"...and then I ate a million calories" - tracking on bad days

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Yesterday was a bad day in many ways. I am still recovering from this illness of mine and yesterday I had a bit of a relapse (started running a fever, had to take a long nap). I was hungry all day for whatever reason, maybe the drugs I am on? Anyway, it was a bad day, I ate a lot, I moved very little.

There is something that happens on bad days when I am eating a lot, I know I have gone over and it feels like I have eating millions of calories, way more than I can track. Yesterday, I took a different tact. I knew I was eating more than I should, but I tracked anyway and I was surprised how I wasn't "millions" of calories over, only about 1000 calories over. 1000 calories is a lot, but it probably wasn't any worse than days I had before I joined SP.

Anyway, I am still here, still feeling strange, hoping for a better day today.

    That is why I began tracking on spark again. I was so misjudging how I was eating. So new day for both of us. We counted and we move forward. Feel better soon.

    Way to keep on Track even while you are feeling so terrible. That is a hard thing to do.

I hope ou feel better soon. Rest, relax and recover. Our return will be stronger if you are feeling better.
