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

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
- String Cheese and almonds
(Workout - 45 minutes on Ellpitical)
- Chicken Kabobs with pineapple, eggplant, potatoes and a side of asparagus
- last 4oz of smoothie
~ 100oz. water

  1. 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!!
