This one's apropos to New Years Day as today's the day so many people in the world will be starting in on their New Years Resolutions.  Because of course one of the most common New Years Resolutions?  Losing weight and/or getting healthy.  I have blogged many times about My Fitness Pal, mostly as a website and the success I've found using it.  It's … [Read more...]

Last spring, I had finally had it.  I was still up several pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight and the kicker?  My son was 3 1/2.  Deciding that it wasn't just going to "come off" easily after three and a half years, I joined MyFitnessPal.com at the encouragement of my little sister. From May to September, I lost 15 pounds.  I was probably … [Read more...]

This is one of those reviews I'm writing out of profound thanks and love.  No one pitched me about this website or product.  No PR folks cold called my cell to tell me I have to sign up.  This is a, "I've used this service and it's awesome and I have to tell you about it" post. So it was my sister and family who tuned me into MyFitnessPal.com, … [Read more...]

Yesterday I freaked out when I stepped on the scale.  That was my moment.  The moment I cracked and I realized I had to shape up and that something with my diet and routine has to change. I can pinpoint exactly when my bad eating habits started and say with confidence that it was Easter, which you guys may remember was late this year.  It was at … [Read more...]

Starting today I'm back on MyFitnessPal.com - tracking my calorie intake and exercise routine - which I've been telling everyone about.  It feels good to log back on - like sitting back down with an old friend who makes me feel good about myself. I spent the last few days at the beach with some of my best friends in the world.  It was a great … [Read more...]

In this post, I'm going to focus on the mobile applications available on the Palm Pre Plus. As a seasoned ipod Touch user, I love browsing through iTunes and downloading different apps-- and yes, I do go for the free apps mostly. Palm offers the App Catalog. While it's got some good applications, it could be improved. I did like the many … [Read more...]

As I blog this one, I'm feeling bloated and cross from another dinner of turkey and mashed potatoes leftovers. While I've been working hard to keep up with exercise this week (which hasn't been easy), I have most definitely been eating and drinking more and look forward to the post holiday slow down so I can get back to my routine. For a few years … [Read more...]

I'm really not a big fan of having a specific New Years Resolution.  I used to set them - it would be the same one pretty much through my entire twenties.  Go on a diet, lose weight, exercise.  I mean, come on - sooooo original, right? And of course because I was in my twenties, I'd wake up hungover New Years morning and get discouraged when I … [Read more...]

Happy New Year everyone! I took the last week or so off from blogging to just enjoy some family downtime and it's been blissful. We went down to North Carolina to visit my parents and ended up enjoying some unseasonably warm weather and spent several days on the beach! Heaven. Just enough sunshine to hopefully get me through the next couple of … [Read more...]

Pretty sure that my family knew that my "HOLY SH*T" scream from the bathroom yesterday morning couldn't mean anything good as I stepped on the scale. I shouldn't have been surprised at what I saw though. The same way you lose weight - slowly and by a healthy calorie deficit- I gained weight slowly but eating (& drinking) more. If I'm … [Read more...]
