(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 134.0

breakfast: "light" goatmilk ice cream: 200 cal.  it's not called "light" but it is....you gotta try this stuff: LaLoo's is the brand. wow. the flavors are superb. i had a strawberry/balsamic flavor the other day and i had a coffee based flavor today. some of the best ice cream i've had, and low calorie compared to  ben and jerry's. half the calories of ben and jerrys. 150 cal per 1/2 cup. pretty good.

snack: 

2 hours weightlifting.

calories: 1750 or so. perfect....late night snack: 350

total: 2100. good.

just a bit upset, depressed. went on a job interview yesterday but there was no way i'd get the position bc there were tooooo many applicants and some of them had lost jobs due to budget cuts and i have a job but not in the field i was applying, so these other people that were excessed from teaching had one up over me already...used a half tank of gas to become fully depressed over the course of 24 hours.

 

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/17/2011:
That sounds interesting, where are you getting it? I require some kind of ice cream in the summer and I'm trying to avoid the Haagen Daaz in my fridge for the boys.


Em17 on 06/17/2011:
Hmm sounds very weird lol. Have a great day =)


thinkpositive on 06/17/2011:
I love goat cheese so think I would like the taste. Thanks for the tip. Maybe I could find it at Whole Foods??


hollybelle on 06/17/2011:
Oh, another food I want to try! I'll look for it!


legcramps on 06/17/2011:
Sounds interesting! I bet I can't find that stuff anywhere near me :(

Have a lovely weekend :)


V on 06/18/2011:
Sorry about the interview :( Please try not to let this defeat you!!


h82bfat on 06/18/2011:
I hope you're feeling a little less down in the dumps today... if not, move on over - I'm right there with you!! Our mantra today will be: Happy thought, happy thought, happy thought!

Weight: 134.5

1 hr bike ride

134.5 lbs today...wahoo!  the scale said it and i was surprised. I am so glad that the exercise (must be the wieghtlifting mostly!!!) that i do puts me in a position to eat more and not have to restrict my diet at all. thank god for that.  and if i binged just a little less, which yes, i am working on, i will be able to lose weight quite easily....which i already am!

breakfast: 2 greek yogurts w. some chocolate stevia and nutmeg: 200.

early lunch: 2 homecooked matzahs salt and pepper 240, baked teryaki tofu 160, green pepper 50, orange 100: 550

tsf: 750 good.

snacks 500 (not all at once, 2 granola bars, one big banana), 250 (salted roasted cashews)

dinner: 360 in a sandwich, a gulp of sour milk yuck!!!, and then ice cream (was worth it!!!) 450 more.

total today: 2400 or so?

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 9.5 lbs to go!

V on 06/16/2011:
Congrats!!! Keep up the awesome workouts :)


h82bfat on 06/16/2011:
Horray for you! I too would much rather "work it off" than watch my food, however, I know that eventually I'l hit my plateau & have to make those hard decisions!! ;c) Let's keep our momentum going, shall we?!


KathyBlue on 06/16/2011:
Nooo, I won't eat too little! :) I don't want to enter into a vicious circle of guilt/punishment because that would be a ticket to hell...


Umpqua on 06/16/2011:
Yay for scale movement! I'll be reporting a gain tomorrow, I'm within a few pounds of where I want to be. I think it will always be bumpy like this, maintenance is SO hard. The exercise is huge though, and I also enjoy being able to eat more without the guilt. Have a great one!


FitAmbitions on 06/16/2011:
whoo whoo 1 hour on the bike, gotta love it and YEAH for the scale shift!


hollybelle on 06/16/2011:
Thanks for the reminder that weights will burn lots of calories! Keep up the good work, girlie!

I hate making mistakes due to working too fast and not looking over my work... I made the mistake just recently of doing an agenda incorrectly for a meeting with high level physicians. They weren't happy with me. I wasn't happy with me. Notice the unhappiness going on?

Good job at the gym yesterday!

Good morning! Well, if it's permanent then rain is not supposed to ruin it, right? :) Don't be nervous, you'll be pretty. Sorry about your friend - these funerals are rougher than the peacefully passed by's. Stay strong!


loveray on 06/12/2011:
im so sorry to hear about your friend! i hope you have a peaceful day - let me know how your hair comes out! i have been considering that process for a long time! xo


hollybelle on 06/12/2011:
I'm sorry I missed your earlier post about your friend. It's almost 1:00 here and I will be thinking about you and your friends during the next hour. About the hair straightening-you were actually able to get that done on a Sunday? Salons aren't open here on Sunday. The lady I go to for haircuts specializes in the Brazilian straightening. She has used some of the process on my hair bc since going gray I also have more course curly hair than before, go figure! It's awesome when she does that.....I'll bet you are lovely, anyway it goes.....why not post a quick pic here or on FB for us? :o) Interview next week - YAY! Sounds interesting. Fingers crossed.


Em17 on 06/12/2011:
Hope your hair stays straightened =). Hope the ceremony goes real well


V on 06/12/2011:
I bet your hair looks fabulous :)


nosetwitch on 06/12/2011:
