Why don't you get yourself checked over a bioimpedance test? It's quick, 5-min and you'll know how much you burn per day without doing anything extra. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bioimpedance

Weight: 124.5

124.5 on the scale this AM. that's nice.  back to original low weight about a month ago...time to forge ahead. i'd like to weight around 120 (maybe 119 but i know that's being really pushy) by vaca time, April 8. 5 weeks to go....but i really consider it one month because by April I am going to be thinking about vacation, not weightloss, like, i'll be content with whatever i am, because 1 week doesn't equal major weightloss, but 1 month can turn successful, sure.

breakfast: warm fiber cereal with sunflower milk 200, chocolate fiber bar 200: yum 200.

snack: protein bar, small. 150

lunch: microwave meal 400, fruit 100, tomato juice: 550

 calories before gym: 1500...

calories before dinner: 1650.

calories from dinner at bar: chicken salad: 250?

calories from beer: 400

total:around 2200-2300 = success.

exercise: 45 min cardio, stairs and treadmill slow.

Weight: 124.5

(3250)....doing better :-)

what a day, it was alright. but i've been moody bc i haven't been sleeping enough...

anyways...

 

breakfast: (plus earlier calories) oatmeal, yogurt, protein/fiber bar: 550.

calories before working out: 1550

calories after working out: 500.

total: 2050 = good day, especially bc of waking up in the middle of the night.

calorie savings: a nice 200 cal saved = better than eating too much! yup.

exercise; mostly jogging, some walking, 4 miles. pushups, bicep curls.

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

1am: Can't sleep at all, hungry. big banana and tea. 150. I chose a banana because it is good for my "loose" digestive problems. it binds everything together which is what i need at work...

seriously up all night, now it's 3:30am. cannot sleep at ALL! not a good week for me. my parents are away and i was supposed to catch up on sleep. instead, i have an a$$ of a boss who is making me work extra because they are away. not happy at all. my skin was beginning to clear up...hopefully it will still, despite a major lack of sleep.

my weight: with wet hair, 126 lbs. as you can see, i have maintained my weight these past few months at about a calorie average of 2200-2250 per day. that's very high, thankfully, that i can eat so much and not gain. however, it is hard wark - finding the time for weights and cardio. so, now, it's some "crunch time." i've got a vacation yay yay planned in April. March is not gonna be easy...as i'll pretty much be working straight 6 days per week...but i want to lose about 5 lbs by vacation. i'd like to weigh 120, maybe in the teens, but that is pushing it! :-) i am going to try as hard as i possibly can.....but not too hard, because then it backfires. even weighting in the lower 120's will be fine...why push it!? :-) trying not to worry & be happy...

Umpqua on 03/01/2012:
It sounds like you need to set some boundaries with your boss or he will continue to take advantage of you. No job is worth sacrificing your health and well being. I got mono while working too much in high school and then pneumonia at my first job after college (crazy hours there). You have to say no and set limits, too many bosses will keep pushing you without any regard for you.
