Excellent day HOP. I hope you have another one tomorrow. You seem to be stringing quite a few of these wonderful days together. Maybe you have found what works for you. I think that is great, I am so happy for you:)

lately i've been eating so much sugar, it's not funny how much i consume. drinks in the morning that are sugary, sugary greek yogurts, many bars in the mornings at work, a sugary kombucha drink after work...got to cut down...it's making me feel extra hungry, have more cravings, and plain exhausted.  soon, will work on this soon...

breakfast: 2 yogurts (one with sugary fruit bottom, one plain) 210, oatmeal w. water 100: 310. nice!


exercise: 10 min in the AM, 20 min walking to/from work (that's 30 min already, in addition to weights at night and maybe a few minutes cardio on the ellipitical.)

i hope you all are well!

You CAN do it!

Umpqua on 04/06/2011:
Can you try the plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and maybe cinnamon? Once you get used to the taste it's super yummy. Have a good one!

loveray on 04/06/2011:

Yes, sugar makes you hungry, funny that, but it switches on the hormones to make you eat more. Bad stuff!!

back to weighing around 130.5 wahoo. weird thing is, my clothes are tighter...i guess i'm bloated? but wouldn't i weigh more then? so weird. these past couple of days i have tight clothes, but i'm not weighing a higher amount...

calories are high, i could have changed it, but i overate a little bc i just love the dried trader joe's snack packs of seaweed! weird, i know! 

2350 calories.

exercise: hour of walking, and also a little walking in the AM/PM to and from work. and a little walk at lunch - like 10-15 min.

total walking, just to think about it for a sec.: hour 35 min. eh.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

loveray on 04/04/2011:
hmm - is your cycle near? that always does it for me. or, perhaps you have built more muscle with all of your lifting and exercise? good work and hope that you feel less bloated soon. lots of H2O!

Umpqua on 04/04/2011:
That's good news. Could be bloating or muscle, just keep drinking water and I bet you'll see the scale keep moving!

legcramps on 04/04/2011:
I figure it's probably from all the weight workouts; your body is probably just changing shape a little bit. Have you kept track of inches lost? That might be a better indicator of how you're doing right now.

~Moody~ on 04/04/2011:
All the ladies have excellent suggestions as to why your clothes may feel a bit tighter. You're doing SO amazing...Don't get discouraged, keep doing what you're doing, the bloat will go away.

Hope you have a great night!

moogy on 04/04/2011:
I am so glad to come back and find you in such a good mood. You got some good walking in today. Good for you HOP:)

V on 04/04/2011:
Maybe it is your muscles expanding... Conrats on the loss!! You are killing it!!

KathyBlue on 04/05/2011:
nice walking, nice loss... :D maybe it's the new washing machine! :D

Well done on all the walking ...awesome :-)

OHHH, 129 lbs....I'm coming, get ready!!!!! I've almost got you....I'm gonna catch you, babe!!!! :-D  we are getting there.......getting there.....

My crazy breakfast and early snack (snack 80 calories energy drink), 2 packs seaweed snacks 120, greek yogurts 200, oatmeal w. milk 150: 550. tasty!!!  especially those greek yogurts!!!! Fage was on sale and they have such tasty, carribbean-style flavors! check it out! strawberry-gogi.  blueberry acai, and others!  I had a plain and a strawberry acai, 200 total for both together! mmmmmhh.

off to take a walk, teach lessons, go to the gym, talk to a friend, go to bed EARLY. I went to bed early last night and i feel soooo gooood today.

(oh...so yesterday i thought i wouldn't be paid much - but i got paid $136 for my time....BUT, since i have to join an organization to be paid, I have to pay $120 of that back!!! haha. so, I made $16....but like i said, i was happy to be doing what I love yesterday - listening to kids play good music!!!) It was wonderful.  If I do it more often, it would be a bit more worth it...but I did it for my love of music, not the money, of course!

at the moment, i'm weighing around 131. of course i will not be changing 130 back to 131....but i have still a bit of a way to go to get to 129 without DRASTIC measures. I am totally not inclined to do anything drastic right now!

breakfast: weird again. seaweed snack 60, soy chips140, milk 150 (and a snack earlier during a 15 min walk - 50 cal) total: 400 GOOD.

update: haha, finally had a loadfull of veggies for dinner. so good. and shrimp. from a good chinese restaurant. ate the entire takeout quart. so good! so hungry.

calories: around 2300?

exercise: 45 min cardio, but just cardio throughout the day. no gym.

there are some days and my body craves that darn massage so badly!! but i can't unless i weigh my required 129.  the massage is a GIFT for my success and not lack of. i won't cave, but darn, i really want it!  I've scheduled it for the 14th....i should definitely be 129 by then!? gonna try harder..

4 pounds. ok, i'll stop now.

long successful day, girlies!

calories around 2200-2500.  very fine. i don't feel i'm losing weight, but i don't really feel i'm gaining. i do feel good lately.

exercise: 1 hr and 45 min weights. cardio throughout the day (some in AM some in PM), around 45 min total worth of cardio.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

loveray on 03/31/2011:
yipee most important that you feel good. your exercise always sounds so awesome these days. are you still doing hot or regular yoga? i remember the days when you went often. i also remember a beautiful photo of you in dancer pose, i think that you posted one day! miss you.

belly on 03/31/2011:
Holy cow, good workout! Weight training is the hardest thing for me to force myself to do, and you did a very impressive amount! Nice!

Horn_Of_Plenty - Wednesday Mar 30, 2011
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 130.0

exercise: around 3.5 mi.

i now walk 10 min back and 10 min forth to work everyday from where I park my car ... 20 min is like a mile...so that's good. after that, i walked around 3 mi more at the park. it's good to get in a little exercise earlier in the day so i don't have so much to do later...and i can get home at a more decent time!

calories are still high: 2250-2300. right now, i can't seem to eat less. i'm up many hours and i get really hungry. thing is, i'm not gaining weight, so it's ok. i think i may still be losing weight. my black jeans were looser today when i got home, i noticed this in the leg area, of all places! nice.

i really can't concentrate on keeping calories low right now, i'm just trying hard to keep them in this range. and it's working - which is why i haven't really changed my plan thus far!

i was feeling bloated Mon/tues. and i still do, but my weight is still in the 131-132 area. nice.

Umpqua on 03/30/2011:
Good deal and I think the loose jeans are a great sign that you're going in the right direction. Have a good night!

legcramps on 03/31/2011:
I think you're doing great, and if those amounts of calories are working for you, why change it up? Maybe your metabolism is much higher than most; maybe you're constantly moving and burning calories during the day. Who cares? Whatever it is, it's working, rigth? I didn't spell "right" correctly, but whatevs. I'm too lazy to fix it.

Keep it up!!!!
