(count calories/exercise/relaxing thoughts!)
Weight: 135.0

hello again. at the library to use the computer...

thursday was kinda ****tttyyyy in the end - 3200 calories only bc i was teaching EIGHT music lessons that evening, which took me away from anymore senseless eating...but that's done with, :-)

friday was better, not great though, 2500 calories.

today: hmmm, so far - 1500 cal, pretty good, will probably have up to 1900 or 2000 today, making it a good day.

i guess that day that i ate around 1300 calories kinda backfired this past week, causing me too eat more the following days. anyways, no need to obsess, right?!

but my plan remains, to lose weight.  right now, i'm a bit sensitive about my arms. they feel to big/fat. mostly big though. and i know that if i can knock off the pounds, get back in the 120s which remains my goal, i will definitely look MUCH better.  once i break under 130, i always feel a lot leaner, especially bc of all the muscle i have gained from weights and pushups/pullups.  I've been keeping up with pull-ups and the gym and i have noticed i have finally gotten better, and soon i will use less weight to "help me." pull-ups are one of the exercises where the MORE weight you use, the MORE help you are giving yourself. the hardest way to do pullups is when you don't use any added extra weights to push you back up - and you do it all by yourself! one day, ladies, one day!

 what else!? i have some dilemnas coming up - my dad has gotten me for an interview for a job not in the health field or teaching field - just so i can have a full time job. i am not really excited about this, at all. I feel i shouldn't take it, because it will only guarantee me employment now - and not down the road. I feel that by taking the job i will be absolutely running away from everything i ever tried to work for in life. also, if i were to get the job, the hours would make it so that the lessons i teach would interfere and i'd have to get rid of some students/try to move them to other times - which probably wouldn't work out at all since there's no other times or space to teach at the studio.

although i do want a full time job, i feel almost not ready for it - and also i want a job in a field i have trained in. I don't like the idea of getting a job elsewhere, in something that is totally new to me. i do want to prove to myself that i can make a living doing something i have went to school for...be successful in the paths i have chosen.  I am nervous that by doing anything else, that whenever the job ends (like 2 or 4 years from now) i'll be searching, again, for a job.  I kinda want to prevent this - by getting a job in a field that i do have training in, and therefore there is better certainty that i'd be working in the field for years to come. not just a temporary full time job for a company and then looking again.

the interview is supposedly this coming Wednesday, day before Thanksgiving, and located in the city or maybe Queens, NY.  I promised a friend i might spend Wednesday night with here - sorta upstate a little that night. I may not be able to, now.  of course a job interview is more important, it's just i'm not looking foward to it, that's all. probably hard to understand to you outsiders, who may not be up to date with my current situations! haha.  I told her i'd go to happy hour with her, as i've promised for a VERY long time what we'd celebrate then...i will feel a little bad no going...we'll see.

i hope to get called to substitute next week, at least one of the days - hopefully Monday. An extra $100 is nice, isn't it?! but it really isn't extra, i know i'll probably have spent it before it even reaches my bank account!

what else!? it's only 7:08. can you believe it? seems that it really does get dark early these days! i was at the park and it was only 5pm...and so dark! hopefully they will take away daylight savings time in the next few years if we are lucky. i could use some more afternoon/evening light hours.

other than all of this, i need to fix a bike tire so i can bike to get the papers - i haven't biked in at least a couple months...and the weather is still alright for biking! i should do it before it's too late!

alright, enough rambling...

goodnight all.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

Lots of people take other jobs while waiting/looking for the one they really want. It depends on your circumstances, if you can afford to hold down part time work while looking for the job you want or if, financially, you need to go full time. Good luck.


loveray on 11/20/2010:
what is the job that your dad tried to hook you up with? definitely dont give up on your dream, but being open to all possibilities is always helpful, in my experience. :) xo

yes never give up what is truly in your heart!!! BTW HATE DST :(

doing OK. went off diet of no breads/milk/starchy carbs for the past two days which is totally OK. my body needed to!

haven't been called to sub these past couple days, could have used the money, but was tired anyway from tuesday's "double shift" of work and then 8 lessons. so, in a way, i'm looking foward to a good, sorta lazy/sorta not weekend.

sunday should prove busy, anyways.

have a good one, ladies!

Weight: 135.0

(i may still be more like 137lbs, but i changed it to 135, because this is the direction i  am looking, my goal is remaining to get into the 120's. and with the increase in activities/busy lifestyle substitute teaching, it will be an easier goal to reach no doubt!)

I have been substitute teaching on Monday and Tuesday. I was supposed to go in today, too, but didn't realize my phone was ringing this morning at 7:37am.  I didn't know they even called that late, when the school day starts at 8:20am. I live about 10-20 minutes away, so it could have worked. Now i know, for next time, to always have my phone by my side even if i run downstairs to do laundry in the morning.

In a way, i am glad not to sub today because yesterday i had a full day with 5 year olds (which was enjoyable!) but also had to teach EIGHT music lessons, a half hour each, after school! It was like two full days of work yesterday! I got home around 9:30pm and was totally pooped. My mind was still amped up from the day, but I did no exercise, and couldn't even sleep well. I was constantly waking up, all night. So, if i did have to sub today, i would have definitely been tired. Today, I plan on some cardio, which i probably got in enough walking around yesterday, and the weights which i would rather have done yesterday.

I don't want to let exercise fall by the wayside, and it won't. but, there has already been a reduction in the amount of cardio i do. and like i said, yesterday, and added none into my routine at all. it was the first day without cardio in weeks, actually!

as far as eating yesterday, i was so busy and rushing, and i kept food out of sight on purpose. my calories were probably no more than 1300 which is the lowest they have been in months.

so this morning i was quite hungry, and luckily stuck to my protein/veggie breakfast: one egg and lots of eggwhites, around 150 calories, and this is new just for today - two cucumbers with balsamic vinegrette dressing! yes, you heard right!, and even though i was full, i was craving carbs and had a huge apple. I'm being kind, estimating the total only at 450 calories and boy was everything good.

i am not at my alma mater university, using the computers and checking email. i had a vegan protein bar they sell here, 200 calories.

after staying here, i will probably take a walk around my community, or the park, i haven't really decided - but i know i should get outside for a bit. :-) and weights tonight, at the time that the hottie goes, so that i can gain some energy and motivation off that poor soul! (haha, if he ever knew he was my motivation...!)

I am going to call about a job i was very interested in since i've heard nothing back and it's been about two weeks. they've probably chosen the candidates but i need to check bc i 've been thinking about it nonstop. its a job in NY, about 3 hours away from me. i'd have to relocate...but i would WANT to. it's a tenure track job, one that has the possibility to be mine for a long time. but, like i said, it's far and they may have candidates of their own already in mind. i've applied weeks ago, but the start date is february 1st - a long time from now. it's my favorite grades/subject: beginner and intermediate bands, grades 5 and 6. the PERFECT JOB. so we'll see!

happy eating.

i've been living off of protein bars and coffee w. soymilk/splenda, and monster drinks...and some water thrown in, too. veggies/egg in the AM for breakfast, and usually less healthy things as the day progresses. it's really easy to count calories this way, and i'm fine with it, for now. but that's my side of the "dietdiary" story.

i hope you are all well :-)

loveray on 11/17/2010:
haha, a little poop talk is good for everyone! :) im almost to a full split, but my hamstrings are still a little too tight with all of the walking and strength training i have been doing. the best thing when i was learning is to get into a low-lunge and then prepare yourself with a foam block under your front hamstring...as things start to settle (AKA loosen up) you can turn the block to a lower level...and eventually your leg will be on the floor!! good luck!

hello all!

exercise today: 1 hour and 30 min of moderate/slow walking at the park. it was beautiful for this time of year, nice and relatively "warm." also, i was on my feet all day subbing and couldn't imagine doing anything more strenuous, especially the elliptical, i just couldn't stand in place, more, on that machine at the gym when the weather is just so nice!

i am doing alright. same weight. not really going low carb, but staying away from the dairy and the processed carbs....except for all the different nutrition bars i have been eating...and they contain sugar, believe me! but they are good and that's where i 'm at for now.

always continuing with weights, by the way! i love lifting weights.

i have also been starting substitute teaching...i am thankful to be back in the schools. :-) and giving private lessons!

stay well.

Ooh! celsius has many flavors now! ginger ale is my fave so far, they also have cola,orange both yummy as well...Ones I dont like mango greentea, or raspberry tea Yuccky some things should never exist in a can together, oh i think there is a berry one too..I like celsius because it doesn't give you that jittery nervous feeling like other energy drinks, AND it burns 100 cals by just drinking it and even more if you take before workouts :)

I've done low carb plenty of times and it really works for me. It's hard to do it for any length of time, but I think your body adapts to it after a while. Congrats on the job!

Glad to see you plugging in your diary again.

I like the spiciness of kimchi, too. I've always bought kimchi ready made but last week I went to the korean grocery store near my house armed with my Korean cookbook which my husband received as a gift from the Korean Embassy at one of the functions he attended there. I was able to find an employee (a woman) who spoke English very well and helped me with the ingredients - she recommended me to use the very same ingredients she uses herself and taught me to do it the "correct way" - not the way my hoity-toity recipe. So, I've made a genuine korean kimchi at home!


loveray on 11/16/2010:
i miss you!! i know, the bars can be good sometimes...but i get easily addicted and they are definitely not good for eating less processed...the think thin bars are very unprocessed kind of like larabar, but they taste so amazing and have more protein than larabar. only issue is i like the chocolate flavor and it makes me crave real chocolate badly! think i will give those a rest for a little while and see what happens:) sending lots of love and hope you can join us more often!

You know, I wonder what is going on with GG these days!!! Are you out there!? How is college? Do you still have the same diet!? what's up girl!

ok....

I am currently eating a VERY carb diet. It's my third day and, yes, i'm having lots of trouble doing it. I keep reminding myself that i'll be OK in the end....i have VERY LITTLE energy...but i feel that this is moreso because i was eating so many carbs beforehand. anyways, it's not a long-term diet, but at least till thanksgiving. I have a wedding to go to in January and I do have a real goal to weigh in the 120's by then! right now, i'm at 137.

I also feel like death because i took a friend's challenging Yoga class, not hot yoga, Dahn yoga i think, and i took it after i had started this very low carb diet...and my body didn't get carbs after the strenuous workout - including lots of squats and lunges which i am not accustomed to doing - so i am VERY, VERY sore! Not a bad thing, but it's hard to discern between sore and tired....and sore and lethargic! it's hard to tell if it's the diet or the soreness!

otherwise, i'm good.

I'm trying for more veggies. and although it's low carb, i've been eating a tremendous amount of calories per day, so far always above 2000.  I figure i will tackle that soon too, trying to lower calories. but right now, i'm focussing on veggies, less carbs, and proteins - which i'm having more of - even if that includes Salami! haha.

stay well, everyone!

ps- the computer is still broken so i am on here far less often lately! as you can see!

Weight: 138.0

getting by...doing my thing. teaching music lessons.

still going to the gym and keeping it up to the best i can with the weights, pushups, abs (which are mostly flab at the moment and they will improve), and now pullups with the help of the machine so that i am not pulling up without some assist on part of the weights.

cardio is alright. i tend to do at least 3 miles a day, usually a little bit more. the rest of the day i am mostly sitting, and not very active.

last time i weighed, about a week ago, i was 138. that's actually astounding, since i tend to binge at least once a week...

so far, 1250 calories...

snack:

dinner:

exercise: 3.5 mi walk, weights in the PM.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

I go a massage therapy school for massages. They have a booming business and are very reputable. They have graduates who have been there a number of years and students who need their hours of practice. Master Graduates are $60/hr and Graduates are $45/hr. Students are only $35/hr and are very good usually because they aren't worn out! I used to go somewhere else and had a man that I really liked, but when I moved my office that place became inconvenient. The massage school has mostly females and the one I really like is usually booked weeks in advance. She is very strong. The one I had last night was very good. I have tension in lots of trigger points and massage helps those points relax. I always say I'm going to get one per month - but I never do. I still have $60 on a gift certificate...and my birthday is coming up!


loveray on 10/12/2010:
yum!! i would like to have a souffle like that. the peanut butter and apples is the perfect meal, as according to my holistic guru. of course, he wants me to eat all natural PB, not the good sugary kind;) i am quitting coffee for now, or limiting strictly my amounts. its mostly just to help my hormones get back into whack, get sleep patterns under control and also limit the artificial sweeteners and creamers i have been using. i have some truvia and whole milk for my tea in case i get the craving for coffee. for now, black tea and yerba mate have been doing the job at keeping my caffeine and sugar cravings at bay:) it's really hard committing to eating this way, but i feel like my insides are so much better for the effort! love to you.

To answer your question after talking with sweetpea and umpqua i have decided to lose a few more maybe another 10 or so...With my trip to Chicago for xmas i want to be able to enjoy sampling all the foods without going overboard and without the stress of guilt...When i reach my goal i plan to continue on with cooking for the week and allowing myself maybe 1 cheat day...When i mean cheat it is definitely not going to be fast foods, I mean going out to a nice restaurant and enjoying small portions of things i won't normally eat and allowing a glass of wine or two( i truly miss vino it's been almost 6 months since i had it :( ) Good luck with keeping those calories down later! Have a good day :)

i just read your post on Loveray's page and i too suffer from staining of the lower front teeth as well...you can as weird as it sounds sip from a straw...I also made a little investment in those whitening strips and it really works, there are also toothpastes that are made for avid coffee drinkers..


Umpqua on 10/12/2010:
Thanks for your kind words and for pointing out how much I've lost. I hadn't really thought about my progress since March - it gave me a big boost! :) I posted the eggplant/polenta recipe in the Recipes forum. It's just kind of a rough guide since I sort of make it up as I go along. I hope you have a great day!

The souffle sounds interesting. I'm not sure I would have thought to put those ingredients together. How did it taste? Have a great day.

I wish I could claim credit for the monthly challenge idea. Liza36 started it off two months ago with her 30 days of exercise, I just thought it would be something I could focus on becuase I had been bingeing a bit and needed to pull in my reins. It worked out really well, I feel as if I am in control of the food instead of the other way round now. I am stepping it up for next month as I am keeping a trigger food in the house just to prove to myself that I am in control. We'll see how I go!! Thank you for your support, I appreciate it very much.:)

Turnips are awesome, You can buy them at Walmart or most supermarkets. You can mix turnips with mustard greens. YUMMY! Get you some turkey bacon- boil bacon until very tender. Then put greens in same boiling water. Not much water, because you want them to kind of steam cook. ( I buy the already cleaned and cut greens in a bag at Walmart. ) You can also buy frozen turnips in the frozen veggie dept. in most stores. Cook greens with seasoning salt or Mrs Dash. I spray canola oil in my greens, as they are cooking. Its like Pam oil spray. When greens turn dark, they should be about done. That's it! Enjoy & Take Care!
