{Feeling Relatively Good}

(image found here)

I have been having the worst time this month getting myself on track with healthier eating. I didn't have this much trouble when I was pregnant and it baffles me why I am struggling now. I am working on eating better and have been successful over the past week and a half and I have started eating breakfast every morning.

I haven't really started exercising yet but I am going to get a gym membership w/trainer next month to help get me more motivated & learn some good exercises that I can do on my own. I have been looking around online for gyms in my area and found one that has a free 7 day pass and hope to find some other gyms with passes that will allow me to check them out before committing to them.

I am also using a cool online tool that a friend shared with me, it's called My Fitness Pal and it's FREE. This program helps you track what you eat, how much you exercise and how much weight you have lost/gained. You can add your favorite recipes and it will also tell you how much calories, fat & carbs are in that dish.  I have been using the food tracker since yesterday and it's really helped me to be accountable for what I eat.

I  know this month has been a wash for me and hoping that this next month will really be the start of my new healthy lifestyle.
