I fell off tracking my food/eating over my long weekend. (I took vacation Thurs/Fri and took a weekend getaway with a friend Fri-Sun.) If I'm not going to log my food online, I should at least try to jot down what I've eaten to maintain a mindfulness of it. Would it work when I'm in vacation mode??? Hmmm.

I logged my food today. I'm not back in the groove yet, but I've got to try. I read a blog on another site where someone whined like I do about what a PITA it is to track eating online. I commented that I agreed, but I hope that eventually getting a good list of "favorites" and meals/groups would make it less so. Just takes an investment of time.

Formal exercise has been lacking lately. I'm not surprised at all by the way it goes to the wayside all too easily with all those little things that come up in the evenings and on weekends. That's a lack of self-discipline to which I'm no stranger. It would be wise for me to get back to doing scheduled exercise classes.

On the bright side, my bf has replaced his bicycle and hopefully we will be hitting the bike trails this summer.

    I agree that tracking you food is lot of hassle but it simply works. I loose weight when I track when I stop tracking I donĀ“t!!

    You can do it.
