Life Gets Busy & Not Tracking Food

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

After sixteen days of writing down every single morsel of food that I consumed & staying on my plan, on day seventeen, I simply got tired of all the "work", figuring out the balance of carbs vs. protein, fiber and calories, so I started just eating what I thought was good for me and just wrote down the calories at the end of the day. Well, that set off an eating frenzy, and I really messed up the past three days. But, I'm forgiving myself, encouraging myself and getting back on track today. I'd love to hear from those of you who feel that writing down (or tracking everything in the computer) all your nutritional information is simply too much work and takes too much time.

    I am with you, that logging every bite seems like a lot of work. I know that when I don't log my food, I eat too much because my scales let me know! I can spend that time playing games and I don't mind it, but somehow doing what is helpful feels like a chore. Spark points and team blogs help, but I still fall into the rut of avoiding the things that help the most.

    That sounds familiar. Sometimes it's a real chore. But it does make a difference.

    sometimes i feel that way, too, but it's the only way i can stay "honest" with myself. I just try to treat it like it's a project at work or something. If your boss asked you to do it, you'd do it, right, you'd have no choice. I just try to keep my "eye on the prize" so to speak and not think about the chore but the end result. Good luck.
