Weight: 127.0

not more than 1900.  got to the gym around 7pm. out at 8:45. home at 9ish. got a text to come tomorrow morning at 7am....I would have gotten a good amount of sleep, but this is something I can't control. oh well. at least I got a superb workout done.  I was HIGHLY motivated tonight.

goodnight.!  I've been a bit busy, I guess DD has been on the backburner...

breakfast: full before I even started, from last night, lol. anyways, some spinach spread (very tasty, pakastani food) on pita 150, one egg 80, pumpkin spread in greek yogurt 170: grand total 400 healthy, all healthy!

snacking: gatorate (coworker asked if i wanted some) and a bar 220

620, great.

meeting back near my apartment after work today, but I still may stick it out and get to the gym for a (shortened) but more intense weights routine....I know I need to tweak it, it's too long, my regular routine...

dizzy, tired today at work...what is my deal!? and i got a full 8 hours of sleep...felt a little better this morning. lately, i'm thinking I may start need to be getting NINE hours of sleep! what on earth!? I never needed that much, ever, not sure why. I could be feeling a little more out of it bc of the change in my diet/eating to no caffeine (for the most part) and no coffee.  on the weekend, i wanted the coffee so bad, and ate tons of calories instead when i gave in.  obviously not a good thing...still recovering from that high sugar-high cal binge on Sunday.  Actually, even my hands are swollen today (not by much, but they are). 

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

I also slept a lot and I'm dragging today! What's wrong with us? Haha

breakfast: sautéed okra (yeah, couldn't wait I guess) 150?, lots of "palak" 100, bread 150, egg 100, yogurt with pumpkin spread 200, half banana 50: 750. too much, yes, but healthy foods.

will try to not make this day a "wash out."  Today will be 2200 calories no matter what, not like yesterday.

well, I did it.

2200.

was aiming for much lower, but I did 2200.

you bet that's a success.

cheers.

binge over in one day (yesterday). getting much better at this!

exercise was awesome too. 45 min in PM. at least 35 min at lunch. all walking.

legs are a bit painful, but still, getting better. (I did a lot of walking Saturday)

1am woke up hungry & couldn't sleep...not the best food choices, either.

1am: almond butter / cashew butter on pita: 450, apple 100, protein bar 200: 750.  I was really active yesterday, maybe that has something to do with it. also, not a ton of protein for dinner, but still!

around 1050 and it's only 9am.  having a hungry/craving type of day.

lunch: peppers 50, salmon on roll 200, okra 100, chips 150, fruit 50: 550, decent.

1600...may end up being & slightly higher cal day, like 2500. at that's more than ok.

argh. just not doing well on this relaxed day.  food is kinda all over the place.

binge: 3 servings wheat thins. 360...and 5 more. 400 followed by: greek yogurt with peanut butter and jelly 450, 3 more tablespoons pb 300, more jelly 200, bread 100: 1050. yuck. total here: 1450.

so far today: 3050.total 3500. not good, but balanceable...I am PMSing, too...

I may do weights still, tonight, or wait till tomorrow (bad idea).  just feeling like I need to rest, even though I probably don't.

I did weights, yes, and a 30 min walk in the morning. but, yes, I wasted the day.  I guess I was exhausted & didn't make good decisions. not getting any sleep didn't help.  I will take Friday off.

evening snack: wanted a protein bar (no artificial sugars) but also wanted a greek yogurt with jelly added in. had both. around 400. ok!

so, around 2250, good.

exercise: mile at lunch (20 min) and hour in evening after work & dinner...so, at least 3 miles. good.

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.
