(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 123.0

plan for tonight is to leave work around 4:30 and go home for early dinner followed by swim. go to bed early. similar for Friday, but probably weights.

this week is really messed up.  I skipped exercise Monday night due to exhaustion and last night bc I went to physical therapy and then was too tired to leave my apt again to go swim. so no exercise, twice in a week. I hardly EVER do something like that.

breakfast: 2 weight watchers wraps 160, with sunflower seed butter 200, a banana 120, and almond milk 50: 530, good.

snack: bar, coffee?

LEGS have gotten a bit worse, i don't know why, they were starting to recover...

anyways, food is pretty good today so far...

1350 cal since lunch....

snack on the way home: probably an apple...

dinner at deli before driving home: 550

1900...forcing myself to the pool........... :-(

after the pool I felt better, stopped by a supermarket with a lot of ready-made and cooked veggies.

around 2250 total cal, fine.

exercise: 35 minutes in pool :-D

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

skinnygrlwithin on 05/23/2013:
You're overtired and definitely in need of rest, don't beat yourself up for not making it to the gym as much as you wanted to. Sometimes rest is just as important as the workout.

Puddles on 05/23/2013:
Just don't give up we all have messed up weeks. Wishing you a great day.

grannyannie on 05/23/2013:
Yea, overtired makes it hard to workout. I've sometimes forced myself anyway, sometimes finish, sometimes not. Hang in there!

nenak on 05/23/2013:
Your hanging on despite the week throwing everything it has at you x

legcramps on 05/23/2013:
Get some rest tonight. EARLY BEDTIME. Repeat that three times. Then write it on a sticky note with black marker and post it on your t.v. and bathroom mirror. And then tell a co-worker that "you really need to get to bed early tonight". If you don't get some rest, your workouts will suffer and you won't get the best out of 'em. Why do them if you can't get your best from them?

legcramps on 05/23/2013:
P.S. Sometimes meditation puts me to sleep, because self-reflection is boring. No i'm just kidding, but it might help relax you enough to fall asleep faster.

legcramps on 05/23/2013:
P.S.S. and then, there's always wine...

V on 05/23/2013:
LOL @ legcramps, ditto what she said especially about the wine ;) hahahaha

I seriously hope that jerk of a boss of yours will let you leave work early so you can get a swim in and in bed early..

Have a wonderful evening HOP <3

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 123.0

too hungry: 2 fiber one rolls, 220, almond milk a ton 120, sunflower seed butter 100, chips 300, sesame oil 100: 840

snack: protein bar, some coffee 310 approx.

1150 cal so far, before lunch. maybe skipping swim tonight and just going on my own...it's too late at night for the class (9pm is toooo late!) I will just go the last day, next week Wednesday at 9pm and maybe take a vacation day on Thursday.

really, i just need to catch up on sleep...and that 9pm class sucks. i feel bad paying and missing so many, more than half but oh well. (I will practice / swim on my own, EARLIER in the evening in efforts to continue my exercise but not skimp out on necessary sleep as I'm already shot this week)

lunch: "healthy" wrap 600 fried egg whites, turkey, wheat wrap, some tomato. diet snapple, yeah, bad girl having a diet drink. was good.

1750 = good so far and i can end the day well by having moderate snacks/dinner

car ride home: most of a big apple, small plum tomato, small Kirby cucumber: 100 or so


light dinner: tons of spinach, heated in microwave with dressing 120, cheese in a wrap 140, some strawberries 50: 300 or so, good.

2150...thinking about skipping out on exercise...probably not the best decision...but tired!

skipped all exercise. and had two granola bars that I was craving since the morning.

2450, decent.


Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Puddles on 05/22/2013:
have a great day.

Umpqua on 05/22/2013:
I hope you have an excellent day!

nenak on 05/22/2013:
You need to catch up with your rest then you might get back to the class it is quite late

legcramps on 05/22/2013:
Sounds like you had an interesting weekend ;) Have a good one today.

Oh, and FULL waxing??? Wow, I thought I was pretty tough just getting my legs done... LOL.

nenak on 05/22/2013:
If you sign up you kinda know It's always available when you can manage it so I'd probably do the same x

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 123.0

around 2000 calories. not good, GREAT.

exercise: maybe even close to 1.5 hours of weights, upper body, pushups, abs, and legs (legs to me right now is just inner/outer thighs) as my legs are still not good at all. did it all & I feel so much better tonight, like it's the first time I actually feel awake during this entire day! feels good when the blood is flowing faster through your body's veins, you know!?

dinner was light, with a big apple on the car ride home as well. then, after my workout, I went next door for healthier frozen yogurt...better alternative to ice cream and good after a hardcore weights workout! :-D

goodnight. in bed a tad late bc I had to wait till after I got home to do laundry...is ok! goodnight ladies!



Lunch was good: change of pace: wheat wrap with fried egg whites & turkey & spicy mustard. around 550

Feeling a little better, itching to leave at 5...maybe I will strike the nerve to say I need to.

calories up until after lunch: 1250 = GREAT...


10am at work:

Ladies, I feel so tired I do not know what to do.  I have a headache, slightly dizzy, my stomach bothers me.   It's not upset, just feels like someone is constantly punching me.  I am not sure I can get through this workday, let alone week.  I already skipped out on exericse last night...now praying i get my wind back in me so that I can go tonight...

10am snack: decaf coffee with a lot of milk (or may have been cream) 100, bar 200= 300


earlier entries:

7am Breakfast: 2 fiber one rolls 220, almond milk 60 or so, sunflower seed butter 100= 400 or so.

3am and i'm awake. I will try to go back to sleep, for sure. even though Sunday night was fun, there's no way that I can get together with him again late before work...my whole week got screwed up.  it's ok though, bc I knew this might happen. I even skipped all exercise after work yesterday bc I was so tired. luckily, I made good choices, didn't overeat, and went to bed shortly after dinner...like around 7:30pm...

(I did go back to sleep again after I woke up at 3am...seems I really needed to try to catch up a bit on sleep last night. I probably slept overall 8-9 hours.  I wish I could just work my set hours today & come home, have dinner, swim, and go to bed....30 minutes overtime is really frustrating...)

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 05/21/2013:
Hope the week improves. At least you got a lot of good sleep!

Puddles on 05/21/2013:
Take care of yourself. Hope your week gets better and have a good day.

getmebackto150 on 05/21/2013:
I hope you feel better soon!! Yuck, its no fun feeling off:(

skinnygrlwithin on 05/21/2013:
The lack of sleep definitely sounds like it's catching up with you... get some rest and go easy on yourself.

nenak on 05/21/2013:
Hope you feel better soon

Umpqua on 05/21/2013:
I hope you get back on track with your sleep. RE microwaving the muffins, have you checked out Chocolate Covered Katie's site? Lots of great healthy recipes and she has tons of microwave options.


V on 05/21/2013:
Well it can't hurt to ask to leave early, it's worth a shot right? I hope you have a restful FULL night's sleep <3

last night was great with the guy.  we are friends...with benefits...but I feel he is VERY good to me & a nice guy...

I was VERY tired at work for obvious reasons, we fell asleep probably for 2 hours, but he left at 1am late!

I don't regret it. but my boss could tell I was beat! lol haha.  definitely cannot do this again in the near future. I can't believe how much was taken out of me from just staying up late!!! gosh...

not much of an appetite actually...whatever we did last night completely suppressed it

calories so far: 1750 or so, good. I may skip the pool...I am only going if I can get some sleep between now & then (will try to get at least an hour or two now..if I can't I may skip...)

I skipped exercise on Monday (actually slept through my phone alarm to get up around 8pm)....and Tuesday shall be swimming I think...weights planned for Thursday only...

around 1950, woke up and ate 200 calories (2) fiber one hamburger buns at close to 10pm.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

breakfast: cereal & almond milk: 250, great.

snack: fiber one bar from my car on the way to physical therapy was hungry 100

big, satisfying - exactly what I needed - lunch: finally, some quality protein: chicken drumstick with skin around 250 & a chicken thigh 150 or so, on a fiber one roll 100 and some chips 150 (so good, finally, real food and not a veggie burger or some crap like that. and the chicken I had just bought, from the store, a cooked bird and was still nice and warm ready to eat...how could you just stick it in the fridge, right!?)  650 good ones.

total so far: 1000 will save a yogurt or cottage cheese for a snack instead of having it now ;-) I am going to lose the weight, yes I am!

I have few plans today, I will make everything right:

(already went to physical therapy & supermarket & completed and emailed my work assignment)...12:45pm only!

next stop: get fully waxed, then gym, then swim, then that's it home and relax, later the guy is coming over.

have a great day, I am going to make my life work no matter that is coming my way, I cannot fail again! and I am going to succeed that is it. so glad the work assignment is done, now I can get on with my weekend...:-D


total: around 1700, success.

1500 & 700...plus 200 cals on the way home from work = 2400...

maybe a snack later, or maybe skipping the pool and going to sleep??

1500 cal before the end of work...

1900 before gym...

NYPD application was submitted....now I wait for the next step. the next step will be getting an investigator and when I hear from them, that's when the process will really start moving along.  I may be waiting another 6 months....or less, hopefully! fingers crossed!

I pray for everything to work out smoothly & to get into the academy in January, 2014. 

Right now, I'm focusing on having a good recovery with my legs and continuing to exercise as much as I can within reason. Still laying off cardio majorly.

Thank God for backup systems. I was so bad with alarm clocks when I was working and I always ended up having to rush in the morning. Have a great day.

skinnygrlwithin on 05/14/2013:
Your green drink sounds yummy... I've gotten so used to the "juice" texture but I think I would like the more "smoothie" texture you get from yours.
