yeah, that is me.
HAHAHA, anyways I have been feeling my blogging mojo and already have a few posts planned for next week!
But since it is Thursday I am here to bring you another new thing I am trying to get healthier. For those of you who do not know what I am talking about, one of my resolutions this year was to try something new each week to try to make myself a healthier person. I am posting these each Thursday.
Sometimes they are bigger things other times, they are something small. But each week I am trying to make myself a healthier person.
On tuesday night when I took a rest night from the gym (because hello, my apartment was a WRECK), I had finished all the dishes and was really thinking about my goals. I want to hit 50 lbs lost by the cruise, which is in EXACTLY 60 DAYS!!! AHHHHH! Well to do that I need to lose another 7-8 lbs, I have been stuck for the last 4ish weeks teetering between the same 2-3lbs and I need to change something.
I have mixed up my workouts and so i want to focus on my eating. I am not saying I eat bad, because I really don't. I am good MOST of the time, but when I am not sticking to a plan. I REEEEALLY go overboard. Portion Control, what is that?
Therefore I decided to download my fitness pal.
I am going to start tracking my foods. One it is a good responsibility piece because if I know I am going to have to log it, it will make me rethink what I am putting in my mouth. Two I love how you can track for the next day. Since I meal prep, I already know my main meals/snacks for the day so I can put them in. Then add anything additional I eat during the day
This was a sample of my day yesterday.
I logged errrrrthang.
Does anyone else track? I put in my workout as well, but my question is...WHY does it not calculate calories burned from lifting? Can i fix this? I know I burned cals when I did legs yesterday, but it did not come up when i entered my strength training.
Also, any other tips/tricks for using My Fitness Pal are appreciated!!
