Hive Mind, I need your help.
Recently I saw myself on film. I know the camera adds pounds. But not 60 or so. To that end, during one of the most stressful times of my life and the beginning of the holiday season I've decided to finally lose weight. I'm now keeping a food diary (which as a diabetic I really should have had one to begin with) to keep track of what I'm eating. I'm trying to walk during lunch and at night (the pouring rain isn't helping). While my cousin suggested CrossFit which seems awesome, yet intimidating it's WAY out of my price range at the moment. I also have sensory sues in large cavernous spaces like gyms (I can't really explain it). So while I'm starting small, I intend to finish this, well not finish it, continue it as a way of life. Food, exercise, taking care of myself.
Ok, here is where I need some expert advice. Does anyone have a rec' of an app or way of keeping track of the food diary and the exercise. I know there are a few new electronic things out there that can help. I am very much a visual learner and am interested in things that can help me track my progress. (other than my scale).
Any suggestions that you have that don't require a large amount of spending would be greatly appreciated. I've been told about Myfitnesspal.com which does seem to have some great ways of tracking my food, I'm not sure about the exercise part and I'm unclear about their apps.
