Glad I got some extra sleep last night. Slept from around 9:30pm till 6am...good :-D  I plan to do this most of the week, if I can.  Really looking for some rest, rejuvenation this week. Off to a great start!

Breakfast: creamy oat bran 160 (so good even when made with water wow!) and a greek yogurt 150: 310

snack1: smart balance on hamburger bun: 300...and a lil coffee I think with STEVIA, not equal.

snack2: protein bar 210

healthy lunch: chicken on bun..and probably chips 450 and almonds 600

snack after work: peach, cucumber, and a medium iced coffee with extra skim milk: 160, excellent...

snack: shake 250-300.

total: around 1850 = PERFECT. definitely great. and full upper body workout with a half hour slow walk at lunch. maybe I need to lay off the walking tomorrow a little bit...feeling good though...sleep helps a lot!

damn!!! couldn't sleep. had a tortilla and almond butter. 200 or so more.

2050, still good.

sooo,I balanced out the 2500 cal day. now I just need to balance out the 3150 calorie day, it'll take two more decent days, then i'm back in the clear :-)

 

 

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

Happy Sunday.  Feeling a bit overwhelmed still, wishing I had a nice, long vacation coming up.  Not one in sight, though.  I have 2 sick days and 9 vacation days to use until April (but hoping to be out of this job in December!).  So, I need to reserve them for interviews, etc., with the NYPD.  I want to use some of the days as vacation, yes, but it would be plain stupid for me to use any right now...this week...the rest of this month.  Maybe in August to go to a nice beach area with some friends I may take a couple days.

Breakfast: ices 60, smart balance chunky peanut butter on a wrap. total around 450.

2150 overall. and 4-5 mile walk at beach with best friend...leg is getting better thank god!!!! getting so much better!!! yes, keep it going :-)

(3 days of 2600/per day aberage to balance out....not terrible...)

snack: 250

lunch: 250

snack: 150

total so far: 1450, excellent :-D

off to quickly shower and get to my swim lesson. followed by a drive to Long Island to do an errand for my folks and to perhaps use the Planet Fitness gym for a weights workout since it's so cheap I didn't bother to cancel that membership when I moved...

2150, a good day!

2am snack: smallish banana 120, tortilla 130, cashew butter 100: 350.

2500, decent, but not great considering I binged Friday night.

Happy Friday :-D

well, definitely crappy eating today. healthy, but so overboard. I ate a full bag of 900 calorie chips with dinner. end of a crazy week. I am happy it's the weekend though :-)

calories before dinner: 1850.

calories for dinner: chips 900, lots of dip my boss cooked 200 at least, some other cooked veggies 100, tofu 100. 1300.

3150 or so. not too bad. happy weekend.

***promising myself no sex or hookups this week*** lol sounds crazy...but now that the other one is not going on....a Marine (used to be my bootcamp instructor) and I were always wanting to get together. he is divorced with kids and usually they are with him on weekends. this leaves only during the week. I am not gonna get together with him this week....I don't think...unless I end up taking the next day (probably Thursday) off...hmmm.

I am terrible and I like it.

Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs 140 on wrap 130 with milk 150: 420. eggs were hot and fresh yum. :-)

snack: cookie & protein bar.

My regular guy that i've been seeing was coming by Monday evening to pick up some things he accidentally forgot on Sunday night.  We were texting and it was planned to go for ice cream.  He reached me at 8pm.  He said he was hungry...I realized he hadn't had dinner & told him that I felt bad that I had...but he said it's ok, that we could just get the frozen yogurt (as planned)

...so, i still felt bad and suggested he could get a slice of pizza or something (but that i wouldn't be eating much or at all)...maybe i was being a little selfish but i don't think so as we didn't plan to go for dinner and i had eaten something it was already 8pm...

We drove the couple miles to get frozen yogurt, but it was closed for some jewish holiday bc it's a kosher place...we were surpised. he was hungry, agitated. he mentioned that he didn't want to rent any more movies with me bc i don't seem to concentrate on them...and i laughed, he was joking...but i said, "is that bc we may not get together again!?" i said it out of insecurity, wanting him to just say "of course we will"...he was caught off guard though and changed the direction he was driving...

i said, why are you driving away from the other ice cream shop!? he said, "i'm driving you home!" i was shocked, could hardly debate it...and when i left his car, i didn't even look at him.  i said "adios."

that was the night, he texted an apology, saying he was too harsh. i know i shouldn't get together again...i don't think...with him. thinking it's time to move on bc i was starting to get attached & he was not, just wanting the hookup only.

 lunch: bagel with smart balance and chicken slices at least 450.

V on 07/18/2013:
Did he actually say he was only interested in just hooking up? Perhaps he may want more too and was taken off guard with what you said?? IDK If you have discussed being more and he is not down with that then I can see where you would want to move on.. If you haven't maybe before you tell him to kick rocks, put it out there, it can't hurt.. Anyhoo Have a good evening :)


hollybelle on 07/18/2013:
Oh sorry....Who knows - maybe it was just awkward timing and he was hungry, etc....My husband has to eat every 4 hours or so or he gets very very grouchy. It was even worse when he was YOUNGER. He is very nice and funny, even when his blood sugar is level (LOL)! Sometimes things aren't as they seem, but.....sometimes they are. Your insecurities (and we all have them where guys are concerned--most of us anyway and some of us even after 23 years of marriage) may be getting the in way of seeing the situation as something other than awful. In any event - time will tell. Hang in there. I am of the mind that every "reject" just leave us that much closer to the "keeper". I had to get rid of one that I was pretty attached to (and shouldn't have been) before I met my husband!! Hang in there.

update about the "date" on Monday...

Have a good day today! Yay for sleep! Still kind of wondering what a "horrible almost date" actually is!!! LOL <3


V on 07/17/2013:
Hey I for one do not think that you are selfish..My BF's schedule is all over the place( not only is he a night owl, he owns two art galleries) and so is his meals..

Sometimes I feel like a freak for not wanting to eat as late as he does but he understands and I always make sure he eats when he stays over..He also understands that my Am workouts are non negotiable. I will either nosh on veggies or have a glass of vino with him when he comes over late night..

Anyhoo so happy you got in a good night's sleep :)

breakfast: whole grain cereal 160 with an almond milk drink 50, small banana 100, cottage cheese 90: 400, good.

snacking: milk and protein bar 350

my plan is to skip the pool tonight & come home for a short walk/have dinner or do it in reverse and eat first. read. go to bed early...or it's really gonna be a rough week.  I already didn't sleep well last night...

well, change of plans, getting maybe frozen yogurt with the guy tonight...ok, the night ended before it began. weirdest "date" ever. I will perhaps update soon, it was rather shocking, caught me totally off guard. if I am happy about one thing, it's that i'll be in bed soon.

snack: hamburger bun with some smart balance spread and almond butter. around 300.

total: 2150. good. at least I know I can sleep well tonight & will not wake up hungry.

calorie average, past 3 days = 2266. not great, but decent.

exercise today: 35-40 minute walk.

Weight: 127.0

breakfast: decided to eat a whole bag of black pepper pea chips 420. followed by a hamburger roll 120 with a small banana 120 and almond butter 160: 820, not great if I want to lose weight, but filling?! not sure why I feel the need to set myself up for failure, calories and bloating for sure, but to be better by later...

10am snack: strawberries 130, cooked potatoes/squash 100

12:30 healthy lunch: chicken white meat on hamburger roll with some smart balance spread 300 at most.

1350, good.

who knows, maybe around 2050. good. :-) 2170 (2 peaches around 2am?!)

so, today's calories balance with yesterdays....even better. :-)

had dinner with the guy and watched the movie, which was just ok.  he stayed just a little while after...looking forward to going to work, walking a short walk after, and having an early, very early, night on Monday.  I am planning on skipping the pool tomorrow & would like just a short walk at lunch and after work at home.

Been a strange night.  Up from like 2-6. then back to sleep for a little bit.  I am a little to busy today, hence the sleeping problems last night anticipating today...8:30am I have a dermatologist apt, then I picked up a very unique bouquet of flowers for my parents for tonight and even gave it to them this morning (all of this was about 40 min away from where I live) did a little food shopping at a fancy food store, returned a product to a gardening store, back here for lunch and chilling out/reading, then to the pool for a 45 minute swim class, followed by rest of food shopping, cleaners, back here to change for family dinner back home driving again about 40 minutes there! lots of events for one day. tomorrow is slower & then meeting up for dinner with the guy I have been seeing pretty steadily on mostly weekends for about 4 months now (and we have been seeing each other on and off for 6 years or so sometimes with long breaks..)

5am Breakfast: 600

snacking: 250

850, good so far...but stomach is more than weird bc I am running around, I know, and what I eat...not easy to break my habits.

12:30 healthy lunch: roasted with oil and some honey squash and some chicken breast: around 450.

snack 4pm: white hamburger roll with a little smart balance spread, trying to calm my stomach, so much gas, all my fault but I am so used to eating this way sometimes I cannot stop it so easily....150.

1450, perfect.

dinner: bbq special with family as we are meeting some of my sister's boyfriends Hungarian family here on vacation for the first time...soon he will be her fiancé...very special dinner tonight at my house that I should be getting ready for now :-) big healthy dinner, but a lot. and some dessert.

around 2500 today = success.

around 45 min swimming too :-)
