Challenge: No sugar diet and take a picture of everything I eat

So this week is about accountability. I’ve been trying to do a low carb diet, but the first few days always go well and then around Thursday I fall off. I don’t feel too bad because I know overall I’m eating healthier than I’ve done in a while, but I want to really go no sugar for a week at least once per month.

So this week I want to see if I can take a photo of every thing I eat.

My healthy eating plan is to eat low carb all week Monday to Friday then take Saturday off and resume on Sunday.

I will post an update at the end of the week.

*****March 5th – Update*******

Success! 5 days without consuming any breads, pasta or rice and no sugar. I cooked almost every day and took leftovers for lunch the next day.

There were a couple days when I was really hungry because the food wasn’t enough but I made it to the next meal without resorting to eating crap. It is important to increase portions when eating like this. or have good healthy snacks. I bought some almonds and started carrying them to work to eat between meals.

Remembering to take pics BEFORE eating was a challenge, lol. I would be finished or halfway through a meal before realizing that I didn’t take a photo. But I think it still had the effect I wanted in that It made me more disciplined about what I ate.

Which brings me to what I am most proud of this week; having the discipline to stick it out. A coworker had a birthday and offered me some treats that I refused. And not eating ANY fruit the entire time. That was more difficult that I thought it would be especially with a refrigerator filled with fruit.

I will eventually post some pictures as soon as I get around to resizing them.
