I want you! To keep a food journal.

Who is having an awesome day? Maybe it's that first cup of coffee I had in 6 weeks yesterday, but I am having a great day. I want to offer everybody out there a chance to join in the challenges I am giving my boot campers. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I will be issuing challenges. Now they get the opportunity to win prizes, so I can't offer you that. I can offer you ways to improve your fitness and weight levels.  So if you would like to participate, feel free to join in. Our first challenge is to keep a food journal. I'm always talking about food journals, because they work. People underestimate how many calories they are taking in by 40%.  The rules are, if you bite in you write it. Even the BLTs (Bites, Licks, and Tastes) are included. Everything you eat or drink that has calories, you record it. You can use pen and paper, but I recommend using an on-line resource such as www.fitday.com. Just click on what you ate and it stores it for you. This is a very effective way to become more aware of what you are putting in your body. Prepare to be shocked if you've never done this before.  Good luck and I hope you can join us!
