Weight and Learn

A stay-at-home mom learning how to be happy and healthy.

I have been diligently food journaling for over a week now which I’ve never been really good at.  I’ve done it before for short periods of time but not to this extent of honesty.  I use to food journalnot journal on the days I knew I made some bad choices because I felt too guilty to admit it to myself.  This time I’ve approached it slightly different.  I’m not changing my food habits, but merely collecting information so that I can have a true picture of my current eating habits.

After reviewing the first week, it’s amazing how extremely obvious my problems areas are.  I don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables.  I don’t drink enough water and I eat way too many sugary/non-nutritional value foods.  The things I do well are eating reasonable amounts of lean protein and proper amounts of low fat dairy.

I’m still embarrassed at some of the choices I’ve made but admitting them to myself has been good and bad.  When I make a poor choice I feel bad and then when I write it down I feel even worse but writing it down gives me a bigger picture and shows me that a bad choices doesn’t have to ruin a day or week.  My attitude has always been my biggest obstacle.  When I feel good about myself, I make good choices.  When I feel like crap, I make crap choices.

Will making better choices make me feel better or will feeling better help me make better choices?

How to I change my attitude?  Hmm….
