The Slippery Slope Stops Here

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

I have been exercising.
I have been meditating.
What I have not been doing is using my fitbook and logging my food. What are my excuses? I forgot, I was busy. I got distracted. Hmmmm, this is supposed to be a priority for me.

Any tips on how to stick with logging food. What works for you?

    It does take some time and often i approximate with closest types of food items. There is also a Spark app for your phone. Saving foods to favorites helps cut down search time. I also track exercise and you can set up goals like meditate 3x/week or be positive to some one today.

    If you are like me, you tend to eat the same meals over and over again. Set up common "groupings" or use the copy meal feature to make it quick and easy. Do tracking in advance of eating, for example I had the same breakfast as the day before yesterday, planned it in advance so I could enter it in last night. At the same time, I made my lunch and was able to enter it in advance. As I was making my lunch. I was already in the fridge thinking about dinner the next day.

    Set up a goal to do it daily. Each time you accomplish it, reward yourself with whatever makes your heart sing (sticker on calendar, whatever it takes!) I disliked it too, but eventually it developed into a habit. Some habits are harder than others to develop!

    HUGS -- you can do it. I"d be in a muddle if I didn't track, weigh and measure. It's just the way it is for me.

    You know, I really dislike tracking food, so I'm not in any position to offer advice. I just do in at this site and force myself - it doesn't come naturally.
