Counting

After getting married something changed...my wieght. I blame it on the fact that before getting married jacob and I had about six sessions with a personal trainer and lost wieght. After the honeymoon I put on the wieght I lost and then some.  Growing up I never really had to worry about my wieght, i had a fast metobolism and took it for granted. Now I am realizing that what I shove into my face actually does matter.

So you are probably thinking, so what, go out and exercise.  I know I should but I lack motivation. Even with a gym just 6 floors below me I can't seem to walk to the elevator ( I don't even need to walk down stairs) cross the lobby and enter the nice, free gym. WHAT"S WRONG WITH ME!?!?!

Well, I am proud to say that I might have found the motivation I need (besides my clothes all getting tighter).  It's an online program that counts calories for you. Not only does it count the calories you eat but it also counts the claories you burn! You enter you info, like wieght and different body measurements, and then keep a dialy journal of what you eat and do. There is also a tool that will calculate how many calories a person should consume at a particular height, age, and weight in order to maintain, lose, or gain pounds. 

Right now I haven't changed my eating habits. I want to see what I usually consume and set a realistic calorie amount. If you want to be super nit picky they have activities like doing laundry, carrying a child, and sleeping so you can really know how much you are burning. I am hoping that seeing how much I consume to how much I burn will get me to make that trip to the gym!

Oh yeah here's the website

Sign-up is free but they might sent you junk mail so make a fake e-mail and give them that adress.
