My Fitness Pal & Dance Fitness by Jessica

My journey to lose this weight has begun.  I don't consider myself overweight, but I just don't feel comfortable in my skin.  I have been doing so many diets over the years trying to find the most optimal program that fit with my job as a teacher.  I always come up with the excuses that include "I just don't have the time" or "I'm exhausted from working all day".  Well, enough is enough.  No more excuses.  It's time to focus on me.

I came across My Fitness Pal through Rachelle's (What the Teacher Wants) success story.  Go and read it now!!!  I started really diving into the food journaling the past 3 days and I already feel a difference in the energy I have.  My goal is to journal everyday and do at least 20-30 minutes of aerobics with some strength training.  I've lost 1 pound so far and am pretty proud of that.  My goal is to lose at least 20 and anything past that will be icing on the cake.

Go ahead and check out MyFitnessPal!  I like it because it reminds me of weight watchers, but it is FREE!  There is also an app for your phone so when you are eating out you can get a calorie count on a variety of meals from restaurants.

If you join, I'd love to be fitness pals with you so don't forget to add me.  I'll be back weekly to give you updates.

Also, be sure to check out Dance Fitness by Jessica on Facebook.  She is amazing!  I love doing these dances just to get my heart rate up.

Here's to a healthy and happy week!
