When my face starts to breakout, I know I'm not eating right. For the past few weeks, on any given day, I'm either eating really healthy, or really unhealthy.
So...I've decided to keep a food journal. I want to track the things I eat, so I can see my trends, and start to make smarter choices.
I'm not going to share every entry on the blog, but I will share select days so you guys can be my accountability partners.

My day started off great. It began with a large oatmeal with granola, blueberries and brown sugar. This was a pretty healthy start!
For lunch, I kept it pretty light. I knew from an earlier email at work, that there would be free food later on that day. I ended up going to a sushi spot near my job and had eight pieces of shrimp tempura.
When the free food at work came it was so hard to resist all the pastries, but I did. I ended up having two triangular turkey sandwiches. I also opted to have a cup of Sprite which was the only thing I had to drink all day.
For dinner, we ordered takeout and I got fried chicken wings with white rice and garlic broccoli. This was my worst meal of the day. I tried to redeem myself by drinking several cups of water after this.
Overall, I had a pretty decent day. I think my weakest point was when I got home. If I don't cook, there aren't many healthy options in my neighborhood to choose from. The best choice I made was the oatmeal. It had tons of fiber and the blueberries were an added treat.
So, yeah, that was my entry. It's pretty short and straight to the point. I try to take pictures of everything I eat throughout the day. I keep my journal on my phone in my notes, but some people have a book they dedicate to this. If you're fancy, you can count calories and even incorporate portion control.
