 The plan: 2pm swim test followed by 20 minutes of my own good swimming. then, legs started hurting as I walked back to my car so I taped them with the sports tape the physical therapist gave me when I got home...snack 100 apple.

1450...

...come home, photo copy some paper work/bills & put in mail. snack....weights....early dinner, relax, bed early :-D

around 2200...with mostly healthy snacks & healthy dinner!

...good advice ladies, thank you...it's true, I am in BIG need of a change in my routine. On the weekend, i'll be going to the city...and next week i'll be in the city 2 days for work, actually (even though it'll actually be a pain to get there, is worth it for the change, I guess!) ....

calories before walk: 1650 :-D

calories after walk not more than 250. :-D

total cal: an AWESOME 1900...that's good & balances out yesterday's 2400 for a 2-day average of 2150.

On other times, I am itching to get back in cardio shape...legs still ****ty, but at least I can walk for 30-40 minutes and not feel too bad at all. so, I walked at lunch for a half hour & this evening for a half hour :-D...walk was fast at times. an hour is great!

My goal isn't to lose much at all if anything, just to get back into cardio shape. it's more important I get into the academy and can be cardiovascularly ready for it than to concentrate on weight loss right now.  I have gained a little, but overall, I am OK with my size. Honestly, it's more an issue of toning for me & gaining muscle mass. Of course i'd love to be really lean again & a size 2, but that cannot take precedence as much as i'd love it, I JUST CAN'T think that way right now.  I MUST get into the academy this year, praying my legs get much, much better....they are starting to!

Another hungry morning :-( lately I am eating too many calories & getting to hungry. instead of going hard at the gym tonight, i'll be taking it easy - just walking & relaxing at home. I will wait to do weights on either Saturday Morning or Evening.  Giving my body some downtime bc I tend to binge when I plan too much and get myself all worked up...might as well do less if it means I will eat less, less stress...

A LOT OF CRAVINGS LATELY, FEELING FAT, UPSET...NOT SURE OF THE REASON WHY I AM FEELING THESE THINGS...MAYBE HORMONES? JUST FEELING BAD...MAYBE JUST TIRED??? ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE? FEELING EXTREMELY UNSATISFIED LATELY...WITH FOOD, LIFE, ETC...I AM OK, JUST FEELING KINDA BEAT..?

Breakfast: 1 small whole wheat roll with an egg 200, one roll with smart balance peanut butter spread 200, cooked creamy wheat bran 150 or so: 550, great!

snack: bar....lately, the coffee is making me break out, I should lay off it....

lunch: turkey on a bun...with regular potato chips.

snack: almonds...later a plum(s)....

exercise will probably be before dinner (which will be healthy, probably tofu & a little bit of veggies & chips.) I consider chips not to be so unhealthy, I count them as my grains...

legcramps on 09/19/2013:
Don't know why you're feeling all those things right now, but it might help to get out and try something new. Maybe rock climbing? Something you've never tried before that benefits the healthy life you're striving for. You're totally worth it, you just need to remind yourself once in a while :)


Umpqua on 09/19/2013:
^^Good advice from legcramps. I've also gotten great results from St. John's Wort. I take it in capsule form but there are also teas. When I'm feeling stressed or down in the dumps I take 1 and it helps to put me on a more even keel. Good idea to take it easy tonight!

Umpqua on 09/18/2013:
I agree about the eggs, they are so filling and such a great source of energy. I hope today's a good one for you!


skinnygrlwithin on 09/18/2013:
I'm so glad to see you including eggwhites! I really do love them... and sometimes I do what you do... mix the eggwhited with one full egg. It gives it a bit of creaminess and fattiness but still stays healthy!


legcramps on 09/18/2013:
Great breakfast!

Keep up the good work! My dad loves sardines, I just can't seem to get into them even though I know they have some real benefits to them.

TGIF! like whoa!

Breakfast: all healthy, 450 cal. includes a banana, bun with smart balance butter and peanut butter spreads (tbsp each), cottage cheese w. stevia, fruit.

snacks: tea / bar

a little overeating, walk after dinner.

around 2600 cal?...maybe even 2700-2800.

sadly, the binge & high calories are from TONS of sautéed veggies, like cups upon cups...fruit...just  a little bit of chips/bread.  it's funny how the calories still add up!

(total also includes late night snack of fruit, special k cranberry almond bar, 2 cups almond milk)
