Dear Food Diary

31 Jan

It is that time again…time for another challenge.  I would like to start by thanking everyone who has participated in Merry Planksmas and Happy Glute Year.  I have kept myself going on the wall sits every single day this month.  I hubs can attest to the positive difference these wall sits have made on my donkey booty…stallion booty…any RHOA viewers out there?  In addition to obviously being firmer and sitting a little higher, my pants are getting baggy on my thighs and butt!  I hope all of you that participated are seeing results.

I plan on keeping this chain going as long as my legs and tush will hold me.  So it is never to late to join me.  Keep on keeping on or jump in and hastag that business with #happygluteyear.  Who knows maybe we will have a quarter bouncing challenge at the end of this year if yall keep wall sitting with me!

Now on to February…I decided that since the previous two months’ challenges had been exercise/physical, that we should focus on the eats that fuel our sexy bods.  So February’s challenge is #dearfooddiary.   Strive to record every single thing you eat for the month of February.

Use this challenge to:

  • Start keeping a food diary, if you do not already.
  • Get more dedicated to logging everything you eat everyday.
  • Look at your diet and see if there are ways to improve upon it.
    • Eat cleaner less processed foods
    • Change your ratio of carbs, fats, and protein
    • Eat more or less depending on exercise

The rules are simple.  Commit to journaling your food for the month and do it!  You can follow me on myfitnesspal.  There is a free app, and they have a website.  You can make your diary private or public to your friends.  My diary is public to friends, so be sure to add me, fatchick2fitchick.

You can also take pics, screenshots, and ask questions during the month.  Hit me up on on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the #dearfooddiary hashtag.  We should all collectively be able to answer each others questions and give advice/support.

I will point out some cool features on myfitnesspal as the month progresses, and tell you how I use them.  You can use any app/website you like, or use good old pen and paper.  Whichever you prefer works for me.

Be sure to share the challenge with your friends, and get them on the food diary bandwagon.  Lets keep 2013 a productive and healthy year!  Grab the code above to post on your blogs and share the fun!

Stay Strong and Keep Moving,

    Great challenge! I just switched back to MFP from WW last week. I’m good at tracking all week, but the weekends can be tough so this will help keep me on track 🙂

    Yay! Glad you are challenging us again! What a great idea to make it focused on our food. I am looking forward to this one too! Oh and I lol’d at the quarter bouncing comment. Love it. I love the difference in my booty and thighs from the awesome wallsits and I will for sure keep it up. Thanks for being so inspirational 🙂

    i just found you from MamaLaughlin or Holly at Where we can Live like Jack and Sally, I don’t remember which… I love your writing style. Your motivation and attitude inspires me. My Husband and I are expecting our first child in August. I’m going to follow along until then, doing what I can while preggo, then I’m going to kick my ass into high gear and work out with you! Keep it up sister!

    I don’t have a donkey booty like pheadra but nor a stallion more in between hehe. I like your idea but I really would forget to write what I am eating and it feels like a diet rather than a lifestyle. I don’t think I will write everyday what I eat for all my life. If I eat something which isn’t healthy I will try to avoid it next time though.

      I understand your point, but the hard truth for me is that my lifestyle will consist of counting calories or I will gain weight again. I may not have to do it every day for the rest of my life, but I will have to food journal from time to time to keep myself in check. If I eat too much, even of the healthy stuff, I will gain weight back.

        I think everyone should do what they feel it is best for them 🙂 I believe everyone should do what works best for them. No one knows themselves better than they do. When I used to write what I eat I felt bad for every single thing that I had and put myself down even more. But that’s because I am crazy :P. I have to be careful of every single little thing I eat too because I gain weight immediately. But I remember every single thing that I eat, so if i had a little to much of something, I will know the next day, thanks to the scale.

    I eat well, but I always forget to write everything down. I need to get better at it!
