Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s already Week 6 on the SUBWAY Canada Commit to Fit Challenge! Last week, Carl Savard, the SUBWAY Canada Commit to Fit Ambassador challenged us to keep a food journal. I’ve attempted these in the past and always gave up a few days in. I just forgot to write down what I was eating. This time around, I kept the journal and a pen in the kitchen and jotted down what I ate. I just used a pad of paper and a pen, but I found some cute free food journal printables to download. I’d like to print out a bunch and make a binder.
I’ve had a lot going on personally and have been stressed out. When I’m stressed, I have to force myself to eat. On the plus side, I’ve lost weight. I notice that I am making healthier choices now. I snack on oranges and apples when I’m craving something sweet. I also am eating a lot more salads. I ate a salad almost every day according to my journal.
Here’s a list of a few free printable food journals I found online. I think food journals help keep you accountable and also allow you to see if there is a pattern to your eating habits and cravings. I know that I tend to be hungrier at night and hardly ever feel hungry in the mornings.
Do you currently keep a food journal? Have you ever used one in the past?
