Happy Monday...

Good Morning everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far. I started my morning with waking up to a lovely thunder/lightening storm...LOVE it! haha and then I woke up and hit the gym this morning. Awesome feeling!

Most of you know I hit a HUGE accomplishment last week and jogged my first mile the entire way through! So this morning I told myself yeah I am going to jog, but its okay if I don't make it to a mile. Well I surprised myself yet again and was able to jog the FULL mile! Its such a great feeling knowing that I am able to do that. I never thought I would even like jogging let alone exercise! Its a part of my life now and I love it!

So while I was at the gym, I over heard these 2 women discussing this website where you can go online and track your daily diet, exercise, measurements, and pretty much EVERYTHING. So I took a look at it and its a free website, but it has quite a bit of stuff on there and so I wanted to share it will all of you. Its, I tired it out and its a really cool website. Very easy to use and it calculates everything for you. If you type in a food and it doesn't have it then if you have the nutrition label of that food it allows you to create your own label. You can fix the serving sizes and everthing. I wasn't sure who likes to track their daily intake and exercise, but I like doing it because it keeps me accountable so I hope it comes in handy for anyone who likese to keep track of what they are doing.

I hope everyone has a great week. My goal this week is to try and make it to the gym everyday this week and make sure I am really focusing on my food intake and fluid intake. Weigh in day will be friday for me. As always lets shed those extra pounds together!!



  1. I used fitday for a long time, but recently switched to SparkPeople. There are a couple things I like about sparkpeople...first is that they have a recipe builder, so you can figure out the nutrition information for things you make yourself. Second you can group common foods you eat together and copy/paste them to other days (so if I eat the same lunch three days in a row, I don't have to go find each food item and enter it in for each day). Third, I love the fact that you can use nutrition information for food items that OTHER people have entered. This is great if you don't know how many calories in 5 Trader Joes Mini 12 Grain Crackers, because someone else has already entered it. The only issue with this is that sometimes, other people enter it you have to be careful about that. Finally, they have a mobile app for android OS that's pretty cool, too.

  2. You sound like you are really ...REALLY achieving...Great news!
