Climbing back on the wagon

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

I'm trying to get back into the habit of tracking my exerise and food online daily. I was keeping a notebook and going in once a week to update stuff. Then once every other week. Then once a month. Before I knew it, I just had this notebook full of info and wasn't losing weight. I had actually started to put some on. YIKES!

I sat down at the computer and started inputting everything. I realized I wasn't being as consistent as I thought with writing stuff down. I guess when you transfer the info daily, you tend to be a bit more thorough. I'm not sure. All I know is that waiting until the weekend to input is NOT a good idea, at least for me.

I'm going to get back into logging everything, hopefully every single day. Sure don't want to slide back down that slippery slope. It took TOO long to lose it. And, of course, I have more I want to lose.

We'll see . . .

    Waiting until the weekend wouldn't work for me either. I'm a teacher and "on vacation" until the first of August. When school starts, I think on the weekends I'm going to plan and prepare my meals/snacks and then input/log that for the week ahead. After the week is over, on the weekend, I'll make any adjustments for what didn't go as planned and then prepare the new plan for the new week ahead. It will take time, but it should be easier than trying to do everything in the evening during the week. Maybe that is a compromise that will work with a busy schedule. I know that if I have planned snacks and meals and know what I'm going to eat, it takes the emotion out of eating. Plus, I prefer this more structured approach rather than "flying by the seat of my pants." I think this will work for me! Good luck on your plans. Go out and make a difference! emoticon
