Weight: 131.0

I bought an abdominal exercise device called SLENDERTONE. I'm happy to report that over the 3 weeks or so that i've been using it, i've noticed changes, good ones, and that my abs are more toned. I use it almost every night, usually when sitting at my computer. It sends electrical pulses to your abs. If any of you are interested in firming your abs and you've had it with doing ab work, lol, use it. A little bit pricey, but worth it in the long run.  I'm gonna keep updating you all in a month or so.

 

weight a little up this AM, but I did have a lot of volume with my food for dinner. but i do have to be careful. calories have been higher lately.

Remember the guy I went out with last Friday night? We are hanging out tonight again. I am house-sitting, as well. This is gonna be a crazy night!   :-)

breakfast: strawberries, frozen kefir. 250.

snacks: 350

large lunch, but for some reason i was  VERY VERY hungry, it was strange: around 850 cal, could be more, but i'm not thinking about that...

(1500)

snack: 100 cal pringles pack and 1/2 greek yogurt, diet snapple. 150

tsf: 1650 = very good.

must clean bathroom and get nails done...

 

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

Sorry to hear about your sleep problems- that's no fun. You've probably already thought about this- are you drinking anything with caffeine or chocolate in the afternoon or evening?

dang. my weight is still up by one pound....i'm doing good, and i hope it's lost by the end of the week!!!

breakfast: yogurts and heathier, some fiber, chips. for me,having chips, especially if a healthier variety, is like having bread or any other whole grain. and some more yogurt. total: 400. good.

got into the smallest of car accidents today with a truck.  yes, a truck.  all is good, except part of my car, it's not really that much damage, but will be very expensive. i admit it here, i was sorta at fault here. i was driving too close to the truck, which was turning, and as he turned, he skimmed my car. i admit i was driving sorta recklessly.

calories before car issue: 1,000

calories after: greek yogurt/jello: 250, some cucumber salad 50, lightly sauteed veggies from my cooking on Sunday 100, and, lastly, ice cream 360: total: 760. too much, yes, but overall calories today are fine.

1760.

exercise: none, because i had to wait, with the truck driver, 2 and a half hours for the cops to arrive.  down in the same, slightly dangerous neighborhood, there was a bank robbery and all the cops in the area were over there. we waited 2.5 hours for the cops in order to have the accident report written. it was a long afternoon.  that's what happens when you have an accident, anyways...

wow, it's now midnight. i can't sleep, for the past TWO weeks, i've been up late practically every night....but,

i am still doing nicely this summer on weightloss! :-D

I have recovered from Saturday's night and last Friday night's eating craziness. I am feeling so much better and excited as well, for the weekend! I plan to be at the beach and also, more importantly, meet up with this guy I have known for awhile, not well, but that I went on a couple dates with years ago.  We plan to meet up Friday evening. It may just be for fun...not serious dating. and this is really where i am at now, anyways. I don't want anything serious in my life right now...updates to come...if all works out well, of course!

food: breakfast: 350

snacks: 250

lunch: 600.

snacks: 200

dinner: 450.

total: 1850. perfect.

exercise: 3 mi.
