Our question today is, "What are you doing to encourage yourself to stay on track?"
One of the best things about my new habit is that there is built in encouragement. I know from past experience that if I track consistently, I am healthier, feel better and lose weight. So, that's a whole lot of encouragement right there!
As for extra encouragement, I will reward myself once a week for logging 6 days of food (completely). This may be a reward of a shopping trip or a trip to the dog park with Sadie or even just an hour to read instead of doing housework. This will evolve as time goes on, and I'll keep working on things to help me stay on track.
On another note, today was a good day for tracking. After reading all the comments from yesterday, I thought it might be good to plan ahead and track most of my food in the morning or even the night before. So, I tracked most of my food (except dinner) mid-morning. I think this will help me stay on track. Then, I can adjust if I haven't planned for something or if I'm going out with friends. THANKS to my SparkFriends for the idea!
