back to reality

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

Well I have been back home for a few days now. I think it was a mistake to stop tracking my food on vacation, as it has gotten me out of the habit of doing so. I recorded yesterday, but didn't record today. I need to start recording again so I can see/control what I eat. Maybe I am going about this the wrong way, why don't I start over the same way I did before? When I started the first time I just recorded what I ate and didn't worry too much about what I was eating. That way I could observe what I ate and gradually change it. Instead of trying to control what I eat and write everything down and do everything at once, I think I will cut myself a break and just record what it is that I eat for a week and then start to try and meet my goals. In the mean time, I plan on working out tomorrow. I also need to clean the basement.

Oh yeah, i mentioned that my phone broke when I was on vacation, so I got a new one, the one that I had set as my halfway goal point, the Samsung Galaxy S III. I love it so much! I just have to figure out what my new halfway point goal is now.

I have been feeling sick this week so I haven't exercised yet, but I am feeling better and really want to get back to working out. I can't think of much else to write. I haven't been doing much of anything except for lying down.

    Have you checked out the spark article about consistency? ( if I have already sent it to you sorry..)
    But I found this really helpful.
    ( copy and post to your server to see this)

    For the last two weeks I have been drinking a mostly vegetable smoothie with the veggies from my garden... a little pineapple or peach or melon and zucchini, spinach and pumpkin smoothie taste good for breakfast.
    Most days I add a little greek yogurt or cottage cheese or tofu.

    I think going back to the basics and only tracking your food, not focusing on eating a certain way will help. But considering you're working on making better choices, you're not technically starting all over again. It's all about doing better, not about being perfect. You'll get back to it!

    Oh! I hope you feel better!
    It's always good to do things at your own pace food wise.. that way you don't get burnt out or start to binge. Have a good week!!
