I craved potato chips..

Thursday, January 30, 2014

..and instead I made this:

Fresh rutabaga, carrots, celery, cucumber, dip made with organic soy yogurt and green tea.

I've been tracking meticulously most days since my last post, and I know where to start making improvements now. I had a pretty good hunch about where the excess calories in my diet came from, still tracking revealed some surprises. Who knew I had 200+ calories many days in rye crackers alone? And with salami, mind you, doubling the numbers. I certainly wasn't aware.

So there it is, living and learning, trying to make better choices. And tonight this meant choosing fresh veggies over potato chips.

Not bad, if I may say so myself!

    Good job tracking all by mouth and then going back over to see how you are doing. That's the way forward on your journey as you learn what does and doesn't work for you!
