(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 138.0

total calories today: around 2400....happy with this.

exercise: 2.5 mi walk.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I did weigh one of these recent mornings to find this weight. I expected it and I'm not surprised. I'm thankful that i'm so knowledgable on weightlifting and that I have continued to use weights so that even though I weigh this much, I'm still a size 8 (sometimes 10 but usually not). And that's a decent size for my weight and height (5' 1.5"). If i didn't have a weight routine, and I weighed this much, I'd basically be a size 10, at least! The fat instead of muscle would mean more inches and bigger clothes! As you know, muscle weighs more than fat and takes up less space....

anyways,

early breakfast, 6am: 400 in fiber one, kix, and milk.

late, big and satisfying, healthy breakfast: two pieces tst with butter, 2 eggs, tasty green beans and almonds, glass of milk! i needed this!!! I haven't had a tasty and warm breakfast in quite awhile! it definitely hit the spot! 700 cal.

total cal so far: 1100 perfecto.

lots of errands today, visiting grandma, meeting up with my friend for mall, dinner, movie...a bit too much planned, not all will actually get accomplished, so i'll do what I can and give myself a break!  You wouldn't believe the list of things I need to catch up on.

for my own planning, i'm gonna list what I do actually want to do this morning before driving to grandma and picking up food for her lunch...

-to do today: bank and cleaners and pick up grandma's lunch, oil change. maybe tonight: thank-you cards to the students I had to drop from my private teaching :-( no time for them. maybe: contact former teachers/colleagues on facebook with note about looking for a band job. maybe today is a walk, probably not. at least i'll have some of that at the mall.

-to do tomorrow:  maybe cablevision and verizon, maybe nails, maybe bike store...see, i have too much to do!...laundry...too much! weights tomorrow for sure at the gym...and a walk definitely. 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

Em17 on 05/21/2011:

moogy on 05/18/2011:
I am sorry that your life is feeling so glum at the moment HOP. I hope that you can gain a different perspective on it or that you a unexpected break:)


hollybelle on 05/19/2011:
You can work things out HOP. For me, I left home at 19 and struggled through so many years, but eventually it got better-financially, that is. I had roommates for awhile. Not ideal, but I got better at pickng them :o) !! In this economy there are probably similar people out there who would like more options, too. The saying "strength in numbers" might apply to your desire to move out. For me the decision rested on the stress in moving out vs the stress of staying at parents house. Best wishes on working this out. Why not network a bit with others in same situation and see what can be worked out? One suggestion - if you do get roommate(s) I suggest planning the move in together and establishing "house rules" that everyone agrees on.
