Day 37 - The Calorie Counter Obsession
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
The one thing I sort of pride myself on is the ability to "guesstimate" the amount of calories in a single food item. I'm talking from a tablespoon of barbecue sauce to an entire plate of food. Well.. I think my gift is standing in my way.
I think it's one of the factors in my whole reluctance to push myself harder in the work-out arena. I am so obsessed with how many calories I intake compared to how many I burn, that once I figure I've burned enough calories while exercising.. I will stop even though I know I can go longer. My excuse.. you are in a deficit, so it's ok.
No ma'am. It is not okay.
So.. I've decided to take a break from the calorie counting for a minute. This does not mean I will indulge in any of my trigger foods or anything like that. I will spend more time making sure I'm fulfilled on the "movement" side of things.
