I’m tracking with Lose It sometimes, too, because it tracks in a slightly different way—just by calories. Just to see patterns.
WW uses a formula for their points. They take not only calories into consideration, but also protein, sugar, and other nutrients to determine point values of foods.
Just looking at calories, I’m wondering if I’m eating enough during the day. I don’t usually feel hungry at the time, but by late afternoon I’m pretty hungry, and late afternoon, when I get home, is often when I start to unravel.
On an average workday, I’m only getting about 500 calories all day, leaving me with 800 calories for the rest of the day. I used to like this a lot, because it meant I had lots of wiggle room for dinner and snacks.
But in reality, in the last year or so, I end up losing control and going way over that limit. One, because I’m not tracking anymore by that time of night. But two, because maybe my budget is unbalanced, and I need to rethink the way I do the day.
Also, this nice lady behind me at the workshop yesterday suggested keeping a snack by my bedside so I don’t have to go downstairs after I’ve already gone to bed. While it’s possible I’ve tried that before, maybe I’ll give it another go.
Allllso, I stopped caffeine at around 1:00 yesterday, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t come down here at all last night. Except at 2:00 a.m., but I didn’t eat anything.
I don’t necessarily want to change too many things at once, because then you can’t tell which change was the effective one if you have any success. So maybe I should just pick one of these things for this week.
Maybe the caffeine. It’s causing me troubles, anyway. A million trips to the bathroom and whatnot. That will mean bringing caffeine free Pepsi to work. But I suppose I can do that. As it is I’m lugging two liter bottles of diet wild Cherry there.
I told you, I have a problem.
I must go now. Have an awesome day, my readers, drive safely, and, from the bottom of my heart, thanks for reading. ❤️ ☺️
