. If you don't have a phone that's supported, then start a food journal. Just remember to be honest :)
