My Fitness Pal

I've been using My Fitness Pal to help keep me honest and track things.

First things first, add me: Breella

Second: if you use it to track exercise how do you track your horse chores? I have found some websites that have some numbers but I'm wondering how accurate you guys think they are or if you think you have better numbers.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

I don't track them. I know a lot of people track cleaning, etc... but I really only track exercises that I have done to purposely set out to burn calories (walking, biking, riding, etc) because I figure I have always done the other things.

But then I also don't track veggies unless it is something high in sugar or calories which is not that often at all.

Interesting ideas, thank you for replying. I haven't weighed myself in over a week but since I started tracking my food I've been better about what I'm eating later in the day.

Using myfitnesspal helped me lose 30 pounds :)

I used it religiously for about 5 months and literally put every single thing into the app on my phone as I ate it. water, juice, ONE almond...i mean everything! i would take a 10 minute walk at work...added that. 30 minutes on the treadmill, added that!

it helped me so much to count calories (it gave me 1200/day)...i never realized how many calories were in one glass of cranberry juice or in one slice of pizza. it really made me pick and choose my snacks wisely!
