Time to get for real

As you may know, I have a love-hate relationship with My Fitness Pal.  I love it because it just works.  Tracking everything that I eat and all my exercise makes me live in reality.  Weight loss is not rocket science.  All you have to do is burn more than you eat. 

Simple, right?  Ha!  We all know that it’s the mental aspect that’s the tough part.  

Summertime is always fun and busy (and just a little stressful), but I always seem to put on a few pounds because I’m too busy to track my calories.  I have been weighing in, however, and I keep watching the number slowly climb ever upward. 

SOOO, it’s time to bite the bullet and start tracking all those little calories that add into pounds again.  I would really rather not, but I have proven to myself over and over that I can’t maintain my weight without tracking my calories.  ::sigh:: 

What about you? Are you able to maintain or lose without tracking?

BTW, I’m on week 3 of Hal Higdon’s 18 week marathon training schedule. Anyone else running White Rock this December??

Look who found his way onto the kitchen table while I was blogging…



  1. Off topic reply--I always buy lots and lots of markers when they go on school supply sale in August for 97 cents each instead of 2.98. I made the haul of markers home from Walmart and had not yet put them away. Sammuel found the markers and promptly got two boxes for himself and one for Levi. Then he asked "Mimi can I have a grocery bag." Now if you can't ask your Mimi to bag up your loot then who can you ask.
    So good to see Levi has made good use of the markers, coloring his right foot, right knee and the edges of his bright smile. That boy is such a cutie, love him. Mimi

  2. I weigh less than I did in high school... Thats all I got.. - Adam

    Thanks for the motivation Annie ;)
