I have heard that keeping a food journal helps with weight loss as it holds us accountable for every bite we take. I've never done it before, but if I'm going to be serious about losing the weight and getting healthier, I think I need to pull out the big guns.

I've never kept a food journal. I'm not sure how good I'll be at remembering to write down every single thing I eat, but hopefully it will become a habit.

I got this super cute notebook from the $1 bin at Michael's, so now I guess I just need the courage to post about it here.

So, without further ado, here's what I ate yesterday:
Bowl of cereal- half regular granola, half French Vanilla Almond granola in 2% milk
1 banana
2 slices of cinnamon toast on Milton's multi grain
1 mug of Chai Tea latte
1 Vitamin Water
Spaghetti and meatballs- turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's on wheat pasta
1 dinner roll
1/4 - 1/2 cup of chocolate caramel trail mix from Henry's

Since feeling hungry is my major road block (and my insane sweet tooth) , I bought a few bars I can keep in my car and purse.

If these help, I will definitely stock up on the Odwalla's the next time they are 10 for $10. And yes, I bought chocolate ones. Baby steps people, baby steps.
