I have been using My Fitness Pal and endeavoring to be faithful to plot my calorie and exercise intake because I have a several friends that use this app and it is very encouraging to know that others will be looking at what you have done and will be doing the same as well.
My Fitness Pal is a free program that you can utilize on your computer or your phone (or both!). I use it on my phone because I love the feature of being able to scan barcodes! Even produce has barcodes these days!
I love that there is an exercise option that allows you to track the amount of time you carried an infant over 15 lbs. I will definitely count that! And it is a win-win as I am more prone to wear Boaz when out knowing that that can count as my exercise for the day.
If you would like to be my "friend" on My Fitness Pal so we can motivate each other, my username is: dawnini
I had a wonderful weigh in this morning...159.6 pounds! I am out of the 160s!
My quiet time this morning was about body image and helping our daughters as well as ourselves go about this in God's way. One of my favorite verses, "I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14 For me...this became something I had to work through during my infertility issues. I still was fearfully and wonderfully made and I learned to praise God through that. Easy? No.
I just want to encourage you while good to want to get in shape and eat healthful foods it is important to not get too caught up in it and get sidetracked as to why being healthy is important. And we MUST model right thinking for our girls. Any pointers?
