Happy hump day! Flat tire and dead car battery so this morning I am at dunkin donuts next to the car repair shop all very unexpectedly and waiting for the two new tires to be delivered and battery replaced before heading to work. I found this all out when I went to drive my car this AM to work my tire was flat. Coincidentally the battery died as soon as I reached the repair shop. Both front tires are as old as the hills and the flat one couldn't be saved anyway. So $150 for the car battery and $200 each for the tires. $550 total. But I am relaxing at dunkin donuts reading the paper. Oh and definitely gonna fill my laundry card back at my housing complex office that is only open during business hours before I head heading to work. You better believe it! Usually I just mail them the card and check but doing it in person is better. Calories are great. 450 so far. Iced green tea and hot decaf coffee. Breakfast was my low sodium chicken wrap with light butter spread on low cal wrap and also the hot water with lemon and stevia.

total cal: around 1800. great, considering.

did leg pt.

burned around 1100 this week (3 days)...good!

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

Hey all :)

650 cal in AM.

Lunch was a big soup maybe like 250? And small wrap around 250

I had a fantastic weights workout at the gym ending close to 9pm and stayed up a lil late chatting with a guy online that I know. I walked at lunch luckily and tried to stretch my legs multiple times during the walk to loosen them.

1600 total

Already down around 900 calories this week! I got this :)

BIg plans for today...to accomplish a hard core upper body workout at the gym, pick up tampons no matter what lol, and go to the beach.  but with the beach, I have to be ready by 12pm because that's when my friend is getting here. If I get moving now (8am) I will not even have to rush :) and I can enjoy a great gym workout!...so that's what I'm gonna do :)

Breakfast: oatmeal & few bites of banana 200, yogurt 100, and hemp seed butter 50: 350. probably iced coffee. 100. 450.

snack: protein shake smallish...around 200-250.

700 :)

snacking at beach: veggies / fruits / turkey wrap with some buttery spread. 600 at most.

1300 perfect.

dinner: OLIVE GARDEN! around 700 prob.

total cal: 2000. CAN WE SAY PERFECT!?!?!? I did it!

hallelujah. I did it. 2000 calories on a weekend day. cheers. I am proud of myself. I guess with proper planning and scheduling, it can be done. being busy and being around friends helped.  also, I brought a TON of vegetables to the beach. that helped too!

as for exercise, it was full upper body weights at the gym....and around a 20 min walk once at the beach...as well some walking at the mall lol. like 20-30 min..we stopped there quickly on the way home :)

1900 at most. excellent. walk at lunch and leg exercises.

I plan to lose weight this week!  :)

goal is to get to around 124 soon....like around the end of this month!

for the week I averaged around 2200 cal per day (from Saturday thru Friday today).  I plan to do a heck up a lot better starting tomorrow.

I plan to lose around a half pound or so.  I want it badly.  Never give up, it's not worth it.  Sometimes I forget this....it's easy to drift off sometimes....but we can also get back on track as long as we try.

happy thurs :)

350 cal :)

700 or so before lunch.

lunch around 600 (healthy, natural, including small piece salmon, rice, lots of sautéed veggies) felt good to eat right....will be forcing myself more often!

snack after work: around 200

1500...

snack after gym: around 320-350

1850 = more perfect than I could get!

I worked TWELVE HOURS at my desk job and got to the gym close to 9.  I was home at 10 and I'm happy I went. tomorrow is fri and that makes me even happier even if I don't get much sleep!

2262 cal average for Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

and the plan for the weekend even after a week without much sleep is this: MAKE MORE PROGRESS IN MY WEIGHTLOSS.  This weekend I have a good goal. 2000 calories on both Saturday & Sunday...will try my darndest :)  as for Friday, my goal is to keep it lower around 1800-1850.

goodnight!

1850 cal including a half hour walk at lunch and leg pt exercises.  got home early so had lots of veggies and tofu instead of a bar for dinner.  I ate a lot, but kept it reasonable only 100 cal tofu & several types of cooked veggies with some sauce.  around 400 altogether.  I needed it. and I feel much better. even though I ate a lot, I see myself sleeping well tonight because I could use some good sleep :) 

I am already looking forward to a great weights routine tomorrow night, too.

calories between the 3600 sunday, yesterday & today balance so far to make 2400 cal per each day.

So no real weightless this week as I will be balancing out my overeating all weekend.

1650 today is super :)

Saturday is balanced out. Now gotta work on what happened Sunday. 3600 is a lot to balance.

Ah, the weekends always get us!


SkinInTheGame on 06/02/2014:
Weekends need to be the cheat days because they lack structure!

I always get to that point on a weekend day when my resolve is tested!

But you watch yourself very we'll!

I like the way you tick and tie things!
