online Diet & Exercise trackers...

Recommended Posts

In lieu of Season2 of BDW BL starting tomorrow, I wanted to post some sites you can use to track your nutrition and fitness.

 

Here are some tips:

  • buy a little mini notebook (like one of those 2"x3" from CVS and throw it in your purse, when you are not at the PC, jot down what you eat so you can fill it in later.
  • track EVERYTHING you eat, it will take a little bit of time for the 1st week or 2 but you will be surprised at where empty calories come from and learn a lot about your nutrition.
  • make sure to track your exercise / activity b/c that changes how many calories you should eat everyday
  • lastly, if you have a 'bad' day, like eat candy or too many glasses of wine, track that too b/c you will realize it is not as bad as you think, also, when you pull reports you can start to see a trend like "oh, that is the week i was PMS'ing that i ate 4000calories worth of nachos" smile120.gif

Free Calorie Counter, Diet & Exercise Journal - MyFitnessPal.com (FREE)

I just recently found this one, I think this is the best one out there, super easy to navigate and fast! And, this one has the most comprehensive database of food of any that I have used.

 

Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople (FREE)

I like this one but it takes a while to figure it out and every time you want to track something, you have to open a new window - it really gets cumbersome.

 

My Food Diary :: Online Calorie Counter w/ Diet Journal & Exercise Log ($9 per month - no contract)

this one is really good but with myfitnesspal.com being free, what's the point?

 

Welcome to WeightWatchers.com (not sure how much just the online is)

this is really geared for the WW diets but if you are doing them, i would stick with this.

 

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!popcorn.gif (hhhmm maybe i shouldn't have used the popcorn chomping smiley but it is air-popped, no-salt, no butter) lol

Hey guys,

 

For those of you that eat lunch at Blimpie's I just want to let you know that the nutritional value chart is not in stores or on their website. I sent an email requesting them to send me a copy of the chart and the email was bounced back to me. If you are keeping track of your calories and food intake then Blimpie's is not the way to go (even though I love their food). Subway however is not afraid to show details and I may just starting eating there more frequently then blimpie's.

 

Just some FYI!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
