Keeping Track

I'm going to try posting what I eat and what exercise I do. I'm hoping that recording this will help me to stay motivated as well as assist me in really seeing with accuracy what I am doing to my body. I have always been really bad for not eating enough fruits and vegetables nor drinking enough water, plus I think that I consume too many carbohydrates. Unfortunately, I also believe that I live a very sedentary lifestyle. I'm hoping to change these habits starting today. Perhaps seeing it all written down will be a useful tool that I can utilize during this fresh start to my weight loss journey.

- 4 glasses of water throughout the day
- 1 banana
- 6 inch ham and cheese sub on a honey oat bun with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, light mayo, mustard, and pepper
- 2 toasted English muffins with peanut butter
- 1 glass of milk
- 3/4 cup peach yogurt with 1 cup Maple Nut Oatmeal Crisp
- 8 large crackers with 4 pieces of cheese
- 2 hard boiled eggs with calorie wise Miracle Whip
- 1 mini bag of microwave popcorn

- 25 minute walk
