ugh....NEED a vacation.

evening edit: 2900 calories. 2 hours of weights, back, abs, at the gym.

worried about my job and my future. not worried about this job, but the fact that i will not be able to move out if i don't get another job or training in this new field. too much to talk about.

So sorry to hear HOP, hope the rest of your day goes better, hugs


shaunnac on 05/18/2011:
I am sending you all the positive vibes I can atm.


moogy on 05/18/2011:
I am sorry that your life is feeling so glum at the moment HOP. I hope that you can gain a different perspective on it or that you a unexpected break:)


hollybelle on 05/19/2011:
You can work things out HOP. For me, I left home at 19 and struggled through so many years, but eventually it got better-financially, that is. I had roommates for awhile. Not ideal, but I got better at pickng them :o) !! In this economy there are probably similar people out there who would like more options, too. The saying "strength in numbers" might apply to your desire to move out. For me the decision rested on the stress in moving out vs the stress of staying at parents house. Best wishes on working this out. Why not network a bit with others in same situation and see what can be worked out? One suggestion - if you do get roommate(s) I suggest planning the move in together and establishing "house rules" that everyone agrees on.

Go you! You must be so happy to be so close to your goal weight. I think the journey is even harder when you have a smaller amount to lose! Hopefully I will be saying "Only one pound to go" soon :)

Weight: 130.0

couldn't sleep last night, ended up having a lil dried fruit around 1am. total cal: 2150. good!

evening edit:

total calories around 2050.

1.5hr weights at the gym...was soooo good! I had skipped a day (Sunday) from my usual workouts....mother's day...today i felt extra strong and ready to perform weights because my body had many days to recover!  (Sat,Sun,Mon,Tues) 

I remembered, once at the gym, how much it means to me...to lift weights, that is.  It is a hobby and a passion of mine.  I enjoy being a strong female.  It makes me happy.  It also gives me a HUGE self confidence boost and ego boost like no other!  I can never quit the weights (just for the ladies on here who don't know me well,  I have been doing weight routines for a long time, with a few breaks inbetween, but generally speaking I've been lifting weights since the fall of 2005.  So, almost 6 years. 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

early 4am breakfast, couldn't sleep: healthy walnuts, cereal, 2 glasses milk 500

snack at 6:30: sip milk, jell ring, yogurt: 160.

660.

lunch: chicken, vegetables, light dressing 300.

hopefully have some tea today...sometime after lunch.

people in my office are sick, have horrible allergies, myself included with the second bunch, and are plain overworked and exhausted.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

loveray on 05/11/2011:
take care of yourself, HOP. drink some kombucha and lots of water. a hot yoga class or some stretching may help your energy as well. love you!


Em17 on 05/11/2011:
Don't breathe in the bad allergies =(. Just sleep, and drink tons of water for your energy =) Have a good day


moogy on 05/11/2011:
Sorry you are still fighting with those allergies, is it the change of season that kicks them off? My downstairs people always have hayfever in spring and the sniffles in Autumn from the change in the weather. Me I just stay the same all year round!!!! LOL Have the best day you can anyway HOP.:)


moogy on 05/11/2011:
So glad you had a good gym workout. You sound in good spirits! Nice to read:)
