Logging calories

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Why didn't I ever think of logging calories before I eat them? It's Genius! It completely takes away the... "OMG I ate 3000 calories today" moment. It's amazing. Ate the start of my day I now know what I can eat, what is safe to eat, how to substitute if I am feeling like eating something different... Now, before I eat a morsel, I know at the end of the day I am going to be successful, I know I am going to stay within my calorie range and make healthy choices about impulse eating. It's totally the way I am going to be eating from now on. Genius I tell you...

    I think I'm going to try that method. I think it would help me plan a little better instead of just throwing some stuff together and then finding out how it stacks up. Thanks!

    You are a genius! Isn't great when we have the opportunity to set ourselves up for success? Unfortunately not everyone takes advantage of it! I just learned something new on Sparkpeople today. I went out for a bike ride, I was able to FIRST chart my route, know how many miles I would travel, and after it calculates how many calories I burned. Plus I could save it to do again. The best part is you click on a little button to add it to your fitness tracker. How cool is that? emoticon emoticon

    Good for you! That truly is a great way to monitor and know what the day holds. I am going to try your method as well. I may even take it a step further and do a week at a time!
