Weight: 115.0

1750 2-day avg = excellent.

Morning all...off to a special scholarship breakfast at the Union.  It's a big event where i think 2-3 high school seniors are awarded partial scholarships based on their applications they sent to the scholarship committee. Good food there. bagels. I do plan to enjoy one. There's also LOX! yum! I see myself having some tasty stuff!

Breakfast begins at 9:30am and i must leave soon! (maybe i should hop in the shower!)

At home: selzter with stevia and a banana 150. 

breakfast: 750

afternoon snack: small apple 50...

950.

huge dinner, balanced but big potions: potato 150-200, veggie pork dish 250?, tons of cooked veggies 200, cucumber salad 150. dessert 200 1000.

1950 today, fine :)

 

 

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Saturday morning 9am Breakfast: banana 160, low cal ice cream 240. 400. good.

 1:30pm vegan lunch of leftovers / veggies i picked up yesterday from southern / carribbean / Trinidad restaurants! = kale / onion mix, eggplant mix, okra mix total here around 400 cal, followed by a couple large fried plaintain pieces 150, and some sauteed pumpkin mix 100? total is higher because i ate a large volume of everything. total around 650-700.

1050 so far. decent. will be working to lower calories, but being kind to myself right now. tomorrow i have a breakfast to attend, also high calorie...but will have food in my place to help me along & going to bed early tomorrow night. trying to rest up before a long week / weekend to come next weekend! 

Life is busy now & exciting. Happy about it. But finding balance isn't as easy as it was - which is fine. but life for me lately is either very busy or not busy at all.

before gym fiber 1 bar and sf energy drink 100

1150, very tired, but going to gym!

late dinner after gym around 8:00-9pm: jello 30, protein muffin with extra cocoa pwdr added in and stevia 250 tops, small banana 120: 400 or so.

1550 = excellent cals, done good!

Plan is to do well this week, I feel back on track :)

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

trishpiglet3 on 10/29/2016:
Yay low cal ice cream for breakfast is a great idea :)

Good luck with finding your balance. Is something I've been thinking about for further in the future - I know overeating and I know being very careful but the balance thing? I don't envy people who are underweight but I sometimes envy people whose weight stays the same and they stay happy with it (regardless of what that weight is) - ditto activity levels, being involved in things etc.

Sounds like you have some awesome restaurants near you :)

More power to you, lovely person xx

2150-7 day avg. sorta high...but...overall a successful week with the trip and work. 

I was asleep in bed before 8pm last night, waking up after 8 today...around 11 hours sleep, not 12....needed it. I had taken a sleeping pill around 6-7 which helped me...and i slept thru the night, not waking up even 1x.

________________________________________________________

probiotic soda 30. worked well on top of additional probiotics last night...

small banana 120, wrap with cc and tons of extra lox 350...470

700 before a LIGHT lunch of the rest of the veggies i bought on my day off on Tuesday...

150 cal granola bar.

850-900....skipping lunch.

tons veggies binge: at least 400-500

Good luck with that co-worker! I know some can be trying.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/27/2016:
yeah it's B*llsh*t! I can't take it ....He gives me the biggest attitude even after i get back from a "short" vacation. He thinks everyone should struggle the same? not a friend, that's for sure. It seems he wishes me hardships...

OVERALL, MY TEXAS TRIP WAS A TRIP OF A LIFETIME! I WILL WRITE MORE ANOTHER TIME, MAYBE, BUT NOW IT'S...BACK TO WORK! SO THANKFUL FOR AN AMAZING TRIP WITH COOL GALS.

reason i'm not writing about the trip is because i have too much going on right now, the trip was great...but i have to get on with my life here & work & dreams here. Lots of wonderful memories, but NO TIME to write about it...and i already did on facebook while posting pics. I'm so done writing about the trip as it feels a chore right now with everything else i'm doing!  

I'm happy...and def back to the real world over here :)  Trip was WELL WORTH IT!

_________________________________________________________________________

I didn't make it to the gym yesterday & I will not be going today.  I have to organize my apt a little bit more tonight bc i have a cleaning lady coming tomorrow while I am at work.  Also tomorrow I will be going back to the gym. I took a total of 9 or so days off. Good.  I will be ready for gym tomorrow after work, for sure.

I called the pharmacy & will pick up Rx on either wednesday or thursday after work or gym. Today was supposed to be the last day they would hold my rx for me!

But I still got a ton of stuff done today. super proud of myself! 

Today i picked up the new laundry cards from the housing office as we are using a new company & i needed to get the cards in order to do my laundry!  I did a ton of laundry, paid some bills, wrote out the notary application since i did pass the test!!!! yay!!!, dropped off all bills and also two postcards at the post office, picked up some seltzers and food at a small specialty market and also stopped by the drugstore, was at bank to get stuff notarized....i think this is it?...oh, picked up already cooked food at another store...i think this is it. took from about 2pm-5pm to get everything done outside my apartment.

choosing sleep over the gym today. i am partially run-down - so it's good to sleep.
