OMG...Reality Bites (Continuing my experiment)
Tuesday, September 13, 2011
Reality struck me hard today. I am tracking my food while I am sticking to my experiment. The weigh in is on Thursday. What I am finding is just how bad my diet is. The majority of my calories are coming from fat and carbs. Now I see why tracking your food is such a successful tool. It lets you know what you are really consuming versus what you think you are consuming. It's a real eye opener.
I am a little disheartened because I actually thought I maintained a pretty good diet. I don't do red meat or even poultry. I try to stay away from bread, I'm not a big fan of it. I try to incorporate fruits and veggies as much as possible, but I guess that really isn't enough. I know that I am a sucker for condiments. BBQ sauce and mayo are used frequently in my house and it looks like I either need to cut back or cut them out completely.
I have my cardio scheduled for tomorrow (1.5 30min mile) and I think I may do an extra session on Wednesday just to attempt to work off all this fat I am apparently consuming. SMH!
