Weight: 140.0

today was pretty good. i let myself get toooooo hungry bc i had a crappy lunch of 100 cal wheat thins, coffee, and a kashi (has some protein like 6-7 grams bar).  ehhh. not good, i was sooooo shakey by 3. and i had lunch at noon. ugh. shouldn't be that way!

breakfast: different: fruit and a yellow pepper: 150 or so.

snack: bagel w. egg: 250

lunch: horrible! lol. 300

snack 1: bar, pepper, tomato: weird, i know. 270 or so.

snack 2: ugh...a different kind of kashi bar. 150 hmmm, i had 3 bars today! weird.

dinner: another yellow pepper, cucumber with light dressing 100. another weight watchers fiber bagel w. light spray toasted 170 or so and then with cheese 100 and egg 80 total here: 450 or so.....

total today: 1570 (but i really did want lower. however, this is totally fine!!!!) and i know i burned more than that amount today. so all is good in the world. if only everyday i could be successful....

EXERCISE: was tired. one mile at the park...then 20 minutes on elliptical at the gym and some pushups/abs, back work.

all in all a nice day. i am still recovering from last weekends HUGE milers of 9 and 9.5 miles per day. this past weekend i get in an 8.5 mile day. so all in all, i guess i'm improving more than i give myself credit for. i couldn't run today. i tried and gave up at the park. i NEEDED some other kind of cardio. was almost gonna ride my bike but decided on the gym elliptical.........

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

Today I finally stepped on the scale: 140. nothing to be proud of, but i have lost a few since being 145. I need to be out of the 130s....hmmm, too far fetched? i don't think so...

early breakfast: honeydew melon 80 or so.

later breakfast: NOT SURE...might be another grilled cheese and egg like yesterday...not the healthiest, but it tasted so good...i might be a healthier bread to make it on and lower the calories...arg. and i'm picking up some avocado from the supermarket....i love that stuff!

lunch: fiber one bar, drinks: 150

snack: cookies. 270

snack before dinner: special bar called "full bar" search online if you're interested. it actually does work. (as would eating anything 30 min before a meal, lol) 200 or so

calories before dinner: around 1,000.

darn bbq dinner that i don't want to eat:  i would like to watch myself and NOT go overboard. would have liked to only eat 500 more...but there will be some grilled veggies in olive oil and the protein is meat. so, i will most probably have more around 800 or so cal...whatever, at least it's healthy food. i'll try harder this week. and 1800 is not crazy like 3100 or something horrible. even 2000 wouldn't suck that bad....so i'm enjoying dinner. whatever that means.

exercise: not really much. short walk with grandma. my left foot hurts bad.

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

Hey, 140 would be heaven to me, haha! But we're all different. I never thought I would get over 170 again but here I am. Just keep on working on it, it will happen. Thanks for all your comments!

vivpet on 05/31/2009:
Thanks for stopping by.

2 slices of wheat bread toasted 2 or 3 Tomate Slices 3 or 4 Cucumber slices Avocado Letuces or alfalfa Mayonaise and/or mustard

small breakfast around 8am: cherries, drink mix: around 100.

went back to sleep till after 11 or so! wow. i didn't sleep well all week so i'm thankful i was able to sleep late today!

lunch at 11:45 or so: tomato, grilled cheese: 500 was great!

i kinda screwed up on dinner, having a full healthy meal, chips, then 2 bowls of cereal and ice cream after. but, calories are ok. 2250 calories.  it's funny how i didn't stick to eating in the 1500s...but if i consider my exercise today, this calorie amount is fine.

exercise: 8.5 miles or so! :) most was walking. i will try to keep active tomorrow, too. my parents want to have a bbq.

edit: i had a good day. bad mood during school, at lot due to overeating last night and the test we had AFTER lunch that i had to think about all day....but afterwards i had a very healthy snack, took a nap, and walked 3 miles. had a late dinner around 8pm. gonna read, rest up. I SO WANT to exercise a lot tomorrow, my ankle may not be up to it.... but i'll try.  would have LIKED to go 12 miles.....we shall see....12 miles with rests with snacks.... soon enough i will accomplish this.

snack after school: 2 small peaches, a yellow pepper, a red pepper, drink mix: around 200

snack afer walking: 170 healthy fiber bar about 30 minutes before dinner to get rid of most of my appetite...it works!

dinner: healthy choice mediterranean pasta so good! 360, tons of celery 60 total 420

total cals today are good: 1310. this is as good as it can get. and healthy today.

avg cals between today and yesterday bc it's on my mind: 2230. thank gosh! :) thank gosh....thank you jackie. :) i had to accomplish this, to get over yesterday. i am on a good streak. i don't want to give up, ever.  i just can't. this HAS to be a good rest of the year. a good summer. i need this. i can do it. no matter what, i'm going to get there. i have NO reason to fail.  i have age, parents, and close friends on my side. what more do i need. and thanks to all of you, always.


breakfast: fruit 80

snack: bar 140 healthy kashi bar

lunch: 100 cal pack of cheez its, coffee, another kashi trail mix bar: 300

doing good keeping it low. yesterday's high cal day is really unfortunate. i feel so gross right now.

total so far: 520. if i can do 1200, that would be the best. or, i'll just try keeping it below 1500.

can't wait for it to be the weekend already. decided to go to the hospital libarary for a break at lunch...

take care everyone, catch up with you later...  ;)

remember yesterday when i said i wouldn't be binging....etc...?

well, i did today. i didn't have to, but was exhausted, didn't exercise bc i had errands after school. oh well. it could be FAR worse. but, i need to pull in the reins...i was doing good losing some weight! i need to continue not just gain it back.

today's calories could have been around 1700 without a problem. but i continued to eat....and 4 servings tortilla chips, 5 ice cream pops, and 1 large bowl of granola later: 3150 cals today.  ehh. what can i do now. i can eat better on the weekend....and exercise...but i may take friday's exercise easy....i was hoping to do a lot on saturday, but if my ankle isn't better i may not be able to do what i was hoping.

goodnight all, it's been a week of lots going on. but a pretty good one.

edit: dinner: 600 of chips and a pizza pocket thing...followed by 440 cal of ice cream....ew? so 1040 just for dinner (i wasn't gonna exercise, but i think i NEED the gym....going even though my hair is still wet from the shower i took earlier...)

total calories today weren't the greatest, large portions late in the day. total: 2260. i should definitely swing by the gym...YEAH...do the elliptical for an hour and then go to bed...i really, really should!!!! ok...i'm going.... :)


exercise: should do a limited amount. body is still tired. maybe just a short walk on the treadmill in my house. i'm not feeling the gym at all. i don't think i want to binge, so that's good. i do want a shower right now though.... :)  yeah, no gym today... i know i said that yesterday, too, but you can't force yourself...i'm still not over monday night's sleep deprivation... :) treadmill later at home....

Sorry to hear about the guy thing, I know how frustrating it is. But if it isn't working now, it won't be working five years from now. So I say to hell with it. Just take care of yourself and love will find you.

sheeeeeet!!! I can't sleep! what a wonderful start to this week, i tell you!!!!! :(  It's already 2:30am..........


breakfast: sandwich of egg white 60, greens 10, avocado 150, bread 240 and a yogurt 60. total: 520 good stuff!

snack: strawberries, bar.

snack diet drink

800 cal before dinner.

dinner? (bbq later at my house...) 900 cal at dinner. approx. was healthy stuff actually. lots of meats.

total: 1700-1800 or so. nice job to me!!!! wahoo!

exercise was 9.5 miles walk/jog AND biking for a little while! WAHOO. i CANNOT mess this up....gotta continue. need to look good.....

i am depressed a little over this guy though. :( he's an ass. didn't want to meet up enough. so, i'm not contacting him. if he doesn't make any more attempts (he did but it didn't work out at all....) to hang out, i'm done. just wish there was some other guy waiting lol. that's life i guess......don't want to hang out with this company right now.... :(

i hate it when i get into these moods.....and yes, the guy blew me off. therefore, i'm done. shouldn't this be the other way around!? oh well.  he says he's tired and going to another state for lunch tomorrow to meet up with someone. so i'm NOT texting that a$$hole back. it is unfortunate i wasted so much time with this dude. i think i may delete him off facebook once again. forever. i don't need that crap in my life. however, for the moment, i'm gonna leave him on. i don't want him to think he is able to piss me off this easily.?! yeah, i am not taking it all too well. loser. i know!
