Losing Track of the Tracker

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I was reading through my nutrition tracker, feeling a little sad that I went over my calories twice last week...when I noticed something strange. My tracker said that I had eaten Sour Cream & Onion potato chips. I sat there staring at it. Those chips pushed my tracker over my limit by more than 200 calories! BUT I never ate them. Heck, I wouldn't even allow them in my house!

I know for a fact that I did not eat any sour cream & onion chips. I would remember that! So, how did it get on my tracker? Did I eat something else and enter the wrong food? No...I actually remember that meal, which was more like me snacking on crackers and tofu stuff.

The whole thing has me baffled...and feeling a little silly. You see, as I said before, I was beating myself up about going over my limit TWICE last week. It turns out I only went over once!

Sour Cream & Onion potato chips?! My gawd...that's just insanity!

    Sometimes when I go to enter food and use the enter key it gives me a wrong food. Like this morning I wanted to add ground cinnamon to my breakfast. I typed in cinnamon and hit enter. It gave me options for Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. This has happened to me more than once and with different foods too. If I wasn't really paying attention I would have entered the wrong food. If I type the name of the food and actually click on search I get results for what I was looking for.

    I hope this helps.
