A New Leaf
I've turned over a new leaf. Well an old new leaf. I am back on the work out/eating healthier bandwagon. I joined SparkPeople and it is a place where you can track calories, track exercise and has a lot of different forums and groups that can be very beneficial to helping keep people on track. Or so they say! :) But I have been on it for 4 days and of those 4 I have tracked my calories 3 of the 4 and I have exercised 3 of the 4. It is also helpful that the website is accessible through work. Most websites are blocked, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this one was not. I of course am not being compensated by them because I'm so not the blog they want to be endorsing! But I'm hoping that this website will be my go-to site. And I'm on board with this site because it's free as opposed to the weight watchers one which is not. My new goal is to reach 130 pounds by the end of the year. So that gives me 4 months to lose about 15 pounds. That is definitely an achievable goal as long as I keep it up! They have a blog that I can access on that website but instead of keeping up with 2 blogs I think I will just be copying and pasting any and all health-related blogs that I write up to the blog on the site. And if anyone else is interested in joining Spark People let me know their username and I will be your buddy!
