(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 129.0

again, a low cal day.

breakfast: fruit and small egg sandwich with tomato: 300.

snack: protein drink 200. other stuff: 50 a candy.

lunch: tasty chips and another egg white sandwich definitely small and light sandwich with tomato, fruit 550.

dinner: plum 50, sandwich (fried chicken on bun) total 450.

snack: orange pepper 50, orange 100.

total: 1650 pretty perfect if you ask me.

exercise: many pushups (probably 200 in all today) and cardio on the elliptical for about 35 min.  i am ashamed that i don't do more cardio but i don't have so much time lately. i started work at 7am and left at 6:30pm. i had dinner in my car, actually got home around 8 and went to the gym after changing and then got home around 9pm. so i really don't want to do much more - not today - no time in my opinion.

Progress as of today: 6 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Weight: 129.0

weight - 131-132 but i am still bloated and PMSing...it will probably drop off soon.

breakfast: large apple 140, hot wheat cereal and milk 200: 340.

weirdest day. i should type about it...but i have got to go to bed NOW. i am overly exhausted, didn't sleep well last night and today was VERY busy.

exercise: NONE. sucks!

calories: 1200...good but i don't really aim to eat this low bc it has a tendency to backfire on me. i tend to binge when i eat too low. but i don't have an appetite and i'm tired. which is good.

goodnight ladies, thanks for your warm comments.  i send you all hugs and love.

aside from the weird day, i worked two hours overtime till 6:30, drove to therapy and 7:30, got home at 9 and now i'm gonna be asleep soon. tomorrow i start work at 7am.. gah!

7am - banana. 110, fiber one and milk, greek yogurt w. two chocolate truffles slightly warmed and mixed in! 550 total yum including banana.

lunch: 3 sorta big plums 150, 910 calories at lunch, very large after 30 min bike ride and hot yoga.

today is kinda a forget and forgive type of eating day. i have a holiday dinner tonight, not a good day to place limits.

total cal so far: arleady 1460. totally ok. i will indulge a bit today for sure.

I'm gonna be good to myself: no binging at diner. I did enjoy a rainbow cookie, shortbread cookie, and one other cookie for dessert. all in all, very fair and the actual dinner was healthy to boot. I had briscuit (meat) with some roasted potatoes, carrots, and green beans.

I will be kind to my mind!...by saying i had 2200 calories today. NOT a binge, healthy day. wonderful. I feel good.

All of my binging lately has given me an excess of around 7500 calories, 2 extra pounds for me. yay! just kidding on the excitement of gaining pounds! lol. I will have to work to get rid of it, but something tells me I'm gonna do it and keep doing it. It is really not that hard for me to lose weight when I keep up with lifting weights because the body burns more calories overall each day....and cardio I am trying to increase. Whenever i do get more cardio in and weights are done, I lose weight almost easily!  Also, on these few days off, I will kick my own A$$ by taking some bikram (hot) yoga classes and double up on them - kinda like bootcamp bikram! it will be VERY TOUGH. but i want the challenge. eating wise, the only thing i will not do is binge. But i can eat, as usual, whatever I want to.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Monday was also terrible binging....

Today started off rocky and got better. 2500 calories =  a much better day than the 5,000 calories per day on Sunday + Monday. I'm gonna be OK. I just needed to get it off my chest. thank you.

exercise: light bike riding for 1/2 hour, weights for 1.5 hardcore hours! :-)

work: 2 hours overtime.

I got to the gym around 8 and stayed until around 9:30.

tomorrow i have work to get up for, but it's the last day for my week so that's why i don't mind getting to bed a little late tonight. :-) tomorrow is like Friday for me!
