Day 1 Food Journal

2 cups multi grain Cheerios cereal
1 cup 2% milk
1 large orange

Snack 1:
Quaker Oats natural chocolate chunk granola bar

1 can Starkist light tuna
1 Tbs Hellman's regular mayo
Orville Redenbacher 100 calorie popcorn pack
1 small orange
1 low carb whole wheat burrito size tortilla
4 olives with pimentos

Post workout snack:
Quaker Oats natural chocolate chunk granola bar

1 small skinless chicken breast
2 Tbs of Newman's O & V (for marinade)
1 cup brown basmati rice
1 cup steamed green beans
1 cup steamed yellow corn

2 Hershey's milk chocolate miniatures

Daily workout:
1 hour strive class (mixed weights and cardio)

Total calories:

This is actually pretty darn good. I am shooting for around 2,000 calories to begin with and as I plateau I will slowly decrease the number. According to my BMR I would need to consume 3,093 calories to maintain my current weight, so I am thinking that cutting over 1,000 calories from that will work well. I know that seems high to most people trying to lose weight but I have to remind myself that I am not sedentary. I work out, I walk around my town a lot and being a massage therapist is a very physical job. We will have to see. Headed to the grocery store tomorrow for better food options.

On a side note: it would be totally super awesome if the Bodybugg people would kindly donate one of their amazing inventions to me for review and use. *wink, wink*

Hey there Olivia - thanks right back atcha for visiting MY blog :) and for thinking I'm purty (blush). If only you could see me right now with 2 pimples like dimples right on either side of my face (I'm a poet!).
Ug...I didn't even break out as a teenager. Oh well, I'll chalk it up to stress. I'm going to add you to my blog roll so I remember to check in.
I think I'll take your lead on posting my meals today - looks like you're doing great! Have a good one.
