Online Resources

Here are some great sites to track your calories exercises etc. It is great to keep a food diary and to do it online is even cooler!


This site it cool! It has a lot of members and it is set up almost like a myspace where you have friends and encourage each other. It also gives you tasks to do to earn points twords a little icon on your page. Even though it is only an icon it's fun to try to upgrade!


My sister uses this one and loves it! I like that when you put food in your food diary it shows a picture of it!


This is the one I use. I have a fit bit. It is an electronic pedometer that clips onto my bra and counts my steps, calories, miles, etc. I add in the food and exercise. You also where it when you sleep and it tracks when you feel asleep, how many times you woke up etc. super cool! You can track my progress on my facebook when it pops up.

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
