oh, and dessert, we shared tiramisu :-)  he had a cappuccino and i some coffee. wonderful night.

I went out with the kindest, most sincere guy I have ever met this weekend. I've known him a little for several years, although this was only the third time we've met up in person.  He was very generous, so enjoyable to be around.  Dinner was extremely tasty.  haha, we both had a nice glass of beer after a little walk to dinner, well, actually it ended up being like a half hour in the heat haha, so we were thirsty and we both got a little buzz from the beer. Dinner was so good, like I said.  I had a very large serving of St.Peter's Fish, it's a type of white fish prepared with bread crumbs, also had really delicately sauteed, in butter, broccoli and potatoes. I just had a little of dinner, he had some of my huge portion of fish. His dinner was also very, very well prepared: a combination of eggplant parm/but also chicken inside. I forget what the Italians call his dish.

Anyways, we went to dinner late and decided not to drink anything further. We were going to see a movie, but it was already a little after 11. We came back to my place and watched TV/movie for actually awhile! Nothing was rushed. This guy is seriously the nicest guy out there.   The rest of the evening, after 12 or so, we spent having a grand old time upstairs...haha. We went to sleep around 3.  It was a fun, exciting weekend.  He took a shower, as I offered, and he even folded up his towel, threw out the garbage, and offered to make the bed, which i turned down, saying i'd take care of it when he left.

He texted me on Sunday, thanking me for a good night....and asking how my day at the beach was. He even texted me again today, asking how my day off was. :-) Nice guy.

breakfast: egg white 20, cereal and milk 250, yogurt 100, some leftovers 150: 520 good.

I bought an abdominal exercise device called SLENDERTONE. I'm happy to report that over the 3 weeks or so that i've been using it, i've noticed changes, good ones, and that my abs are more toned. I use it almost every night, usually when sitting at my computer. It sends electrical pulses to your abs. If any of you are interested in firming your abs and you've had it with doing ab work, lol, use it. A little bit pricey, but worth it in the long run.  I'm gonna keep updating you all in a month or so.

 

weight a little up this AM, but I did have a lot of volume with my food for dinner. but i do have to be careful. calories have been higher lately.

Remember the guy I went out with last Friday night? We are hanging out tonight again. I am house-sitting, as well. This is gonna be a crazy night!   :-)

breakfast: strawberries, frozen kefir. 250.

snacks: 350

large lunch, but for some reason i was  VERY VERY hungry, it was strange: around 850 cal, could be more, but i'm not thinking about that...

(1500)

snack: 100 cal pringles pack and 1/2 greek yogurt, diet snapple. 150

tsf: 1650 = very good.

must clean bathroom and get nails done...

Sorry to hear about your sleep problems- that's no fun. You've probably already thought about this- are you drinking anything with caffeine or chocolate in the afternoon or evening?


Em17 on 07/29/2011:
I hate not being able to sleep too =(. Have a greta weekend =)

Sorry to hear about your accident, glad you are OK! It sounds like you're doing well during a stressful time.

Sorry about the accident :(

dang. my weight is still up by one pound....i'm doing good, and i hope it's lost by the end of the week!!!

breakfast: yogurts and heathier, some fiber, chips. for me,having chips, especially if a healthier variety, is like having bread or any other whole grain. and some more yogurt. total: 400. good.

got into the smallest of car accidents today with a truck.  yes, a truck.  all is good, except part of my car, it's not really that much damage, but will be very expensive. i admit it here, i was sorta at fault here. i was driving too close to the truck, which was turning, and as he turned, he skimmed my car. i admit i was driving sorta recklessly.

calories before car issue: 1,000

calories after: greek yogurt/jello: 250, some cucumber salad 50, lightly sauteed veggies from my cooking on Sunday 100, and, lastly, ice cream 360: total: 760. too much, yes, but overall calories today are fine.

1760.

exercise: none, because i had to wait, with the truck driver, 2 and a half hours for the cops to arrive.  down in the same, slightly dangerous neighborhood, there was a bank robbery and all the cops in the area were over there. we waited 2.5 hours for the cops in order to have the accident report written. it was a long afternoon.  that's what happens when you have an accident, anyways...
