Sticking to a healthy diet isn't always easy (um, hello drive-through window) but one way to stay on track is to keep a personal food and fitness journal.
A food and fitness journal is a detailed record of everything you have consumed, and exercises you have completed over a period of time.

By keeping a record of your day, you can spot unhealthy habits, learn more about calorie consumption and nutrition and become more aware of how you treat your body.
