10/28/15-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 29. October 2014 21:01


 There is a tool that was instrumental in helping me understand how many hidden calories were sabotaging my goals for my fitness goals.

I created a food/workout diary. Each page is broken down into 2 days per page. I took my creation to Kinko’s and had them copy/collate/bind several months of the weekly charts in one book. It cost me about $ 25 per book.

You can buy pre-made ones as well, but I wanted enough room to write detailed journaling of the sections that were important  to me. The top states the date (I usually mark down my daily weight, though that is a personal choice). Then below is the meal chart; breakfast, midmorning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, and dinner (desserts can be charted below dinner).In the upper right hand section of each page (which is blank) I mark down my physical symptoms; if my stomach issues are acting up, if I’m menstruating, if I have a cold or what my energy level was during workout.

 I went to Half Price books and got a calorie/nutrition encyclopedia to look up food info. I already had a food scale to weigh meats in ounces.

 I try to honestly and accurately write down food and drinks (wine, or lemonade is 100 calories for example). I shoot for between 1500 and 1800 calories per day. I calculated this based on my age, exercise input, and body type.

This diary is just for your monitoring, so be honest . It will be a surprising reality when you honestly begin tracking your food/drink intake.
