Track Fitness And Nutrition The Night Before Or In The Am!

This Sparked Me!

This always works for me. Always. If I log my entire day nutritionally whenever possible, and if I at least log WHAT I'm going to do fitness wise (but maybe unsure of how many minutes it'll take), it motivates me to eat right and do it. Deleting an exercise bc you didn't do it or adding a food to make you go over your calories for the day stinks, believe me! :)

    I do this too HAPPYD... for the exact reasons you talked about. It feels awfully disappointing to go in at the end of the day and delete excercises that I had planned to do! I also found that if the fiance knows I already entered in his workout while he was at work, it motivates him to get downstairs and get it done!

I have yet to track the food I will eat, but by lunch I already know what I am making for dinner so I usually enter that in at the same time, that way i can see if I have left myself enough room for a healthy evening snack, or if I have picked a healthy enough meal for dinner.

    I typically do this too, mainly with exercise. If I add it to my tracker, I "must" do it. To have to delete it is a huge no-no!
