tracking and ice cream

Monday, August 02, 2010

Too funny - after a couple months hiatus, I'm back to tracking, and once again, I'm blown away by how useful it is. That's why it made me laugh to realize my last blog entry was also about tracking. Oh well, I guess I'm a big fan of tracking.

Today I had three ice cream cones for breakfast. Normally that would make me feel like there's no point to even trying to have a healthy food day, but by tracking, I realized that it wasn't a huge diet disaster. The cones are only 20 calories each, and since I only have half a cup of ice cream, it's probably the same as buying an ice cream cone at the store. So I just had zucchini for lunch (and another ice cream cone) and I might even be able to stay in my range if I only have a salad for supper.

I never make my goal to diet or even stay in my range, it's always just to track. But somehow when I'm tracking, I keep my calories much more in my range without feeling like I'm dieting.

So, yeah. I guess I'm glad to be back and tracking is still great.

Oh, also, the fruits and veggie tracker is fantastic - what a great addition! In a world of forced software changes that are often not for the better, it's nice to come back to the site and see that it has improved!
