Weight: 126.2

So no real weightless this week as I will be balancing out my overeating all weekend.

1650 today is super :)

Saturday is balanced out. Now gotta work on what happened Sunday. 3600 is a lot to balance.

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

Ah, the weekends always get us!


SkinInTheGame on 06/02/2014:
Weekends need to be the cheat days because they lack structure!

I always get to that point on a weekend day when my resolve is tested!

But you watch yourself very we'll!

I like the way you tick and tie things!

Weight: 126.2

700 cal before lunch.

big, tasty lunch / snacking: 400, 250, 200...1550 total cal so far today, good. 1650 after strawberries

more strawberries 50, small persimmon 50, chips 150, yogurt 150

peanut butter on wrap 250 approx.

another not so great day, but feeling like I needed the extra carbs & food (to a degree...)

350 snack...fruit and crackers and chips

...white sticky rice with added peanut butter. around 400. followed by protein bar 250.

3300 cal. I may have to go up to 3500 today, probably not.

so far, including yesterday's 2600 which is 400 calories over, today I am about 1100 cal over. sucky. so this week will be spent balancing out these couple days.

Monday should balance out Saturday. and 2 days of about 1700 should balance out today. yucko.  this is my punishment for overeating...I guess I was also exhausted which is what led to this, as well.

not doing well, complete binge. past two weekends I've done this.  it could be due to what I am eating during the week & also how I'm really trying to keep calories Lower (but they aren't really low!) during the week. and last week, I didn't even keep them that low.  I noticed I was thinner this morning at the gym.  it's hard for me to keep this up, but it felt so good to get on the scale and see this weight.

3600 total.

The weight you see posted is my actual current weight according to the scale at the gym.  It's pretty low & I haven't seen a number this low in awhile. I am off to a good start....I will totally be keeping it up!  I am totally gonna look even better by month's end.  Yes, I drink too much coffee, but right now it's working...this diet I mean, and I don't want to switch anything around!

1600 or so before dinner.

BIG dinner:

soup 100?, tons of sautéed veggies 300?, wrap 100 with chicken 200 and little rice 50: 750

total: 2350, bit over, but it's the weekend :)

exercise: legs bothering me, but wore the compression sleeves and went to mall for a couple hours with my best friend. I am SO SO SO out of shape with even walking my gosh! I also did a nice abs/back workout at the gym this morning!

 

I had a snack before bed, bringing me actually to 2600, not great either. gotta work on this for next weekend.

Today went well but I was definitely dragging. Glad to get through and excited for tomorrow.

Calories thru lunch 1150

Calories after work 300

Calories after gym 250

1700 perfect.

Exercises were abs and back at lunch and upper body after work. I must keep going with abs :) and find ways to fit them and back in.

Sunday splurge. It's ok. Woke up at 5am and ate till 6am... Seaweed salad 150?, sautéed cooked seasoned cabbage 250?, maple brown oatmeal with a banana 300, coconut chocolate protein bar 250, some crackers 100 and some peanut butter 100, strawberries 50. Total 1200. It's weird though bc I feel satisfied and not like I binged. My legs bother me already - I was on them yesterday a lot. I am basically planning now a higher calories day, around 2600 allowance.

10am snack: more seasoned, sautéed cabbage & carrots (oh, it's good!) and strawberries. around 200. and broccoli raab leftovers. yeah.

1400, almost 11am...I guess not bad if my calories can be up to 2600 today.  I need to think positively about this!

1700 cal, 1pm, good :)

2750.

gave into temptations.

3150 cal, at least. tomorrow's a new day. can't think about today anymore.

It's a holiday weekend - give yourself a break! Tomorrow it's back to it!

I love how you track things closely - I set a strategy for what I am going to eat and then that's it.


SkinInTheGame on 05/26/2014:
Also you did so well with will power this month! Great job!

good morning and happy 3day weekend :-D

I am proud of myself for sticking to a diet for 2 weeks straight (really just 4 days out of every week where I focus on keeping calories lower than I have been for the past couple years).  I have noticed an immediate change already, in these 2 weeks, but it's slow.  However, I know myself & what I am capable of.  I also know my limitations...and if I push it too fast & too soon, I will completely fail.  So, I guess to lose the weight, I will be sticking with this diet, where at least 4 days out of the week I have low, but definitely not super low, calories.  It'll let me lose a 1/2 pound per week. Decent...not fast or exciting at all though.  But, as an adult, I guess it's just how life works.  We need to be patient for the things we really want.  And so, I guess I will have to be patient and lose the weight the right way.  I hate how slow the process is though! :D

oh, and drinking a whole squeezed lemon in hot water with stevia is great for relieving any constipation.  This past week at work was so much better than any week I've had there in months.  I would drink this mix every day each morning...and it works great.  it works better than black coffee bc it is a healthier way of working on your body's system.  and actually, I think I used two lemons (like 4 cups to drink) with the stevia.  It's like having lemon tea. 

just thinking out loud...6 weeks till july 4th.  if I kept this 4-day diet up till then, I could lose 3 more pounds. If so, I'd be back under 125.  That's cool....haven't been there in months.  I may as well stick with this because it really works so well.  Also, my digestion is better and I'm not as bloated bc I am not eating a thousand and one vegetables every night.

and then just another 6 weeks, and I'd possibly be around 121! and you know what, that is very low!  That would be the lowest I've weighed in years still! so why don't I quit complaining that weightloss is hard, stick to my guns, and have fun with this! 

It's a pretty cool diet.  hot water with lemon & stevia in the mornings.  A wrap for breakfast (either turkey, chicken, lox or anything high protein) with smart balance spread, green tea and/or sometimes coffee too at work, a bar as a snack, a healthy lunch but satisfying to get me through the workday, a snack of an apple and iced decaf coffee after work, and a bar or shake for dinner.  I do this four days a week. and by doing it that way, I am able to lose 1/2 pound a week.  the bars I eat aren't cheap.  I have tried like every bar out there on the market, and I only eat high quality, satisfying ones.  some cost close to $3 at the health food store. and I mix them up, so I don't grow tired of them.

calories today so far: "apple pie" bar 180 and grapefruit 140 or so. 320. 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast 500

820 :)

Around 2250 including 2 small hotdogs and buns at a BBQ today. Perfect start to the weekend :)

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

SkinInTheGame on 05/24/2014:
Plenty - your diet makes so much sense! I am going to take points from it for next week. You are so right about slow and steady wins the race. It is also true that 4 days of limiting calories will show results!

I also like your style of "re - committing" to a plan in your entry - it's not only about the execution, but also about having a daily strategy!

I am with you and good job!!


SkinInTheGame on 05/24/2014:
Going to track now - husband is doing the shopping which includes turkey/lettuce for wraps, bars and lemons - I will let you know how it goes!

I am hoping for 179 by Tuesday!

Have a great weekend!
