Loggin' Food

Friday, June 26, 2020

I have been diligently loggin' my food. Now, we all know that at some point, it is easy to fall off. It has been easier since I am at home full-time right now but, still no walk in the park. I rush to grab food in between meetings and scribble my food on a pad I keep in the kitchen. I also notice I am spending more time weighing my food because I am home. This is a luxury I will not have when I go back to working in the office.

Then there is the dreaded: BOREDOM. Sometimes, I just fall off. My goal is to have loggin' my food so ingrained into my nature that I don't think about it. It definitely helps. By scrolling through my food log, I noticed I am hoarding my calories until the end of the day so I don't run out. I am making an adjustment to eat more balanced meals earlier in the day. Now, if I run out of calories and can't have my ice-cream after dinner tonight I am gonna be fire ant mad! emoticon emoticon It wouldn't hurt to skip the ice-cream but I love it so.

10 Minute Workout update: In addition to walk/ run this am, my daughter and I did a 10 min ab video before lunch. It's a family affair.

Best Wishes on all your health and fitness goals. Happy Fit Friday XOXO

    One option: plan & pre-log your food. Then 1) it's done; 2) balanced 3) you know you can have ice cream (just saw that a half-cup (usual 1 portion size) is about a half tennis ball. It's my #1 craving & fav food, & I *do* have a sweet tooth (but members in my fam are worse!...I don't add sugar to coffee/tea or anything except when making baked goods (I *do* occasionally add a little stevia to plain yogurt))).

    I log EVERYTHING that goes into this mouth, good, bad or ugly. It keeps me honest . If you like ice cream, eat it, but think about the portion size. I believe in YOU. You have got this. emoticon

    I tend to save calories for my evening ice cream! I love it!! WW has an easy food log so it's a bit easier but still a pain. Do you use the SP food log?

    I freeze bananas sometimes - peel before and put in food processor with some coco and that fixes my need for ice cream- just an idea- it is yummy. I think some other frozen berries would work too
