Record Your Good Choices

This Sparked Me!

Every time that I make a good choice NOT to eat or drink something, I make a list on the "notes" page of the nutrition tracking page. At the end of the day I feel much better about any slip-ups that I have had if I can see the "slip-ups" that I prevented.

By making a list (e.g., "didn't drink beer or eat nachos when watching the NCAA game") of the good choices, I find that I am much easier on myself when I do not make as good of a choice as I would like with my food!

    I think the notes at the bottom of my food tracker are a great tool! I've been keeping track of good days and bad, why I went over, explaining hi-calorie foods, low energy, etc. Great to look back adn see trends to find out when I'm sucessful and when I struggle with my eating habits!

    It's amazing how the longer you eat right and make good choices you don't want to make bad ones! You want to stay on comes less of a diet and more of a lifestyle! Keep up the hard work!! :)
