I didn't care for the Icelandic yogurt too much but it does sound yummy adding the pumpkin and cinnamon to it!!

6pm snack: protein shake 100

 late dinner: 8pm: a lot but decent for a weekend/day off: health salad 100, some seaweed salad 50?, yogurt 100, butternut squash soufflee 150, the eggplant rollettes that i love, but def more than 300 cal...maybe 450 at least! : 850, OK. smallish plum 30.

POKER_PAID on 06/15/2012:
Hope you heal fast with minimal pain. I've been too scared to get my wisdom teeth extracted, oral surgery is horrifying to me. Feel better :-)


V on 06/15/2012:
I think staying at home is a good idea, I hope you get some well needed rest <3 Take care HOP


hollybelle on 06/15/2012:
OK - did you really have to have oral surgery to get a day off??? LOL Can't belive you went to the gym after oral surgery, though! It's a good decision to stay home and rest today and take the day off work. I definitely would! Your boss would, too, I'll bet! Hope you feel better and the surgery is complication-free for you. Take care and REST UP!


legcramps on 06/15/2012:
I would take the day off, yes. Hope you are feeling better soon - enjoy the R&R!

6:30am Big breakfast: huge pita, lots of egg white, greek yogurt: 500. good.

9am/11am/12am snack: protein bar, tea. 250.

1pm lunch:canned salmon 160, salad, corn/peas seasoned mix 100, pita140. pickled stuffed eggplant from boss. 700

4pm snack: grapefruit 100

7pm dinner: protein shake 230

9:30pm snack: protein shake 170

3am hungry: protein shake 150

so i ended up, sorta spur of the moment, getting my two last wisdom teeth removed. i have been wanting to, but there were problems and complicaitons iwth the last oral surgeon i went to. this time, it worked out most perfectly - and they gave me an appt the day i called. really, really nice people. thankful for them.

got two wisdom teeth out after work, gonna take tomorrow off, you heard me right! my best friend suggested i don't drive while taking pain meds...and that i should rest up! i am taking her advice....

i DID go to the gym after having the teeth removed, made sure not to do too much to aggravate the stiches/mouth (like no fast motions like lower back work that requires my head being the lowest point and lifting my upper body back up, no sit ups)...i went to the gym bc i know i'll be in worse pain tomorrow, that i didn't wanna skip the workout, so tomorrow will be relaxed, prob just walking no jogging, a relaxed day.

calories: 2050, 2 protein shakes included one before gym and one after.

overall, a good day.  good to have tomorrow off to relax and recooperate properly. maybe get a massage, haha.

Weight: 124.5

breakfast: oatmeal & protein powder: 280, yogurt 100, protein bar 170 (feeling really hungry!): 550, good.

better calories. 1950-2000 - so balances yesterday's 2560 out. good.

like i've said, i'm usually happy with up to a calorie total of 2250 per day. it's not great to eat that much continuously, but especially weekends, when i feel more of a desire to indulge, i'm very happy with that amount. I would like to eat 1700-1800 during the weeks, starting to get into that range this week. today was better than maybe everyday last week! :-) little baby steps...

exercsie: kinda fast and quick. 3 mi walk/jog at the park on the way home from work...I have to get up extra early, so i'm trying to get to bed early. I don't want a repeat of last week.

No worries about chatting it up on my page, that is what it is there for..LOL Sorry that your Mom freaks about the sound of the blender :( Yes they are delish and filling, is it possible you can get one of those "magic bullets" until you move out? You would probably have to split the portions in half to make a whole shake but it is not noisy at all..You can find one for 20? bucks if not less..Hey so are you staying in LI or moving to NYC??

Hope you are having a good weekend. I read your last three posts. I hear you about feeling tired. When i leave work if I am not physically tired - I'm mentally tired and that is worse in some ways. I have a friend riding bike with me on my recovery nights and I swear if she wasn't coming, I don't know if i'd be so consistent!


V on 06/10/2012:
Hope your day off went just the way you wanted it to <3
