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.

|Calories Consumed Goal 1850||Calories Consumed Actual 1611|
|Calories Burned Goal 2350||Calories Bruned Actual 2112|
|Calorie Difference Goal 500||Calories Difference Actual 501|
*If Calories Burned – Calories Consumed = 500 cal. everyday; I should lose 1lb/week.
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?
