Weight: 140.0

*just studied almost one hour and in an effort to take a mind breather, i'm gonna comment on some of your entries! *

I'm sorta ashamed that my eating is influenced so much by this upcoming test and studying.

9:30 snack: bar before 3.5 mile walk:200

11:30/12:00 breakfast: big, but healthy types of foods. oatmeal 150 w. lots of cinnamon, made with a glass of milk 80, bran 40, with 2 hard boiled eggs 160, and a greek honey tasting yogurt 150: 580....forgot the large peach...i knew i was forgetting something, 100 more.

tsf: 880, good.

snack: ice cream 240

1120.

snacking/binging: 2 servings pretzels 250, ice cream 200, peanut butter and jelly sandwich 600: 1050 right here.

tsf: 2170...gah.  the day is not done. that total is up to 2:30pm today.

snack: bar and drink 150

dinner: probably a protein bar and diet soda. small bit of chinese food. 500

2820. total.

average of today and yesterday per day: 2100 per day. good!

plan for tonight, gym -  weights. not sure if i want to.

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 15 lbs to go!

loveray on 07/23/2010:
have a great one- sounds like you had an amazingly successful day yesterday!! yay! xo


moogy on 07/23/2010:
It is 2am here in Sydney, can't sleep - so reading diaries instead. A good day starts with a good breakfast and a good plan - you have both. Have a good day.


hollybelle on 07/23/2010:
Hey HOP - I don't know if you are picky about bread - I am - to a point - and used to only eat the really good multigrain bread that's like 110 cals per slice. I have found a "light" bread that is only 50 cals per slice and 5 grams of fiber that seems to be like regular bread (although not as good as the 110 cals per slice kind, it is good). It's Nature's Own brand and I've been using it to make PBJs 'cause I love them. When I saw your PBJ above I thought I'd tell you about this bread.


Moody3 on 07/23/2010:
Curious~How long does it take you to walk 3.5 miles??


moogy on 07/23/2010:
Oh Oh What happened between 2am and 7.30am when I went to bed. I think you are really feeling the pressure. How about planning some healthy snacks when the munchies hit. Throw out the jelly and the ice cream, they seem to be a bit of a problem area. I am sure you can get through this and eat healthily. Tomorrow is another day, deep breath and start fresh. Hugs.

loveray on 07/22/2010:
what kind of bran do you use? i used to eat these norwegian crackers, and they were great. yea, im not sure about a relationship with john- he has a lot going on with trying to pass the bar and get a job, etc. and im still grieving seth. i will admit that when i was sitting there yesterday, i got this weird sensation that this person will be in my life for a long time...anyway, i hope its just not me trying to create a distraction of some sort. love to you, xo.


skinnygrlwithin on 07/22/2010:
You can study this much too... are you passionate about what you want to do? Do you need these exams to do what you want to do??? That's all I think of when I start to lose focus...that there is nothing else in this world that I would want to do other than a lawyer...and if suffering for two months to end up on the other side being able to be part of such an honorable profession (yes I do think it's honorable... at least most of it lol) than it's worth it...just think about how important what you want to do is to you...and use that to push you

loveray on 07/19/2010:
sounds like a fabulous weekend:) walking along the water is my ultimate favorite exercise. i wanted to tell you that i may be up in NYC at the end of August for business...if so, i would love the chance to finally meet you in person- and maybe you can introduce me to one of your favorite NYC healthy eateries. have a wonderful week and love.

lol, i can't believe i didn't finish logging in friday or saturday. Now, it's Sunday. Time is moving so fast!

ok, some of you may find this kinda weird. I was taking some naked pictures of myself, to see it from the camera's point of view i guess, and what I see is a need to lose weight for sure. I guess that makes sense as I've been eating really poorly lately as I try to study. I'm starting to get a bad pouch in my stomach area...So, I am working on this, as well as continuing my weights, abs, back routine...I'll get my body back...I am trying starting NOW.

early snack: 2 small fruits: 100 at most.

breakfast: some almond milk, 1.5 protein wraps: 200 total.

snack: greek yogurts 290, rest of the wrap 40: 330

lunch carrots 50, sandwich 300

dinner: cheesecake factory: 1200? i think this is an overestimate, but it works.

great day with christine!.

was feeling really hungry late at night, yogurt 130

2260 total. great! really, i'm happy with it!

exercise: 30 min bike ride in the AM, walking at the beach at least 1 hr but i think longer!

tangalyn on 07/18/2010:
hehe weird it may be, but i have done it many times for that reason, and im sure i will again 30 or so pounds from now :) good luck with all ur goals today, have a good one!!


loveray on 07/18/2010:
good luck with the photo documentary- i have never done that, but seems like a good tactic to stay in reality:) hope you have a happy and successful day. xo


KathyBlue on 07/18/2010:
not weird at all, I wanted to do the same but.. I have too much weight and I will need a surgery so for me dressed photos are fine by now


skinnygrlwithin on 07/18/2010:
I also agree...not weird... I haven't done it but I have definitely thought about it... I think I'm going to start doing it after the bar ... I also bought a true measuring tape and I'm going to record my measurements and weight daily... I think a photo log would definitely help too... to either inspire you that you don't look as bad as you think you do...or remind you that yes you need to lose weight! GOOD LUCK!


Donkey on 07/18/2010:
I don't think it's so odd to take pictures of yourself (naked or otherwise) to gain a better perspective of one's physical self. I do this for the back of my legs (esp. the knees), although for that, I do not have to be naked (so I'm not). Honestly, you're more normal than you think! ;-)

sending love- and thanks for your sweet messages. im trying to hang in there!! a lot of change happening at lightening speed.


V on 07/13/2010:
You are so right about the "guilt free" noodles alone YUCK! However I make put them in fat free low sodium chicken broth, i usually cook my chicken breasts for the week in the broth and it gives the broth a really good flavor,after removing the breasts I add the noodles to the broth and voila. Since I can have unlimited amounts of broth this is a great filler if I am feeling a litter hungry. I also made Mac and Cheese with the noodles as well and let me tell you it is a little slice of heaven..My friend gave me a recipe for Smoked turkey sausage Jambalaya using the "guilt free rice" I will let you know how it turns out.Have a good evening!
