Weight: 127.0

Home the whole day, mostly laying on couch in major effort to rest my legs.  Raining all day, so I do feel less bad about this waste of a day!  Also, got my hair done and can't get it wet at all, so thankful that I'm indoors and don't need to be out....just did laundry, the seriously ONLY activity of any physical movement I've really done besides walking around this apartment!  I may need to do this one day a week, but prefer not to, on the weekend(s) for awhile.  Hoping things start getting better. Today should help, for sure.  Then, once again, less planned walking on weekends.  No extra physical activity with legs right now - no swimming till February / March, earliest.

6am Breakfast: approx. 500, good.

8:30am snacking: sautéed string beans in olive oil & blackberries: around 100.

10am snacking: 250, fruit, almond butter, peanut butter on small wrap

11:00am early lunch: veggies / fruit & peanut butter and cooked cranberries on an English muffin. 350

snack: fruit / lots of cooked veggies / couple almonds 150..and more banana...ah, 200.

4:15: snacking: veggies: 100

Grand totals: 2050 cal. NO exercise. mostly vegged on the couch, not proud of it at all. but doing what needed to be done - which is NOTHING.  I do NOT like this lifestyle one bit (sitting around not walking....)

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

6am Breakfast: high on the carb end, not very satisfying. 500. low sugar cinnamon swirl oatmeal, cooked cranberries, low sugar peach yogurt, almond milk and kasha cereal with protein...you know what, not enough fat in my breakfast is probably why I am hungry by 8:30am.

8:30am: bar and fruit 180

total around 700....and off to the gym.

9:30am coffee and felt so sick (too much fiber, messed up stomach)...so didn't go straight to the gym at all! 50

10:45/11am: 2 egg wraps from dunkin donuts around 350 (2 eggs, 2 small wraps, 1 slice cheese, 1 serving bacon slices)

after workout: shake 200 (half banana, one scoop lean body protein and lots of water / ice)

5pm early dinner: veggies sautéed and cooked 300 at most, chips and turkey 200 or so. 500 good ones...

1800....and blackberries..

prob no more than 1900 calories. major success. i probably burned at least 2200. nice job.

Happy Friday....I planned to take today off but change of plans....going to work. I cancelled my hair appt for a keratin & cut. hopefully I can get it on Saturday. If not, i'll be waiting several weeks/months and just wear my hair up, everyday, for awhile - instead of blowing it dry / ironing...and destroying it further. i'll let it grow out more. (or maybe get it cut on the 14th...) lol.

breakfast: 200 cal - yogurt, flax, cooked cranberries

2nd breakfast: egg/kale/sautéed carrot and one egg and turkey on wrap: 250 or so.

450. good.

snack: bar / tea 200

lunch: don't even want to think about it. it was decently healthy.

calories before dinner: nice 1100.

early, pretty healthy dinner: around 500.

snack:  decaf coffee, cooked cranberries, bar. around 250

total: 1850.

exercise: NONE. now, I could have gone - could have come home & got my bathing suit for the pool.  The reason why I didn't is NOT because I am lazy at all.  It's because my legs are not doing well. They hurt (shins).  And even when I got to the pool, it aggravates them. So, if I am to get into the academy, I need to stop overdoing it. So, I'm home. Not happy about skimping out on exercise & feeling lazy indeed.  I did abs/upper legs last night.  And tomorrow morning I'm doing upper body weights.  Since I'm skipping pool, there's really nothing left for tonight except to lay low and not overdo things. stinks really.  feeling like a blob. but, gonna get a real nice haircut tomorrow afternoon after the weights...and feeling super psyched about it. just have to get through Monday without washing it...lol....gonna be embarrassing at work hahaha.

This is Wednesday's entry:

12am Wednesday. woke up with appetite: soy crisps 150, peanut butter and pumpkin on a muffin 250: 400. eh.

8am breakfast: apple 80, wrap 80 with one egg and one egg white 100, pumpkin 60 = 320, good...(and satisfying)

1900 cal with early dinner at 4pm.

snack: yogurt, flax, cooked cranberries 250 :-)

2150. probably it for the night.

exercise: great upper body routine.

once again, bc of the pool, my legs are too sore. this is really getting annoying now.  Perhaps my legs will never be the same again...and if that's the case, no police academy. I have till June to work on this.

Early meal: persimmon (fruit) and some butternut squash and an herbal airborne honey lemon tea/hot drink. 100

breakfast: egg, squash, turkey on English muffin

snack: coffee / bar

lunch: 300 or so.

snack before gym at 2:30pm: canned pumpkin with stevia & plain greek yogurt with stevia. 200

snack after gym: 1/2 banana and 1 scoop big protein shake 200-250

HUGE dinner: tons of cooked veggies, just tons. and then a small egg white wrap. all was tasty. dinner was a crappy cookie dough protein bar. at least I am satisfied now!

2200 or so. success.

exercise: abs/legs at gym. then the pool, although my legs did hurt a bit by then. but did a little bit - 20 min in pool. overall I feel ok. glad to be home early (around 6:00) and resting for the night. tomorrow's plan is for a heavy duty weights routine (upper body) and resting the rest of the day. maybe drive & get a movie...we'll see...also re-reading paperwork for the NYPD and trying to get into that mindset a little for the whole interview process coming up on January 13th.  gotta start preparing myself - with my day-in / day-out work schedule and little time to decompress, I need to start thinking towards the 13th now...start preparing my mind and body for that day - because it is so different from what I'm doing now.

my legs are so crappy, but getting better thank god. I want this soooo bad. I want the NYPD. now I just gotta get myself there.

There is a small physical test on the 13th.  I have been researching on the internet. it includes some squats and getting into a room with 20 or so other women and stripping down to underwear? that's what I read. to do some squats and for the supervisors to see if there's any reason to take anyone out of the running for NYPD. I am a little scared for this - although I can do it all I know, just can't hold up cardio-wise for long periods.

7:30am Sunday Breakfast = fruit 100, oatmeal with almond milk 200, yogurt 150, pita with peanut butter 250 = 700. was darn gooood. little too many carbs, though.

10am healthy eating: cooked bok choy 50?, cooked acorn squash 20, 1 whole egg 70, 1 egg white 20: 160 or so.

850 approx. - good. the goal for today calorie-wise is what my goal is on ALL days off - stay below 2200.  :-D  I cannot punish myself by making myself hungry on a day off, lol, I just can't! During the week, I will try to keep lower calories (around 1800-1900) on Monday & Thursday.

weight management goals for these upcoming weeks:

this week: 3 days of work. (mon, tues, thurs) Monday pool.

Tuesday lower body weights/abs.

Wednesday upper body big weights routine (gym is open on Christmas!). 

Thursday may have to work late, lower body weights/abs or pool

Friday off - big weights routine in morning followed by afternoon getting my hair kertain straightened. 

Saturday / Sunday lay low on big exercises bc I will have the keratin in my hair.  I should get a massage on Saturday.  I can't sweat or get the hair wet for 3 days (which is ultra annoying but so worth it in terms of easy styling for the next 3 months). 

Next week 3 days of work (Mon, Thurs, Fri)

Monday night I can wash it & then do a big weights routine (probably the plan).

Tuesday I can go to the pool / do abs.

Wednesday night I can do a big weights routine (upper body).

Thursday light legs/abs.

Friday pool. ???

God is blessing all of us today! 60 degrees this beautiful sunny day, December 21st.  It's like a "staycation" how nice, what a treat after all the cold!

8am Breakfast: persimmon 100, cinnamon swirl oatmeal 160, yogurt 150 - approx. 400

10am snack: peanut butter on small high fiber wrap and leftover sautéed/grilled squash - 250

12pm snack: iced decaf - big size. 100?

1pm snack: chips 150 (holding off to have a late lunch with lots of veggies and turkey cold cuts)

big lunch (mostly veggies) - turkey 50, pint cooked broccoli 50?, pint cooked cabbage and other veggies 100, cooked summer squash with littlest bit sauce 100, pita bread 150 450, good!

dinner: out to eat with friend, healthy. up to 600, def not more.

snack bc I wanted it: small granola bar 160

total around 2100, good!

probably walked overall at least an hour with errands. legs hurt a little tonight, but nothing major, thankfully.

today is a REST day. only exercise is walking while doing errands. loving the weather and glad I did weights last night. Due to my period as well as a high intake of caffeine lately, my skin is not as nice as it could be.  I will have to watch it closely this coming week & have good habits in these next two weeks because along with my medical is a pre-screening interview for the NYPD academy on January 13th. yay.
