Weight: 127.0

took the morning to relax! :) then dad texted to call mom who said I need to get to her earlier than expected, so I need to get to the gym now....just ate a large volume, but low cal, lunch.

7am breakfast: around 400 (piece of butternut squash soufflé 50, tons of cooked cranberries 100?, yogurt 100, pumpkin 60, bran 90)

11am lunch: over the top amount of teriyaki leftover veggies 150?, roll 120 with spread 30, almond milk 30, 1 egg and 1 egg white 100: 450, good.

total so far: 850, good!!!!

then, the plan is to go the the gym from about 12-1. buy a shake at the gym and also have an apple with me if I need it......come home & shower...maybe just shower at gym? and go home for Thanksgiving...

around 2200 I think...you know how it goes with holiday dinners :)

exercise: full weights.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Weight: 127.0

Breakfast: oatmeal 150, almond milk 50, butternut squash soufflé 50, yogurt 100: 350...candies 400. (2 hard candies at work in AM...sometimes if I rush to get to work, my body is practically craving sugar by the time I start work....)

snack: 200 bar

400 small lunch: roll with grilled chicken & 1/2 an orange pepper, a pickle & a plum tomato.

home from work early / reading to crash / happy / 4:30 pm early dinner / binge on all things healthy: 800 (mostly sautéed veggies, also some steamed kale, lettuce, and a yogurt with cooked cranberries. how much sautéed veggies you ask???...around 7-8 cups (just of the sautéed, not including the salad).  I ate all the cooked ones with the lettuce. ohh, almost forgot, I also had some of that packaged butternut squash soufflé - 2 servnigs, 120 cal.

snack:  more sautéed veggies at least 200 some of the cooked cranberries I made (by microwaving lol and with 2 packages truvia) and a chocolate heated up protein bar - like a brownie - around 200.

 around 2150-2200 decent.

no exercise besides my daily routine (to and from car for work, a couple errands, getting up during day at work desk job) felt good to just come home and relax....decided to do my upper body weights routine in the AM, since i'm laying low on cardio & don't really wanna think about the pool - it would be too much right now & would lead to me being exhausted and/or binging....and too much on my muscles. another time!

Sorry your legs are giving you trouble. Take it easy on them. Good plan on post below - weights and other types of exercise. With me - my feet are the issue I have when do too much walking! Hang in there!
