The Truth: The Whole Truth and Nothing but the TRUTH

Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Today is the first day of my brand new STREAK to track my food.
The TRUTH is that I started out with Sparkpeople many years ago and was excited to log my food. After several years of logging my nutrition and exercise I gave it up. Instead, I started playing video games like Farmville, and now I play Hay Day. I play ALOT. It is a social game, and I play with family members and friends. It takes up ALOT of my time.
I finally made the HUGE decision that if I had the time to play online video games, then I MUST log my nutrition and my fitness. I travel frequently with my husband and have all the time in the car to read magazines, listen to online books and of course play Hay Day.
As of today, I am STREAKING. Logging Food and Fitness is now my PRIORITY! I will do my best to stay within my calorie range, just like I did many years ago when I first started Spark People.
The TRUTH is that online games have NO BENEFIT in helping me reach my goals for my desired weight.
Step aside, Hay Day, Pinterest, Facebook, Bingo, etc.
The TRUTH is that taking the TIME to log my food and fitness will help me reach my goals.
I plan to blog along the way as I jump a few hurdles. AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!

    Good for you!!! My hobby is writing letters (as you know!), and I only allow myself to do that now if I get 11,000 steps daily. I don't get to write many letters any more, now that I'm in an even more sedentary job than I was before, but it's a policy that shows where my priorities lie, and that is important.
