How did you do with your food journal these past few weeks? If you didn’t get a chance to read about food journaling, check it out here, Why you need a food journal(free pdf!).
This is a good time to go over each day and analyze your intake. Is it what you thought it would be? Are there times you saw that you didn’t eat as healthy as you should’ve? What was going on when you ate that way? Were you tired, stressed, bored?
Did you eat enough during the day? How was your water intake?
I would encourage you to try this activity again, this time really thinking about how you are feeling before, during and after eating. It is a good time to make sure you’re eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Many times, we don’t realize that some days, we had not eaten any vegetables at all.
If you feel that you need help with your daily eating habits, please reach out to me so that we can get you on the right track. We will most likely never have a day where we ate perfectly healthy.
For instance, today, my nine year old daughter wanted to make chocolate chip cookies. Then she wanted me to first try the cookie dough and then a cookie. I did eat a small spoonful of cookie dough and one of her cookies. They were delicious! It made her so happy to see me enjoying what she made. Never feel that you have failed eating healthy just because you ate a cookie or six(been there)! It is part of life to enjoy what we eat, but also be cognizant of eating healthy overall.
