legcramps - Friday May 14, 2004

Weight: 143.0

The weight fairy came by yesterday, and since she was rude enough to tell me that i'd gained a pound i'm going to therefore POST that pound so that I have to stare at it every day hereafter.

I did not, in fact, exercise yesterday. I got home around 9pm, and pretty much fell straight into bed. I'm still tired today - I wonder if I have some sort of nutritional deficiency. Anyways, the retirement social did NOT have less than desirable food. But I, however, DID have a less than desirable attitude towards the buffet table. I had my regular soup for dinner, cappacino in the morning, and sunchips in the afternoon. At the social I added to that two cups of coffee (what??? I don't even DRINK coffee), a chicken breast smothered in some kind of sauce that is still unknown to me but very, VERY good, some white rice and potato salad, and topped it all off with caesar salad. With the dressing on top. Phooey. I should have known that the day before official weigh-in would be the day I screw up.

Plan for today is soup for dinner, sunchips, and a turkey sandwich for supper. No cappacino for me today which made me very hungry this morning for some reason. I had my sunchips already and now i'm wondering how i'll get through the afternoon with my day's worth of snacks already eaten. More than likely, I won't. So the question becomes - what will I choose to snack on later? Yeesh, that's a hard one. I'll have to let you know on Monday, right now I really have no clue as i'm stuffed full of soup and sunchips at the moment. I think the gain in weight had something to do with my hunger this morning. Click - would you call that emotional eating? Weight fairy ups me a pound, I stuff my face so that weight fairy is.......right? Yeah, that makes sense.

Good luck to all today.

Do you ever put the chips in the sandwich? We used to do that with potato chips in high school and it was SO good! You really didn't do so badly at the social except for doubling up with both rice AND potato salad..It was a rather healthy meal. That pound might have just been normal fluctuation.

Ah yes, I see now, biscottibody. Have to agree with you there. Almost everything is easier when you're down an extra few pounds.

Okay, so.....not a good day yesterday.

Big Dunce move #1: a lovely springlike snowfall of about 5cm. Well, at least this one wasn't my fault.

Big Dunce move #2: deciding to have a beer anyways, even though ball was cancelled.

Big Dunce move #3: deciding that since ball was cancelled I should cancel my exercise routine for the day.

Big Dunce move #4: having another beer.

Big Dunce move #5: feeling so depressed about having to tell diet diaries about my follies and crying into my pillow before bed last night. Or, should I say this morning at around 1:30am. Geez.

I ended up having four beer last night. Four. And eating more than I said I was going to. I had my soup for dinner and sandwich for supper, but as the evening wore on, I got hungry. Around 7pm, I decided I needed something to eat, so my boyfriend and I went to a restaurant where I got a caesar salad. But by that time, I was so hungry I forgot to tell the waitress to leave the dressing on the side. Fortunately, I ate half of it, left the toast, and drank two cups of tea instead. But that beer is what hurt me yesterday. So of course I woke up this morning 2 pounds lighter. Which i'm not posting because we all know that it won't stay like that.

So the most depressing thing about last night was the fact that I knew I would have to face it and realize that i'd screwed up. I'm such a baby. I'm 27 years old and i'm scared to tell you that i'm not perfect. I need a quick dose of religion or something.

Today's plan is: soup for dinner, sandwich and soup or salad for supper. I have to go to a retirement social tonight, i'm hoping that the food will be less than desirable so that i'm not tempted by the huge buffet. Yes, fruit and veggies only, fruit and veggies only. Pound into brain. Brain into mush. Mush down the drain. Exercise? Who, you say? If i'm back in time - but don't cross your fingers for me or they may stay that way - permanently.

Have a good one my friends....

Beer is my weakness. I can't have just one, or even two. Every now and then I slip up like you did yesterday. I'm saving those days for football season. I just can't enjoy a game without beer.

So yesterday was better. Let's see, I had soup for dinner, and a turkey sandwich for supper. Add to that one (count that, only ONE) small cappacino in the morning, and a 50gram bag of (you guessed it) sunchips, and that was my day. I have to admit, I also had 1/2 a beer last night while watching the tube. I got to sleep early though, and had a great rest.

My exercise yesterday was passable if nothing else. I played some catch and then had batting practise, jogged around the field for balls a few times, then went on the bike for 5 minutes. Yes, I did it. It doesn't matter that I only went on for 5 minutes, the wonder is that I went on at all!

Today I have a ballgame and that plus hopefully another 5 minutes on the bike will be my exercise for today. Soup for dinner, sandwich for supper and since i'm already working on my cappacino for the day, I guess i'll add that in too. I drank three bottles of water/ice tea yesterday, hoping for close to the same today.

Everyone have a great day today, stay strong!!!

Good Job!-Kayla

So you're kinda stuck on Sunchips for the moment?

As for your question about between now and 150--I was referring to the jogging--I wouldn't have thought that 5 or so pounds would make it harder to do the jog, but I remember when I was at 150, I could go just a little faster.

Have a good one and keep up the good work!

Oh woe is me....

Did you know that a 50gram bag of Sunchips is 250 calories??? I had one yesterday afternoon. Along with 3 cappacinos which I hardly ever drink. Other than that I had a bowl of soup for dinner and a caesar salad for supper, with a slice of garlic bread.

However, since I had to make a trip out of town, I got back fairly late and - yep, you guessed it - no exercise.

Oh, I also had a beer with my supper yesterday. Without the usual 'glass of water with each glass of beer' thought coursing through my brain. So yeah. That's that. New day.

Today's plan is soup again for dinner, salad for supper - probably another bag of Sunchips so I might as well add it in right now - limit of one small cappacino and as much water as I can swallow. Tonight I have to get groceries. I'm hoping to pick up some turkey, whole grain bread and lettuce to make sandwiches for supper, and some cans of soup so that I don't have to keep going to Robin's donuts for dinner.

I need to spice things up once in a while otherwise I can't stay on a diet, but I hate cooking so I have to look for it in other ways. My meals may sound simple to you, but these sandwiches are the first step i've made towards making my own meal in at least a couple of weeks.

I know. Go me.

kayla on 05/11/2004:
sandwhiches ROCK!!!!you can cut them up and spread them out and you can put all the flavors inthem ... If you are going to eat the sunchips then you know I say savor them! No use hating you while you eat them! I have found if you are eating a salad and you want to spice it up salsa with your noramal dressing add a lot! Saying for the day...EVERYONE FIGHTS NOBODY GIVES UP!!!starship troopers -Kayla

I did alright this weekend, sticking to chicken most of the time, and salad for the rest of the time - although I did sneak in a bag of nachos yesterday evening. Not too good with the water though. One bottle I had to mix with iced tea powder just to be able to drink it. That happens sometimes, i'll just have to live with it. Today is good so far, I decided on a bowl of soup for dinner instead of salad, and i'm glad I did because it was very good chicken soup. I'm hoping to stop off somewhere for a salad later, but I have to do some travelling right after work, so i'll probably be starving once I get home. Hopefully i'll pick something healthy to eat. Nevermind, I WILL pick something healthy to eat!!

My exercise was mostly walking, I don't have much to do with the stationary bike at the moment. I hope to change that - I have so much to look forward to this summer and I really want to be able to look the part too, you know? Ughhh, I just need motivation for RIGHT NOW instead of two or three weeks from now.

My grandma gave me heck yesterday for having such a messy car. I know, grandma, please forgive my lazy a$$.

I checked the scale yesterday and it still reads 142, so I guess I won't be changing it any this week. At least it didn't go up.

As far as i'm concerned, yesterday was a bust. I started eating first thing in the morning, and kept going until bedtime. I had a bag of chips, a coffee, 2 6" ham and cheese subs, 2 cans of orange juice, one bottle of lemonade, a fruit cup, a chicken burger and a cup of french fries. I was sick though, so not a lot of that actually stayed down.

There was no exercise yesterday either. Today, for some unknown reason, I can barely walk. It sure feels like I did some kind of workout yesterday, but i'm pretty sure I didn't. Oh well, hopefully today I can work some of this stiffness out. Congrats to all those dders who have reached goals and are doing so well!!

biscottibody59 on 05/07/2004:
Wow--missed you while you were gone:-) Good to see you back--and doing well--will catch up on all your entries later! Have a good one--how's your weather this time of year?

Well I have to say I had kind of a bad night yesterday. I didn't do my exercising, besides playing slo-pitch. It was really cold out though, so I think I may have burned more calories. Does that count? I hope so...

Eating was really good, I had salad for dinner and supper, and a handfull of sour cream and onion chips. Today we're not starting out so well, i'm not in the best of spirits. We won our first ball game, so you can imagine what happened afterwards. We'll leave it at that.

So far i've had a small french vanilla capp., and a 50gram bag of chips. Just can't get away from those chips. Well, I have a good excuse today. I don't know any better.

Isn't that a good excuse??

Wow, day three and still here. Still going, too, with the diet thing. Yesterday I had another caesar salad instead of a sub for supper, and then I indulged a bit in crackers and tacos at the candle party. I had 10 of each, and some sausage and cheese as well. I think I did okay, drank just over 5 Litres of water, worked out on the stationary bike for exercise.

Today I had a salad for dinner and close to 2 Litres of water so far. I plan on the bike again tonight, and slo-pitch - although the weather isn't looking so good. If the weather doesn't cooperate, I should have enough time to get on the elliptical and work out for a bit. Right now it's snowing outside. I know, it's amazing, but it is.......

I feel ill, but I shouldn't be. I'm not sure why, but my muscles hurt - all of them. But I feel better when I work out, and when my stomach is not empty, so i'll work on that for now. I hope everyone is doing well, and I promise to comment on your entries when I have more time. Ha, that may not be for awhile, but you have my promise.... take care and goodnight.

Well, here I am again. I made it, two days in a row, it's a miracle! Does this mean i'm back? Well, not quite yet.....

I'm having a long day at work today. I want this day to be over, but yet it seems like this day cannot hear me gripe. I did so well yesterday, up until.....

I drank 6.5 Litres of water yesterday, had salad for dinner and a 6" subway ham and cheese sub no mayo for supper. I did my thing on the stationary bike. Everything was going great, until I decided with my guy to watch a movie. Okay, well, I didn't flub badly, all I screwed up on was chips and dip. And not even that much dip because it tasted disgusting. But.....a lot of chips. And that, my friends, is where the story ends.

So far today i've had 3.5 Litres of water, salad for dinner and a mug of green tea. I have planned another sub for supper (i'm much too busy right now to start cooking anything), and then it's workout time. After that I have to deliver cheese and crackers to a candle party - hopefully i'll stay away from the cheese at least. But I really should be staying away from it all. Easy to say it now, but just wait until then, i'll be salivating and growling at anyone who dares to go near MY food. Of course it's mine. I brought it.

Anyhow, talk to everyone tomorrow hopefully - GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A GREAT NIGHT!

Hi guys. Yes, it's me again. And yes, I forgot my password - again. So, yes, I had to start a new account. And yes, it will probably happen again.......

Well I gained a few pounds in the last few months, up to 142 now. Hopefully I will be able to lose it and at the same time get ready for ball season. This is what i've been doing for the last few weeks:

For supper I switch off between fish and chicken, always grilled, no fat added to my cooking, with vegetables and either brown rice or whole wheat noodles. Dinner is usually a small salad, and I try to have an afternoon snack of some kind of fruit. I bought two exercise machines - a bike and an elliptical machine that can be turned into a stepper. I work out for an hour each day except Sundays, whenever I can, and I fit in at least three workouts with weights each week.

I had a funeral last week to go to, so I didn't get to workout as much, but I made up for it on the weekend, working out on Sunday as well. I'm really sore today and all I want to do is sleep, but i'll keep chuggin along, as always. I'm going to read through your entries now, and I do hope that you are all meeting your goals and doing the best you can!
