January 2013 and READY

My friend Beth says life is now...not ten pounds from now. She is SO right! Like a lot of people I know, this journey has to be a lifestyle change if we want to be successful. I was reading my old comments from 2008 about snacking at night. I STILL work on overcoming that bad habit.
My latest ideas seem to be working to curb that bad habit. I play Bingo Blitz on my phone, which keeps my hands full. My other fix that seems to satisfy my sweet craving is a cup of chocolate raspberry decaf mid evening.
I know I have to be accountable to myself and my nutrition tracker is the best tool I've ever used. Sometimes it is so hard to be completely honest when I'm logging my food for the day. How dumb is that!? If i can't be honest with myself there, how am I going to improve?!? I'm still surprised on a daily basis how much difference one little change can make to my entire day's totals on the tracker. For instance, switching from a couple of cookies or peanut butter crackers to one ounce of almonds for a mid morning snack gives me protein I was short on, and helped my cut my carbs total which is almost always high.
Baby steps folks. Baby steps change lives. Ask my friend Beth: indygirl.
