Lifestyle Makeover: 4 days of honest meals

Thursday, August 16, 2012

When you come off of one of those "uh-oh" weekends, the best 2 things I can recommend you doing are (1) relax & (2) regroup.  I happened to do this by nipping my laissez faire attitude in the bud and focusing on the little details that are fueling my body.  I notice that although I start off the week a little "bad," it usually doesn't take me much to get back on track.  By recording everything I consume, this allows the realization of how good // bad I was set in...  And by not wanting to be judged by myself & others, this serves as a good little check! 

Warning, a few of these meals / snacks aren't pretty.  Evidence of said behavior seen here:


HOWEVER, I've also collected this:

Questions for YOU:
[1] Do you have a food journal or would you ever consider beginning one?
[2] If you have used one before, has it been as big an eye-opener as mine usually is for me?

Its never to late to get back on track! Its so easy to get off the track on weekends! Its like subconsciously we think every aspect of our lives gets a break. Great meals!

My trainer is having me start a food journal. Mostly because she wont be seeing me for 3 months and wants me to stay on track. I am interested in seeing how well this goes, as well as a little nervous that she will be seeing all of it!

I am thinking about adding a food journal into the mix! Do you think yours has really helped??

Traci said...

Keeping a food journal is sometimes essential for me to keep on track because with my son sometimes I just mindlessly eat without even realizing what I am doing! I am so busy with him that it goes right over my head. I may have to use yours as inspiration!

Katie said...
