Felt horrible all day. Got my period early which I am overjoyed about since I won't have it on my vacation and trip!!!!!!! Yay!

Calories are higher and that's fine!

Around 2200.

Almost skipped the gym but instead had a great workout. :)

No cardio today.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

KTbabyweight on 07/09/2014:

Probably around 2250. perfect.

exercise was a full upper body (no abs) and back.

also, WALKING at beach (on the hard sand by the water) for around 45 minutes I think (forgot to time it), no pain in right leg at all. Left leg still minor pain that is a heck of a pain to get rid of, but so much better.

things are looking good for me lately with the legs. so happy about this!

(successful weekend, calorie-wise!) nice.  now, I am going to do well this last week, before my vacation!  I have a week off from work starting on the 14th! and I come back Tuesday, the 22nd!  I will be staying home.  I have a big concert planned (Bruno Mars in NYC at Madison Sq Garden) and the beach, of course. Also, I have a friend's baby's 1st bday to attend & will visit at least a couple different beaches during the week. I'll be continuing physical therapy & plan to incorporate strong workouts at the gym. Last time I had a week off was January, 6 months ago.  Really looking forward to it!

Glad to hear things are looking up leg-wise! What a great workout, walking in the sand. I hope this week goes fast for you!

Change of plans today, no beach but going to a BBQ in the evening.  instead, i'll go to the gym & do some extra ab exercises that I forgot yesterday and also most of my leg exercises that I would do at PT. I don't mind relaxing all day & I plan to tan on my terrace in the afternoon when the sun is fully shining on it.

Today I am doing laundry, will catch up a couple bills, and just relax.  There's no need to rush around all the time and I am thankful for a slow day.  As much as I wanted to go to the beach 2 days in a row, it's better I let my body fully relax and rejuvenate a bit with the slow pace here at home.  Yes, I am serious!  It's been a long time since the days I was a student & teacher, with ample days off.  So really, in all honesty, I fully welcome this slow, relaxing, 3-day weekend!  If I want to, I can work on my terrace today, also.  I need to remove some pigeon spikes that weren't helpful.  The were applied with crazy glue, so I will have to see if the product I bought from Home Depot does the trick!

Breakfast: 400 tasty ones.

Snack: around 120 I think.

snack #2: big portion of cinnamon weight control Quaker oatmeal (all the flavors in the weight control box are sooooooo good!) cooked with a 1/2 cup of egg whites which just makes the oatmeal bigger! awesome, and one container of Fage fat free greek yogurt with 2 packets of stevia. total here is 310, very filling and awesome.

around 850, excellent.

around 2250-2300. excellent.

exercise was a little abs and most of my leg pt exercises done at the gym.

Oh Happy Friday! Happy 4th of July!

Been a good day. Letting myself indulge a little & feeling good about it :)

Breakfast: 450.

Snacking: Dunkin Donuts iced coffee 100, protein shake 300.

850, good!

big, but healthy lunch: cucumber salad around 50, seaweed salad around 100, bok choy and lettuce 50; low sodium chicken on a pita 200, indulged in 2 servings of cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits 250. total here: 650, very good. satisfying, too. I've been reading about how competitive eaters train, by expanding their stomachs 1-2 weeks especially before competitions, boy does this make sense! lol. I ate so much, I am very full, but almost feel good about it.

1500 so far, excellent.

....fell asleep after lunch, planned to nap and could hardly wake up from my alarm clock.  I slept around 25 minutes :)

snack after nap: big plum and iced tea. around 50.

1550, perfecto so far!

total around 2250 = perfect.

Breakfast: 100....I plan to do work at work today...yesterday was a real wash. my boss didn't give me any work to do...strange.

1150 cal and out early to celebrate the 4th :) At most 1750 :) Some walking carrying heavy packages while shopping. I would say I burned 2050 today. So, 300 cal deduct is a success! around 1100 cal down so far this week. Gonna aim high for success tomorrow with weightloss and Sunday. Saturday is a BBQ but also beach so I will work on it :)

1100 down...wow, that's about 1/3 of a pound! go me! :)

all I have to do is be consistent and I do so well.  will be working for no gains this weekend, and, if possible, a further calorie deduct / loss.
