Thanks for the comment =) Hope your tummy feels better and you have a good day!


panda22 on 06/04/2009:
Sorry to hear about the binge HOP...tomorrow is a new day and you can pick yourself up and make it a great successful one! Hope you are feeling better tomorrow!

New day new you- put tomorrow behind you and make today and awesome one!! That being said, the occasional binge isn't so bad- it will keep your body guessing so it doesn't plateau out from a lower calorie diet all the time. The key is to get back on track today!! You can do it!!

today was not a wash. yes, high in calories. NO, NOT incessantly high. for that i thank all the powers around me! lol. i spent most of the hours i should have been in school either in bed, watching tv, or eating my too large lunch. and this is what i needed. AND, i was able to get my front car brakes replaced without an appointment! wahoo. very good and honest place, $180 dollars later! haha. gotta do it, can't be driving around squeaking up a storm!

so, total calories today are about 2260. could be a hell of a lot worse. glad it's not. should take me about 1 week to lose the pound i gained from yesterday's 5,000 calorie day. it is what it is!!!

have a good evening everyone. busy night. and i did go to the gym, 35 strenuous minutes on the treadmill and abs, back, pushups. was worthwhile and felt good to sweat out some of the crap in my body right now!  take care everyone!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

went to school really early to study, then took a test, and was home by 9:30am...took a nap.

breakfast/early snacks: 250 healthy cal.  (in school)

snacks: 2 tomatoes 80  (before my nap.)

total here: 330

after nap: BIG early lunch: ok. lean cuisine 200, chips w. guacamole around 750, ice cream 560 total here: 1510. not unexpected the day after a binge...

total so far today: 1840...

snack:

dinner:

i did end up binging: 2 small bananas, butter on bagel, ice cream sandwich  still counting cals. not angry.  500.

more ice cream 300, CAKE 700 at least... total here 1,000

total today: 4,000. yeah.  GRAND TOTAL 5,000 calories today....blah. can't be upset. i was totally exhausted today....of course i probably should have just slept!  (3,000 calories too many.)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

long day....grateful it is over. nothing bad at all, just lots of physical stuff at school. lots of moving patients and machines. all of which i'm happy to perform just a bit tired. no exercise needed today. i do need to study though....

breakfast: 370 or so.  watermelon, cheese on toasted bagel and a light yogurt. ran out of my fave stuff - egg whites/egg substitute...

snack: 140 bar and water. kashi bar.

lunch: around 550-600  chicken cold cut sandwich on a whole wheat roll with some kind of regular kettle cooked potato chips (180 for the chips)  chips were well worth it. and i'm happy about ALL indulgences today!

snack: arg...i decided it wouldn't be a low cal day...first a fiber one bar 170 and a low cal powerade drink, then soft serve ice cream/small cone...here around 650 total?

up to here: around 1750...

more snack: weight watchers small bagel (these are terrific!) they have fiber and protein. 150...

so, 1900....i WILL NOT DARE go over 2300 today. NO I WILL NOT. oh, i'm tempted 100%. but i won't do it! :)

dinner: kashi meal and a tomato 500?

2400 before binge...

i am proud to say it will NOT happen no matter what! :) yay. i know better.

oh, and 2200s are a bit high probably even with the physical activity, but overall it is a good number for me. anyone should be content with a number like that, just not EVERYDAY.

and tomorrow will be a lot more sitting and i'll try to watch calories carefully. but on days like this, i could care less about a high calorie day. 2500 would be dumb but 2200s is just fine. you try moving around Intensive Care Patients and Xray machines all day. LOL :) good day overall.

today was pretty good. i let myself get toooooo hungry bc i had a crappy lunch of 100 cal wheat thins, coffee, and a kashi (has some protein like 6-7 grams bar).  ehhh. not good, i was sooooo shakey by 3. and i had lunch at noon. ugh. shouldn't be that way!

breakfast: different: fruit and a yellow pepper: 150 or so.

snack: bagel w. egg: 250

lunch: horrible! lol. 300

snack 1: bar, pepper, tomato: weird, i know. 270 or so.

snack 2: ugh...a different kind of kashi bar. 150 hmmm, i had 3 bars today! weird.

dinner: another yellow pepper, cucumber with light dressing 100. another weight watchers fiber bagel w. light spray toasted 170 or so and then with cheese 100 and egg 80 total here: 450 or so.....

total today: 1570 (but i really did want lower. however, this is totally fine!!!!) and i know i burned more than that amount today. so all is good in the world. if only everyday i could be successful....

EXERCISE: was tired. one mile at the park...then 20 minutes on elliptical at the gym and some pushups/abs, back work.

all in all a nice day. i am still recovering from last weekends HUGE milers of 9 and 9.5 miles per day. this past weekend i get in an 8.5 mile day. so all in all, i guess i'm improving more than i give myself credit for. i couldn't run today. i tried and gave up at the park. i NEEDED some other kind of cardio. was almost gonna ride my bike but decided on the gym elliptical.........

Today I finally stepped on the scale: 140. nothing to be proud of, but i have lost a few since being 145. I need to be out of the 130s....hmmm, too far fetched? i don't think so...

early breakfast: honeydew melon 80 or so.

later breakfast: NOT SURE...might be another grilled cheese and egg like yesterday...not the healthiest, but it tasted so good...i might be a healthier bread to make it on and lower the calories...arg. and i'm picking up some avocado from the supermarket....i love that stuff!

lunch: fiber one bar, drinks: 150

snack: cookies. 270

snack before dinner: special bar called "full bar" search online if you're interested. it actually does work. (as would eating anything 30 min before a meal, lol) 200 or so

calories before dinner: around 1,000.

darn bbq dinner that i don't want to eat:  i would like to watch myself and NOT go overboard. would have liked to only eat 500 more...but there will be some grilled veggies in olive oil and the protein is meat. so, i will most probably have more around 800 or so cal...whatever, at least it's healthy food. i'll try harder this week. and 1800 is not crazy like 3100 or something horrible. even 2000 wouldn't suck that bad....so i'm enjoying dinner. whatever that means.

exercise: not really much. short walk with grandma. my left foot hurts bad.

Hey, 140 would be heaven to me, haha! But we're all different. I never thought I would get over 170 again but here I am. Just keep on working on it, it will happen. Thanks for all your comments!


vivpet on 05/31/2009:

small breakfast around 8am: cherries, drink mix: around 100.

went back to sleep till after 11 or so! wow. i didn't sleep well all week so i'm thankful i was able to sleep late today!

lunch at 11:45 or so: tomato, grilled cheese: 500 was great!

i kinda screwed up on dinner, having a full healthy meal, chips, then 2 bowls of cereal and ice cream after. but, calories are ok. 2250 calories.  it's funny how i didn't stick to eating in the 1500s...but if i consider my exercise today, this calorie amount is fine.

exercise: 8.5 miles or so! :) most was walking. i will try to keep active tomorrow, too. my parents want to have a bbq.

edit: i had a good day. bad mood during school, at lot due to overeating last night and the test we had AFTER lunch that i had to think about all day....but afterwards i had a very healthy snack, took a nap, and walked 3 miles. had a late dinner around 8pm. gonna read, rest up. I SO WANT to exercise a lot tomorrow, my ankle may not be up to it.... but i'll try.  would have LIKED to go 12 miles.....we shall see....12 miles with rests with snacks.... soon enough i will accomplish this.

snack after school: 2 small peaches, a yellow pepper, a red pepper, drink mix: around 200

snack afer walking: 170 healthy fiber bar about 30 minutes before dinner to get rid of most of my appetite...it works!

dinner: healthy choice mediterranean pasta so good! 360, tons of celery 60 total 420

total cals today are good: 1310. this is as good as it can get. and healthy today.

avg cals between today and yesterday bc it's on my mind: 2230. thank gosh! :) thank gosh....thank you jackie. :) i had to accomplish this, to get over yesterday. i am on a good streak. i don't want to give up, ever.  i just can't. this HAS to be a good rest of the year. a good summer. i need this. i can do it. no matter what, i'm going to get there. i have NO reason to fail.  i have age, parents, and close friends on my side. what more do i need. and thanks to all of you, always.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

breakfast: fruit 80

snack: bar 140 healthy kashi bar

lunch: 100 cal pack of cheez its, coffee, another kashi trail mix bar: 300

doing good keeping it low. yesterday's high cal day is really unfortunate. i feel so gross right now.

total so far: 520. if i can do 1200, that would be the best. or, i'll just try keeping it below 1500.

can't wait for it to be the weekend already. decided to go to the hospital libarary for a break at lunch...

take care everyone, catch up with you later...  ;)

remember yesterday when i said i wouldn't be binging....etc...?

well, i did today. i didn't have to, but was exhausted, didn't exercise bc i had errands after school. oh well. it could be FAR worse. but, i need to pull in the reins...i was doing good losing some weight! i need to continue not just gain it back.

today's calories could have been around 1700 without a problem. but i continued to eat....and 4 servings tortilla chips, 5 ice cream pops, and 1 large bowl of granola later: 3150 cals today.  ehh. what can i do now. i can eat better on the weekend....and exercise...but i may take friday's exercise easy....i was hoping to do a lot on saturday, but if my ankle isn't better i may not be able to do what i was hoping.

goodnight all, it's been a week of lots going on. but a pretty good one.
