How To Track Your Eating With A Food Journal

how to keep a food log

I know this will be hard for some to do, but I'm here to get your motivated and to teach you how to keep track of what your eating by creating a food log.

How To Keep Track Of Your Eating Habits

Most of us have a problem with over eating or not eating healthy or both. Creating a food log allows you to keep track of what you have been eating. What we do next is we track our eating habits for a week by writing down every thing we have ate throughout the week and pin point what are our problem times of the day (when we are most likely to eat junk food or over eat). Then we take this data and see how we can improve our eating habits.

Why is figuring out the time you eat junk food important?

This is important because it let's you figure out what your relapses are. Just because you always want to eat that junk food at that time of day doesn't mean it's because your hungry. This could be because you are stressed out at work / home or what ever it maybe. You have to think before you eat why am I eating like this or why do I want to eat this junk food? By doing this it helps you figure out what your triggers are for eating this unhealthy food or over eating.

I know What My Triggers Are For Eating Unhealthy How Do I Fix It?

How to fix your triggers once you have figured out what they are by keeping track of how and what your eating. Ok so you have down the things that make you want to over eat and eat junk food, but how do you stop it. What you need to do is take little healthy snacks with you and ones you can't stand to eat. Why because once you start having these cravings and you force your self to eat a healthy snack that you can't stand these junk food triggers will start to go away and over time you will start to like that healthy snack you once couldn't tolerate, this will take commitment.

Keep On Going & You Will Make It

Keep keeping track of what you are eating in your food log for at least 3 months every day and following though with this plan, it will work for you, if you just stick to it.

Startup Guide For Jogging & Speed Walking

How To Start Jogging

Ok, so if you have saw my last post about BMI and how mine was rather high, however I have lost weight with Skinny Fiber and doing the correct things with it. I am still having problems getting up to jogging and not because I don't want to, it's because I'm still a little heavy for it, so it's hard on my knees.

Find out what your BMI is on my last post here What Is My BMI.

I have an action plan that you can follow with me.

How To Make Time For Jogging

First we have to make time for it to get started and how do we make time to jog? We can easily make time by adjust our schedule. You know that favorite TV show you watch or that Friday night dinner you always do? Well now is the time to replace them with starting a new you and a new life because, if we don't change something we are always going to be the same as we are now overweight and having a low self esteem. I don't know about you, but I'm sick of it and I use to be in great shape...many years ago now.

This is a life change not a quick fix and I'm here to help you though it!

All you have to do is just follow the steps and learn. I'm shedding weight are you? If you say no now is the time to get connected and start reading some of the things on my blog.

With that said let's dive right into it.

How To Stretch Out Before Jogging / Speed Walking

In this video you will see some great ways to stretch out before getting started with your speed walk or jog. Now I know for some the stretching out might be enough of a work out and that is ok as long as your doing it. This is about building up to that jog you never thought you could do. For the ones that are able to do this and still go for their speed walk / jog it's so important to do it just as she shows, so that you create a good form and are doing it correctly.

Why is Stretching out before you speed walk or jog important?

Stretching out before you do your speed walk / jog is utterly important because, if you do not do this you can pull a mussel and I have before, just trust me on this it's well worth doing the stretches than it is to pull a mussel. It's also gets your blood moving and lubricates the joints, so it makes it easier on your body's joints and mussels.

How To Warm Up To Jogging

This is our action plan!

After you change a few things in your busy life to create the time to start jogging, we want to start out slow and we do that by walking correct? Yes walking is great, but the truth is that when you walk you have to get your heart rate up to burn any fat and what I mean by that is you need to speed walk to where you start feeling your heart pump and only then are you truly burning fat. Now if you walk to slow sure you are burning calories and over the course of 6 years you might finally reach your weight loss goals. Who wants to wait that long? Not me and I'm sure that you don't either. That is why we are going to start out with speed walking until we can feel our heart pumping blood thought out our body.

I want you and I to do this starting out for an hour every other day. I don't care, if you went 3 miles or 10 miles as long as you are speed walking for at least an hour.

We will then after a month be ready for some light jogging. For some of us it may take two months and you know what that is ok as long as we are doing it and making the time to do it we can do this together.

How To Get A Treadmill For Cheap

Now the next thing is I know for some it might be hard and you might feel embarrassed to go out speed walking in your neighborhood and you know what that is ok because we are working on your self esteem by getting you moving. This is personally what I have done because it is so hot in Florida I found a great used treadmill on Craigslist. Yes good used treadmills are affordable and you will most likely find one for a great price on sites like Craigslist...I love buying from there. Once you have established if you are going to go and get a treadmill or just use the old fashion sidewalk you are ready to start.

Drinking Enough Water While Speed Walking

Keeping hydrated is very important during this time. I recall once when I was in great shape I had a goal of out jogging the city bus as funny as that might sound I actually did it because they do their stops and what have you. I was so focused on this goal that I wasn't paying attention to my water intake and next thing I know I got very dizzy and almost fainted right there on the spot, so when you get thirsty as you are speed walking do not be afraid to drink some water to keep your self going.

How To Cool Down After Jogging / Speed Walking

Once you have done your speed walking it's also a good idea to do a cool down. This is where you will walk at a normal pace for about five minutes and then do some more stretches

In this short video you see and learn how to cool down the correct way to prevent injury to your self, so please make sure you watch it and learn from it.

Why is cooling down important after jogging or speed walking?

It's very important because it allows your muscles to cool down and not become overly tight which can later give you problems, plus it helps with shock to the body. Yes that is correct when you take your body and do things that it normally doesn't do it can become in shock, so this helps it adjust and just gives it a little bit of time to cool down which is good for you and helps avoid some of the pain that comes with excising.

I hope you have found this beginners guide to jogging useful and stay in touch because in about a month I will post a new one for us to do together.

After you are comfortable with this routine I suggest you move onto Phase Two Of How To Jog.

If you feel that you are already good to go on jogging then you are ready for the Skinny Fiber Boot Camp Exercise, this is made for the ones who have to build up to that.
