Up all night with a coughing child so...
Friday, October 18, 2013
I thought I would check in. I'm frustrated with my school job. I chair the Halloween carnival and we are hitting several snags this year. My child has been home sick since Saturday and five of those night my child has been up with a horrible cough. It's going around. I'm so glad I'm not trying to be super strict. Because then I'd feel guilty that I'm not staying at 1200 cal. So at least this way at my 1750 cal I'm not adding guilt and anguish to my stress and frustration and tiredness. As it is I notice myself wanting to eat but not from hunger. From other things. I'm glad to be aware of it. I think I'm aware because I'm not trying to hide my eating from myself. Doesn't that sound silly but it's true.
I'm not being very successful with the spark app for tracking food. It seems that when I enter something in I get many items matching but really most of them are not truly a match. But I have to add it in order to view the entire name and nutrition to determine if its the right info.
I'm still using my other app because I'm used to it and it has most if my current foods already entered custom in it. But that doesn't earn my points. Oh well. I'll hopefully get passed the learning curve.
