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 :)

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!
