Food Journal: 9/15- 9/21


Well, I am back after missing a few of these. I am sure this will come as no surprise but things have not been going well. Both my anxiety and depression have been acting up, I have not been doing as good of a job about no self-medicating as I need to, and I am not being as active or as productive as I want/need.

I really have nothing more to say on the subject. I am disappointed, upset, and rather down.

Still trying to get it in this week and start moving forward and we will see how it all works out.

I am adding a new overall goal in my life and that is to watch my added sugar intake. Doing some research on the amount of sugar that we Americans consume was a bit scary. This is going to be a slow grind and process and I will never be super militant about it. First, I hate artificial sugars so most popular replacement things are not something I will consider. Second, I love salads and salad dressing can be killer. Third, as of now other than tea, all of my caffeine comes from sugar. To address the last two I am just going to be more aware of the dressings I use and look into making my own. I am also still shooting for the goal of drinking less caffeine and being smart about the caffeine I consume when I do.

Other than that normal stuff. Wear my Fitbit, cut back on Redbull and other ways I drink my calories, watch sodium, more vegan and vegetarian foods, snack healthy, get a good balance in my diet, and start going to the freaking gym more consistently.
