Weight: 135.0

hey all! i hope you all had a good Monday! boy did it get colder since last week on Friday morning when it was nearly 60 degrees!

my pants are fitting really tightly do to my crazy eating as of late. not to really get down on that though...i did have an interview for another music position on Friday, actually. and, I am most certain that they had someone in mind. when i got there at noon, there was another applicant there and i asked when her interview was. she said it was all the way earlier at 9am! therefore, they already chose to keep her even before my interview began.  it's so hard to think about this and the fact that i drove all the way there for something more like a "courtesy interview," if there ever was such a thing.

i have been a bit more down the usual. perhaps it's the weather.

i did substitute teach today, which i am VERY thankful for.

anyways, time to get ready to walk at the park. it may be around 32 degrees but i need to get out...for the little bit of sunlight left! :-)

goodnight and stay well.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

Sorry to hear about the interview, I hope something better comes along soon. Hope you have a nice walk and stay warm!

Sometimes life sucks. I am glad that you got yourself out for a walk and hope that you feel better doing something physical. I hope that tomorrow is a better day for you.


loveray on 12/06/2010:
that really sucks, lady! good for you for trying your best and giving it a shot. i love you sooo much and know that things will work out for the best. xo

Hey girl!!! I am sensing some positive vibes from you...What gives??? You must tell me! LOL Thanks for the love and support on my page! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!


skinnygrlwithin on 12/14/2010:
Hey thank you for all the advice... I agree with you that no carb and this crash diets are not the way to go at all... I would never want to or for that matter be able to give up carbs completley... I love fruit way too much... my thoughts behind it were I've been eating too many processed carbs as of late and I'm having a litte trouble going back to moderation... so I was thinking if I do the no carb thing along with the beginning of my work out for like 4 days I will be able to get back to eating healthy carbs in moderation again. But I agree with you... I've done some damage to myself with all the yo yo dieting, not eating, crazy fad diets I've done... and I'm too old for that now, and definitely don't have enough time or energy to care that much... my body is good if I eat healthy like 90% of the time and work out a couple times a week... I just need to get back into that... and I always do better with my dieting and working out when I start them together... so that's the plan. Where have you been?? In your last entry you sounded a bit sad??? I hope you're ok...


panda22 on 12/14/2010:
Thanks for the comment =) Yeah I'm due 2 months after Sweetpea lol. Sorry to hear about the interview, that's disappointing. Everything happens for a reason tho, so something better and meant just for you will fall into your path =) Hope you have having a great week!!

(been eating an avg of probably around 6,000 calories each day for three days)- haven't done calculations but have been eating a TON of fast food...and finishing all of it. Checkers fries  and banana shake included! wow are their shakes fantastic!

hey all. i hope you are all holding up! i've had setbacks recently. definitely lots of binging going on. will be getting back on track soon... :-)

 

got an email saying that the job interviews in Albany have begun and that i am not one of the select few that was invited. pretty upset about it.

Sorry things haven't been better. I completely understand your disappointment w/interview process as I've been going through the same thing. Some days are better than others. I hope all improves for you soon! :)


hollybelle on 12/02/2010:
So good to see your posts. Hang tough, girl! You are a smart cookie - your music lesson comments remind me so much of conversations I used to have when my d was in middle and HS - she went to School for Creative and Performing Arts and just being around music and the Arts lifts me up. I know the right position for you will come around. My BIL both work in school system in music and worries about longevity but is hanging in there.

hey all! i'll probably update one more time tonight.

i hope everyone is good. the interview i had on last Wednesday I will not hear much news about, if any, till this Friday. I hope to still score an interview upstate in Albany for the band position.  I am nervous but anxiously anticipate the band position interview.  if i don't have one, i'll switch my excitement over to the position i'm waiting to hear about.

in terms of lessons i teach, my almost 30 private students, i'm doing great with them. I have chosen just about all of their solos that they will be learning this year to perform in March-May.  some of them are so eager and are already impressing me with what they have done. actually, my FAVORITE student, she's doing so well that we will be giving her more challenging solo.

anyways, hope all is well.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

moogy on 11/29/2010:
That's positive thinking HOP, I like that ability to swop targets for your excitement. You must be very proud of your students. Have a wonderful day.


nita51 on 11/30/2010:
Girl Friend, I was so happy to hear from you again. I don't get to post regularly,,,but I'm still a part of our wonderful circle. Sending you positive vibes regarding Albany and your previous interviews. Hugs

I am glad you got to a computer to check in, it is always good to see your posts. Living in a country that doesn't do pumpkin pies, the pumpkin pie shake was a bit of a leap of faith for me, but now I am hopelessly lost in chilly liquid pumpkin pie, plus it is so low in calories, so it is a winner all round.

hello all!

despite a couple (yes, two days, but not in a row) days of setbacks, i'm on the up and up right now!

yesterday I had approximately 4700 Kcal...yes, i am feeling quite bad about it, but i have moved on.  I was able to get a nice 5 mi in yesterday which is good though. and today, i've planned to walk at the park before i teach 8 or so lessons this afternoon and evening. oh, and i plan to use the weights at the gym tonight.

tomorrow i have an interview in the early afternoon, rest of the day i will probably be helping my mom with Thanksgiving prep. Perhaps a walk in the AM....or maybe late PM since i have a feeling i'll be tired Wednesday morning....ah, the life! right!?

i have my fingers crossed still on a job interview in Albany, NY. 3 hours away. i feel really good about the position and i am hoping that i am contacted in the next couple weeks about it. if i am not, i will not get too upset as i have only helped myself anyways by spending time productively and practices a few easy pieces on the clarinet, french horn, and trombone to prepare for the interview if i do get it. (you can't prepare things last minute anyway, so i've spent the past month learning a trombone piece from scratch which was a challenge...and then just reviewing the horn/clarinet pieces.)  i am looking for a band position (if you guys didn't know that already.)

so, hmmm, even though my funds are nonexistant....i am going to japanese/brazilian straighten my hair bc it is sooooo dried out, ruined, etc. from the ample blow drying and ironing i've been doing to it. so the straightening (which i've probably done 4-5 times if not more in the past) really works for me. it makes my hair more managable and then it also alleviates the process of doing it everyday....i spend half if not even less as much time doing it - good thing!!!  my hair is still relatively short and i'm trying, once again, to grow it out, so the straightening should also help it look even straighter, another good thing. AND, last but not least, i have a reunion with an old friend saturday night, and my hair will look good since i'm getting it done friday.....and, last last last, but not least least least!!!, i will start working full time very soon....even if not in music, and it will help me get out the door without worrying too much about the time it takes to do my hair.

here, on Long Island, we spend lots of money on our hair....i must look presentable...anyways...

so that's it.

happy early thanksgiving!

i really love your attitude!!! I hope you get your dream job :) I also had some opportunities along the way, and I had some - what I consider - bad luck, so I think the same, don't get too upset because there are lots of so-called dream jobs out there... You have to show us a photo of your hair! :)


KathyBlue on 11/23/2010:
BTW I spend lots of money on my hair, too... Dang. I want gray hair now! :)

hello again. at the library to use the computer...

thursday was kinda ****tttyyyy in the end - 3200 calories only bc i was teaching EIGHT music lessons that evening, which took me away from anymore senseless eating...but that's done with, :-)

friday was better, not great though, 2500 calories.

today: hmmm, so far - 1500 cal, pretty good, will probably have up to 1900 or 2000 today, making it a good day.

i guess that day that i ate around 1300 calories kinda backfired this past week, causing me too eat more the following days. anyways, no need to obsess, right?!

but my plan remains, to lose weight.  right now, i'm a bit sensitive about my arms. they feel to big/fat. mostly big though. and i know that if i can knock off the pounds, get back in the 120s which remains my goal, i will definitely look MUCH better.  once i break under 130, i always feel a lot leaner, especially bc of all the muscle i have gained from weights and pushups/pullups.  I've been keeping up with pull-ups and the gym and i have noticed i have finally gotten better, and soon i will use less weight to "help me." pull-ups are one of the exercises where the MORE weight you use, the MORE help you are giving yourself. the hardest way to do pullups is when you don't use any added extra weights to push you back up - and you do it all by yourself! one day, ladies, one day!

 what else!? i have some dilemnas coming up - my dad has gotten me for an interview for a job not in the health field or teaching field - just so i can have a full time job. i am not really excited about this, at all. I feel i shouldn't take it, because it will only guarantee me employment now - and not down the road. I feel that by taking the job i will be absolutely running away from everything i ever tried to work for in life. also, if i were to get the job, the hours would make it so that the lessons i teach would interfere and i'd have to get rid of some students/try to move them to other times - which probably wouldn't work out at all since there's no other times or space to teach at the studio.

although i do want a full time job, i feel almost not ready for it - and also i want a job in a field i have trained in. I don't like the idea of getting a job elsewhere, in something that is totally new to me. i do want to prove to myself that i can make a living doing something i have went to school for...be successful in the paths i have chosen.  I am nervous that by doing anything else, that whenever the job ends (like 2 or 4 years from now) i'll be searching, again, for a job.  I kinda want to prevent this - by getting a job in a field that i do have training in, and therefore there is better certainty that i'd be working in the field for years to come. not just a temporary full time job for a company and then looking again.

the interview is supposedly this coming Wednesday, day before Thanksgiving, and located in the city or maybe Queens, NY.  I promised a friend i might spend Wednesday night with here - sorta upstate a little that night. I may not be able to, now.  of course a job interview is more important, it's just i'm not looking foward to it, that's all. probably hard to understand to you outsiders, who may not be up to date with my current situations! haha.  I told her i'd go to happy hour with her, as i've promised for a VERY long time what we'd celebrate then...i will feel a little bad no going...we'll see.

i hope to get called to substitute next week, at least one of the days - hopefully Monday. An extra $100 is nice, isn't it?! but it really isn't extra, i know i'll probably have spent it before it even reaches my bank account!

what else!? it's only 7:08. can you believe it? seems that it really does get dark early these days! i was at the park and it was only 5pm...and so dark! hopefully they will take away daylight savings time in the next few years if we are lucky. i could use some more afternoon/evening light hours.

other than all of this, i need to fix a bike tire so i can bike to get the papers - i haven't biked in at least a couple months...and the weather is still alright for biking! i should do it before it's too late!

alright, enough rambling...

goodnight all.

Lots of people take other jobs while waiting/looking for the one they really want. It depends on your circumstances, if you can afford to hold down part time work while looking for the job you want or if, financially, you need to go full time. Good luck.

what is the job that your dad tried to hook you up with? definitely dont give up on your dream, but being open to all possibilities is always helpful, in my experience. :) xo

doing OK. went off diet of no breads/milk/starchy carbs for the past two days which is totally OK. my body needed to!

haven't been called to sub these past couple days, could have used the money, but was tired anyway from tuesday's "double shift" of work and then 8 lessons. so, in a way, i'm looking foward to a good, sorta lazy/sorta not weekend.

sunday should prove busy, anyways.

have a good one, ladies!

Weight: 135.0

(i may still be more like 137lbs, but i changed it to 135, because this is the direction i  am looking, my goal is remaining to get into the 120's. and with the increase in activities/busy lifestyle substitute teaching, it will be an easier goal to reach no doubt!)

I have been substitute teaching on Monday and Tuesday. I was supposed to go in today, too, but didn't realize my phone was ringing this morning at 7:37am.  I didn't know they even called that late, when the school day starts at 8:20am. I live about 10-20 minutes away, so it could have worked. Now i know, for next time, to always have my phone by my side even if i run downstairs to do laundry in the morning.

In a way, i am glad not to sub today because yesterday i had a full day with 5 year olds (which was enjoyable!) but also had to teach EIGHT music lessons, a half hour each, after school! It was like two full days of work yesterday! I got home around 9:30pm and was totally pooped. My mind was still amped up from the day, but I did no exercise, and couldn't even sleep well. I was constantly waking up, all night. So, if i did have to sub today, i would have definitely been tired. Today, I plan on some cardio, which i probably got in enough walking around yesterday, and the weights which i would rather have done yesterday.

I don't want to let exercise fall by the wayside, and it won't. but, there has already been a reduction in the amount of cardio i do. and like i said, yesterday, and added none into my routine at all. it was the first day without cardio in weeks, actually!

as far as eating yesterday, i was so busy and rushing, and i kept food out of sight on purpose. my calories were probably no more than 1300 which is the lowest they have been in months.

so this morning i was quite hungry, and luckily stuck to my protein/veggie breakfast: one egg and lots of eggwhites, around 150 calories, and this is new just for today - two cucumbers with balsamic vinegrette dressing! yes, you heard right!, and even though i was full, i was craving carbs and had a huge apple. I'm being kind, estimating the total only at 450 calories and boy was everything good.

i am not at my alma mater university, using the computers and checking email. i had a vegan protein bar they sell here, 200 calories.

after staying here, i will probably take a walk around my community, or the park, i haven't really decided - but i know i should get outside for a bit. :-) and weights tonight, at the time that the hottie goes, so that i can gain some energy and motivation off that poor soul! (haha, if he ever knew he was my motivation...!)

I am going to call about a job i was very interested in since i've heard nothing back and it's been about two weeks. they've probably chosen the candidates but i need to check bc i 've been thinking about it nonstop. its a job in NY, about 3 hours away from me. i'd have to relocate...but i would WANT to. it's a tenure track job, one that has the possibility to be mine for a long time. but, like i said, it's far and they may have candidates of their own already in mind. i've applied weeks ago, but the start date is february 1st - a long time from now. it's my favorite grades/subject: beginner and intermediate bands, grades 5 and 6. the PERFECT JOB. so we'll see!

happy eating.

i've been living off of protein bars and coffee w. soymilk/splenda, and monster drinks...and some water thrown in, too. veggies/egg in the AM for breakfast, and usually less healthy things as the day progresses. it's really easy to count calories this way, and i'm fine with it, for now. but that's my side of the "dietdiary" story.

i hope you are all well :-)

loveray on 11/17/2010:
haha, a little poop talk is good for everyone! :) im almost to a full split, but my hamstrings are still a little too tight with all of the walking and strength training i have been doing. the best thing when i was learning is to get into a low-lunge and then prepare yourself with a foam block under your front hamstring...as things start to settle (AKA loosen up) you can turn the block to a lower level...and eventually your leg will be on the floor!! good luck!

hello all!

exercise today: 1 hour and 30 min of moderate/slow walking at the park. it was beautiful for this time of year, nice and relatively "warm." also, i was on my feet all day subbing and couldn't imagine doing anything more strenuous, especially the elliptical, i just couldn't stand in place, more, on that machine at the gym when the weather is just so nice!

i am doing alright. same weight. not really going low carb, but staying away from the dairy and the processed carbs....except for all the different nutrition bars i have been eating...and they contain sugar, believe me! but they are good and that's where i 'm at for now.

always continuing with weights, by the way! i love lifting weights.

i have also been starting substitute teaching...i am thankful to be back in the schools. :-) and giving private lessons!

stay well.

Ooh! celsius has many flavors now! ginger ale is my fave so far, they also have cola,orange both yummy as well...Ones I dont like mango greentea, or raspberry tea Yuccky some things should never exist in a can together, oh i think there is a berry one too..I like celsius because it doesn't give you that jittery nervous feeling like other energy drinks, AND it burns 100 cals by just drinking it and even more if you take before workouts :)

Glad to see you plugging in your diary again.

I like the spiciness of kimchi, too. I've always bought kimchi ready made but last week I went to the korean grocery store near my house armed with my Korean cookbook which my husband received as a gift from the Korean Embassy at one of the functions he attended there. I was able to find an employee (a woman) who spoke English very well and helped me with the ingredients - she recommended me to use the very same ingredients she uses herself and taught me to do it the "correct way" - not the way my hoity-toity recipe. So, I've made a genuine korean kimchi at home!

i miss you!! i know, the bars can be good sometimes...but i get easily addicted and they are definitely not good for eating less processed...the think thin bars are very unprocessed kind of like larabar, but they taste so amazing and have more protein than larabar. only issue is i like the chocolate flavor and it makes me crave real chocolate badly! think i will give those a rest for a little while and see what happens:) sending lots of love and hope you can join us more often!

(count calories/exercise/relaxing thoughts!)
Weight: 137.0

You know, I wonder what is going on with GG these days!!! Are you out there!? How is college? Do you still have the same diet!? what's up girl!

ok....

I am currently eating a VERY carb diet. It's my third day and, yes, i'm having lots of trouble doing it. I keep reminding myself that i'll be OK in the end....i have VERY LITTLE energy...but i feel that this is moreso because i was eating so many carbs beforehand. anyways, it's not a long-term diet, but at least till thanksgiving. I have a wedding to go to in January and I do have a real goal to weigh in the 120's by then! right now, i'm at 137.

I also feel like death because i took a friend's challenging Yoga class, not hot yoga, Dahn yoga i think, and i took it after i had started this very low carb diet...and my body didn't get carbs after the strenuous workout - including lots of squats and lunges which i am not accustomed to doing - so i am VERY, VERY sore! Not a bad thing, but it's hard to discern between sore and tired....and sore and lethargic! it's hard to tell if it's the diet or the soreness!

otherwise, i'm good.

I'm trying for more veggies. and although it's low carb, i've been eating a tremendous amount of calories per day, so far always above 2000.  I figure i will tackle that soon too, trying to lower calories. but right now, i'm focussing on veggies, less carbs, and proteins - which i'm having more of - even if that includes Salami! haha.

stay well, everyone!

ps- the computer is still broken so i am on here far less often lately! as you can see!

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!
