lately feeling really low on sugar...so ended up having a bit extra this morning including a big granola bar after the peanut butter on a wrap after my breakfast! so, 850 in the morning, before my snack at work.

around 1050 before lunch, fine, hopefully out of here by 4:30pm and on my way home.  Taking a break from the gym tonight also.

2550

Oh and I was asked to work an hour more - even though I was sick.

So I worked 8-6. Aszholez

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Hi! It's been so long! How has everything been?

Have you ever tried taking a vitamin b complex and iron together? I don't know if that would help with the sugar craving/low energy feeling.

Hope you are having a good day!

NO phyiscal therapy, not worth staying out late for it.

Good morning :) feeling a lil bit under the weather today. Had breakfast around 6am and just relaxing a bit. My plan is to do all laundry tomorrow since the machines are probably packed now....but I can see myself changing my mind!

During last week, I would say I deducted around 1000 calories or 1/3 of a pound. If I can keep this up each week, I can lose a few pounds by summer.

550 breakfast, 150 snack, 50 coffee, 150 cabbage, eggs 160, chips 150, wrap 100. 1300 so far.

Prob around 2200. Good!!

Good Morning & Happy Sunday!

6am Breakfast: (was gonna make eggs but realized I wanted cereal - I only usually have it on weekends) - almost two cups of low calorie cereals and almond milk: 310 or so. 

8:30am Snack: Promax low sugar peanut butter cookie dough protein bar. 240...wanting a decaf iced coffee....I've noticed this coffee drinking is finally affecting my pearly whites a lil bit lol...it may be time to quit the habit and drink only tea at work...instead of sipping coffee all morning....we'll see....

9am snack: decaf coffee 100

10am-11am shake, around 250

1-2pm BIG LUNCH, tasty, mostly cooked teriyaki veggies, but also 1/4 lb lox on a wrap. 750. also a drink.

1650, perfect.

Total around 2150 - excellent and bc if a long upper body workout, I know I probably burned more than that today!!

yes, left leg burns, so sitting home rest of afternoon.  AM was a big upper body weights routine, I have actually gotten stronger, almost doing 3 reps in my right arm of 25 lb weights. left arm still at 20lbs.

back to the legs, either something magical happens or it doesn't.  I go back to the doctor on the 14th and it cannot come quickly enough. that's 3 weeks from now.  I have completed 5 full weeks of physical therapy. Very difficult to keep up with after work 3x per week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Now, I just have to get the NYU (New York University) Medical Center orthopedic surgeon to allow me to take the pressure test - to see if I actually have diagnosed compartment syndrome.  (He DID diagnose it on my chart, but no pressure test with the needles). 

If the pressure test confirms chronic compartment syndrome, I am pretty sure surgery becomes an option.  If the test is negative, it will emphasize the need for me to take physical therapy even more seriously since surgery will not be an option. 

Unfortunately, the doctor wasn't promoting me going for the test at my last visit.  So I have been restlessly waiting, still waiting, for these two months to go by so I can have the test.  (in the back of my head, I feel it's exactly what I have....but I can be wrong, of course).

 

 

 

(left leg is still aggravated as I felt it as soon as I woke up - but not severe at all, right leg is better but not totally pain-free and still feels it time to time)
