Prelogging my food tracker & menu planning

Something I realized I needed to do in order to be successful was to prelog my food for the whole day, preferably at breakfast and sometimes in bed before I get up.

I pretty much eat the same breakfast M W F, a different breakfast Tu Th, another breakfast on the weekends. My lunches follow a similar pattern. This also helps me create a shopping list.

In my Favorites list on the Food Tracker, I created groupings for these different days and labeled them "Breakfast - MWF", "Lunch - MWF", etc.

Using the Nutrtion and Fitness Tracker

I have used the Nutrition and Fitness tracker each day. When I was on my mini vacation. I was unable to use it. I had no access to a computer. I totally missed it. I felt very lost without it. When I logged on this morning. I felt like I came back to an old friend.

Use it or don't lose it!

Use your blog to motivate you to succeed. You don't have to bare your soul or anything - but if you want and need support - that is a great place to get it.

You choose how much information you share, but it is a good place to keep track of your goals and to plan your path. If you aren't using it and you aren't succeeding - give it a try!

Bright and Early

I get up at 4:30 a.m. for work. Before I even leave the bed I do a few little stretches to help my back trouble. Then I take my shower and then eat a small breakfast to get me going. Then I login to SparkPeople to do my daily spin and log in my breakfast. I go back to my bedroom and do a few jumping jacks and some knee lifts, leg lifts and side kicks to boost my morning energy.

FAST BREAK GOAL TIPS!

When I first signed up for sparkpeople, they ask you to set your fast break goals to get you started. I did this, but I have continued to track them through my journey. I find that I always want to be able to check off those little boxes saying that I am following my plan.

Tracking my Nutrition

I fill in what I've eaten on my nutrition planner right after I eat lunch. I've found that this way, I can keep a close eye on the nutrition values and plan accordingly for my evening meal.
Whether I've eaten more than normal for breakfast and lunch, or not eaten enough, I can work my evening meal plan around all those values, and adjust up or down whether it's carbs, fat or protein. I make adjustments to keep me within my calorie range and keep me satisfied with the foods I've chosen.
