Food Journal

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

I usually call this my food journal, but today while I was browsing someone's Spark Page for inspiration, I saw that she stated that she kept a food journal instead of tracking her food here. I was very impressed by her (eating 9-11 servings of veggies/fruits, tracking it as a food journal and not worrying about counting calories, exercising 6 days a week) and I decided to see what was actually a food journal. I always thought it was this right here but she didn't show her food tracking in her blog. I'm probably guessing she did it in Microsoft Word, so I decided to google it and see what's up. The answers were pretty interesting!



I tried that format today and it was alright. It wasn't that great to me and I'm probably gonna try it out for a week to see how I do. If I feel stressed from writing it down from there AND from here, I'm gonna quit. If I succeed, well that's cool! My main goal wasn't from this journal but to be motivated, and it worked. She lost over a 100 pounds within a year and I hope to do that. A really good thing that stuck out was eating more veggies/fruits, and I need to improve on that. So no more eating just 2 servings of each. If I can eat at least 5-7 servings, I'm gonna be good. Let's hope I work on that well this week! emoticon

    emoticon Sounds like you are on the right track. If it gets too hard to do both, just decide which one is easier for you to stick with:)
