I hate keeping track

Seriously, I hate it! Mostly because I forget about it, and I'm compelled to be scrupulously honest so I don't want to give myself more than I actually earned, but I don't want to cheat myself either, and UGH! Can I just start over? I'm supposed to be writing down everything I eat (which is not making me eat any less, mind you) and I haven't done it since last Tuesday. I haven't even picked a new goal for this week. I better pick vitamins because it's easy, and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.

Exercising went really well for me last week. I did the 30 Day Shred twice on level one and COULD NOT believe I ever did level three and level one in the same workout. Running made me all achy and I barely had any stamina. But I'm A+ in the water department, so I guess that's one thing to feel good about. Getting back in the swing of things has proven MUCH harder than I anticipated.

PS- I can't even find my vitamins.


  1. Mindy, you are so cute!

    I have to agree with you, the food journal thing is not my cup of tea either. I missed points the whole second half of last week because I was too lazy to keep track. Unfortunately for me it is a must I just can't stay on track without it.

    Focus on what you can manage and celebrate your successes (good job on the H2O!) I think it is better to do what you can and keep going than get frustrated and give up all together.

  2. I'm with you Mindy, I'm lousy at keeping track. I do it mentally really well not on paper.

  3. You totally make me laugh. Yes, this is the hardest thing to do. I've been trying to keep track on the computer which I think it much harder than just writing it down in a journal. Unless you're eating close to nothing I don't know how you keep track in your head. You may try to figure out a meal but I find when I actually input it it looks a lot different than I thought. sometimes good, sometimes bad.

    hang in there!

  4. I bombed on this one too! In fact it was my first weeks goal so, my points are anything but stellar! Oh well, the key is to keep trying right?

    Thanks for the laugh...by the way, I bet your vitamins are in your kitchen cupboard :)

  5. They were in the pantry, and there were only two left!
