So you may think that I've fallen off the face of the earth, but I haven't at all :) I just took a very long Christmas break. And I had house guests galore during this time and didn't want my dad peering over my shoulder asking all about this blog I'm writing.
SO, here I am, just a wee bit heavier than my status bar shows, but stronger than ever, eating healthfully and Wii-ing (Wii Active) my way back to my former low. I have a new toy in my arsenal, and I LOVE it. It's my favorite weight loss gadget so far, and on this long and often painful road, every little thing helps, right?
I received an iPod Touch for Christmas. It's much like the iPhone, but without the cell service (and the whopping fees that come along with it). I can browse via WiFi in my home, and around town at various hot spots. One of the many joys of this little computer gizmo is an Application (can't say, "App" because that word annoys the heck out of me) called Tap and Track. For a couple of bucks, I now own a walking food, exercise, and weight tracker with thousands of foods from home and restaurants stored in the memory. I don't have to be connected to the internet to use it, so it's always available, and I must say, it's been awesome to use. I used to track with Weight Watchers online, but I couldn't stand paying the monthly fee, and when I went out, I had to remember everything in my head to track when I got home. Forget travelling.
Now, my iPod goes everywhere I do, and so does my tracker. And no one looks at me funny as I enter my food. For all they know, I'm checking email!!
Although the month of December was tough food-wise, things have been going very well lately, and I'm as determined as ever. I changed my new goal to 170, just so I have something shorter term to look forward to. Hopefully I'll be back here before then!
