(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 124.0

Slept pretty well all week, but not last night. I went to bed around midnight and then woke up at 4am...i had a little caffeine but i think it's just the fact that i haven't been doing much besides exercise and work and my brain wanted to be stimulated not sleeping!

snack: drink:60

breakfast: fiber one and almond milk: 250, protein bar 200: 450, milk 50: 500.

snack: bar

2200. good.

exercise: walking.

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

I am telling you....the key to weightloss is SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!! what a difference it makes, feeling so good right now (still a little tired, but so much better!)  It feels good to not be totally exhausted as the week progresses.

weight steady at 124 lbs....now to get lower...9 more pounds till a major goal for me...115.  It may take much longer than i want it to, but i will get there.  When I turn 30 on 9/9 I'd like to weigh around this amount, but I do realize 9 lbs is actually a lot, and it can take longer.  I have FIVE weeks. So, the goal does remain to get into the teens. 115-119.  Basically, my method of reaching my goal is to remain pretty active on the weekends.  I have begun to do leg weights/lower body weights at the gym which will also help in burning more calories and strengthening those muscles.  I am on my way to reaching my goal. In terms of calories, I am NOT reducing, just not bingeing.  Reducing calories doesn't work for me bc it backfires or I just don't have enough energy. I'm trying to make my body a calorie burning machine, not a calorie saving machine. I like to eat & want to be able to eat what I want to, therefore, I'm trying to keep exercise high (especially on weekends) and GET SLEEP. this is helping. I've been sleeping more this week, and I feel a lot better!

breakfast: big plum 60, greek yogurts 200, flax 60, pita bread 150, ginger tea, water: 470. great.

snack: bar, water...

lunch: chicken/spinach in a pita, banana

dinner: chicken in pita, plum? healthy. and sauteed spinach from boss, yup 650

snack:bar 150

2200, great. 2500 - had LOTS of fruit, couldn't sleep because i think i was hungry and not enough carbs after exercise...

exercise: biking some leg weights at gym (just getting into legs, so i just do 3 exercises at the moment and that's enough - like 4-6 sets at each machine...)

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

You are so right about the sleep, it makes a major difference in how efficient your body operates. Your plan for losing is a good one!


V on 08/02/2012:
I really love your thoughts about sleep and eating..Although I never had binging issues, just the same I am not one to deprive myself of food.I have a healthy intake of fuel daily and satisfied and occasionally have things I normally wouldn't and never feel guilty, hell as much work as I put in most of it is burned as soon a I ingest it.. Anyhoo I totally agree with everything you said <3 Hope you had a good day!

Weight: 124.0

....well, still really, really bloated...

breakfast: yogurts with flax seeds, banana, pita bread: 550.

snack: ...sticking with a bar: 200

lunch: not sure...maybe chicken sandwich...yup. with spinach cooked also in it. 600

bloating has subsided quite a bit...due to eating better, or rather, less fibrous foods and more bulking foods like a banana at breakfast and again at lunch! and chips after work. doing better now....

6pm dinner: chips, plum, red pepper: 350  before gym

after gym 9pm:shake, around 200.

total:  around 2000, great!

exercise: full upper body workout, cardio for almost one hour. good stuff.
