I think the ice baths are helping but not sure. Websites say it could take 4 days which is about how much I have done. Ice isn't so expensive so I am going to keep doing it for awhile. Good thing I don't pay a water bill!! Luckily that is included.

Calories were 2000. Very good. No extra cardio but a very fast and concise weights and abs routine and finally home at 9pm. I did a 10 min ice bath, showering first and just kneeling on a towel in the tub for my shins - keeping the rest if me dry. Works out pretty well.

Goodnight - long day worked over an hour OT.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

Hey all :)

It was a good day. Legs still inflamed but I decided to go to the gym after work for weights! Glad I did because I felt soooo much better after. Gonna be buying ice every night to use for ice baths. I do not like reusing it from the fridge. I also do not have a nice maker. Anyways, it's only $2 for a big bag.

Calories were around 2150. Exercise today was weights.

I iced my legs at lunch.

Good luck with the ice. Have a great evening.

Weight: 126.2

Breakfast: at home - small banana 120, I Meyer lemon 20, 1 regular lemon in hot water 30. Total 170. 2nd breakfast: will be lox on a wrap 250.

it's about 2 cups of lemon water. and I do eat the lemon....it then makes you poop! yep, as long as I have time to relax - around a half hour after drinking & eating the lemon(s). it's helped me so much now that I know what I'm doing with it....and I had a full banana as well first thing in the AM.

I also had a chocolate bar right before work.

body was once again begging for carbs and fat?!

total cals before ride home: 1550

total cals after apple: 1650

BIG dinner: one large meatball with sauce in a wrap - at least 350 if not more...first I had a lot of salad 150 at least with toppings (all healthy). so 500...but then I had some dessert: some chips and strawberries 200. 700, a bit high again.

NO WORKING OUT TODAY. 2nd day of shin soaking in ice water...which doesn't seem to be turning out very well since today I was in so much pain.

total cals: 2350, not the worst. sometimes your body just wants it. pretty decent considering. I did have more fat today than usual, and my body is probably thanking me for it!

Day one of Ice Dipping.  I will try anything.

http://www.tendonitisexpert.com/shin-splints-treatment.html

 

Big breakfast (actually too big but loved eating it) and finally made a good protein pancake. I used the larger sized cooking pan.  I would say the pancake measured around 8 x 8 or something like that and it was pretty thick too!  Tasted great. 500 approx.

Pancake was made like this: spray 20?, I blended egg whites 120, oat bran 60, a banana 140, pumpkin butter 20, and cinnamon: 360...and added blueberries 50 once it was in the pot...later adding some microwaved (and it worked well!) strawberries (turned into strawberry preserves and the strawberries were ripe so it tasted great, no extra sugar needed at all!) 50 and some extra pumpkin butter spread 50: 500 total. a bit higher on carbs but on purpose...I want to have a strong gym workout...this should def work.

Bad snack of carby wrap 100 and then coconut water...later a protein shake heavier than normal total 500 1000 so far before lunch a bit high

lunch: 600 at most

1600, ok!

slight binge but maybe I needed it - yeah right! anyways, the binge was mostly on nut butter and cashews. (3 servings). eating was mostly healthy today, but shin splints are really, really annoying.

2300 cal before binge...followed by around 350 extra cals of nuts.

2650. fine.

exercise: weights.

Today is the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur.  It is really not a happy day, until the meal LOL at the end of the day.  It's a day of fasting (since sun down last night) although I will not be fasting. If you do go to temple, it's probably the holiest day of the year.

On Yom Kippur, most people will say "I hope you have an easy fast" because it's not really fun or a happy day, like I said.  It's a day that we go to temple (if we do, I am not a member of one and most of the time you have to be a member to go on these holy days).  At temple or wherever we pray, it's for god to reprieve us or forgive us of our sins.  By fasting, going to temple, and praying to god on this day, we pray to god to forgive us of any sins we committed in this year - since last Yom Kippur.

I am not very religious at all and am just thankful for it being Saturday. I believe in god and hope that i'll be forgiven of my sins despite not fasting.  Fasting is not to be followed by children, elderly, the sick, pregnant, or people with any other similar deficiency.  I do not fast because I don't feel it necessary in that I have a tendency to binge.

Breakfast: sautéed brussel sprouts 200 (yes a ton), and a big protein pancake: 1/8 cup of oat bran 60, 1 banana 120, egg whites 120, and some spray 20 320, oh, and some extra apple butter 50: 570-600. good. a bit high, but I am not gonna be fasting today on my day off or in general.  I have had an eating disorder throughout my life (mainly it being obsessive not anorexia or bulimia) so I do not really like to fast on this day (Yom Kippor).  Fasting has a tendancy of bringing on binging problems for me.

Snack: yogurt 100

Big lunch of veggies: rest of the brussel sprouts 100 at most, sautéed veggies around 100, left over slaw 50, tons of kale and cabbage salads with dried fruit in it 350 at most: 600 at bit too much LOL on veggies!!! and an apple 50. 650.

1350, too much LOL since it's all veggies I don't feel very satisfied...

(spending time at home relaxing and eating and relaxing more for the rest of the day until later when I go to "break the fast" with family & friends tonight)

We all have our own way of dealing with stuff. Wishing you a great day.


museumgirl on 10/04/2014:
Fasting is a way of control, but if it makes you lose control, its not a good thing for you. You are very smart to listen to your body. and I LOVE brussel sprouts I could eat a bushel of them!


OhioRaven on 10/04/2014:
Wow, your power protein pancakes sound really good.

Happy Friday!!

I will prob get out of work a lil early today for the holiday :)

Early breakfast: lemon, Meyer lemon, banana and a liquid vitamin all around 200

On the way to work: turkey in wrap 300

Snack at work: tea and yogurt 150

650 :)

Lunch:

Around 1750.

Def a bit of a binge around 9:30pm. I think it bc I didn't have any protein for dinner. Binged on the sautéed veggies but then had 3-4 tbsp peanut butter.

Around 2350.

But I did do some walking at mall. Legs still hurting a lil bit.

Overall a nice 2050 all healthy calories.

I ended having a larger but healthy dinner as well as snack after working out. Either way, I did good today.

Also, I would say there is a great possibility that I once again had a good deficit so far this week. Monday thru Wednesday i would say I burned 300 extra each day makin for a nice 900 cal deficit. Maybe I can add to it tomorrow.

Great weights routine tonight.

Monday must have been good for me bit to post! Around 1750 and good exercise.

And today was good with calories around 1750.

But I was sideswiped driving to work. I was doing my business driving in my lane when a guy on my left hand side swiped my vehicle bc he thought he could just enter the lane that I was in! Anyways, it's been hectic but it's working out. I filed a police report late after the fact bc I went to work on time didn't wanna be late (which was stupid if me) bc it was my boss' bday. Anyway, it's all over and done with. Tomorrow is a new day!
