Log It Anyway!



Even when I eat off plan, and think that I have totally messed up my calorie count for the day, I still carrying on tracking & logging my food. It usually isn't as bad as I think, and I've only gone a couple of hundred calories over. It helps me remember that I don't need to blow a whole day/week/lifetime over one donut!

  • You are so right! I do the same - I just shake it off and start fresh the next morning.

  • I like to track it all. The good, the bad and the ugly all gets logged in. For me this isn't about hiding anything. It's my life and my choice, so I have no reason to not log it in. Sometime it really surprises me that "the bad" wasn't as bad as I thought. Not necessarily something I want to repeat but not a total disaster. - by MACEWOMAN
    I agree, I find it helps keep you strong for the next day! Every time I look at my weekly graph it makes me want to keep it more consistent so when I go over I get annoyed because it not looks wrong and it feels wrong! - by CAMBOKAZZ
  • So true, little overages aren nothing to lose it over. Just work a little harder in the gym. Then again calorie fluxations seems to help move the scale sometimes so over/under/on target all balance in the end because no matter what it is about the amount of activity!!

  • Brilliant! And, what I like to do is only track my food for the 5 day week. I take weekends off - but, the good habits usually stay in force! - by KIMSTACEY
