Timely topic for me @jamcnewman and great post!!! This month for me is all about honestly tracking my grazing calories. Now there are many times I pick at food and guesstimate it or dnt track it cos I rationalise the behaviour by telling myself that I dnt count my exercise calories or I hve calories left over so it shld be fine. Last night I cut a piece of my fave cake for hubby and i as a treat. I measured out my 100g with a side of low fat ice cream but found myself mindlessly picking at the whole cake! It wasn't a great deal of picking but wen i reflect on wat I was doing and thinking at the time, I was basically cheating as i didnt weigh as I knew it wld put me over my calories. Pretty sneaky right! Ha ha! So yesterday will be a big fat pass for me. The good news is I will learn from this experience.. I hve learnt my will power is at its lowest at night time so I am going to measure out my 100g this morning and hve hubby come with me to grab it from the fridge so I dnt pick at his or the rest of the cake while prepping it. I hve also learnt cake and lasagne are the 2 foods that i hve no self control over.. I just cant help but pick at it! Sounds crazy I know but if I want to hve my cake and eat it too I need to ensure I am putting strategies in place were I dnt fail. Picking at a cake while prepping it is such a waste of a pass!!! Xox

I was so annoyed with myself that I couldn't post before going to bed. I am a yes for calories and tracking:
Calories under: YES
Tracked all: YES
after working a long long day I jumped into a shower, only to then realise as I slomped onto the lounge that I hadn't managed to fit in 30 minutes exercise.. by which time it was dark and raining and I was already showered. So no exercise, which is a stupid way to have to declare a pass day.
I also like the initial post - entering ahead the dinner I know I will consume definitely helps curtail any sneaky snacks or at least change them to carrot sticks or a banana.
(an annoyed 1/3 pass days used due to above exercise issue)
