Today was 8 days of eating right and tracking. I had a crummy day. I let stress get to me, I hated my lunch even though there’s nothing wrong with a tuna sandwich. I wanted fast food. A burger, pizza, fries, cookies, something! Some excuse to e... Read more

So for the last few weeks I have been tracking my food. It is amazing how much just being aware does for what you put in your mouth. I KNOW this works because I have done it before so I dont know why it surprises me. But it feels good to be mak... Read more
