Hey. It's 1:11am. I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping during this 3-day week and even now.  This happens when I'm ultra stressed and when my mind/body senses that i don't have enough personal/free time.

I wonder how you manage to do 45 mins of treadmill. I'd be dead of boredom. I normally do 30-40 mins of cardio machines but always in parts... :)

Happy Friday, Ladies :-)

 total cal was perfect: 1950 and extremely healthy with at least a quart of vegetables considering lunch and dinner. actually, i had about one quart plus 2 cups veggies today....lol. and 3 protein bars....ugh. and other things! now that i think about it, i actually had two servings of fruit (lately it is just one, or none...i don't love to have fruit...it tends to make me hungry shortly afterwards...) what else, i did have the 2 cups coffee in the AM. fiber one and almond milk right away in the AM... that's about it today, yup. good stuff. and one sucking candy. oh, tofu with lunch. and a wrap, which i put only some of the ample veggies in. (i had about 2 cups veggies with me)...but boss cooked too! and for dinner, i had leftovers from him...in a wrap with a protein bar...it was at 7:30pm before i drove home, after the gym. :-)

i am happy. joining the gym was the best thing i could do, well, my 3rd gym membership right now lol. it's right next door to work, i also did it last year right around this time, too much traffic during the year when school is in session. and i am lucky, i joined for 6 months, it ends right when summer begins. so i can decide to rejoin at that point...but traffic will be better so i will probably go home to my own gym more often or jog outside :-)

exercise: 45 min treadmill, lots of running, some walking. stretching. and of course my walk to and from work (only about 10-15 min total..., but better than nothing!)

fitness goal: i am now lifting 17.5 pound dumbells for chest flies and bicep curls! sometimes i reduce the weight also....my goal is to get up to 20 lbs (in my mind, this is definitely a "man's" weight...20 lbs rooo ah!)  I like to work out around guys, lifting weights they lift...it's motivating!

early breakfast: 210

late breakast: 230

snack: 230

snacking also: coffee 80

750, good.

lunch: healthy, update later...big

snack before gym that I joined next door to work until end of June during the rush hour craziness when school are in!....chips? big apple 100

dinner: protein bar (sugary type) and protein drink: 400. good.

 exercise: 45 min treadmill and lifting weights for fun (like 10 min lol)

total cal 2100, good.

and skipping rush hour was GREAT! i got home in half the time! 30 min instead of an hour!

B E D

last night, my dad was going crazy, thinking i took is UNDERWEAR (even if by accident when his gym clothes i kindly do when i'm doing laundry...) but really, he was going CRAZY, keeping me up. then i plain couldn't sleep. i maybe got around 5hrs sleep. gah.

well, my boss asked me to come a half hour early for the rest of this week and all of next week. and that blows, since i was ready to ask for an hour lunch, which i will, when this crap of coming early is over...maybe i'll ask to always come early at that time, to have the hour lunch in the future, not this week or next!, gets me out of some traffic, we'll see.

exercise: full weights upper body, 40 min cardio at gym, 10 min walk at lunch, 10-15 min total to and from car. pretty good.

calories: 1950. good.

Hours at work.....sigh! I am lucky that I can work fleible - ish hours as long as work gets done and I am available when someone needs me. My industry is about to implode, though - health insurance. I am pretty glad I am near - ish to retirement (I'm 58)! Only good thing about being older - if I can retire at 60! Good workout! Hang in there.

Happy New Year!!! I have high hopes and goals for 2013.  Mainly, I will start and finish the application process of getting into the NYPD this year.  I will continue keeping fit and exercising. I will be moving out this year, probably the spring/summer, when an apartment opens that I'm waiting for.

And as for my weight, it was getting shakey these last couple months, but I'm keeping my goals and reaching them too! I would like to be 115 again..and it certainly isn'thard to get there. However, no rush, as I'm already feeling panicky just writing 115! lol.

8am Breakfast: fiber one and almond milk, chocoloate protein bar,kombucha: 550 :-)

10:45/12:30snacks: 2 bars, one before and one after boot camp. first bar had a nice amount of fats, carbs, proteins all natural, 250cal and second bar more proteins and fats, around 230 cal

2pm late lunch: wrap with some sardines & veggies 250, yogurt  greek 2% with added chia seeds i bought from the vitamin shoppe 150: 400, good!

1550, very good :-) (while cooking a 2 different stir-frys, i tried some yummy!)

4pm snack, decided to fuel up before long walk outside, very HEALTHY bar...only nuts and seeds :-) 250

early dinner, early to bed!: cooked veggies 100, tofu 100, kale chips 160, pita 100

2260, good.

Ditto @ Kat's comment.. No need to stress about it my friend, you will get there :)

12pm snack after workout: very bad, rest of that coffee (decaf!), some pickles!, was driving around...(no calories to count over here)

1:30pm snack in mall: another decaf! so bad, oh well. yes some water during day too. and finally a sugary clif bar, what i needed after that workout (which was tough and nice, i felt so good after!) 300...oh, and i sampled some frozen yogurts lol...so 400 total.

3pm late lunch: wrap with sardines and sauteed veggies, and more sauteed veggies.  550 (an egg too)

prob around 2300 cal, nice.

exercise: fanastic - bootcamp and about a 1.5 hr walk

around 2200 today. best of all, VERY healthy. i did have 3 medium coffees from 7-11, but tons of veggies, and nice, healthy proteins including fish and eggwhites...an overall good bounce back from last evening.

tomorrow, i start bootcamp again for an hour in the AM :-)

today exercise including over 4mi at the park and a lil more walking at mall. maybe 5 mi total, good. i would like more, but in this weather, it's not enjoyable.

also, full weights routine upper body, and some legs too, at the gym. i was there about 1.5 hours. also good.

i did well today, spending it out of my house!

weight has remained right around that is currently posted. maybe higher at times, but in the AM, on a good day lately, it is this weight. :-)  In the New Year, I am breaking my fear of returning to the teens. 115 lbs all the way this year.

6am breakfast: lots of fiber one with almond milk and cinnamon 300, bar 200, tea with so little almond milk - practically zero lol. total: 500 - excellent.

splurge day...2700 so far.

3000 cal.

no exercise...i didn't plan well :-(  (i knew bad weather would be coming after 12pm, but i did errands instead of exercise, then went to see my grandma. I was exhausted and ate all afternoon/eve, going to bed very early)
