(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 128.0

weight: 128....i'm gonna get there...for the weekend, calories will be higher though...it's the weekend!

wow, only slept till around 7am but i think that's bc my dad was getting ready early and he woke me...anyways, i will probably just have breakfast and read of a little. there are so many sales in the stores, i may go to buy some more pants from LOFT and clothing from Old Navy also. I have bday gift certificates too!

7:30am breakfast: fiber one and milk 250, big nature valley granola bar w. protein but not a ton of fiber (but very tasty - and i hadn't realized, the first ingredient is corn syrup, yuck-o!) 200: total 550 = perfecto.

11am snack/early lunch: fruit: 100, pretzels 120, butternut squash soufflee 280 = 500.

1050 - nice! so far (it's saturday, giving myself a break!!!!)

snack at mall: 2 aunt annie's pretzel sticks 200?, coffee 50, and a fiber one small bar 100.

big dinner: soup 100 at most, seaweed salad maybe 300 at most, large shrimp and veggies 250 or so, brown rice 100 or so. pineapple 100. let's just say around 900-100.ooooh, and some of my friend's fried rice w. chicken, lol. 200 at least more. we ate really late, i was really hungry, but i am content with all this because i was eating low cal all week - sometimes the body needs this.

exercise: 1/2 hour bike ride, walking/shopping at the mall for at least a couple hours.

so today is around 2300-2500 or so. in my book, it's a success.  nothing crazy....and dinner was actually healthy.


Progress as of today: 7 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 10/15/2011:
Ohhh...shopping! Have fun! I'll be clothes shopping in 5 more pounds!

grannyannie on 10/15/2011:
Thanks for the comment! I do often get hungry by 4pm so that's when I eat my salad. Around 10pm I sometimes get hungry but never give in!

V on 10/15/2011:
Have fun shopping! Yea my workouts are mandatory ;)

hollybelle on 10/15/2011:
I wish you were here or vice versa so you could shop with me and tell me what to buy - I need a fresh eye on my fashions! LOL I need to shop so badly. I am practically naked! Well, wearing the same old things all the time and they aren't that fashionable. I need to upgrade so much. Have a good time whatever you do today!

KayBee on 10/16/2011:
so, did your dad like the idea of the massage? :D BTW I wrote about the session at the shrink because of binge eating. Details on my recently created "binge blog": http://troubled-princess.blogspot.com/

Weight: 128.0

weight this morning: 129....not bad. I'm really gonna do it, gonna lose the weight this year! I'm totally on my way! :-)

update: dad liked the massage gift...now just need to schedule it when he can go!

ummm, good morning?!

woke up today at 4:30am. I went to bed around midnight so it may be a rough day but i'll try to make it work.....definitely need coffee today!

lots on my mind, like how to enjoy the weekend despite a feeling that i'll be exhausted when it arrives. i guess that's life...

got my dad a massage for his bday and put it on the kitchen table for him to see inside a card for him this morning...we'll see how he responds to this type of gift. I got him a massage once before but it was done by another male who removed the towel and walked all over his butt....soooooo, hopeuflly this massage won't freak him out, it's at a reccomended place and i once had a massage by the same female massage therapist. he'll be able to choose even just an hour back massage if that's all he wants. i even scheduled it for my dad...for this saturday morning. we'll see what happens!

at 4:30 i had a banana that i included in yesterday's calories. i woke up hungry and tired and my muscles were slightly fatigued, the postassium in the banana should help me.

breakfast: oatmeal 160, yogurt 80, banana 120: 360.

snack: pb crackers 190

lunch: microwave noodle dish with added in sauteed peppers and tofu. plum, definitely gonna need coffee. only around 300 for lunch. no noodles, just some pretzels.

dinner: 450...and lots of caffeine, all in my car on the way to the gym. the light egg sandwich, fruits, iced coffee, diet mountain dew.

snack: two tomatoes: 80 or so, large peach 90, two plums around 100: around 300.

total: 1550. really perfect cannot get better.

exercise: better, 20 min elliptical, 20 min stairs!!! i'm actually happy with this and the stairs left me literally soaked, so hard! such a cool machine. it's like an actual staircase that moves, not a step machine. so totally awesome and fantastic workout. it's my new fave cardio machine at the gym.

KayBee on 10/13/2011:
LOL, men are rather sensitive when it comes to their "manhood" :) but let's hope he'll get luckier this time and get a nice strong girl :)

grannyannie on 10/13/2011:
A massage sounds fantastic. For some reason my hub says he's not interested in getting one.

V on 10/13/2011:
LOL!! That would freak me out too! I hope this time he will enjoy the massage!

Umpqua on 10/13/2011:
I love getting a massage as a gift, but I know some people are weird about it. I hope he appreciates and enjoys it!

KayBee on 10/14/2011:
wow, that stair machine sounds CREEPY :) I've never seen such thing, now I'm curious.

Weight: 128.0

breakfast: fruit and yogurt: 200.

(BLACK coffee during morning...been doing this for months but not proud of it.)

snack: protein shake 230

lunch: healthy fruit, brown rice, sauteed veggies and tofu! wahoo...so happy. and BLACK coffee...total = 450. great.

world's most disgusting dinner ever (leftover junk i had at work and put in my bag for the ride home before going to the gym straight from work and getting there finally at 8pm: pretty decent type of protein bar 210, fiber one bar 140, two plums i brought for after work 80 at most - they were small, diet mountain dew from store, medium iced coffee from dunkin donuts also on the way home - needed so much damn caffeine to make the gym happen tonight 60. total = around 500 - good.

healthy snack at 9:30pm at home after the gym: tomato 40, big peach 80. total approx 120

total: 1500. perfecto calories....4:30am banana when i woke up hungry...total 1600 = great.

exercise: NO DAMN CARDIO at all = pisses me off to the core.  I'm gonna have a nice round ass by the end of this and wide ass hips ... grrrrr!

anyways, weights for an hour was my workout. I was exhausted and I have more enjoyment, much more, doing weights. So I chose the weights, as I did them Monday and they needed to be done either today or tomorrow...tomorrow I must do some cardio!  Maybe if it's nice, and I get out of work ON TIME, I'll get my a$$ to the park and walk at least 3 nice miles. i hate not doing any cardio.

KayBee on 10/12/2011:
You're doing soooo good lately! You're my hero. I've been doing good also but then things go berserk from time to time with chocolates, biscuits and any food, overall... I'm going to the shrink on Friday, it's for a psycotherapic program called "Paparocas com Medida" (in English: Nibbling in Moderation) and basically it's for binge eaters and people suffering from bulemia....

KayBee on 10/13/2011:
I just hope they won't come up with those "wait 20 minutes after eating to understand if you're still hungry or not" because binge is so uncontrollable... On the clinic's website says they use the following two books as base: Christopher Fairburn, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-Enhanced, and Debra Safer & co. Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating and Bulimia

YAY on hitting 128!

Horn_Of_Plenty - Friday Oct 07, 2011
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 128.0

I am pleased to report that I hit my goal this morning: 128 pounds.

Next goal: more challenging, 125 lbs. (i am short, not even 5'2".  This is a very realistic goal.)

I expect it to take more than a couple weeks to reach 125.  I am reminding myself right now that these types of goals take time and that I should not relapse into a binge because i'm either tired or frustrated.

I am doing very nicely. :-D

breakfast at home: fruits, tea, caramel flavored water with stevia: 120.

second breakfast: egg white on toast with tomato....later a protein shake 500.

lunch: same as breakfast, no protein shake, plums chips: 500.

snacking: plums 100, protein drink 160,  2 munchkins 80, coffee 50: around 400.

late dinner: squash soufflee 300, tomato 40, many chips (fat free type) 220: 560.

total: 2080...oh wow. a bit high, but totally normal.

exercise: 45 min cardio, 45 min weights, pushups.

I want to go to yoga tonight but I think weightlifting would be a better option. tomorrow, i plan on two classes of yoga for a total of 3 hours of hot yoga. Sunday I will take a morning yoga class.  Monday I will take at least one class. (Saturday I may not take if i have to see my Grandma, we'll see.)

Progress as of today: 7 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

Runforfun on 10/07/2011:
Thanks for the advice! It means a lot that you took the time to help me :) Have a great weekend! Congrats on reaching your goal!!

grannyannie on 10/08/2011:
Good for you!! Well done! I know too well those last few pounds cling for dear life! Getting close to that stage myself.

Congrats on your loss! What is a munchkin? I assume it's not like the ones in Wizard of Oz :P

Horn_Of_Plenty - Thursday Oct 06, 2011
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 129.0

again, a low cal day.

breakfast: fruit and small egg sandwich with tomato: 300.

snack: protein drink 200. other stuff: 50 a candy.

lunch: tasty chips and another egg white sandwich definitely small and light sandwich with tomato, fruit 550.

dinner: plum 50, sandwich (fried chicken on bun) total 450.

snack: orange pepper 50, orange 100.

total: 1650 pretty perfect if you ask me.

exercise: many pushups (probably 200 in all today) and cardio on the elliptical for about 35 min.  i am ashamed that i don't do more cardio but i don't have so much time lately. i started work at 7am and left at 6:30pm. i had dinner in my car, actually got home around 8 and went to the gym after changing and then got home around 9pm. so i really don't want to do much more - not today - no time in my opinion.

Progress as of today: 6 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

nomoreforme on 10/07/2011:
200 push ups! wow!
