The Need for Efficiency

So this morning was day 2 of trying out a new system, and even though I’m sure this part of tracking things will get easier, taking over half an hour to make lunch is just too long especially when it is simply a turkey sandwich with tomato and spinach, some yogurt, a snack of celery and carrots, and a sliced apple. There was the cutting of celery, slicing of tomato, weighing of turkey breast, and scanning a lot of bar codes only to find the app didn’t have half of the foods in its database, and for one of the items it had the wrong information so I still had to enter the information to figure out how much I was allowed to eat. Thank God I bought the bag of carrots so all I had to do was weigh them. ¬†Between it all I was out of bed at about 4:15 this morning, and it was nearly 5 o’clock before the lunches were all ready to go – that’s too long, and it doesn’t even count making breakfast.

And it doesn’t count Milo, our dog, continuing to bark from the upstairs every time I made a noise in the kitchen.

So yes, I’m grumpy this morning, it’s only day 2, but I know this will get easier (I hope), and I know I have to be in this for the long haul if I really want to get to where I want this body to be.
