Lessons from my food journal

Monday, October 01, 2012

So I've been keeping my food journal on paper. Last week I learned that when I don't eat a good lunch I'm snacking the rest of the day!
Also when I eat supper early, as I have to on certain days... I want to snack all night. Solution is to have a healthy snack (or small fourth meal) a little later to ward off those late night snacks!!
This week I sat down and logged my food in on SparkPeople for the week... It started out okay, but by weeks end... oh my! How could I have consumed so many calories on one day!! So this week I am going to try to not only keep my journal, but also to log it at least daily so I can avoid those calorie pitfalls!! Here's hoping!

    emoticon That is AWESOME!! Anyone who Doubts the Value of the Nutrition Tracker - or Keeping a Food Journal, period - needs to talk to a Spark Person.

    When I get away from tracking for a while I'm always shocked at how poorly I'm eating...but at least we have the opportunity to get right back on track.

    Nice realizations and the ability to "course correct". You can do it!
