I'm currently going lighter on the exercise, to have a break and also to let my back heal properly before jumping back into working out. I always find it easier to lose weight when not exercising so much because I'm not hungry all the time. On the other hand not exercising also means I can't eat as much as I'm used to, so time to really watch what I eat!
Technology to the rescue. Instead of old pen and paper planning I decided to go with an app. I always lose my paper plans and shopping lists. I got Pepper Plate (free) which lets me import receipes, plan meals and make a shopping list on line or on my iPad.
I like that I can use the iPad as my cookbook when I'm cooking, it's not just a glorified social media source.
Last night I made some crunchy zucchini with chickpeas and other good stuff. It was fun to make something new and nice to remember that I actually like to cook. So far so good.
