So, MB and I have decided to be losers together. We've kinda always been supporting each other, but have never really been doing one plan together. He did a little research and decided that we should try counting calories together.
I know. It's such a wild and crazy concept!
Today is Day One of the Total Lean Program from GNC. It's not some radical, unhealthy thing. It's just a way for us to count calories with some structure. That's what we need. When left to our own devices, we tend to be...well, fat.
Day One has been pretty good. I had a mini-meltdown this morning because my brain is crazy. I've been doing points for so long, that my literal little brain couldn't wrap itself around the concept of counting calories instead.
MB is super patient with my insanity and he found a great website where I can look up calories for stuff. After our little brainstorming session about what to eat and what not to eat, I feel much better.
So, here we go with the calorie counting!
Do you have any insights for me? I know a lot of you count calories instead of counting points and stuff. How does it work for you?
