Resolutions in Motion - Round 2

 


 

I am so excited to be signed up for Round 2 of Resolutions in Motion. The first round, though I did not meet my goal of losing 10lbs it kept me accountable and more aware of what I am eating.

My goal for Round 2 is not losing weight but something I can do that will lead me to losing weight.

Track my food using the Myfitnesspal App. Monday - Saturday.

I am giving myself Sundays off from logging. This is such an attainable goal and I can only blame myself if I don't achieve it.

When I lost the majority of my weight back in 2011, I was logging my food in everyday. It helped me visualize what my food choices cost me in calories. Back then I was on fire, I could have food in the house, eat a serving size and leave it alone. Right now if I have, say goldfish crackers in the house I find myself munching on them throughout the day.

I need to go back to feeling empowered over my weight loss journey and logging my food is a fantastic start. I would like to look and feel a little more 2011 and not 2009, especially when we *hopefully* go to Disney in May.

I will be blogging about my progress each week and if you would like to sign up to join Round 2 of Resolutions in Motion here is the link. It can be any type of resolution, mine just happen to be weight related. I loved having the accountability in Round 1, I hope you will join for Round 2!

I am ready for 2013 to be my healthiest year yet.

  2. You can do it! I have to get the baby weight off but it seems even harder now with a baby. I'm ready for warmer days so I can take Jack for a stroll. Good luck!

  7. you can do it! being accountable of what you eat really helps although I find some things hard like recipes I make, to figure out what's in them to track, you know? I used myfitnesspal when I was dieting earlier this year.

  8. You look fantastic! Keep up the good work. I lost 100 lbs, so I know it's HARD, but I used my fitness pal, too, and counting my calories definitley helped.

  11. Well done - like you I lost the weight and I'm now on a mission (not always successful) to keep it off! Good luck!

  12. I have used MFP as well, and when I use it, it totally works! I love that you aren't using weight as your measure of success. There are so many other things out there that are so much better for health related goals!

  13. Wishing you lots of luck! I didn't meet my goal last round either of drinking more water, less Mt. Dew, healthier living stuff and whatnot. I've been using FitnessPal since last Saturday though and I've found it very interesting how much calories things have and the food that surprisingly has hardly any! I love it =)
