I Hate Food Tracking!
Thursday, April 04, 2013
I absolutely detest it! Does anyone else have this problem? While Sparkpeople makes it fairly painless, I still find it tedious and frustrating. At the end of the day sometimes, I go to bed without bothering to finish it, and then I have to do it in the morning, and I just, uggh, that's how I feel. I have the mobile app, and that helps me track on the go, and I try my hardest to track my food as I eat it, but I just hate it! Maybe I should do some self analysis and see just why I hate it so much.
Honestly, I know the point of it, and I know it helps and I know it works, but I really dislike it.
In other news though, I am still fighting with this cold I have. There are lingering leftover symptoms that are really slowing me down. I have an annoying cough, especially at night, and some pretty nasty exhaustion. I think, if I could sleep a night or two straight through, I would start to feel a whole lot better, but the cough keeps waking me up. When I finally do get to sleep, I don't feel rested when I wake up. So very frustrating!
Beyond that though, I have once again reset all my goals and totals. I want a clear, clean picture of now to my goal. I set my goal at 199lbs, because my end goal of 145lbs just seems inconceivable to me. I haven't seen that weight since I was 16ys old. More than half my lifetime ago. Who knows, I may get to say 150lbs and decide I'm happy there, or I may aim for the 130's. I won't know until I'm almost there. So for now, it's 199lbs, because I REALLY want to see me under 200lbs. I know she's in there somewhere, but I haven't seen her since my daughter was born. Over 15yrs ago! Even that seems like a bit of a stretch to me, but I do not see it as unattainable, just a long way off.
Ideally, I am hoping to be down 20lbs by July, in honesty though, it will probably be closer to 15lbs. Still smaller than I am now though, and thats what matters. Always and ever heading down not up!
