where everyone wants to start to get healthy - wants to work out - wants to watch what their eating.
The trick is making it last more then 2 weeks into the year...
I'm speaking to myself more then anyone with that statement.
So I'm at a dilemma - the food diary.
I use My Fitness Pal & last year, at once point, had used it over 250 days in a row. I missed using it when we went out of town & when the number went down to zero again, I lost all motivation.
So I'm torn whether I want to start it again or not.
Yes - I do think it makes a difference to watch your intake.
Yes - I do like to stay up on how much protein I get in a day since I'm not a meat eater & I rarely get enough protein in a day according to my daily entries.
But I also know it makes me obsessive over the issue...
I feel like I have to read every label & check the calories & figure out when I'm going to work out to cover some extra calories.
... & truth be told, I know that's the point..
But I can take things to a whole other level.
Obsessive doesn't even cover it.
|Obsession can take different levels of crazy|
It makes it work... not a lifestyle... which is what a food change should be.
So maybe I'll give a try & see how it goes.
Maybe not be TOO stressed if I miss every last count of crackers I eat but still guess-timating to know around where I'm at in day?
We'll see ...
if you see me & I'm counting out green beans on my plate, you know its time to get me help.
