(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.2

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.

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

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!

White water rafting today was great!

1300 calories so far 1450 before dinner.

Dinner was healthy with salad, soup, big piece of a fish similar to tilapia definitely cooked with more oil than expected but healthy and good, a roll, veggies. Maybe around 850? Hopefully not much more.

Either way around 2300 and no doubt I prob burned more than that white water rafting for around 4 hrs!

A recent to visit at the gym confirms that my posted weight is my current weight on a good day around 126.

Happy Friday! Driving up to Hazelton, PA this afternoon with a friend to meet up with family for a day of white water rafting tomorrow! We will be staying over Friday night and Saturday night, coming home Sunday afternoon. Like the bad girl I am lol, taking Monday off. If I feel good, leg wise and all, Monday is for sure a beach day. I have been taking care of my legs stretching them and keeping up with pt so although the aren't strong and pain-free, they have withstood this week and the extra walking so far. Breakfast: coconut water 50, some flax oil spray 50 at most, egg whites 50, yogurt 100, oatmeal 150, water with breakfast, oh and a tablespoon of peanut butter in the oatmeal 100 500 good! Snack iced coffee 50 or so. 550 great!

Snacking: big protein shake, 300 at most.

850, good.

sorta bigger lunch than planned, all healthy, just more chicken and more sautéed veggies than I originally thought I was gonna eat. at least 700 cal for lunch.

1550 so far, decent :)(trying to save up some cals for dinner when we go out to eat tonight)

Prob around 2250 great!

Good Morning! I woke up before 6, was expecting to sleep in but my mind wouldn't turn itself off :) I am thinking about how I plan to go to the gym & dermatologist bc my acne is still bad on my chin....and that I have to prepare & plan to go to NYC (look at train schedules & directions to the concert & restaurant) this afternoon.  Being that it is not even 7am, I'm good!  I am planning a very early gym session starting in under an hour from now. I'll come back here & shower before the dermatologist.  Once there, I will also pick up a baby outfit gift for a coworker...use my free coupon for Victoria's Secret too!  And I may make a shirt return, probably not.  That's the plan.  then just come back here & relax / plan for the concert.   I was thinking to get a haircut but that's one too many activities for today!

I didn't even as the PT out again last night...he is sweet and extremely cute, not married, 42.  We text sometimes, yes, I am the initiator, but he doesn't mind it & seems to like it.  We chat about the weirdest things when I go...and like I said, he's a nice, sometimes geeky, but fun guy.  He makes jokes and knows how to make me laugh.  And he is very cute, body & face.  He knows I have off....but I decided I am not going to ask him out this week...probably not anyways.  I don't need to let him know I am stooping that low - so low that I plan to "hook up" with him on my vacation... I wish I knew more about relationships.

Breakfast: fruit 100 at most, peanut butter 100, oatmeal 160 with added egg whites 50, stevia, and a plain Fage Greek yogurt 100 = 510 nice!

 

Snack and shake .... 850 cal so far

snack: chia pod cup and some Kevita bought at a natural food store while doing errands...150

late meal before concert: collard greens (also bought before concert) 100 at most, tofu 100, and little bit of rice 150 at most. 350.

dinner: 2 light beers 200; grilled chicken salad around 250? with some dressing; and cooked veggies 100 at most?: 550, great! (my meal at the bar / restaurant)

snack on way home: Quest Bar 200 and more water!

total: 2100 = GREAT job.

trouble getting home from concert at MSG as our subway line(s) were cancelled so we had to go a little different way home and subways were delayed big time. then, my friend was so upset that she wanted to chill at my apt before driving home to her place. I went to bed at 3am! but it was a great night!
