Journal progress

Today Bobby and I started back on the South Beach Diet. (Well we modify it just slightly.) I am excited to actually be back on a diet. Sometimes I just get so sick of eating poorly and it's nice to eat well and feel better.

Today I also started a progress journal of my day of eating and exercising. I have done this before and it is great because you really hold yourself accountable and it works!

Everyday I have decided to write down:
Vitamins or any medication I take
Everything I mean everything I put in my mouth that day
I also keep track of how much water I intake daily too
How I feel that day - energy level? Any headache, stomach ache, etc.
Also, any exercise that I do that day.

Today was a good day exercise wise. Bobby and I went on a bike ride on the trail behind our house. It was fun and somewhat challenging. Then I tried my new yoga video I just got. (I just tried a few segments of it.)

I ate well today too, it was a good first day!!!

I think I need to try South Beach...I'll check the library for a book.

Good job exercising today :)

Your really should try it. With any diet it's definitely a love/hate thing, but this one works! I was down 20lbs in almost 3 months. Too bad I went back to eating not so healthy and put some of it back. Oh well it's a new day!

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions about it. ;0)

I officially decided to write down everything I'm eating right now. Thanks for the inspiration! Of course, I can't do the South Beach diet because I'm too lazy. I'm going to start with portion control and cutting down snacks/candy. That's really what it is for me. If it' in front of me, it won't be in about five minutes. Dangit.

Great job on writing down everything!! It's hard to do but so will see amazing results if you are always making an effort to eat better! Of course we have to allow a few slip ups every now and then. Good luck I want to hear how it goes!
