Horn_Of_Plenty - Friday Aug 17, 2012
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 122.5

breakfast: a lil earlier than usual, a protein drink, two fiber one bars: 380, good.

snack: coffee (decaf) , bar? this works for me...650

lunch: tofu, sun chipschips, maybe boss' food(sauteed veggies), some sauce....500

dinner: watermelon, drinks, pita, leftover tofu/boss' food 400 at most.  1550...

snacking: ehh, two protein bars, milk 450. eh, is ok.

2000 cal = fine. what am i complaining about!?  :-)

BED..., early night.

oh, and worked approximately 11 hours today. 8-7.

exercise: simple tonight = walking, i think 3.5 mi, maybe 4, i lost track!

I am VERY close to weighing 120, so very close. It may take 2 weeks, it may take 2 months, I am gonna get there...I am starting to feel that feeling I get when I am reaching my weightloss goal, the anticipatory feeling. I am trying to relax with it, and let my weightloss happen slowly, so that it can stay off forever this time. slow weightloss is definitely helping the weightloss stick around. from firsthand experience, i can tell you, it is easier to keep the weightloss happening with patience, persistance, and a slower process, as long as you can take note of the progress that has happened over time, don't forget how far you've come. for me, i've already lost 13 pounds from last summer. awesome.  finally, i see it in a couple pairs of my jeans, they don't look as nice when they are baggy in the legs (they used to be skin tight!)...i may throw them out! :-)

Progress as of today: 12.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

Breakfast: granola bars and protein shake: 340.

I don't feel good and would rather take today OFF.... :-(

snack: dacaf coffee? bar. 310

may do weights tonight, maybe not (upper body).  I have been feeling incredibly week and tired this week :-(  Last night I got a full night's sleep but I feel like I need more than I even got.  I am exhausted again...  I need to sleep well most nights a week, not one night a week. Doing hardcore exercise, you need recovery time...

Weight: 123.5

Weight Update: interestingly, after so many high calorie days for even two weeks straight!!!, i weighed a low of 123.5 today! First time in 5 years!  So the proof is in the pudding, literally, eat well, don't binge, and exercise, and you will lose weight!  I would like to reach 120 by September, but even if it's really slow weightloss and takes longer, I will be very happy.  I am finally successful, again, after FIVE LONG YEARS.

Early Breakfast: 6am, even a lil before that time, dad was up and woke me of course lol. pineapple greek yogurt, protein bar: 400.

Morning before bootcamp: some organizing, a little cleaning, little laundry :)...and reading too.

9am: fiber one and almond milk, protein drink 350 great.

hour bootcamp followed by some clothes & food shopping...tonight i have dinner with my best friend and then out to another friend's 30th bday...good weekend...

11:45am snack & early lunch after bootcamp: coconut water 60, HUGE salad with lots of good, healthy ingredients 250, and soup 150: 460 pretty darn perfect in my book!

snack: starbucks drink which gave me gas of course my fault...200 cal.

so far, 1400 cal! :-)

okay, dinner was a bit much, but all healthy. total calories today around 2400. good.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

found out LATE around 8pm that my boss wants me there by 7am sucks! at least i can skip out on any weights tomorrow (i wouldn't want to do them the night before bootcamp) and have an easy exercise...relax, bed early Friday night before bootcamp saturday morning. and i do have a friend's 30th bday sat night! :-) ....BEACH sunday. so, definitely i have some nice plans for the weekend.
