Weight: 132.0

my weight is still 132-133 so i can't go for a massage this weekend. I may try to hurry it up a bit this coming week - since for the past few weeks i've been slacking - eating lots on the weekend and the weight is being maintained but definitely not going down. my calories tend to be high 2000-2200 per day.  for instance, today was 2050.

with my long works hours, my body needs more fuel and it's difficult to eat less.  I don't really want to eat less, either. i'm happy this way.  and the weight will come off as long as i don't screw around so much on weekends.

tomorrow was supposed to be relaxed, but i may be going to visit my grandma with my parents and sister/her boyfriend. i was VERY INTERESTED in taking a walk tomorrow as my CARDIO exercise was VERY LITTLE this week. tomorrow was my ONE day to get a nice, like at least 4 mile, walk in.  I will be pissed if i don't get a long walk in. PISSED. and therefore, i may skip lunch with my folks and grandma. but then i'll regret it. so i will probably go....ugh.

going to the movies tomorrow night, which i want to do, but that's sitting. so as you can see, i want to sleep in but i still want to exercise tomorrow. ahhh, the dilemna haha. 

exercise today: no cardio, one hour weights/back/abs/200 pushups.


Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

freakin tired today. i am not going to bed very early bc i wanted to go on the computer and read. tomorrow i'll go to bed late too. yeah, i'm probably going to have to stop teaching music lessons on thursday nights. I only have two totally free weeknights (monday-thursday) being Mondays and Wednesdays and it's not enough, i don't think. I love the gym and i can't even go on Thursdays. At 28 years old, I think i'm going to stop teaching music on Thursday nights because the things i like to do i'm not doing enough of.


exercise: 30 minutes cardio, 1.5 hours weights.

(and i did around 160-200 pushups, i forget how many sets i did, but each set contained 25-35 pushups! wahoo!)

Sorry you might have to stop your Thursday night teaching classes. I hope things work out for you. Please get some rest. :)

I thing 1.5 miles is a really good amount of exercise. Good for you!

foods up until dinner 1300.

dinner: rice 220, tofu 200, salad 100, strawberries approx 50 - total around 600, alright.

total: around 1900 = perfectly fine.

exercise: 35 min cardio and 4 sets of pushups, 30 per set.

very tiring day. not physically really, since i was sitting ALL day doing paperwork. nothing exciting. but it needed to get done - i'm happy to be paid for my work at least.

so i plan to read tonight at go to sleep early so i can feel better tomorrow. :-)

I'm suprised so many of you on here didn't criticize my last journal entry. i'm actually glad you didn't - and i'm sure those of you that would just decided not to comment, haha!

with being so busy, and the job situation always changing, it seems i'm looking to do just about anything and everything to take my mind off the challenges i'm facing...i think that is part of the reason i want to have these one-night-stands/hookups/whatever you want to call them. I'm not done...I am eager to do this again, to choose a guy at the bar, and make him mine...do you think that this is very abnormal?

 I don't plan to do this for a long time, but for the next several months, i don't see myself changing.  I don't i'll even go to the bar that many times, but it's something like this: I want to feel like I can have the guys that I want, especially when i'm under the influence i feel i am much more social (duh, that's a reason people socially drink), and I want to prove that i can have the guys i want. that's all.

I'd appreciate your info and opinions, bad and good. or just your thoughts. I never slept around when i was younger, and i am not a big relatinoship type of person. It just turns out I am pretty independent. and i feel and want to experience different sexual situations and this is how i plan to do it, with protection, and because i do enjoy doing this - for the time  being. I do hope it will get old...i know these feelings will change down the road in the future.  :-)

Who am I or any of us to judge you my friend, I hope that you can build your confidence up enough to do that without liquid courage, and in another setting...That is a true thrill ;) LOl As far as my goal, I will reveal all in time but I will tell you that I have been lifting for a while, so it's not that... :) Have a good one girl!

Live it up! You are young and free, enjoy this time of your life!

no cardio, hour of weights. it's ok, i'll get the cardio in Monday for sure!

I feel no regret! finally, this time, solid fun, man. many of you will dislike this...

I partied at the bar, kissing and dancing with a guy I met there. a nice, good looking, athletic build, nice guy haha...from what i could tell on first impression.

we slept together...and did all sorts of sexual activities...for at least two hours if not more after the bar.  fantastic, not a single regret. it should be fun at 28 years old, why not?

crazy night....and JUST WHAT I NEEDED. always use protection of course....but if you're an adult, not married, not in a relationship....sexual activities can be quite fun once in awhile, no!?

my opinion, of course.

Dislike??? Not this girl! LOl I say you are a responsible young, healthy girl who has needs and anyone who says they don't would be lying! As R.Kelly would say:I don't see nothing wrong"....LOl Haave a good one girlie!

2200 calories. sorta feeling bad lately about life.

it seems i have gained weight and i do weigh more like 133-134 now. i'm not changing my weight on top though. and the massage that i promised myself and tentatively scheduled for next weekend might have to be delayed. I will ONLY go if i weigh 129 or less. that's my promise to myself.

i did no extra cardio at the gym today. only a little, little bit of walking today.

i did do an hour of weights at the gym, well, more like 45-50 minutes.

was rushed.

work was decent. i taught 5 music lessons after. thank gosh my gym is only 15 minutes away from work and 20 minutes or so from my house.

goodnight all.

i had a diet coke during the morning, then later two atkins style bars....and my stomach was very messed up by this afternoon.  i had so much gas, man! and, with all the sitting i've been doing at work all day, it just gets worse.  i actually had uncontrollable gas and practically diarrhea...i guess this means i can't eat everything and anything i want anymore, without consequences.

calories are really low...in a good way...about 1500-1600 today! very good.

no exercise, i was teaching lessons after work, got home at 9pm...need sleep.

i was bloated today, i had almost a quart of pickles last night from a deli. oh man, goodnight!

sounds like it might have been the pickles? I hate pickles so I'll blame them lol Hope your feeling better today :)

loveray on 03/04/2011:
yikes all of those diet things really make me feel weird too - especially after cutting out of my diet. whenever i have them i feel terrible - hope you are feeling better. i do love some pickles though, but every time i eat them i wake up with swollen hands!

i may be a little over 132, but i'm keeping that weight there, bc i am motivated to get right back there! as of late, my body has been bloated, very full. i guess i'm eating a lot of volume when it comes to my food choices. last night i had a big salad and whole red pepper with my dinner which was also quite large.

breakfast: hungry day...4 rice cakes 160, chocolate 40, oatmeal 200, cottage cheese 150: 550.

snacks: peanut butter crackers...up to around 400 calories.

lunch: big banana 150, veggie burger sandwich 300: 450

snack: change of plans,  I had something different for lunch so i had my lunch here, without banana. 300, then coffee 50.

dinner: salad w. dressing 50, tofu 150, rice crackers 160...around 400.

total: 2150 ... GOOD, considering everything i ate!

ended up with a 3 mi walk at the park :-)

i know you will make your goal!! i have been feeling bloated lately as well - we can blame it on the moon or something:)

V on 03/01/2011:
I hope you have a wonderful day and I am sure that massage will feel extra sweet after all of your hard work :)

Umpqua on 03/01/2011:
My feeling is that you can't eat too much salad or veggies. I'm sure you'll be back down in a day or 2, you're doing great. Have a good one!

legcramps on 03/01/2011:
drink lots of water!!!

moogy on 03/01/2011:
You are so close to your goal. Further incentive to stick with it and say focused and yes drink lots of water!!
