The one thing that I think really keeps me on track is the fact that I have to log my calories! I have NEVER counted calories - and now I realize that was probably the reason of my demise for so many years! Some times i will indulge in something i think *Cant be THAT Bad* And when I go to log it I about fall out of my chair! One such instance was that I recently looked up the Jr Breakfast Burritos at Sonic - LOVE those things .. I used to get 2 of them on my way to Ft Carson whenever I was working out there .. drum roll please..... 660 CALORIES!!! OMG My goal is like 300 calories a meal MAYBE 400!! PLUS I would get a Rt 44 Dr Pepper! now granted i get extra extra ice but it was prob still like 12 oz of pop at least! Which is another 150 Calories!
Here is an example of my Day on Sat - Calories Burned vs Calories taken in:
SO .. One of the things the body bugg system does is also let you know how much of diff things you consumed such as Fat, Sodium etc - see example pic (also from Sat 9/4)!
As you can see Though I did eat a LOT of protein - I also over indulged in Fats & Cholesterol
So - even though I am hitting some good numbers others need to decrease and yet others need to increase - such as my Fiber and Calcium!
So to say the least I am learning more and more about eating Healthy! I am excited about having a shop at a Farmers Market - I have been trying some amazing food that I have NEVER tried before! I will post my recipe for Summer Squash Parmesan soon :)
I would love to hear from you guys - Any healthy Recipes You enjoy? How your doing on YOUR journey? Or just to say HI!
