You've got to track it all

Tuesday, November 07, 2017

In order to be successful, you really, really, really need to track it all.
It all works together, if you let one element slip, they all slip, and go tumbling to the ground.
That is at least how it seems to work in my book.
I have gotten busy in life. Real busy. So busy, I have not been tracking my food, other than my breakfast because boring old me has the exact same thing for breakfast every morning 98.8% of the time since I am allergic to eggs. Oatmeal, a banana, milk, and regular coffee with sugar. That's my vice, and I can't do artificial, and I can't do coffee without a little sweet, but I digress.

My fitbit tracks my steps, so that is daily fitness, walking, steps that track automatically daily.
I have to physically log in here every day, which I do, on my phone, but sometimes for some weird reason, it ignores my log in and doesn't count (can anyone say broken streak?) I was part of healthy wage but that ended a few weeks ago, and I haven't pulled my budget together enough to do another session yet. I have been going to physical therapy and really working out 1-2 x's per week. My abs are getting toner, Yes, I am still overweight, obese even, but I can feel my flesh getting, well, less fleshy. My hubby says he can see my lessening bulge around my tummy, and my back. Yes.

To log
weight (weekly) stay honest with yourself
exercise - something every day, but give yourself some kind of rest day once weekly, and lay off if you are sick.
Food - log it, write it down. Do something. This is my week point at the moment.
Log it.

Become a logger - log it.

Morning, day, night
winter, spring, summer, fall.

As Nike says - just do it.
Getting healthier is my job, one step at a time, one day at a time.
Let's keep ourselves encouraged and motivated.
