I am really struggling to stay committed to living a healthy lifestyle. I keep trying different things to see if I am successful, because the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over again expecting the same result. I decided that I am going to start tracking my food. This week is mostly an experiment to see where I come out. According to SparkPeople (taking into account my goals) I should aim to consume 1200-1600 calories....today it was 18somthing...oops. My intent is to study my consumption this week, learn from it, use my learnings to meal plan in the future. I intend to keep track of my calorie intake for at least the next 59 days.
As far as exercise goes, we had very good weather Saturday, so I took the opportunity to take the dog for a run. I ran/walked over two miles. I need to buckle down to be ready to run the 5Ks I am planning in April. I have been exercising sporadically.
