So... I've been successfully tracking my food since Saturday, and let me say, while it is annoying to keep up with (even though, I know... I have the app on my phone), it is DEFINITELY keeping me in check!!
For example: last night actually; my boyfriend and I went out to a local hole-in-the-wall bar for trivia night. While there, he ate a grilled chicken sandwich (I ate before we left), and then as the night went on said he was hungry and would probably make a pizza when we got home.
I thought ok, that's all well and good, I still have a few hundred cals to play around with. But the more I thought about it, the more I didn't want to physically log the pizza into my tracker. So we get home, and we're both engrossed in online reading/video games (we're awesome lol) and I said, well babe... I'm hungry, so I'm going to have an apple w/ some PB. Want one? To which he said yes, and the pizza never came up.
Then today we laid around at the pool for awhile and went grocery shopping. He went to school at 4, and then I decided to kick my butt into a run (after complaining to myself that it was hot out) and did the same route I took Saturday. I pushed myself to run the whole way to the turn-around point instead of stopping before (even though sometimes the red lights prevent that).
Got home and was about to start dinner when one of the shift managers from work called and said she desperately needed help and would I want to come in. I said yes since my hours suck this week, and inhaled a bowl of chicken taco chili (thank you crock-pot meal!!). Just got home about an hour ago, and I'm only sitting at 1,300 cals for the day. I had a turkey, spinach, and banana pepper sandwich that is basically my go-to and HOLY cow is it more sodium-ridden than I anticipated! I'll have to watch that more for sure. Although, part of the over-kill for the day was Nate stopped for a protein bar at the gas station, and he also got a taquito which he shared (and yes, I did track!) and the sodium from that was pretty high.
Buuuuut all of that said and done, I have been doing AWESOME with my water intake, and I think with how much I sweat out during runs and then the increased water, I shouldn't feel TOO too much of the sodium bloat (I hope!)
Quote of the Day:
LAUGH like you're 10
PARTY like you're 20
TRAVEL like you're 30
THINK like you're 40
ADVISE like you're 50
CARE like you're 60
LOVE like you're 70
We can ALL learn something from each other :)
