Food tracking

There are three modules part of the Nerd Fitness Academy (NFA): Mindset, Nutrition and Workouts. The mindset module I’ve done several quests for already and the workouts I’m just starting to take a look at this week. The Nutrition module feels like the easiest one for me. I mean, I know what is good to eat and what is not. I’m fully aware of calories in/out, portion sizes etc. I also know what food my body do not appreciate and limiting those makes both my stomach and my joints happier.

The food tracking quests are all related to keeping a daily food log and writing down or taking pictures of everything you eat. Two of the quests I finished quickly as it only required keeping a log for 3 and then 7 days. As of August 1st I’m now working on the 30 day log. I’m writing everything on a piece of paper, the most convenient would be to have an app on my phone but all apps I’ve found turns to counting calories… 😦  I’ve done that before, several years ago, and I don’t like that kind of tracking. Yes, I did loose weight and it’s a good way to start when trying to be aware of what you eat, but at this point in my life I’m not interested in counting every single calorie I put in my mouth.

As I’m a person who love taking photos of food and sharing on Instagram I’m really looking forward to the next food tracking quest which is sharing a daily food log for 14 days. I don’t want to work on too many quests at the same time so that quest will have to wait until the 30 day quest is over. 🙂 Obviously I’m still going to post food pics on Instagram… I can’t help myself… 😉 If I eat something good, or visit a restaurant, or just figure out a nice way to present a meal in a photo I will share it not matter a quest or not!
