(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 121.0

Woke up in the middle of the night at 4am restless, so i did laundry, had some tea and 2 plums and some original pop chips...good, 200 cal snack :-). 

I have had bouts of insomnia every night since Sunday, never sleeping straight through even one night. 

Weight is still 122, nice.  I eat quite a bit and still maintain. 2000-2300 cals is like maintenance for me which is nice, considering my job is fully sedentary, but i work out :-)

I still have a goal of reaching 112-115, no lower, this year. 112-115 is good, maybe that is even too low...we'll see how I feel. and you know, maybe even 120 will be fine, it's all going to be about how I feel. and I do feel pretty good now, just a bit too loose, too much padding lol, now I wanna see more muscle definition!

It's gonna be nice to have the day off bc i couldn't bear another day at work this week...

2250 cal.

exercise: nothing planned, just some walking while shopping in the AM and walking around a fair and in the city in the PM :-) a great day, especially the night spent with friends.

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

sister and mom were loud last night...sister was staying the night instead of commuting back to the city.  instead of going to bed at 10pm i went to bed close to midnight...not good!!!! :(  now i will be much more tired after work today!

anyways, enough complaining....HAPPY FRIDAY!

breakfast:

1600 cal till after my jog, 7:45pm.

big, but healthy and tasty dinner: lots of roasted veggies 160, potato chips 160, greek yogurt plain 100, an egg 80, a red pepper 40...but then too much split pea soup! lol 250, and a plum 50: 850 approx...ooopsie!

total: 2450, not crazy bad - healthy big meal is not a binge....maybe my body was needing the nutrition. and chips aren't bad - they are just fat and carbs - out bodies do need that. :-)

I am a big believer in going to places out of season. I don't like crowds to begin wtih and you are right about the rates being much better.


V on 10/10/2012:
Yayyyy I am sure you are looking forward to that :)
