If you're keeping a Food Diary you'll already know how useful this process is for keeping you on track with your goals.
Like any project, Project YOU needs to be documented so you know where you're at; there's no judgment, blame, or praise involved, just information that you can use to get yourself closer to where you want to be.
For example, you may not realise how little water you drink throughout the day or that you go far too long without food during your busy day, only to come home ravenous and (surprise, surprise!) make poor food choices because of the urgency to eat RIGHT NOW!!!
A Food Diary allows you to look at your habits and choices in a more considered way and to plan strategies for changing what needs to be changed.
- make sure you're having some protein in every meal
- keep a bottle of water with you and refill it at least once a day
- include a variety of vegetables each day & in each meal
- keep track of how much sleep you get; note down bed-time & waking times and notice how this may be affecting your food choices
You're a smart cookie, and once you know where there's room for improvement, think about what YOU can do to change.
You are Getting It Done!!
