May’s Challenge: Daily Food Diary

In the month of April I successfully posted a single blog every day for the whole month! Yay!  Now I still plan on blogging once a day but on the side I’ve decided to take on a new challenge for the month of May.  Every day (all day) I will write down what I eat.

Why do I want to journal what I eat?  I want to do this because I know it will make me aware of what I am eating and how often I am eating.  It will make me consciously aware of what I’m consuming.  
I will not post it on this blog on the daily basis because I think the work would be redundant. Besides, why would anyone care what I ate every day?  However, I will include what I’ve eaten so far at the bottom of this post simply because I’m talking about it.  
Overall my aim is to eat healthier foods on the regular basis so I’m not going to drive myself crazy by counting my calories or anything like that.  I’m just going to watch my portions and opt out on high fat contents as much as possible. They say it’s not healthy to lose more than 2-3 lbs a week so by March 31, hopefully I will lose 8-12 lbs.  Wish me luck! 😉
