hey girl, ive been thinking of smaller goals, i was thinking of changing my goal now to just losing 10 lbs and go from there...

weightlossyoyo on 10/02/2009:
WOW what kind of coffee did you have? 480 that should be some yummy coffee.

mskitty on 10/03/2009:
HEy, Just one day love. Just one day. Tomorrow will be better. I had a pretty nasty eating day myself. HAHA and a lot of it was from a frappuccino worth 630cals < can you believe that. Now I know why I got fat in the first place. Notice how obesity rates went steadily up as Starbucks started garnishing every corner.<fishy very fishy.

Better day than yesterday's 6,000 cal but i am totally exhausted.  didn't sleep enough bc i didn't spend my day well at home, i had too much energy. but i'm actually not upset. or overwhelmed about that.  I am only overwhelmed with what i missed in class on wednesday. my plan is to NOT take the tests tomorrow and just have the teacher give me what i missed - i'll make up the tests next week at lunch or something. shouldn't be too big a deal. there's no possible way i have the energy to study friday's info tonight and do well. i already have to make up 2 of wednesday's tests tomorrow, lol. 4 tests is out of the question for me, unless i'm trying to fail!!! haha...

so my car is currently still at the mechanic.  he couldn't find anything wrong and he said i wouldn't be charged and that is GREAT news.  i have decided i will join the gym of my alma matter - my college. it's only about 10-15 min away and has the best equipment and cheapest rates. $200 for the year, instead of the $478 i almost paid for renewal at the gym i'm going to now, which i love bc i can bike there, but $478 is too much.  and lucille robers would be around 250 and i'm just not interested in looking at the gym.  it's closer, yes, and bikeable, but i'd rather be around males and females, and the younger the better! i'm not interested in an all female gym, i think it would serisouly mess me up, even fitnesswise!  i like male testosterone all around me! :)

breakfast: ices/coffee which i didn't get to finish bc my dad rushed me out to drive me to school so he could get to work. :) its ok, at least i got a ride. 100

snack: 150

lunch: 300

snack: 250

dinner: a flat 700 cal.  not bad, considering i was pretty hungry. and i chose what i wanted.

so the day ends, at 1500 total.

fine by me. i am not about eating really low cals anymore. i can't last on 1200 even 1300 is sometimes way too low. so i'm happy with this. and i may go to the gym for a little bit of elliptical, we'll see...

walked about 30 already. later: elliptical 1/2 hour or  so and weights. what a day!

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

i screwed today up, most obviously. but that's done, so let's talk about the future.  i want those visible abs, visible muscles. so i just paid a new 13 month gym membership for around 485 dollars, however, i'm going to check out lucille roberts today, bc it would be over $200 cheaper.  and i like cheaper....


up EARLY to get to school to study.  but time is already running a little short!!! i shall get through it, as usual...

breakfast: ices, coffee, water.150

late breakfast: dunkin donuts and tea.  cereal, milk 320, yogurt110 followed by large, very large pieces of cake at home 1,000...change of plans, no school, car won't start!

total so far: 1580. fine!

lunch: same, as late breakfast and yogurt.   popcorn? 240, ice cream 250, cheese 200, bread 200, butter 100, 2 bananas 200 ha not so good.  cookies 400

ice cream 250, cheese 150, and pretzels 240, and yogurt 170. whew.

snack: ices again?  not sure.

dinner: ?

total cal: approx. 4,000.  i just cannot deal with the temptations of food in my house! crazy.

update: at least 5,500cal. it's amazing i have this much junk in my house!

exercise: not sure, but i'll do it....later.  probably a bike ride to the verizon store to replace my phone that just broke....and my car needed to be towed today, my reason for sitting home. blah blah.  not really upset, but this does kinda stink!

just a walk, later. probably to stop by and check out lucille roberts.

Have a good day! Dont stress.

I had to give up my vehicle for half a day in order to get the oil changed, and that stunk, too! It sucks when you know you don't have a vehicle - for however long. Try to have a good day today anyways! :)

mskitty on 09/30/2009:
Well I have been there recently. Just gotta be hard on yourself tomorrow. If you set a few goals tomorrow and you reach them all you'll probably feel a lot better. Tomorrow is a new day.

grumpy on 09/30/2009:
I like cheaper too! So glad you can look at the future and make your plans other than, as we say in portuguese, cry over the spilled milk. :) Thanks for the compliments! I'm excited my hair is growing long again. Remember how long it used to be? I miss it! Maybe by March!!! I am also glad to hear you want the guy to be as good to you as you deserve and not just good. I settled for not what i deserved for a long time, remember? i guess it was part of a learning curve for me to be able to be with someone who is good for me and treats me as I deserve as Johnny is. I'm very happy with him now. It gets better each day. :) This meal was soooo easy to make! Make it too. :)

weightlossyoyo on 09/30/2009:
Hope things get better for you soon! I know how it is, my car is acting up right now too.

fasted for most of the day. (religious reasons)  did have some diet drinks.

5pm: ices, decaf coffee, diet soda.

BIG family meal: i'm not listing what i had bc it really doesn't concern me to list. I'll just say I definitely had seconds and much dessert. and the food was satisfying, i wasn't picky. and i left dinner satisfied, not wanting ANY more. even an oreo klondike bar was included.

3 mile walk in the later afternoon before dinner.  i wanted to do more but was exhasuted since i didn't eat until after.

goodnight all.

have a wonderful week.

florida guy and i now text each other all the time and we have spoken a bit more on the phone.  i wonder what he thinks about all this. probably nothing. lol. i wish he would consider me something more than a friend...and that he'd look foward to seeing me when he comes back on Thanksgiving. I still am not sure if he would be able to hang out with me only or if he'd be totally uncomfortable putting aside some time during the holiday just to see me. it's almost too early to ask him. but i will probably talk to him a little bit tonight about everything.

mskitty on 09/25/2009:
I find that when in doubt when it comes to men you gotta be straight forward and quite blunt about these things. Because whats the worst that could happen. He tells you hes not that into you. < UM Great! now you just saved yourself how ever many crazy nights wondering about him and can take that time that you would have been wasting on him and put it to better use. Whats the best that could happen. He tells you he likes you or that there is something there. So not only have you not wasted anymore time but you now have a firm grip of were you stand and can start figuring out where to go from there. Honestly men are pretty easy to read, if he likes you he'll have no problem making the time during the holiday...even if its just for an hour or so they find a way. Heck my husband (when we were still dateing) cut his Vacation short, got a moving van and came and picked me and all my stuff up on the other side of the province (14 hours away) after I came and visited him for a week a month prior. (we telecommunicated inbetween)

When men want something and its mutual they go get it. Men who are not interested can be a bit dence and lead women on without knowing it. Its all in the actions they take that tells you their true feelings. If he likes you, your about to find out for sure.
