The point of tracking and writing down my food is that it is supposed to help me get this eating thing under control. The theory is that if you have to take a notebook out for every little thing you eat you will want to stop eating so much just so you don’t have to write it down. I decided that I would confess my food in my blog and that will some how deter me from making such bad choices… so far it hasn’t. Yet I am still tracking and sharing… so here we go:
Breakfast: chocolate superfoods shake with dark cherries and spinach. Coffee with almond milk. Then a cup of espresso with chocolate milk.
Work: coworker was running late. To make it up to me he bought me a froo froo coffee. Coconut Cluster..it was good. Coconut, praline and vanilla in it. So good. I am quit positive it has a lot of calories in it though.
Lunch: Coca-cola, salad with homemade dressing, chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers and goat cheese.
Snack: I tried the coconut chocolate almond yogurt mix-ins by Yoplait..it was so good!! Also ate my raw almonds.
Then I drove home….and had tacos.. 2 old taco shells that I stuffed with shredded pork and cheese and a few black olives (sorry to those who don’t like them) and snap peas… I would have been alright if I would have just stopped there..but oh no! not me.. so I crumbled up the rest of the shells (five of them) and covered them with cheese and salsa and ate them like nachos. Then I decided I needed something sweet so I drank a glass of chocolate milk.
Maybe the trick is to log the food WHEN you eat it instead of at the end of the day. If I physically had to take a tracker book out each time I ate I wouldn’t have time to so I wouldn’t eat!?!
Have you tried tracking your food? Or any bad habit that you want to quit? Did it work for you? I will keep on going.. something has got to change.. and it will be me and my appetite.
