Not that these two topics have anything to do with each other, lol, but they are the subject of today's blog.
I started a message board topic about quick meals and many people responded suggesting Laughing Cow Cheese. I could never find it in the store. Wasn't really sure what I was looking for. Then some kind soul sent me a SparkMail telling me exactly where to get it. I found it at the grocery store yesterday, and OMG! It is so good! I have been spreading it on some KASHI crackers and it is just decadent! 35 calories for a wedge that will cover 4 big crackers. Total of 165 healthy, filling calories. I just wanted to share that in case somebody else may have never heard of it or was curious if it was worth trying, YES! It is!
SO today was my first day wearing my Go Wear Fit (BodyBugg). I can hardly tell that I am wearing it. I loved looking at my watch all throughout the day tracking my steps and my calories burned. I am in awe of modern technology! I wore it at the gym this morning and it accurately counted every stride I took on the elliptical and counted it as a step. However, the calorie comparison was off! I had always known that those machines over inflate how many calories you burn, but my elliptical said I burned 480 (for a 48 minute workout) while my GWF had me at 260. And I must say I was quite offended when I came home and looked on the computer and saw that it counted my time on the elliptical as "moderate" as opposed to "vigorous" activity. All this time I thought I was exercising vigourously! I better think again! LOL!
I seem to be just loving it! It really keeps me aware of my daily activity and keeps me motivated. I never enjoyed tracking my food before, but now that I can track it on the GWF website and compare against my calorie burn, IT IS FUN!
I heavily debated whether or not to get one... even had some buyer's remose after hitting that "purchase" button. I kept thinking that I will probably lose interest in it after a couple of months just like every other weightloss product I have tried. But then I thought, I haven't lost interest with SparkPeople! And it's been 6 months! And even if I DO lose interest in the GWF after awhile... I should be close to my goal weight in 3 months! If I can get to my goal weight witht he help of this "thing" on my arm, then "yes". I'll shell out the money for it in a heartbeat. My sweet hubby never even asked how much it cost, lol. That's his "way" of supporitng my weightloss efforts- never questioning how much these "fads" cost.
Now that I have it I am totally glad I bought it! And I (at least after day 1) highly reccom mend to others. It is exactly what I needed to boost me back up after a terrible month filled with terrible binging, emotional eating, and laziness. I am pumped up and ready to succeed at this once and for all. C'mon MARCH! We're off to a great start this month!
