Livestrong


Hey gang! Hope you’re all doing well on this blustery fallish day. I’ve got soup on the stove and a fire going downstairs and am currently curled up with a blankie. I love fall. I love the change in the leaves outside, the variance of produce (especially pumpkin!!) and holidays that come with this change in season.

As we drift into the days of endless candy bowls, pumpkin pie and caramel apples, it can be easy to over indulge in these spicy treats. Everyone’s munching away and before you know it, the jeans you wore in September now are too snug only weeks into October! I have a tool that I hope will help usher in some accountability and tips to survive the deluge of delectable treats headed your way.

Livestrong.com is a site hosted by Lance Armstrong (thus the name). It offers everything a weight/health conscious person could want: an oline food journal with calorie recommendations and nutritional guidelines, a community of people on the same journey for accountability, weigh in and measurement options, exercise ideas, recipes galore! The fun never ends!! I think having an online food journal can be one of the best tools available to you: it’s free, it has food with brand names (even restaurants!), gives you daily/weekly/monthly totals and allows you the option of sharing for that added accountability. One of the things that makes Weight Watchers so successful it that they have you keep a very detailed food journal. That way you see how many calories you consume and what kind of food you’re putting into your body. You can track exercises and activities done too.

So give it a whirl! It’s free to join (unless you want the Gold edition) and is easy to use. See you there!
