Starting over...

Well, I've updated my weight on and decided to start over. One of the things that I loved about WW's was the online food journal. Since I'm not a member, I can't use their site any more, but (which is free) allows me to keep a journal. This site has calorie info which is great, but also carbs and protein info which is very important for the Insulin Resistant Diet. There is a place to keep exercise info too. Here's my day:

I did go over on my calorie count, but I did pretty well on my linking and balancing. What is missing? VEGGIES!!! I know! I need to focus on increasing my fruit and vegetable intake. That takes planning and prep work. So, that is my assignment for myself...more fresh fruits and veggies.

Today was a great day over all. The weather has cooled off and is lovely. My daughter and I decided to have a picnic at our local state park. We had a great time playing on Lake Pontchartrain's beach and walking around the park grounds. I did forget the sunscreen, so both of us are a little pink tonight. Walking in sand is a great way to work out those legs though. It was really lovely. This is what life should be...spending time with family and enjoying the beautiful world God has given us!
