Weight: 126.2

so I thought no overtime this week and I was wrong! it was "better" overtime though.  a coworker reminded me we had a union meeting at 6pm. so I left work at 5, stopped home to make lunch & breakfast for tomorrow, and drove 5 min away from my place to the meeting. at least I got something done in the short gap of time :)  meeting ended around 7 and I got to the gym around 7:30. and home around 9:30. ready to go to bed now :)  I was thinking early night, but, things are always busy. such is this job and life. gotta roll with most of the punches :)

like I said, this is not a weightloss week. and I feel it...lol.

Breakfast thru end of workday 1250.

food after work: 450, but healthier side of things :)

snacking before gym: 200 at most.

after gym snack: small recovery protein bar. 200

2100. not bad. it's ok. lots to do. healthy day. exercise: 20 min - half hour walk, with leg stretching, at lunch.  full upper body weights, back, abs at gym.

 

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

I am in that 2 week no weight loss vortex too! At least we realize it and we need to just keep on track!M

Have a great day!

Evening meetings are a part of my job too, and sometimes it feels like all i've done that day is work! I don't really mind it all that much though - at least we get a catered meal. I probably eat better at the meeting than I would at home ;)

You guys always make me laugh :) thanks for the support it actually made me relax after reading those couple comments yesterday :)

1300 or so till end of work. Calories after work 250. I had a big iced green tea and it made me very sick from the caffeine. It was the largest size from dunkin donuts and it had a very bad effect on me.

1850 total calories very good.

Today basically balanced out Fridays 2600. And in general this whole week is gonna be more averaging out the past weekend. Next week will be actual weightloss again...

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

SkinInTheGame on 06/23/2014:
Wow - who knew you could feel a big ice tea that much - better stick with a medium!


legcramps on 06/24/2014:
Ugh - I hate feeling sick from too much caffeine or sugar. It's such a gross feeling.

yay I slept through the night :)

8am: Breakfast: hot lemon water with stevia, some coconut water, low sugar oatmeal made with extra stevia and almond milk, greek yogurt with added flax oil and stevia again lol, protein bar but it wasn't satisfying (because I've had so many of this type lately) 250: 650...

nothing planned for today so sorta ate during the morning downtime.

11am: early lunch: leftover lots of chicken fried rice: maybe around 2 cups of rice 500 and chicken 300?, then a large amount of white rice 300. triscuits. 150.1250-1300.

so far today: 1950. fine....a very difficult, unplanned day. oh well....glad to not have plans really. wishing I had off from work for like a month lol...

anyways, doing good with dieting, yes, but, I keep backsliding on the weekends.

2pm big snack: fruit 100, protein bar 250, some peanut butter 100 at most, cereal with almond milk 250: 600 ugh.

2550. plan is 3050 or so for today. feeling quite sick and bloated.

I plan to go to bed without dinner. I was eating all day. I just ate a couple cucumbers anyway. I am glad at least I got my weights in.  I sorta wasted the day. not a bad thing...but, it would be better if I wasted it and kept calories around 2200-2300. but, I'm not in such a bad spot. if I stop now :)

total cals: around 2650. good. that's it for today! kitchen is CLOSED. going to bed hungry sucks and I'm doing laundry late. so did eat. it's only 250 calories more no biggie.

total calories: 2900. it's a new day & week tomorrow. whatever!

Backsliding on the weekends - that's good!!!

I have a thing I do - if I start in a backsliding mode - I say out loud - "Back On Track" and then I stop eating.

It is meant to break me from going into an eating frenzy! You do need to say it out loud or it won't work...

Isn't that funny? It totally works for me.

Have a great Sunday, Plenty!

Breakfast and lunch, pretty healthy. 1200.

snack: big apple. 1350. good!

dinner: lots of veggie salads 300 at most I think....chips 200 at least...and a protein bar with a bit of extra sugar. 250.

1350 + 1750 = 2100 :)

snacking: 500. (chocolate peanut butter protein bar, 2 tablespoons pb on a very small 50 cal wrap)

2600. good.

Exercise was a 40 min walk. Only left leg hurt.

...now just hoping to sleep soundly through the night tonight, Saturday & Sunday...I really need some sleep because I skimped on it basically every day this work week.  Last night I think I got 5 hours.

ok....it's hard to look back at the entries since I can't see more than a week or so at once.   anyways, I have been generally doing good on my "dieting."  I think in about 5-6 weeks time, I've lost around 2 1/2 pounds.  just gonna keep it up :)

on another note, it's midnight, I'm still full & cannot sleep.

I have learned to be content with what I have. Or, I am learning to especially today. It feels good to be happy and not angry :)

Breakfast and snacking 700 and healthy lunch 500

After work and during gym almonds and big apple and big iced decaf along with other zero cal vitamin waters around 350 here.

After gym bar around 250

A perfect 1800! Yes it is good :). I would say I def burned 2200 with the workout I did :)

1050 cals burned this week. Gonna try to keep it good tomorrow but may indulge in a larger healthy dinner actually i am planning on it :) same with this weekend! Yay. So a lil less than 1/3 lb. good.

SkinInTheGame on 06/20/2014:
Plenty - you are so right! I watch, track and plan, but at the end of the day, I believe we all can be all be "Healthy at Every Size" if we eat right and exercise regularly!

I am never mad at myself for anything other than sending business emails with spelling errors - hah!

Total 1700 better than I expected :) go me!....oops forgot the extra snack. Gonna add 100 more. 1800 and 400 cal deficit. Decent.

Calorie deficit of 400 today (being nice and making it like I may have burned 2200) I had an amazingly hardcore weights workout at the gym.

To be fully honest, I woke up today feeling extremely exhausted. I am really tired and so is my body. Thinking more positively, I will get through today and this week. I can do it. But also, I don't plan to work a lot of OT. I can't. Gonna have to do what's right for my body now. 1250 cal before light dinner protein bar. 1500 total cal. Exercise was light walking at lunch and leg pt.

came home and ate sautéed veggies. it's ok 1700 total.

so today balanced out Saturday. I really need to do well both days of the weekend.

Good afternoon :)

400 cal lunch. 700 thru morning.

1100 perfect.

Saturday night at the gym I weighed 129 which was upsetting. Usually I weigh myself in the morning so maybe it would have been much less then. Just gonna keep doing what I have been and be positive. :)
