Weight: 124.5

(3450)....yay, just under a pound of calories to get rid of....doing better :-)

it's been a rough week. highlight: tonight, on the phone, i planned a visit to one of my guy friends in Toronto. I'll be seeing him our July 4th weekend! can't wait!  :-) 

calories: 1750 cal.

savings: 500 cal :-)

exercise: hour of nice cardio, with some pushups, bicep curls added into the mix for motivation.

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

basically, my boss knows my parents are away bc i'm really stupid and told my coworkers they were away. you know what that means!? my boss is taking advantage of their being away, by making me work MORE. YEAH. i had that goal, you know, to get sleep this week, to exercise, to get to bed early. well, it's difficult when i need to be AT WORK at 7...leave the house around 6:15am. sucks. NEVER again. I should have known to keep my private info PRIVATE.

it all started off SUNDAY AFTERNOON, my boss texted me to come an hour early, at 7am, on MONDAY morning.  life really sucks right now. i'm lucky i got some sleep.

and yesterday i was supposed to be at work at 7am, but slept through my alarm and got to work at the normal time, 8. worked till 5:30pm. apparently it wasn't enough....................!

breakfast: eggs 200, wheat pita 200, yogurt 100: 550.

snack: bar w. protein.

lunch: microwave meal, bread.

snack:

dinner:

Progress as of today: 10.5 lbs lost so far, only 5.5 lbs to go!

pff, you must not talk about your life at work. They take advantage of everything... It's very dangerous. For example my colleague was sent to a remote office because she started seeing an other colleague and they suddenly started to do less extra hours, as they were leaving together, and the boss said he has been losing two good workers (he failed to see that the contract talks about 8 hours a day, and they were doing this part of course), and separated them like this... Then they broke up but my colleague is still in exile. Doesn't make sense, we're all here, the whole team, and she, some miles away stuck in a windowless office with strangers.

(3850 = just a pound to lose :-)  of extra calories)

1600 cal perfect.

600 cal burned yay. :-)

weights and slow walking.

long day worked 7am-6:30pm.

mainly, calories were low bc i have my period, i wasn't very hungry, but moreso because i was doing an assignment for my boss and i couldn't take lunch till after 1:30pm. as well, i didn't have a snack all the way from breakfast at 6am until lunch. horrible, but i lost my appetite (abnormal) because of my period (still usually not normal for me). just tea in the AM. wow. good to know it's the weekend.

woke up late...so i rushed to get ready and actually got to work early bc of the teachers being out this week, far less traffic with the schools closed. so i had breakfast near work for 15 minutes at a dunkin donuts. was a waste of calories, because then i also had a smallish but very high cal indian treat a work brought in by a coworker. it was good but just added to my breakfast calories. and then, i really was hungry, so i had my snack, only 150 cal (and the indian thing was probably also around 150). now i am up to 950 cal.

i waited to have lunch at 1:20pm and was lightheaded and dizzy by then...starting work at 8am, it is a long ways away. i had not too much, thank god, because i had some healthy food. grilled chicken, salad, tomato juice, whole wheat toast. worked out well! but, i had a lot of the chicken. so, lunch was around 600. and, then i had a couple sucking candies.

so, 1600 cal even before leaving work.

snack on the way home, i am tired and too hungry again, soy chips 2 bags and two plum tomatoes: around 300

1900...

then, i skip the gym, go home to take a nice warm shower. i'm tired. and have dinner, i think only around 350.

total: 2250. saved.

must exercise on the treadmill before my parents claim it...i'm not heading out of this house again tonight! gonna take a small walk outside later probably.
