Horn_Of_Plenty - Thursday Jun 28, 2012
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 124.5

Good Morning. I've been up since 3:00am with insomnia.  Went for a jog from 5:10-5:40.  I'm stressed bc I've had late nights with work/meeting Mon, Tues, Wed and I haven't slept well all week including Sunday because of this...

Sleep is important, I'm trying, but it's NOT possible to get sleep sometimes when I want to exercise after work when I have to work overtime...

Breakfast: big wrap 250 with chicken 250 and plain greek yogurt with a oil/pepper spread mixed in (very satisfying) 160: 660. fine.

snack: coffee for sure....protein bar. 250?

lunch: green beans/almonds 80, chicken, a lot, 300?, pita bread 100 200, pickles. 500. that's it....not taking boss' food today....

1410-1450 approx. ended up closer to 1600 after lunch...ok...

snack: blueberries, seltzer, protein shake, pickled cauliflower, a large tomato, (leftovers i had at work) 350...

dinner: i have no clue and don't wanna think about it right now...350, two protein bars.

2300, total....good considering i was up since 3am...........!

exercise: half hour in AM bc i couldn't sleep, thank god i did it now i can sleep earlier!, and about 40 min in PM...mostly bike, some walking.

My Adult Life Weight Fluctuations:

17yrs-20 yrs...weight gain. 110lbs-130lbs This issue begins senior year of high school lasting my first 2 yrs of college and has continued ever since....

20yrs-21yrs Weight Loss 130lbs-105lbs Junior and Senior Years of College (lots of mainly good stress, important classes and performances(

21yrs-24yrs Weight Maintenance 110lbs Senior Year of college, first 3 years as a music teacher (lots of usually healthy stress, decent jobs)

24yrs-26yrs - Weight Gain 115lbs-140lbs at times.. hired as a Teaching Assistant, not teacher (despressed, low salary), Xray school first year (change of lifestyle in a bad way, needing to study again at home/procrastinating, binging during studying/before studying)

26yrs-27Years - small weight loss, not enough, starting to maintain at a lesser weight, but not lowest weight 130lbs/135lbs Xray school second year/teaching music lessons, working as a substitute teacher (After a summer trip to Israel, I lost a little weight & getting used to the xray program, I began to mesh with life better and eat better, binge less)

27-29 Weight Maintenance while at this current job (lots of stress, first year...desire to look good/give a good presentation of my apperance at work), sometimes weightloss, but holding onto extra weight despite my gym/exercise efforts due to a sedentary job and big but thankfully very infrequent binges... I started at 27 around 135 and slowly got to 130 at 28...even getting back down to 124 at age 29...but recent binging has brought me to around 128....need to get back on track more...Would like to be 115-119 again.... (working in an office desk job, no physical activity during the day at all)  second year on the job has been depressing, but i know i don't want to go back to weightgain and i'm doing mostly everything to counteract that. MY MAJOR BATTLE RIGHT NOW IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP, WORK HOURS ARE TOUGH AND MAKE FITTING IN THE AMOUNT OF EXERCISE THAT I NEED TO BE A REAL PROBLEM FOR ME.

2350 today. no regrets.

45-50 min of cardio exercise.

i was really beat, but got to the gym and did my thing. this is very important to me - to continue no matter what.

I will reach my goal by my 30th birthday, 9/9/12.  why not?  I have ample time, summertime! the best time for cold drinks and weightloss.

115...is my ultimate goal.

right now i'm in the upper 120's, close to 130 but not there..

so, 10 lbs? i can do it, just one lb or so a week....let me get there! I know I can do it if I put my mind to it, especially weekdays....weekends i will not be so strict, you can't be all the time, not me anyways....

that's why keeping up exercise is sooo important, with a damn desk job........

1700 calories today, and all healthy...really. wow. good carbs, veggies, fruits, protein. wow - proud of myself hehe.

exercise: biking to and from gym with a little extra, around 30-40 min and full weights for about one hour there.

i burned a good extra 500 today yay...

so this week so far, I burned 1500 cal, about 1/3 lb...and i am gonna totally be weighing in the teens for my bday...but small steps, since i am really good at screwing up (getting scared of the change!? of getting out of my comfort zone..) when i almost get there!

got basically a full night of sleep, finally! :-)  or close to it, lol. fell asleep while reading a book, and i needed sleep way more than the book...so this is good.

i may do weights tonight at the gym, but prob just biking after work today.

breakfast: tea, bran crackers that i warmed and softened and then spread my yogurt/pumpkin/cinnamon/choc stevia on top of: 300 cal, great.

snack: bar, tea. 200

lunch: same as mon/tues: 600 at most. 50 more for orange slices from boss.

snack: fruit, SELTZER... 150 at most.

dinner: 700, a bit much, but worth every drop...well, every bite of sauteed spinach, salmon, and chocolate protein bar. eww, but yes, good.

2000 cal. = success.

hour of biking around neighborhood/to gym, stairclimber at gym, 10 min treadmill walk/jog at gym...did the gym to break up the monotony of doing just the bike. it's a lot easier when i do mutliple cardio activities than just one and time goes much faster!

(burned around 1,000 cal since Monday = success....doing well again!)
