The Nutrition Challenge

What: Food Journaling Challenge (I see you rolling your eyes…trust me this will be fun…plus there’s prizes involved!)

When: January 1st through January 31st (you can start any time in that window but in order to be eligible for prizes you must complete at least 3 weeks of a food journal)

How:

  1. Find a nice little journal, notebook, or stack of scrap paper (no, really, whatever works for you)…and write “January 2021 Food Journaling Challenge” at the top of the first page.
  2. Keep track of everything you eat, every day for a month…yep EVERYDAY.
    • Doesn’t have to be anything fancy…just a little list of all the things you ate (indicating the meal you ate it for is optional…it can literally be one long list for each day).
    • Specific quantities aren’t necessary, just a quick list of what you ate at each meal.
    • Don’t forget the snacks!
    • Bonus points if you include how much water you drank each day
    • Bonus points if you include the time of day you ate things
  3. Make it fun…use crayons, colored pens or markers, draw pics, whatever makes it fun for you.
  4. Forgot to do it one day, no worries…write down what you can remember and then pick up where you left off the next day.  No worries.
  5. As you go through the month, allow what you notice about your eating habits to inform your choices.  For example, maybe you start to notice you snack a lot during the day on junk food, don’t eat many green leafy veggies, drink more soda than you thought you did, skip meals more often than you thought you did, eat later at night more often than you thought you did, etc.  Notice your trends and let those things guide future decisions.
  6. To be entered into the drawing for prizes:
    • Send a short burb (written or audio/video) to Bobbi telling her the biggest thing you learned about your eating patterns in January
    • Include a photo of an piece of your food journal for an additional entry
    • All entries received by the end of the day February 1st will be included in the drawing for prizes.

Why:

  1. Because awareness is the most important step!
  2. Because everyone loves a new challenge!
  3. Because Christmas cookies, candy, the holidays and New Year’s, and ARGH!!!!
  4. Because someone said there’s prizes!!
