First day of the challenge

Stats:  155.4 lbs., 5'10", BMI: 22.3 My Fitness Pal says: 1,690 calories total today

Spread out throughout the day:  2 huge tankards of coffee; 12 oz. 1% milk, a couple of packets of Splenda.

Breakfast: one packet of oatmeal, made with water.

Here you see a sandwich made of: 4 oz. boiled chicken breast, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, and 1.5 slices 100% whole wheat bread. This was a little boring so I added 2/3 of a slice of cheddar cheese.

I exercised a lot of restraint by eating only three. They are oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They are on the small side. Normally I would make them on the large side and eat twice that many, and keep on going. It's late in the afternoon now, by the way. I will only make one blog post each day, but update it as many times as necessary.
Dinner: 1/2 cup Sam's Club cranberry pecan chicken salad, 2 oz. plain chicken breast added in (it's too mayonnaise-y on its own); a 100-calorie wheat round. Yes, I know that's two chicken salad sandwiches in one day, but we had chicken in the fridge we had to use up. I normally have a more varied diet. I also know that there are no vegetables or fruit today, and this should be improved upon tomorrow. (I ate a lot of broccoli yesterday.) Calorie count will be updated daily at the top of the post, with the stats.


  1. Good luck on the challenge! You have to be pretty damn good lookin' if you're 5'10" and only 155. I'd friggin' kill to be your height and weight! I'm an obese Hobbit. :(

    The words "tankards of coffee" definitely made me laugh out loud. I know what "tankard" means, but it ALWAYS makes me picture one of those giant liquid carrying tankers and, for some reason, I got the image of one of those trucks filled with coffee when I read that sentence.

    1. I think it's one of those big metal pitcher-sized mugs that people drink beer out of. With a lid on it. I could just drink coffee straight from the carafe and save filling up my cup twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon. Or just pull up the tanker truck, lol.

  2. Oh oh, I love the chicken salad from Sam's... I get it on special occassions, lol.
