I recently joined Fly Lady (http://www.flylady.net/d/getting-started/31-beginner-babysteps/) hoping to get more organized and motivated to get the house cleaner. Fly Lady sends motivational e-mails with manageable steps to help people get their house clean and organized. I like her advice because it's free, practical, easy to handle and highly motivating. (every post ends with
"You are not behind! I don't want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?
Perfectionism is Shelved in 2012!"
I also joined My Fitness Pal http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ which is a free weight monitoring program. I like it because it has a calorie counter that has a huge database of all sorts of food already entered -I can find my grocery store's generic brand, food from chain restaurants, and even create my own recipes. It not only calculates calories, carbs, fat and protein for everything, it takes into consideration how much you're exercised, and calculates and tracks what you need to achieve the weight goals I established. It also allows me to connect with other friends in the group (including my sister).
Recently I was showing Hubby how it worked and I entered the 6 1/2 hours of scuba diving he'd done that day. He burned something like 5000 calories! My Fitness Pals were really impressed with me and sent me encouraging messages! I had to explain that I'd removed it later and it wasn't me. :<)
