Day 14 of food tracking on Spark. One of my Spark buddies pointed out she cooks from scratch and it's time consuming to enter in all the ingredients. This week I am using up food on hand. When I get groceries, I will try to make a point of using Spark recipes as they already have the portions and nutrition recorded, even for common things like steamed veggies.
Our next 5% Challenge is daily exercise. The food tracking is going well, so I am excited about it starting a new streak. I have to move my treadmill desk to a new location and get using it. Right now it's packed up while hubby paints.
Tonight we are visiting new friends and playing cards. Tomorrow night we are going to a Christmas party. It will be tempting to nibble on food, but I have to keep in mind we are there to visit not to eat. I need to come up with a 'rule' to handle the situation.
I stopped eating in the evenings by going to bed a little earlier - RULE 'I won't reward myself with food for staying up late'.
What rule do you have when you go out?
