Ramping up for 2012
Saturday, January 14, 2012
I celebrated the New Year by breaking through the 200# Barrier. O Joy! O Rapture!
Yesterday I weighed in at 191.4 I can nearly taste the 180's. I am stoked. But I am also very aware that I need to get clearer about the balance of nutrition and the portion sizes in the foods I am eating. What I have done so far is to reduce the volume of food eaten daily, increase exercise and target whole foods to showcase all meals. This website has been very helpful in helping me to see that I need to shift away from such a protein rich diet, so I am attempting to build more healthy carb fare. With that in mind I just purchased a Cuisinart 7 cup food processor that I believe will help me a.] Create the Fast Food packets that help me through the week b.] spend less at the market by Not purchasing pre-cut veggies.
With this website I find that it is a very time-intensive endeavor to get started with this food tracking business, but already I can appreciate the time saving this investment reaps over the long haul. For the past 6 months I have been very faithfully logging sugar and what I am eating. But I had no tools to break that grouping into calories and nutritional values. This is great!
