I am really loving the website http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ . It is so simple to use and has been way easy to track my food intake and exercise. I am pretty proud of myself for following through with both the walking and the tracking. However, this still does not touch the biggest accomplishment I have had this week; I have yet to eat red meat.
Research shows that being overweight is a red flag for Cancer. So is a diet high in red meat. I am actively addressing both of these. I have no intent to give up red meat (as I am typing this, a steak sounds so good!) but I do plan to minimize by consumption of it. I have made some good choices here this week: I opted for ricotta cheese instead of meatballs in my pasta. I opted for a turkey burger instead of a hamburger.
I am weighing in on Monday, and I will let let you all know how I did on the scale this week.
