Today is the third day of seriously trying to get my weight back to where it belongs. The first day went fine, but yesterday was not good.
The thing is I know what it takes to lose the weight, but do I really want to do it bad enough to do what it takes. In Joe vs the Volcano Mr. Waturi says, "I know he can get the job, but can he DO the job." Your job is to maintain your proper weight. You got the job, now you need to DO the job.
Getting the exercise in is not a problem for me, discovering the love of biking solved that problem. Keeping the calorie consumption down is a problem. Logging everything I eat into MyFitnessPal helps, but when I get that munchies desire it is hard not to cheat.
I'm working with three apps on my iPod to track my progress, the Health app that is built into iOS 8, MyFitnessPal, and Strava. At first I set MyFitnessPal and Strava to share data through the Health app. Then after my bike ride on the first day I uploaded my ride to Garmin Connect, which automatically transfers the ride to Strava, but for some reason it didn't make it all the way to the MyFitnessPal app. MyFitnessPal has an option to connect directly to other apps, so I found the Strava connection and enabled that. Problem is Strava only sends new ride data to MyFitnessPal. So I ended up having to manually enter the data. After finishing this post I will pack everything up and bike to work. After uploading to Garmin will this data show up in MyFitnessPal?
I just love to ride my bike.
