Alert! Blog Detour Ahead

Hi everyone!

I know, I've not been consistent with blogging and I've finally come to a realization.  I have let my health and weight issues get too far out of control and it is affecting all parts of my life.  I have no energy, no motivation, just want to sit on my bottom when I am not at work.

I know, I've been out of shape for years but a couple of weeks ago, my daughter and I walked the Cotton Row 5K here in Huntsville, and I came in nearly last and it seriously felt like I was dying.  Apparently, this was the brickwall I had to hit to drive home how urgent it was to make some life changes.

So, that being said, this past Saturday, I embarked on a new way of eating and am trying to add in at least 30 minutes of exercise a minimum of 3 times a week.  I'm not doing any special diet - I've done weight watchers and low carb plans in the past.  This time, I'm just tracking every morsel I put into my mouth and trying to make healthier choices.

Since Saturday, I am down 6.4 pounds.  I have  A LONG way to go - but I will take it one pound at a time.

So, going forward, this blog will have a lot of weight loss related posts - maybe some of the recipes and information will help someone else out.  And, as I make progress, hopefully I will start papercrafting again and have things to share on that front.

The first thing I want to share is the website/app that I am using.  I had purchased a similar software years ago but it could only be used on one computer and I just kind of let it go.  Now I am using My Fitness Pal - I use the website on my computer and the app on my cell phone.  I love the convenience of being able to track while on the go - and with the cell phone app, you can even scan bar codes to enter your foods!  Check it out here: My Fitness Pal

That's it for tonight - will have more tomorrow!  Thanks for your continued support!
