Taking it to the next level

So my just one day experiment is going really well. It is changing my attitude and my views on a lot of things. I am most definitely an all or nothing type person. When something would go wrong in a day I would throw out the whole day, sometimes even the whole week. But by looking only at one day or even one meal, I have a much more balanced view of things and not so extreme. It is definitely working. It is now time to add on to this. Starting tomorrow I'm going to track all my food for one day. Just one day. I have an idea of what I'm eating but I'm beginning to believe I'm fooling myself. I have this cool app on my phone for logging food. It has a bar code scanner or a data base where you just click here to enter food. It is time to get the real answers. So for one day I'll track food.

Friday night was circuit night at the gym and all I can say is, Oh! My! God! Not only did the workout kick my butt, it kicked my butt the next day too. I did the circuits and by the time I got home I was so hungry I would have eaten a live animal. After dinner and a shower, I sat down to watch TV and I was out. Quickly and completely asleep. Saturday morning I got up and went to the strength class. I decided to up my weights and really get a workout. By the time I was done I was starving again. I had breakfast but knew it wasn't going to last. I spent most of the day hungry. Unfortunately, I ate a bit much of junk food. I bought candy corn and munched on it on and off all day. Not the best food to fuel my body - which is why I need to track my food for one day. I was also very, very tired yesterday. That circuit workout really kicked my butt....Awesome!!!!
