I left work on time & did the whole weights routine.  I also had a lovely walk at lunch.

I hate when I doing something like that! Sardines are good for you, anyway. :)

Good Morning. Kinda weird eating, but, approx. 750 cal around 9am. decent.

plans are to do a few returns of some bars that have sugar alcohols (even though l like them..), massage, meet my friend to walk around the mall, dinner with her, home (hopefully on the very early side so I can relax before the rest of the week) we have today off.

lunch will be 1 egg, 2gg whites on bread with spread, broccoli raab., maybe tea.

probably around 2200 today. all healthy.

I have a goal. To stay healthy, no artificial sugars...as I have been doing....but, I want to lose 5 lbs approx., or however many I can by eating pretty normally, just not excessively.

the plan is to keep increasing cardio, eat even better, and lose a few lbs before a Christmas party that I will probably unfortunately have to attend for work. LOL

It was a good day off, lots of walking. My legs ended up hurting at the end of it. :-(  all else was good.

woke up at midnight from loud neighbors.  1am ate bc I got hungry but I think it was also a mental thing...

1am: strawberries 50, followed by 3 tablespoons peanut butter 300 on a piece of bread 100: 450. not the best.

wow, the eye patch I bought so that I don't wake up from the sunlight worked PERFECTLY! will definitely use again tomorrow & maybe even right now for a nap :)

light breakfast 9am: pineapple, 50, yogurt with pumpkin butter & strawberry jelly 150: 200, very good.

650.

11am, big early lunch, but healthy ingredients: sautéed veggies 350 at least, 2 eggwhites, one egg 120, on two slices whole wheat potato bread 160, with spread 40, big peach 100: around 800, would rather say 750 lol....

1400 or so. at least it's pretty darn healthy. tired, may take a nap....ended up taking an hour and a half nap...so easy with the eye patch! what a great buy...

then, went for a 2-hour leisurely stroll around a the nearby Queens College campus, it is only a ten minute walk from me!  Was nice, since it was the first time I had a change to explore it.

4:30pm then came home, feeling quite hungry and still tired lol...so had pineapple, followed by greek yogurt, banana, and peanut butter: all together it was 300 cal, great!

1700 so far, awesome....getting motivated to lift weights soon!

around 2300 total, good.

Breakfast: fruit 150, 'palak' spread 100?, okra with tofu and spices/some oil 230.

snack: bar: 160

total so far: approx. 650, good.

off to drive to a party soon, it's 2 hours away. can't wait to come back home & take a nice, long walk....or maybe I need weights??? really thinking to lift weights tonight & Monday night.

hopefully not more than 2200. not sure.  all healthy though.

lots of driving today, 5 hours in the car because of the traffic on the way there.  so glad to be home!!!! I was starving, so quickly ate dinner, then walked from 7:15-8pm to get some exercise in.

so I was up at 4am. makes sense. I even went outside & took a half hour walk. eating is now a little screwy, up too many hours for sure....at least my digestion is mostly back to normal after a bit too much stress I finally used the bathroom after that walk..tmi, I know.  I haven't slept well all week due to too many hours at work & not enough downtime before bed.

I can't just put off my weight routine till tomorrow---the plan was for tonight & I can't just use an excuse. no more caffeine, I will have to get through the workout on motivation & desire alone tonight.

1200 so far, good...planning on weights tonight should be a great workout!

2200 at most, all healthy.

good weights workout.

Umpqua on 10/10/2013:
That was a long time to be sitting at a computer all day yesterday. Hey not sure if this would work for you or not, but have you considered a "standing desk?" My hubby got one at his job and loves it. It's very easily adjustable so you can sit when wanted/needed or stand. He's had a lot less back aches and has more energy on days he stands more. With the amount you work I would think your boss would get you one (maybe you could get your physical therapist to make a formal suggestion ;)...I hope today is better for you!


skinnygrlwithin on 10/10/2013:
I completely agree on the standing desk... my boyfriend has been doing this for years as well and loves it. Instead of a chair when he does sit down he uses one of those workout balls for your abs.

tonight will be weights, no matter what. will leave work at 5pm too, no matter what.

breakfast: banana & pb 200, later a roll 100 with 2 whole eggs 150, 2 egg whites 50 and smart balance spread 50 350= 550 perfect

snack: bar....

UPDATE: GREAT EATING. much healthier than my usual.

I didn't leave work early at all, but got to the gym & did a VERY HARDCORE workout, one of my best. Being at work so late motivated me more than you can imagine. it was probably my best workout in over a month.

You have to remember to put yourself above work... so yes... get out at 5 and accomplish something for yoU!

6am too early breakfast: big peach 100, fiber one and almond milk 210, bar around 200: total around 500. fine.

9am snack: big peach 100

12pm lunch: at most, 600. good!

2pm snack: greek yogurt with apple butter spread & cinnamon mixed in (home, doing laundry, a nice, slow, day & loving it.) 150 approx.

5pm snack: very small kids size soft serve ice cream & wow it was goooood..counting it at 150

 probably around 2300.

overall an ok day, had to do a bit more driving than planned, and it annoyed me. but now I can relax, all night, at home & read. :-D

legs are feeling a lot better. I walked 2.5 mi at the park & could have done more, but started to get hungry....and knew I had to get to my parent's house to pick up important paperwork...then, came home & walked one more mile & even maybe a mile & a half. so, at least around 4 miles today. it doesn't seem like much, but it is. my legs are doing better...far less pain. I am gonna get into the police academy, I am going to make it work. next weekend or the weekend after, I will return the rest of my bars that contain sugar alcohols. I am working on my diet, making it better.
