Physical – Activity: Make healthy food choices and track diet

Learn how to follow a healthy diet. Research some of the top diet plans at and Read about the Blue Zones Diet and the MIND Diet.

Dive into learning with the book “Prediabetes: a complete guide” by Jill Weisenberger.

Invest in a good cookbook with healthy recipes.

Explore the grocery store with a Hy-vee nutritionist tour. Learn to read food labels, and shop the perimeter, where fresh meat, produce, and dairy are often arranged. Eat more fruits & veggies.

Track your food intake with an app like Lose It!, Myfitnesspal or a form. It’s been clinically proven that keeping track of what you eat is the #1 most effective method for controlling and reducing your daily caloric intake. Those who keep a diet diary lose twice as much weight.

FORMS: a printable food and fitness journal from WebMD


Mine: Foldable Food Diary (pdf) with 6 forms per page, close to 3 x5 size

Learn more about healthy nutrition and make healthy food choices.

I use the resources in my eBook “Simply Dinner: the Game Plan” to organize my recipes and plan meals. Check out Simply Dinner: the Game Plan! It has a blank recipe card template with four 3×5 cards on one page. Not to mention enough recipes designed for a low-carbohydrate diet for a month of menus. There are no fancy ingredients here, and please note they are not vegetarian.

The goal for this week:

“I will make healthy food choices by planning a healthy menu for the week on Sunday morning for this week. I will track the nutrition of the food I eat this week with a food diary.”

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.
