Why I don’t track and just started listening to my body!
There is nothing wrong with tracking, I believe it is great for people who have a very certain goal such as competing, wedding, trainer in learning or just a major transformation.
When I first started my journey I tracked everything I ate since I had the time to do so. I carried around my journal and was always ready to write what I was about to eat. I loved doing this because I felt I was learning a lot for my clients as well as myself.
Why I Don’t Track…
- It was great when I wasn’t busy but now that I’m always on the go, I don’t really have time to track and by the time I get home, I cant remember what I ate.
- I use to stress so bad that I didn’t get my numbers in or I didn’t hit my macros and it became an unhealthy habit.
- I prefer to list to my body. When I would eat something, I would see how my body reacts, was I tired? bloated ? full of energy? This method seem to help lean me out a lot more since I was truly listening to my body and not constantly stressing on tracking.
Even though I continue to have my some clients track macros, I was done, I had found something better for myself. Then I started noticing some would cheat more than they were suppose to because it fit their macros or some clients would stress about not hitting numbers so I finally put a stop to it and told them about my new method of journaling.
I refuse to let my clients stress about the little things in life. Being healthy mentally is just as important as being healthy physically!
