Friday Exercise Check-In!

Okay. I admit it. I am just not as committed to this exercise thing as I should be. I’ll try harder. This week I jogged once (last Friday) and walked twice (about 2.5 miles) Wednesday and Thursday. It was raining cats and dogs, but that is not an excuse as I could have done a workout video via Roku. Honestly, I just didn’t feel like using my precious, relaxing nap time to work out. I should, but I don’t.

But, I did refresh my eating log at fitday.com. I heard a story on NPR about how those who use a food diary lose 20% more weight. Since I have not been paying nearly as much attention to what I have been eating as I should have, I started again. The cool thing about this food log is that it not only counts calories, but also nutrients, types of food, etc. So, after a week or a month, you can see what your diet needs more of and make sure it is more balanced. We’ll see if I can keep this up slightly better than I have kept up with my exercise. And I will try harder this week.

    Is that website free? I may have to do that! That sounds just like weight watchers, but does not tell you how many points you have eaten. But I know that I can only eat around 1000-1200 calories a day. I worked out on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I missed Monday because Drew got up too late to go to the gym.

      It is totally free. I love it… except for the silly little ads that all show hugely fat people suddenly skinny just by taking a pill. Why do they accept that ad revenue? Anyway, its a cool site.
