exercise: 2hr, 10 min
total: 24 hr, 10 min!
today was a great calorie and exercise day. I'm heading in the right direction. Tomorrow, I know, will be just as good! :)
calories are close to 1200. :) i'm very happy about this!
exercise: 1 mile in the morning, 5.5 mile walk near the water. so far, 6.5 miles. I might walk on the treadmill for a little while as I watch some tv.
I've also joined this dating service. lol. it's something that's pretty popular on Long Island. I've been talking to a few people online. Hey, its just good fun.
Have a goodnight everyone. I never ended up seeing a movie today. But, tomorrow, i'm going to see the new movie with Halle Berry in it! :) I love her acting.
Goodnight all! :)
I will plan for tomorrow. Whenever I have a plan, the whole day goes sooo much smoother! Also, the walk in the morning after I have breakfast is working out well!

Saturday afternoon edit:
this day is really turning into an ugly day. it's turning ugly because everyone is fighting and the whole atmosphere in this house is just nasty. my sister is b----ing everyone around. I really DON'T understand it. She really expects us all to do things for her. I asked her to take the soap out of a tubberware container that i had bought and she just wouldn't do it. i asked again, with more authority, and she got all pissed at me. She said there were no other ones like it. I told her to buy one. she still wouldn't take the soap out. I took it out. I got SCREAMED at by my mother. arg!
Saturday AM edit:
So today is good so far. I had breakfast and it was bran and soy peanut butter protein powder mix with water. It was satisfying. then, i drank a lot of water with cherry chocolate flavored stevia in it. My stomach is pretty full - being from breakfast and from last night.
The plan is to walk on the treadmill for 1/2 hr, clean the bathroom, shower, watch a movie, exercise at the park, go to the bookstore, exercise at the gym, and watch another movie tonight. arg. I really wish I could start volunteering already. I just finished all the medical tests for it yesterday! :) I will also probably start working at the elementary after school a couple days a week. more to update later.
Friday entry: exercise was not so great today. morning was 20 min treadmill, evening was 5 min treadmill and 20 min bike.
total exercise today: 45 lousy, slow minutes.
total Oct: 22 hrs :)
I had a totally preventable binge. arg. it's ok though. If i eat well, correctly, over the weekend @ 1200 cal per day I will be happy.
Today's calories are 3800. The binge was in the evening and it was on bread and peanut butter. haha, 1/2 cup peanut butter and lots of bread and a banana. and this was after a meal....and then i had two "real" jellos, cereal, more cereal and soy milk.
hmm. i will exercise. I think it'll just be a walk on the treadmill at home so that i can wear whatever i like and not see anyone. lol.
today's weather was CRAZY. it was pouring and when school got out i had to walk students to the bus in the pouring rain. oh my. i got drenched, then i had to find my car at the train and go straight to the doctor to finish up a blood test that i didn't do in order to volunteer. it's all done now! thankfully!
now, i'm going to check the weather and see what plans I need to make in order to get a good amount of exercise in for this weekend!

total exercise: 21 hrs, 15 min :)
today was a little odd. I had a powerpoint meeting after work which was helpful. I also went to exercise, only to find out there was also some marching band festival going on. i stopped by to watch a little bit after exercising. then, i accidentally walked the wrong way back only to see the gate locked. i had to walk 10 minutes back the other way. There was nobody around and it was definitely a little scary, to say the least.
calories were good, because i was busy and because i made good choices. same with exercise.
calories: about 1330
exercise: 1 hr, 20 min :)

I'm a bit tired...so, i'm just going to bed early, 30 min walking.
total 19 hrs, 55 min.
I actually did have a pretty busy day. first time in awhile and tomorrow will be similiar to today! :) Life needs activity sometimes.
calories could have been LOWER, but i shouldn't even worry about that because my body needs to adjust SLOWLY, as workingit would agree with, to this lower calorie diet. today is 1600. I had some extra veggie sausage and bread at dinner.
i had my first fall apple today. i hadn't been eating much fruit, or practically any fruit, for about one month. It tasted really good. I'll be definitely having one a day. I intend to begin the day with an apple before what i hope to be my usual 20 minute early morning walks. I will build up minutes from 20. For the rest of the month, my goal is 20 minutes every morning.
I would love if then November would be 25 min in the morning, December 30 min, January 35, February 40, March 45, April 50, May 55 minutes. After reaching 55 minutes, I'd stick to that as my early morning exercise.
nothing else new. Just a few teaching courses through the district! :)
I'm pretty tired.

i must update one more time today. I shouldn't be acting this way, especially because this is the EASIEST of all jobs i have had in the past 4 years, including this year. I have NO reason to not be able to accomplish what i wish. But, I AM ruining it for myself.
I am going on a 1200 calorie diet. And i would really like to say i will not binge again.
today was not as good as the preceeding days...and my pants are getting really tight!!!
i need to be mature about all of this. i'm acting really immature, eating whatever i wish. this is not smart.
i've been buying stuff out of the vending machine at lunch. It's pretty much on a daily basis. it's not healthy, but i was figurring that would be a great way to end cravings. nah. it's not working. I still binged after school.
therefore, i will have to change my mindset. yet again.
no more junk good. more veggies. my skin is bad because i've been eating bad.
calories are BAD: 5,000.

Sunday morning edit:
I'm doing well today. Woke up and had breafast and went back to sleep for about an hour. I woke up at 7am. I had some cereal and soy protein mix and it was all very good. 320.
I had a snack of a veggie burger and broccoli slaw with dressing. 185.
I had another snack of Kombucha. I cleaned my room and did laundry.
Now, i'm going out for a walk at the park. Then, lunch. Then, to an Oyster Festival, haha!, with some friends. I live on the east coast - and there's always great things to do this time of year. :)
Saturday PM entry:
today was an overall good day.
Breakfast = bran cereals and water/protein powder peanut butter flavor mix. 315 cal.
snack: coffee 40
lunch: subway wrap (some kind of white wrap) with roast beef and harvest cheddar sun chips 520
snack: kombucha, veggie burger and broccoli slaw with spray dressing 205
dinner: subway again, different place. They had DIFFERENT wraps here. I liked it better because the wrap was whole wheat and larger than the white wrap i had for lunch. I had salsa flavor sun ships. 500
snack: diet coke. i might have something else later. It's only 8:39 and i'm getting all snacky already. Dinner was at 7:30 so i really shouldn't be hungry. and tomatoes (40)
I did 5.5 miles at the park. This park is awesome because one way is half that mileage. So, going back and forth only once gets a whole lot of miles down!
time: 110 minutes (1 hr, 50 min.)
total oct exercise: 16 hrs, 15 min :)

Saturday afternoon edit: I'm having a good day. I had a cereal breakfast with protein powder. Lots of bran to get things moving. I went to see the movie Elizabeth: The Golden Age. It was pretty good. some gorey parts, nothing too bad. I had a decaf coffee during the movie.
I had lunch at 1:30 and was sooooo shakey before eating. It was sick! I bought sun chips and a roast beef wrap. I had to drink a whole 20 ounce or whatever it was of water, taking my time, before leaving Subway. I came home and took a nap!! Did some laundry, ironing. I drank a little Kombucha and now I'm off to the park. Btw, i felt better after lunch. I had breakfast around 9:15 and it was awhile since breakfast before lunch, which contributed to the shakeyness.
865 calories + kombucha = 925 calories :)
45 min exercise.
total = 14 hrs, 25 min :)
calories: 2330 (added a green pepper before bed)
lol. i just have to laugh. binged on 5 packets cinnamon oatmeal. right out of the packages with a spoon. no liquid
total cal today: 2300.
calories so far are 1660. didn't stick to any kind of low sugar plan. breakfast = pretzels 220 bc i was running late and the selection at school that i had to choose from was HORRIBLE!
snack = veggie burger and tomatoes = good snack. = 130
lunch = ham, alfalfa sprouts and tomatoes = 200
snack after school/binge = alfalfa sprouts (whole container), carrots, 4 veggie burgers, 2 yogurts with fruit flavor and lots of sugar in them along with 2 scoops of protein. 1110
want to know some gross information? I have been eating so much that my body can hardly hold it in anymore. I have trouble walking around and feel like I constantly need to use the bathroom. LOL, sadly, you can't do that while teaching at school. I actually had to wear something protective so that I had no major accidents until being able to get to the bathroom. That's disgraceful!!!
I'm working on it...LOL.
I'm working on it...
It's soooo hard to stop binging. This can be a great weekend.
It really can. I need a plan. That's what i'll do now :)

30 min exercise
13 hrs, 40 min :) exercise.
so, again with the plan: i like an emphasis on some protein. carbs might give me energy but i always find myself binging on them. I have always recieved greatest success with a diet with ample protein and more veggies/fruits than i've been eating. so, i need to somehow come back to reality. vending machine food is junk. when i was even in high school, i hardly ever bought that stuff! Boy have things changed in the past 10 years! haha.
the plan for awhile:
breakfast can be bran cereal/fiber cereal with protein powder mixed in.
i needed to think of a good snack. I think i have one. it'll be a morningstar veggie burger and, lol, some vegetable. like, cherry tomatoes. i have such a late lunch, it doesn't work well for me at all. I'll have this snack when i'm standing in the lunchroom watching the kids. If someone says something, i'll flat out tell them that i get very hungry/shakey at that time and i need to eat something. it should be perfectly fine.
then, 2 hours later, i hvae lunch 5 minutes to 2pm. it'll be veggies and protein for awhile...no carbs from the vending machine (candy, twix, cheese-its).
when i get home, i'll allow myself a snack of course. veggies and a veggie burger or sausage or any protein. I'll make sure to mix it up a bit.
dinner: subway wrap with chips. diet coke
calories for today are 4260. I didn't think this would happen today.
Breakfast: bowl of a grain and nut cereal mixed with fiber cereal, milk, and a little protein powder. then, peanut butter sandwich. 770
lunch: ham with cherry tomatoes and sprouts. some peanut and crackers snack from the vending machine and twix cookie bars.
when i got home, i wasn't even hungry. its raining really bad and i wasn't going to walk a half hour to get my car...and i wasn't even sure of the location because my sister hadn't told me.
i did binge: chicken noodle soup with an entire package of broccoli slaw (pretty much just 4 cups of cut up broccoli). 2 veggie burgers. then, a whole 6 ounce bag of chocolate, milano cookies, jelly candy, cinnamon roll oatmeal, chex and milk, granola and milk.
total calories: 4260.
