Some days I feel like the food tracker police...I have become used to whipping out my iphone to find out the caloric content for foods before I eat them, and to calculate how much I am allowed when I'm offered something (usually by my mom). My family has been making a few jokes about it, and at first they didn't want me to be so strict with myself - probably because they didn't want me refusing the food or they didn't want me to talk about the dangers of eating too much of this or that. But I somehow have been able to tune them out and keep doing my thing.
The past week, I incorporated multivitamins back into my diet and found that my intake of proteins, fats, carbs, and calories have been all over the place - I either do enough calories, or not enough protein, or else too much fat! I thought for sure tonight I would break even in all of those, and I found that I was great in everything BUT carbs and fat. I went under by 1 in carbs, and was 20 over in fats. Sigh.
But hey, I can't complain too much, because I bought some raw almonds yesterday, and those have helped with the other nutrients I started tracking last week. The only thing I didn't end up doing was exercising today, because I felt so worn out and ended up steam-burning my thumb :-( So that effectively put an end to my activity for the day. Now it's just about time for bed, and I'm only too happy to conk out tonight...
