Always learning...

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

This week's challenge (food tracking) is always a rewarding one for me, and I'm always learning something new. I try to track my food regularly, but whenever I do it for the challenge, I realize just how many small bites I'm consuming. Those calories do add up. Now if only I could find a way to keep myself as particular when it is not challenge time?

This time I also learned a hard lesson about sugar! My whole family (besides me) had the stomach flu this past week. Sunday afternoon I had a very sugary coffee and then later a light dinner (since I was only cooking for myself). Later in the evening I all of a sudden felt super weak, and nauseous. I figured I was getting the same stomach bug, so I didn't eat anything else and went right to bed. Well....come to figure out in the morning, I was just having a blood sugar crash. I ate breakfast and started to feel better, but I guess since I waited so long I still didn't feel 100% until later that afternoon. Anyways, like I said, I'm always learning. I WON'T be doing that again! LESSON LEARNED!

    Well done. I like your encouragement on tracking. Maybe I write a blog about it.

    Fortunately, such food problems can go away as fast as they came. Happy to hear you are better.

    It is true that when you track food then you realize that what you have been eating is not that "innocent". I find it a bit hard to keep track of what I am eating and this is part of my failing to succeed! emoticon
    Melissa I hope you are fine now and keep up the good work! You are an awesome leader!

    It's always a shock adding in the snacks, you don't realise how much you're eating! And hope you don't get ill!

    It's funny what we can learn when we actually listen to our bodies. I hope you're able to avoid that flu bug!

    I try to avoid sugar and eat regularly to avoid crashing.
