Meal logging is something that I’ve done in the past, but don’t do much anymore. Taking my sister’s course about health has given me the incentive to start thinking about different ways to keep myself honest about my meals.
Over the past week, my diet has been a mixed back. Last Thursday was Thanksgiving and I ate like most households in America. Lots of protein, sugar, carbs, fats, and well-seasoned vegetables. And I ate leftovers until Sunday evening.
Throughout the week, I’ve been committed to eating well. My job brings catered lunch daily and their menu can be found here. This meal plan has served as my lunch and dinner with the excepted of buying a chicken gyro from a fast-casual restaurant yesterday.
My goal is to continue to make smart choices about food. I love the way that my body feels after eating a healthy meal. During the weekdays, it’s vital that I eat smart. A bad meal can mess up my productivity for the rest of the day. That’s why I consider diet so serious. On days where you’re relaxing, a cheat meal may not hurt as much in the grand scheme of things. When you have stuff to get done, it can make completing tasks difficult.
I’m glad that I’ve been challenged to reflect on my meal choices. It’s kept healthy eating at the front of mind. Now, it’s time to continue that tempo.
