Today marks the 600th day I’ve kept a food log. Yep, 600 days. Not all in a row – there was a few months in there that I either didn’t care or couldn’t or what not. But it’s been the best way I’ve found to eat better.
The first time I tried it was for a health class that I took by correspondence in high school. I think I took the class via correspondence because I was otherwise overbooked. It was pretty easy stuff, but for one unit I had to write down everything I ate. Wow, does that change things. (Being held accountable will do that.) I’ve been applying that logic for 600 days now! (With regular off days, of course. Everything in moderation, of course, including moderation.)
