Don't count calories! Just keep track of perceived quantities and characteristics of each meal. The intention of this exercise is to grow awareness, observe patterns and identify what matters most to you. This is not an exercise in judgment. You are not bad! Remember, you are a practicer. You have a right to enjoy your life. So, no guilt!
As you go through the process of creating a health map, please remember that it is not static. Your life is constantly changing and your priorities are allowed to change along the way. Writing out your typical day, for several days, gives you an idea of what your life looks like today. Keep it as basic as possible.
Perfection is not the Goal,
practice is highly achievable!
