tracking

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I hate to track what I eat. I just really strain against this discipline. I don't mind eating healthy but recording every bite just makes me mad. I don't think I should have to do it. I want to maintain my weight by listening to my body and monitoring my hunger and making good choices. I wonder if this is possible? Maybe. But I know I can eat compulsively too.
For some reason recording my exercise does not bother me. I have a heart rate monitor and I love meeting my goal and getting a trophy at the end of the week. It's like a little personal trainer and I have gotten to where I like to exercise.

    I absolutely know what you mean. I hate tracking food too. I haven't tracked for a week. I am on a specific eating plan, so I know how much of what type of food I eat everyday, I just don't write it down as I eat. I think you and I both know that we SHOULD be logging food. It helps us to really SEE what we are eating. Also, it can help us problem solve if our weight loss stops.This weight loss journey is a whole change to everything we once did. Sometimes it is hard make the changes we need to make.

    I know what you mean about the little trophy- I love seeing it on my HRM! I'm actually better at tracking my food than I am at my fitness (although I've been much better the last week or so). That probably comes from Weight Watchers, but I write down every morsel that goes into my mouth!
