Is it possible to this early in feel a bit better already? I don’t know if it’s my imagination and wishful thinking but I feel like I’m not as bloated. I also don’t find myself thinking after any meals whew I feel so full as in I’m stuffed. It actually feels much more comfortable.
Since I am such a procrastinator I am using MyFitnessPal and logging all food and my Garmin watch is tracking all steps and adding them to MyFitnessPal. The only negative I see with MyFitnessPal is making sure I log everything and taking the time at first to set up my database of foods I eat. The great thing is once they are in there you just select them each time adding them to whatever meal / snack you have them in. The aim of it is that eat only X amount of Kilojoules / Carbs / Fats / Protein / Sodium & Sugar each day. It’s actually really good because you can eat whatever you want as long as you record it and your total at the end of the day is less than your daily allowance. So for example today I entered in breakfast / lunch and what I intended to have for dinner and then saw that I was well below the recommended daily intake. After looking up the nutrition list of Fruit Bursts lollies I was able to have 1 serving of them (4 lollies) and still be absolutely fine with my target. It is good because I can see where I’m at and it stops me boredom grazing because then I would go over my allowance. Oh and the more exercise you do, for me the steps counted, you can sync your device to the MyFitnessPal and it calculates and you can even have more to eat. If you don’t eat enough it even tells you that you are not eating enough.
With my Garmin it sets a target for steps each day and I have achieved it for the last 3 days in a row. Each time it does increase the daily target so lets see how high I can get it before I can’t achieve it. Only problem is my bloody foot is freakin sore!!! I am going to hobble to bed soon and it’s going to hurt like a bitch but I am so determined to do this I’m not going to let it stop me. Even if I can’t achieve the steps as long as my food intake stays below the recommended daily allowance I will be fine.
Probably a boring post for you all but I am trying to post each day to keep me accountable and focused on what I am trying to achieve. If you are interested in the MyFitnessPal it is free to use so here is the link – www.myfitnesspal.com
