A Little Math For Thought

This Sparked Me!

I know calorie counting is kind of a pain but this wonderful website does it for you. First of all, make sure you're always adding your Tbsp of oil or butter, & even your 5 calorie stick of gum. All of this stuff adds up! In my other secrets, I mentioned that a Heart Rate Monitor is very beneficial. After tracking my food for the day, I take my total calorie consumption and subtract the amount of calories I burned from working out. This has really helped me drop a couple pounds a week!

    I love that gum too! I chew 2 at a time and when I am putting 2 pieces in my mouth like 3 times a day, that adds up to 30 calories total! Glad I could help!

    I never even took into consideration the 5+ sticks of gum a day I was chomping on since I quit smoking in August. Thank You!!
