(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 121.5

2% greek yogurt with stevia, chia, flax: 200

excellent calorie day bc i had a "light" breakfast & lunch (light for me!) of 400 cal and not the typical 600-800 i have been eating at work and home on weekends, lol.

total cals were excellent, 1700!  (i actually lose weight, slowly but always, at this calorie level!)  ...lifting weights is wonderful for this reason!

exercise: decent! around 5 miles for the day. walking only...because my ankle/shin is still recovering...and i would like to jog/walk on Sunday! tomorrow will also maybe involve jogging.  1.5 mi at lunch, .5 miles to/from car, 3 mi after work.  my goal is the 5 mi, but truly i usually get in more like 3.5-4 miles.

Progress as of today: 3.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

I am looking foward to consuming a lot of veggies and having a good weekend. today will be sorta relaxed after bootcamp. just plannning to see my grandma, go to the supermarket, and walk at the gym maybe an hour or so. tomorrow i will exercise at the gym in the AM, no bootcamp, and drive an hour or so upstate to see my best friend in Westchester, NY.  that's it.

i haven't asked my boss, but i am planning to take Wednesday off - if he says no, which I hope he doesn't!!!, I am going to see my future 1 bed co-op apartment that afternoon at 5pm (i'd have to leave work no matter what early!) and if i have the day off, which i should!!, i will go to bootcamp in the AM and a dermatologist apt at 2pm as well on Wednesday. I really am going to move out soon!

Great job yesterday; and good start to today! Have a great weekend.


niftyjack on 01/25/2013:
Good try at the gym! Did you sprain your ankle, or is it just being tetchy? If it still hurts the next time, it might be a good idea to wrap a bandage around it nice and tight for support. Or, if it's really bad, maybe give the poor thing a day or two to recover?
