In the spirit of starting over, for giggles, I decided to enter my food from yesterday into the nutrition tracker here. Let me preface this by saying I know I ate waaaaaaay too much yesterday but...holy bananas...I was not expecting it to add up to just under 3500 calories! E-freaking-gad.

I think Iím going to track my food this week just to get some perspective on what Iím eatingÖI have been recording it in my journal (like Iíve said before, handwriting it seems to keep it in the forefront of my mind better than online tracking), but I think Iíve forgotten what proper portions look like! Yeesh. So for this week, Iím going to do both types of tracking, and hopefully that gets me back into the habit of normal portion sizes (or at least gets my estimates back in line with reality!)

    Good idea! I haven't tracked for the longest time, but I think it would be good for me to start doing it again, just to give myself a refresher on portions and just how easily calories can add up... so I feel ya lady!

    Know the feeling! I actually try to REMEMBER what I've eaten so I can record it later. That doesn't work either. Tracking often during the day helps me, and what I've started to do is to enter what I plan to eat for the entire day, then I can see where I'm heading, what I can add or what I'd better stay away from. I know you'll do better with consistent tracking. It's a pain, but it's worth it.
