Happy New Year!
In my attempt to get back to a healthy eating pattern like many of us do as a New Year's Resolution, I have been tracking the foods that I eat for a couple of days! My designated notebook has a designated place on my cluttered countertop. I have learned already that I am not going to starve if I skip a snack that I think I 'need'.
@dsisko, @grillgirl, @retiredteacher, @contentandwell, How about you? What is your take-away from the healthy eating link that Carol has shared? https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/in-depth/healthy-holiday-habits-how-to-get-back-on-track/art-20270846/

I love this idea! I want to take off about 5 pounds. I am going to start a food diary today.

I walk daily on a treadmill at a nearby gym for my cardio.
I also, just found out my library is doing free Tai Chi on Wednesdays. I intend to sign up for these classes to help me with my balance.

I am very surprised that I gained this extra weight. I blame the holidays.

@rosemarya the article is very good. It’s good to be reminded of what we need to do so we can commit to it. For me it helps if I can envision a goal. Right now mine is for my clothes to fit more comfortably!

@grillgirl. There’s an excellent, free tool online to track your food. It’s MyFitnessPal.com. I used it and found it very helpful. If you get yourself committed you know you are only cheating yourself if you don’t put EVERYTHING down. I plan to resume using it once again. I’ve gained 6 - 8 pounds, and would to lose that and 5 - 10 more.
