1350 CAL after lunch, very good!!!

pms-ing a little bit. lately i'm getting my period a week early - at least last month I did...

calories were 2300. yesterday was 2400.

I chose a light walk tonight instead of the gym for weights or pool. was tired...now i'm just gonna read. tomorrow I will probably do weights after work....but if I wait till Saturday morning it would be a better routine, although I think i'd rather just be lazy Saturday lol. ....

Good day so far, but stomach is not and crazy tired/dizzy. maybe low on blood sugar?...i even had some candy.

750 cal before lunch...will try to swim, for a short period, like even 20 minutes, after work. tired...but worth it after a nice weekend.  :-D Happy Monday.

45 minute walk in the evening. 2050-2100 cals. perfect. going to bed so I can have te energy for a good weights routine tomorrow evening!...maybe I will even run into the cute trainer at the gym!

Low Blood Sugar or all that SUN you got this weekend - boy do I envy that beach! Hope you feel better this evening. Have a good one!

V on 08/12/2013:
Sorry you are not feeling well :( Glad you had a nice weekend despite the Marine canceling on you...That is really lame(unless he had a really really good reason)..Have a great evening friend :)

wow....I can't believe I didn't update at all this weekend! well, I guess you can say I spent the weekend quite productively, getting tan, all day each day at the beach.

I even skipped my swim class yesterday for a great beach day.

but why today you ask??? the marine freakin cancelled on ME! I had texted him saying "see you tomorrow at 6pm" last night...and he said, "sorry sweetie, but I can't..." and that was the gist of it. you can bet I will not ever take him up on an offer again to meet up.  I am not upset because I spent the day getting a nice tan at the beach, but this just points out that it is not worth changing around my schedule for a hookup....

so, I actually did weights this AM at the gym. nice walking at the beach too.

yesterday, I did laundry, food shopping, and great day at the beach.

work tomorrow. it was going to be a three-day weekend, but now I have been to the beach sat & sun and don't need to waste a vacation day when I would like them to last until April (and I have 9 left).

Happy Sunday...it is, i'm relaxed and grateful for two nice beach days in a row.

legcramps on 08/12/2013:
Awesome for the great beach days you were able to get in! Not awesome about the marine, but who cares really when you can get your tan on instead?!

TGIF! We made it!  I am a tad nervous for this coming weekend. Tomorrow is a full day at a distant beach that we need an hour's drive and 1/2 hour ferry to get to.  It will be a long day.  She wants to pick me up at 9:30am, but I would rather some relaxation tomorrow morning after a crazy week!  but still good things, i am just getting antsy thinking about everything. :-D

Sunday I meet my Marine Man for dinner at 6pm...will be a long & crazy night...

...followed by Monday at the beach since I will NOT go to work after Sunday night!

...crazy weekend really and too much to think about right now!  I would like to read or something, do some quiet activity...hopefully i can at least fit it in Sunday AM... 

I couuldn't sleep well last night, too amped about the weekend, mind racing & unable to actually think about all the plans. like a fog, knowing i have so much going on, but not knowing how to fit it all in :-D kinda a great thing, but making my mind uneasy for now...but not a big deal, in the scheme oft things :-D happy to have plans...really fun ones! 

Breakfast: fiber one and almond milk: 160, 1 egg and 2 egg whites 120 on a roll with smart balance 130: 410, perfect.

snack: 2 cups almond milk with some protein added, bar 320 or so...

1100 after lunch, great, but my mind is absolutely RACING!...1200 cal and still at work, 5:10pm...ugh...leaving soon thank god! happy friday people!

total cal around 1700 must go to sleep now!

exercise: 25 minutes in pool.

As counter-intuative as it is- getting to the gym will probably revive you! That's what I'm find anyway. Either way, I hope you feel better soon!

accidentally left really small diamond earrings at the pool in a locker. went back this AM at 6am only to find one.  I guess the other one was swept up or stolen sucks, but glad I went to look back. at least they were the REALLY small ones, but a sentimental gift from my parents. glad I found one & that I chose to go back and look. I may call to see if the other is in lost and found, probably not.

I may meet my dad for dinner tonight....he works around here....we shall see.

breakfast: one freshly hardboiled egg 80 on a roll with smart balance spread 140, 2% greek yogurt with stevia and cinnamon 150: around 350

snack 1: iced coffee half reg half decaf? 50

snack 2: bar. 210


lunch: sweet potato chips, sandwich with chicken?

snack: almonds 150

1350 before dinner...


like 2050-2100. maybe less. it was healthy, but big. my dad took me to a VERY unique Chinese catering hall for dinner....yes, I did write that. it's a restaurant but also can be rented out for major parties. it even has a stage, actually, it used to be a diner. and the food is out of this world unique. I ate a lot of sautéed veggies (but really you could tell the place specializes in its meats/fish) so there weren't too much veggies to choose from.  I also had a piece of steak and some fried tofu (didn't realize it was fried until it showed up at the table as I learned a lesson to ask first if it's fried! lol, I remember I wrote this not too long ago about fish at a thai place which was also fried but the menu didn't say so....ask always!)

exercise: 45 min walking thoughout day. :-D

Well I'm crossing my fingers that they have found and kept your other earring, I know it's frustrating to lose something that's so sentimental to you.

MrsD on 08/07/2013:
You are doing so good! YAY! Sorry about the earring!

V on 08/07/2013:
Aww man I am sorry you didn't find the other earring :( Hope you have a good dinner with your friend..I assume it's the Marine? If so I want details!! Hahahaha Have a good evening!

OArecovery on 08/08/2013:
Sorry about that one missing earring- what a pity! Try going assymetrical on the earrings haha that restaurant sounds like quite an experience! awesome :)
