Track What You Eat!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

So this is now my new motto! I realized I will never lose weight if I don't track what I eat!

You can track what you eat by just simply putting it down in a notebook to using an official food diary.

I track what I eat on MapMyRide this is just one of the MAPMYFITNESS SITES.

I input my food and it tells me exactly how many calories I have consumed, and once I do a workout it will also tell me how many calories I burned.

(and yes I crossed out my weight! Not exactly ready to share that with the whole world Laughing)

They also have a very comprehensive database of food that you can get calorie and nutrition info from.

No matter how you keep track of what you eat, the important thing is that you do!

I thought I had my calories in check until I started documenting them and found out that I was way over what I needed.

So next time you go to sit down to a meal, make sure you plan on writing down what you ate!



About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
