My first week was not the best. Drank a lot of soda and ate a lot of fast food. Made big improvements this week.
I am a little embarrassed to admit this but when I did the calculations I drank upwards of 2,800 calories and 765 grams of sugar worth of soda. That was very eye opening and forced me to change my habits immediately. Instead of drinking soda, I had green tea. This cut my sugar and calorie intake by half. Like I said, I enjoy my sweets and love having something sweet to drink when I eat lunch. Tea is better than soda I suppose.
A lot of research has been done on goals, goal setting, accomplishing goals etc. A big factor in accomplishing ones goals is to write them down! My goal with this blog is to eat healthier and get in better shape. By writing down my food intake every day and posting about it, it is helping me be accountable to healthy eating.
