(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 126.0

around 2150. mostly balanced. more carbs before & after gym. healthy fats. caffeine. 2 diet sodas (no caffeine, just to energize me before gym bc I got out of work at 6, not 5....and needed the boost.)

I still want to balance out the 3,000 or whatever it was calorie day on last weekend.

30 min walk & a hardcore weights, back & abs routine at the gym.

Life is been very busy, despite it being holiday time. It has definitely been far from holiday time for me at work.

And so, once again, I am faced with my desire to take the time & freedom I do have, and use it specifically to get in really good shape compared to where I am at now.  Specifically it's my goal to look good on the beach the summer - I still have a bit of time.

I should be able to lose 5 lbs or so by Memorial Day weekend.  All I need to do is very, very simple - deduct just a few calories on whatever weeks I choose.

I may try the intermittent fasting approach again. But only a 16 hour fast perhaps...that means skipping breakfast, but not making up for those calories later. Even when my days are 1500 calories, I tend to lose weight. So, it's up to me....and, well, I have already decided that I'm going to make it happen :)

I wanna weigh like 120. I don't see a need to really be below that #. or upper teens, but that is it.

I am short, so it's fine. I am 5'1".

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

1550 before dinner.

dinner: vegetables in garlic sauce around 200, more veggies around 100, 1/2 chicken breast with skin (small) around 250?, chips around 200, and some fruit chews 40: 800 ouch, I messed up calculating, thought it was less oh well...some days getting off track is ok by me. and today is one of those days.

total 2350, a bit high, but, I need a break....I also went over on Saturday big time. will probably make up for it this coming weekend or later this week. sometimes you just need to give your body a break from the rules...

today I walked around 30-40 minutes at lunch and also walked again after work almost one hour.

so, probably 1.5 miles at lunch and another 2.5 miles after work. nice! also, I parked around 5 minutes at least away from work, so anther .5 miles round trip walk...therefore, at least 4.5 miles which is fabulous. and my legs have been feeling better.

Weight: 126.0

Last night at the mall around 7pm, I realized I'd forgotten my Victoria's secret purchase (got a bra for $12.50 instead of normal $32.50 and a free pair of underwear usually $10 - so I saved around $30 on my purchase...and I forgot it at a cash register upstairs. so, while going down the escalator I realized I didn't have it - and ran up the escalator only to get almost to the top and totally fall on the hard metal face down....it hurt and my knee is a bit sore, black and blue, and slightly swollen. I hope it all goes away on it's own. will not do any cardio this weekend. :( if I didn't injure my knee, i'd have definitely down some cardio SUNDAY. but, oh well, gotta help it get better. I do plan on upper body weights though, if i'm feeling alright.

Woke up at 7 and had chips and water 200 and went back to bed.

Woke up at 10 and also had some non GMO chips and water and gonna try going back to bed again. Hurt my knee last night so no exercise today. I fell hard on the metal landing of an escalator at the mall.

11am: lunch - chicken 200? and avocado 160, on wrap 60. total here: 420...and something sweet...greek yogurt w. peanut butter, stevia, little bit of pumpkin: around 250.

total cal: 1070, good :)

snack / lunch: grapefruit large 120, more of those chips which I really like! 60, protein bar (natural, vegan & higher fat/protein better type) 260 total here: 440, bit high overall today, since I have a FAMILY PASSOVER SEDER tonight.

going thru some tough, busy times right now. very stressed out that I haven't taken a real vacation in a very long time. oh well.

1510 calories so far, I guess I will try to stop at 2500 today...have the family dinner tonight, so it is what it is! and green tea.

It's been a rough ride & that's what I said it would be. I came to the conclusion a week ago that this is my life - and if I want to improve my health & lose weight & get in shape, family & friends will sometimes be on the backburner. I need to refocus again, regroup, and make it work for me. So, I'll be ok. 

probably somewhere between 2500-3000 cal. fine.

I did great today. I doubt more than 1600. Let's all shout hallelujah!!!!! I am finally getting a dent in my daily calories to help me lose weight. 1600 is pretty low for me, actually, compared with normal calories.

Exercise: half hour walk at lunch.

around 2250 even with that midnight snack...good!

mostly healthy, but, not in the evening / after the gym. loads of processed crap.  I will perhaps have to think of better ways to replenish after the gym...it's all good though.

i skipped the caffeine before my gym workout and it was actually a fantastic workout. I feel myself getting stronger, I am finally getting to feel a big spark and excitement that i am healthy and i can achieve a strong, lean body if I want to....I want it, for this summer :)  I will do what i can, I am definitely more eager now than ever. & then I want to look fabulous at my sister's wedding (within reason, gonna try though).

and i am going to get a good night's sleep tonight, i can feel it.

Good for you for skipping caffeine, that's something I have not had any success with in the morning!
