A friend and I did the whole 30 together, an amazing journey I will talk about in another post. So my friend, we will call her my whole 30 friend-I may come back to her often, told me about a blog she read and how it said you should keep a food journal. Not one you write down or log, but a picture food journal. Then you need a friend who is willing to hold you accountable to your food. So you find someone who wants to be your text food journal buddy and you already have step one, finding your buddy. Then you just text pictures of whatever you are going to consume. I haven't started this process with my whole 30 friend, but I did start with a few other ladies. Two days in and so far, so good. I will tell you, I wouldn't want anyone to see what I consumed after my whole 30 journey was over. I knew I needed to take this challenge of finding a journal buddy.
Yes, you can lie and eat something and not text it, but wouldn't you feel rotten? It crossed my mind today as I consumed the rest of my mint chip coconut ice cream and a fiber one bar. My first though, I already told them I ate the ice cream, so it's already on my log, right!?! No, it wouldn't be honest. So I guess step two is make sure you have someone that really, really wants to do this and will be honest with you and themselves.
So who is ready? Who wants this change? I wish I could credit the blogger for this idea. I may ask my whole 30 friend and put the link in the comments. I also need to find a better alias for her. Anyhow, take this idea and run with it. Make the change and enjoy the change. It has been fun so far.
So I will leave you with a quick little workout I saw on Facebook today that you could knock out quickly and then you can say you got a workout in. Here it is:
40 jumping jacks
10 push ups
