Weight: 126.0

calories throughout workday: 1250.

came home and indulged a bit, instead of gym, calling it an early night :)

dinner: writing it in the opposite order that I ate it lol so I can remember everything: small banana 120, "peanut butter cookie" more like a dessert bar by Larabar 240, gonna have a kombucha I think 40, some kind of veganaise on salad (already premade from store) - at least 100 cal there, a pint of kale with sautéed squash and nuts - around 400 at least in there, and some mushrooms i'll be generous and say only 50: 950

total here: 2200 ouch.

exercise: none except 10 min at lunch and walking to/from my car - around 10 minutes each way.

i'll be generous and say I walked 1/2 hour today :) need a rest, legs/ankles are tired from yesterday.

was planning on gym for like 2 weeks, but, decided not to go bc I am feeling run down. i'll go tomorrow, after a meeting that ends around 7pm.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

Total here: 500.

total so far: 740, good I started keeping track! didn't realize the total was so high.

looking to buy my food for the week soon. & then off to park for jogging. - actually, scratch that, thinking i'm gonna go to the park first :) food later.

11am lunch: - very balanced, which is how my lunches generally are - usually the healthiest part of my day -  rest of sardines from yesterday's pack: 60 (just one big one), some roasted/sundried tomato spread 100 at most, white rice 200 at most. around 350 at most.

1100, good.

Banana in middle of the night, but it's ok, I think my body was craving the potassium. lol. and some Tums. 150 cals overall.

Big late breakfast, 9am: 650

Woke up on the later side, thanks to a sleeping pill I took at 2 or 3am. Woke for good around 8:30am, which is far better than 6 or 7am :). did good! and may go back to sleep for a little bit now - it's almost 10am. yup....went back to bed 10am-11am. :)

Planning for a slow, uneventful weekend because next week Monday & Tuesday are going to be busy. I will be going to the gym tonight, so I can go back Monday night after work. I have a meeting on Tuesday after work, so that's why i'm going to the gym Monday instead. Then, the rest of the week to come should be uneventful as well.

Noon light meal: pear and sautéed (more like steamed) veggie mix with added sea salt 150 or so...and a natural peanut bar: peanuts, agave syrup, peanut butter, brown rice syrup, sunflower oil, salt. 170 cals. total here: 320

total so far: 1120, I doubt this will be a lower cal day - maybe tomorrow. as i'm quite hungry today.

4pm: chips, strawberries, kombucha 150, rice 150, sardines 130, garlic sauce veggies  100 = 530

1650 so far, gym soon :)...and a natural energy shot drink (made with green tea and lots of antioxidants) 50 cal.

1700 :) before gym!

 

 

2250 cals, good!

Happy Friday, Y'all!

Day started out great, but got very tired in afternoon at work and extremely tired after work....but, then I realized, I can relax and do whatever the heck I want or don't want when I get home! and that's just what I did!

1150 cals till end of workday.

Definitely indulged on a BIG dinner. Lots of sautéed veggies (like around 4-6 cups).  I stopped by a health food store and they actually had a decent selection around 6pm at the end of the day. I was impressed that they still had veggies. Seems they usually do, which is nice, means I can stop by after work :) and not have to necessarily think "why should I go, they will be sold out!)....they close the hot food section early probably at 6:30-7pm, it's a natural, vegan huge grocery store by me.

....right....so....the veggies. around 500-600 cals as they were in sauces. also, some tofu, figure just 50 cals more...then, to top it off, some chips & kombucha (that I also picked up from the store) 200 cals more.  I indulged in food shopping after work, it's a stress relief for me, for sure. at least it's better than smoking!? so, 850 or so (maybe less) cals at dinner. but like I said, it's not boiled veggies, they are sautéed and in sauces, it amps up the calories.

total today: 2000 cals, good job to me :)

exercise: half hour walk at lunch and also walking to & from car to work (around 5 min each way).

actually, total was 2050.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

between 2000-2100. I was aiming for lower but gave in tonight at dinner. It was all healthy, just bigger portions. got home a bit late, I think I was extra hungry.

exercise: half hour walk at lunch...but also walking to & from my car (prob 5 minutes each way, but not more).

OhioRaven on 04/22/2015:
I need to walk at lunch time. I'm having trouble finding time to fit in 20 minutes after work.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/23/2015:
yeah, it's better for me, too, at lunch. because, then, whenever you leave, you've at least done around 20-30 min of walking for the day - which is far better than sitting the entire workday :) the benefits are endless. even if I come back a little sweaty :)


Umpqua on 04/23/2015:
I'm sure it's nice to get out and walk at lunchtime - just to escape the office and get some fresh air!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/23/2015:
it is always nice, even in winter when I freeze! it's the best :)

Hope you where able to go back to sleep and had a restful night. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
Yes, it's been a pretty good week so far, sleep-wise.


Umpqua on 04/21/2015:
I hope the cramping subsides for you and you have a better day today. It sounds like you had a really nice weekend!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
thanks Ump! Feeling much better now. and you are right, the weekend was nice and relaxing - and happy to get the longer walk in! Gonna try for usual longer walks on Sundays, I think :)


thinnside40 on 04/21/2015:
Meg woke this morning w/aching back behind her knee. She's pretty active, but did 1.5 hour zumba class in the park on Saturday. Thinking pulled muscle and gave her a note for P.E. today.... Hope you gt some much needed good rest tonight!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
I hope Meg feels better...love all your pics above with the eggs...your entries are so cool - especially bc they give me a picture into a life so different than my own! thanks for giving us the chance to see it!

Crying on my ride home, not bc I am upset, but feeling very exhausted. There are no words to describe how it feels. Legs hurt a little bc I used them more yesterday but not for that. All morning at work I had to stand at my desk in very unnatural - bent over my desk - positions. All morning. So, glad I don't have to exercise today.

Overall around 2350. No exercise.

Today is a new day & I am thankful for that! Last night was a struggle, and I realize it's because of the strong coffee I had yesterday, at 5pm.  However, I'm not letting that ruin today. It's beautiful & sunny. I will do a weights workout in the morning & then go to the park later.  Will probably buy mostly prepared foods for this week, but that may change. Looking to spend time outside the apartment today & maybe on the phone with the same friend I met up with yesterday....

I may actually go to a bargain store to hopefully find shirts that are good for work but also good for walking at lunch - those stretchy fabric shirts that are usually very colorful, loose, and you don't see sweat easily on them...they would be perfect for walking & for work...I was in Macy's yesterday, but they didn't have any I liked. In all honesty though, I don't see myself going to the store today...

Breakfast: grapefruit around 100, fried egg 80 with 1/2 avocado 160 and some sea salt, on a wrap 100. around 450, good. just waiting for it to digest a bit, then going to the gym.

Gym: small bananas 2 - 220 After gym: quest protein bar from 7-eleven 200 870, excellent.

I have all the reason to make this a good day. I really do, food and exercise are good. Will be trying hard today not to fall apart and mess things up :)

Going to store to pick up food for the week. Then relaxing a little and off to the park I think. Snacking on veggies: 80? 950...

Kombucha 50 1000 Vegan protein bar 250 1250, good so far.

Really good.

after walking: fruit bar 100, 1350

dinner: 500 cal of chicken breast with skin, 1/2 cup fried rice leftovers, brussel sprouts.

1850 total, perfect. balances yesterday.

I had a good, productive weekend calorie-wise, exercise-wise, and seeing my best friend socially. all is good.
