Health Coach and Transparency

My employer is offering a $200 credit toward our 2010 medical plans by participating in a health management program. Now, I have a health coach. I will be receiving telephone sessions every two weeks for six months. Since I'm already exercising, we decided to work on diet and nutrition. This is going to be good. While I'm highly motivated to exercise, I cannot say the same thing about my eating. So....we decided to do something I am VERY resistance to doing. Keeping a food journal. Transparency at its best. I am not looking forward to this but here goes.

For the next two weeks, I am going to write down EVERYTHING I eat. I can't believe I'm freaking out as I write this. Well, let's start:


Two whole wheat pancakes with syrup
Two turkey sausage patties
1 can Full Throttle

Morning Snack

1 light Strawberry Activa


1 slice turkey, 2 slices jalapeno cheese
1 salad - lettuce and tomatoes, blue cheese dressing

32 oz. Crystal Light


Two hot dogs with buns

One caramel ice cream sundae
