Workplace making you fat? There's an app for that...
God forbid you have something healthy at one of these meetings!! You do not want to be "that girl" who brings in carrots sticks and makes everyone who is eating a doughnut feel bad!
Trust me....I've been that girl.
Since I have started my new job, 7 months ago, I have gained 7 pounds. I have also utilized this blog to complain about it.....sorry about that!
I promise, my loyal readers, no more fat talk. WHY???? There's an app for that.
IPhone has an app called "lose it". It is a food journal app that lets you put in your goal weight, counts calories, and counts various nutrients such as sodium, fat, carbs, etc. What I like about this app is that it also accounts for calories burned during exercise. It has hundreds of food already programmed in and has everything from store brand food to specific restaurant items. It is very easy to use. I dont' know why I have put off using it for so long....I guess I was hoping for the weight loss fairy to come and magically suck away these 7 pounds without me even realizing it. Well Virgina....there is no Santa Claus. I have got to put on my big girl panties and take care of business myself. No whining, no complaining.
