My main focus this week is going to be getting in the habit of tracking my calories. I usually get started doing this and fall off the wagon in a few days, and in those few days I usually forget to track once I get home. I also need to track my carbs and try to really curb that. I'm such a carb addict.
I like to use MyFitnessPal.com. I also have the app on my phone. There are other sites that track calories, like Sparkpeople.com but they have so much on that site that I tend to either get distracted and overwelmed. I do like their recipe site, especially for figuring out calories of recipes that I don't already have the calorie count to.
I'll weigh in on Monday at work and probably change that bar up top. I haven't been 285 in a while, thank goodness. I'm probably around 265-270. Obviously I have a lot more than 37lbs to lose, but I figure an easy goal to get me started is the way to go.
I'm also going to try to work on some of my future "focuses" for later weeks, but I won't beat myself up if I slip up. I need to make some time for exercise of some sort, either getting up early (ugh... 4am) or forcing myself to do it in the evening.
I also think I'll get the stuff to make some of these up for dinner during the week:
Since Bill works nights, I really don't like to cook. The girls won't eat most of what I cook, so it seems like when I do that I'm cooking to put stuff straight in the fridge for leftovers. I end up just grazing all night. It's worth a try for a week anyway.
