off to drive to a party soon, it's 2 hours away. can't wait to come back home & take a nice, long walk....or maybe I need weights??? really thinking to lift weights tonight & Monday night.

hopefully not more than 2200. not sure.  all healthy though.

lots of driving today, 5 hours in the car because of the traffic on the way there.  so glad to be home!!!! I was starving, so quickly ate dinner, then walked from 7:15-8pm to get some exercise in.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

so I was up at 4am. makes sense. I even went outside & took a half hour walk. eating is now a little screwy, up too many hours for sure....at least my digestion is mostly back to normal after a bit too much stress I finally used the bathroom after that walk..tmi, I know.  I haven't slept well all week due to too many hours at work & not enough downtime before bed.

I can't just put off my weight routine till tomorrow---the plan was for tonight & I can't just use an excuse. no more caffeine, I will have to get through the workout on motivation & desire alone tonight.

1200 so far, good...planning on weights tonight should be a great workout!

2200 at most, all healthy.

good weights workout.

That was a long time to be sitting at a computer all day yesterday. Hey not sure if this would work for you or not, but have you considered a "standing desk?" My hubby got one at his job and loves it. It's very easily adjustable so you can sit when wanted/needed or stand. He's had a lot less back aches and has more energy on days he stands more. With the amount you work I would think your boss would get you one (maybe you could get your physical therapist to make a formal suggestion ;)...I hope today is better for you!


skinnygrlwithin on 10/10/2013:
I completely agree on the standing desk... my boyfriend has been doing this for years as well and loves it. Instead of a chair when he does sit down he uses one of those workout balls for your abs.

tonight will be weights, no matter what. will leave work at 5pm too, no matter what.

breakfast: banana & pb 200, later a roll 100 with 2 whole eggs 150, 2 egg whites 50 and smart balance spread 50 350= 550 perfect

snack: bar....

UPDATE: GREAT EATING. much healthier than my usual.

I didn't leave work early at all, but got to the gym & did a VERY HARDCORE workout, one of my best. Being at work so late motivated me more than you can imagine. it was probably my best workout in over a month.

6am too early breakfast: big peach 100, fiber one and almond milk 210, bar around 200: total around 500. fine.

9am snack: big peach 100

12pm lunch: at most, 600. good!

2pm snack: greek yogurt with apple butter spread & cinnamon mixed in (home, doing laundry, a nice, slow, day & loving it.) 150 approx.

5pm snack: very small kids size soft serve ice cream & wow it was goooood..counting it at 150

 probably around 2300.

overall an ok day, had to do a bit more driving than planned, and it annoyed me. but now I can relax, all night, at home & read. :-D

legs are feeling a lot better. I walked 2.5 mi at the park & could have done more, but started to get hungry....and knew I had to get to my parent's house to pick up important paperwork...then, came home & walked one more mile & even maybe a mile & a half. so, at least around 4 miles today. it doesn't seem like much, but it is. my legs are doing better...far less pain. I am gonna get into the police academy, I am going to make it work. next weekend or the weekend after, I will return the rest of my bars that contain sugar alcohols. I am working on my diet, making it better.

wow.....posted my exercise & calories on yesterday's post. busy day today.

total cal: 2300 approx.

hour walk.

I bought a lot of bars containing artificial sugars. of course I will eat them...debating returning them....but man they are good. they contain truvia type artificial sweeteners.  I am not drinking anything artificial though. no diet drinks or coffees.
