So, some of you had mentioned something about the charts I keep when I do my month end posts.
I will admit, I am a chart nerd.
I am a journal nerd.
I am just plain a nerd.
But my secret it out - I am a bigger nerd then you ever thought.
I blame my Moleskin Journal.
It calls to me. Speaks to my soul.
"Write in me"
So for the past 3 months, I have drawn up a chart, with the thanks of all those little squares keeping me straight & organized, at the beginning of every few days to track my health & nutrition for the day.
Now, I know... I KNOW...
There's apps for that.
I did the MyFitnessPal thing for months. Like MONTHS!
Like I was on a 7 month streak.
but when I went to camp with my youth kiddos & didn't get to log in & that number streak went back to zero - it took a part of me with it.
I'll admit - it didn't really do much good for me anyways.
I couldn't find things, or some of the calorie counts were so different.
Look up a Venti Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks - bet you get at least 5 different calorie counts.
So I made up my own chart.
Where I can write down what I eat.
How much water I drink.
How much coffee or tea I drink.
When I work out - what I do
How I feel... emotionally & physically
& yeah, I don't have things that tell me how many calories I have left in my day, but that's OK
I do have a chart that tells me how many fruits & veggies I ate instead.
More important things to me.
& the best thing to me?
When I get a new page to start a new day.
Nothing like the sense of a fresh start.
Who knows - I may need to reach out to a publisher.
I think I have a winning idea for a journal on my hands.
Do you Journal your 'health' things?
