All caps and all I can say is boy those beta-endorphines really kicked in for you! Great! Good for HOP! Terrific day.


legcramps on 01/05/2010:
Just reading this entry has lifted my spirits. So, thank you, because i've been a bit of a grouch lately! And you know what? I have the same highs and lows as you do. I enjoy my highs to the fullest, because I know they won't last forever and I need to squeeze every moment out of them, save it up in a bottle, and open it up every so often so that I remember in those 'down' moments that there will be better days. Enjoy your high!


Soon2BThin on 01/05/2010:
Wow, who's doing all that yelling?? I envy your exuberance! Keep it going!

thankfully the weather held out today and wasn't too terrible. it was actually the pretty kind of snow that looks wonderful coming down and doesn't even stick to the ground. :) sounds like you had a great day too. hey, how do those snickers marathon bars taste? any good? how many calories? look at me, 1,000 questions! haha have a great day tomorrow :)


weightlossyoyo on 01/03/2010:
Great day on calories and workout! I wish vacation could last forever too. Thanks for your encouraging comment you left yesterday. I know how you feel about carrying weight on a short frame, I am only 5'3 and 211, but hopefully that will change :)


legcramps on 01/04/2010:
I would love to be on vacation forever! You're doing a great job.

Weight: 135.0

***I weighed in last night after not weighing for probably over a month, maybe two months, and i weighed around 136-137...but after lots of food. so, i know if i weighed in the morning i would be about 135. so my weight is actually accurate. nothing wrong with 135 to start the year!  I can tell you that in a few months, I will not be in the 130s anymore!***

breakfast: 340.

snack: similiar to breakfast: 320.

lunch: 550

snack: 250 cookies, apple

snack:  150, jello 100

1710...

dinner: i was planning on going out...then not...then going...then not...ended up not.  talked to a good female friend for like an hour and a half and promptly fell asleep!

exercise: will be cardio 45 min and abs/back.

happy new year's eve. i wish you all a good evening and new year. stay well, be careful.

thank you for your comments, i will be going through diaries tomorrow morning for sure!  i always value your opinions and advice.

exercise: one hot yoga class.

breakfast: oatmeal, yogurt, drink: 320 good fiber, good protein.

snacks during yoga: vitamin waters 50 needed something for sure.

lunch/snacking: fries,tofu,lettuce, jello, cooked cranberries: 510 good. good on sugars, fruit, protein, fat, carbs, veggie. (i know fries shouldn't be a regular part of a diet but lately i find a good excuse to get the mcdonalds dollar menu fries. basically, for the fat and carbs. i can always get NO salt fries there, but while doing yoga (especially yesterday's 6 hours) i knew i needed the sodium. so fries it was.)  of course i could have just had a baked sweet potato with olive oil and a little salt added! haha.

tsf: 880 nice...

tonight: at a friend's house...will keep calories in the back of my head - NO NEED to overeat...will prob. have a slice of pizza? celery/carrots. baking cookies but i don't think i will indulge.  i don't wanna ruin my progress. i may have lost a pound these past few days.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

sounds great to me! happy new year


Soon2BThin on 01/01/2010:
OMG, did you say "6 HOURS OF YOGA"? What have I been missing here? You rock! No wonder you're a slim 135! I get tired just thinking about it! Hope you had a good time at the party.

1750-1800 cal today. perfect day. SIX hours of yoga.  my last class was NOT easy and i did have to sit out the last couple postures. but all in all, i am EXTREMELY proud of myself. i never thought i could do that much HOT yoga in one day.

breakfast: 320.

snacks w. yoga: 270

lunch: fries/tofu: 460

tsf: 1050.

snack: cooked cranberries? before my 3rd yoga class today. ...and jello: 120 or so.

vitamin water throughout yoga 125

banana between yoga classes. 100.

tsf: 1400. good.

dinner:  not sure. maybe just dunkin donuts flatbread and more cranberries.

exercise:  3 FOUR hot yoga classes - 7:30am, 9:30am, 5:30, 7:30pm (it is completely part of the trial membership - $25 for the week, that's it!) this is great!  i will probably have to wait till my next break to do more yoga :-(

hollybelle on 12/30/2009:
Yes, a new year - out with the old in with the new. I am going to abandon even more old useless thinking myself this year. When you talk about this guy and not spending time with him is that because you don't want to, or it just isn't happening or both? Stay open to a relationship and it will happen. Are there any men in yoga class?


geevee on 12/30/2009:
I've done two yoga classes in a day several times, but I can't imagine three! You are really into it! Every time I go back to yoga, I stop thinking about food, am seldom hungry, and boy! do I firm up! The weight seems to magically melt away.

The sense of mental well-being is especially helpful. I remember after one session as I was walking out to the parking lot someone passing me asked if I had been in a yoga class. I said I had, and why? "You have the most relaxed look on your face!" How about that!

So keep telling us about yoga. You'll get me back in the swing yet!

Yes, have the kind of life you want now so you don't end up at the age of 60 wondering why you wasted your life. Like me, heh. Good things are out there for you, it will happen. And men, they're a dime a dozen, haha!


nita51 on 12/30/2009:
That's the spirit! Somewhere there's a great guy out there, for you, but I like the concept you have of working on YOU FIRST. Wish I had done that, because all I did was settle for guys that didn't have my best interest at heart. Now I'm alone, and thats fine,,because I need this alone time to focus on my health & weight loss goals. sorry to write so much, guess I got carried away. Take Care
