Weight: 126.2

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.

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

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!

So sorry that happened. Glad it didn't ruin your day. Hope the rest of the week is better.

It sure start a day on the wrong foot. Wishing you a better day tomorrow.

Happy Sunday! I am waking up with my legs tingling / burning but it's in a small scale compared to one week ago and definitely 1 month ago. I almost feel that all the walking I did yesterday was good for me - like helping my body get back into the routine I did before I ever injured myself! So even though I am waking up with a tingle and burn I am hopeful that it's more the body feeling better and getting back into the groove than anything else!

Breakfast: plum and cashews and some apple butter around 140...followed by the protein pancake that I made (this time it didn't cook right - the pan was too small and it was too liquidy...but still tasty!)

protein pancake: oat bran 120, egg white 60, banana 120, whipped cottage cheese 100, cinnamon. oh, and some oil spray - 50. so 450. this time I blended all ingredients in the blender before cooking.

so around 600 calories and luckily it was a late breakfast - prefect before the gym!

at gym / on the way: black tea, big banana 150.

1pm big lunch, but tasty and not too overboard: salad, coconut water 50, lots of stir fried veggies and rice (2 packed cups?) some was eggplant  and even some beans - ehh around 500, and one large turkey meatball 200? - total 750, good.

3pm snack: i'll say 150 but it may be more. cooked daikon like 1-2 cups in an Asian sauce and a big apple.

around 2300 today.

this week and thru October my goal is for a loss of 1-2 pounds bc I have gained some weight.

legs only bother me minimally after yesterday's 2 hours picking apples. that is WONDERFUL. so they are getting better.

I even took a 20 min walk tonight.  legs hurt minimally. actually, it's only the left that's bothersome. right leg give me a slight pinge here and there but it's only the left that I need to keep working on. 

this is all good news. Hoping for no pain soon (2 months?).  Then, 2 months after that, I can start jogging.

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

Sorry to hear your legs are still giving you problems but you seem to be coping with it. Hope you have a great day.

Breakfast: two large plums 120, few cashews 50, cereal 150, with a small banana 120, and almond milk 20: 460, good.

Still struggling with my eating today. 260 in chips.

720. And I think I have another uti!!!!! Gosh that sucks so did to the dr I go.

Apple picking was great and the day ended better than it started.

Total cal 2250.

Lots of walking- apple picking and mall over 3 hrs total. Legs were more weak / tied than hurting. We will see how they feel Sunday and into this week.

Finally I cooked a protein pancake like i've been wanting to do for so long!  Happy Friday & day off!  I posted a photo of my breakfast below. 

Here's how I made my breakfast (it was big!) - 1/3 cup of oat bran 160, little less than 2/3 cup water, 1/2 cup egg whites 60, topped with 2 tbsps peanut butter 200, and 1/2 cup whipped cottage cheese (so good, it feels and tastes like ricotta!) 100 and lots of cinnamon.  I mixed the bran and egg mixture together and then sprayed a pot and cooked it in there till the bottom was nice and compact...then flipped it over so the top half had the same pancake-like consistency. It was tasty...still it could be better if I make it more moist (maybe add banana next time blended or apple sauce blended in...to be tried again!).  520, plus the cooking spray which I'm not counting. and some kombucha and liquid glucosamine vitamin this morning. so, at least 550 (not counting any more than this because I'm giving my head a mental break - and more calories to spare for later.

Off for a quick shower before a hardcore weights before I'm hungry again lol!


At gym: small banana and coconut water around 150 Lunch so far tons of cooked greens 150....to be followed up when I get home - ate the greens in my car over 4 cups kale, spinach, cabbage all cooked. Rest of lunch was more cabbage salads and turkey on a wrap with a little spread Total lunch was 650

Snack: 1/4 cup cashews and a big plum. I am so darn binge-y!

1600 cals so far.

Snack: kombucha 100, cottage cheese 100....later cooked cabbage, spinach, and broccoli 350, but def not more

1900 :)

snack in evening:


I have the breakfast plate on my lap & I'm wearing pjs:

Total Thursday was 2650 bc I had an early but big dinner with my folks and then drove home on the late side. I went to bed but while laying there before falling asleep I decided I was hungry. And are a 400 calorie snack of these BBQ lower cal chips, a large plum, and some kombucha. Sucks but this usually happens. At least it wasn't an all out binge, ya know.


Good morning....happy holidays to any Jewish folks :) off today and tomorrow. Couldn't sleep last night so I had a snack around 200 around 4-5am.

8am More snacking in AM: kombucha guava flavor, 4 cashews, more slaw salad, few craisins - hopefully not more than 200!

9am healthy breakfast: hot oat bran 120, half banana 60, Greek yogurt 100, a nut butter mixed with coconut spread two tbsps 200 because I need the fat and crave fats lately. Around 500.

900. Snacking 50

Total after lunch and snack: 1300-1350, good!

Horn_Of_Plenty - Wednesday Sep 24, 2014
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.2

total calories today: 2250 = success, for sure.

total exercise: around a half hour walk.

got out an hour and a half early, so I went to do an errand & drove to several of my favorite food shops on the way home.  I actually picked up too many vegetables. I was hungry & happy that today is the last day of the work week for me - so I totally bought too much food.  eating, well, I ate a huge volume of food for dinner (much more than two heaping plates of prepared veggies and other items).

dinner: all types of prepared cooked veggies (atypical, Asian varieties - ie: cooked daikon - it's a huge radish over a foot long) in an Asian sauce with celery and some kind of ****acki style mushroom; another dish was a cooked cucumber-hijiki seaweed dish which was awesome!....another sampling I got was a mushroom dish in some kinda sauce....and I got more...the other plateful of food was an assortment of cabbage salads - not typical at all....I got lucky on what they had available today! - it's always a different menu)  I had a little more vegetables than listed above, but these are the most exotic. 

I live in a big city, Queens, NY...right near an Asian area...so I get a lot of good food.  I also live near an Orthodox Jewish area, so I get great food all around!! It's not like the country or even small suburbs where the nearest supermarket may be 20 min away.  I have literally over 5 supermarkets less than 10 minutes away.  And most are above average on what they offer.  I just got very lucky on my location!  I don't even live in a wealthy area...I got lucky!  and for a foodie like me, it's great!

ok, so for the vegetables - 500-600. hopefully not more followed by a large plum 50. and some egg white corn chips bbq flavor and they were great. 200. total here: 850 or so, hopefully not too much more LOL. well, that's low calories for all that food = awesome.

 I only eat like this on days when I do NOT have work the next day because of obvious problems regarding fullness...

FIGHTER DIET...that is SOOOO for someone like me. I can't really do it now - maybe I can...but probably not since I'm looking to stay away from stevia - and she uses it a lot because it sweetens bland things like wheat bran cereal. will look into it. 

I have been reading a lot of Pauline Nordin and her Fighter Diet program. I love vegetables just like she does, LOL. and we eat similiarly, without me even knowing who she was until recently.

Legs aren't hurting that much today. I will try to take a short walk outside soon.  At work I worked straight from 8-3:45, no breaks other than lunch at my desk, so it will be good to get up and walk a lil bit.  especially with all this bulk in my stomach!

calories so far: 1950. if I'm hungry, I plan on a yogurt & maybe a kombucha too.

I skipped PT because I plan to go tomorrow.

Sounds like great healthy food. I love living in an area where we have access to interesting and healthy fresh foods. I visited NYC this summer, but didn't get out of Manhattan. We loved it!

2050. Legs hurt minor amounts but during the day. Actually, only the left leg. Right leg has been putting up with everything better and better.

Mile walk at lunch. Upper body and abs at gym.

Successful, healthy day.

I added a Rice Krispie treat in before gym and had a chocolate truffle with my Greek yogurt after. Lately I am constantly craving carbs and fats. Probably not having enough fat.
