Tracking my stuff

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

For the last week I have not tracked anything. I was tracking EVERYTHING, but this last week nothing at all. So I decided that I must track it all again. My reasons (not that you all need them, I just need to remind myself) are:

1)To make sure I am within my calorie range.
2)To make sure I am burning enough calories.
3)To see where I can improve in my meal planning.
4)To make sure I am eating enough of the right foods (enough veggies for instance).
5)To keep me focused and accountable.

Fortunately I have had to figure it out in my head still (although my head and the reality may not always be the same) because of my Buddy Challenge. But I really need to just lay it all out again each day. That is one of the good things with this site. I have the ability to lay it out and track it all. I would be dumb to not use it all the time.

So there we have it. Back to tracking.

On a side note, I am still pretty sick. I am going to the dr tomorrow. I am now dealing with an earache, sore throat, swollen tongue and jaw, pain in my stomach, and my newest thing...heartburn in the middle of the night. I think each day that I have avoided this illness has lead me to a new symptom. I also have this red patch on my tongue. I was reading some stuff online and I think one thing that may come up tomorrow is a vitamin b deficiency. I seem to have all the symptoms of that. And I am pretty sure that I have an ear infection or infection in my throat causing the earache. Anyway, wish me luck tomorrow.

    Hope you start to feel better very soon! I'm still getting to grips with planning and tracking my calorie intake - but I hope that it gets easier the more you do it - one day it will be second nature!! We can do it!

    I hope the doctor can get you feeling better soon.

I have to use the tracker too as I can't estimate my calorie intake very well.
