Yeah, I am the biiiiatch of the DD's! I must start leaving comments soon, I know!

Around a 40 min walk at lunch bc I ate fast. Was great!

Calories around 1450 :) perfecto. Home late but def not too late. Ran errands after work and got home like 7:50pm. Tonight was actually perfect. Despite working till 6:30, I did everything I would have wanted to do after work. A nice night. However, tomorrow I must go to the gym and not work late again.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

8am Breakfast was 400, then had some chips, so total 550.

10am now I remember, then as a snack a protein bar 200.

1pm Lunch: sliced strawberries with stevia 100, veggies 50?, chicken drumstick with the skin around 250 here. so 400 and unfortunately still hungry.

1150...maybe some more chips. yes, a little over 2 servings. 250 cals.

total: 1400, good. (wanted a low-cal day, but lunch and everything was healthy and that's all that matters when I am feeling so darn hungry).

 

 

Wanted low cal but ended up being higher cal oops.

2200, 45 min walk. Bed early...

Hello Plenty - happy Sunday!


Umpqua on 03/16/2015:
Did you mention beach days a few entries back? Yeah, I'm trying to visualize the beach and warm weather to stay motivated and on track - it helps. Sounds like you had a nice weekend!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/21/2015:
Yeah...I cannot wait for the beach! :)

Got a good amount of sleep. I think I went to bed around 9pm. Then work around midnight till 1am and I took a sleeping pill during that time and slept until around 7. Pretty good hours and more than during the week. So that's a success. Breakfast: 1/2 banana and also some canned pumpkin 100, oat bran 120, yogurt 110, peanut butter 200, all topped with stevia. Around 550 total. Good! And kombucha. So more like 580.

1350 total around 2:30pm...prob time to do laundry :) debating the gym tonight instead of sunday morning...slow Saturday, enjoying the slower pace!

5pm Snacking on chips and kombucha around 200.

1550...

2050 cal and full weights, back, abs workout :)

Sounds like things are going well with the leg recovery--saw your comment. I can't tell you much about artif sweetener use because I just don't use them. I got a very weird reaction to aspartame some years ago just from one drink with it. Some of the effects lasted about 2 weeks.

Enjoy your afternoon/evening!


Maria7 on 03/14/2015:
Good on getting the laundry done...I did the family laundry day before yesterday, so I'm glad that is done. I am also enjoying a relaxing Saturday..take care. :-)

around 2250 cals. more carbs purposely. feeling better with more carbs as of late.

exercise: half hour walk, 2 hours (with breaks) upper body weights routine, back, abs.

legs felt a little bad during the day, but then I actually full out forgot about any pain at the gym....and are pretty good now. this is good news.  it means it's a mental battle that I am winning at.  Looking forward to a wonderful summer. Beach days. and time off as well.

It's been a good week. I can attribute it to less overtime. Far less OT and much more sleep.

big dinner at home of extra white sticky rice (around 1.5 cups) and about 3-4 cups of sautéed veggies. no meat, purposely. very, very full but it should also help me fall asleep bc of the carbs.

around 2200. is ok.

exercise: 1/2 hour walk outside.

Today I let the stress overcome me.  I didn't work well at all at work.  Felt horrible since the point in the morning when my boss asked me to take a short 30 min lunch instead of one hour. So i ate for 15 min and walked for 15 min. and still people may not like that i went outside....well "F" them! I don't need to be punished more in my desk job! SORRY fellas, but i'm done with this crap!  I have a life too...and emotions...and a body that needs mental and physical stability. Maybe all these people that work short hours everyday should try my schedule. LOSERS. for people who look at me and say i don't do enough, maybe they should step in my shoes and do MY LONG HOURS - that I've done in the past. 12 and 13 hours days. Things they have never done at a desk job - same seat, all day. I really don't give a hoot what people think, they are not in my shoes, at my desk, at my job.

It bothers my legs just thinking about it.

With emotions high and unyielding, my legs were also in pain today.  I believe they are one of the same. It's very scary indeed. I feel tomorrow should be a much better day.

I just don't have any patience anymore for long days, everyday. I want normal days sometimes. I just can't take it - my patience will not last.

Calories thru nighttime: 1850, great.

exercise: 15 min walk at lunch, weights routine in a record short time. feels good to get it done fast during the week and i think on weekends, too.  I think it's better for me to bang them out more, then i have more free time to be with friends? or do all the other things that are important.

probably around 2200. but mostly balanced. higher in carbs because yesterday i went completely crazy with carbs so i need to come down off that high slowly today. still needing a carb boost in the AM.

exercise was a half hour or so walk at lunch.

legs sorta bothersome, but it's just a stress thing. not real physical pain. i'm done with that.

Good on the short walk...Hubby and I took a walk yesterday and it was good to get out and about the neighborhood.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/12/2015:
It's great to get out in the sunshine. And I work in a metropolitan city...it's SO NICE to get out and walk around because there's people out working, doing things, people driving places, the train above...so much action, makes for an excellent break outside of the office!!!! excellent. and GREAT for the mind & body!

breakfast: fiber one 240 with almond milk 40. 280

 Later breakfast: small banana 120, Greek yogurt 150, peanut butter 150 700!

Off to do some important errands!

snacking in afternoon: 150

snacking at home 150-200, 50

1100 :)

natural food bar 220

1320.

probably around 2000-2100. good!

Around 10:30am this morning, I went to Staples Office Superstore in the morning to make color photocopies of important documents for getting reimbursed thru my union.  If it all works out right the first time, I will be getting $610 back in the next few weeks!

Overall, I had a very productive and successful day. saved a lot of money.  After Staples, I went to the mall.  My internet service has a store there and I changed my internet/tv service from a $129.51 plan down to the cheapest one available $84.29.  I will have less tv stations and slower cable (but doubt i'll be able to notice the change in speed).  I care more about saving money these days!  And i'm hardly home to watch so much tv.  Usually, I end up watching just the basic news channels anyway.

After that, I got a couple perfume samples at Sephora, free. As well as a couple samples of under-eye cream for puffiness. yay for that!

I then went to Victoria's Secret. You can return older bras without a receipt and get store credit. I returned the two that haven't washed well and always show under my clothing.  I got around $15 back for each, totally around $30. I then went to buy a new bra. I used the $30 store credit plus a $15 coupon off a bra. My bill came out to only $1.02!!!! Amazing Savings! and, I also had a coupon for a free panty!! So, one free underwear and a bra that was only $1.02! So cool.

Leaving the mall, I forgot to pay my parking ticket inside for $3. So I paid on the way out of the garage $6. Oh well, I did save a ton of money despite the $3 overcharge! Glad I went out to the mall.

Relaxing now, soon to get ready for dinner with friends.  Will probably stop by my parent's house to fill out some paperwork as well. lately I have a lot of paperwork to do.
