Friday was ok. At work I was just in a bad mood all day particularly bc my right wrist was bothering me from all the computer work. My plan is to stay away from it all weekend. I love the computer but cannot afford for my wrist to get much worse. Will be buying a better ergonomic mouse bc right now it's the right wrist particularly from using the mouse.

Calories were around 1850-1900. I was very overtired today.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Wednesday: 1900 cal or so.  Healthy.  exercise was legs at gym near work & also physical therapy.  no cardio. 

I was able to make an appointment with a specialist orthopedic surgeon at NYU Medical Center in NYC for Monday!  I will see him, show him my past MRI results & I also hope to get the test / set up an appointment for the compression test for Chronic Compartment Syndrome.  I am excited about this appointment and also I know that if or if I don't have Compartment Syndrome, I will continue to be positive and persevere to get better.

Thursday: abs at lunch and weights in the evening (hoping not to get out of work too late...) 

 Breakfast & Snacks & Coffee: healthy and low calories... about 550.

Lunch: light! small wrap (on the very, very light side around 200 cal) and chips around 200 cal. 400 total

Total so far: 950....will try to keep it low & go to the gym for full upper body weights (didn't sleep well, but will still try to have a great workout tonight!!!) I did about 15-20 min abs at lunch :-D

 Thursday's calories were around 1700. EXCELLENT. but, major caffeine overdose before gym and i wasn't feeling well, at all, and shouldn't try any more new energy drinks! haha

Oh that's fantastic news on your appointment. I hope this yields some good results for you, no matter what the diagnosis is!

Saturday: excellent upper body workout, but legs started hurting after and were hurting even more after I did a few errands for the day. 2400 cal. decent (glad it wasn't higher, but still too high for my activity levels)

Sunday: abs workout & upper legs. legs were in slight pain all day.  around 2200 cal (hopefully not much more!)...decent calories but too high for low activity.

Monday: total was 2250. Happy President's Day!  Today I have a dental cleaning, I hope to do weights at the gym (upper body), and I have my first appointment for physical therapy at the new place.  Too busy really!  I was going to also drive to return a bone stimulator to a dr office about a half hour away, but I don't think i'll be fitting it into the mix.  They haven't called saying they want it back - so - I will hold on to it & plan to return it on a different weekday down the road that I have off....probably in a couple months from now, if not longer.

I have already done laundry today, and it's only 7:30am :-)  It's good to go to bed early when you have a busy day ahead!

Monday Breakfast: wrap with pumpkin 100, and pumpkin butter 20, 1 egg and 2 egg whites 110, stevia, strawberries 80, cashew milk 70: 380, good!

In some ways, I pray that I have chronic "Compartment Syndrome" so that I can have the fasciatomy surgery and recover completely.  I will definitely be taking the test for it, a pressure type test, as soon as I can get it....as soon as I get another appointment with the next doctor.  Unfortunately, I have to also rely on my dad for this, good and bad, because he has the connection to the other doctor...it's been a year, so every bit more of waiting frustrates me because I want this under control ASAP.

snack: pb on wrap 250

snack: shake 200 at most.

around 850, perfecto.

lunch: big, lots of veggies and salads: around 600-650.

snack: fruit

dinner: too big, but good. veggies with some oil 200 at least, turkey on small wrap 150, pb on wrap 250: 650 or so forgot about the soy chips. make this 750

2250 or so. at least I did upper body today (strong workout).

best part about today is i've only had 1,000 calories up to leaving work = wonderful because i'm gonna have a nice, big, tasty full of veggies dinner :-)

exercise: only 15 min of upper leg work.

total cal 1850, success.

dinner was massive....a Chinese soup dish, tons of veggies (cups and cups)....followed by an egg white omelette wrap and greek yogurt with stevia, cinnamon & pumpkin butter for dessert.

2am strawberries middle of the night into Saturday = around 50 more.

total is 1900, still good.  (I knew I'd probably be waking up because I was doing that these past few days)

I went to work Thursday despite the storm & did very well calorie-wise. around 2050.

lately, as long as I have healthy choices, I meet my calorie goals.

exercise: abs at home in my apartment.  I wasn't in the mood to go to the gym at 5pm and get home later after that.  so instead I did some laundry so now I don't have to think about it again until Monday :-) because I am off that day for President's Day! yay!

Breakfast: fruit / pumpkin / egg whites: 100. followed by wrap with some oil, turkey / egg - 250 = 350, maybe 400 :-)

snack: coffee if offered, otherwise, just tea. bar. 150, chocolate 50

600...maybe i should try to keep cals low...and make today a lower cal day...

Lunch: 550 at most...

maybe 1950 at most, def decent and probably good enough for weight loss because I did upper body weights today.  Taking the day off again from leg exercises.  Also did upper leg exercises at the gym.  Tomorrow I wake up early because I have to pick something up at the radiology office to bring to my appointment on Wednesday.  I will try to be there to pick it up early....7am early....tomorrow.
