(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 124.5

(4500) or so. i may just forget about this and start all over again!  back almost to the original extra, a bit over a pound. i make a wrong decision to binge, but weirdly i don't regret it. i want to binge again now, Wednesday morning, but I won't.... :-(

another day where i overate a little at the end of the day. tomorrow's a new day, right?

binged a lot actually on the good stuff...high fat pita chip things, lots of cookies and milk, ice cream, and cashews. lol

around 3600-4000 cal.

but to work tomorrow...in terms of eating better!

exercise: just a walk. 3 mi.

i cannot sweat until tomorrow eve. i will do weights and hardcore workout tomorrow.

Progress as of today: 10.5 lbs lost so far, only 5.5 lbs to go!

Kati on 03/21/2012:
Well, you've been doing very well lately so I guess a day won't ruin all. Just extract some wise conclusions from it, raise your head and go ahead! :)


hollybelle on 03/21/2012:
Today is another day - go forth and conquer!

breakfast: eggs100, pita 150, yogurt 100: 350

snack: nuts 200! and a protein shake 200

lunch: chicken and butternut squash: and chips. around 500

1350

snack: big banana 150

dinner: more squash and chicken 300...and then a package of bbq salted sunflower seeds 150 450 total.

1950, ok...

healthy eating, but high in calories nonetheless because i just ate a bit too much of everything. not upset, but i know i can't always do this!

really healthy things...aside from the black coffee, massive banana (like two servings), and salted/bbq sunflower seeds with their shells...yes, i eat all of the sunflower seed including the shell - GREAT fiber!

anyways, i had a big snack after my walk. the snack was a zone bar, 200, greek yogurt 100, and a smallish orange 50. so, 350.

total cal: not horrible, 2350.

exercise: easy hour walk.

no crazy exercise today and tomorrow as i got my hair done and i cannot really sweat...it needs to stay dry :-)

total cal

Did you post any pics of your new hairstyle on FB? I want to seeeee... :) I have to check later, too bad accessing FB is denied here at work, LOL... Yes, I believe watching kids playing music is a load of fun. :) You can discover talents which adds excitement!

slept in till 9am lol: yummy breakfast: high fiber hot cereal made with almond/coconut milk 200, with egg + eggwhite added in 100, yogurt 100, bran 60, pita 150. 610.

BIG lunch: tofu: 125, lentil soup 250?, salad 20, pita 150, balasamic tomatoes & onions 50,600.

snack: 150.

total: around 2250 or so. maybe more, but i'm sayin' 2250!

excellent exercise.

bed early, work starts at 7am tomorrow.

just gonna read tonight.

got my hair brazillian straightened this afternoon, so i cannot sweat till Wednesday night after i wash it when i get home from work lol.  sweating/moisture ruins the process, so very light walking for the next few days. that's why i exercised VERY hard this AM with weights and stairclimber!

also, i am a little bit weak lately, i can only do 40-50 pushups per set - no more 70! i need some more rest and then i will get back into it. Wednesday night I hope for a major exercise routine that night....hopefully i will not have to be at work till 8am the next day! lol....we'll see. i have to deal with what i'm dealt, i know that! i am lucky for having this this job.

Have a great day!


Kati on 03/18/2012:
I still feel avoiding protein bars is the best choice for me. I have protein powder to mix with liquid (water or skimmed milk) and it contains far less calories than a bar. Bars are to replace meals and for ppl who want energy and maintain weight and muscle, and not for ones who desire losing fat weight.


Kati on 03/18/2012:
ohh, I hope you won't catch sg serious (flu) and recover fast. If you are ill, take it easy at work, please. How's the music going anyway???!

life's being caotic again? :-( I'm so sad you have sleeping issues. Sometimes I wonder, we should all move to Tibet and live with the monks, and learn their ways of "taking it easy but highly disciplined"...


V on 03/15/2012:
I swap out the sour mix for club soda since there is tons of sugar in most of the sour mixes out there and they are just as tasty :P

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 124.5

(1800) (100 cal more than yesterday, is ok.) approx. 1/2 a pound to get rid of.  should take me a week, or less if possible.

Healthy breakfast: whole wheat toast 200, eggs 200, eggplant spread 50, yogurt 100, tea, vitamin: 550. good.

snack: big banana i think or nuts or both. 150

lunch: healthy salad, toast, chicken, soup: 650

dinner: kombucha, fruit, veggies...some more chicken, buttery popcorn 550

snack: more fruit & veggies 100

dinner: 2 yogurts and a bit too many rice cakes...460 ( i meant just to have greek  yogurts with extra cinnamon and chocolate flavored stevia sooo good, but it's OK!)

overate a lil bit, but not really a binge at all.

2360 or so calories, hoping it's lower! but not really sure! i think it's pretty accurate, though.

exercise: 4 mi, 2.5 of them were done jogging. good.

sooo, overate around 100 cal today, that's ok.
