stoopid snacks, so hard to avoid. I have binges w/ cookies... whole grain, fructose, etc. etc., doesn't matter how healthy they are, the quantities are WRONG! I just cannot stop after the first one-two. The whole box has to go, until my teeth start to ache...

hollybelle on 07/02/2011:
Happy and Confident! :o) In all circumstances! I'm right there working on this with you. I once heard or read "Happiness is over-rated". I wondered why someone would say that. After all, isn't happiness everyone's goal? Shouldn't it be? At the risk of sounding like an old F--T, I find that while agree that happiness is great and I do everything in my ability to create happiness (my own and the happiness of those around me), but there are some things now within my abilities or control and as another saying goes "S--T happens". And I find that during those tying times is when I experience the most personal growth or personal revelation. I know that I am called to be at least content in those circumstances as well. As I said - I'm working on it!

woke up in the middle of the night (3:40am) starving...which makes sense bc i had only liquids for dinner. never works to get me through the whole night. I had some chips, 300 calories more, still a good amount for yesterday.

breakfast: stomach feeling not so great. just an orange. 100.

chocolate milk 400 yeah.

almonds 200

lunch: 800 protein drink, microwave lean cuisine, chips. so damn hungry. (the drink was supposed to be another snack, but i was starving after my lunch still!)

snack: 100...packaged small cake.

too bid, but totally filling and satisfying dinner: seaweed (a lot of it dried and salted, very, very good!) 180, tofu 200, chips 300, ICE CREAM 600. was all damn worth it.  (but i gotta say, if i didn't have the ice cream, 2300 calories is so much better than 2900!) oh well!

total dinner: around 1300.

total: 2900. no regrets. will eat better next time! haha.

exercise: light. 30 min walk.

goodnight girls.

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 06/28/2011:
ahh girlie, why didn't you grab an apple or something healthier instead of chips? I never wake up in the middle of the night starving, never happened to me, hmm.


thinkpositive on 06/28/2011:
For me- got to have that protein to keep me satisfied. Hope you're feeling better.


Em17 on 06/28/2011:

V on 06/28/2011:
I am so not a fan of liquid meals :( I would have been starving too!!


hollybelle on 06/28/2011:
I have done that. Then I get up and eat something that disagrees with me and have heartburn the rest of the night!

good morning...

thanks for the well wishes!!! :-D  I feel better!

again, i woke up with a sore throat!!! just like last friday, why!?!?!?

breakfast: bean chips 120, yogurt 130: 250

snack: almonds: 200

snack: protein drink 250

lunch: maybe 600?? lots of roasted (with honey and oil) acorn squash that i bought over the weekend already prepared, strawberry cottage cheese, and a little bit of chips.

snack: smallest piece of cake, no icing...like a bite! calories listed! 100 cal prepackaged red velvet flavor!

dinner: protein shake, some kombucha. lost my appetite tonight. would rather type here! :-D around 250.

at the gym, i wore more revealing, but not too much, clothing. I didn't feel great there bc i felt that my body was less toned than usual, even though i've lost a little bit of weight. no, i don't feel i've lost muscle, but it looked that way. I do have a goal of slimming down this summer. And by the end of JULY, i would like to be 125 (or in the 120's)...don't need to be picky, but i should be able to manage it! If i don't make a weightloss change now, it's never going to EVER happen again in my life. I need to do it while i'm still young and my metabolism is still great.

total calories: 1650. (PERFECT calories. I don't like to go much lower, it doesn't affect me well and i'm too hungry the next day.)
