Eye opening first day!
Sunday, June 13, 2010
Today was my first day of honestly tracking EVERYTHING that I ate. It has always been so easy to skip tracking that cup of soda from the store or the fork-full of food while fixing dinner. Do those calories count if you are not really sitting down and eating anyways?! Well, I needed to face the facts and come to the reality that I had to track everything and to be honest with myself first. Of course, knowing this also meant that I did not eat as much today. I certainly did not want to come face to face with the cold reality of what I have been doing for all these years and see how damaged I am. But I must admit, I ate with better choices today, albeit, at the end of the day, I am still hungry and am at the limit for my numbers. So much for the sherbert dessert I was going to have. I wrote down the last of my dinner meal, was very happy to see that I was just below my limits for all my numbers, when alas, I forgot to write down that I splurged on a Sprite. Curse that 140 Cal. and 38 carbs.! Put me just over my numbers! That little splurge was so not worth the cost. Had I seen or looked at the can first, I never would have had it in the first place.
But triumph today I had. I tracked the entire day, I had 5 servings of Vegs/fruit, 6 servings of water, and I live to do it again another day!
