Challenge Day 1

There were no problems staying on track for my goals on day 1. Of course it will likely get more difficult as the month progresses. Here are the details.

  • Money Spent $0
  • Exercise-20 minute run

My $30 food budget seems to be allowing me plenty of food to eat. I had three meals and wasn’t hungry. Although I did have a craving for something sweet. This was only day 1 though. Here is my food eaten for the day and the approximate amount of calories.

Breakfast- 3/4 Cup Oatmeal= 225 calories, sweetened with free Splenda
Lunch-PB&J=350 calories, banana =100 calories
Dinner-Ramen =380 calories, 1/3 can corn=91 calories

Total calories for the day=1146. This is not sustainable for the long term but I am about 35 pounds overweight at my current 205 pounds. This should be enough to keep me going for the month.

  1. I wish you the best of luck… 🙂

    I have to be honest with you, you cannot survive on $30 a month for food. The only way it is possible is if you starve yourself (or steal food).

    Ramen is cheap crap, don’t eat that stuff. You can get 1500-2000 calories per day with $100-$150/month. Spending $3-5 dollars a day is cheap eating in the United States.

    1200 calories/day is not healthy for a 200 pound person.
