Tracking Calories

Michelle visited and brought her Weight Watchers materials with her. I am very intrigued. I've been exercising religiously, four times a week, for months now. I'm in much better shape, but clearly could stand to lose some weight. In the past, calorie counting was the only thing that helped. But I had trouble keeping track of the calories.

But I've been thinking, and with my new laptop, I think it'll be much easier to count calories, especially if I do in in a Palm memo so the Palm is in my purse when I'm at a restaurant. My laptop is open and ready at home and at work, so it's easy to access the calorie log in those places. So I'll be starting, again, to keep track.

I'm not doing Weight Watchers, though. Meetings are just too touchy feely for me, plus I already pay a bunch for Strollerfit. Strollerfit is totally worth it, but I can find calorie databases on-line. I'll do weigh-ins and evaluations of how I did the week before on Sundays. Maybe I'll even blog about it, to make myself more accountable.

Or, maybe, I'll give up by Tuesday. :/

There is a program out there somewhere (I have the link at work but not home) that is specifically for palms. It's a calorie counter thingy. It has a list of all kinds of foods and the calorie content, and you can add in what you eat and it keeps track of your calories all day long. So, at the end of the day you can pull up what you ate and how many calories it's a pretty neat program, you should do a google search for it
