Weight: 124.5

^^^^ I AM ON A NICE STAYCATION ^^^^  I like this vacation very much because I am spending it exactly how I want to: exercising a nice amount everyday, getting very important things done like booking my weekend Toronto flight tickets for my 30th bday in September...and getting an awesome deal...taking care of serious banking...dermatologist/dental appts...just doing things that need concentration and/or time committments that I don't have with my usually crazy schedule.

I am happy to have this wonderful week off.  Later in the week, thurs/fri, will be spent seriously on vacation: going to special remote beaches that require a short ferry ride to get to.  They are the cleanest, most beautiful beaches in the Long Island vicinity. Also, they are very touristy, people do vacation on them, most of the people who live on this island, FIRE ISLAND, have summer homes and live elsewhere in the winter. The affluent, sophisticated type are well accounted for on these islands...but out of towners also love to come here.  Also, dogs are allowed, if you have one, on the beach! :-)

6:45am bar, fiber one, milk: 450

9:30am snacking: coffee 60, avocado/veggies 250, sauteed veggies 100, more sauteed veggies 100, more sauteed veggies 100: oopsies with the veggies, but tasty. 610, alright.

total today: around 2050, and pretty darn healthy!!!

EXERCISE: 3 mi jog/walk in AM, bootcamp class for an hour, biking to gym (like 10-15 min each way), full weight routine at gym. GOOD exercise, as you can tell.  bootcamp class - I got a cool Amazon Local deal for two weeks, and I actually planned to attend during this staycation, it's part of my staycation fun activities!!!! :-)

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

Lovely post HOP:)

I am so happy that you are having such a good time off :) Oh RYC I do my classes at home..I find one person to vibe off of/try to stick with and it kinda seems like I have a workout buddy(without the unneeded conversation..LOL) have fun at your bootcamp!!


thenewMLE on 07/10/2012:
Your staycation sounds wonderful!!! I have always loved to cook because in New Orleans, we live to eat! So the better you can cook, the better you can eat!!! My change over to the healthy eating has become an experiment for me too because I am determined to make healthy food taste great. Not just good, restaurant quality great. After my stevia cheesecake disappointment, I hit the web and went to In the Raw website and they have recipes for their products and would you believe that they don't have a traditional cheesecake recipe? Their recipe uses tofu instead of cream cheese. That right there should have told me that I was making a judgement error. And I bought the "Baker's Bag" of stevia because it is 1 cup to 1 cup of sugar so I thought that it would ideal for baking. But when you look at all their baking recipes hardly any of them are straight up stevia, they use 1/2 sugar and 1/2 stevia which is what I was trying to avoid. Anyway, back to your comment, cooking can be fun and if you can read, you can start with a recipe and the more you practice, the more you will learn what changes you can make to adapt things to your taste. I love to browse the internet for recipes and if the ingredients sound good, then I will try it. Enjoy your time off - the beach sounds awesome!

Happy Saturday: I am officially on a "staycation."  I do have some appts and fitness classes lined up, which the appts include the dentist and are very important, but on Thurs/Fri of the next week nothing planned except the beach at least one of those two days with my best friend...also this weekend Sunday with her...should be a good week to exercise and sleep better, that's my only two goals. Sleep well (not a crazy vacation where i'm up all hours!) and exercise more.

Hour Massage at Massage Envy (from an excellent, very seasoned, practiced therapist...) at 9am (early, but only time available so i'll take it!...), cardio exercise after at park or neighborhood riding bike, pick up lunch for grandma and visit her for lunch, exercise more at park or neighborhood riding bike, shower, meet friends for dinner. that's today's plan :-) maybe a stop at the supermarket for some small items on the way home tonight from friend's...

unplanned breakfast: was only gonna have a protein bar, didn't work lol...210, fiber one and milk 240: 450.

snack after massage: probably an iced decaf coffee...followed by more snacking...lol

2400 or so, great.

exercise: ehhh, 1.5 mi walk in AM, 20 min elliptical in afternoon, 15 min weights.

Definitely feeling really bloated this morning...I ate a huge dinner last night, way too much, kinda a way of procrastinating and even thinking about work today!

anyways,

breakfast: small banana 120, greek yogurts 180 w. pumpkin 60: 360...

snack: coffee?? hopefully this won't kill my stomach?, bar

lunch: maybe i should bring a yogurt to work? ...yes i should! salmon, grilled veggies/salad (this might be bad as i'm already bloated....) bread?

snack: fruit, seltzer

**I promise not to include weights tonight with my cardio routine & to get some MUCH needed sleep instead**

still promising myself no weights, which is tough when you come home angry and upset and need something heavy to get it all out of you!

1600 before late evening snack.

snack: protein bar.

total: 1800, good :-)

exercise: almost skipped, but did it. a leisurely walk :-) for over an hour :-)

exercise: not in the mood, actually, but I will get there...maybe a jog around my town? , and weights tonight after visiting grandma. jogged 30 min in 95 degree weather, felt really good to have nice cool water after and relax, later a 3 mi walk in the evening.
