Checking In With the #TEMT!

Hello Joan and the rest of the gang at #Temt.  It has been a long time since we connected via posts.  I still like catching the occasional tweet that reminds me we are connected.

Since last September, I have been using MyFitnessPal as my primary motivation.  In case you are not familiar with the site, you record all your calories in and calories out through your own personal account.  You can see what your foods cost you and what different activities credit you.  That has been really helpful for me - the accountability.

I have not made record progress in the weight loss area and I am often scratching my head about it but I think the tool is solid.  The best part is I am aware of what I am doing each and every day.  There isn't anything new about this approach to wellness but it has been good for me and I know I get a lot more exercise in my life because of it.  I am healthier and that has always been my one true goal.

I look forward to hearing how other folks are doing and what is working or not working for you.

This is me 13 months ago & 25 lbs heavier.

Let's go #Temt!

Some of the fabulous folks who tweet with #temt! Yay, we got to walk with Jerry at ISTE12!

I can't believe it's been nearly a year since a post has graced this blog, and yet I also can believe it. We all get so busy, but hopefully we have found ways to keep up the commitment we made to our health, whenever that was! And if this post hits you in a lull or a "fall off the wagon" moment, maybe it's a sign to devote some care to your health.

I know that the #temt tweets from others remind me to "move it" and the replies I get when I post motivate and affirm my own inner desire to be the healthiest self I can be. Thank you to all who use the hashtag that stands for "Twitter Exercise Motivation Team."

So, here's what I would love to know! If you are one of the original blog members who posted here, I would love to see a post from you, updating us all on how your quest for health has been going.  And, I would really like to know if there are any others out there willing to guest post on here occasionally, and by that I mean with whatever regularity you choose!

It would be wonderful to renew this blog and continue together on our journeys to our best healthy selves. Are you in?
