Ok so this isn’t a baking post I’m afraid (as you will see shortly!). I didn’t manage to get in the kitchen at all this weekend – last week was manic, the weekend was jam-packed and this week is even worse, so much to my dislike I couldn’t whip up any yummy treats this time. Instead I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you about a pretty cool site I found out about recently.
I lost a fair amount of weight a couple of years ago and one of the big things that helped me to do that was using an online tracker site (myfitnesspal was the one I used) to track what I was eating and how much I was exercising. I found it really useful to keep me on track. Recently I found out about a new site called SlimKicker and it looks awesome.
You can record what your eating (including those lovely healthy bakes 😉 ), and by tracking your exercise and logging “healthy” calories you can earn points. You also earn points by completing food related challenges (e.g. giving something up for a week etc). You can also take part in fitness challenges with other members as well. Now this is the bit that appeals to me – I love a challenge and I need things like that to keep me motivated so I’m keen to give that a try 🙂
There are also prizes to be won and you can upload your own images of your goal or the reward you will give yourself for reaching a certain target so you have something to aim for. You can link up with friends and other users as well so you have some support.
I think this site could be a lot of fun and really useful so I’m looking forward to trying it out. Have any of you used it before?
I’ll let you know how I get on…watch this space! 🙂
