Saddling up yet again….

So I did it today. I bit the bullet and signed up for Round 2 of 12wbt.  It is really cool to know that I have only got 9kg to go until I reach my goal and I really do feel that this program is the best way for me to get there. I have, over the course of the afternoon read through and committed to 6 warm up challenges and even downloaded the Calorie King app to my Ipad.  This is so that I can complete the food diary challenge, something that I freely admit I suck at.  Somehow, the glass of wine and the occasional sneaky after dinner snack at night tends not to make it into the diary….funny how that happens, like it doesn’t count if the computer has been switched off for the night.

BTW, for those who are interested, the app costs $4.49 and does not require membership.  It is  a food diary, calorie counter and weight logger like the Calorie King website and you don’t need internet connection to use it.  I did know there was an app for  Calorie King but not having owned an Ipad until 3 weeks ago (I bought it to use with the kids at school) I hadn’t checked it out. I had at first downloaded the 12wbt app, but it does not have a calorie counter included, it is just a food diary and weight logger.  I needed to download the free calorie counting app from Calorie King to work out my caloriesand switch between the two apps, so this paid version of Calorie King made more sense for me.  I could see myself getting over the back and forth thing real quick. Another handy feature is that you can create your own recipes and save them and it will calculate the calorie per serve for you.  This means that for meals you have regularly you don’t have to enter the ingredients every time, you just select the recipe.  It can be set for calories or kilojuries, kilos or pounds and Australian or US foods so it is very functional for many people.  Worth a look if you want something to keep you honest with your food and your weight loss.  Anyway, the journey continues…..
