Happy Sunday!! I thank God today is a new day. Yesterday got very out of hand eating-wise. I was home most of the day and I found it hard to stay on track. It's harder for me than normal now that I can't be out of the house all day bc of my legs (they always need to be rested. Please God heal me. Breakfast: fruit, including a medium banana, and lemon / lime in hot water: 200 2nd breakfast: made a good protein pancake with 1/8 cup oat bran 60 , 1 egg and 1/4 cup egg whites 100, cashews 50, Apple butter 50, 260 and had it with Greek yogurt 150 and almond milk 50 460 :) oh...and peanut butter 150 810.

11:30 lunch: chips and popcorn 150, two white flour wraps 200 with tuna 100: 450, tasty.

around 1250. I really need my legs to get fully better. I do not like being home :( and eating and bored. I want to be able to be outdoors all day like I used to be :(

today was much, much better food-wise. it was healthy.

2200 cal. I did great.

exercise: NONE. I will be reporting NO EXERCISE for the next 2 weeks.  I have GOT to let my legs heal, fully.  It may take months still. but I have to get the pain to be obsolete, not lingering.

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

Sleeping habits are very important. I also do not sleep in whether I go to bet early or late. Then I will have a day like a few days ago where I slept a 11 hrs straight. Have a great day.


shams on 10/11/2014:
Any lemon water or lemon juice drink I think is a plus. Have a good day.

Early breakfast: banana, a Meyer lemon, regular lemon juice in hot water and vitamins 200

Legs have been giving me a different kind of pain - more when I wake up in the morning like pins and needles....could it be that the ice baths have helped my body start to heal? I hope so but really have no idea.

Around 600-800 cals over this week. Total cal today around 1700 perfecto!

Exercise: no extra anything. Just a few errands after work and made it to accupuncture after which is great. Trying to heal my legs mostly with ice either ice massage or ice bath.

Around 600 extra cal this week.

Lemon Juice is good, i Kind of like don't know why.


OhioRaven on 10/10/2014:
Pins and Needles sounds like a pinched nerve or the way my CarpulTunnel used to feel. Hope they get better :v)


puddles on 10/10/2014:
Sure hope you get some relief from your leg pain soon. It must be exhausting for you to be in pain all the times. Have a great day.

I think the ice baths are helping but not sure. Websites say it could take 4 days which is about how much I have done. Ice isn't so expensive so I am going to keep doing it for awhile. Good thing I don't pay a water bill!! Luckily that is included.

Calories were 2000. Very good. No extra cardio but a very fast and concise weights and abs routine and finally home at 9pm. I did a 10 min ice bath, showering first and just kneeling on a towel in the tub for my shins - keeping the rest if me dry. Works out pretty well.

Goodnight - long day worked over an hour OT.

Hey all :)

It was a good day. Legs still inflamed but I decided to go to the gym after work for weights! Glad I did because I felt soooo much better after. Gonna be buying ice every night to use for ice baths. I do not like reusing it from the fridge. I also do not have a nice maker. Anyways, it's only $2 for a big bag.

Calories were around 2150. Exercise today was weights.

I iced my legs at lunch.

Good luck with the ice. Have a great evening.

Breakfast: at home - small banana 120, I Meyer lemon 20, 1 regular lemon in hot water 30. Total 170. 2nd breakfast: will be lox on a wrap 250.

it's about 2 cups of lemon water. and I do eat the lemon....it then makes you poop! yep, as long as I have time to relax - around a half hour after drinking & eating the lemon(s). it's helped me so much now that I know what I'm doing with it....and I had a full banana as well first thing in the AM.

I also had a chocolate bar right before work.

body was once again begging for carbs and fat?!

total cals before ride home: 1550

total cals after apple: 1650

BIG dinner: one large meatball with sauce in a wrap - at least 350 if not more...first I had a lot of salad 150 at least with toppings (all healthy). so 500...but then I had some dessert: some chips and strawberries 200. 700, a bit high again.

NO WORKING OUT TODAY. 2nd day of shin soaking in ice water...which doesn't seem to be turning out very well since today I was in so much pain.

total cals: 2350, not the worst. sometimes your body just wants it. pretty decent considering. I did have more fat today than usual, and my body is probably thanking me for it!

Day one of Ice Dipping.  I will try anything.

http://www.tendonitisexpert.com/shin-splints-treatment.html

 

Big breakfast (actually too big but loved eating it) and finally made a good protein pancake. I used the larger sized cooking pan.  I would say the pancake measured around 8 x 8 or something like that and it was pretty thick too!  Tasted great. 500 approx.

Pancake was made like this: spray 20?, I blended egg whites 120, oat bran 60, a banana 140, pumpkin butter 20, and cinnamon: 360...and added blueberries 50 once it was in the pot...later adding some microwaved (and it worked well!) strawberries (turned into strawberry preserves and the strawberries were ripe so it tasted great, no extra sugar needed at all!) 50 and some extra pumpkin butter spread 50: 500 total. a bit higher on carbs but on purpose...I want to have a strong gym workout...this should def work.

Bad snack of carby wrap 100 and then coconut water...later a protein shake heavier than normal total 500 1000 so far before lunch a bit high

lunch: 600 at most

1600, ok!

slight binge but maybe I needed it - yeah right! anyways, the binge was mostly on nut butter and cashews. (3 servings). eating was mostly healthy today, but shin splints are really, really annoying.

2300 cal before binge...followed by around 350 extra cals of nuts.

2650. fine.

exercise: weights.

Today is the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur.  It is really not a happy day, until the meal LOL at the end of the day.  It's a day of fasting (since sun down last night) although I will not be fasting. If you do go to temple, it's probably the holiest day of the year.

On Yom Kippur, most people will say "I hope you have an easy fast" because it's not really fun or a happy day, like I said.  It's a day that we go to temple (if we do, I am not a member of one and most of the time you have to be a member to go on these holy days).  At temple or wherever we pray, it's for god to reprieve us or forgive us of our sins.  By fasting, going to temple, and praying to god on this day, we pray to god to forgive us of any sins we committed in this year - since last Yom Kippur.

I am not very religious at all and am just thankful for it being Saturday. I believe in god and hope that i'll be forgiven of my sins despite not fasting.  Fasting is not to be followed by children, elderly, the sick, pregnant, or people with any other similar deficiency.  I do not fast because I don't feel it necessary in that I have a tendency to binge.

Breakfast: sautéed brussel sprouts 200 (yes a ton), and a big protein pancake: 1/8 cup of oat bran 60, 1 banana 120, egg whites 120, and some spray 20 320, oh, and some extra apple butter 50: 570-600. good. a bit high, but I am not gonna be fasting today on my day off or in general.  I have had an eating disorder throughout my life (mainly it being obsessive not anorexia or bulimia) so I do not really like to fast on this day (Yom Kippor).  Fasting has a tendancy of bringing on binging problems for me.

Snack: yogurt 100

Big lunch of veggies: rest of the brussel sprouts 100 at most, sautéed veggies around 100, left over slaw 50, tons of kale and cabbage salads with dried fruit in it 350 at most: 600 at bit too much LOL on veggies!!! and an apple 50. 650.

1350, too much LOL since it's all veggies I don't feel very satisfied...

(spending time at home relaxing and eating and relaxing more for the rest of the day until later when I go to "break the fast" with family & friends tonight)

We all have our own way of dealing with stuff. Wishing you a great day.


museumgirl on 10/04/2014:
Fasting is a way of control, but if it makes you lose control, its not a good thing for you. You are very smart to listen to your body. and I LOVE brussel sprouts I could eat a bushel of them!


OhioRaven on 10/04/2014:
Wow, your power protein pancakes sound really good.
