How do I feel about journaling my food?
I don't like it. I didn't have lapband surgery to have to journal.
And I never really did for the first 160 pounds I lost. Oh, I would get a wild hair every now and then and journal online....but that would last as long as a...as long as something very short.
But, in effort to really see what I have been eating, I started journaling this month. It will not be something I continue for long. But it has been interesting. To journal accurately, it means that I have to measure my food and know my serving size. No more pouring granola in a bag and questimating if it's a cup. No more tossing cheese into a dish and saying, "oh...that's about 100 calories".
It's been a good lesson.
Karin posted her system for journaling. Here is a picture of my little journal. I keep track of my calories expended during exercise as well.
And that's that. Not too exciting. But I wanted to share.
