Naked to the world

My eating habits, at least.

I've taken up a challenge posted by The Amazing Shrinking Mom and posting my food intake on Fit Day for all the world to see.

My Fit Day Journal

Read it. I'll do the weeping.

It's helping keep me honest, and also helping me see a better breakdown of where I'm spending my POINTS. (And no, I don't know why they always write it in all caps. They just do.)

For instance, if you'd seen yesterday's journal, you'd now be keen to the fact that I ate half a chicken at a church cookout yesterday.

(Yes, you read right. Half a chicken. That's the problem with those leg quarters. Eat two of them, and you've downned half the bird. I'm not proud.)

Anyway, Mel (The Amazing Shrinking Mom herself) has challenged her readers to post to Fit Day for 10 days. We're on day 5. I can't believe I've stuck with it this long!

I'm also using Diet Facts to help me find nutritional info for some of the foods I'm eating. It's pretty awesome.

Maybe I'll do a little Melz World Challenge of my own - anyone game?

Okay, today's food list doesn't look horrible. That's really great that you're able to keep track of your caloric intake everyday. Keep up the good work!

Thanks - after the half-a-chicken incident, I figured I'd better mind my P's and Q's!
