August Wrap Up? September Ingredient

Friday, September 02, 2011

My goal for August was to track my food at least 27 days out of the 31 days in the month. Considering it's the month I go back to school and that it was also my birthday month, I had to make plans for days I KNEW I would have difficulty tracking. This helped a lot. I went to a few Picnic/BBQ's and when you don't know what other people have brought makes tracking difficult, so I knew that was going to be a day that I may not track. I also did not track on my birthday. I really didn't want to see the damage. Yes, GUILTY! But overall I made it a priority to plan ahead and use my spark people app to help me Track of my food, I am hoping this will help me be consistent with my September goal.

While on the subject my September goal, is to be a record breaker. I still don't have the specific guidelines for how to make this work, but I know that I want to maintain my streaks and not break records for tracking food, fitness minutes, and water.

Check my spark page for the actual guidelines soon. I'll try and get it posted quickly.

    That's awesome that you made it a priority! It can be difficult tracking when you are eating food that other people made at picnics and things. I try to find recipes in SparkRecipes that match what I think people made. I usually try to find one without any healthy substitutions or if I can't, I add the extra ingredients separately (like if I only find potato salad made with light mayo or with yogurt or something, I'll add an extra tablespoon or two of regular mayo to my tracker).
