A few people have been asking me about my colour coded system ive got it written up in a nutshell on one of the sidebars but here is the loooooong version...

Well... my 'colour coded system' started out as a place for me to document my calorie intake and out put through exercise like most sparkers. I got sick of rifling back through a notebook so i began printing monthly calanders off MSword. After a few weeks of recording my calories in/ exercise in minutes and calories and weekly weigh ins on my calander i began to notice patterns...Because everything was laid out to me i could see that on weeks i went over calories 3 times for example i didnt lose... Then i had an idea to make it even easier to see patterns and that is where the colours come in... I gave myself a set of guidelines and coloured each day accordingly... Green for days i am within calorie range AND do some exercise, Blue for days within calorie range without exercise (rest days), orange for days over calories (but under 2200) AND exercised (perhaps treat days like a birthday party where you go over calories but make sure you get a workout in to hopefully balance it), Red for days over calories but under 2200 without exercise, and black for days over 2200 cals.

Colour coding my calander makes it instantly clear whether i should be expecting a loss, a maintenence or a gain at the end of the week. I keep my calander taped up in the kitchen because if you want to mindlesly snack you see that first and it plants the seed of 'do i really want this' in my mind.

I can also refer back to my old calanders and form patterns and learn things about myself that i may not have noticed otherwise (like i almost always exercise on friday, almost never on tuesday - i dont plan my workouts they are spontaneous) and perhaps if i register an extra big loss one week i can look and see 'oh 6 greens this week equalled one kg lost but 4 greens usually only equals 0.5kg lost' and so on.

Hey gorgeous!

Well it looks like we will be encouraging one another along over the next few months...

I could feel bad and guilty, but what does that achieve? To the thinner us's!
