My breakfast this morning. Beehoon, fish slice soup = 349 kcal according to Nutrition.com.sg.
It doesn't look tasty in the picture but believe me it's delicious in reality. It's just that the food picture was taken by a super amateur photographer. ;p
I suppose to journal everything I eat, every single one. I heard many times how food journaling helps to cut down on mindless munching. But I hate counting calorie. There are times when I find it fun and there're other times when I was simply feeling unmotivated. I used to update my journal during the evening and it's hard to remember what I ate. Sometimes I get confuse with the portion and I can't get my measure right. For example, a bowl of beehoon soup could be anything from small bowl to medium bowl, depending on the size. And of course in that vague ingredient, the calories could be 100 or 1000! One more thing, I cook a lot at home and I don't want to be bothered with weighing and measuring foods.
Do you use a food journal to keep track of what you eat? Do you use an actual paper journal or do you go digital?
Next is Non-Scale Victory. I challenge myself with this Non-Scale Victory Challenge last week. So, here are my progress this week.
NSV Challenge #1: Go to bed early and wake up early in the morning.
The reason why I want to wake up extra early every morning is because devotions first thing in the morning is perfect as this is the least likely time of day for an interruption. Morning is also a great time to have some workout. I still find myself to be a night owl. But I keep trying to get up a little earlier. Though I can't met a morning workout this week because I always woke up late, I still manage to squeeze exercise into my day. I keep the kids busy with a cute Android games, while I get my exercise done. Where there's a will, there's a way.
NSV Challenge #2: 10,000 steps every day
|Track of the day: My highest score on pedometer so far. Photo taken with super lousy camera phone|
NSV Challenge #3: Eating clean for 7 days
My eating was not 100% clean. I have fried noodle and fried rice most of the days because it's the easiet recipe I can prepare. But I haven't had fast foods in a week, except for 2 or 3 time I allow myself to indulge on instant noodles because I have a strong cravings for it. I always have carb cravings before my period. That's why I said it was not 100% clean, but I'm working on it!
I want to add NSV Challenge #4 for this week - Stop eating at least 3 hours before bed.
So now it's your turn...
1. Do you use a food journal to keep track of what you eat?
2. Do you meet your goals this week?
