September Reader’s Challenge of the Month

Posted September 4th, 2012 by Linda with No Comments

Happy September! It’s looking to be an earlier fall up here in northern NJ, and I couldn’t be more happy! We’re settling into our school schedule and looking forward to cooler days, cozy sweaters, and comforting foods. I feel like in the autumn, life moves a little slower and I’m more aware of what’s going on around AND inside me.

This month’s challenge will help us focus on ourselves, which is something I think everyone could use a little more of now and again. We are going to use a food journal all month, not to count calories, but to find the connection between what we eat and how we feel. We want to focus on our mood while we’re eating and then again a little while after – actively being aware of how the food is affecting you.

You can journal your foods and moods with a notebook, a spreadsheet or word document, a group on Facebook, an online program or an app. There are lots of ways to keep track! Here’s a cute printable we found from a nutritionist’s site. We are testing a few different food/emotion journal apps and if you’ve got one you’d like to suggest, please leave a comment below! We’ll be giving our reviews of the apps midway through the month.

Keep us up to date on your progress here in the comments or post a message on our Facebook page!
