ddwebmaster on 05/09/2013:
If having problems it's usually the quickest to email me at webmaster@dietdiaries.com

I haven't changed anything real recently, so it's probably something with your browser at home. Email me and let me know which browser you're using and I'll see if I can provide some suggestions.

went to bed late around 11:30pm, but happy that i accomplished many things today. many phone calls at lunch, good swimming in the evening. i did what i could. tomorrow's another day to finish up most of the application for the NYPD...! i will send it in this weekend as i don't think i can handle thinking about it another weeK!.  maybe i will have to leave work early to finish...ugh! or maybe i take a vacation day this week to handle it if i have to...don't want that though. gotta save my days!

NOT feeling good about the day, but getting on with it...

Breakfast: protein shake 210

snack: slimfast shake 190

snack: protein bar: 210

lunch: yogurt and sauce ... 200-250

snack: snackwells bar or somehting 150

1000

snack: apple

dinner:

overall, 1850, good. can't really get lower calories than this...even today was difficult.

avg 3 day total: 2620, not good....but lower. i hate when i start doing this, but i need to lower the average in order not to continue gaining weight. so i need to keep a record over the next few days...

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

big, satisfying breakfast.  mostly driving around a lil bit too much today but the day is mine to spend basically as i please. no major commitments.

breakfast: high fiber hot cereal 150, with almond milk 30, smallish banana 120, butternut canned squash 1/2 cup 50, (this all had a lot stevia packets - 4 i think - to sweeten it) almonds 170, 2% greek yogurt after with cinnamon & chocolate stevia 150 = 670 & well worth the calories!

ate a little much at all meals & snacks, so overdid calories a hair, nothing i can do now.

2250 before pool...

will have food after as well....

pool: at least 1/2 hour. probably that'll be it. mostly paddleboard i think.

feeling very tired...almost like i wanna skip the pool and just do weights tonight???

ended up doing full weights routine, much better than having to go to the pool, for sure!

calories were a little over, but not by much thank god. total: 2380, ok.

OhioRaven on 05/04/2013:
Dandelions are good. The leaves in salad with spinach. And the flowers in my weekly soup. The flower stems are only a little bitter do I leave them out. I want to try kale too.


JBGirl on 05/04/2013:

hey all. i got ready for work in about 15 minutes today...and looked it! LOL

anyways, all is good. i am more motivated and inspired once again to get to the gym and pool.  i have been notified from a letter by the NYPD that my process is STARTING! wahoooo. this is the year, for sure. i think i may be in the January academy after all!

so...glad i stopped home for dinner before heading to the gym. hoping they haven't towed my car lol! i parked in the 15 minute spot, but for probably more like a half hour. lol. once i get home, it's hard for me to leave ;-) to get back out to exercise.

good thing is, i had something healthier than another shake for dinner: instead, cooked turkey (not deli) on a thicker slice of bread with mustard and two yellow peppers dipped in dressing. overall, a nice light meal at around 350 calories. and we all know i like to eat....so probably a shake or something after working out, maybe lowfat frozen yogurt instead.

so far, 1850 healthy calories. i've had veggies since breakfast :-) all week this week by making shakes that include greens. i feel better about this, and will continue to try to eat more vegetables (really, i am trying to make sure i have greens everyday is what i mean for now. i think it'll improve my skin and healing process)

i will end the day at 2050-2100 cal. good.

maybe another update tonight...gotta change my address with the DMV later before bed....!

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Puddles on 05/02/2013:
Good luck in the process for the NYPD. Happy to see you are back on track. Have a nice evening.


V on 05/02/2013:

I GOT A LETTER IN THE MAIL FROM THE NYPD!!! WAHOO! THEY KNOW I EXIST...ON TO THE NEXT STAGE, FILLING OUT SOME PAPERWORK & GETTING IT IN! WAHOOOOOOOOOOO! MOVING ON, STILL HAVE AT LEAST 6MOS-1YR TILL I GET IN, BUT YES, YES, YES!!!!

TOTAL CALORIES AROUND 2250. EXERCISE: SWIMMING WITH PADDLEBOARD.

Wednesdays for the next month will be packed with action after work....I have physical therapy at 6/6:30-about 7.  then, dinner of course. then, driving to the pool to swim myself for about an hour followed by swim instruction at 9pm.  I am in the beginner class, which I don't mind - i do have some swimming experience though! - so there isn't a lot of exercise going on yet which is why i exercise beforehand to get cardio in, mostly with the kickboard for my legs.

breakfast: tasty shake! fat free greek yogurt 100, avocado 80, almond milk 20, little blueberries 20?, tons of spinach 50, lots - 4 packets of powder stevia: 270 - great...definitely not acidic in my mind - the spinach and stevia is very alkalizing to the body.  i am working on decreasing artificial/acids a little bit - especially for breakfast. and TEA with some stevia. ohh, a few almond earlier. 300 total.

snack: almonds 200

snack: source of life chocolate macadamia nut protein bar, tea 200

lunch: turkey, spinach, cooked carrots, chips?, light bagel 500

1200

snack: plum: 50

snack  2 big peppers, water, fiber one bar if i want it.

tried something different this AM for breakfast :-D green shake made with: tofu 100, almond milk 30, 1/2 scoop cherry protein powder 50, spinach 50, some stevia (the only sweetner that is not acidic) around 250 - good!  instead, when stevia is digested, it's highly alkaline...and this is what i'm looking to increase in my diet - so for now, i'm sticking with incuding it in my food.

...update at work, 11am, having a much better day. i love being physically active & swimming last night made me feel great in the AM!  I am REALLY gonna work on being proactive to lose a few pounds & eventually reach 120 lbs, which was my originally goal until i got derailed & then fully derailed by this injury. But I really have little excuses, as I live by the pool.  I do not like going everyday, but I will try for every other or at least 3days per week or so for the swimming/cardio!

healthy day for sure. lots of veggies, fruit, i just realized no meat at all today! wow a vegetarian day!...

2000 (maybe even a lil more) before the gym, good.

after weight lifting for a bit under an hour: i went next door for frozen yogurt lol. 250-300 good.

total: 2250-2300, good.
