It’s been just over a week since I started my monthly challenge. I decided it was time to start logging all my food again because I have been pretty bad about my eating habits. And I’m pretty terrible about fixing things without some kind of accountability. So what better way to hold myself accountable than to do have a March Challenge: MyFitnessPal Logs Update 1.
One of the hardest things to do is to be completely transparent with all foods eaten, especially when you’re eating like crap. It’s like a big slap in the face every time you have to put that crap food into the log. It hurts a little and you want to crawl in a bucket and hide. The temptation to lie is strong but not worth the wrong results at the end of the month.
I have been eating like absolute crap this first week. I know it, it’s been hard to look at the logs and truthfully put everything up there. However, despite the crap I’ve eaten, I have managed to to also keep my other goal so far. I have not eaten any chocolate or any candy. I haven’t even allowed myself to buy it despite a trip to the Dollar Tree right after starting this challenge.
I would like to say I can blame my crap eating on trying not to go grocery shopping until the new ad came out yesterday, but that’s really nothing but a bad excuse. A lazy excuse. After all, we spent more money eating out instead of just going to the grocery store or using up every last bit of our pantry.
We did get very close to cleaning out most of our pantry. We were pretty much left with canned beans and some soup we stocked up on from everyone getting sick. Not bad, but still could have made it a little longer before resorting to takeout food. Fortunately, we now have gone grocery shopping so this next week should look a lot better.
