Weight: 121.5

breakfast: avocado 80, fiber one and almond milk 240: 320.

i don't know what my problem is, but everything is upsetting me 100-fold lately. i have a chinese immigrant coworker, well, a U.S. citizen for many years now, who is definitely still being abusely treated in the workplace in my opinion. and NO, there's nothing i can do as I work there also... but, he's dreadfully sick as a dog, fever, broken out slightly but i see it all over his forehead with either the flu or bronchitis coughing and miserably sick....and my boss didn't let him go him early one day this week...damn shame there are people in this world who have so little compassion. SO LITTLE COMPASSION.

it is difficult for me to believe that i am going to survive this job for another year. i must ask for the half hour extra lunch on Monday so that I can walk. i am a little upset that i have to ask and know that my chinese coworker will never be able to leave the building during lunch...when i leave, when i get into the academy, i may say something, i am not sure. my boss is silently killing this chinese man. he is not healthy....and there is no break for him.  he will die earlier because of this. it is simply  not fair. he is sick because he is overworked. and it is very, very upsetting.

as for myself, my body is constantly tired and sore. my commute ranges, but it can be around an hour each way. this week i worked 7:30-5:30 all week and last week some days. and that is too much sitting. and very, very unhealthy.

calories: around 2250.

exercise: 4 mi on treadmill some jogging and some walking. i got home around 8:45pm.

Progress as of today: 3.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

Weight: 121.5

still getting depressed at work, i think the hour lunch will help...soon i will ask, probably tomorrow.

2050 cal = perfect.

pretty healthy, but still 3 protein bars and a shake. but also the correct amount of fruits/veggies!

exercise: enough uppper body weights (getting used to the new gym!) and a nice hour elliptical :-)

my weight is right around what's posted, closer to the 122/122.5 range though. :-) I am doing well overall with managing. just need to break out of this depression...I am just nervous it's gonna be a long road till the NYPD and this year. like i said though, the hour lunch/movement at lunch should help...

supercheese on 01/10/2013:
it might take time but im sure you can get there! a year isnt so long if you think about it! and lord knows your fit enough to be a cop :)


sailingeagle on 01/10/2013:
Hang in there Horn, you're gonna make it! I'm sending up prayers for you! :)


legcramps on 01/11/2013:
You can do this! A year can be broken down into months, and days, so just take things as they come and forget the rest for now.

You can do this! You can do this! You can do this!

Just making sure you got that last part.

Sorry you're going through a rough time these days. I hope things begin to look up for you soon. Sometimes you just need to take things one day at a time :)
