Tracking, tracking...

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

I tracked for, count 'em, two days in a row.
On day 2 (i.e., last night), I went to a little dinner gathering where it was a noshing affair and ate what I thought was WAY TOO MUCH. Partly, it's because I brought seltzer water but left in the fridge...d'uh!

So: Then I thought: Oh, hell, I ate too much. Don't bother tracking all that stuff you stuffed in your mouth...just start tomorrow.

No, my other self said: Just track it.

And: While I didn't measure the stuff I ate (just estimated) it turns out I ate about exactly enough all told during the day to MAINTAIN my weight.

Coulda done worse.

I'm having a tough time getting a solid workout with my broken toe, but I went for a six mile bike ride today. Will walk a bit tonight on the way to the fireworks.

Will probably kayak some tomorrow.

All in all, it's better than sitting on my butt...but it's not a breathe-heavy-heartrate-up kind of workout.

Signing off for today.

    Can't say I like tracking but I do track because (I keep telling myself) even if "I'm" not tracking my body is. (It's like "not communicating": impossible!!)

    Tracking is weird isn't it? I am trying. Fireworks sounds fun. All I a getting to do this past week is walk. Can't wait till Zumba starts again next week on a summer schedule

    I've been struggling with tracking too. Maybe if I stopped cheating I'd willing to own up.
