The Journaling Continues...

Welp...I did the first 3 day challenge and now I'm on to another 3 days. Only this time - I can't give in to my "let's throw caution to the wind - the diet starts tomorrow" mentality. I've been dragging my feet for too long now. The motivation seemed to wane but I'm ready to kick back into gear again.

So for the next 3 days I will continue to keep my journal. But I'm told to pay special attention to the food categories. To see if I'm lacking in any of those necessary things (like fruits and veggies!) And I also have to look to see if there's a pattern...a certain time of day or occurrence that causes me to nosh absent-mindedly. And~~I have to cut out one fattening thing~~~AND~~~I have to get a little exercise in there.

So as soon as I submit this post I'm going to get my weights and do some lifting. I can't walk because drat! I honest-to-God-really-truly DID break my toe last night! I slammed it into a door and I'm all black and blue and hobbling today. But it was my baby toe so I think it will mend soon.

So what's gonna' be different this time you ask me. Well, I''m asking myself the same question. All I can say is this. I'm committing to writing down every morsel I eat. No matter what. This forced bit of introspection has to do some good. Why else would keeping a food journal one of the most common factors among most all people who have successfully lost weight?
