"serve it on a shovel or serve it on a spork"

i just sparked my calories for today: 928. i put every thing on there from the candy i just ate to two cups of tea in case i have one this afternoon. and then i put in yesterday's food, with all three olive garden breadsticks and i was still within range. and i almost felt better.

and then i remembered that i haven't touched spark in months. not since i was 185 pounds. so i fixed that and now i have a new calorie range. but breadstick day is still only 11 calories over and since matt actually stole half of one that i counted as whole, i think i'm all set there.

what does all this mean, it's really not my diet. i had thought it wasn't and then i thought well it must be. but it's not. if anything i need to add something. and with their handy dandy reports i know that my protein consumption is not as bad as i thought, and fiber could use some improvement.

all that really makes me happy and i'm pretty glad that i looked it all up. i'm going to try really hard to remember that i like sparkpeople and that i do get something out of tracking my calories. remind me of that when i give it up next week.

When I remember to use Sparkpeople, I usually really like it. Then I get a little overwhelmed since there's so much stuff I can "plug in" to make charts and whatnot. But it can be quite handy.

Hmmm...I will have to check it out. I'm sure the White Chocolate Mocha I buy a couple of times a week from a local coffee shop is way out of my calorie range!

i agree that you can get carried away really easily, and forget that you have a life beyond numbers and calories.

i find most of the time with spark that what i'm eating isn't as bad as i think, it's sort of comforting to know you have room for yummy mochas.
