(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.0

between 2000-2100. I was aiming for lower but gave in tonight at dinner. It was all healthy, just bigger portions. got home a bit late, I think I was extra hungry.

exercise: half hour walk at lunch...but also walking to & from my car (prob 5 minutes each way, but not more).

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 04/22/2015:
I need to walk at lunch time. I'm having trouble finding time to fit in 20 minutes after work.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/23/2015:
yeah, it's better for me, too, at lunch. because, then, whenever you leave, you've at least done around 20-30 min of walking for the day - which is far better than sitting the entire workday :) the benefits are endless. even if I come back a little sweaty :)


Umpqua on 04/23/2015:
I'm sure it's nice to get out and walk at lunchtime - just to escape the office and get some fresh air!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/23/2015:
it is always nice, even in winter when I freeze! it's the best :)

Woke up with some cramping in my thigh around 1am so had a banana with blueberries and water. 150 cal.

I think the calories were 2000? ( I forgot to write it last night...)

Hope you where able to go back to sleep and had a restful night. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
Yes, it's been a pretty good week so far, sleep-wise.


Umpqua on 04/21/2015:
I hope the cramping subsides for you and you have a better day today. It sounds like you had a really nice weekend!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
thanks Ump! Feeling much better now. and you are right, the weekend was nice and relaxing - and happy to get the longer walk in! Gonna try for usual longer walks on Sundays, I think :)


thinnside40 on 04/21/2015:
Meg woke this morning w/aching back behind her knee. She's pretty active, but did 1.5 hour zumba class in the park on Saturday. Thinking pulled muscle and gave her a note for P.E. today.... Hope you gt some much needed good rest tonight!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/22/2015:
I hope Meg feels better...love all your pics above with the eggs...your entries are so cool - especially bc they give me a picture into a life so different than my own! thanks for giving us the chance to see it!

Crying on my ride home, not bc I am upset, but feeling very exhausted. There are no words to describe how it feels. Legs hurt a little bc I used them more yesterday but not for that. All morning at work I had to stand at my desk in very unnatural - bent over my desk - positions. All morning. So, glad I don't have to exercise today.

Overall around 2350. No exercise.

Today is a new day & I am thankful for that! Last night was a struggle, and I realize it's because of the strong coffee I had yesterday, at 5pm.  However, I'm not letting that ruin today. It's beautiful & sunny. I will do a weights workout in the morning & then go to the park later.  Will probably buy mostly prepared foods for this week, but that may change. Looking to spend time outside the apartment today & maybe on the phone with the same friend I met up with yesterday....

I may actually go to a bargain store to hopefully find shirts that are good for work but also good for walking at lunch - those stretchy fabric shirts that are usually very colorful, loose, and you don't see sweat easily on them...they would be perfect for walking & for work...I was in Macy's yesterday, but they didn't have any I liked. In all honesty though, I don't see myself going to the store today...

Breakfast: grapefruit around 100, fried egg 80 with 1/2 avocado 160 and some sea salt, on a wrap 100. around 450, good. just waiting for it to digest a bit, then going to the gym.

Gym: small bananas 2 - 220 After gym: quest protein bar from 7-eleven 200 870, excellent.

I have all the reason to make this a good day. I really do, food and exercise are good. Will be trying hard today not to fall apart and mess things up :)

Going to store to pick up food for the week. Then relaxing a little and off to the park I think. Snacking on veggies: 80? 950...

Kombucha 50 1000 Vegan protein bar 250 1250, good so far.

Really good.

after walking: fruit bar 100, 1350

dinner: 500 cal of chicken breast with skin, 1/2 cup fried rice leftovers, brussel sprouts.

1850 total, perfect. balances yesterday.

I had a good, productive weekend calorie-wise, exercise-wise, and seeing my best friend socially. all is good.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 04/19/2015:
Have a Good Gym.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/19/2015:

puddles on 04/19/2015:
It is good to see you in a up mood. You seem to be doing real good and I wish you a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/19/2015:

2050 cals. Another very tired day.

30 min walk at lunch and hardcore weights but I think I skipped some abs stuff and one upper body workout - too tired. But everything that I did do, I did well. Extra carbs before and after my workout.

btw, everything has been sorted out with transferring my old retirement system money to my new one! YAY! the money has been transferred!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Sleep was slightly disturbed waking up several times and having a banana at 2am. Anyways happy Monday. I may have to work late which is ok. At least I am prepared food-wise for most of this ENTIRE week! bought MORE Food tonight. I practically have too many veggies - they will last me thru the weekend!

Calories from 2am and wake-up at 6am around 150 - lemon water and banana.

1250 or so cals by end of workday.

worked late, which was a good thing diet-wise, but not stress-wise.

50 more calories in kombucha. and TONS of cooked brussel sprouts along with some other cooked veggies. not much sauce at all. maybe around 200 at most.

1500 cals, perfect. way to go.

I guess I can thank my boss for the FABULOUS calorie count.  Tomorrow I will kiss up to him a little, tell him I do not like eating dinner out or something...he asked me to have dinner with him. :( and of course I didn't want to - I don't even go to dinner with my friends during the week! and hardly even on the weekend lol...my best friend and I usually order in. only with groups lately do I go out to eat haha.

exercise: 30 min walk :) actually, more like 20 minutes, was lazy at lunch.
