(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.2

I have been watching calories closer and dieting in a way to lose weight since approximately Monday May 12: I don't weigh in & didn't lose crazy weight. But, it has been nine weeks already.  I have lost around 2.3 pounds (going by calories burned, not the scale).  I do notice things fitting better, but I'm definitely not a size smaller since my clothes were already tight before lol. All weeks have been successful, except for two.  so, 7/9 weeks were weightloss. This is good. Proud of myself for keeping tracking & looking back.  Now I can proceed with more enthusiasm, knowing that  I WILL get where I want to be!

Good Morning! Happy Sunday! Still debating the gym this AM.  I know I will be going to the beach later, too. We'll see...I'll be leaving soon for the gym if I do decide to go.

Tasty Breakfast: big plum 50, oatmeal 160 with egg whites 60 and a greek 2% banana on bottom yogurt 120, stevia, peanut butter 100: 500 - good! 

snack: iced coffee 100 at most.

snack: protein shake, 300 at most.

healthy lunch at beach, mostly veggies: 500 at most.

light but huge dinner: tons of sautéed veggies on 1 full bag of butter lettuce, around 300, great. will snack later.

evening snack: strawberries, plain greek yogurt with cinnamon, stevia, nut better, and a light and fit chocolate raspberry yogurt with added stevia. 300

2000 cal, perfect!! midnight, actually it really was midnight!, snack: 250.

total today: 2250, decent for sure! and I did a lil walking at beach as well as upper body workout at the gym!

 

 

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

Friday calories till end of workday was 1200 at most.

calories after work: iced coffee and small yogurt, 200.

dinner: at most, 500.

total: 1900, good.

no real exercise, but that is ok.

taking a break, tomorrow will be leg exercises at PT in the morning, then my friend's baby's 1st bday at the park! should be a nice change of pace in the sunny weather :)

I have a week off from work now, to be used with good eating, no unhealthy big binges, and a LOT of relaxation.  I do have a trip with my friend and meeting up with family to go white water rafting, but it's really a fast trip. Two nights, one day.  Just taking it day by day!

Today ended up being 2300, still decent.

calories still a little high but with my period and all, I've been feeling extremely sluggish and almost craving sugar like I really DO need it - lightheadedness and all. so that's what I've been doing. today I had a small wrap at lunch, went outside and got Italian ices. i'll probably do the same tomorrow!

calories around 1900, good.

exercise: 30-40 min walking at lunch, not skipping anymore.  leg pt (also 5 min bike and 5 min elliptical)...laying off abs exercises probably till the weekend.

Felt horrible all day. Got my period early which I am overjoyed about since I won't have it on my vacation and trip!!!!!!! Yay!

Calories are higher and that's fine!

Around 2200.

Almost skipped the gym but instead had a great workout. :)

No cardio today.

Probably around 2250. perfect.

exercise was a full upper body (no abs) and back.

also, WALKING at beach (on the hard sand by the water) for around 45 minutes I think (forgot to time it), no pain in right leg at all. Left leg still minor pain that is a heck of a pain to get rid of, but so much better.

things are looking good for me lately with the legs. so happy about this!

(successful weekend, calorie-wise!) nice.  now, I am going to do well this last week, before my vacation!  I have a week off from work starting on the 14th! and I come back Tuesday, the 22nd!  I will be staying home.  I have a big concert planned (Bruno Mars in NYC at Madison Sq Garden) and the beach, of course. Also, I have a friend's baby's 1st bday to attend & will visit at least a couple different beaches during the week. I'll be continuing physical therapy & plan to incorporate strong workouts at the gym. Last time I had a week off was January, 6 months ago.  Really looking forward to it!

Glad to hear things are looking up leg-wise! What a great workout, walking in the sand. I hope this week goes fast for you!

Change of plans today, no beach but going to a BBQ in the evening.  instead, i'll go to the gym & do some extra ab exercises that I forgot yesterday and also most of my leg exercises that I would do at PT. I don't mind relaxing all day & I plan to tan on my terrace in the afternoon when the sun is fully shining on it.

Today I am doing laundry, will catch up a couple bills, and just relax.  There's no need to rush around all the time and I am thankful for a slow day.  As much as I wanted to go to the beach 2 days in a row, it's better I let my body fully relax and rejuvenate a bit with the slow pace here at home.  Yes, I am serious!  It's been a long time since the days I was a student & teacher, with ample days off.  So really, in all honesty, I fully welcome this slow, relaxing, 3-day weekend!  If I want to, I can work on my terrace today, also.  I need to remove some pigeon spikes that weren't helpful.  The were applied with crazy glue, so I will have to see if the product I bought from Home Depot does the trick!

Breakfast: 400 tasty ones.

Snack: around 120 I think.

snack #2: big portion of cinnamon weight control Quaker oatmeal (all the flavors in the weight control box are sooooooo good!) cooked with a 1/2 cup of egg whites which just makes the oatmeal bigger! awesome, and one container of Fage fat free greek yogurt with 2 packets of stevia. total here is 310, very filling and awesome.

around 850, excellent.

around 2250-2300. excellent.

exercise was a little abs and most of my leg pt exercises done at the gym.

Oh Happy Friday! Happy 4th of July!

Been a good day. Letting myself indulge a little & feeling good about it :)

Breakfast: 450.

Snacking: Dunkin Donuts iced coffee 100, protein shake 300.

850, good!

big, but healthy lunch: cucumber salad around 50, seaweed salad around 100, bok choy and lettuce 50; low sodium chicken on a pita 200, indulged in 2 servings of cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits 250. total here: 650, very good. satisfying, too. I've been reading about how competitive eaters train, by expanding their stomachs 1-2 weeks especially before competitions, boy does this make sense! lol. I ate so much, I am very full, but almost feel good about it.

1500 so far, excellent.

....fell asleep after lunch, planned to nap and could hardly wake up from my alarm clock.  I slept around 25 minutes :)

snack after nap: big plum and iced tea. around 50.

1550, perfecto so far!

total around 2250 = perfect.
