Rowena's 'trying to keep focused' food diary!

I've found recently that i'm beginning to let old habits creep in! I think this is mainly because I don't weigh in at a group. I do keep a food diary on paper but as no one aside from me looks at it I sometimes accidentally-on-purpose miss a couple of things off here and there. I know that it's stupid because at the end of the day I'm only fooling myself and only have myself to blame when it comes to weigh in day and I don't get the results I'm hoping for.
Anyway, this is my attempt at keeping myself on track. I will be 100% truthful about what I have eaten every day and as it is published on here for the world to see I'm hoping that it keeps me in the zone!
Will update later on with my food diary for today. :)
