Weight: 127.0

weird sleeping last night & pretty much up from 4am-9am. but, I got laundry done & didn't screw calories by much at all. a late lunch, but also decent calories. total so far, 3pm, is 1450 cal. pretty darn good I would say, considering my past!...glad I can go out to dinner with my folks & have a good time (and not have to worry about not saving enough calories!)

celebrating mom's 60th tonight!

exercise: lots of walking (like at least 1.5 hours) but.....my legs didn't hurt badly just minor & a lot of it was done on a soft track at the nearby college (20 min walk away) :-D

ended up being too much walking & my legs were hurting badly last night...I have learned that I cannot walk much, anymore, more than the minimum, until I am MUCH MORE HEALED. so, for now on, it's gonna be just walking at lunch...and on weekends, just errands....I will just have to delve more into weights (and included routines for every other day - upper body vs. abs/lower - so that i'm in the gym most days & burning some calories doing that.) cardio is out.

2400 cal, decent, considering it was a bday celebrating with a lil pie at the end! :-D

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

Good Morning :-D Happy Friday. Got to bed a lil late last night, but enjoyed reading a romance novel that I took out of the library. It is one of the better ones that I have read...and incorporates a lot of underlying stories into it. I can't wait to read more tonight!

Breakfast: lots of cooked cranberries - around 50 cal, flax around 50, in greek 2% yogurt 150, tablespoon peanut butter 100: 350 tasty ones! and tea with stevia.

snack: bar??

snack: bar??

lunch: lil bit of salmon with roasted peppers and broccoli rabb (veggies were all bought at Key Food, a small chain supermarket...) maybe a small bagel, maybe an apple.

around 1950, excellent!

workout: upper body weights, excellent workout!

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

Happy Friday, Hoppy.


Umpqua on 11/15/2013:
Your lunch sounds super yummy, enjoy!


liza36 on 11/15/2013:
Love the cranberry season, I had not thought of having them for breakfast though. Sounds good.

Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend with that romance novel; I started a new book last night too but mine is pretty morbid and dark. It still sucked me in!

Calories thru 5:30pm end of the workday: 1350....good...planning on stopping by the gym before heading home, for a quick bout of core work & 4 leg exercises.  (if i remembered my gym clothes, which i believe i did!)....

2050 healthy calories :-D

exercise: like 20 min at lunch. then, good legs and abs routine... :-D  this is new for me & I like it. (splitting up upper body workouts and having separate days for abs/legs)....I may keep this!

plus, on weekends, if not busy, I can get to the gym 2x :-D with the new approach of breaking up workouts. PLUS, I am not in the gym as long & have time at home to relax after....MUCH BETTER!!!!

Weight: 127.0

Breakfast: pb on bread with a lil pumpkin spread & yogurt 200. and yogurt with pb and cooked cranberries 240: 440, good.

total cal: 1850 or so. :-) that's great...and fruit at 2:30am...gosh....so around 1950.

exercise: upper body weights (and tomorrow will be abs/little bit of legs).  doing this was good, because I had physical therapy first & was still able to go to the gym - but for an hour rather than a crazy amount....I may start to do this more :-D (splitting up workout routines)...

my current weight is correct. (it may even be lower by a couple pounds - since I was weighed partially clothed & at the end of the day).

for the past 2 weeks, I've been having interrupted sleep, waking up hungry or just with an appetite, not sleeping through the night.

OhioRaven on 11/13/2013:
Hey, I'm putting PB and whole cranberrys in my yogurt too.


OhioRaven on 11/14/2013:
I've been pouring a handful, raw, cranberrys from a bag, into my yogurt cup. I'm going to YouTube right now to see about cooking them.


liza36 on 11/14/2013:
For hunger during the night, have you tried eating right before going to sleep, like 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, some yogurt, something like that? It may help so you don't wake up. That can be so annoying!

RYC: Interesting about your skin clearing up without coffee. You never know what food may be causing something 'til you eliminate it.

Have a great week!

Happy Sunday :) Especially bc we have off for Veteran's Day tomorrow! yeah!

Yesterday was super successful: laundry in AM, followed by quick waxing, stopped off at the flower shop to complete an order for a coworker recovering from a knee replacement at home, massage, got both a car inspection & oil change, 3 hour walk at park, fast dinner near park, weights at gym (around 7pm) & home around 9pm.  So glad to get it all done.

...this morning just gonna relax & read, before Physical Therapy. :-)  Meeting up with a friend in the afternoon & hoping to get to the pool, even though it's not looking exciting with it being so cold outside lol.....but I need to get back into the pool because it's good cardio & gives me a break from walking!

Breakfast: pear 70, cereal (mix of special K with protein & fiber one) 180, almond milk 30: around 300 here.

snacking: more pear (it was actually huge!!!) 100, peanut butter 100.

11am: big spluge for lunch & then dessert: roasted (with lots of oil) brussel sprouts & eggplant 350?, sardines 160, cabbage slaw 100?, chips 150, and then dessert: yogurt and lots of peanut butter 350: 1100 or so. fine.

1600...

banana 100, bread 160, jelly x 10 = 300 cal, peanut butter x 4 = 400 uggghhh. around 950, yeah.

3500 total calories. glad this day is DONE.

1600 + 950 = 2550 already, 2pm, not a good day.

Weight: 127.0

Filling breakfast: 1/2 banana 50, few strawberries 30, cooked cranberries with a lil stevia 60, almond milk 30, special k with protein cereal 240, peanut butter 100: 510. lots of food for little calories!

snacking: more of the cooked (in microwave) cranberries (i cook them completely until they are in a cranberry jelly-like consistency - especially after putting them in the fridge.  they are VERY tasty, a little tart, when you add some sweetener to them.  If you don't wanna add truvia, you can add honey or another natural sweetener or sugar....or equal... 90 more.

Plans: massage...and probably weights later (wanna swim but trying to keep to my plans of weights tonight & Monday night (annoying on my 3 days off but the best ways to get more of the results that i am looking for)

 around 2000 calories. success. exercise: at first I wasn't gonna walk, but then I got it in: 3 miles! and hardly any pain at all! then, full weights. successful Saturday!

middle of the night: 300 more calories. so more likely around 2300. still ok, I probably did burn all the calories by doing cardio & weights....but not great for weightloss. at least happy to have burned it all.

happy friday!

800 cal thru lunch :)

ended up indulging a little. boy am I exhausted. my legs hurt again, enough to keep me from doing any more walking once I got home from work :( 

anyways, 2500 cal. and over the course of the day, I got in at least an hour of walking (extra in AM, but wrong shoes, some at lunch, & back to my car after work!)

1050 after lunch, calories are great, maybe i skip the gym tonight....but i really should go...or if no gym, pool....but really, i need to go to the gym :) but tired....not sure. calories are too good to be true, i will try to keep them low-ish today...

recap: 

around 1900-1950 cal. PERFECT.

exercise: full weights routine (upper body, abs, pushups, and some legs) PERFECT.
