Happy Sunday :) Planning to visit my best friend in Westchester (haven't been there in months & months!!!) like, seriously, maybe in over a half year....she ALWAYS comes to me lol, especially in summer because I'm on the way to the beach.

150 calories from last night 3am eating yogurt.

breakfast: tried for more carbs (which really don't satisfy me, but I am hoping they give energy for going to the gym?  high fiber cinnamon oatmeal made with coconut water 220, 1/2 banana 60, egg whites 60, at least tablespoon of coconut butter 100: 440 yum.


..I keep thinking to do gym tomorrow morning instead of today but I KNOW that it's better I knock it out today & relax tomorrow...I should try to keep a set schedule for gym as I've been slacking lately big time.  I haven't been to physical therapy since last Monday & I am still not sure it was worth skipping the rest of the week...who knows.  At least I can relax more.  Maybe I should do laundry this morning & gym tomorrow?  That would be more relaxing than rushing to the gym....?

calories at lunch: 650?

1350 :)

snack: small bar 130

dinner: lots of cooked veggies, new place soooo good in sauce though & some shrimp cooked perfectly.

calories: around 2250 :)


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

today's a new day :)

gonna spend it at home, relaxing, maybe sleeping more. I did get a lot of sleep, at least 8 hrs probably more like 9.  took a sleeping pill, again. but did wake up in middle of the night, thirsty.

8am breakfast: granola bar 160, skyrr brand yogurt 110, 1/2 banana 60, banana oatmeal 160 and egg whites 60: 550 or so. good!

also planning to get my nails done.  I have a party to go to that starts at 2, probably will leave here around 1:00pm. excited!

Snacking: 100 cal bar and 100 cal cooked Chinese veggies...more veggies..100

early lunch: 300

another yogurt ...1250.

exercise: none, but did stand on my legs a bit too much at the party yesterday. I'm ok though...legs still giving me pain and I actually realize I got a burn on both my legs from wearing the pain patches too often, so taking a break!

total calories: around 2250, good.

finally met up with my hot coworker after work. :) beautiful. got out of work early, at 2pm.

Food thru lunch: 1150, good.

after meeting up with him, ate to fill some sort of void, it was all healthy, but a lot. I picked it up on the way home: Asian style cooked daikon (a root vegetable) a ton and with sauce so maybe 300?, then cooked broccoli (the only healthy thing) but def some salt :) 50?, tons of cooked cabbage also some oil involved 300?, and cooked spinach 100 at most (trying to think if I forgot anything!) ...I think I am averaging this high (could be much less hopefully!) like I said, when you add in cooking sauces, you never really know with calories.  as we know with salads, dressings and sauces can make something once healthy very much not. but tasty none-the-less!  anyways, about 750 at most I'd say!

1800....I may not go to physical therapy tonight. I think I will take off from it till next Wednesday and just relax at home. yeah. but I do feel majorly lazy, so maybe after I sit a little bit (just showered) since I feel so darn full, i'll go. maybe just read a little first.bn

guessing around 2300, good. maybe a hair higher

exercise: NONE.

full and a bit bloated upon getting up since I had a lot of food last night at home after work. it's fine though as I was able to get a full night's sleep after taking a sleeping pill.  I was in bed probably around 8:30 and slept all night. wonderful. tonight I do plan on the gym and a great upper body routine (better than coming home and eating again all night)

breakfast: 400

snack: bar 250


lunch: tuna wrap, banana 350 at most.

snack: almonds: 100


dinner: turkey wrap, water, plum 350 at most.


another banana at gym I am sure 120

and after gym a granola type bar

even though already bloated, slight binge on lots of tasty veggies and veggie salads from nearby key food. damn they are getting really good with their deli sections! there was a citrus kale salad....not sure how they got the leaves so sweet, hopefully it's not so many more calories than originally guessed. anyways, lots of food. and when I said a lot, I mean it.

no planned exercise, legs bothering me a lot. I skipped pt to come home and relax, ended up binging but no so bad. at the end, I had 3 servings of tortilla chips...but still, that's ok.

around 2300-2400. and bed early I hope.

2050. but still sorta snacky...maybe a lil kombucha type drink...
exercise was basically a full upper body and abs routine...also some walking at beach and legs are doing a lot better, minimal pain in the left leg and right leg is almost fully back to working order.  so glad my legs are being able to handle more & more...I can get there! gonna get into the NYPD next summer :) if I stay positive and attack my goals...!

Thankfully I didn't overeat past 2250 last night :)  The sleeping pills that I took are a little strange. They don't get me to fall asleep, just make me more tired than usual.  but they did keep me asleep once I actually went to bed (which was like 3 or more hours after I took them).  I wanted to sleep really late, but slept till close to 7.  I think I went to bed around 9 or 10? lol, yes, I did forget what time I went to bed...since I skipped out on my Friday evening physical therapy workout and came straight home from work instead.  So as for the times, I forget up until when I was eating or even awake last night.

It has definitely been a frustrating couple weeks.  Work as been busy, especially with my coworker on vacation.  I am not getting a lot of sleep because of it (get out late from work, then gym late..then late to bed)...and even worse, I got a sore throat that's getting much better since Thursday afternoon .  Now I noticed that my face (which has been clear for around 3 weeks) is breaking out due to everything going on. sucks!  I do not like to skimp on sleep since I feel it's something I should be able to control....gonna be working on this, because I am not planning to get sick this fall and winter!  Now sure about you, but I know for a fact that when I get better sleep, I feel better, look better, and just about everything is better.

Breakfast: fruit 100, oatmeal with egg whites 220, 2 tablespoons coconut butter 200, stevia, yogurt 100 620...followed by a protein bar 260: 880, fine! drink 40. 920

snacking: roasted veggies around 150? maybe more...chips 140, granola bar 140: 430...wrap with peanut butter, coconut butter and 2 jellies 300


..took a nap after this from around 12-1pm?....my body is just so tired!!!...planning on sleeping pills tonight so I can go to bed on the very early side.

2pm snacking: small plum, and some Mexican flavored quinoa that I probably bought a whole two weeks ago, in a pretty sealed package sitting in my fridge. it was good. 200 or so.

1850, good. Total was 2250, got sick off one of the sleeping pills I took. It was a jell cap and I had partially opened it before swallowing so the liquid mixed badly with the food I are and I ended up getting sick last night in the bathroom around 11pm.

But I still got a lot of sleep, probably around 9:30 till 7am with just the bathroom vomit session at 11pm luckily it ended fast. Sorry for the tmi.

Managed to get a sore throat Thursday and now have to make sure everything gets better over the weekend. That's what partying and less sleep does to you. Next time I take a day off work when I need to.

thru lunch: lower cals, around 950 :)

drive home: around 200

dinner: huge salad with lots of roasted veggies and tofu: 350 or so. and some chips 200...and a protein bar..100 750

so far: 1900...good..no exercise today, worked thru lunch and didn't walk outside, took tonight off from PT

final total calories for fri is 2250...I had a hard time stopping but finally did since I was tired from a sleeping pill....it got me just tired enough to want to go to bed.  I will probably take a pill Saturday night and Sunday night as well....trying to get more sleep.
