Good meals today! Have a great day.


supercheese on 08/29/2012:
your post the other day made me feel a little bit better. I've been slowly...SO SLOWLY losing weight and maintaining at the same time that it frustrates me that it doesnt happen faster, but its better to lose weight slow then fast and gain back. Theres no time goal for weightloss... thanks for the realization :)


legcramps on 08/29/2012:
Your breakfast shake sounds good! My Glutamine smoothies include: spinach (lots and lots of it, like two big handfuls), one banana, yogurt (plain non-fat), either orange juice or almond milk, frozen berries (another big handful), and some Glutamine protein powder. It's HUGE. Usually ends up being over two glasses of the stuff, so I drink one after my workout, and take the second one to work with me.

I hope you had a fabulous day!

long workday worked 8 till quarter to 7. tomorrow i start at 7am.

got to the gym at 8pm. left around 8:45pm.

would have liked to be in bed by 9pm to get sleep, but that is impossible right after the gym. plus, i'm enjoying this diet orange soda...

calories today were very, very good. i was eating small meals all day and planned everything very well, that's how i was able to do it!

total cal around 1750. cannot ask for anything better.

gym: 45 min treadmill. mostly walking.

...so excited to start at such a low weight in September. this is awesome. I cannot even wait to get into the 'teens! (Probably around mid September).  It's been such a LONG time...summer 2007 was the last time!  5 years ago...and never again! It was so much harder this time to lose the weight, it's taken a year to lose 10 lbs!...this is my second time at weightloss. the first time, i lost all 30 lbs in one year!  (and i kept the weight off for a long time - from the age of 20-25.) then, i got very depressed and also i was back in school, studying, eating to procrastinate studying, etc. wrong choices and change of lifestyle is what caused the weight gain the second time.

I have learned a LOT in these five years till now. Mostly, all foods are ok...if you like something, you shouldn't deny yourself. and that when you have a bad eating day, it's not a problem - it's a lifestyle change, not a quick fix...etc. this journey - the weightloss journey - was actually fun this time around. i don't even wanna lose weight fast! I like the progress and i'm enjoying the pace I'm losing it at. Nice and slow, steady, and I'll be able to maintain it if I can lose it slow enough for my body to adjust - get used to what it needs! this is GREAT.

Yesterday was a really, really nice day.  I even came home around 8pm to find my mom, dad, and sister having dinner so i ate with a lil bit and we all chilled for a little while. we don't do this often, so it was really nice.  I'm thankful for my family and my best friend...as well as my friends. :-)

Breakfast: fiber one (2 cups) and almond milk, protein bar. 500.

snack:

snack:

weird, hungry day...especially at dinner, i was ravenous.

2600 cal, 1000 cal for dinner that's why the higher number.

exercise: bootcamp in AM, followed by walking at the beach for like 2 hours this afternoon. I probably burned off all the calories i ate.

all is good!

If you need support or want to read a little about my struggles with binging, see previous entry.

Breakfast: fiber one and almond milk 300, bar 230. total 530, good.

Today I have a bootcamp program, specially planned, near the beach at the Hamptons (big area, but it's known as a popular vacation spot and living area for famous stars and celebrities) on Long Island if you've heard of that area (but 2 hours away not at a close beach) and I am both anticipating with excitement and nervous.  I get nervous before new activities with people that I don't know well.  It should be fun, I am just bringing a fruit to have before, some fruit for after. There should be a bbq, and I recently (past year or two) like to have food provided, like a "normal person" and not have to worry about packing my own...whats the fun in that!? :-)

Snack before bootcamp: peach 70

600.

good bootcamp workout, some walking (leisurely) in the afternoon, an overall fantastically fun, exciting day!!! so glad i went!

overall cal, even better than i could guess on a day where it is unplanned and i was anxious, it all worked out very nicely - 2000 cal. this is proof that an active, invigorating lifestyle is something totally meant for me!

V on 08/25/2012:
Oh I hear all about the "White" parties in the Hamptons :) That is awesome that you are getting a beach bootcamp today. I am sure it will be a blast..Oh RYC I add healthy starches to the mix from time to time ;) have a great weekend!

Weight: 122.0

breakfast: toast 80, shake: choc protein powder 100, strawberries 60, 1/2 avocado 160 yogurt 80 460.

good amount of walking after work.

total calories: around 2000....3am bar 200.  2200.

good.

....i was reviewing this past week, almost forgot about last weekend's binge 3700 cal on Saturday. Now I remember. Well, I feel that it's balanced out now if it calculate the average of the past 9 or so days. I wish i wasn't reminded of that binge...lol, not healthy to think about that. 

A long time ago, I would binge frequently, getting into a horrible habit of eating less in the subsequent days after and always trying to calculate a reasonable average calories per day for the week after binging. It was like punishment that I was giving myself, to try to average out a binge, fix it.

Fixing a binge is NOT POSSIBLE.  A binge is a mistake that affects you.  There is no ERASING it.  It affects a person both physically and mentally.  As of late, my binges actually would affect me PHYSICALLY MORE than mentally. My body does not deal well with a load of sugars/carbs that is way too much to process. I feel very sick usually the next day as well...and I am in a horrible mood too.

So, I'm trying, trying to get better. It's very hard & will always be very hard for me.

I had a little bout with insomnia last night...i had a little of an energy drink before my workout last night and that is why.  i thought it wouldn't affect me bc it wasn't that much, lol, but it did.  so, i didn't go to bed early.

anyways, i'm still craving fats and carbs. and i'm having more, especially fats.

breakfast: smoothie made with 1/2 an avocado 150, yogurt 80, protein shake 80, peach 80, lil milk 30. 420 (no ice no water). it's tasty, and VERY filling. lots of fiber in the shake mix, maybe some in the avocado, and fiber from the peach.

snack: small coffee and protein bar. 250

lunch: another half an avocado, some sauteed veggies, tofu, CHIPS i think, maybe a pita bread too.

dinner/snack: small plum, kombucha, another drink too maybe..250 (chips as well)

edit: got out of work earlier, 4:45, home around 5:45 and exercised! :-) got home earlier from that, ate a full dinner at 8pm and now relaxing :-) lovely night.

dinner: microwave meal 250, tons of toast (4 slices, but with fiber so healthier - craving carbs and energy) so, total: 550, good!

total cal today: 2000 - good, no complaints!  i will not starve myself or eat too low calorie bc it defeats the purpose and i binge.

exercise: ran around 5 miles, some leg work too! that is good.

 

Progress as of today: 13 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

thenewMLE on 08/23/2012:
Stock up on good carbs and good fats - that's your fuel!! We started eating multi grain pitas and tortillas and they are fine and a good source of fiber. And as you know avocado is tasty AND healthy. It's better to eat higher calorie and healthy and then exercise it off instead of lower calorie. congrats on your loss!!


supercheese on 08/23/2012:
I agree with MLE. Sometimes I forget to eat that good fat is SOOOO important. Id rather be full than starving myself. Have a good one!


nunnermack on 08/23/2012:
Shoot! I had the same bout of insomnia as well!! Is there a full moon???

LOL I love how you get lunch on the cheap by eating some of your boss', that is the least he can do for making you work such long hours..Does he bring food from home or order out? Either way, that is pretty cool that he shares :) have a good day HOP
