I stopped obsessively counting calories a good while ago (eating clean rarely calls for such an act), but lately, with my schedule being so packed, I know I’ve been eating on the go a lot more, and snacking between meals more than usual; while that may be fine when you’re actively burning over 1,200 calories a day, I like to nip such things in the bud before they become more than just a situational habit—particularly when I know that some of the food choices I’m making aren’t good ones.
Fitness, for me, especially where food is concerned, is a never-ending battle between what I know I should do, and what I actually end up doing; and, I’ll be honest, I don’t always get it right, but the trick is to remain prescient enough to see the storm brewing before it gets to the point of actually destroying all the hard work.
I know I’ve gotten off track (somewhat due to a hectic schedule and somewhat due to my wanting to put on a bit more mass for muscle building purposes, but mostly due to stress and laziness in the kitchen), and I’m beginning to feel and see the results of it; so I’m taking action now before things begin to get out of hand.
Do I like calorie counting? No, at this stage I deplore it because I know better. But, 100% of fitness is accountability…and this is where mine has to start.
