Hoping that you had a nice relaxing weekend :) I can only imagine how tough it is to get gas there. Are you still driving to work now that there is a gas shortage? Just curious. Have a great evening :)

Thank you all for your compassion & concern for so many people in need on the East Coast after the hurricane.  I am doing well over here, power back, and I didn't lose anyting. There are so many people far less fortunate. :(

recently, weight stable around 122...today i plan on a jog in the AM and weights later on today at the gym...i will be home most of the day, i plan to read magazines, stop by the library for a book(s), cook, finish laundry :-)...and not use gas! lol. maybe the supermarket since most everything was thrown out bc we had lost power several days!  (although haha i just remembered i have some food my boss gave me...chicken legs lol!)

5am & 7am early snack & breakfast: bars 460

9am snacking: 2 small plums 90...and bar...230

11am so hungry...must be all the diet sodas i've been having all morning!

11am early lunch: english muffin corn flavor with two bran crisps inside lol 180....ok and some of the chicken legs my boss cooked wow they are good! damn....400 at least...calories more.

1350, good...just downloading music, then going for a ruN!

2020...and a bar.

2250, perfect.

Ohh man! It's great to have power and internet again! :-)

I feel for those who lost cars and homes and their lives.  Here, we are far enough from the beach to really only lose power from the high winds knocking down trees and power lines.

calories were decent throughout those days. too many protein bars for sure.

i went back to work today.

calories: 1970.

cardio: one hour

goodnight!

Up early, basically did all my food shopping for the next 2 weeks lol. we are getting a hurricane early this week so i wanted to get my trip to the supermarket out of the way since i was up and had the time this morning. I was there at 7am since it's open 24 hours...now i just need to cook all the tasty veggies i bought! I'd like to make a stir-fry with mushrooms, eggplant, peppers, bok choy...and i think i bought some other veggies but those are the basics. 

i also bought a ton of yogurts and soy milk - they don't expire for like 2 months so basically i don't need to buy these things again for 2-4 weeks. saves me annoying trips to the supermarket to go less often - excpet for fruit/veggies.

...just need to find some fruit - the supermarket was out of my fave  - plums! :-)

breakfast: wheat/fiber warm cereal 160 and almond milk 40, protein bar total 420 - GREAT...oh and a low cal drink. 450. nice.

snack:

around 2400 cal at most. = very good considering i had dinner twice in the city and dessert lol...very healthy dinners though - mostly veggies & shrimp & tofu....dessert was apple pie small piece with some whipped cream and walnuts.

exercise: some walking at home, walking in the city also a lil bit, bootcamp.

Mostly teas and liquids last night =  real low weight. first time in years. Almost to my first goal! 115 is my overall goal. 

Bootcamp has helped, I will be taking a break from it starting after my last class this Saturday :(....I do plan to do other activities instead, but bootcamp was definitely a stimulator in my endurance, fitness, weightloss, and motivation...

Breakfast:

exercise tonight: either walking or jogging.

2250 calories.

full weights routine, and an hour of leisure walking :-)

Congrats on your loss and for keeping up with bootcamp for so long!

Congrats on your loss!


legcramps on 10/26/2012:
I just read your entry before this one. I know there are different reasons people have for needing to hang on to their jobs, but I gotta say I probably wouldn't stick around if this was happening to me. In fact, i'd probably threaten him with legal action if it continued. I'm just saying i'd have an INCREDIBLY difficult time letting that go. In other news, great work on the loss! A break from bootcamp sucks, but it might be nice to try out some other activities instead. Either way, ENJOY your weekend!

I am under a lot of stress.  I never sleep enough.  I am waking up constantly throughout the night many times because of my mom waking me or my dad in the morning getting ready.  Moreover,  I have a boss that masturbates by touching himself over his pants while I sit next to him doing work.  I do not take it personally, instead, I feel horrible for HIM that he cannot control himself. I have a ****ty job and I cannot wait to get out of it (but i have to WAIT A LONG TIME maybe a little over a year more!) until I get into the NYPD...but maybe I can speed it up, just maybe.

maybe I can get the connections happening and get into the July class, but I do not think so,bc i think that would be too fast a process.

oh dear lord that is so weird! (boss) good luck with everything!!! Hope you can get out of your job situation!


V on 10/25/2012:
OMG, girl I am so sorry that your boss can't control his urges..Doe he do this around everyone or just you? Either way that is so disgusting, I see why you are so stressed, you shouldn't have to put up with that but I know you need the job. Man I hope you get into the academy soon.. My youngest brother is going through the same situation with CFD..He took aced the tests to get in the Fire Academy and now it is just a long waiting process and the hiring freeze out :( Wishing for the best for you <3
