Hello everyone...I fell off my food journal ...so back on today.  It's been a confusing week for me emotionally and busy with furbaby sitting.  I am taking care of my oldest daughters 2 cats for the week...they're fun and they entertain each other running all night long it seems.  So sleep and routine are disturbed which cause me to  not plan my food out well and ran out of time.  Work was more stressful than usual and it got me all stressed  emotionally all this added up to me snacking in the evening once I got home at 8pm;  which I have been very good at NOT doing for a while now.   I was good and stayed away from eating too many sugars (and no white sugar or fruits) just protein and carbs but still.  I don't feel well this morning.

I find journalling so helpful;  when you right it out you can see how things effect you, then you can see triggers to avoid.  If it's just in my head and I think about it I don't see it.  

I did go for a walk with my youngest daughter last night we are getting into a routine of 2 to 3 times a week after work and I also was given a stationary bike  on Tuesday which I have started to use....both of these are helping me get my mobility back and I am hoping to start hiking this summer.

Well as I said back to it...plan my food and pack it!  drink lots of water (starting now ) and right it down and count it out.  Read my lables count my S/C no estimating :-)


  1. Sorry things are stressful - but I understand. I hope things get easier. Have a great day :-)

  2. you can do it! Do you have a favorite way to journal? Once upon a time for me it was a paper journal, but now it's online, because I have so much more information at my disposal. Pick a method, and make it a game. Give yourself a star if you journal your food correctly, and a reward if you get 5 to 7 stars in a week. Or whatever motivates you.

  3. If it makes you feel better, I only made it 3 days before I forgot to journal on paper. I do use myfitnesspal every day. Every day that you keep going it will get easier to just be a "way of life". I found for me it was really good that I eat the same things all the time, because I always know what their s/c value is. Boring maybe, but at least I have a good idea where I am.
    Keep at it!
    I can't imagine 2 cats! It took quite some time before our Kitty realized she was supposed to sleep through the night. She would always walk back and forth through the mini blinds or paw the stereo speaker until we would chase her out of the room!
    Good luck and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Maybe you can make the chocolate minute muffin for the evenings, which is really more like a chocolate cupcake without the frosting. You can enjoy something yummy and healthy and keep those trigger foods at bay all at the same time.
