Daily Progress Report

Michael — The main contributor at South Bay Foodies — and I have challenged each other to lose some weight. I am hoping that as a couple will be able to motivate each other to victory.

There is $100 up for grabs and of course my pride is on the line! How could I, Ms. Skinnypeopledo, lose to a “foodie”? By nature they eat, right?

To add some accountability, I have challenged myself to do a series of mini-posts in the form of a food and calorie log. With the help of my trust bodybugg, I will track and post the nutritional good, bad, and ugly of my day.

Well here goes.

The good, the bad, and the ugly…

*My goal is 20% Protein, 20% fat, and 60% Carbs

I don’t feel that I did too badly for my first day. I didn’t skip a meal. But I did eat a lot of carbohydrates plus I didn’t work out at all yesterday. I will at the very lease try to walk tomorrow!

I was amazed, though, to see how much sodium is in my diet. 1170mg of that was from the noodles alone. I need to reduce my sodium intake and drink more water!

Do you have any helpful tips? Where else can I improve?
