Bored as hell at work, being bad and going on DD :-D

Calories are great, as per usual for this week. Getting more sleep, sleeping in later, and eating quickly on the way to work most of these days.

1750-1800 PERFECT.

exercise: some walking, hoping it wasn't too much & that I can walk a lot on Sunday at the beach :-D

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

Good Morning!

Good day so far, calories up to lunch: 600 :-) 

Very boring week at work,too much time to drift off onto the internet...and waste time & procrastinate. i hope i don't ever drift into these bad habits when i start the NYPD. it will be pretty impossible, as the classes are only 6 months. no time to get into bad habits in a 6 month time frame when a new job/career will be on the line! :-D that is next year though...11 months away to be exact :-)

1350 so far, too much coffee...otherwise healthy/balanced... 1700..

dinner: 300.

perfect, 2000 cal.


workout: full weights.

last night i ate prob more around 2300, but is ok. i think i am slowly losing again. and, I am going to give myself a goal...to eat a lil less these next 2 weeks before i meet up with my Marine Man...before he leaves for deployment for probably 6 months? i need to ask him how long. this is a different man from my regular, my regular may be done, as last time we got together he treated me poorly, dropping me off bc of something i said rather than talk to me about it... 

Calories after lunch: total so far: 1200...1350 snack of almonds.

snacking after work nothing healthy: some milk/almond milk/decaf coffee/stevia mixture 50, iced coffee decaf again 50, apple 100, protein bar 210: 410....on my way to 30 minutes of swimming...it was pretty good, too!

dinner: healthy I guess. some small cucumbers with dressing 50 at most, tofu 100, on crackers 150: 300, great!

total is good! 2060 :-) excellent.

(2250) ok. evened out that high cal day from like last week, finally. now, on to real weight loss. even if I manage around 2000 per day, I will eventually lose some weight. doesn't have to be fast, just steady. harder  and slower than we want it to be, but it works (steady weight loss)

swimming is such fantastic exercise! YAY! Walk away from users..don't give up what you have that is precious because guys will say anything to get it and drop you hot as soon as you push for more of a commitment. And, trust me, they can go for a REALLY LONG TIME, pretending to be more to get what they want, and even after years run away fast when you hint at committment. You are worth the wait and the man who is willing to wait, is the only one who will respect you, cherish you, and protect your heart. The old saying why buy the cow when the milk is free, is very true. It took me FOREVER to realize that myself. Not preaching, just saying what I've learned. I hate to see more of us getting hurt. Sex doesn't define love. Having sex doesn't make people fall in love either. Goodness I sound like a mom LOL sorry HOP!

You must keep me posted about "Marine Man" LOL at your boss sleeping on the job.. Good evening friend :)

You would be surprised to know that the big muscular guys are big sweethearts, at least the ones I have dated ;) Seriously just be yourself, obviously he already like you so think positive girl!!

Good Start, slept in a little before work.  Brought breakfast to eat on the drive.

Breakfast: 2 tablespoons cashew butter on hamburger burn with two warmed bran crackers, iced coffee with stevia: all around 450

snack: bar 200



2200-2300 or so. maybe more. is ok.

skipped exercise tonight. in lieu of a bigger, filling dinner and early to bed later. I was dizzy all day at work.

goodnight ladies. praying I do get to sleep tonight, I was falling asleep all day today. and, if tomorrow is better which it should be, I should have a nice workout after work at the pool.

Good Morning :-)

So what's the plan? to exercise more, eat less!!! lol, also to have a good weekend!

went to bed at 1am, woke up around 7:30....I will try to fall back to sleep after reading..all morning I was sleeping, on and off, while doing laundry. I was sleeping even at 1pm when my phone went off to wake up & get ready for the swim class!

7:30am breakfast: fruit and nuts 250, followed by cashew butter 200 on a small wrap 60 with a sweet stevia packet thrown into the mix: around 510, decent. I love nut butters...

snack that ended up not being as tasty as I remembered: kale chips pink peppercorn 160

lunch: chicken and chipotle style bean chips: 500, followed by twix cookie bars (boss had given them to me, of course I ate them!) lol 750...blech.

snack: small protein bar 130, probably iced decaf coffee with stevia...200 total

too tired for weights. plan is to swim today at the lesson, some extra before maybe, come home & change and go to the party....

dinner: will hopefully be some sorta bbq something! lol...hopefully a hot dog or hamburger...meat. good stuff. some dessert. very little beer.

sooo....probably around 2200. a good day. swimming was exercise :-)

I got my period a few days early and i'm feeling really beat.

Happy Friday! Feeling a bit like death, but happy it's Friday & excited for the weekend :-D lots of nice plans with nice folks. what more could a girl ask for!? and meeting up with my marine friend Monday evening, good deal...been thinking about it a lot lately... :-)

breakfast: 500; 2 big tablespoons almond butter on roll with couple warmed and moist scandanavian crispbreads for fiber. stevia packet for extra sweetness. and iced coffee, pretty big medium size from dunkin donuts.

snack: 100 half of the protein bar, not hungry, right before lunch around noon. 

1pm lunch: roll with smart balance spread, just a little for the satisfying feeling you get from adding a little fat to the meal...and TONS of cold cuts, mostly roasted turkey, also roast beef. not more than 500. 

1100, perfecto baby!

snack: nuts fruit, maybe around 200 or a lil bit more.

dinner: grilled chicken salad from restaurant, out to eat with coworker, or rather, bringing food back to her apartment.  lots of seaweed salad, salad with dressing, nuts, and scallops. maybe like 700, maybe more.

2000-2100, good.

...If I can keep eating a normal amount of calories, I will lose the weight...also starting to walk again...

exercise; half hour swim (with breaks) and some light walking at lunch. good...can't do much more right now.

I think I fell asleep at work today. boss caught me, but no big deal (he does it too! and I catch him...) u see, with little stimulation, and quiet for so long, it can happen quite easily. I am worried by this though, and plan to start listening to classical music with small earphones while I work! will be figuring this out soon!
