If you aren’t a first time reader, you probably know I keep a food journal. You probably also know I’m fairly inconsistence with it now (mostly because I’m not losing, I’m maintaining). What you don’t know is that I almost always start my day journaling. Breakfast and lunch are easy meals for me. However, dinner and nighttime snacking are are another story. As a result I have TONS of half day journals. TONS!
What ends up happening is I don’t want to face the journal. I get lazy, and honestly I don’t feel like seeing my indiscretions on paper. That makes them all too REAL.
Tonight I decided not to turn my head to my momentary lapse of judgment. I need to be accountable for my total disregard of full stomach signs while indulging in fatty, cheesy, carb-y goodness, purely for the taste of it.
SO here it is, my un-abandoned food journal. It may not be correct, I estimated, but I don’t think it matters. I know what I ate, I know how much of it I ate and it’s CONSCIOUS! Something I think is very important in diet and in life.
|egg muffins with turkey breakfast sausage||5|
|Overstuffed Sausage and Pepper Wrap||4|
|Banana Split (Chocolate Breyers Free, small banana, handful of berries)||3|
|cheese stick and some cherry tomatoes from the garden||2|
|Stuffed Shells (~6-7), peas and about 3 pieces of garlic bread loaded with butter (totally overboard – estimate)||20|
|Dark Chocolate Raisinettes (the whole box) Total impulse buy, I was tired, driving and craving something sweet – not a good combination)||8|
|Bootcamp (1.86 miles run in 18 minutes! VERY HILLY! Ab work) Lower Body weights|

So I have a few questions this week. First, do you food journal? If so do you face it no matter what? Or do you run from it like an 8th grader that burns his failed math test so he doesn’t have to show his parents. (Where did THAT metaphor come from?!?) Anyway, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
