Getting organized with fitness goals

Well, today I put extra thought and patience into my gorcery list. I bought a special cookbook with healthy recipies, that aren't too time consuming and don't have strange, hard to find ingredients (a pitfall in the past).

I also got a notebook to journal in. I'd like to keep better track of what I'm eating. I will also mark down when I exercise and for how long.

Does anyone have any other ideas/suggestions that have helped them?

Thanks!

Well doing good today, so just hope I can keep it up, Got to make myself determined to lose weight and do the exercises. Starting slow on exercises since I haven't done any in a long time

Well, my journal was a big help. I started writing everything I eat and when, how many calories, when I exercise, etc.

My big problem time is from when I get home until dinner is ready. I seem to want to eat everything in sight!!!! And, if I'm in the kitchen fixing dinner . . .

So, today I fixed dinner in the slow cooker - it was ready 1/2 hour after i got home. I spent that time doing yoga nidra, away from the kitchen Smile

I stared a food tracking journal and i have to say that I didn't realize just how much I was eating! All those little between meal snacks really add up over a days time. This is going to be a great motivational tool for me. Thanks for the great idea!

Yeah, I used that for a few months or so one time. It is definitely an eye opener!
