I’ve been thinking.
(Dangerous, I know…)
Now that I have been eating more “normally” and actually cooking and plating my own food (for the first time in months!!!) I feel like I have really lost perspective on the bigger picture of what I put in my mouth throughout the day.
And this scares the crap out of me.
I don’t have the luxury to lose control of how I eat…and I'm afraid with every bite that I will. So, since I really had nothing better to do all day, I came up with a little project to give me (and you) an idea of how I’m eating. I took a “before and after” shot of ANYTHING I put in my mouth. For 24 hours.
So here it is…my day...one bite at a time.
I was really honest and didn’t eat anything that isn’t pictured here. I do have to say, though, that knowing I would be taking these pictures really helped my keep random small snacking (aka “grazing”) non-existent. It made me think a little more about what I was eating, and looking back today, it makes me see where I could have made better choices.
This is something I may have to do this more often...just to keep myself in check!
