Tracking After Midnight
Wednesday, February 24, 2016
7/200 for the yearly blog challenge.
So a random question to throw out there...for those of you who cross the midnight hour and then eat or drink after, what day do you count those calories? Do you count them based on everything before you sleep is day X and everything after is a new day?
I'm torn on how to do it. I've been tracking everything after midnight as a new day, but this almost seems like beating the system to me. And then there are a couple of days a year where I'm awake 24 hours before sleeping, so would that be all one day even though it spans 2, or 2 separate days? On the opposite end of the spectrum, I take a (horrible, terrible, wonderful God-send) medicine every Friday night called Methotrexate, which wipes me out for most of Saturday. I really despise that medicine, but it stops my body from producing antibodies agains Humira. (I had an unknown fever for a year, extreme swelling in my feet, extremely achy joints and high bp all as a reaction to medicine UGH!) I sleep most of Saturday off & on, so if you go with the sleeping theory, that is wiped out with Saturdays. LOL
Likewise, if I use my Runkeeper app for walking my dog after midnight, it will definitely put it as part of the new day.
So, what do, or would, you do if you happen to be up past midnight and eat or drink?
