Too many variables – weigh-in for January 28, 2013

English: McDonald's Big Breakfast

Current weight: 330
Difference from last week: 0
Difference this year: -2

Well, that experiment didn’t work very well. Though I can’t blame not having any soda. Instead, it was bad choices in other areas. I switched to a McDonalds breakfast meal plan. Not the wisest move I’ve ever made. I am an idiot: I know what will happen if you have sausage mcmuffins for breakfast. I’m pretty sure I have a previous journal entry about that very thing. Yet I’ve let my breakfast choices be “2 sausage mcmuffin and a medium OJ. Ayup, that definitely won’t get the job done. Unless the job I’m trying is to gain a lot of weight. Then that would be an ideal breakfast!

Hmmm… Slurm, soda or water… (Photo credit: soundfromwayout)

So now my conundrum: should I wait another week before kicking in the next phase of getting on track, or do I re-do the no-soda week, with better choices for breakfast? I can see the pluses and minuses of both.

The next step is to track what I eat. I have an app for my phone called wwdiary. I can use that to keep track of what I eat. Easily. My phone is always within arms length. I have a shortcut for wwdiary on the main screen of my phone. Two taps and I can track what I am eating. I want to give myself a week of doing that, so I can try and get this ingrained in my head.

I really don’t know which way to go. Another week of just skipping soda, or starting tracking while I am also trying to stop eating sodas. Try two different things at the same time? Change two variables for one experiment? Or do I repeating the first experiment before adding in the other. It really isn’t as simple a choice as one would think. I can’t make a choice!!!
