(count calories/exercise/relaxing thoughts!)
Weight: 137.0

i've decided i'm getting sick of eating unhealthy. not totally sick, but i am trying to work the veggies back in, slowly. i feel that my lack of energy this past month was due in part to unhealthy eating of high fat foods and low fiber. so, that's my plan - healthier eating. not strictly healthy, though. i am still ready to eat anything i want with nothing off limits.

today is done thank the lord. not kidding. very challenging week. i haven't had acne this bad since....before the summer. ewww. at least it'll have time to improve before my friend's wedding next week.

breakfast: 300  jello, lots of tea and milk and equal, milkshake.

snack: yogurt, tea. 200 or so.

snacking: granola bar 140, celery, diet coke, 1/2 a sweet potato: 300 or so.

snack: marathon bar and some diet coke 150

dinner: spinach and dressing: 80, fried tofu and celery that i cooked 200, microwave dish 350: 630...probably another light milkshake for dessert...love them! so, 780 total here.

total cal: 1730. great....i decided to have a tasty yogurt and fries so 500 more.

TOTAL CAL: 2250 or so. good. AND THEN THE NOT SO GOOD OF DESSERTS...TOO MUCH TO LIST, 1500 MORE: TOTAL: 3750...

exercise: 30 min walk. i meant to go to the gym but got a bit held up. it's 6:35, i'm having dinner. maybe doing schoolwork. and then going to sleep. i plan on the gym tomorrow morning or evening but i just can't right now. i'm seriously exhausted from horrible sleeping and just not feeling right this week. it's gonna be ok though. i'm happy it's the weekend, for sure!

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

Weight: 137.0

past 7 days calorie average: 2086. good.  past 37 day average cal per day: 2516.  approximately 3.3 - 5.5 lb gain.  This is not bad at all, especially if my gain is closer to 3 lbs!  I am doing good. And this whole week, i've maintained my calories.  I am happy with myself. and I am happy with today. 

i do have a goal that i am going to try to lose the 3-5 pounds I've gained and to continue with healthy weightloss. But, my other goal is to eat within maitenance calories. I can't push things. and right now i'm enjoying being able to eat MORE rather than less.

let's go yankees.

Breakfast: 200 with an episode of complete nausea after. wish i took the day. feeling horrible. what is with me?  i have been extremely lethargic for 3 weeks.

snack: NONE. stomach playing tricks on me.

lunch: sweet potato and salmon w. bbq sauce! 400, celery 20, chicken noodle soup 70 around 500.  (wonderful lunch!)

TSF: 700 all primarily healthy. lunch was leftovers my mom had cooked. i feel the need to start eating healthier at lunch! 

snack: similiar to breakfast which is a lite milkshake. maybe. we'll see!

dinner: i'll make sure to have plenty veggies. probably a stir fry.

snack/dinner: 280 in yogurt/jello, tea 50, fries 300, and then 800 more. total here: 1420, two rolls and pb: 500 more:

total cal: total 2620.

exercise: probably just treadmill for 1/2 hour. maybe nothing. tomorrow will be gym and weights! yay. studying and bed early tonight. last night i watched the yankee game and i'm pooped, again!

Thanks for the comments. So far this site seems great. It's good to know I'm not alone in this battle! Seems like your doing great so good for you! I hate those days when your just unmotivated specially the weather I find can really bring you down. I usually pop some upbeat music and I am good to go! I'll keep an eye on your progress...I'll let you know how the gym goes on Monday.

picking up parents from the airport today. they were gone 13 days total :-)

ok, off to study for a bit before heading off to school!  have a great day everyone.  so glad i didn't study at night!

EXERCISE: WHAT SHALL IT BE!!?? depends what i feel like, probably not too much cardio today. and probably weights included. i miss the gym. wasn't there since sunday. i was too tired with what i had to do all week, being on my feet most of the day for mon, tues, wed, and then studying. couldn't pull off the gym too without feeling like i would wear myself too thin and get sick from lack of sleep...weights, elliptical, walking. yay!

BUSY WEEK.  NO GYM SINCE SUNDAY. THAT'S OK.   after all, i can't exercise if i'm exhausted and getting sick is not an option right now for me! :-)

breakfast, snack, lunch: 700 cal.

late 5:45 snack: jello 120, coffee 70, smoothie 160, diet soda: 350 :-)

popcorn and ravioli 540

total 1590 :-)

good thing: 2181 calories per day over the past 7 days. :-)

HOWEVER, OVER THE PAST 30 DAYS ON HERE I BINGED NUMBEROUS TIMES.  my daily average of calories over the past month is 2617 calories per day. almost a 5 lb gain since it is at least an extra 500 cal per day on most days. what to do about that? nothing. what to do in the future? breathe and think about my actions and if i really want to reach for more food! is food what i really need at the moment or is my body yearning for something else?

umm, more calculations....and an 89 or so day average (i could have gotten a day wrong here and there haha) of 2415 calories per day. This is still about a 5 or 5.5 pound gain.

so, no matter how i look at things, i gained 5 lbs in the past few months. not bad, not good. it just is.

5 lbs in the long run is not a lot. and it is easily mended. although, i am NOT weighing myself anytime in the near future. i am no longer interested in the scale. I have my clothes and my feelings. that's all i really need right now.

:-)

no scale necessary! :-)  well, right now. scales are great for MAINTAINING, but i am not there yet!

I am happy with this.

BED.  hopefully at least weights at the gym. tough week but i can get through this with less damage from here on out! yesterday has passed! :-)

i must be in this to win this.  too much backsliding. i will not be at my goal by the wedding. but, i must BELIEVE that this doesn't mean i should stop trying. I MUST NOT stop trying. right now, i am backsliding...but, at this moment, i'm not. i feel good i know i can handle what comes my way. things have been looking up lately, especially at school.  i must remember this when i get in a bingy  mood. there is no reason to not RISE to the pressure.  when pressure comes, i will NOT fall....i am trying to work harder.  :-)
