Weight: 0.0

Having a very hard time sticking to my plans.

I didn't fast today and had at least around 2,000 cal. all at one sitting.

I have gained weight and I am going to be very sorry I binged so much when nothing fits.  Not sure what my problem is lately, but eating isn't helping me with anything.  probably bc I was running around too much this morning and when I got home at 1:30pm I gave in.

I am giving myself an ultimate goal of fasting Christmas (I have off, but don't celebrate) thru day after Christmas.  If I can do this, i'll burn off at least 3,000 cal. right now I am up 6,000 cal!  yeah, that many cals.  If I had fasted today, it would have been 4000. not sure what I am doing..

well, in order to knock off 6,000 cal, I need about 3-4 days of fasting...

on the days off during Christmas, I can try again....this coming Thursday, Friday, Saturday (going out to eat with friends), sunday....I can eat relatively little amounts and totally make up for this horrible binge cycle...and then I can eat NORMALLY for the long New Years weekend...but I AM going to have to sacrifice eating somewhere or the weight is going to start to stick....

just how to sacrifice...I think Christmas, Friday after, and Sunday....that would be a good sacrifice. followed by normal eating Mon/Tues/Wed and then a long weekend maybe also to eat less.

if I did this...I could start the New Year off well. otherwise, lots of work to do...

Good luck!


SkinInTheGame on 12/21/2014:
I am right there with you!! Call me HORSE because I graze when I'm not hungry! I like the fasting on certain days idea! Your strategy sounds very smart!

Besides the weight coming off a bit and sticking, I like the way I feel when I have discipline!

7:30 Breakfast 550 pumpkin with cinnamon and stevia 50, 3 tablespoons pb 300on 2 wrap100

10:30 Snack: 700 yogurt with cinnamon, stevia, flax, 3 vitamin chews, almost 4 servings chips

1250....almonds 200, nut butter 300, hot pocket 250

2000 so far.

Fruit cooked strawberries with stevia and a grapefruit... feeling like I forgot to list something? 100. Yup, the rice with butter. 260.

2360. And an orange. 2450. Sounds good to me!

and out to dinner tonight...planning to indulge

Dinner was around 2000 cal. Huge burger with cheese, buttered bun, fries, homemade chips, salad and dressing,bread dipped in oil, fried shrimp.

Total 4500

I was over my calories before this weekend started by around 3500 and now I am over calories by around 4000. I need two whole days of fasting, at least. Doing really bad with eating these days. Really what I need is probably exercise....in the new year I plan to go back to it much more.

Have a nice evening out.

Calories thru lunch 1250.

Dinner: fish and some sautéed spinach 250 or so, was a small amount. Then big dessert 2 tbsp nut butter 200, pumpkin 50 at most, tofu 100, chia seed pudding 150...500...followed up with more wrap and nut butter 350 more! Total here: 1100 eesh.

Total: 2350 decent....may even choose to eat a lil more.

Exercise some push-ups and arm upper body cycling.

Guessing around 500 over this week.

And overall, I need to cut down 1 lb.

So by fasting only 1 dAy, I can eliminate around 1/2 pound but no more. Gonna eat real light tomorrow and fasting all day Sunday till Monday morning.

Hi Horn how have your legs been lately. You have not mentioned anything for a little while. Good luck with your fasting. Have a great evening.

Hey. I planned to exercise but somehow I ended up working late again. Almost 2 full hours extra.

No exercise.

Calories are around 2300-2350 bc I decided to have some fudgy dessert. Worth it. I did do abs this morning. Now reading before bed soon. Exhausted since I didn't sleep well last night.

I have been having more salt and I think it helps me feel better.

SkinInTheGame on 12/18/2014:
Bummer that work priorities got in the way of exercise!!

Happened to me a few times this week!


museumgirl on 12/19/2014:
Life happens. Glad the dessert was worth it, though :) Have a good day

100 cal turmeric drink with lemon, almond milk and stevia. I made it. Also half cup canned pumpkin with cinnamon and stevia. 100

Breakfast: English muffin 100 with butter 50, egg 100, lox 50. 300. Coffee? 50

Snack protein bar 200

650.

Lunch healthier kind of chip and spicy tomato juice 200, eng muffin 100 with veggie burger 120. 420. And an orange.

Snack yogurt 100 fat free Greek.

1250...plus also some candy so 1300. Then driving to give my gift to my favorite, cute physical therapist. I have a crush on him and we do text sometimes. He's single and 11yrs older but looks more like my age, 32. Like I said, he's sweet and I haven't seen him in around 2.5 months.

I haven't set my computer up yet....but my gift to my pt was a major success. He kissed me on the cheek twice. When I arrived and when I left :) he loved the seahorse gift I got him. I got the gift bc he has them as pets and it is something special and warm that was meant only for him. I will write the whole story on the weekend, since I got home late tonight after 9pm. Worked 12 hours at my desk job. And got to him - my PT - after 8. They are open late.

Ate a ton of sautéed veggies just now a lil after 9 so I could take the anti inflammatory.400? Bit too much oil.

Total 1700, great. No exercise, abs tomorrow morning.

SkinInTheGame on 12/17/2014:
Good eating plan!

You are so funny with your crush!

Have fun!


museumgirl on 12/17/2014:
Sounds fun, this physical therapy..... :) Have a good day.

Go for it. Live seahorses are a very cool hobby. I've got a friend who breeds them. The dads carry the carry the eggs in a pouch. Too cool.

Tonight I have work and a union meeting after. Glad I not exercising in full swing. Meeting ends usually around 6:30-7 so then I can come home and relax before bed. Last Night I met up with my dad who was being overally generous and I can't thank him enough. He bought me a laptop computer for the holidays. Happy Chanukah if anyone here celebrates, tonight is the first night. My laptop got a virus and wasn't working right for a few months, so I did need a new one :) couldn't even get on the web before! Iftar dad didn't get me one, I would wait probably 3-6 months or more before getting one myself. This is great!

Early breakfast: banana 120, pumpkin with stevia and cinnamon 50, cottage cheese 90 - so around 250.

Later breakfast: avocado 80, wrap 100, veggie burger 70: 250

Snack protein bar: 220

720....

Lunch: quarter avocado 80, wrap 100, veggie burger 70, tomato juice 70, chips 130: 450.

Snack: Greek yogurt 150....but maybe skipping and instead having a hot dog at the meeting, haven't decided!

Dinner:

They had food at the meeting. Nothing healthy. Huge fried chicken subs and also some salad with dressing. And a chocolate. I don't think more than 700? Maybe?

2050-2100.

puddles on 12/16/2014:
Dads are definitely special. Wishing you a great day.


museumgirl on 12/16/2014:
Dad's are the best. happy Chanukah

Fasted till 4:30. 2 small protein bars 300, bAnana 100, avocado on extra large English muffin 350. Total 750. Once again broke down and couldn't fast the whole day. Maybe I am better off fasting till dinner, like I did today. Now taking my anti ibflammatory medicine that I skipped this morning.

Also yesterday and today calories over 2000: yesterday 4100 plus today 750 = 4850. Excess of 850 cals. Combined with around 1900 excess last week = 2750 = too much. Planning to start getting rid of the 2750 thru days of intermittent fasting next week and week after.

Shiat!!! Plus some leftover fried rice and chicken I was saving for tomorrow. Maybe around 350 more??

So....around 3100 cals excess. Almost a pound. Will have to sorta watch calories closer this week and then on the weekend I can try to gain some kinda deduction and work to dwindle this high # down.

At least I am now full and content and feeling like I want to go to sleep and it's only 5:10pm. Once January hits I need to look hopefully more to exercise and less to intermittent fasting.

Snack on gummies, peanut butter, cooked strawberries. Really craving sugar, fat and carbs.
