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!

Thanks for the kind words. While I know my mom's comments come from a place of being uninformed, it still bugged me. Am feeling better about it today. Thanks for letting me vent.

Sorry about your study frustrations. I think that's great that you're doing something tonight to get away from the books. I think the break will do you good! Great job w/the exercise, too.
