Food Tracking, Swimming, Misc.

Friday, August 28, 2015

I've been trying to be consistent with food tracking, but I hate it. Still going to keep at it as best as possible, and I know its value, but I feel like I'm wasting my time and effort.

Yesterday I went back for the Aquatic Fitness class only to find that it had been cancelled. But I paid to go into the big people's pool (the class is held in the pool that has shallow parts for exercising). It was a much better workout, cheaper admission, and unlimited use as compared with the one hour class. I think this is what I'll do from now on. Plus, I didn't have problems with breathing chlorine this time.

Hot temps have hit; September and October are going to be mega-toasty. That's the way it is; I appreciate a/c, but gives me a huge headache. And the monthly bill gives me an even bigger headache. (smiling)

Overall, I think adding swimming will be a great boost to my regimen. Starting September 1, I am doing a big six month plan for a few changes that I want for myself by my February birthday. We'll see.

Have a happy, healthy day.

    Always good to find new ways to be active. Glad you liked your pool workout today.
    Yes, stay cool, we've got a couple more months ahead of us. Day by day they've been promising it would cool down a bit, well, I'm still waiting…

    emoticon I agree, tracking with Spark's nutrition tracker is a pain when you make, say, big old salad with all kinds of ingredients or a soup. Do you use the food groupings and recipe features? That makes it a little bit easier...

    tracking by the grouping process saves time when it comes to nutrition...A repetitive HEALTHY food plan also helps!!! emoticon

    I don't like tracking either. It is way too much work unless you are someone who eats processed foods and can just enter 2 or 3 things. The healthier you eat the more work it is.

    I love A/C and could not live without it. We need to spend less money on it though. We have insulated our house well though.

    The swimming sounds great!
