Horn have you ever considered using a meal plan? What are your goals? That is way too many calories for hardly any exercise.

instead of 8, we are starting today at school at 10am!  no complaints here!  catching up on some cleaning - putting all my clean laundry away. maybe a quick walk outside, even 10 or 15 mintues would be good. and then driving to school, i might go out a buy a big milkshake - but it's one where i ask for a soy protein chocolate packet, a special chocoalte fiber packet, and unsweetened almond milk and ice! all that, adds up to be HUGE...cups worth, all for up to 250 calories. it's seriously quite a deal calories-wise.

breakfast: orange 140, kombucha 70: 210, bran and milk 140: 350 total.

snack: milkshake? 250, coffee 50

lunch: in hospital at school - heavy, wasn't feeling satisfied....700

tsf: 1350

snacks: 350

1700...

dinner:"light egg rolls," according to the package, anyways. 480, yogurt 100....and splurged on cookies. 400 more.980 and then 600 more. i'm good like that! bluh. 1600 for dinner.

total: 3300.

1.5 mile walk.

 

EARLY to bed :-) so that i'm ready for the city tomorrow!  going out to eat with my friend kathryn at a very fancy fish restaurant. she does restaurant reviews and the meal is FREE.

Chia is awesome- I have been taking for the last week and they are virtually tasteless, have protein and fiber, are a complete source of Omegas and are gluten, wheat, dairy and soy free. Here is a little blurb on them (oh, and they are super cheap too! I got a 1/2 lb. for around $4 at the farmers market and you only need to use about 1tbs. at a time)

Weight loss: Chia Seeds block some of the food you eat from being digested. Lower your caloric intake by eating Chia Seeds with meals.

Feel fuller: Chia Seeds absorb ten times their weight in water, making you feel fuller, so you eat less.

Omega-3: Chia Seeds are the richest plant source of Omega-3. This nutrient protects your body from inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease.

Endurance: Chia helps your body store water, keeping you hydrated.

Blood Pressure: Chia Seeds have been found to lower blood pressure.

Heart Disease: University of Toronto found that Chia Seeds help lower the risk of heart disease.

Benefits for Diabetes: Chia Seeds slow the process of carbohydrates converting into simple sugars, lowering blood sugar.

Detoxification: Chia Seeds' robust soluble fiber and healthy oils remove toxins from your body.

Hello there :) I'm not in pain, not now that I've lost a lot of weight. :) I'm absolutely pain-free. And I love tennis... So, maybe 1 training a week won't hurt anyone. Of course, I don't want to play with my health (funny, coming from a 263 lbs adult...)... not anymore.

I hope today is a great diet day. Keep up the good work.


just42day on 05/11/2010:
Hope you feel better. Sometimes when I'm not feeling great, I force myself to move around/do some type of physical activities and it often makes me feel better (sometimes not:( Anyway, feel better soon.


KathyBlue on 05/11/2010:
Maybe you should read a book on overeating, and how to help it. It's good you have a normal weight but there's a problem around those thousands of calories plus...


geevee on 05/11/2010:
At least you can sleep. That's a huge plus in my book!


brownbeauty on 05/11/2010:
I was bulimic when I was in highschool. I used to binge and then throw up. It was the only way to keep my weight down. Im not saying you are but its just your eating habits reminded me. Good luck and wish you well :)

jojobean on 05/10/2010:
it's amazing how the small things add up, like raisins and so on. why don't you try swapping the mcdonalds snack with some fruit, and divdeing the calories you would have at lunch with dinner, this should cut the calories down a bit. xoxo

Hey,,,,Thank you, there will be times when I slack off, but I can never stay away too long, Cause I just love you all, You are my second family. Hugs!
