Weight: 127.0

Still debating if I would prefer the pool or abs/legs at gym tonight.  Pool is more challenging for sure - I would go for around 20 min.  I can even do abs after at home - if I really want to. - as long as I'm feeling decent tonight - I will even bring some sorta natural energy shot sample I have for after work...

Snack: piece of banana and hot airborne drink: 5-. (have a slightly sore throat - must kick it in the bud asap!)

finally satisfying breakfast: low carb wrap with turkey, one egg, avocado, and pumpkin: 350!

snack: coffee 50, bar 200

total: 650, perfect.

lunch: will be healthy...and deciding to skip pool and just do light exercise at gym (abs, few leg exercies) and maybe eat boss' food....but being sure to be healthy :-D

I will keep calories balanced, in check, including weekends...i will not get fat bc times are tough and i can't exercise - i will be smart and eat better, i know i can!

calories were great - 2050 :-) and a good core and legs day at the gym (45 min)

 

 

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

Uh oh. Hope you aren't getting sick. I prefer to do non-machine exercises at home. Have a great day.

Hate the sore throat.

1300 including lunch. good. crazy hungry lately and i Iam just not satisfied eating less...gonna have to try much harder.

1450 with snack of roasted almonds.

then, i have to eat before i go to the gym - i could do an easy routine tonight & hard tomorrow...in an effort to not have to each so much tonight before the gym....which would be a smart way to go...so i'll just to abs and legs tonight - but my abs are quite bloated!? 

yay it's fixed!!! I can post again!!!

around 2050-2100. good thing is a did a strong, very strong, 45 min weights routine with very little rest periods.  I just plowed through, doing more of a circuit-type workout! I probably burned every calorie I ate, I can say this with 99% positivity!

plan is for the pool tonight :-)

Breakfast:piece of banana 30, roll with one egg 200, avocado 80, yogurt with pumpkin 210: 520, good. hopefully it'll fill me up for most of the morning?

snack: decaf coffee (want to pick it up from DD...) and bar...

lunch: chicken, roll, butternut squash

total around 2350...too high, but all very healthy. getting fat bc i am not burning as much as i'm eating & it's finally catching up.

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

grannyannie on 12/09/2013:
The breakfast I've found that sticks with me the longest is porridge/oatmeal with dried fruits added. Have a great day!


OhioRaven on 12/09/2013:
Annie's right about the oatmeal. There is a lot in my morning breakfast soup every day or I'd be hungry WAY before lunch. Have a hood day, Hop.


skinnygrlwithin on 12/09/2013:
Ditto annie and ohio... I add a little peanut butter and honey to mine and I'm always full until lunch.


biscottibody59 on 12/09/2013:
Enjoy your evening!


horn_of_plenty on 12/09/2013:
I will have to work on having oatmeal again for breakfast I think! around 2350 cal today - a bit high, but lots of healthy items all day - much better in terms of healthy choices.

Good Morning!  Slept really well last night. Maybe 9 hours :-D Woke up feeling sore from just running errands!?, but relaxed!

7am or so Big breakfast: sautéed veggies 250?, cereal with almond milk 230 or so, natural chocolate coated vegan bar (in the place of pie or cake!) 320: 800 satisfying calories.

11am/11:30 snack before gym for upper body weights (probably pool tomorrow or just abs/legs depending how I feel): tons of canned pumpkin (around a cup) 100 with a lot of stevia in a 2% fage greek yogurt 150: total is a healthy, around 2 cups worth: 250 cal! rock on! tell me you can find a yogurt dish, 2 cups, for only 250 cal!

snack: iced decaf with extra milk 100

snack: protein shake 150

early meal: roasted veggies galore 200, 200, 100

total around 2300.

 

....now to get my booty to the GYM! then, one errand to return a moden (bought a DSL wireless router/modem and didn't realize that time warner cable only uses CABLE modems...duh!?...maybe I should do more checking next time!) I really do not want to do more than this one errand, so I won't! maybe just pick up more food for the week :) after that, I am coming home, sorting through all the health bills I can submit for reimbursement - should add up to around $150, I think! that is some good pocket change to have!

I stupidly threw out a 40% old navy discount card (only to be received through snail mail not online) and made a $150.- purchase at the store yesterday without that good discount....could have saved around $60.- NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL with using all discounts and saving them if i'm NOT SURE I will use them! Learning from that mistake, for sure. :-/

up early for work starting at 7am today.

BREAKFAST: 450 cal breakfast and actually extremely healthy. (some avocado, ww roll, little bit greek yogurt, one egg and one egg white, some fruit, some sauteed pakastani okra with herbs and some oil. tea.

snack: decaf large coffee with milk 100? bar 180?

lunch: ugh, cannot even think about it....wanting a turkey wrap....and some of the veggies i brought....600, ALL HEALTHY...BUT HAD CAFFEINE :)

5pm snack on ride home before I realized I wanted dinner lol before exercising: apple and an all natural green tea shot thing 150

5:45pm dinner right after snack: salad greens 20, roasted brussel sprouts 100, piece of banana 20, okra Pakistani style 150, small piece grilled chicken 100, ww bread roll100: 500, healthy and good.

EXERCISE: 20 min pool - good considering it's only the second time I've went since re-joining at the end of October!  It felt SOOOO good to do some cardio.  I left early bc I didn't want to overuse my legs or body.  Sometimes we need to have exercise, yes, but less is more...if you know what I mean.  Especially for me, since I have a tendency to overdo things.

Snack: bar, 200

total cal = 2200 - good!

Am thinking the pool, but after this nice meal, I will wait before doing anything. maybe i'll just stay home, we'll see.

Your mention of okra may have inspired me to make some okra gumbo.

Saw your comment to oRaven--he's a guy:-)

RYC: Our normal high is around 60F and the low is abt 40F for this time of year--so this is a little unusual for early December. I totally hear you on the eating when confined--glad I don't have a big box of candy and a block of cheese:-)

b & snacks - 800

lunch: veggies 150, chicken 100, chips 150: 400 or so - good. and some good laughs with 2 coworkers, finally :-D

1200, excellent. planning on upper body weights at the gym.

4pm crackers: 110 or so.

preworkout: diet dr pepper, 3/4 of bottle & during start of workout (was absolutely too tired to work out) and whole pint of very roasted brussel sprouts! so good, from nearby key food! 200.

post workout: shake 200?, then gave in around 9pm and had some of the food I bought - some oil - pakastani eggplant (in some oil) and okra (seasoned sooooo good...and some oil on that as well) maybe around 250 at most for the veggies here. so, 450, (still decent considering pre-workout "dinner" was 200)

total: around 1950, ahhh, nice. this is a very good total. very happy with this. and if I stuck to this, I could lose a pound a month! LOL. for me to lose weight, it's gotta be REALLY slowly - or it backfires and I gain. so, will try to do better this month - as long as I have cooked veggies always available when I am home in my apartment, I am good. LOL. (this means me cooking or making sure I stop by the store when I don't cook - which is too often!)

Breakfast 2% yogurt 150, bread 150, egg 70, butternut squash soufflé 60: around 450 :)

lately blood sugar is all over the place, feeling hungry all morning more than usual, and I've gained some weight. gonna have to work harder, like i said, this month, to lose 5 lbs till February...hopefully can lose 10 lbs overall, but that is like a year-long goal.  would love to weigh even 120 again. i would say i am 127-128 now.

feeling really bad, really tired, really really tired. not sure my legs will ever get better. they hurt, i'm exhausted.

around 2250...and satisfied.

dessert after dinner with a small whole wheat roll with pb & jelly and banana. good way to end the night!

physical therapist said time to take some time off again & let's see if the legs fully heal.

shower & early to bed.
