Big tasty breakfast: strawberries 100, oatmeal with egg whites 220, peanut butter 200, cottage cheese 100: 620.


a great back/pushups/arms workout, did 1/2 my abs workout which was enough. I spent a very long time at the gym because I took my time there. Even had a protein shake during the second half of my workout.  Did a little walking at the mall - legs are getting better for sure & can handle more :)

I will probably, unfortunately, have to skip a day of the gym in the coming weekend.  There will be no time to fit it in, which is fine...I guess.  I do not see a point of taking off work / taking a vacation day in order to fit it in, so I guess I'll work out a lil less...this one time...because of time scheduling problems between workouts.  Usually I like doing my upper body Tuesdays / Thursdays / Sunday mornings, but sometimes I pull a Saturday night in...this time though, if I go to the beach all day Saturday with a friend, I won't be able to pull a Saturday night workout. And sunday I won't be able to workout I don't think because I have a wine tasting trip out on Long Island for a good friend's  bday.  I have to be at her place at 11, leaving here at 10, and the gym opens at 8. Not enough time to go to the gym and get ready by 10. oh well...I usually try hard to fit everything in, but this time, rushing will not be a good idea! so instead of Sunday morning, I'm taking off work on Monday & I will go extra hard at the gym with my workout. As well, I will be able to go to PT Monday and catch up on laundry / food shopping...probably.


Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

morning :) I could do laundry, but really not in the mood to rush with the day. so, putting it off till tomorrow AM I think, or possibly tonight :) ....lol or maybe I could do it NOW!

ended up doing laundry Saturday morning.  Good move because now it's done & I can enjoy Sunday.

calories were around 2250. excellent.

rough week, lacking sleep every night. glad to be home & going to bed early tonight...and not have to wake up tomorrow as early :)

legs have been having a rough time, but staying sorta strong. I have been having more caffeine / coffee this week. but also had a lot of healthy food too.  all in all, I do need to be able to get appropriate sleep in order to be healthy. I will work on this for the coming week of summer.

I had a huge dinner. veggies galore, roasted, just a ton.  I also had some "shirataki" elbow noodles if you know what I'm talking about and some tofu. you can bet my dinner was seriously huge. probably veggies and everything combined added up to 6-7 cups of food. lol. it's fine. i'll still probably be able to fall asleep. thank god there were veggies to buy, at Key Food....supermarkets are finally providing healthier foods! how lucky we are! I was exhausted feeling and decided to indulge on the goodness of healthy selections in huge portions.

around 2250 cals today and I'm so happy. good week!

lots of weightloss, 1000 calories down this week!

and overall, since mid-May, I've been able to burn 3 lbs worth of calories, that is great!

I did snack a little right before bed on some chips and a small plum, but still keeping calories at the 2250 mark :)

I did great today, despite feeling so tired all week (working more hours & getting less sleep). should be sleeping now but I'm relaxing after a pretty impressive gym session. I did have some caffeine to get me through, but, I am happy with my workout.

I've been eating more natural things this week, especially after work I have been trying to include more normal dinner choices instead of coffee (decaf) with fruit. I did feel better doing this....just means spending the money and buying lots of extra food on the weekend. we'll see if I can keep it up :)

I have also been having the fattiest of condiments: coconut spread / butter. I love it.  it has it's health benefits and I think it keeps me fuller in the mornings. I ran out of cold cuts, and instead I had a veggie burger (Morningstar - mushroom) on a small regular white wrap with a tablespoon of the coconut spread. amazing. I feel that the coconut tastes good with everything, from chicken to meat to ...seriously anything! for breakfast, lunch or dinner I could live off that stuff. I know it's high in cholesterol but for now I'm making it a part of my diet.  it also has a ton of fiber in it, which is nice.

calories today were around 1850. very good, especially since the food choices were healthier too. exercise was great, left leg does still bother me, but, some walking at lunch and my entire upper body workout with abs and pushups. I'd say I may have (hopefully!) burned 2200 today which leaves a deficit of 350 cal. good.

so, combined with yesterdays approximate 700 loss for the week, this rounds to approx. (rounding low because who knows maybe I didn't burn as much as I'd like to think I did!) ...anyways, it rounds to approx. 1000 cals burned this week which is better than I've done in awhile and I'm extremely proud of it!  as for tomorrow, I do not think I'm going to try to keep it low. Maybe more like 2000 cal day tomorrow. either way, since May, I have lost 3 lbs calorie-wise. still though, the scale is still up there, but sometimes, I do feel I am looking better in my clothes.

either way, it's more maintenance and not weight gain and that just makes me happy!

since May, I have burned 3 lbs worth of calories plus another 100. that's 3500 x 3 + 100. lol, just an estimation, but it feels so good to know I can do this!

period week & still a uti and legs acting up, but making it through! I will get more sleep tonight & that should help everything along. it was a late night last night which caused a lot of these things to get exacerbated lol.

anyways, I ate VERY healthy today. seriously. I did have a coffee, but other than that, I am telling you, food choices were very good. especially dinner which included a medium sized piece of cooked salmon  (not lox but the real deal!) on a wrap, veggies, fruit! 600 cal of healthiness.  lunch was small, from a coworker! his wife made a cool Filipino soup of kale and chicken tamarind flavor. very, very good. but low cal, around 400 is my guess (really just chicken and kale). big piece of healthy chicken. again, the real deal and not deli meat chicken!

1700 cal.

tonight I had two small pieces of fruit maybe like 40 each? so, 1780...and my body is craving kombucha which I may have. and my stomach is feeling good, I'm relaxed now so I will feel good in the morning, lol, not bloated because of lack of time to relax and use the bathroom, lol I know, again, TMI!

around 1850 today.

if I'm lucky, it's 150 cals burned.

and for the week, let's say approximately 700 cals burned, very good!

exercise was walking at lunch and some of pt. I skipped a few exercises because I was feeling a bit exhausted and didn't wanna push myself too much right now because sometimes it's too much to do it that way.

I think we do live parallel lives; I just finished my period week ;) and i've been skipping some pt exercises too LOL. I've been feeling tired for about a week now, ever since my period started.

1150 cal before end of day. Dinner 400


Snack tonight will be maybe kombucha and fruit.

Exercise around 20 - 25 min at lunch and most of the pt kinda rushed. Went back to dr for the uti before pt and good I went bc he gave me a different antibiotic this time around as I still have it. Thank god I went back bc the burning while I pee was really really painful last week. That part luckily is long gone.

Around 1700 cal. Burned 300 cal today.

Happy Saturday :)

Do you ladies / men have any suggestions for me: I have a tentative urologist appt on Monday that I will have to leave work for and then come back after.  It's a bit of a nuisance to go to, so I feel that if I don't have any pain on Monday I will skip.  I scheduled the appt because I think I have a kidney stone which may have been the cause of this UTI.  What do you suggest? Cancel the appt Monday or go anyway?  I'd rather not miss work again...

Breakfast: kombucha and some nut butter 100, almond milk in oatmeal 200, egg whites & some pumpkin 120, stevia for sure like 4-5 packets it just wasn't very palatable (I had added lousy tasting packaged pumpkin) 420 awesomeness.

snacking / early lunch: 400 pretty healthy ones ( but did include a chocolate cookie dough flavor Quest bar).

820 = gonna be a great day!

Snack 300

Dinner: large with the white rice and some sauce prob around 800?So tasty!

1900 :)
