Home from work today to get a LOT done....!

1800 total today = perfect.

___________________________________________________ 

I totally forgot to pick up Rx (as i didn't have a list, but was driving around trying to get the more important things done). so must go out again....was just about to take a sleeping pill to go to bed early...lol.

I called the pharmacy & will pick up Rx on either wednesday or thursday after work or gym. Today was supposed to be the last day they would hold my rx for me!

But I still got a ton of stuff done today. super proud of myself! 

Today i picked up the new laundry cards from the housing office as we are using a new company & i needed to get the cards in order to do my laundry!  I did a ton of laundry, paid some bills, wrote out the notary application since i did pass the test!!!! yay!!!, dropped off all bills and also two postcards at the post office, picked up some seltzers and food at a small specialty market and also stopped by the drugstore, was at bank to get stuff notarized....i think this is it?...oh, picked up already cooked food at another store...i think this is it. took from about 2pm-5pm to get everything done outside my apartment.

choosing sleep over the gym today. i am partially run-down - so it's good to sleep.

 

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

hello all :)

Woke up 4am for my trip...since last night i ended up going to bed around 8 (although i seriously believe it was more like 7:30?) and wanting a little alone time, drink my kombucha, relax & finish packing before trip :)

Getting picked up by car to airport at 7:10am....

Flight at 8:50am!

_________________________________________________________________

Definitely some kombucha this AM...and seltzer with stevia..

__________________________________________________________________

Thankful that I had my "woman's thing" start on Monday and night today or anything else. Much easier for traveling & especially the hiking and walking around a lot is not good on the heavy days...so now i'm really good to go! :) all is good. so happy for some new experiences. !!!

___________________________________________________________________

I'll be in Texas from today till Monday morning when we leave & back here Monday 5:30pm landing.

___________________________________________________________________

I am not sure if i will post here, maybe not. I may still count calories, but maybe not....i will maybe track somewhere on my phone but just looking to have a good trip.

___________________________________________________________________

Much love to this site & will prob not comment on your entries till I'm back! 

1825 6 day

I am still upset by my best friend & that we aren't anymore, despite that it was my own doing in ending it and it must feel worse on her end than mine. it's so sad.  I feel quite a bit like a piece of myself is gone. but it is what it is....life does go on....and i only have the option to go up from here...only up.   

________________________________________________________

 

I woke up a bit earlier to relax and have the kombcuha = GREAT idea. 60 cal.

Work: bigger banana 150, decaf with milk i think...

wrap with cream cheese and salami 300...not so hungry really for food right now. 

BAR 150

big LUNCH: POPCORN 100, SEAWEED SALAD LIKE 50-100, CALAMARI SALAD LIKE 50, SAUCE ON CABBAGE 200? 550 MOST.

SNACK BEFORE GYM (DECIDING NOT TO SKIP GYM) 150

AFTER GYM: 300

total - 1650 :) great :)

1720 4-day..

BED WHENEVER I DO. PACKING TOMORROW AFTER WORK - LEAVING EARLY AT 3PM. WHICH IS HELPING ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT MAKING IT TO THE GYM TONIGHT...OTHERWISE, (SORRY ABOUT CAPS, I WAS USING THEM AT WORK...)...anyways, i was starting to feel extremely anxious about my schedule from work to packing to being picked up at 7am by taxi and now i feel a TON better by getting out of work 3pm instead of 4:30 tomorrow. i can pack when i get home, have dinner, go to bed....looking to get sleep before the trip....if i can. and if i don't - so be it :)

______________________________________

Little anxious for my trip....sorta wishing to leave early tomorrow from work, which i just may have to? i dont feel right about going home, rushing to pack and rushing to bed...but then again, i guess it's my job to be at work....during work hours...i'll just have to put up with it...

very rushed way of going on trip, but then again, i could have packed more on weekend! LOL...i guess....but who does this, not I!

i will be taking a taxi to the airport at 7am on Thursday morning. flight is at 8:50am. I'm 10 min only from the airport! = awesome.

I may ask to leave at 3pm tomorrow...as i really don't want to rush like a freaking maniac before this trip....i will be asking later today to leave tomorrow at 3pm. It will be a MAJOR help so that i can pack & go to bed early before getting up extra early Thursday. I need to do this, i will feel better about the whole thing.

Your holiday will do you a world of good. As for your friend you are right things can only go up from here. Being positive always is the best road to take. Don't worry so much you will go grey before your time.....lol Enjoy J.

I wrote something about a high possibility of losing a major friendship i have had with what used to be my best friend of 12 years.  getting thru it. very sad.  I honestly would rather not have any "hate" for her. I don't. If my friends invite both her and i out, i will still go...my previous entry if you want to read / give any advice. it's pulling a bit at my heart and it is sad for me.

Anyways.

______________________________________________________________

9am late breakfast: 500.

snacking: strawberries 150 (entire quart) they were getting old, had them probably 2 weeks in back of my fridge.  :) still tasted great though.

650...trying to remember if i ate something else but no, i don't think so...

 Snack before gym 300 950

Big but balanced dinner: probably 700 tops.

1650 today, excellent.

2-day average: 1850

__________________________________________________________________

i have already done laundry and starting to think about my trip more. i don't need to go food shopping at all - got enough for these 3 days till i go on the trip i'd say..maybe some extra cooked veggies (but seasoned / sauced) might be nice though. i may get a minimal amount, yes. but that's it. and possibly some strong kombucha - for the morning before i go on this trip...but this is it. no major food shopping. some bananas could be nice also lol...so i guess a small food shopping today could be good...maybe on way home from gym, we'll see. plans are minimal this weekend on purpose. i wanted to relax before this trip since after it i'll be taking one day off & then back to work as scheduled for most of the winter. so just resting and relaxing as i had intended and it feels good...
