***This post was from when I had a trainer but got lost in the shuffle. I still do this but don’t send it off to anyone.
It’s a simple equation really….me + trainer = one program….one set of rules to follow. So, why is it so hard to I have given some things a lot of thought as far as what direction I need to move in and how to get to my goals for next year. Based on where my weight is right now it looks like competition will be later than I hoped for.
What I mean by that is simple. I’ve got one plan and there is no way that I will know if that one plan works unless I have complete faith and commitment to that one plan. I keep track of my meals and workouts on a private blog. I take pictures of my meals because keeping track in a journal is just not going to happen with me. Taking a picture from my phone and sending it to my blog is super easy. I keep track of my workouts from my phone while I am doing them so it’s easy enough to copy and paste that info in my blog. I share my blog updates with my trainer by doing a simple “copy and paste” into an email to him…simple hu?
Here is an example of what I would do on that blog:
4oz fish and 4oz veggies
10 min stairs and 30 min hill interval on treadmill
4oz fish 4oz veggies

I don’t share my foods all the time because I do not think sharing my plans with you will help you reach your personal goals. I am sure they are different from what my goals may be….and I’m still trying to learn what works best for me.
How do you keep track of your food and exercise?
Do you have the same fears of being judged for the foods you eat?
Oh, one other thing…what are your favorite cell phone health/fitness apps? I want to compile a list.
