I kind of like being a rebel. (within reason, of course) My husband happily calls it my "naughty side." I have a friend who says, I have two sides because I am a Gemini. Whatever the reason, I like to have rules and boundaries because I am a very organized, and structured kind of gal. But, then I have to allow myself to "be a rebel" here or there, or I feel like I will suffocate.
So, I love sparkpeople because it is structured, and organized....like me! But, I give my rebellious streak some playtime when I don't count about 50 or so calories a day on my nutrition tracker!! Ooooooooh!! ....I know. For me, it satisfies the part of me that doesn't want to feel too constricted. So, I might eat a few animal crackers...or a couple chocolate covered raisins. And I won't tell anyone! Ha!
I don't over do it. I am still mindful of my rebelliousness, but I feel like giving myself a break, and not counting one small thing in my day...makes me feel like I am more free!
Hey, it works for me!
