This week my goal is to track all of my food. I have been using Weight Watcher's Points Plus system. Oh, no. I don't pay for it. I found some free sites from a blog called Freckleberry Finds. She had a blog post about free WW calculators.
I did Weight Watchers years ago. I lost 50 lbs doing it, too. My problem was that I would still binge right after the weigh in and then spend the rest of the week trying to drop extra pounds. I never really grasped the whole healthy eating for the long haul until I started to take running a bit more seriously. What I eat directly affects the way I feel while running, so I had to eat (relatively) healthy.
I needed something different to get me excited about logging my food again. I had been using Spark and still use it to log my fitness, but I had really fallen out of logging my food. So, I thought maybe using WW would make it fun again.
I started yesterday and logged everything. I get 32 points a day. I was right on until Kevin brought a giant baked potato home with melted butter, sour cream, and shredded cheese on it for me. Yes, I could have said no, but obviously I have a problem with self control. I ate it and it was delicious. And then I had some sherbet ice cream. And some hot chocolate. So, I used 24 extra points!
Here is my workout schedule for the week:
Tues: Run 3
Wed: Speed Work 5x400s (Depending on the ice situation)
Thurs: Run 3
Sat: Run 3
Sun: Run 5
Do you track your food? If yes, then how?
