I too felt that SP was very time consuming so what I've learned to do is... do all of my tracking for the entire day in one sitting. Yep, everything - exercise, all meals, water, fruits/veges... everything. I even spend a little time reading an article, etc to build up a few more points. I do all of my daily tracking each morning. After entering my meals, I print out my "food report" and keep it with me all day. At the end of the day, I login again and make adjustments accordingly.

Much like counting my calories, I track everything I spend. I Have an excel spreadsheet that I sit down at night and put everything into just like I do my nutrition counter. 3 years ago I was almost bankrupt and I make a very good salary. Today I have my credit cards paid off.
