total so far: 1700, good...

1800 cal, good, snack 100.

light meal: bar of some sort and drink? well, 3 bars (new types i never had, two of the being raw/vegan types) and 4% cottage cheese. still reasonable calories! bars: around 600, cottage cheese 150 more.

total cal: 1800 + 750 = 2550, fine. :-)

worked till 6pm today. 8-6. there are NO WORDS to express my freaking anger at this moment. my boss took advantage of the fact that my folks are on vacation and that i have all the time in the world, no family. i am angry and alone and upset. i am sooo very upset, you have no idea. i have no time anymore for myself, even to exercise right. i am upset, so angry. i am 30 years old and NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING to show for myself. i am depressed, so so so depressed, upset, unhappy with life. i am miserable.

i hope things get better.

the only thing that is much, much, much more upsetting is what happened today - the horrible, disgraceful, amoral, outrageous, insane shooting in CT. some things should just never, ever happen and this surely is one of them.  to shoot the most innocent is the work of a cowardly, crazy beast, not a human being.


2200 cal.

jogged for an hour, finally getting home to relax at 9pm.

parents left for a week and a half this AM...so with them packing and stuff I was up on and off all night...but I am so happy, I will definitely try hard to catch up with sleep and enjoy this time alone :-)

I will use this time to refocus on myself...getting rest at night.  Not really to delve into a new book or anything, just doing things to feel better, which is really going to sleep earlier...like being in bed at 9pm.  Also, exercise, will be very important these next two weeks.  I am off-track. Not with exercise, but with calories and food intake. I am around 125 lbs.  Gaining 5 lbs in one month is pretty bad.  It means I have definitely ate in excess.  I am going to work on this, especially now that I have this place to myself...Sleep will be crucial for eating better and getting exercise in.  As for the weekend, I may just visit my grandma, exercise, and relax....or may meet a friend for dinner. We'll see how I feel by Friday.

Breakfast: 330 granola bar, cottage cheese 4%, pumpkin.

Snack: 210 bar

snack: 210 bar

Lunch: meatballs with spinach and veggies in a pita. 600

Dinner: same as above but smaller portion on bun. some fruit. 500

snack: bar?

1850 cal, perfect.

jog and leg weights, perfect.

now, let me stay perfect and go to bed!!!! i was sooo tired today, tomorrow will be much better i can tell!

test day yay.

....last night i binged at a friend's holiday party :-(  there wasn't anything healthy, i was PMSing, i was too hungry, and add on top anxious for the test today.

there was NO healthy food and i was hungry. i ended up indulging in all the sausage and peppers (only vegetable) and at the sausage and more bc i was hungry...then desserts and once i start, i usually can't stop. i wish i left before dessert :-(  but i didn't....i have learned, i just CANNOT have dessert at these things...if i didn't have dessert, it would have been around 2500 cal. dessert put me at 4500, really!  i had ample amounts of very rich brownies, cookies, muffins, etc.

prob around 2400 calories today (much better than yesterday!)...and i prob burned it all off. lots of weightlifting at the gym after the test. some cardio of walking, not much, was very, very, very tired. i am going to bed early tonight!

Good Morning :-)

LOL LOL...glad I reread the documents before driving there (only 20 min, but still!) the test is tomororw morning, lol, NOT today!!!!!!!!!!!! Another reason to leave the party early tonight!  Now, the plan is to exercise, and go to the party...and cook and read. Maybe a massage, prob not.

It's a rainy weekend, but I plan to be positive about it. First, I will take the Nassau County written police exam this morining.  Then, I plan to relax, maybe get a massage lol (prob not though!) and then I do want to go to the city to a friend's apartment, they are having a party.  I was gonna tell them that I'm sick, can't make it, but I've been wanting to go, so I'm going to make every effort to go.  It's early, 6pm, so that's good especially as I'm up before 6am today to get ready for the test and tomorrow I also cannot sleep in.

SO busy. Last night I worked 8am-6:30pm.  I stopped at the supermarket to pick up some extra vegetables from the deli section already cooked, and ate in my car.  I reached the gym at 8pm and I got home around 9:30pm. Tired, but anxious about the test, I overate just a little, more to just keep myself awake for an extra couple hours so that I had the energy to review for everything I need to bring with me - lol, not much! They don't even allow bags to be brought in.  Anyways, I went to bed late, around 11:30 and was up around 5:30am.  I woke up very nervous and anxious, because I do realize that even though this is not the police academy I am looking to get into (looking to get into NYPD), this is the better academy (Nassau County) - and that if there's ever a change to move from the NYPD to Nassau this is the test that will give me that option.  To be a cop in the NYPD is a dream come true, to be a cop in Nassau County is like a fantasy because I know how few people they take and that most need a perfect score or have connections (for Nassau County)....anyways, I am taking this test in order to give myself this option, to be a cop for the county I live in which is also a heck of a lot safer than NYC...that and the fact that I know my county pretty darn well!!  Anyways, I am keeping up with the gym, staying fit, etc, let me get ready for this test!

6am Breakfast: wow,talk about anxiety, I can tell my hunger was fueled by it. 600 cal. fiber one and almond milk, 1/2 a slice of toasted rye, protein bar.

8:30am snack: 2 granola bars (feeling so anxious and bingey) and a yogurt with pumpkin and truvia: 420

up till 5pm 1650 so far, very good...and actually healthy, all day so far...

...going to nyc for an early party at my friend's apt, not staying late, since i have the test in the AM!
