Couldn't Be Easier

With a new year beginning, everyone is always so focused on getting healthy. It's so easy to slip off of the track and get up to your old tricks without some kind of accountability. Enter My Fitness Pal.
This app is AmAzInG! Not only does it calculate your calories for you, but it also allows you to be linked with your friends so they can help you and cheer you on.  The thing that I loved the most about online Weight Watchers was the phone app that allowed you to easily enter in what you have eaten and what you did to work out. This is everything I love from that, but even better, it is FREE!

You weigh yourself, enter in your goal, and it sets your daily caloric intake all for you. Once you lose ten pounds, it adjusts itself and asks if you want to lower your calorie count to continue your awesome weight loss.

I was just about to enter my breakfast from this morning and thought you might want to join me! :)

The app keeps a record of things that you have entered in the past so it is super easy to pick out what you ate. Don't see what you want to add? Just search for the food and 97% of the time what you are looking for will pop up and be accurate.

Are any of you on My Fitness Pal? I would love more friends if you are! My username is chubby_bride (haha!).  Find meeeee!

P.S. I am not getting paid by anyone to endorse My Fitness Pal, I just dig it.

News and a Promise

I'm home sick today so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to update the little ole blog here since she's been so neglected.

I got engaged on New Year's Day! Amid the engagement blissful "honeymoon stage", I am starting to feel the pressures of wedding planning weighing down on my shoulders. I feel like already my mind is pulled in so many directions, not because of anyone or anything, but mostly because I am having such a hard making a decision on what kind of wedding I want to have! I'll post more about that later.

This promise is more for myself, but I have got to blog more. I feel like my teaching has gotten so dull and because of that, I don't want to blog as often. Because I am not blogging, I have no desire to spice up my teaching. It's just a pickle.

Twist on the Site:
Instead of just posting about teaching all the time, I am going to try to post about other parts of my life. Because I got engaged, G and I are both trying to lose some significant weight and get healthy. It is important for both of us to be around for a while together. :) I will be posting some recipes, reviews, and tips every now and then.

Lots of Love,
