around 2250 cals. more carbs purposely. feeling better with more carbs as of late.

exercise: half hour walk, 2 hours (with breaks) upper body weights routine, back, abs.

legs felt a little bad during the day, but then I actually full out forgot about any pain at the gym....and are pretty good now. this is good news.  it means it's a mental battle that I am winning at.  Looking forward to a wonderful summer. Beach days. and time off as well.

It's been a good week. I can attribute it to less overtime. Far less OT and much more sleep.

big dinner at home of extra white sticky rice (around 1.5 cups) and about 3-4 cups of sautéed veggies. no meat, purposely. very, very full but it should also help me fall asleep bc of the carbs.

around 2200. is ok.

exercise: 1/2 hour walk outside.

Today I let the stress overcome me.  I didn't work well at all at work.  Felt horrible since the point in the morning when my boss asked me to take a short 30 min lunch instead of one hour. So i ate for 15 min and walked for 15 min. and still people may not like that i went outside....well "F" them! I don't need to be punished more in my desk job! SORRY fellas, but i'm done with this crap!  I have a life too...and emotions...and a body that needs mental and physical stability. Maybe all these people that work short hours everyday should try my schedule. LOSERS. for people who look at me and say i don't do enough, maybe they should step in my shoes and do MY LONG HOURS - that I've done in the past. 12 and 13 hours days. Things they have never done at a desk job - same seat, all day. I really don't give a hoot what people think, they are not in my shoes, at my desk, at my job.

It bothers my legs just thinking about it.

With emotions high and unyielding, my legs were also in pain today.  I believe they are one of the same. It's very scary indeed. I feel tomorrow should be a much better day.

I just don't have any patience anymore for long days, everyday. I want normal days sometimes. I just can't take it - my patience will not last.

Calories thru nighttime: 1850, great.

exercise: 15 min walk at lunch, weights routine in a record short time. feels good to get it done fast during the week and i think on weekends, too.  I think it's better for me to bang them out more, then i have more free time to be with friends? or do all the other things that are important.

probably around 2200. but mostly balanced. higher in carbs because yesterday i went completely crazy with carbs so i need to come down off that high slowly today. still needing a carb boost in the AM.

exercise was a half hour or so walk at lunch.

legs sorta bothersome, but it's just a stress thing. not real physical pain. i'm done with that.

Good on the short walk...Hubby and I took a walk yesterday and it was good to get out and about the neighborhood.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/12/2015:
It's great to get out in the sunshine. And I work in a metropolitan city...it's SO NICE to get out and walk around because there's people out working, doing things, people driving places, the train above...so much action, makes for an excellent break outside of the office!!!! excellent. and GREAT for the mind & body!

Weight: 126.0

breakfast: fiber one 240 with almond milk 40. 280

 Later breakfast: small banana 120, Greek yogurt 150, peanut butter 150 700!

Off to do some important errands!

snacking in afternoon: 150

snacking at home 150-200, 50

1100 :)

natural food bar 220

1320.

probably around 2000-2100. good!

Around 10:30am this morning, I went to Staples Office Superstore in the morning to make color photocopies of important documents for getting reimbursed thru my union.  If it all works out right the first time, I will be getting $610 back in the next few weeks!

Overall, I had a very productive and successful day. saved a lot of money.  After Staples, I went to the mall.  My internet service has a store there and I changed my internet/tv service from a $129.51 plan down to the cheapest one available $84.29.  I will have less tv stations and slower cable (but doubt i'll be able to notice the change in speed).  I care more about saving money these days!  And i'm hardly home to watch so much tv.  Usually, I end up watching just the basic news channels anyway.

After that, I got a couple perfume samples at Sephora, free. As well as a couple samples of under-eye cream for puffiness. yay for that!

I then went to Victoria's Secret. You can return older bras without a receipt and get store credit. I returned the two that haven't washed well and always show under my clothing.  I got around $15 back for each, totally around $30. I then went to buy a new bra. I used the $30 store credit plus a $15 coupon off a bra. My bill came out to only $1.02!!!! Amazing Savings! and, I also had a coupon for a free panty!! So, one free underwear and a bra that was only $1.02! So cool.

Leaving the mall, I forgot to pay my parking ticket inside for $3. So I paid on the way out of the garage $6. Oh well, I did save a ton of money despite the $3 overcharge! Glad I went out to the mall.

Relaxing now, soon to get ready for dinner with friends.  Will probably stop by my parent's house to fill out some paperwork as well. lately I have a lot of paperwork to do.

Good Saturday to you!

I can feel I've lost at least 1/2 pound in real weight. Clothes are fitting a tad bit better. I need a couple lower cal days (even at 1700 I can lose) if I want to lose weight or tone up. Thing is, it's only early MARCH and I can really make a difference by the summer WITHOUT REALLY trying. This is the important part.  I need to live a "lean lifestyle" not a diet or short-term approach. So that's why I enjoy thinking long-term. therefore, i'm going to keep doing my cardio.  Keep thinking positive. and continue to live the life I enjoy most. Time to strut my stuff in my bikini this sumEximer again. and finally be able to walk free of pain in the sand. Excited for these things!

Tomorrow my plan is to do a few errands.  I want to go to Victoria's Secret and receive store credit for the two bras that haven't worn well.  And then either save the credit to buy something later or get one bra that day as a replacement with the store credit.  Also, I need to make photocopies of some important paperwork that I forgot to bring to work. I need the photocopies ASAP and unhooked my printer/copier. So I may just drive to staples to do it. Because it's quite a bit & easier to do there...then I need to drop that paperwork off....then I may take a rest day & see my friends in the evening. I hope I feel better Saturday than I do right now. I am quite exhausted.

Calories: not great, gonna have a snack I've been wanting the whole day. Probably around 2350 cal. it's ok...whatever.

Exercise: half hour walk.

Fiber One was not the best idea last night bc it messed up my digestion all day. Ok, good to think about for next time.

Calories before dinner: 1150

Dinner quinoa 100, chicken 200, sautéed veggies 250, drink 50 600 or so.

1750, perfect.
