I've always concentrated more on eating clean than counting calories but keeping track of what I do helps me make sure I don't skip a meal or eat crap when I'm busy because I don't want to have that in my journal. I'm either too honest....or too OCD to lie and/or leave something out, whatever it is, it makes me want to be better. I use MyFitnessPal because you can set your own goals instead of trying to stay within some impossible range based on a BMI. I also use a separate app to track my water, Hydro Coach. Again, I can adjust my settings so i get just enough reminders so I don't get dehydrated but not so many that I want to throw my phone across the room. These tools help me remember that I'm important and it's important to think about what I put into my body. When you spend your days thinking about everything your kids need, sometimes you forget about yourself. But, what my kids need is me and if I don't take care of me, I won't be the mom that they need.
So, the journey continues.....
