Sorry your legs are giving you trouble. Take it easy on them. Good plan on post below - weights and other types of exercise. With me - my feet are the issue I have when do too much walking! Hang in there!

legs hurt a bit, so not doing any exercise tonight. too tired.

calories are a bit high - ate some pizza roll thing that the boss brought in. it was good, worth it.

2250. no exercise. legs are in too much pain. good overall.

7:30am bigger breakfast: 2 cups cereal 280 with some blackberries 40, almond milk 30, tablespoon pb 100 on small slice bread 40 with jelly 30 = 520, good.

11:30am smallish shake at gym 180

lunch: lots of cooked veggies (teriyaki style & over a pound including nice juice broccoli) 200?, two small whole grain rolls 240, with a little spread 30, 1 egg 1 egg white 100. 570...

1270 so far....ok, plus 600 cal in dessert. lunch was obviously slightly unhealthy (1170 calories)

1870. decent.

snack 40 minutes or so before gym (unhealthy) - iced decaf coffee with lots of milk 80

1950.

dinner: carrot salad 50, strawberries 50...and probably a chicken taco. 200

2050

2250 is a success.

exercise: abs workout in AM (with 3 leg exercises) and upper body workout minus the pushups in PM. my legs hurt & I don't need to put that extra pushup stress on them - yes, pushups will bother my legs if they are already hurting.

weird sleeping last night & pretty much up from 4am-9am. but, I got laundry done & didn't screw calories by much at all. a late lunch, but also decent calories. total so far, 3pm, is 1450 cal. pretty darn good I would say, considering my past!...glad I can go out to dinner with my folks & have a good time (and not have to worry about not saving enough calories!)

celebrating mom's 60th tonight!

exercise: lots of walking (like at least 1.5 hours) but.....my legs didn't hurt badly just minor & a lot of it was done on a soft track at the nearby college (20 min walk away) :-D

ended up being too much walking & my legs were hurting badly last night...I have learned that I cannot walk much, anymore, more than the minimum, until I am MUCH MORE HEALED. so, for now on, it's gonna be just walking at lunch...and on weekends, just errands....I will just have to delve more into weights (and included routines for every other day - upper body vs. abs/lower - so that i'm in the gym most days & burning some calories doing that.) cardio is out.

2400 cal, decent, considering it was a bday celebrating with a lil pie at the end! :-D

Good Morning :-D Happy Friday. Got to bed a lil late last night, but enjoyed reading a romance novel that I took out of the library. It is one of the better ones that I have read...and incorporates a lot of underlying stories into it. I can't wait to read more tonight!

Breakfast: lots of cooked cranberries - around 50 cal, flax around 50, in greek 2% yogurt 150, tablespoon peanut butter 100: 350 tasty ones! and tea with stevia.

snack: bar??

snack: bar??

lunch: lil bit of salmon with roasted peppers and broccoli rabb (veggies were all bought at Key Food, a small chain supermarket...) maybe a small bagel, maybe an apple.

around 1950, excellent!

workout: upper body weights, excellent workout!

Happy Friday, Hoppy.


Umpqua on 11/15/2013:
Your lunch sounds super yummy, enjoy!


liza36 on 11/15/2013:
Love the cranberry season, I had not thought of having them for breakfast though. Sounds good.


legcramps on 11/15/2013:
Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend with that romance novel; I started a new book last night too but mine is pretty morbid and dark. It still sucked me in!

Calories thru 5:30pm end of the workday: 1350....good...planning on stopping by the gym before heading home, for a quick bout of core work & 4 leg exercises.  (if i remembered my gym clothes, which i believe i did!)....

2050 healthy calories :-D

exercise: like 20 min at lunch. then, good legs and abs routine... :-D  this is new for me & I like it. (splitting up upper body workouts and having separate days for abs/legs)....I may keep this!

plus, on weekends, if not busy, I can get to the gym 2x :-D with the new approach of breaking up workouts. PLUS, I am not in the gym as long & have time at home to relax after....MUCH BETTER!!!!

Weight: 127.0

Breakfast: pb on bread with a lil pumpkin spread & yogurt 200. and yogurt with pb and cooked cranberries 240: 440, good.

total cal: 1850 or so. :-) that's great...and fruit at 2:30am...gosh....so around 1950.

exercise: upper body weights (and tomorrow will be abs/little bit of legs).  doing this was good, because I had physical therapy first & was still able to go to the gym - but for an hour rather than a crazy amount....I may start to do this more :-D (splitting up workout routines)...

my current weight is correct. (it may even be lower by a couple pounds - since I was weighed partially clothed & at the end of the day).

for the past 2 weeks, I've been having interrupted sleep, waking up hungry or just with an appetite, not sleeping through the night.

OhioRaven on 11/13/2013:
Hey, I'm putting PB and whole cranberrys in my yogurt too.


OhioRaven on 11/14/2013:
I've been pouring a handful, raw, cranberrys from a bag, into my yogurt cup. I'm going to YouTube right now to see about cooking them.


liza36 on 11/14/2013:
For hunger during the night, have you tried eating right before going to sleep, like 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, some yogurt, something like that? It may help so you don't wake up. That can be so annoying!
