Food Journal… another attempt that will stick for a few weeks at least!

12 Jun

Well, I tried food journaling a few weeks ago and that didn’t last but maybe a day…. However, now I’m on a new diet and I’m trying to remember what I’ve been eating so I don’t go overboard on something or get burned out so let’s try food journaling again…

Here’s week one on the diet:
Monday
– Smoothie (Banana, strawberries, low-fat yogurt, 1% milk, Whey Protein)
– Cottage Cheese
– Turkey Sandwich with 2% Swiss on a Whole Grain Roll, an apple

~ 100oz. water

    I’ve been food journaling for months. I bought a $1 journal at Michael’s that fits in my purse :). It’s hard to do for the first couple weeks but after, it becomes a routine. 🙂 Best of luck with it!!
