This week, we’re going to focus on food. Some of you may feel like you’re making pretty good food choices already and don’t feel like you overindulge. But I’m guessing some of you may feel that overeating (or bad choices) is one of your biggest challenges when it comes to health and fitness. My challenge for you this week is to keep a daily, written food journal of everything you eat. I found lots of printables for a food journal on the internet.
Keeping a food journal helps us to know exactly what we’re eating and when. Tracking this information will help you to better understand your eating habits and make you really think before you eat something. You’ll be able to see how much you’re eating throughout the day, and if there are specific patterns to your eating habits – do you eat a snack at 3pm every day because you’re hungry, or just because you feel like it? Do you have a sugary dessert after every meal? These are important things to recognize and keeping a food journal is the best way to track your own personal eating trends and ensure you’re getting the right nutrients for a healthy, balanced diet each day.
Only one challenge left next week! Until then, good luck and don’t drop the previous challenges! Add the new one to the mix!
