hungry again, middle of the night. - and i did have a nice dinner: chicken salad, with croutons, chips even, too!

so, 3:30am snack: tasty oatmeal flavored protein bar: 250.

breakfast: probably oatmeal and a protein pudding, yup! 400.

snack: protein bar, same one? 250.

lunch: thinking some canned pumpkin with added nutmeg & cinnamon and sweet and low, 1/2 turkey sandwich 400...

2250, some exercise, and a HORRIBLE rash on my temples of my forehead. pimples like crazy and i usually have generally clear skin. all of a sudden, pimples EVERYWHERE even other parts of my face, a terrible period with clotting, and horrible mood swings. something went wrong this week with my hormones, this is nOT normal for me. and my sleep was horrible to boot. not sure what is going on. parents are forcing me to the dermatologist tomorrow.

things are not going well for me. i am completely exhausted and i feel stressed most of the time i'm at work. this week i worked 3 days of 7am-5:30pm and 2 days of 8am-5:30pm. it's a lot, also around 1 hour commute each way, so two more hours just driving. hard to get to the gym and do really anything else.

something is not right.

Hi :) I use my bangs to cover forehead breakouts; no one ever knows ;)

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 125.0

Breakfast: oatmeal 210, greek yogurt 80, protein bar 220: 510. good!  maybe i'll be less hungry in the morning at work with the added protein...

snack: another protein bar...220

lunch: turkey sandwich, carrots, chips, apple?

snack: BIG red pepper, big apple

ate too damn much later in the evening: instead of a protein bar after working out, i had a half a wrap and large soup. was very filling, and in some ways higher calories but HEALTHIER than all the fake of a protein bar. i had a creamy butternut squash soup and healthy half a chicken wrap. but still around 550-600 cals.

total: 1900-2000 cal. is ok. no binging! :-)

exercise: 40 min of good cardio. little bit of arm weights and back for a few minutes, too.

ok, i am deciding to forget about the binge after thanksgiving and just work to keep up the exercise and what i've been doing, because aside from that day i was very successful in losing weight...i'm gonna keep doing what i've been doing and FORGET about trying to even out calories.

Kati on 11/28/2011:
I think I had a breakthrough yesterday by understanding that eating too much leads me directly to binges. This is so odd, but the more I eat, the more I want to eat more! I realized I needed to avoid eating too much. The problem is, by the time I notice, I have already overeaten and franatically packing more. What I really hate about myself in these cases is picking up the last pieces of food from the tray in the middle of the table WHILE I still have some of the same stuff on my plate. Just to be sure that nobody picks them up before me... AHHHHHH. And I am still unable to control this! It's so embarrassing, so ... STOOPID!


grannyannie on 11/28/2011:
Menu looks good. I do well with eating a bowl of porridge with a few raisins and crushed almonds and skimmed milk. I eat between 7.30 and 8 and start to get hungry about 11.30ish. Might try to find some protein bars for my long flight though.


liza36 on 11/28/2011:
I'm just getting caught up with everyone, and was happy to read about your date. Sounds like it went pretty well. I agree that doing something casual like shopping at Target is a sign of being comfortable with each other.

The acupuncture sounded scary! It sounds like that guy made some pretty bad mistakes. At least you got out with your eye in tact! If you feel like your ankle is doing better, that's great. Maybe just a different person next time!
