Feeling back in control

Yesterday was a really good day of rest and eating right. Today I feel fabulous. I feel back in control and not like food is ruling my life. We will probably be going out to breakfast this morning - our usual Sunday routine - and I just have to be careful about what I eat there. The rest of the day will be great I am sure.

I am always looking for a good food journal to use. I will use either a paper one or an electronic one, it doesn't matter as long as it has what I want. One of the things that I have had a lot of problems with is the fact that I live in Hawaii. We have some unique foods that you don't find everywhere. Since most electronic journals don't have Hawaiian type food it would become a guessing game. I would have to find something that seemed to be pretty close and guestimate the amount of calories and nutrients. This would generally piss me off and I'd stop using it. Then a few weeks ago someone somewhere suggested an app for my droid called Fat Secret. I downloaded it and one of the things I absolutely loved about it was that you could scan barcodes and get all the nutritional info. Awesome!!!! Then I realized they had a website you could also use and that would sync with your phone. I used it yesterday and one of the really cool things I've noticed is they have Hawaiian food. Not only that they have local chains like L&L BBQ!!! I was shocked. Every food I type in they come up with some kind of match for. It is awesome. Even if you don't have a droid the website is very good. If you are looking for a good online food journal check them out.
