Do you know? Could you pick the right amount out of a lineup?
Ok, friends. I know Fab find Friday is usually some cute or awesome piece of workout gear, but today is a little different. It’s a Fab find of a different variety.
We talked about how important it is to log your food. I’m still loving MyFitnessPal.com, and have even gotten my darling hubby on board (as long as I log most of his food for him, haha). It’s been very successful for him, though, netting a loss just since he started logging of over 5 pounds! I’m telling y’all, logging your food is the best thing you can do to meet your weight loss goals.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting you starve yourself, and stop eating foods that taste good. My husband actually asked me the other day if “ALL this food” was for one day when he saw his daily caloric allowance perched neatly on one shelf in the fridge.
You don’t have to go hungry to eat well.
You DO, however, have to know what you’re putting into your body.
That’s where this little gem comes in:
I reminded you before that if you don’t log what you eat honestly, then you won’t see results. In the same vein, if you have no idea what a portion looks like, you also won’t see results. That’s frustrating. If you’re going to go to all the trouble of logging your food and caloric intake, you should at least be doing it accurately.
Go out and get yourself a food scale. I’ve been using this one from OXO for years now, and I really like it. It’s simple to use, always spot on accurate, and allows me to zero the scale even with a heavy bowl on it, so I don’t always have to get the scale dirty and wash it all the time.
It’s one of the best appliances you can keep in your kitchen, and it’s this Friday’s Fab Find.
Go get CrazyFit, Mama!
p.s. I’ve learned that Amazon will give a *small* portion of sales generated from my referrals (by clicking on the link above to the product) back to this CrazyFitMama. I shop Amazon.com all-the-time, and have never had anything but great service from them. All the recommendations are ones I’d make anyway, I promise you that. They don’t even recommend things for me to share with you, it’s just that they sell e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! (well, almost everything. Why don’t you sell more Nike gear, Amazon?) It doesn’t affect your purchase price, but it does help me buy new workout gear? Cool? Cool!
