Weight: 126.2

Change of plans today, no beach but going to a BBQ in the evening.  instead, i'll go to the gym & do some extra ab exercises that I forgot yesterday and also most of my leg exercises that I would do at PT. I don't mind relaxing all day & I plan to tan on my terrace in the afternoon when the sun is fully shining on it.

Today I am doing laundry, will catch up a couple bills, and just relax.  There's no need to rush around all the time and I am thankful for a slow day.  As much as I wanted to go to the beach 2 days in a row, it's better I let my body fully relax and rejuvenate a bit with the slow pace here at home.  Yes, I am serious!  It's been a long time since the days I was a student & teacher, with ample days off.  So really, in all honesty, I fully welcome this slow, relaxing, 3-day weekend!  If I want to, I can work on my terrace today, also.  I need to remove some pigeon spikes that weren't helpful.  The were applied with crazy glue, so I will have to see if the product I bought from Home Depot does the trick!

Breakfast: 400 tasty ones.

Snack: around 120 I think.

snack #2: big portion of cinnamon weight control Quaker oatmeal (all the flavors in the weight control box are sooooooo good!) cooked with a 1/2 cup of egg whites which just makes the oatmeal bigger! awesome, and one container of Fage fat free greek yogurt with 2 packets of stevia. total here is 310, very filling and awesome.

around 850, excellent.

around 2250-2300. excellent.

exercise was a little abs and most of my leg pt exercises done at the gym.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

Oh Happy Friday! Happy 4th of July!

Been a good day. Letting myself indulge a little & feeling good about it :)

Breakfast: 450.

Snacking: Dunkin Donuts iced coffee 100, protein shake 300.

850, good!

big, but healthy lunch: cucumber salad around 50, seaweed salad around 100, bok choy and lettuce 50; low sodium chicken on a pita 200, indulged in 2 servings of cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits 250. total here: 650, very good. satisfying, too. I've been reading about how competitive eaters train, by expanding their stomachs 1-2 weeks especially before competitions, boy does this make sense! lol. I ate so much, I am very full, but almost feel good about it.

1500 so far, excellent.

....fell asleep after lunch, planned to nap and could hardly wake up from my alarm clock.  I slept around 25 minutes :)

snack after nap: big plum and iced tea. around 50.

1550, perfecto so far!

total around 2250 = perfect.

Breakfast: 100....I plan to do work at work today...yesterday was a real wash. my boss didn't give me any work to do...strange.

1150 cal and out early to celebrate the 4th :) At most 1750 :) Some walking carrying heavy packages while shopping. I would say I burned 2050 today. So, 300 cal deduct is a success! around 1100 cal down so far this week. Gonna aim high for success tomorrow with weightloss and Sunday. Saturday is a BBQ but also beach so I will work on it :)

1100 down...wow, that's about 1/3 of a pound! go me! :)

all I have to do is be consistent and I do so well.  will be working for no gains this weekend, and, if possible, a further calorie deduct / loss.

breakfast: 600.

brunch: fruit 50, bar 150, seaweed salad 100?, pita 50, another pita with pb and jelly 200, nasty bar 250 (but I ate it...higher fat, lower protein, moderate carbs - all natural mostly nuts / seeds plus some cacao liquor!) 800 calories.

1650...1700 Very healthy but huge dinner 500. All 400 or so calories in vegetables and 100 cals in tofu. Sauces were basil sauce and ginger sauce :) great dinner!!! 2100 is a major success. Exercise was walking at mall. Leg pain was very minimal. They didn't even bother me while doing laundry! Gonna beat the shin splints!

finally...a successful weekend calorie-wise.  next weekend will be the same...and so will the next couple definitely till August :).  On track.  Size 4-6 right now (mostly 6).

2 weeks until a "mini vacation" for me from work.  On Tuesday, July 15th I'm taking off to go to a concert in NYC - Bruno Mars at Madison Square Garden! Looking forward to it and I may take off the Wednesday afterwards also. 

The Friday directly after (July 18th) I'm going on a long weekend trip to Hazelton, PA to go white water rafting and coming back Sunday.  I may take Monday off as well. 

Upper Body Gym Days this coming week: Tuesday Eve, Friday Morning, Sunday Morning....or just Tuesday Eve, Thursday Eve, Sunday Morning...depending on my plans for the weekend.

Upper Body Workout for week of the 14th: Tuesday Morning / Afternoon, Friday Morning, and hopefully Sunday when I get home from the trip.

Trying to conserve my vaca days / sick days and doing this would use only 4 or 5. perfect.  Leaves me 10 sick/vaca left for this year (haven't used anything yet and everything expires next April)

With less cardio I am not having an easy time losing weight...but also the binging doesn't help lol. Overall, I am doing just fine really. Just gotta keep it up and I will do well. Weirdness at work this AM. The IRS / federal cops / transit MTA cops showed up. Maybe between 25-30 of them total. They lined us up and escorted us if we needed to go back to our desks. They also made photocopies of our driver's licenses and had us write our job title and phone #s down.

The cops told us to go home for the day bc they had a search warrant to search the office for the entire day. Probably just one day. So....relaxing at home and finally taking care of my health bills that I can submit to insurance for reimbursement. I should get around 250-300 dollars back over the past few months and I plan to stick that directly in my savings account :)

So glad to be home! I will go to the gym early and go to bed early. I was thinking beach or park....maybe I will still go to the park and bring a own chair to lie out we will see or I can lie out on my terrace. I am not sure I can get a tan like that though...and it would be better to leave the apt and do something nice. Gonna try to read at the park lol or stay out on my terrace.... :). Not like I need a big tan.

Ohhhhhh aaaaaand I wil comment on all your diaries now! Yay! Maintenance man is also here fixing a leaking hot water knob in my bathtub! Perfect timing :) to be home!

Breakfast 400 Snacks: coffee 50, almonds 100, small bar 150, sautéed garlic from my fridge lol 50. 350 good! 750 good. Plan is for healthy eating and snacking this afternoon. I stopped at the grocery store on the way home to pick up a couple of those long seedless cucumbers, few apricots, plums, pineapple, and strawberries so I am prepared for today and obviously quite a few days!

Lunch: frozen but very tasty Stouffer's stuffed pepper 250, lots of broccoli raab / sautéed garlic and lettuce around 200, and strawberries 100 :) (also diet soda) total here: a healthy, very healthy, and was tasty, 550 cal. trying to make this day off relaxed but also well spent.  tired of binging and feeling worse on my days off and then going back to work feeling horrible...!
