OMG, last day of August. I seriously can't even believe it! My 28th birthday is in 9 days, can't believe that, either. Is there no way to take some years off so I can go back to being 21? If I had a choice, I'd go back to that age right now! 

....back to reality though. i don't have the choice to go back to being 21. So i have to make do with what I do have.

Friend begged me to go to the beach with her for a few hours today. I said YES. I figured today would be hard after yesterday's binging. that i did lots of job applications yesterday....so i will get some sun today. maybe read my book there...but that's kinda unsocial so i usually don't.

breakfast: large apple 160

brunch: small sandwich

late lunch: small sandwich

snack:chicken on a salad w. light dressing: around 300

snack before gym for one hour of elliptical: 250

heavy dinner: biscuit and egg white, glass of milk, bran crackers, plum: 550 or so.

1700, overall, good.

cardio at gym in the evening, plan is for an hour of elliptical (with a break of two when i get off, stretch, even sit down a moment)

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

I Agree... I'm 29 and PETRIFIED of turning 30... At least weekly I lust for college, when I was an undergrad and didn't have a care in the world:) But your right, we can't go back so we must make the best of the present and the future!


just42day on 08/31/2010:
Don't regret turning 28. Enjoy it and realize how much more you know now vs. college years when we thought we knew everything.... Age is what you make it and I'm sure you can make great!


moogy on 08/31/2010:
I am glad to see you are planning to be back on track today HOP. That's great and a day a the beach may be a refreshing opportunity to have some fun. Have a wonderful day. I wouldn't go back to being younger for anything, I have learned to much over the years to give it up for youth. There are advantages to getting older, patience, knowledge, knowing who and what you are, wonderful things all in front of you. Have a wonderful day.


CoverGirl on 08/31/2010:
Hey, I just turned 31 :( I feel soooo ancient and wish I could go back to being you and 21 again


V on 08/31/2010:
Good job today HOP!!! How was the beach? BTW 30's have been really really good to me don't be scared, great things are in store :)

Umpqua on 08/30/2010:
I hope the afternoon goes better for you!


moogy on 08/30/2010:
OK, today is not a good day. Don't beat yourself up HOP, you had five (at least) good day's in a row. Just pick yourself up in the morning, make a plan and start again. Remember that you haven't failed until you stop trying. It is the striving to be better that counts. Much love to you.


V on 08/30/2010:
HOP I thought about you alot while I was away, I made sure to read your entries although sometimes not having the chance to reply or respond. You have been doing great lately and may I ask if it is at all possible to pick one "binge" item to keep in the house and the rest don't bring inside your house? I know it is still easy to go out to get them if you still wanted to but I think it would still help...I personally think that 138 lbs is healthy and you really are a healthy eater but until you clear your house of temptations you are sabotaging all of your hard work and efforts. We all want you to succeed my friend :)


V on 08/30/2010:
P.S. Shake it off, tomorrow is a new day :)

Good Morning Gals! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying weather like I have, on the East Coast. So beautiful and not a cloud in the sky all weekend. A major change from last weekends full washout!

Snack: tofu on thick slice of bread: 250

Snack: Medium iced coffee w. skim milk and 2 equal 100

Lunch: egg on biscuit w. bran added in 320 or turkey sausage eggwhite flatbread.

Dinner: 2 servings tofu on 2 slices whole grain bread, red pepper 480

Snack: greek yogurt w. chocolate mix added in, so good! 180, oatmeal flakes on top 40, big apple 140: 360.

total: 1860 = good day.

My legs feel like jello as of late. Lots of exercise, but not overboard by any means...but apparently too much for me...bc i can't seem to get back to feeling strong in my lower body. anyway, off for a morning walk at the park!

also exercise by a nice walk at the beach...followed up by a walk at the park soon.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 08/29/2010:

Moody3 on 08/29/2010:
Tofu on bread? What's that like? LOL

Sounds like we are enjoying the same beautiful weather!! Hope you enjoy your walk at the park!!


just42day on 08/29/2010:
Hope you enjoyed the great weather during your walk.


moogy on 08/29/2010:
Yes, I am on the eat coast and there wasn't a cloud in the sky her either!!!! LOL Must be a coincidence - there must be a point in time during your Autumn and my Spring when everyone is happy with the weather!! Enjoy it why you can and be careful not to overdo the walking, we want you in one piece.


moogy on 08/29/2010:
I just buy a can of chickpeas (400g - so that's 1 pound),1 grated carrot, 2/3 cup wholegrain breadcrumbs with herbs, 2 eggs, beaten, pinch of chilli powder, salt and pepper. Mash chickpeas and combine with everything else and form into round patties (like hamburgers only thicker). I fry them in a little olive oil.


moogy on 08/29/2010:
I just saw I had misspelled east coast, really I do live on the east coat of Australia but the eat coast sounds much more fun!!!!LOL


V on 08/30/2010:
Great job on getting out of the 140's!!!! I am almost back from vaca so I will have time to read more as well as post ;)

I haven't binged since Monday. Feeling good about that and I am trying really hard right now. Even if my totals are over 2200, it's better than when I binge and REALLY, REALLY overeat. So, this is progress. A little at a time. I know that the weight will start to drop if I continue to make this progress. :-)

Today is almost the end of August. I hope to make real progress by the end of September. In a month, perhaps 8-10 lbs tops would be good. But, I will be happy with any progress, really. So, I will try not to rush things. I will not restrict at all. Just try to prevent any binging.

Good Morning. I woke up close to 9am, nice and late :-) I indulged in a big breakfast.  Gonna go for a little bike ride to the bank, then shower, go visit my grandma for some of the morning and lunch, then go to the gym in the evening. It will be a great day! Tomorrow I'll be going with my friend to the beach.

Breakfast: grapes 100, greek 2% yogurt 130, oatmeal 150, almond milk 40, blue chips 150, cocoa powder mix that i added to the oatmeal 50: 620, good!

snack: plums: 180

lunch: egg sandwich w. bran...

1700...

dinner: microwave meal 350, pretzels 160, salad 50, red pepper 40, green beans and almonds 160: 760...alright, a bit over. but still, NOT a binge :-)

2460, good.

exercise: some walking, some biking, over an hour of weights, back, pushups, abs. a great day.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 08/28/2010:
Great plans so far! :)


Donkey on 08/28/2010:
A bike ride sounds like a great idea! I might have to do the same thing :-)


Moody3 on 08/28/2010:
Sounds like a great day is planned!! Enjoy!


moogy on 08/28/2010:
I love to hear that you are planning a great day. I am already on my Sunday. Have another good day HOP:)


just42day on 08/28/2010:
Congrats on no bingeing. I know how great that is to be able to say that. Great job! Keep going. It's accomplishments like that that will enable you to meet your goal!
