i've decided i'm getting sick of eating unhealthy. not totally sick, but i am trying to work the veggies back in, slowly. i feel that my lack of energy this past month was due in part to unhealthy eating of high fat foods and low fiber. so, that's my plan - healthier eating. not strictly healthy, though. i am still ready to eat anything i want with nothing off limits.

today is done thank the lord. not kidding. very challenging week. i haven't had acne this bad since....before the summer. ewww. at least it'll have time to improve before my friend's wedding next week.

breakfast: 300  jello, lots of tea and milk and equal, milkshake.

snack: yogurt, tea. 200 or so.

snacking: granola bar 140, celery, diet coke, 1/2 a sweet potato: 300 or so.

snack: marathon bar and some diet coke 150

dinner: spinach and dressing: 80, fried tofu and celery that i cooked 200, microwave dish 350: 630...probably another light milkshake for dessert...love them! so, 780 total here.

total cal: 1730. great....i decided to have a tasty yogurt and fries so 500 more.

TOTAL CAL: 2250 or so. good. AND THEN THE NOT SO GOOD OF DESSERTS...TOO MUCH TO LIST, 1500 MORE: TOTAL: 3750...

exercise: 30 min walk. i meant to go to the gym but got a bit held up. it's 6:35, i'm having dinner. maybe doing schoolwork. and then going to sleep. i plan on the gym tomorrow morning or evening but i just can't right now. i'm seriously exhausted from horrible sleeping and just not feeling right this week. it's gonna be ok though. i'm happy it's the weekend, for sure!

past 7 days calorie average: 2086. good.  past 37 day average cal per day: 2516.  approximately 3.3 - 5.5 lb gain.  This is not bad at all, especially if my gain is closer to 3 lbs!  I am doing good. And this whole week, i've maintained my calories.  I am happy with myself. and I am happy with today. 

i do have a goal that i am going to try to lose the 3-5 pounds I've gained and to continue with healthy weightloss. But, my other goal is to eat within maitenance calories. I can't push things. and right now i'm enjoying being able to eat MORE rather than less.

let's go yankees.

Breakfast: 200 with an episode of complete nausea after. wish i took the day. feeling horrible. what is with me?  i have been extremely lethargic for 3 weeks.

snack: NONE. stomach playing tricks on me.

lunch: sweet potato and salmon w. bbq sauce! 400, celery 20, chicken noodle soup 70 around 500.  (wonderful lunch!)

TSF: 700 all primarily healthy. lunch was leftovers my mom had cooked. i feel the need to start eating healthier at lunch! 

snack: similiar to breakfast which is a lite milkshake. maybe. we'll see!

dinner: i'll make sure to have plenty veggies. probably a stir fry.

snack/dinner: 280 in yogurt/jello, tea 50, fries 300, and then 800 more. total here: 1420, two rolls and pb: 500 more:

total cal: total 2620.

exercise: probably just treadmill for 1/2 hour. maybe nothing. tomorrow will be gym and weights! yay. studying and bed early tonight. last night i watched the yankee game and i'm pooped, again!
