Ack: Don't want to track!
Sunday, July 01, 2012
Got on the scale this morning and am UP 3 pounds. Grrrr!!!
I got a little off my exercise this week because of the toe, but still got in a couple walks and a bike rides. I'm back "in gear" because I've figured out I can ride my bike for activity until my toe heals.
I've been sneaking in a bit of bread...and that is NOT good for me!
I know that this past spring when I went on a stringent diet of whole foods only -- no sugar, no salt, no wheat, no dairy -- I dropped weight faster than I could practically even measure it. I was eating absolutely as much as I wanted -- including fats and protein -- and was still losing weight.
I was NOT tracking.
I don't like tracking -- especially in the summer when many of the things I eat are variations on the same thing (i.e., green vegetables) -- and lots of 'em -- so it takes WAY TOO MUCH time to track just one meal.
But: I also had for dinner: 1 WHOLE bagel and probably 2 oz. of CHEESE. That ought to stop a weight loss program in its tracks!
Well, it looks like my choices are to eliminate sugar, salt, wheat, dairy...or track.
There's no fooling mother nature.
I'm making a decision that just for TODAY I will get my exercise in and track (staying within my calorie range).
Would love to hear from others on how they manage the track/don't track dilemma.
