Put "Lose It" app on the cell...

Monday, September 10, 2012

Staying committed and away from chocolate, but let be honest here: It's like some kind of "withdrawal" (I've never been addicted to any substance other than sugar, but I'm imagining the craving is similar). Every night when 10 pm rolls around the intense cravings become almost impossible to resist. I'm a bit of a night owl..bedtime recently is midnight -1 am ish. My experience has been that this will subside to some extent when I've more or less "purged" the additional sugars from my system - within around 2 weeks.

A friend, who I'm teaming up with at the gym for motivation, suggested adding the "Lose It" app to my phone. It's pretty cool and appears easy to use - tracking weight loss, calories in, and exercise cal. burned. It's similar to the SP tracking system, but a bit more user friendly for those particular tasks. For items that have a bar code , you can simply scan that and apparently it adds the info in for you.

We have a family wedding to attend in Colorado on Oct. 20th and though it'll break the bank for us to attend, we feel it's important for us to be there. It'll be the first time in almost 30 years that I've flown in a plane!! How pathetic, I know, but our vacations have always been places we could drive to - finances dictating the decision. In any event, I thought the wedding could be another "motivational event" to keep my eye on the ball.

Exercise: Bootcamp for 1 hour; 20 min Elliptical; 20 min ST

Food: Haven't actually tracked the cal yet (just installed the app), but no chocolate & lots of salad stuff/ fish/ egg beaters...the usu. "good stuff"

Have a great day!!

    Soooo proud of you! Love your determination! You're doing great, and with such a difficult addiction too! You've got this!

    The best thing about flying for me since I've lost some weight ~ I'm not nervous the seat belt won't fit me! I've had some close calls in the past, and have had to ask someone to click it for me before, but not any more! That will be awesome for you too!

    I have a wedding out of state on Oct. 20 too! That's the one in Nashville, but I can drive that from St. Louis ~ it's just 5 1/2 hours or so. And, that's my birthday, so I'll be doing something fun on my 56th birthday this year!

    Good luck with the lose it app. Sounds cool!

    SparkPeople developers should download the Lose It app and see what so great about it. I use it and love it. No more tracking on Sparks because I can easily track on Lose It. And it scans barcodes! Awesome.
