What is your biggest challenge being accountable to fitness and nutrition everyday? For me its tracking food and drinking water. As usual this week I have planned my meals out – still working towards a vegan lifestyle and I am using my smart phone to set alarms to help me drink water. I get busy during the day and pretty soon the day is out and I have had 1 maybe 2 glasses. How are you supposed to drink 6 more glasses in the evening without waking up all night to use the restroom? I need to space it out better so I will be having 1 glass as soon as I wake up, one with my mid-morning snack, one to two with lunch, one with my afternoon snack, one to two with dinner and one to two with my workout. Hopefully eventually it will be second nature but until then – I need to schedule it. Also, as I am not a fan of water, I stocked up on a few things that help me like water more; lemons, cucumbers and oranges. Sometimes a little something in my water helps me want to drink it.
Also, I am keeping my meal plan on the refrigerator as usual but also at my desk this week. This will help me keep up with entering it in either Lose it or Fitday. I usually use Fitday but a friend asked me about lose it so I thought I would give it a try to see what it was like.
