(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 127.0

oatmeal and 2 greek yogurts 400.

1900 total cals, and really healthy for the majority! nice day.

exercise: little bit of weights and 45 min cardio.

up in middle of night - hungry again - 2250 total cal today - good. 2450. gonna count it as 2250, add the other 200 to today's total....makes more sense that way.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

anyways, the other day, i did someone a favor which helped them out, should make them feel pretty special...and my efforts went without a simple thank you. it wasn't much effort on my part, but a simple favor which helped them look good in others' eyes.  it does upset me that i didn't get a thank you. i almost want to say something, like "didn't it feel good to hear those things people said about you?!"...but i'm gonna refrain. if they aren't able to say thanks, so be it. 

 

breakfast: 360. oatmeal w. milk, yogurt, cranberry side dish i made.

1600 healthy - definitely mostly healthy! - calories today. a great day!

1800 total cal after snack at 3am...didn't have a filling dinner i guess!

exercise: hour weights, 20 min cardio - no time left that i wanted to spend doing more cardio...that's tomorrow's plan, cardio!

goodnight.

I agree. A simple thanks goes a long way. I hope you feel better :)


Umpqua on 10/27/2011:
Simple manners really do go a long way. I hope you have a good one!


~WI~ on 10/27/2011:
Looks like you are doing great on the food/exercise front! Good job! Some people don't have many manners :/

i am annoyed by people acting childishly right now.  cannot go into detail further, but seriously annoyed.

 

breakfast: 450. fruit, yogurts (2), oatmeal.

snack at work in AM: almonds. 200 (also a candy factored in)

lunch: some of the boss' steamed broccoli rabe w/ garlic!, my own veggies w/ tofu, chips 150 small bag, some snack that someone brought in...big lunch around 600 cal., a candy later on 650 total.

dinner: rest of that veggie thing i brought for lunch (calories included in with lunch), a huge apple 100, eggwhite sandwich, small, 200.

eating, a little much, at 8pm after the gym: tons of veggies that i had cooked (like 4 cups at least!!!!) i just said, 4 cups at least. some stir fry sauce, but not much. a large peach. and also i had some of the leftovers that i found in the fridge....grr! haha, italian - fried eggplant and shrimp w. a tiny bite of cheese. this upped my cals, as you can imagine. but overall, i did great!

1850-1900 healthy calories! mostly, anyway!

exercise: 45 min of good cardio!

gah, splurged again.

2200, maybe 2300 cal today. still OKAY!

 7 day calorie average: would have never thought this low, what a surprise lol, 2220 approx for 7 days = excellent, actually. i thought it was gonna be higher and this is sorta my maintenance, a little high, but not enough for weight gain. i'm still on the road to success, ladies!

Dang, how we love food. Stupid thing occupies our minds constantly. But come on, try to find better things in life. I am OK now, recently changed visual, receiving compliments and feeling overall great and in peace with the world. What should I say, try to change something radically in your life. TRYING itself gives you a boost. For example I know you dislike working that much. Then refresh your CV and answer to some job proposals! It will give you a feeling of accomplishment beyond food. Or do as I do, go and get a haircut, buy a new piece of RADICAL clothing or something that would call attention and make people compliment you. Hearing you look amazing will fill your soul up and your stomach won't find a way to compensate for stress! :)

Congrats on 127 :)

grrr, weight was around 130 today. so annoying - but it means that in order to lose weight i will have to watch myself a little more, indulge a little less still. but really, i also think sleep has a lot to do with this equation - and i am gonna get a lot of it tonight - i will be in bed probably before 8pm...yeah, i'm that exhausted still from last week.

3pm fruit 100

4:00pm: really, really cool drink 110.

5pm bar: 130

8pm dinner: chips 150, lots of stir fry veggies 150?, 2 yogurts 200, fruit 60: 560 :-)

ahhh, darn! no change in weight. that's alright though!

woke up in the middle of the night a few times to pee and didn't really get to sleep as early as i should have even though i said i would because i wanted to read my book. man, the hours really do go by fast after work.

definitely exhausted and could sleep for hours more...but off to work we go!

breakfast: plum 50, oatmeal w. milk, yogurt: 350.

snacking: few peppermint sucking candies, few almonds.

lunch: chips 100, small egg white sandwich 250, fiber bar 150: 500.

early dinner: same sandwich as my lunch sandwich, 2 sorta big plums 100, big apple 150, red pepper 50: 550

after the gym: chips around 200, some of the leftover chinese i found at home - some nicely cooked shrimp and a little, very little bit of noodles 200 or so?, butternut squash soufflee the whole thing 300.700.

2250 or so calories today bc i splurged after the gym. fine with me.

Weight: 128.0

woke up in middle of the night and had a banana - was hungry! so more like 1900. good.

around 1760. perfect.

no cardio :-( (oh well, can't do it all if i work 2 hrs overtime).

1.5 hours weights.

i am promising myself i will eat nothing else - just had a sorta large protein bar after exercise, which is already accounted for in my calories - i am excited to weigh myself tomorrow - i should be around 128....maybe less in the AM! gonna go to bed EARLY now!!

Looking at my weight chart, i'm reminded that i'm doing well!  I need to keep up the good work, that's all! I am happy with this progress, even if slow. Slow is always better, so i've learned in my journey of life.

I want that weight chart to keep going down each month - and I know it's possible.  I'd like to first and foremost weight in the low/mid 120's which is so possible for someone of my height. Healthy weight for me is actually in the teens. like 115. but that is one heck of a lofty goal right now and i'm not even interested of thinking about it.

Right now, getting to around 124 will be a major success in itself!

400 cal breakfast. 2 icelandic yogurts, wheat cereal w. milk. yup - all that!

only 50 calorie snack. - candies.

late lunch 500 cal. egg white sandwich, chips, fiber bar. many carbs, yes. but not too much.

dinner: 1/2 turkey sandwich, a lot of meat in the sandwich, chips 100 cal, tomato/fruit 100? :400.

big snack after gym bc i wanted it: 2 yogurts, huge yellow pepper, huge apple, small plum: 400 total.

total: 1750-1800. good. i don't like to stay too low bc it backfires anyway, so this total is probably perfect even if it sounds high, i don't believe it really is.

and lots of gum, finished the pack finally, so still i think around 1800. good.

splurge on carrot chips! 260 more, but yum.

2050 today. still good!

exercise: hour of cardio.

gonna get up at a more normal hour tomorrow, around 5:45 lol, instead of 4:45! anyways, and make sure i have a nice breakfast like i've been doing!
