I too have noticed the quiet that's settled around here these days. It's that time of the year when we're not quite busy but so used to being so we don't know what to do with ourselves!
That's how I feel anyway. =)
I would like to share a quick resource with you that my roommate and I happened upon a couple of weeks ago. I apologize if this has been shared here already!
Meet Calorie Count.
For those of you who aren't in to counting calories - that's okay!
This site has so many other resources to put at your fingertips! There is a PLETHORA of recopies, a forum, blogs, an activity log, and a chart that tracks your weight - very, very helpful.
Even if you don't do the calorie count thing, this site is great for telling you how well
you're eating, too. Most of the foods in their database come with a grade (A-D), and you can add foods to your log on your own. As long as you know the weight of the serving you ate (and most nutrition labels have this), it'll be able to grade your foods for you.
This is a fantastic site! And it's very
good at making sure you lose weight at a safe
rate. If you're looking for some motivation to keep on track - here it is!
Oh, right, the best part: It's totally free. =)
