This weeks diet fitness healthy life style journey I feel like things are finally going in the right direction. I am losing and finding the right workout food balance. I would like to say it was my brilliance but it is the fact I am wearing a pedometer and logging my food back to basics. So for weeks I have been saying how I was concerned my body was not loosing because of the calorie intake vs. how much I was working out.
This we it changed, I kept a food log and subtracted it from the activity. How. My awesome friend /walking buddy Hillary has been telling me for weeks about the FitBit and then I won won from Leah at Mamavation. So I started using it. Oh my the gates have opened i was not eating enough. I am a big girl. I need to eat about 2600 calories.. I was eating about 1500. and working out 3500 yea.. not good.
I took the bite-it then write it approach . I tracked everything on Fitbit’s on-line tracker and it told me when I was in the sweet spot for food with the activity I was doing. Water, food, activity so funny it is Technology that is helping me loose weight.
