How many times have YOU done this? I can't even begin to tell you how often I did this when beginning -- or thinking about beginning -- an exercise routine. It could have been easy to do again here recently, because, even though I love the results of my exercise and the attention I've paid to my food intake, I won't lie -- it was kind of nice to have my little self-imposed vacation from it. I know how easy it would have been to plop down every night when I get home and not work out. And logging food is <whine> soooooo haaaaaaaard. Truly, it's not that it's hard, per se -- but if you do it, you are forced to be accountable to yourself. And an entire liter of Bailey's over the course of a day, well... I probably didn't want to know what THAT costs.
