afternoon edit: it's been a good day. i did well at the hospital.  did well in front of whom it mattered. also, i arrived a few minutes late, but i got in a 10 minute walk to and from my car, as i missed a shuttle bus from my car lol.  i may start parking in this area so get in walks when it is nice out. overall, that's an extra mile on my day.

AND, i was on my feet most of today. another plus, plus!!! i am feeling better. although my weight is up, i've been good about sticking with exercise AND weights and this has helped, tremendously, to counteract side effects of a fast weight gain.

i've also been stretching more often in the morning and night (just a couple fast stretches), to keep my flexibility in my legs which tends to go with weight gain on my thighs. so i'm really trying to keep some of  my form, strength, and flexibility as i lose weight again, but also as i am at a high weight again. weight, weight, weight! lol. long paragraph about weight!

mr. florida, mr. florida. you are in my thoughts and we will probably talk tonight on the phone...short, since i have to study...gar! i have TWO tests tomorrow....

i am feeling good about many things in my life right now. and my weight hasn't gotten me down.  i am working through everything.

exercise: 1 mile walking, 15minbike ride, 10minelliptical, abs


i'm still working at making good no pudge brownies.  i wonder if it's in the cards. so far, NO SUCCESS at all...and yesterday's dinner was a pumpkin brownie yogurt fudge. i didn't even have the last bite. it wasn't good enough to share with all of you!

breakfast: 400, cereal and coffee.

snack: yogurt. 160

lunch: healthy roll w. tofu and avocado...and yogurt and tea. 330

snack: white toast (with fiber) 120, and a whips chocolate yogurt spread on them160. total: 280 :).

dinner: around 550-600

total: 1750. good.

exercise: last night i did weights and did them well! and abs. tonight will be cardio....and i can't wait.

WEll, HOP, funny you should be mentioning "worked over" recipes on your post. My daughter and I have been trying some "Hungry Girl" recipes from hungrygirl.com. There are some good ones. Also there are some techniques you can learn from some of the recipes that you can transfer over to some of your regular recipes. We liked Carrot Cake Muffins and loved the Mac and cheese makeover. The M & C has califlower in if which sounded wierd, but actually is great. I do add a bit of salt & black pepper and some ground red pepper to if and top with just a smidge 1/4 cup?) of Kraft FF cheese and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes to make it seem a bit more traditional. If you try it -hope you like.....

i really should watch calories today. i think i'm doing ok, actually. (don't ask...)

time marches on. i need to pick up this mess and get this weightloss thing into gear.  I had lost weight, down to 131 near the end of september/early october i think. then, last 3 weeks, i've gained back to upper 130s.  :(  sad. but my choices. so i need to make the decision to stay on track and not be on a roller coaster weight sprial.

wow...i just reviewed my past 30 days and I  had 11 binges in 30 days. now that is not so hot. Now i see how i gained this weight! haha. wow.

exercise: probably walking outside.

grumpy on 10/19/2009:
yea, today is still on track. i will go to the store after work and buy some nice fresh produce and make somthing healthy for dinner. yesterday i ate a burger, fries and had ice cream. what the heck?

loveray on 10/19/2009:
i know it is really seeming harder and harder! i find when i just let my mind wander and not constrict myself so much that i dont think about food as often and my need to binge decreases. get out of the house and force yourself to study in a coffee shop or somewhere there are other people and you have accountability:) love to you!
