Good Morning :-)

So what's the plan? to exercise more, eat less!!! lol, also to have a good weekend!

went to bed at 1am, woke up around 7:30....I will try to fall back to sleep after reading..all morning I was sleeping, on and off, while doing laundry. I was sleeping even at 1pm when my phone went off to wake up & get ready for the swim class!

7:30am breakfast: fruit and nuts 250, followed by cashew butter 200 on a small wrap 60 with a sweet stevia packet thrown into the mix: around 510, decent. I love nut butters...

snack that ended up not being as tasty as I remembered: kale chips pink peppercorn 160

lunch: chicken and chipotle style bean chips: 500, followed by twix cookie bars (boss had given them to me, of course I ate them!) lol 750...blech.

snack: small protein bar 130, probably iced decaf coffee with stevia...200 total

too tired for weights. plan is to swim today at the lesson, some extra before maybe, come home & change and go to the party....

dinner: will hopefully be some sorta bbq something! lol...hopefully a hot dog or hamburger...meat. good stuff. some dessert. very little beer.

sooo....probably around 2200. a good day. swimming was exercise :-)

I got my period a few days early and i'm feeling really beat.

Happy Friday! Feeling a bit like death, but happy it's Friday & excited for the weekend :-D lots of nice plans with nice folks. what more could a girl ask for!? and meeting up with my marine friend Monday evening, good deal...been thinking about it a lot lately... :-)

breakfast: 500; 2 big tablespoons almond butter on roll with couple warmed and moist scandanavian crispbreads for fiber. stevia packet for extra sweetness. and iced coffee, pretty big medium size from dunkin donuts.

snack: 100 half of the protein bar, not hungry, right before lunch around noon. 

1pm lunch: roll with smart balance spread, just a little for the satisfying feeling you get from adding a little fat to the meal...and TONS of cold cuts, mostly roasted turkey, also roast beef. not more than 500. 

1100, perfecto baby!

snack: nuts fruit, maybe around 200 or a lil bit more.

dinner: grilled chicken salad from restaurant, out to eat with coworker, or rather, bringing food back to her apartment.  lots of seaweed salad, salad with dressing, nuts, and scallops. maybe like 700, maybe more.

2000-2100, good.

...If I can keep eating a normal amount of calories, I will lose the weight...also starting to walk again...

10-12PM snack: milk, bar 350

1PM lunch: roast beef on bun, Small plum 400 at most. feeling very fat these days ugh.

4PM snack: /nuts/drInk 100

1300..........NEED TO START EATING LESS.

SNACKS/DINNER: natural granola-type bar, iced coffee which I am having way too much..250 at most.

dinner: chipotle bean chips around 170, tofu 200 or so, pepper 30, plum 50: 450, good!

total cal: 2000, good....can't seem to eat much less than this without feeling deprived.

exercise; half hour swim (with breaks) and some light walking at lunch. good...can't do much more right now.

I think I fell asleep at work today. boss caught me, but no big deal (he does it too! and I catch him...) u see, with little stimulation, and quiet for so long, it can happen quite easily. I am worried by this though, and plan to start listening to classical music with small earphones while I work! will be figuring this out soon!

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 :-)

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.
