Remember this line: “I am never going to count calories again!”
I’ve started Monday watching my food intake again. I follow a meal plan and don’t really have to count calories but I have been thinking to do it for a while again just out of curiosity.
I’ve been looking on the internet for websites with calorie counting programs which I could use on my Blackberry too. But the Dutch websites don’t have apps for it (at least not for Blackberry) and the foreign sites usually only have American products to choose from.
Today I read on Renée’s blog that she joined My Fitness Pal and I checked it out and it’s great because it has an app for the Blackberry and (more important) lots and lots of Dutch food and products in the database.
And I’ve joined it. It will be much easier for me to track my food when I can use my phone for it. I’m not going to be very strict, I estimate a bit what I’ve eaten. For me it’s about the big picture and to have a global calculation of my calorie intake for the day and how much fat and protein I’ve used.
No idea how long I will do this, if I like it I might use it for a while. But I will give it at least one week to try it. The moral of this story: never say never. LOL
I am happy to say that this morning I had a great run. It has been a while and it felt so good. I actually looked forward to my run of this morning yesterday evening. The weather was perfect, a bit chilly and a bit of fog (only on the ground which gave an amazing view). I saw the sun rise and met some rabbits along the way whom I scared because they didn’t expect to see a human at that time of day LOL. I just enjoyed the beautiful morning and didn’t run for time or distance. This is why I run, a run where everything goes smoothly and I can enjoy the things around me. Is it too early to say: I’M BACK!
