Food Journal

Think of what you eat in a day...Food journaling helps me when I am dieting cause I tend to "graze." If I have to write it down then I am less likely to pop it in my mouth. Here is what I had yesterday...

Breakfast: 1 1/2 sausage egg biscuits from Mcdonalds and a large sweet tea

Lunch: 10 boneless buffalo wings from KFC and a large sweet tea from McDonalds

Snack: Can of Coke

Dinner: 2 Honey mustard snack wraps and a large sweet tea

Snack: Grandma's Fudge Chocolate Chip cookie and a coke

(Someone revive Mechelle...she just passed out!)LOL! I am a bad girl.
Now this is not a typical day because I was on the road ALOT yesterday...but I tend to eat out ALOT (not every meal of the day like today though) and I don't go for the healthiest of menu items.

What did you have to eat yesterday?

Each week you will have a chance to share a day of food journaling...this will give us ideas of new things to try instead of the "same old thing."

i agree - anytime i have done a food diary/journal/whatever you want to call it, i have noticed i eat better and in smaller portions. it makes you accountable!

however, i got sick of being accountable after a week!! but i did lose 3 lbs that week - and with NO exercise!

you are inspiring me... i am in my brother's wedding on may 16 - heck, better late than never to start dieting, right?! haha

oh, and yesterday i had:
B: coffee w/cream & sugar, blueberry bagel w/butter
L: southwest salad from mcd's...and a coffee w/4 creams & 4 sugars (don't judge) and cinnamon melts for dessert. like how i got a salad, and then blew it on dessert?!
D: a little bowl of cheese dip and 'hint of lime' tostitos and a coke. not the healthiest, but also not a big portion

and NO snacks?? how did i manage that?!

So brave you are, especially considering the day you had! I have days like that sometimes, though not lately cuz we are always broke, lol! I don't remember what I had on Tuesday, but I am willing to bet it wasn't good, lol!!
