Staying on Track

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Tracking what I eat really helps me to stay within my calorie range. I have to be careful not to leave myself short at night as that's when the cravings really pop up and I'm more likely to blow it if I went overboard during the day.

It seems like it's easier to log my food during the week when I'm at work than it is on the weekends. I think we run around too much!! Still, I have my Spark app on my Kindle, so I really have no excuse.

I'm feeling a lot better today than I have the last couple of days. Whatever has been going on with my head (head cold? allergies?) has settled down somewhat today. Yay! I think I'm more positive when I feel good!

So my plan for dinner, when my guy gets done at work, is that wherever we go I'm going to get a salad and enjoy every bite of it. And if I have any calories left in my range I may just celebrate with a 100 calorie fudge bar when I get home...

    I just started tracking and it helped me become much more aware of all the calories in a variety of foods. Some of them are not that surprising, others are!

    I agree that the tracking works. I really find it helps me plan my food better and not only remember to eat healthy choices but also not to eat on the fly!
    Good luck on this journey

    Tracking works so well. It's good to use it to plan ahead.

    I'm the same as you in that the nights are the most difficult. I usually plan out my day of food when I first wake up in the morning, making sure I have a snack for the evening. It's still hard sometimes. Good luck.
