I Will Not Log My Food...

Monday, August 04, 2008

Today I am trying something new. I have been counting calories most of my life. It drives me crazy emoticonI am going to try and only log in 5 items (to get my points) and then wing it. I believe it will help me eat less and not obsess about food. I will eat when I am hungry and only pick healthy things. I will be more conscious in why, when, & how I eat. I know this might sound backwards to some people, but I know this works for me. At the end of the day I might log everything in just to see how well I did, but basically I know what to eat. I'm in the stage that you don't have to log everyday, but was afraid to try it.

When I log my food in everyday I'm obsessed with getting all the calories in. This way I will only think about food when I'm hungry! At the end of the day if I'm under in calories from what I should be, then i will have a fruit or bowl of cereal!

    I have been doing the same on and off lately. I found it helped to jot down the foods in summary form in the "notes" section of the nutrition log b/c then it still prevented me from eating crap b/c I would still have to "tell" people, but it was a quick log and not calorie counting.

    Mixing things up is great sometimes. It doesn't hurt to try~and you have been at this long enough to know what you can and can not have ~ More important, how much of something you can have.

    Every once in a while we have to try something else ~ especially when we hit a plateau! I sure hope your plateau is over soon!!!

    Wishing you the best!!
