My Fit Day journal is back up and running and it will stay that way as much as possible. Over the last five months I have definitely learned what is a proper portion size and how to shop "clean" at the store. However, writing down everything you eat is a great way to get back on track if you have been floundering a bit. I'm sure we are all in need of a bit of help after the holidays no matter how good you are on a regular basis about your diet.
I don't think it is necessary to weigh, measure and write down everything you put in your mouth all the time. I do think it is a great way to figure out what you are doing wrong and right. If you feel like the holidays just destroyed your diet, then keep a journal for the next two weeks. It will keep you mindful of what you are putting into your body. You'll think twice before snapping a cookie in half and telling yourself "it is just half a cookie!". Trust me, I am as guilty of that as anyone...and one half of a cookie can turn into about four full cookies in no time.
Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the other food driven holidays are over. No more excuses. Take the new two weeks and be diligent. I will be too. Keep tabs on what I'm doing through my Fit Day journal in the sidebar. All comments and criticisms are welcome.
Happy New Year!
