100 cal turmeric drink with lemon, almond milk and stevia. I made it. Also half cup canned pumpkin with cinnamon and stevia. 100

Breakfast: English muffin 100 with butter 50, egg 100, lox 50. 300. Coffee? 50

Snack protein bar 200

650.

Lunch healthier kind of chip and spicy tomato juice 200, eng muffin 100 with veggie burger 120. 420. And an orange.

Snack yogurt 100 fat free Greek.

1250...plus also some candy so 1300. Then driving to give my gift to my favorite, cute physical therapist. I have a crush on him and we do text sometimes. He's single and 11yrs older but looks more like my age, 32. Like I said, he's sweet and I haven't seen him in around 2.5 months.

I haven't set my computer up yet....but my gift to my pt was a major success. He kissed me on the cheek twice. When I arrived and when I left :) he loved the seahorse gift I got him. I got the gift bc he has them as pets and it is something special and warm that was meant only for him. I will write the whole story on the weekend, since I got home late tonight after 9pm. Worked 12 hours at my desk job. And got to him - my PT - after 8. They are open late.

Ate a ton of sautéed veggies just now a lil after 9 so I could take the anti inflammatory.400? Bit too much oil.

Total 1700, great. No exercise, abs tomorrow morning.

SkinInTheGame on 12/17/2014:

Have fun!

Tonight I have work and a union meeting after. Glad I not exercising in full swing. Meeting ends usually around 6:30-7 so then I can come home and relax before bed. Last Night I met up with my dad who was being overally generous and I can't thank him enough. He bought me a laptop computer for the holidays. Happy Chanukah if anyone here celebrates, tonight is the first night. My laptop got a virus and wasn't working right for a few months, so I did need a new one :) couldn't even get on the web before! Iftar dad didn't get me one, I would wait probably 3-6 months or more before getting one myself. This is great!

Early breakfast: banana 120, pumpkin with stevia and cinnamon 50, cottage cheese 90 - so around 250.

Later breakfast: avocado 80, wrap 100, veggie burger 70: 250

Snack protein bar: 220

720....

Lunch: quarter avocado 80, wrap 100, veggie burger 70, tomato juice 70, chips 130: 450.

Snack: Greek yogurt 150....but maybe skipping and instead having a hot dog at the meeting, haven't decided!

Dinner:

They had food at the meeting. Nothing healthy. Huge fried chicken subs and also some salad with dressing. And a chocolate. I don't think more than 700? Maybe?

2050-2100.

puddles on 12/16/2014:
Dads are definitely special. Wishing you a great day.


museumgirl on 12/16/2014:
Dad's are the best. happy Chanukah

Fasted till 4:30. 2 small protein bars 300, bAnana 100, avocado on extra large English muffin 350. Total 750. Once again broke down and couldn't fast the whole day. Maybe I am better off fasting till dinner, like I did today. Now taking my anti ibflammatory medicine that I skipped this morning.

Also yesterday and today calories over 2000: yesterday 4100 plus today 750 = 4850. Excess of 850 cals. Combined with around 1900 excess last week = 2750 = too much. Planning to start getting rid of the 2750 thru days of intermittent fasting next week and week after.

Shiat!!! Plus some leftover fried rice and chicken I was saving for tomorrow. Maybe around 350 more??

So....around 3100 cals excess. Almost a pound. Will have to sorta watch calories closer this week and then on the weekend I can try to gain some kinda deduction and work to dwindle this high # down.

At least I am now full and content and feeling like I want to go to sleep and it's only 5:10pm. Once January hits I need to look hopefully more to exercise and less to intermittent fasting.

6:30am Breakfast 400. Cottage cheese, nut butter, stevia, cinnamon.

8am Snacking 500, 200. Wraps with tons of butter and a little lox, and a high fat chia pudding that has been in my fridge at least two months. And kombucha. Once again craving fat.

1100.

11am Early lunch 750 popcorn, leftover white rice with cottage cheese and nut butter and another old chia pudding. Feeling unbalanced. And craving fat and salt - I want mcdonalds or Burger King tonight. Feel horrible and out of whack.

1850

1:30 Later snack popcorn, half avocado, chips 350.

2200.

Snack on gummies, peanut butter, cooked strawberries. Really craving sugar, fat and carbs.

2450....gonna enjoy this day, not done yet.

2600 after chips.

McDonald's and some fried rice too. Around 1500.

Total 4100

puddles on 12/13/2014:
Just keep trying.


SkinInTheGame on 12/14/2014:
Been there done that!! Just push the "refresh" button!

It's are our lives and we are going to have days like these.

Thank you for all your comments, will be writing to you all soon but tonight I need to go to bed soon :)

Jury duty today. Legs surprisingly feeling a little better :)

Monday early food at midnight 650.

Snacking: 100

750.

Lunch: leftover tilapia on a wrap with lettuce and mustard and a drink 300 approx. and coffee decaf 50.

1100 so far, good.

Snack: 250 protein bar

Dinner: leftover chicken and fish around 350?, sautéed broccoli and garlic 100?, sautéed mushrooms 100? and fruit 100?, around 650-700.

2050 :) very good.

All in all, God was definitely watching over me today. I consider myself very lucky for how well today played out for me. Goodnight.

Exercise: 1 back exercise, one side abs exercise, and 20 minutes (not fully continuous) of the arm (upper body cardio) cycling machine. Next time I will exercise is probably Thursday with the arm cycle, not Wednesday bc I will be late to work that day bc of dr - so I may have OT. We will see :) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Sunday - Early breakfast and snack 1200 cal. High fat and protein mostly. Fast till Monday morning now, little under 24hrs. No weight loss this week, hopefully just maintenance and not weight gain! Bc I didn't really have a calorie deficit even with 1200 cals today bc all week was high at least 2000-2200 calories Monday thru Friday. Either way, 1200 cals today will be helpful.

Because I am on an anti inflammatory that needs to be taken with food, and if I am feeling pain, it is hard to skip eating and not take the medicine. So I do eat breakfast and don't fast....either way, 1200 cals today is good!

1420 cals, could be worse.

Jezebel on 12/08/2014:
Glad your legs are better today.


museumgirl on 12/08/2014:
Maintenance is good, too. Hope you feel better!


puddles on 12/08/2014:
Keep working it and take care of yourself. Wishing you a good day.

Was debating fasting till dinner but legs hurt in am so had some food - and too many of the second package of gummy omega 6 vitamins but don't regret it!! Was good and when I finish them I prob won't buy them ever again! And these were the less sweet ones and I still had multiple servings lol. Around 40 gummies at 10 calories each, some cranberry preserves I made and 3 other vitamin chews. Also an emergency-c packet. Not food but didn't really even want breakfast but had to have something in my stomach in order to take the anti inflammatory. Total around 450 cal. Fine. Big meal tonight so fasting till then so I can enjoy what I order. Then fasting till Monday morning....I can do it....fasting the whole day tomorrow. If I can't fully make it I will have dinner on Sunday but I plan to fast - I have no plans so that can make it difficult.

Ate some leftover collard greens I had cooked I think Thursday night?

650 cal.

Decadent snacking on rich chocolate nut butter mixed in with cooked bran, cinnamon, stevia. Was worth breaking a fast. Also lots of fat so now I will not be as inclined to order a fatty dish at dinner, probably shrimp. Going out to eat :). 400 cal. Also lots of fiber in this brand. So good. From GNC, high protein and high fiber.

1050, full out worth it. Not sure if my plans tomorrow. But can't imagine fasting overnight till Monday right now. Probably a dinner with meat and a dessert involving the nut butter.

puddles on 12/06/2014:
Wishing you success with your fasting. Have a great day.
