snack: coffee, bar 300

lunch: primarily healthy. wrap with turkey. lots of "palak" pakastani style spinach spread. which I put on the wrap as I ate it! needed something different. oh, and half a tasty apple around 600...and this natural energy shot thing (no crazy things in it, sorta!)

snacks: apple, almonds, and a protein shake during upper body excellent workout! 450 at most.

total so far: 1700

snack when I got home: more tasty pumpkin (when you add stevia) in a greek yogurt yum! 150

total: lower and excellent. proud of this total:  around 1850-1900. perfect for me, for maintenance & weight loss. go me.

goodnight all.

Good Morning...

3am snack - all natural Pure Bar. mostly fat/carbs low protein chocolate flavor.- more like a healthier dessert & that's why I will probably end up buying more, actually. (ingredients include: dates, agave nectar, rice protein, cashew butter, almonds, almonds, walnuts cocoa)..and then peanut butter on a roll with a packet of stevia - 250. total = 450, good. (will count 150 cal of this with yesterday....so, 300 here)

8am Breakfast: cereal & almond milk: 30, 120, 120 (270), roll 120 with pb and jelly (270), and another 3/4 of a roll 90, with 1/2 pb 60 (150) = around 700. eh. thank god I didn't eat the whole 2nd roll.

10am large snack: veggies 100?, crackers 180, spread 50?, fruit 50-100: 400.

1400...may eat higher cals today as it looks like it already....and I just can't start trying to starve myself. will probably stop by old navy, use all the coupons I found, buy some larger pants to wear so I am more comfortable until getting back to the size 4's (I am around a 6 now I think...)

2pm snack before doing errands: turkey 100 and spinach dip 150.

snack during errands: 300.

snack after pool 150, followed by sautéed eggplant (damn...was so good but wasn't supposed to have it now!) 350...

2250-2300. decent (but not if I want to lose weight).  overall though, good job, considering how the morning went! good for me - especially on exercise. I think I was actually in the pool 30 minutes instead of 20 (can't remember the time I started - if it was 6:50 or 7pm) either way, good job to me.

Let me plan my day so it doesn't turn into a massive eating-fest:

  1. set up new modem to be done another day
  2. read for half hour? probably not today but spent a lot of time chatting with a friend
  3. return old navy clothes purchased last week without coupon and then re-purchase with maybe a few extras (get there around 1?) got there at 4:00pm & I saved $95 dollars
  4. buy Epsom salts for my legs yup
  5. snack was this cooked seawood dish from the supermarket - AMAZING - maybe like 200 cal. and a small bar. 100.
  6. pool (even if just for 20 min) (around 3:30?) did it - around 7pm! and got an AMAZING small lesson from the lifeguard! bonus!
  7. stop by store to pick up some food...(yogurt and chicken?) supermarket closed as I was parking in the lot at 7:50 lol
  8. home for rest of day. (around 5?) home around 8

so, at least I got most of the list done. right?

woke up at 3am, decided to do laundry at 4am....slept through getting my clothes after the dryer lol and this guy had to take some of them out lol!  overall though, a good night and start to the weekend.

4-5am Breakfast 1: 450

10am Breakfast 2: 400

snack:medium coffee with milk and 2 equal. 50

BIG LUNCH around 2:45-3pm: tons of veggies & some lean deli turkey...along with 4 servings of different carbs (overdone, but so good on a snowy day) and peanut butter...lol (ended with peanut butter on a roll) - around 900 cal. lol maybe even 850....perhaps.

I am home the rest of the day (3pm on) bc it's snowing and not work a car accident. on days like today, the goal is never to eat low calories because I am around so much food I wouldn't ever stick to it....so therefore, it's better for me success-wise to indulge a little.

dinner: cooked cabbage and carrots 50?, yogurt 100, chocolate bar 200.

2100. plus 150 from Sunday AM's 3am snack....2250.

maybe a snack.

really not liking being home....and...my legs hurt. not sure what to do other than think positive and the pain will go away.

Breakfast:: veggies/fruit 100, wrap 100, 1 whole egg 1 egg white 100, yogurt with stevia 150: 450, great!

snack: bar, coffee.

very healthy day. but high stress....but so busy high stress, that it felt good if you know what I mean. unfortunately though, I reached for caffeine most of the day to power me thru - especially after lunch and before the gym that I got to around 7pm.

calories after lunch: a nice, low 1150.

snack: 50 for a few almonds, 150 for roasted brussel sprouts from the supermarket and wow were they good!, and 2 big egg whites 50. total - 250 - and this was my sort-of-dinner with diet pepsi...before gym. and tons of vitamin water zero (one and a half bottles)

during gym: more to power me thru - small protein shake with half banana and one scoop protein. 200

1600.

after gym: well, makes sense, too much - but all healthy. around 600 cal.

total: 2200.

even though I was completely inactive most of the day, the gym workout (around 45 min upper body) was extremely strong. without hardly any rest periods and doing more of a high intensity circuit training for upper body. It was good & I am sure that overall today, with that workout, I may have burned more than 2200 cal. or at least that much. :-)

Breakfast: 2 eggs 140, on wrap 100, small amount of avocado 50. 300 - good!

snack: bar, airborne hot...(maybe lay off coffee) 200

650 :)

 ended the day at....let me remember lol....2050-2150.  was good. exercise was some walking at lunch & 20 min at pool....but, my legs were hurting last night. hopefully it's just from stress and nothing else right now....thinking positive. happy Friday now!

Still debating if I would prefer the pool or abs/legs at gym tonight.  Pool is more challenging for sure - I would go for around 20 min.  I can even do abs after at home - if I really want to. - as long as I'm feeling decent tonight - I will even bring some sorta natural energy shot sample I have for after work...

Snack: piece of banana and hot airborne drink: 5-. (have a slightly sore throat - must kick it in the bud asap!)

finally satisfying breakfast: low carb wrap with turkey, one egg, avocado, and pumpkin: 350!

snack: coffee 50, bar 200

total: 650, perfect.

lunch: will be healthy...and deciding to skip pool and just do light exercise at gym (abs, few leg exercies) and maybe eat boss' food....but being sure to be healthy :-D

I will keep calories balanced, in check, including weekends...i will not get fat bc times are tough and i can't exercise - i will be smart and eat better, i know i can!

calories were great - 2050 :-) and a good core and legs day at the gym (45 min)

Uh oh. Hope you aren't getting sick. I prefer to do non-machine exercises at home. Have a great day.

1300 including lunch. good. crazy hungry lately and i Iam just not satisfied eating less...gonna have to try much harder.

1450 with snack of roasted almonds.

then, i have to eat before i go to the gym - i could do an easy routine tonight & hard tomorrow...in an effort to not have to each so much tonight before the gym....which would be a smart way to go...so i'll just to abs and legs tonight - but my abs are quite bloated!? 

yay it's fixed!!! I can post again!!!

around 2050-2100. good thing is a did a strong, very strong, 45 min weights routine with very little rest periods.  I just plowed through, doing more of a circuit-type workout! I probably burned every calorie I ate, I can say this with 99% positivity!

Breakfast:piece of banana 30, roll with one egg 200, avocado 80, yogurt with pumpkin 210: 520, good. hopefully it'll fill me up for most of the morning?

snack: decaf coffee (want to pick it up from DD...) and bar...

lunch: chicken, roll, butternut squash

total around 2350...too high, but all very healthy. getting fat bc i am not burning as much as i'm eating & it's finally catching up.

grannyannie on 12/09/2013:
The breakfast I've found that sticks with me the longest is porridge/oatmeal with dried fruits added. Have a great day!


OhioRaven on 12/09/2013:
Annie's right about the oatmeal. There is a lot in my morning breakfast soup every day or I'd be hungry WAY before lunch. Have a hood day, Hop.


skinnygrlwithin on 12/09/2013:
Ditto annie and ohio... I add a little peanut butter and honey to mine and I'm always full until lunch.


biscottibody59 on 12/09/2013:
Enjoy your evening!


horn_of_plenty on 12/09/2013:
I will have to work on having oatmeal again for breakfast I think! around 2350 cal today - a bit high, but lots of healthy items all day - much better in terms of healthy choices.

Good Morning!  Slept really well last night. Maybe 9 hours :-D Woke up feeling sore from just running errands!?, but relaxed!

7am or so Big breakfast: sautéed veggies 250?, cereal with almond milk 230 or so, natural chocolate coated vegan bar (in the place of pie or cake!) 320: 800 satisfying calories.

11am/11:30 snack before gym for upper body weights (probably pool tomorrow or just abs/legs depending how I feel): tons of canned pumpkin (around a cup) 100 with a lot of stevia in a 2% fage greek yogurt 150: total is a healthy, around 2 cups worth: 250 cal! rock on! tell me you can find a yogurt dish, 2 cups, for only 250 cal!

snack: iced decaf with extra milk 100

snack: protein shake 150

early meal: roasted veggies galore 200, 200, 100

total around 2300.

 

....now to get my booty to the GYM! then, one errand to return a moden (bought a DSL wireless router/modem and didn't realize that time warner cable only uses CABLE modems...duh!?...maybe I should do more checking next time!) I really do not want to do more than this one errand, so I won't! maybe just pick up more food for the week :) after that, I am coming home, sorting through all the health bills I can submit for reimbursement - should add up to around $150, I think! that is some good pocket change to have!

I stupidly threw out a 40% old navy discount card (only to be received through snail mail not online) and made a $150.- purchase at the store yesterday without that good discount....could have saved around $60.- NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL with using all discounts and saving them if i'm NOT SURE I will use them! Learning from that mistake, for sure. :-/
