Jocelyn's Daily Check-In

Counting carbs/calories is a drag. Obsessive scale stepping is a recipe for despair. If you want to count something, "days on habit" is a much better metric. Checking off days on a calendar would do just fine, but if you do it here you get accountability and support. Here's how. Start a new topic in this forum called (say) "Your Name Daily Check In." Then every N day post a "reply" to that topic as to whether you stayed on habit. A simple "<font color="green">SUCCESS</font>" or "<font color="red">FAILURE</font>" (or your preferred euphemism if that's too harsh) is sufficient, but obviously you're welcome to write more if you want. On S-days just register that you're taking an S-day. You don't have to do this forever, just until you're confident you've built the habit. Feel free to check in weekly or monthly or sporadically instead of daily. Feel free also to track other habits besides No-s (I'm keeping this forum under No-s because that's what the vast majority are using it for). See also my <a href="/habitcal/">HabitCal</a> tool for another more formal (and perhaps complementary) way to track habits.

Hello, May I ask you what brand of Greek yogurt you're using? the crumbled granola bar sounds interesting. Is the almond butter a sweetener? I have no experience with that. Sorry for all the ??'s.

Hello,
The Greek yogurt that I use is plain Fage 2%. I like crumbling granola bars on top of yogurt as they are portable and easy to take to work. Any soft and/or chewy granola bar would work. Almond butter is like peanut butter, but made with almonds. :)

You have really good lunches. My lunches are always something random as I am scavenging the kitchen for enough things to put on a plate to make a meal. Usually like a peanut butter bagel and yogurt and fruit. Sometimes I get lucky and there are dinner leftovers.
