Food Friday and my first Fitbit fail.

Until recently I hadn’t used the food logging part of the Fitbit. This was in large part due to the fact that I just don’t have time for yet another analytical system, and I knew if I started it would end up becoming yet another thing for me to obsess over.

Or it would just make me hungrier…

I love food
In reality, I eat fairly healthy.  I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and MacGyver and I are careful not to indulge in a lot of unhealthy choices.  But let’s get real for a hot minute because I do love my desserts and I may be a little remiss to log the types and amounts of some of the desserts I like to eat.

ice cream forever

If you eat fast it doesn’t count.

Can you imagine how bad it would look to see a Wendy’s large Frosty with a half bag of reeses mini peanut butter cups on there at least 4 times a week?  Um, yeah, me neither…

Holy shit! I eat a lot. And by a lot I mean all the damn time. I logged my food intake for one day and it was enough to convince me that I shouldn’t log my food intake.

Logging food made me want more food.  And the more I thought about it, the more I had to have it.

french fries

French fries huh???  You mean Sweet Potato fries?

And then I had to go get some…

Yes please!

with marshmallow fluff, of course.

I totally lost track of my thoughts because I just spent 10 minutes writing this post and now I’m hungry…

Obviously, I cannot log my food.  This part of the Fitbit is a fail for me.

Do you keep track of the foods you eat? 

On a scale of 1-10 how healthy is your diet?

  1. If by “track your food” what you mean is “remember what you ate and feel kind of ashamed” then, yes, I track my food! lol

  2. I would say I eat well about 75% of the time and honestly, I believe that is what you need. If you are too focused then you are going to miss out little moments. I logged foods for a little while when my antibiotic was messing up my body but haven’t since.

  3. hhmmm… this is a toughy for me…as i am a serial tracker…of EVERYTHING… so i would definitely say i track what i eat…not for the typical reasons tho.

    I track to know what reactions i might have….digestion, energy, performance, etc.

    I like to know what to expect. Like a dog. I love dogs.

    How’s little one? Is he paw right?

    • LOL, pawright! Love it! And yes, he’s doing well. He got his bandage off but he still has to go to Cone-y Island at night just to keep him from licking and biting and re-opening the wound. Fortunately, he doesn’t mind it too much.

  4. You are hilarious! Thanks for making my day! No I do not track my food and I would say I am about a 7 out of 10 healthy eater.
