Posts Tagged ‘Food Journal’

Early this morning I had a very intense “come to Jesus” meeting – with myself. Who the heck am I kidding with the food photos! If I don’t feel comfortable publishing them, I won’t. Seriously, I’d rather walk around Walmart in a bath towel than post pics of what I eat for the Universe to see. It might even get me on People of Walmart, which would be a hilarious thing to tell my grandkids.

I’m still going to journal, but I won’t regularly post my food photos because I don’t feel entirely comfortable doing so, and plus I don’t eat the most exciting food in the world. There would be a lot of cut, paste, repeat going on!

So, how’d I do today? Pretty darned good if I do say so myself. I was mindful of my intake, kept away from white flour, and only had a little bit of sugar when I had less than a teaspoon of caramel sauce. I had plenty of fruits of veggies, but took a little step backwards in progress when one of my sisters made this incredible pizza with roasted veggies, cheese, and a white flour crust. I ate 5 square shaped pieces. Damn. Portion control, I will conquer you at some point!

On the plus side, I did get some good walking in when I took my son to the park and did laps around the playground as he ran around. I really should do that more often instead of parking it on a bench and zoning out with my smart phone!
