Evil Plan Part I: Not Tracking ALL of My Food
Thursday, January 08, 2015
So I've decided to unleash my evil plan in parts. There are going to be several really evil facets to my master plan that will be really evil, really facet-ey and really plan-ey.
The First One: Not Tracking All Of My Food!!!!
Years ago I had a personal trainer who was hard-core about nutrition tracking. Me? Had never done so. She gave me the "if you bite it, then you gotta write it" mantra/ultimatum/dogma (*). That being very much work for someone who had never done it, I asked "How about I start with just like my first meal?"
PT Ratched (**), suffice it to say, did NOT approve.
I think that you can imagine how well that went.
So, as those of you who know me know, when I am faced with the religious "all" (tracking every morsel/nutrient including the flouride in my water) or "nothing" (don't track at all and wonder why I'm not making progress), I will pick the option C. Even and especially if I have to be the one to write it on the exam
So for January and February, I will track my breakfasts definitely and possibly mid morning snacks. I have already noted some of the macronutrient deficiencies in some of my breakfast smoothies and am correcting with swaps in amounts of ingredients.
As I notice trends in ingredients and foods in snacks, I will (***), create groupings and modify them given the day. There are ways to make tracking easier with the SP tool than I remember from last time.
Lunch, Dinner and the two other snacks will, alas, go completely untracked for another two months. In march I will hone in on the mid-morning snack and maybe track lunch. But for now it's "If I Breakfast it, I'll Write-eakfast , it" (****)". I'm so awesome!! #awesome
It's evil because it goes against the whole religious dogma of tracking everyth....
