Tired of Counting Calories!

I am so tired of counting calories and not getting anywhere. I am not motivated to exercise and I will do it every other day for about a week and then I give up.

I punch in my calories into the little app on my phone...but then I run into problems where I eat something that is hard for me to figure out the calories. Like home made macaroni and cheese.

Or a tuna and mayo sandwich that I made myself.

I am also terrified of becoming diabetic so I have decided to try to eat like a diabetic to help prevent going down that road.

This entails making a few easy changes like just using less sweet stuff. I have already started by NOT buying ice cream and cookies and eating more fruits and vegetables.

It also entails making a few hard changes like actually sticking to my exercise plan. It really should not be THIS hard to walk on a treadmill for 20 minutes every other day....ESPECIALLY when the treadmill is right across the street from my apartment.

This new plan means I just eat better....I know what I need to eat, I just don't do it. So no more counting calories because I find that too restricting and I just don't want to keep up with it.

Here's to a healthier me!!!!
