Breakfast: a tasty 520: maple sugar weight control oatmeal made with coconut water, greek yogurt, and two tablespoons smart balance nut butter....snack at gym was a banana total around 650.

snack: chocolate coated granola bar and a decaf coffee around 200 here.
lunch: dunkin donuts croissant with vegetable egg whites around 400? and some bran crackers 60..also I had a big peach 100 and a small plum 50...so around 600 here.
1450 :)
dinner: big vegetable soup thai style with miracle rice noodles (no cals here!) 100, followed by a lot of garlic style vegetables 150 at least...250...then gave in and had some of my friend's chicken fried rice :) around 300 there I'd say. so 550, good!...oh and a small peach 50?
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.

Around 1250 after lunch...

Healthy eating all day :)

Healthy dinner: 500 tops :) well 550

1800 all very healthy including roasted potatoes and veggies and grilled chicken and salad and celery just very good and a peach.

Taking a break from the low calories bc my body is telling me that it wants one :)

Maybe just a carbonated kombucha drink for a snack tonight or maybe nothing at all...

Around 2100.

At least I got sleep on Wednesday night into Thursday. Hoping Thursday is a better day and lower calories :)

Fruit 250 Thru morning 750 Lunch around 550 1300 :) legs are painful.

boss doesn't understand or get it....that my legs hurt and that I don't want to work any overtime right now. oh well.

total calories around 2250.

I've been craving sugar and energy. had 1/2 banana at breakfast, full banana (small) at lunch, and a large banana during my workout. in addition, I had a coconut water at the gym.

trying everything to feel better, especially leg-wise. 

I didn't "overdo" the bananas just to feel better, I was actually craving them....

...hardly any walking, but I did do a full weights and abs routine at the gym tonight despite the pain. it's hard to not do a weights routine when I actually skipped one last week as well.

Awe, sorry your legs aren't doing too well right now. Are you doing a lot of icing and stretching?

Breakfast banana 120, lemon water 30, supplement drink 20 so around 170; later chicken on wrap with coconut butter 300 or so around 500 here will have coffee at work! Snack: bar and coffee around 200 if I have the small bar. Lunch burrito made with low carb wrap , chicken fried rice leftovers around 450 - 500 and celery sticks 50. Same for dinner. Dinner: was healthy, stopped at the supermarket on my way to pt and ate a really nice healthy dinner. Around 400 of some sautéed veggies, little bit of roasted potatoes so good for me, celery sticks that I had brought to work, seltzer that my boss gave me. 1600 so far...less walking at lunch but finally full pt for my legs. Snack: not sure.

1800 calories today :)

maybe I burned 200 extra, maybe not. walking wasn't much.  I wonder if I truly burned 2000 calories. at least I did my PT. probably I did burn it, as I wasn't truly only sedentary.

so....200 cal burned today :)

Went to bed around 11pm and woke up before my alarm clock.  I guess my body just wants to relax before the big day today.  I was up at 6am.  Hopefully i'll be able to get sleep tonight before Monday but if not, oh well!

Weird breakfast: lots of sautéed veggies & leftovers, two small plums, then oatmeal and yogurt. 550 or so (could be more, but this is what I'm counting it as).


Around 2000-2200 great. No planned exercise, some walking but really not much.

Up early for dermatologist appt. last time at this dr bc they are 45 min away. Appt is at 8:15am. Then laundry later this AM, food shopping at some point, massage back on Long Island at 2pm, gym tonight. Tomorrow is a friend's bday out 2.5 hrs away out on Long Island and everything needs to be done before Tomorrow since next week I will be working and no days off. I wanted to take off but my boss made it pretty clear he would disapprove since my coworker is out next week already.

Tomorrow is tough since I may get home late Sunday night which would really piss me off before work Monday morning. I will be trying to get home at a reasonable hour Sunday, like 9pm or earlier (preferably 8pm) It's not that I don't wanna go to the party out on Long Island, I do!!! But I also would have liked a little more relaxation / alone time at home this weekend or a day off next week. Too much driving & rushing around on Saturday & Sunday. (but it is better than having no plans...)

Breakfast: fruit 100, yogurt 100, coconut butter 100, oatmeal 160, egg whites 100: around 550 nice! Snack iced coffee 650 Early lunch: tons of veggies roasted around 350, wrap 300 1300, good.

Crappy snack: frozen yogurt some being lower sugar with some mango and berries on top. 250 at most probably. 1550 but I guess tired and unsatisfied....time for gym I think!

More before gym: stopped at home, had a plum around 50 & protein bar 170. 220....will say 200.

total so far: 1750. eh.

gym banana 120, after gym small bar 130.

2000, perfect.
