Regardless whether you are just starting out on your weight loss journey or are well on your way, something that I really recommend you do is to take a look at the size of your portions. You’ll also want to log what and when you are eating, plus the exercise that you do each day. Doing something as simple as this will help keep you in check each and every day. I LOVE to use the free site MyFitnessPal to track my food. There are many more sites out there that you can even download an app for your smartphone. so that way, you’ll always have access to your “journal.” I use WOWY to track my exercise daily and it also gives me a shot of putting a little extra cash in my pocket. If you don’t know what WOWY is, you can check it out here.
Since we’ve already entered the holiday season, I know you’ll be tempted with goodies and treats and even pressed for time some days. Little tricks that you can apply while you’re at a party, a friend’s house or even at your very own will help keep you on track. It’s very easy to go over your recommended calories. Believe me when I say it is….that extra stuffed mushroom, glass of wine or piece of pie can all add up. One thing that I’ve done in the past at parties…AND to keep from being noticed that I’m writing in my food journal…is use a mobile application to keep track (again MyFitnessPal has a great one) or I’ve even taken a quick picture of my plate. These are simple little strategies that work and help keep you accountable.
So now that I’ve shared with you some quick, easy tips, tell me…..How do you stay on track?
