calories through the end of the meeting: 1400.

4pm EARLY DINNER: chips and veggies: 350 :-) and two greek yogurts. 200.

snack: 360 (protein bars - 2)

2310, good.

1.5hrs weights but I may take a nice nap first!!!!!!

and it was nice to read on the train this morning and afternoon. a really lovely day - I should definitely be able to catch up on some sleep tonight. weights tonight....need to be at work at 7am...almost forogt! punishment for being out of the office at a meeting for two days....LOL.

Progress as of today: 10.5 lbs lost so far, only 5.5 lbs to go!

supercheese on 07/18/2012:

Weight: 124.5

breakfast: 350.

really interesting day today, especially after the meeting...it was in NYC, a break from my usual queens destination.  my friend met me after work and we went to dinner...had a very nice time in the city with her, even though it was a short time. i got home at 8pm and went to exercise for about an hour. now home and going to bed really soon!

food: before dinner calories were about 1400...

dinner: too much, although everything healthy, but still too much...maybe around 800 hopefully not too much more :(....

2200 today? maybe slightly over that. but worth it for eating healthy, seeing a friend, and having a good day.

exercise: hour cardio, plus some extra walking in the city :-D

Progress as of today: 10.5 lbs lost so far, only 5.5 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 07/17/2012:

i worked 8am-7:30pm on my first day back...sucked, considering I wanted to go to bed early bc i have to go to the city tomorrow for work and didn't want to be tired....but oh well.

After a week off (feels like a year off :-)...) back to work today. I was up on and off last night, didn't sleep well, but I do feel pretty good.

Breakfast: squash soufflee around 5am 150, then a protein bar 200, fiber one with almond milk 300: 650, good.

snack: bar, tea.

lunch: canned salmon 150, veggies 50, chips?, pita bread, soup.

snack: fruit chips.

exercise - plan for cardio only both Mon and Tues...horrible exercise, not much on bike and a little weights bc i had a lot of anger to get out using them....

total cals - good, maybe around 2200. maybe slightly less.

bed.

very weird day. i didn't hydrate after morning bootcamp hour class and got very, very dehydrated - dizzy and sick the rest of the day....i had to pull over to the side of the road going to my grandma many times because I was so dizzy/shakey. no more coffee (it was decaf though, but way too much) after bootcamp!

otherwise, exercise/calories, good.

exercise: hour bootcamp, 2 mi walk.

also got oil change, visited grandma.

didn't feel well from around 1pm-8pm. finally feeling better, 9pm :)

although I do not feel like i've lost weight (not in the mood for any crazy low cal diets this vacation!), I have definitely been more active this week and I have had a sore body since even Tuesday to prove it! lol...

My friend invited me up to visit her, like an hour away, so I said yes to go today...so, now, i'm  trying to get lots of yoga and some cardio in this AM/early afternoon before I leave to see her around 2 or 3pm...i feel sorta rushed, but then again, it's nice to have people to visit and things to do, no?

Breakfast: protein bar 170, vanilla almond milk w/ fiber one 230: 400 great!

snack/hydration during 3hr hot yoga: big banana, after a small coconut water: 200, many zero calorie vitamin waters

late 2pm lunch: tons of seaweed salad w/ a little dressing 200, protein bar 200, kombucha 60: 460 good. yogurt...550

1150...excellent.

1900 cal, excellent.

a little biking to and from yoga, some walking with friend. no major cardio today.
