I have been successfully tracking all week. Of course, it is only Monday, but, still, I am on a roll and building consistency. It really isn't so difficult...as long as I am home. It is when I go out that I have a problem, and I am going out tomorrow night and i really don't want to break this streak I have going.
When I am planning on going out, I give some thought to what I will be having and come up with a plan of sorts. I don't usually write it down, and i don't stick to it. I think that may not be coincidence...
I tell myself I do this because I can't figure out exactly how to track my eating choices, so why bother even trying. However, if I want to be honest (and right now I do), I have to admit that not even trying to track is just an excuse for eating whatever I want. That going-out-attitude really isn't working for me anymore, and it isn't getting the results I want.
This time I am going to do things a little differently. I have tagged some SP resources I am going to be reading In anticipation of going out with friends to an Italian restaurant tomorrow night - including one SP article ( www.sparkpeople.com/reso
) on how to handle it, as well as some other resources noted on one of the SP threads that I think will be especially helpful.
Before I go to bed tonight, I am going to figure out what I will be ordering, put it in my tracker, and make whatever adjustments I need to in order to stay within my calorie range. It is not rocket science. I can do this!
Tomorrow's blog will outline my plan and Wednesday's blog will be how it all worked out. Looks like I have my own little trilogy going on!
