Tracking fail

I felt like I had eaten too many snacks yesterday, but my calorie-counting app showed I was still under my calories for the day. "Wow," I thought, "This is really getting easier."

Then I realized I had completely skipped tracking breakfast. Oops.

I have to get better at planning for long teaching days like yesterday, so I don't snack all day long.

On a lighter note, this portion control expert takes me back to my Weight Watcher days:

  1. Do you track after you eat, or in advance where you can? I find (though I don't always DO it) that recording what I plan to eat the night before helps me frame the day. That way I know how much wiggle room I have for snacks, swapping out a meal for something else (unplanned lunch out with friends, etc.). Otherwise I tend to leave stuff out because I forget. Curious how you do it :)

  2. Almost always after. And often I forget until hours later.
