Must have been so busy to forget to post yesterday!!!

Monday was 2000

Today so far I am at 1600 but thought it was 1700...either way will be 2000.

Still no cardio, but full upper body weights routine.

Last night I came home around 1am & it's good I got all that extra sleep because I didn't feel like I was falling asleep on the drive home & enjoyed watching a couple movies with my folks at that house...

Got some good sleep last night, too, and planning the same for tonight.  I will have to wean off the sleeping pills soon, but, boy do they help me.  And when they help me sleep, my body (especially my ankle now) can heal itself better. Ankle is still weak but I will be going to the gym today for upper body weights.

8am early breakfast before going back to bed: chips 200 and small banana 110: 310

Late snacks: some broth with extra pink sea salt & chips, kombucha type drink, around 90.

total here: 400.

I feel my pants are tight and that I've gained weight - so now I am determined to eat 1500 calories today.

2pm lunch: tons of veggies, some sauce, like 200 cal, oatmeal 150, yogurt 150: 500 (and not the best combo)

900. snacking: banana & coffee 200

light dinner: lots of veggies, blackberries, and a protein bar. 400.

total: 1500 or so, GREAT!

grannyannie on 05/10/2015:
Hope your ankle is strong soon.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/10/2015:
me too :) the brace I bought seems to be helping, but I wont attempt cardio until the pain is fully gone.


OhioRaven on 05/11/2015:
Have a good day, and night.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/11/2015:
Thanks OR :) you too!...and I am!


Umpqua on 05/11/2015:
I've had success with valerian root and St. John's Wort for sleeping if you're looking for something less potent. I hope your ankle continues to improve!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/11/2015:
Thanks UMP! by the way, I can't remember if you are one of my fb friends...are you JLL? I think you are, but i'm not completely sure :(

And thank you so much for the sleep suggestions, I may need them. last night, I woke too early and went to bed a little late, lol.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/11/2015:
...but thankfully no sleeping pill!


biscottibody59 on 05/11/2015:
Hope you enjoy your week!


Umpqua on 05/12/2015:
JLL is Sweetpea, we haven't seen her around these parts in a long while! She also has 2 boys so I can see the confusion. I will look for you on FB!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/12/2015:
sure...I am friends with her...my first name is Jacquelyn


Umpqua on 05/13/2015:
Found you, I think.

No more than 2200. No exercise. And tomorrow will be minimal walking for the entire day. Need to mend my ankle, then strengthen, then train more.

sleeping pills helping a lot...this week i'm just taking Nyquil bc I have allergies and a hard time breathing at night - and with Nyquil, it knocks me into a good sleep, all night :) and no breathing problems. I gotta do what I gotta do.  planning on making it to the gym tonight (skipped Tuesday) for upper body weights bc my ankle is a little stronger, but still recovering from too much cardio.

 ankle is bad...will need to rest it bc I don't need another long-term problem like the shin splints!

did full weights workout, no cardio.

total calories: 1900, perfect.

OhioRaven on 05/07/2015:
Careful mixing the two.


Umpqua on 05/07/2015:
It seems like everyone is suffering from allergies. I'm glad you're getting some good sleep in!


Maria7 on 05/07/2015:
Hoping you feel better. Take good care of yourself. :-)


grannyannie on 05/08/2015:
Feel better!



Horn_Of_Plenty - Wednesday May 06, 2015

Weight: 126.0

1450 cal before coming home from work...

home: 150 cal in fruit & veggies, hopefully not more (cooked in some oil...), then, more calories in fruit smallest banana and 2/3 of a quart of strawberries not more than 250, then a protein bar 200. so, total here: 600, good!

total today: 2050: I actually walked a little bit when I got home & did a little bit of laundry, too, bc it was piling up already & I know it's going to be busy for me on the weekend for Mother's Day (my mom!) & wanted to get some laundry done early :)

so, calories are good, once again.

on the weekend, i'm going to limit calories if I can - I think i'll be in the mood :)

Plan is maybe to fast all day Saturday up until dinner - or something similar or maybe do a morning fast on both Sat / Sun - or maybe nothing, just thinking about it.

I did far better today calorie-wise. and that makes me happy.

I didn't exercise at all,  no walking at lunch. My weak ankle is bothering me a bit & I realize I need to rest it...so no gym tonight...taking a break until my ankle feels better. If it still hurts Thursday/Thursday evening, I'll skip the gym then, too. I can't push anymore with that, don't need bigger problems.

Calories till I reached my home after work: 1350 :) excellent!

Dinner: cooked cabbage & kale no more than 100 (a ton & even though I'm bloated, from overeating last night & not being able to get it all out of my system as it takes awhile, it was a good option to have the veggies & be satisfied. Then I had a more sugary/natural/chocolate covered greens/protein bar 300, and half small grapefruit 50, and drink 10. So around 450, good.

Total today: 1800, which is a good amount after a binge-day.

Glad I made better choices & it's def bc I was more prepared today, as well.

Horn_Of_Plenty - Monday May 04, 2015
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.0

early breakfast: lots of fruit - 6 oz blackberries, 1/2 banana, apricot, warm water & whole lemon 200 cal.

finally gave into the binge....lost control after work.

1500 calories before coming home. I may skip gym tomorrow because my ankle is giving me pain (from overusing it a week ago, Sunday.)  I continued to do too much this past week, so it never got a chance to rest.

And now, I feel like having a big UP DAY, calorie-wise. Not the smartest, but we're not always smart...whatever...

vegetables calories up to 300, then a potato 200 more, and leftover shrimp/scallops portion 200 cal, then chips 300, 2 apricots around 50, one bar 200 natural type, another bar natural type 250: 1500 calorie dinner.

1500+1500 = 3,000 = could have been worse. still I can actually easily balance this with several good days. also I was 200 calories above on the weekend. at least I am full now....and extremely bloated. Thank god for loose tops = tomorrow. can't take off any days, need to learn how to get through.

this binge was not really too much of a backslide, it's very manageable...hadn't binged in awhile, maybe, a month at least?

woke up feeling sick in middle of the night, followed by sick during the day & ankle pain all day = made me just right in the mood to binge. too much uneasiness = set up to fail....I could have done better, but, didn't.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

Sounds good. Have a great day.


Umpqua on 05/04/2015:
