Tracking Sodium

Friday, July 18, 2008

Our team is tracking our sodium input today and it is really amazing to me the amount of sodium in the food we eat.
I am using my food tracker everyday and I put down everything that I eat or drink.
Today I started adding coffee because I was just putting the milk down.
I also was amazed when I started adding the fish oil that I take twice a day. I never really counted it in my fats and it has ten calories.
The things I am learning by keeping track.


Ate lots today but within my limit

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Well, it takes a long time to write down every thing you eat but already I see that it keeps me from tasting while I am cooking.
Who wants to write down that you tasted everything. When I am not tracking it I don't seem to realize what I am doing.


Starting to Blog

Monday, July 14, 2008

I decided to start writing down some of my thoughts so that I would concentrate more on losing weight. I have been putting my food on my food tracker but I think I am going to write them in a book too.
I need the actual writing of what I eat. This will be an experiment for the next two weeks. I'll let you know what happens.

  I'll look forward to seeing how you do. Writing helps. I usually check to see if I have calories left before I start snacking after dinner. If not, herbal tea does the trick. Good luck!

    Peggy I to write my food down in a book its a great way of seeing what you eat and I put the time down if its later than 7.00pm with a little mood note by the side ,Then I can see if I am up , down or just hungry and bored it does help. I hope everything goes well for your experiment. emoticonLynn greg

    Peggy, This is a very good idea and makes us more accountable to ourselves. When you write your foods in a book as well, you can really see twice what you have been should just re-enforce what you are doing. I will be waiting to see how it works!! Good luck!
You are a unique, beautiful, and rare individual the one and only you!!!
God bless you as you continue your journey to a healthier you.

Happy Mothers Day Mom

Saturday, May 10, 2008

My mom was the greatest. I have four sisters and my mother taught us well. All of us are friends and when my mother died there was no arguing or anything. Just sharing like she always said.
