How many times you pick up a snack or an extra serving or two without even realizing it.
It brings awareness to your behavior patterns that you may not even realize you’re stuck in.
You may find this journaling annoying at first, but after a while you will find it a very helpful tool. I did it for years and still go back to it when I fall off track or need a change.
It forces you to look at yourself and not ignore yourself.
I find that when I organize my nutrition my life seems to organize itself around it and things that seemed chaotic or confusing fall into place. In a magical way It puts order into chaos and suddenly I find myself back on track, achieving my goals, discovering new things & overall felling better about myself : )
May I suggest a little notebook that fits into your bag and can go along with you.
Each page is a day. You log your entries by the time of day you eat & exercise
What you ate at the meal & how much. And even write a note about how you are feeling, thoughts or inspirations that come to mind. Write everything down even if it doesn’t belong in your meal plan. This forces you to look at it, deal with it and correct it or eliminate it.
It’s amazing how you will start to edit your behavior and find that you can improve yourself a little every day just by bringing awareness to it.
Every step you take leads you to a better you. Make them count.
In peace, health & with much love,
