2350 today. no regrets.

45-50 min of cardio exercise.

i was really beat, but got to the gym and did my thing. this is very important to me - to continue no matter what.

I will reach my goal by my 30th birthday, 9/9/12.  why not?  I have ample time, summertime! the best time for cold drinks and weightloss.

115...is my ultimate goal.

right now i'm in the upper 120's, close to 130 but not there..

so, 10 lbs? i can do it, just one lb or so a week....let me get there! I know I can do it if I put my mind to it, especially weekdays....weekends i will not be so strict, you can't be all the time, not me anyways....

that's why keeping up exercise is sooo important, with a damn desk job........

1700 calories today, and all healthy...really. wow. good carbs, veggies, fruits, protein. wow - proud of myself hehe.

exercise: biking to and from gym with a little extra, around 30-40 min and full weights for about one hour there.

i burned a good extra 500 today yay...

so this week so far, I burned 1500 cal, about 1/3 lb...and i am gonna totally be weighing in the teens for my bday...but small steps, since i am really good at screwing up (getting scared of the change!? of getting out of my comfort zone..) when i almost get there!

got basically a full night of sleep, finally! :-)  or close to it, lol. fell asleep while reading a book, and i needed sleep way more than the book...so this is good.

i may do weights tonight at the gym, but prob just biking after work today.

breakfast: tea, bran crackers that i warmed and softened and then spread my yogurt/pumpkin/cinnamon/choc stevia on top of: 300 cal, great.

snack: bar, tea. 200

lunch: same as mon/tues: 600 at most. 50 more for orange slices from boss.

snack: fruit, SELTZER... 150 at most.

dinner: 700, a bit much, but worth every drop...well, every bite of sauteed spinach, salmon, and chocolate protein bar. eww, but yes, good.

2000 cal. = success.

hour of biking around neighborhood/to gym, stairclimber at gym, 10 min treadmill walk/jog at gym...did the gym to break up the monotony of doing just the bike. it's a lot easier when i do mutliple cardio activities than just one and time goes much faster!

(burned around 1,000 cal since Monday = success....doing well again!)
