Tools of the trade!
Ok, I have been getting the word out to as many people as possible that I am starting this wonderful journey. I have gotten very positive responses, mainly "Wow good for you!" and "That is a really aggressive goal!" Well, yes it is. Why set a goal that is not aggressive, if it were easy the US would not be the heaviest nation in the world. In this digital age there are many tools to help with working out and weight loss. So I will tell you what tools I am using. For tracking my daily activity I am using an iPhone app "Myfitnesspal," also at work we are encouraged to use Virgin healthmiles and we can get health insurance credit for it. The nice thing about myfitnesspal is that it tracks both activity and diet. Speaking of diet I have heard many words of wisdom on what to eat and what to avoid. After doing some research I am still confused, so I will be doing more research and trying parts of a couple of different programs, the basis of which is body for life. If anyone knows anything about cross-fit please let me know. FYI the diet and exercise starts on Oct. 4th and I will be tracking as much as possible. Thank You and may your life be interesting!
