Beck Trek - Chapter 6 - Day 14 - Plan for Tomorrow (EVERY day)
Thursday, September 10, 2015
I'm so grateful for the sparkpeople food tracker. It makes this part so easy. You can put food into your tracker before you eat it...look at it, think about it, tweak it...and then decide if it fits well into your plan.
I couldn't imagine trying to do this without a food tracker like the one here on sparkpeople.
We are so lucky!
My food tracking mantra for when the scale creeps up a little is "Can't track it, don't eat it." This keeps me away from things that are too complicated to track like calorie laden casseroles and foods with lots of ingredients.
Food tracking is so important if you want to lose weight. I can't emphasize that enough. You think you know how much you are eating, but if you aren't tracking it, you don't really know.
Beck addresses all the sabotaging thoughts for not writing a food plan...and I've made my share of excuses...especially on the weekends when I don't want to be bothered with it. When my weight goes up, food tracking on the weekends is the one thing that stands between me and getting the scale back to its happy place. And even after 7 years of maintenance...I still rebel against doing it. But when I finally get over myself, and start tracking, the scale moves.
So get over yourself...and DO IT!
