Still suffering a little bit from the uti but basically peeing pain free. Still a minor pain in my left lower abdomen. Calories till evening: 1450 excellent again. Snack: gonna make it good so that I have a deficit of 400 cal today :) Thanks for all of your kind words :)

ended up having some snapper and carrots and other veggies instead of a protein bar. so even though I had slightly higher calories, they were far more natural. maybe around 350 (don't wanna say 400 lol)

1800, so I burned around 200 cal.  deficit of 200 cal is pretty good.

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

Glad you are starting to feel a little better and that antibiotics are getting rid of the infection. And awesome job on the snapper and carrots vs protein bar!

It's good I am seeing an urgent care dr bc things are not good down there! Bladder now feels constantly full not good, pain when I pee ugh. Tmi sorry.

Breakfast 100, 200, 100. 400

Ends up being a uti infection. Went to work at 9:45 finally instead of my normal 8am and got punished by my boss who had me stay extra late. I actually ended up working more still than my coworkers do in one day. 9:45 till 6:30 with no breaks and lunch at my desk. This is what causes me not to heal. It is much too stressful.

Despite being very uncomfortable and needing to pee more often at work, I went to the gym. Traffic so I got there around 7:30. I think I realized that if I were going to workout with a uti, might as well make it memorable. And I did. It was a strong workout I just skimped on some abs stuff bc when my legs were up above me body it bothered my bladder / uti discomfort.

I didn't tell my older male boss bc it's none of his business. He wanted to know he is nosy. In the end, I told him it's good I went to the dr bc I needed an antibiotic for an infection. And when he wanted me to elaborate I gave him an annoyed look and that was it. He asked me how I was throughout the day and I answered good bc I was so happy I went to the dr and got prescription treatment. Too bad some people think I am taking advantage. A-holes.

Calories till after work: 1400, green tea, apple 100, air head candy I needed a boost 60, around 1550.

After workout a recovery type protein bar all natural vegan. Was good. 250.

A wonderful approx 1800. Extremely proud of myself today.

This balances out Sunday.

So now any calorie deficits for the rest of the week will be counted as real weightloss. Even if it doesn't happy, I will be content.

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

oh no! hope you're okay!

This balances out Friday.

Breakfast / snacking: 2 small apricots & kombucha 120 or so, oatmeal 160, with a little bit of egg whites and flax spray 50, yogurt 100, butternut squash soufflé (it's so good!) 120, stevia: 550, excellent.

snack: coconut water, and Powerbar triple threat "caramel peanut fusion".  the bar has more sugar than I usually choose for my bars and not as satisfying (too much sugar I think) but good hopefully before my weights workout! 250

snack: big iced coffee: around 50 at least.

big snack throughout workout: protein shake, around 300.

1150, good.

Late snack / lunch: around 1.25 lb of roasted brussel sprouts with some oil. 400? maybe more.. and a protein bar 250. and a kombucha. probably having another soon. 730 altogether.

1880, decent, but many cravings.

2400 so far bc of snacking.

around 2450 today. So Friday and today need balancing out this week which also means I will not be losing much weight. And that's fine. I will do my best.

Breakfast: fruit 100, 4% greek yogurt 130, egg whites 60, oatmeal 160: 450, good.

It was a successful day, despite eating too much in the earlier morning.  Proud of myself for sure. thank god for vegetables at dinner (thai sautéed style) in some sauce but so good. with only shrimp and some soup. but a ton, as usual :)

around 2250-2300. big success.

exercise: overdid the walking on beach at a new area I went to with a good friend. legs a bit sore, but taking this day to relax a bit & catch up on everything I need to do (laundry, food shopping, gym....).  I need to be able to relax today for sure..maybe i'll start reading the library book that's been in my apartment over a month that I keep renewing & but haven't started reading yet.

Happy Saturday, Plenty!

tonight I took a break from calories in the 1800s which it would have been and indulged a bit in a high volume of leftover sautéed vegetables. I was hungry and at home and a protein bar wasn't gonna do it. So I had quite a bit of veggies (in some sauce) and then a small cottage cheese with stevia and cinnamon for dessert. followed by a 20 calorie "Kevita drink" google it.   they're cool!  healthier than a diet soda. and like a beer, carbonated, satisfying.

calories are around 2000. small binge I guess u can call it.  5 servings of the butternut squash soufflé and peanut butter. around 500 extra cal. 2500, fine.

I know I burned at least that much.  Lunch included a 30 min walk (legs DID hurt) and at PT I only did the strengthening & stretching, but NO extra bike or elliptical. legs are tired out and inflamed a little.

so, ending the week with 900 calories down. that's good. 25% of a pound, lol. loss is better than a gain!

gonna calculate my weightloss so far this summer:

definitely busy this week.

calories till end of workday 1200 at most.

snack: apple, coffee, small drink: around 250 at most.

snack: small banana and protein bar 300.

1750, perfect.

exercise: 30 min walk and upper body and abs and back!

therefore, i am going to guestimate that i burned 2200 lol so i can say i have a deficit of 500 cal today!

total deficit for the week: i believe around 900 counting Monday, Tuesday & Today. awesome.

Great week!

1500 thru physical therapy. When I get home I may eat something but debating a protein bar for the ride home which is a better get because I am ravenous. Exercise was 30 min walk at lunch minimal pain, 10 min easy bike 5 min elliptical and pt. Good day!

overate after pt because i was craving a piece of the butternut squash soufflé that i bought in the store which is now 1/2 size larger than usual (360 cal). and had some seaweed chips with it 90 or so more.

dinner is more around 2000 cal. decent but no dent in weightloss, which is fine, sometimes you should give your body what it craves & i certainly did that!

still 400 cal down for the week...and very full literally and mentally (too much volume for a late night meal.)  i should go to bed REAL soon.

Great job! Glad things are going well for you at physio, and it sounds like you are choosing some great meals. And you're right - you should definitely give your body what it craves sometimes!


SkinInTheGame on 07/24/2014:
I totally agree! You do a great job monitoring you calorie intake! You can give your body what it craves because you make sure you balance the day - nice!
