No more food tracking
Monday, March 04, 2013
I decided to stop food tracking. I did it for a solid month and learned that that I generally stay within the range SP tells me I should be in, provided that I'm tracking correctly.
The realization to stop came to me yesterday. I went to the grocery store and got some fresh mozzarella with cherry tomatoes. When I was eating it, I was trying to count the number of mozzarella balls. Really, I don't think my weight or my issues need that type of scrutiny!
In addition, I don't really know if I'm tracking correctly half the time. I'm not willing to measure my food, so I take guesses as to how much rice I'm eating (3/4 c. or is it 1 c.?), how many beans are in my quesadilla, etc.
It was a good exercise while it lasted, and I enjoyed the SparkPoints, too! I like to think it shed some light on my eating habits (calories, calcium, and fiber), but even that is just a guess.
