Total cal 2250. Full upper body workout :)

Snacking: strawberries 50, pumpkin with cinnamon and stevia 50 egg whites 50

Total so far: 950 time to get to the gym!

Lately I am trying to stay off the computer while at home....wow so that makes my last entry Wednesday!? Must be the longest time without making an entry since my trip to Niagara Falls last September.

Thursday was very good and exercise was hardcore upper body and abs at lunch.

Friday calories were also good and exercise was legs / leg physical therapy. Saturday I am thinking about the calories - probably around 2000 - excellent. And Saturday exercise was abs. My legs were bothering me so I tried to stay off them and iced them at night. I will ice my legs at least once a day everyday this week (off from work but not going away so I should be able to fit it in my schedule!)

Happy Sunday! I called my parents to see if they wanted to get together for dinner but they will be out at a wedding today.

This week there are a few important things I will be taking care of and also I am going to plan actual days for relaxing. I will continue physical therapy of course and go to the gym. I need to have my car serviced, return a pair of shoes, send in my taxes, find a good sneaker store where they show u the best sneakers for your type of feet, to to dermatologist.

Most of the activities next week are simple but the dermatologist isn't as close a drive and the car servicing may not even be able to get done this week if they don't have the parts. I didn't call earlier about my car bc it was late last week when I realized I would have this week off. I planned to save it for summer like I did in the past but my boss said I couldn't do that and must take the days before end of March :)

600 cal breakfast, decaf med iced coffee, snack

12pm Early healthy large lunch back at home around 550

3pm snacking: cooked cabbage 50, large apple 150, almonds 150, almond milk with stevia and cinnamon 50. 400

1550 so far = good!

The orthopedic surgeon I saw was very good. He gave me a lot of great feedback. He said I do have compartment syndrome. He said no to surgery. Instead, he insisted I need to stretch out my calves every day and strengthen the anterior muscles in my shins. He said it could take 6 months to heal and that I will never be able to run for my choice exercise bc my body isn't built for it. He did say he thought it was possible to recover for the academy and that I could be able to do it - though might be difficult for me. If all works out and I can heal for January, I plan to do the academy and afterward just walk / elliptical for exercise. Doctor said I should do physically therapy and stretching and take it very seriously.

Around 1950-2000. Good!

Exercise physical therapy.

Around 2300 probably. A bit high but really tasty food and nice, sticky white Thai rice. A good change of pace and allowed myself to fully indulge in dinner. Calories may even be closer to 2300-2400 but probably not. It's hard to estimate when sauces are involved. Exercise was abs and....some walking at the mall! Surprisingly my legs held up better than expected. :). They have been feeling better these past few days so I told me friend I would be able to go to the mall especially since Monday I am going to the dr about the legs.

Friday was ok. At work I was just in a bad mood all day particularly bc my right wrist was bothering me from all the computer work. My plan is to stay away from it all weekend. I love the computer but cannot afford for my wrist to get much worse. Will be buying a better ergonomic mouse bc right now it's the right wrist particularly from using the mouse.

Calories were around 1850-1900. I was very overtired today.

Wednesday: 1900 cal or so.  Healthy.  exercise was legs at gym near work & also physical therapy.  no cardio. 

I was able to make an appointment with a specialist orthopedic surgeon at NYU Medical Center in NYC for Monday!  I will see him, show him my past MRI results & I also hope to get the test / set up an appointment for the compression test for Chronic Compartment Syndrome.  I am excited about this appointment and also I know that if or if I don't have Compartment Syndrome, I will continue to be positive and persevere to get better.

Thursday: abs at lunch and weights in the evening (hoping not to get out of work too late...) 

 Breakfast & Snacks & Coffee: healthy and low calories... about 550.

Lunch: light! small wrap (on the very, very light side around 200 cal) and chips around 200 cal. 400 total

Total so far: 950....will try to keep it low & go to the gym for full upper body weights (didn't sleep well, but will still try to have a great workout tonight!!!) I did about 15-20 min abs at lunch :-D

 Thursday's calories were around 1700. EXCELLENT. but, major caffeine overdose before gym and i wasn't feeling well, at all, and shouldn't try any more new energy drinks! haha
