Food 4 a Year – Day 1

I have been reading an interesting book by Tony Horton, architect of many fitness routines, the most famous perhaps being P90X (bring it).  One of the disciplines he espouses is keeping a daily food journal of everything you eat and drink.  Also, he suggests keeping notes about how you slept, what exercise you did (or didn’t), how you feel, etc.  His theory is that as you journalize you will not only have a historical road map of where you come, you develop great discipline habits.  Works for me….I thought about waiting until Match 1, to start at the beginning of the month, but, why wait???

p.s.   this is NOT about counting every calorie…thank jah I have lost the need to do that any more….it is more about having a solids frame of reference for where I have been, where I am and where I want to go…
