(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 122.0

after my massive breakfast, i actually got productive cleaning and organizing everything i could at home. then, i went out to do everything: bank to meet with a rep for some important business, post office, radio shack to make a quick return, library, some store browsing in a few stores in my neighborhood, haircut which took far too long to wait for (an hour of extra waiting, but i was so tired i didn't care!), pharmacy, lol...doctor....and the gym for a good upper body weight workout!

6am snack: plums: around 120

7am big breakfast, is ok!, lots of toast, with oatmeal and yoguts: 880 cal.

total so far: 1000 lol....grrrr....i wanted to have a lower cal day but i see that i cannot achieve that today - and i KNOW that if i TRIED to eat lower, I would definitely FAIL and BINGE, so, here's to making a more moderate decision, to eat normally, like 2200 cal, and call it a nice day off...off from work, that is....

11am snack: protein bar and drink mix: 200

1pm lunch: almond milk 60 with fiber cereal 120 and greek yogurt 120 all with cinnamon and chocolate stevia flavoring...300 total calories, good.

1500, good.

snack: bar 150

snack: bar 200

snack: bar 150....and goodnight.

2000 cal. very good.

exercise: walking around town during the day doing errands, full weight routine at the gym...finally! hadn't done it since Thursday evening and happy to get into the weights routine.  I am noticing results for sure.  ohhh, and I'm finally 30. so, I was very close to my goal of weighing in the teens. I weigh in the low 20's & I will continue to make progress...of choosing to eat good calories for my output and working on not binging.  I am doing well & I plan to acheive big goals in my fitness this year.  This is the year I plan to get into the police academy...or maybe next year January.  I am going to change my life this year, my 30th year.  I am going to choose my own destiny and there is NO DOUBT I will be more successful than I ever thought I could be.  I AM GOING TO BE A POLICE OFFICER, WHETHER IT BE IN A YEAR FROM NOW OR A YEAR AND A HALF, I'M GOING TO WORK ON MY FITNESS AND MAKE THIS MAJOR LIFE CHANGING GOAL HAPPEN.  I WILL LIVE THE SATISFYING, PRODUCTIVE, EXCITING LIFE THAT I WANT TO LEAD & NOBODY IS GOING TO CHANGE OR TAKE THIS GOAL FROM ME. 

Progress as of today: 13 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

I had a fabulous time on my trip :-)

Lots of wonderful experiences. much to talk about, but just gonna have a peaceful night now & relax.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

grrr, came home and had dinner, unexpecected late bday dinner pie :-( was good, happy my parents wanted to celebrate, but ate too much today bc of it.

big dinner w/ unexpected pie slice: 1100

other calories: 1550

total cal: 2650. eh. would have been good if not for the DAMN PIE. kinda angry bc it is holiday season (jewish) and i really might have a hard time with all the temptations, along with birthday season in my family. lots of bdays these next few months....

blech.

Progress as of today: 13 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

inmorning on 09/11/2012:
I guess we get an early start on the holidays, now that I think about it. Pies are a big temptation to me too. They seem to disappear so fast. Just a thought, since you are worried about going backwards on holidays, maybe allow yourself 1-2 spoonfuls of the really tempting stuff. I say that like I am good at it but truth be told and my weight will attest to the fact that I am not. But, it is my ideal. Glad you had a great trip.

A trip sounds fun. I have never been to Canada. I suppose I should go sometime. I was so upset when I was visiting friends in Washington for about 3 weeks one summer and found out after I left how close we were to Canada. Have fun on your trip.


sailingeagle on 09/07/2012:
Enjoy your trip Horn! I meant to thank you earlier for the veggies suggestion. I had some recent computer problems, but I'm back now! :) Hope you have a blast!

Change of plans this AM, I will go to bootcamp class at 9am then the beach later on.  At first, plans were to go to a rather far, but really nice beach.  But since we are going locally now, I can go to bootcamp too! yay.

I'm liking my weight chart to the right...Going DOWN. Even slow is good, ladies.  122 looks nice for starting September.  I can't even imagine what I am going to feel like at 119.  This is far away from now, but it's gonna happen!  Maybe by end of September or October...

Big breakfast: lots of fiber one 200, small banana 110, almond milk 60, cinnamon, protein bar 210: 580.

edit: total calories a bit high because we had a nice family dinner, i had an extra hotdog and bun followed by some cake. was worth it for a change of pace.

total calories: 3150 today. not terrible, like i said, not all days are perfect! :-)

exercise: bootcamp for an hour, lots of walking at beach and even some at the mall!

Progress as of today: 13 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

Good Morning :) Wow I am sure you are super stoked for a 3 day weekend and 2 consecutive short work weeks to boot? WINNING LOL Have a good workout!

exercise: bootcamp, walking at mall after dinner with my best friend :-)

I've decided to lay low on any crazy dieting, as you all know....trying to just be happy till my 30th bday on September 9th....maybe some extra attention to calories after that point, but now i'm just trying to make it to my bday in toronto!

dinner: with my friend christine, new place & there should be lots of healthy veggie choices! :-)

exercise: bootcamp in AM...and not really anything else, i may take a walk, but maybe not, kinda tired and wanting a nap. I also have some paperwork/bills to take care of at home...

Hello, have a good weekend.

Truly, do have a great weekend.


V on 08/31/2012:
Wow i think this is the earliest that you have left work ever! Yippee, I hope your weekend goes just the way you want it <3 Do you have Monday off as well? That would be a bonus!!


selina on 08/31/2012:
I looooove avocados!


Bikiniwax85 on 08/31/2012:
I know how it feels! Lack of sleep and crazy life turn my attitude rotten!! I hate it. I had a nice long sleep yesterday feel great! Was not being to sensitive or anything just being the fun me that I used to be! BTW, your breakie looks yummy just what I needed! Going to copy that tomorrow. Hohoho


Kati on 09/01/2012:
wow HOP, I really like your previous entry about religions. You're so right! Respect - it should be all about respect. Unfortunately humanity's past shows us how certain beliefs destroyed others' lives. :( I choose to respect everyone, and I hope they do the same with me. My religion though... is called: healthy living & exercise. :) You should have guessed this one :P
