Weight: 132.0

snack: bar 130.

big breakfast: rice cakes 220, squash in tomato sauce (yes, really...) 50, small bites of cake 50, cereal and milk 250: 570 =  good.

2 red peppers. 100

lunch: 600 bagel with lox and iced coffee

snack fruit 200, ice cream 240

1840...grapes 60

dinner: egg sandwich, milk - 350 cal

total 2250 = good! (usually i have a problem with binging after a night like the one i had...and happy i didn't. my best friend came over for a little bit - and it helped. we had lunch together. and i ate what i wanted and felt so satisfied. i'm so glad i can start this week off on the right foot!)

I had a long night, up all night until 6am. slept with a guy i met at the bar, at my house. YES. whoa. LONG night, good night, exhausted. I drank 3 shots of tequila and had two diet cokes and malibu...i usually have up to three drinks, this time i had 5. It was all worth it. Yes, sometimes you just need to break the rules, and live not a little, but live a LOT.

 

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

you're doing great, HOP! I am still struggling, yesterday went over 3500 kcals out of stupidity (excused as "work stress"), my mind was hyperventilating for some biscuits and went out of itself... I hope I am not getting myself an eating disorder here. Though I always choose the diet product, no sugar, whole grain biscuits but then I eat a whole pack (8 ounces)... I don't know why.. grr...

sweetpea1977 on 07/06/2011:
thanks HOP. I've used weights on and off through the years, but Im taking them seriously this time. My arms and shoulders are toning up nicely. Im just waiting for the rest of my body to catch up with them. :)

great job with the exercise!


V on 07/06/2011:
I have come a long way from the girl who ate EVERY meal out a little over a year ago... even if you slowly phase out processed foods, it will give you so much more energy, with all the calorie burning workouts... You will get there!!


nomoreforme on 07/07/2011:
Watery foods are the way to go for me, plus all the soups and smoothies are an easy way to get your 5 a day :) Btw, I've never heard of bean chips before, are they just potato chips made from beans?!

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...

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!
