Late Breakfast: 50, cashew milk, 100, almonds, 350, cereals, 250 wrap with soy nut butter and marmalade jelly: 750. fine. very, very filling. 

2250...but will be indulging on something more...

exercise: leg strengthening exercises & abs today (and upper legs)

my legs have been feeling quite bad this weekend.  the second half of my work week was too stressful / too much standing.  I didn't sleep well.  and my body is in bad shape right now.  Tomorrow should be better.  I will leave no later than 5pm, get to the gym for what I KNOW is going to be a great upper body workout.  Come home, do leg strengthening & go to bed! :-D

Day # 46 of leg strengthening.

total cal = 2500.

afternoon update, legs hurt more today than they did for the past week. It's due to STRESS, lack of sleep, and being on my feet at work when I should have been sitting. next week will be better for sure.

Oh good morning :)

Breakfast: small banana 100, a couple mixed cereals (protein infused) 290 one packet stevia, hot honey lemon airborne 10, almond milk 50 = 450, good....pre-workout drink 50 to follow...500.

snack: will be a protein shake :)

yeah....legs are not good today at all :(  will rest them tomorrow.

calories: not more than 2200 I don't think.  had a big, tasty dinner :)

Saw you'd left another post to the WM in forum--here's the text from the link (non-clickable) I left you the other day:

"If the posts are over 10 days old the comment boxes aren't active.

The reason being if a spambot registers, it keeps them from spamming some 100,000 old dated posts. If it happens to current posts (<10 days) it's easy to catch. But if it did it to inactive accounts it would be near impossible to notice until it was too late. They spam forums with hyperlinks and such to gain hits when search engines crawl the site."

Have a good Sat!

1900 CAL.

got to work at 11am after interview & worked till 8pm no breaks except half hour lunch.

now leaving work & determined to go to the gym tonight for full weights no matter what.

THE INTERVIEW WAS GREAT!  I was very prepared & had all documents that were necessary.  He asked if I had any questions, and I mentioned the possibility of skipping the next academy & waiting for the one after.  He said to tell him if that's something I was really considering & that I could fill out a form & have no problems down the road (for up to 4 years!) so I did it. Now I can get my legs fully better. friggin awesome!

I will not be talking about the academy on here much until mid summer :D

1350 before dinner :)

big dinner: some spinach dish (with sauce) my boss made was so good 150? and hopefully not more!, cooked broccoli 50, turkey 100 on wrap 100, pumpkin 50, and....cooked cranberries with stevia 100 or so...and herbal tea with no sweetener, my body just needed something comforting right now....total here: 550, maybe 600 = EXCELLENT.

1950, very good to me.  I am slowly cutting calories.  My plan is to get used to a lower amount, just even a little lower, so I can lose some weight (slowly).

 will do some leg work & probably take the night off from ab work.   just doing some stuff at home because I have a very busy day tomorrow with an interview that my last over a couple hours before I go to work tomorrow after it.. 

exercise: 15 minutes during lunch: upper leg exercises. then, strengthening exercises tonight.....maybe abs, but probably not...just gonna get to bed probably, so that I can have a good NYPD interview with my investigator tomorrow morning at 8am...gonna take a taxi there so that I don't have to deal with tough to find parking :) it's very close to where I live (10 minutes - 20 minutes or so! depending on traffic)  I am proud of myself for balancing everything these past few weeks.

around 1700 cals. I had a perfect, happy day.  lots of laughs at the gym after work with one of my neighbors.  It's so much better being happy than being sad.  :-D 

workout: upper body; leg strengthening routine at home.

goodnight all.

Trying to write a comment on Legcramps' page, but there is no comment area!?

exercise plan: lay off cardio still, but do all leg exercises, upper leg weights exercises & ab work.  yup.  & rest of the day on the couch. I also plan to cook, for the first time in months, just some stir fry veggies.

Happy Sunday! :)  I asked my parents if they wanted to go out to eat - but mom already has plans lol.  Someone gave me a $150 gift certificate to a good seafood restaurant by me & I was hoping to use it with my parents.

7am Big tasty breakfast: fruit 50, 1 egg, 1 egg white around 100, cooked cranberries with stevia 100?, greek yogurt 100, wrap 100 with peanut butter 200: 650, good!

9:30am: almonds and cooked cranberries, around 250, good :)

11am: pre-workout drink 50

during & after abs / upper leg workout: shake, not more than 200 cal.

2:00pm: big, late lunch: lots of cooked broccoli & cabbage 150-200, 2 servings packaged, fried tofu 250, 2 bags of veggie chips 300: around 700-750.  I was full but kept eating, was worth it, I guess, rather than binging completely, I just ate double servings to be satisfied while staying home the rest of the afternoon & night.

total: 1850 approx., good.

ended the day with 2250 calories which I am super proud of.  seems I was more tired than hungry & actually listened to my body.  I slept from 7:30pm-5:30am...I feel refreshed!

Good for you to realize you needed rest instead of food! I have ate many times when I probably should have just went to bed. Thanks for writing that, so I will think next time.

Happy Saturday!  I weighed myself this AM at the gym....and surprisingly it said 127 (I did feel lighter & that's why I even stepped on the scale...happy about this)

I woke up on the early side.  Plan is definitely for early morning upper body weights routine at the gym, I want to get it completed & out of the way - but in a good way....I wanna get it done & done well!

7:30am Breakfast: 2 servings fiber one 120, 1 cup of Kashi lean 150, almond milk 40 310 or so. also a supplement (50 cal) soon to help with the weights workout, no caffeine. total 360

Snack: after gym- protein shake with 2 scoops protein and half banana around 400 cal. 750 or so.

12:30pm: Healthy, but big, lunch: 600 or so.

1350, good.

late dinner around 8pm, around 2250 cal, good day of generally healthy food!
