Free Food Diary and Fitness Tools

by on February 1, 2012


Weight loss, always such a fun topic.  Which program, how many calories, points, pre-made meals, what works best?   Jennifer Hudson looks so fantastic and lost weight with Weight Watchers.   My cousin Michael and his wife Gloria have lost weight by just shear willpower and stepping away from the table and combined with walking everyday.  He has come off his blood pressure meds!  So I am on the journey of finding a good plan and accountability.

With both the internet and apps for my smartphone, I can track what I eat at home or on the road.  MyFitnessPal  allows you to lookup foods and add them to your food diary – and with your smartphone scan the UPC code with your camera and instantly pull up the item and nutrition info.   It amazes me that this service is free!  You can also add buddies and keep accountability with each other.

Looking to workout – there are TONS of Fitness videos on Youtube:  Yoga, Resistance band workouts, Morning Workouts, and also check and search for workouts – he has a bunch!  My doctor has told me that walking at least 20 minutes at least 5 times a week can completely change your health.  So I have made it a goal to walk at least 5 times a week and track what I eat.  Will update you from time to time, helps keep me accountable  :}

(Of course be sure to check with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise plan.)
