Thankfully I didn't overeat past 2250 last night :)  The sleeping pills that I took are a little strange. They don't get me to fall asleep, just make me more tired than usual.  but they did keep me asleep once I actually went to bed (which was like 3 or more hours after I took them).  I wanted to sleep really late, but slept till close to 7.  I think I went to bed around 9 or 10? lol, yes, I did forget what time I went to bed...since I skipped out on my Friday evening physical therapy workout and came straight home from work instead.  So as for the times, I forget up until when I was eating or even awake last night.

It has definitely been a frustrating couple weeks.  Work as been busy, especially with my coworker on vacation.  I am not getting a lot of sleep because of it (get out late from work, then gym late..then late to bed)...and even worse, I got a sore throat that's getting much better since Thursday afternoon .  Now I noticed that my face (which has been clear for around 3 weeks) is breaking out due to everything going on. sucks!  I do not like to skimp on sleep since I feel it's something I should be able to control....gonna be working on this, because I am not planning to get sick this fall and winter!  Now sure about you, but I know for a fact that when I get better sleep, I feel better, look better, and just about everything is better.

Breakfast: fruit 100, oatmeal with egg whites 220, 2 tablespoons coconut butter 200, stevia, yogurt 100 620...followed by a protein bar 260: 880, fine! drink 40. 920

snacking: roasted veggies around 150? maybe more...chips 140, granola bar 140: 430...wrap with peanut butter, coconut butter and 2 jellies 300

1650.

..took a nap after this from around 12-1pm?....my body is just so tired!!!...planning on sleeping pills tonight so I can go to bed on the very early side.

2pm snacking: small plum, and some Mexican flavored quinoa that I probably bought a whole two weeks ago, in a pretty sealed package sitting in my fridge. it was good. 200 or so.

1850, good. Total was 2250, got sick off one of the sleeping pills I took. It was a jell cap and I had partially opened it before swallowing so the liquid mixed badly with the food I are and I ended up getting sick last night in the bathroom around 11pm.

But I still got a lot of sleep, probably around 9:30 till 7am with just the bathroom vomit session at 11pm luckily it ended fast. Sorry for the tmi.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

Managed to get a sore throat Thursday and now have to make sure everything gets better over the weekend. That's what partying and less sleep does to you. Next time I take a day off work when I need to.

thru lunch: lower cals, around 950 :)

drive home: around 200

dinner: huge salad with lots of roasted veggies and tofu: 350 or so. and some chips 200...and a protein bar..100 750

so far: 1900...good..no exercise today, worked thru lunch and didn't walk outside, took tonight off from PT

final total calories for fri is 2250...I had a hard time stopping but finally did since I was tired from a sleeping pill....it got me just tired enough to want to go to bed.  I will probably take a pill Saturday night and Sunday night as well....trying to get more sleep.

Around 1250 after lunch...

Healthy eating all day :)

Healthy dinner: 500 tops :) well 550

1800 all very healthy including roasted potatoes and veggies and grilled chicken and salad and celery just very good and a peach.

Taking a break from the low calories bc my body is telling me that it wants one :)

Maybe just a carbonated kombucha drink for a snack tonight or maybe nothing at all...

Around 2100.

At least I got sleep on Wednesday night into Thursday. Hoping Thursday is a better day and lower calories :)

Fruit 250 Thru morning 750 Lunch around 550 1300 :) legs are painful.

boss doesn't understand or get it....that my legs hurt and that I don't want to work any overtime right now. oh well.

total calories around 2250.

I've been craving sugar and energy. had 1/2 banana at breakfast, full banana (small) at lunch, and a large banana during my workout. in addition, I had a coconut water at the gym.

trying everything to feel better, especially leg-wise. 

I didn't "overdo" the bananas just to feel better, I was actually craving them....

...hardly any walking, but I did do a full weights and abs routine at the gym tonight despite the pain. it's hard to not do a weights routine when I actually skipped one last week as well.

Awe, sorry your legs aren't doing too well right now. Are you doing a lot of icing and stretching?

Breakfast banana 120, lemon water 30, supplement drink 20 so around 170; later chicken on wrap with coconut butter 300 or so around 500 here will have coffee at work! Snack: bar and coffee around 200 if I have the small bar. Lunch burrito made with low carb wrap , chicken fried rice leftovers around 450 - 500 and celery sticks 50. Same for dinner. Dinner: was healthy, stopped at the supermarket on my way to pt and ate a really nice healthy dinner. Around 400 of some sautéed veggies, little bit of roasted potatoes so good for me, celery sticks that I had brought to work, seltzer that my boss gave me. 1600 so far...less walking at lunch but finally full pt for my legs. Snack: not sure.

1800 calories today :)

maybe I burned 200 extra, maybe not. walking wasn't much.  I wonder if I truly burned 2000 calories. at least I did my PT. probably I did burn it, as I wasn't truly only sedentary.

so....200 cal burned today :)

Went to bed around 11pm and woke up before my alarm clock.  I guess my body just wants to relax before the big day today.  I was up at 6am.  Hopefully i'll be able to get sleep tonight before Monday but if not, oh well!

Weird breakfast: lots of sautéed veggies & leftovers, two small plums, then oatmeal and yogurt. 550 or so (could be more, but this is what I'm counting it as).

 

Around 2000-2200 great. No planned exercise, some walking but really not much.

Up early for dermatologist appt. last time at this dr bc they are 45 min away. Appt is at 8:15am. Then laundry later this AM, food shopping at some point, massage back on Long Island at 2pm, gym tonight. Tomorrow is a friend's bday out 2.5 hrs away out on Long Island and everything needs to be done before Tomorrow since next week I will be working and no days off. I wanted to take off but my boss made it pretty clear he would disapprove since my coworker is out next week already.

Tomorrow is tough since I may get home late Sunday night which would really piss me off before work Monday morning. I will be trying to get home at a reasonable hour Sunday, like 9pm or earlier (preferably 8pm) It's not that I don't wanna go to the party out on Long Island, I do!!! But I also would have liked a little more relaxation / alone time at home this weekend or a day off next week. Too much driving & rushing around on Saturday & Sunday. (but it is better than having no plans...)

Breakfast: fruit 100, yogurt 100, coconut butter 100, oatmeal 160, egg whites 100: around 550 nice! Snack iced coffee 650 Early lunch: tons of veggies roasted around 350, wrap 300 1300, good.

Crappy snack: frozen yogurt some being lower sugar with some mango and berries on top. 250 at most probably. 1550 but I guess tired and unsatisfied....time for gym I think!

More before gym: stopped at home, had a plum around 50 & protein bar 170. 220....will say 200.

total so far: 1750. eh.

gym banana 120, after gym small bar 130.

2000, perfect.

Happy Friday.

early snack: 50 cal of lemon water, the lemon, a liquid vitamin, and some cranberry supplement for uti since I just got over it.

....catch up later with everyone!

1450 till end of workday. Then dinner 1800 or so. All healthy but the salmon was in my fridge cooked since Sunday and I think it gave me diarrhea lol both times I ate it in a wrap on Friday lol u would think I would learn :)

around 2250. decent for sure. hard week. starting to feel very bingy at work as lack of sleep was starting to add up this week. glad tomorrow is the weekend & gonna try to make the best of it!

legs are well under par right now and feel quite bad. it's because of Wednesday. I have been eating better and trying to get more potassium in. I am trying to do better and it's sorta working.  My plan is to get legs healing more and quicker after activities like Wednesday. I think if I do what legcramps does, more stretching, it should do the trick.

this desk job is killing me.

Around 2000 on Wednesday and a lot of walking but less stairs than expected bc a coworker was afraid of heights so we ended up taking the temp elevators. My legs were more sore and inflamed glad I got to bed at a somewhat normal time.

Thursday calories: 1350 till end of work, after work healthy dinner around 500, small banana at gym and small protein bar 250. Total Thursday: 2100, nice. :) I did good this week.

burned approx. 300 cals this week = major success, considering :)
