Good Morning & Happy Friday!

Breakfast: 2 tablespoons almond butter 200, fiber one 100 with almond milk 30 and a smallish banana 120, really wanting one more tablespoon almond butter...but I will refrain, actually! feels good. as I did already enjoy it before the cereal...why waste calories when I can have it again, tomorrow....making this work..450 cal total, good.

snack: Whole Milk 150, bar 210, 360

lunch: I kinda just want a turkey wrap with mustard...will see if anyone wants to order when at work today...I've had too many veggies and have had the worst gas problems since like Wednesday...where I can't move hardly at all after lunch at work, it's bad.

late snack: maybe almonds on ride home, also cucumber

dinner: LOTS of sautéed spinach, veggies 400? maybe more, but I refuse to thimk about it :-)

1800, gym...

late snack after gym: strawberries, cottage cheese...between 250-300.

total 2250 approx. good! gym was full weights upper body, abs, pushups.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Have a great weekend.

I understand the excess veggie problem... I used to be like that when I first started drinking my veggie juice. It eventually went away.

whoa..thought I updated today already!?

early breakfast 5:30am: healthy, around 580 (roll, avocado, full fat greek yogurt, lots of strawberries, kale chips)....I was home, gave in a little to all temptations :-)

snack 8:30 am : chips. 130

snack: 10am: strawberries & almonds: 200

probably small coffee / drink before gym...need some energy as I am tired.

lunch was really healthy. tofu, quinoa that I finally cooked myself, veggies, 1/4 avocado.

snack: sucking candy, later a bar.

dinner: big salad, extra veggies, chicken...maybe about 400?

1950, good.

up with appetite at 2:30am...100 cal at least of strawberries

2050, good.


took the day off as a sick day as I need to go for mri's of both my lower legs, then to see the orthopedist, and then physical therapy. followed by coming back to my apartment which is going to get power washed / hand cleaned on the terrace to rid it of all the evil the pigeons have left behind! followed by putting up protection against further pigeon attacks! :-) dad will be helping as he works very close by.  he will actually be here in the afternoon, while I am at these appointments.  if it were to be done on the weekend, I would be here the whole time, but it seems there is too much to do for me on the weekdays, so I am glad my dad can help out. luckily, I am paying for someone else to do the cleaning, not my father, I didn't want it to be a struggle.

Oh no on the pigeon attacks! I hope you and your Dad can protect against future invasions. Hope all your visits go well today.

sorry not to update on the guy thing last night!  and now time is ticking... but let me say, it was a different guy from all the other times.  no regrets, ever, as that was my decision!

 update :-)

He IS the assistant at the physical therapy place I have been going to, who gives good massages. Actually, he gave me his card and came over.  We just talked and chilled for about an hour, then he started the massage, and did the entire thing (but felt it felt "fast", not rushed, just his technique....must be bc he had other things on his mind!...things still including me...).  so it was a decent massage, but he did things, subtly, to turn me on, so to speak.  like, when I was face up, he tickled ever so lightly my arms with his nails, which feels good...and went closer to my chest, until he was there...and so on...going lower until he was you-know-where.

I still have to see him, when I go to physical therapy. but I just hope he will not tell anyone at that office, as I will be embarrassed. but even if they find out, that is the chance I took.  I am actually NOT attracted to him. he has a nice body & face, but not attractive in what I seek. he has slightly darker skin, dark complexion, middle-eastern look, and I don't usually look into guys like that. but he was nice...and this was different. but, I must say, the sex and everything else did not feel like much or mean very much bc I am not attracted to him.  I wouldn't even want to date him.  it was an experience itself & I NEVER regret choices that I deliberately make.

breakfast: roll 110, avocado 100, egg/eggwhites 150, balsamic tomatoes/mushrooms 50?, strawberries 50: 460, tasty.

snack: whole milk, protein bar: 150, 210 = 360


lunch: avocado, spinach, tofu, chips.  350 or so.. boss gave me healthy food. believe me, I wouldn't eat it if it weren't good. stuffed eggplant and zucchini with a rice/meat mix. (he cooked, yes!) and some of my food. 550 or so

1400 or so.

snack/dinner on ride home and at home: 2 kirbies 30, 2 tiny yellow peppers 50, 2 plum tomatoes 60, pickled cabbage at home 100, 250 or so. good.

1650, excellent. then swimming, then home and probably a nice snack.

total cal: 1950, good. after the pool, I was shaky, starving....so hungry.  I knew I couldn't wait till I got home so I had the protein bar I had with me. when I got home, strawberries and two glasses of almond milk.

plan: pool, and weights tomorrow AM.

so far so good. trying to strike up the motivation to get to the pool :-D  it's already 7:30pm and I am so pooped but I do always feel better when I go...

calories so far: 1600...

snack when I get home after pool :-) half hour.

decided on no snack after pool. enough is enough. i'm not even hungry enough and bedtime is better.

Guess on my current weight (I will NOT weigh myself anytime in the near future bc it will both upset me and cause a binge I know it) probably around 128-130.
