Tracking during family picnics.

Monday, August 12, 2013

I had a tough weekend. I spent it at my brother's house on the lake. We had food set out all day and we had our cooler full of beer. When other people make a food item, it's really hard to track it. So I tried to do small portion sizes but there was so much food. So a small portion size of a little bit of everything really adds up. I feel like I failed but I'm pushing the reset button and starting all over again. I'm really trying to do the positive talk rather than the negative talk and it seems to help but you still have some in the back of your mind. Here's to a brand new week starting over!! Cheers!

    I have two ways of doing this since trying to do it right and accurately is just out of control. I created a Favorite, called, (AAA Unknown) or something like that. I put it down as 100 calories. Then I just try to guess at how many of these to put down for that day or meal so I have some kind of idea where I'm at. Of course the balance is not figured out, but at least I know if I think I ate too much, about right or low.

    The other day I spent the day at the beach and so I just snacked a little bit all day long. This time I just didn't put anything down even though I knew I probably didn't eat too much over my top end.

    Either way will show you when you run a graph, that something odd happened on those days and are not to be worried about. The important thing is that you ate little portions. Anyway, do the best you can and keep the faith.

    You had the awareness to NOT fill your plate every half hour with large portions,, That is something,, get-togethers any time of year are hard,, back on your home turf you gain control again
