NOT feeling good about the day, but getting on with it...

Breakfast: protein shake 210

snack: slimfast shake 190

big, satisfying breakfast.  mostly driving around a lil bit too much today but the day is mine to spend basically as i please. no major commitments.

breakfast: high fiber hot cereal 150, with almond milk 30, smallish banana 120, butternut canned squash 1/2 cup 50, (this all had a lot stevia packets - 4 i think - to sweeten it) almonds 170, 2% greek yogurt after with cinnamon & chocolate stevia 150 = 670 & well worth the calories!

ate a little much at all meals & snacks, so overdid calories a hair, nothing i can do now.

2250 before pool...

will have food after as well....

pool: at least 1/2 hour. probably that'll be it. mostly paddleboard i think.

feeling very tired...almost like i wanna skip the pool and just do weights tonight???

ended up doing full weights routine, much better than having to go to the pool, for sure!

calories were a little over, but not by much thank god. total: 2380, ok.

OhioRaven on 05/04/2013:
Dandelions are good. The leaves in salad with spinach. And the flowers in my weekly soup. The flower stems are only a little bitter do I leave them out. I want to try kale too.

hey all. i got ready for work in about 15 minutes today...and looked it! LOL

anyways, all is good. i am more motivated and inspired once again to get to the gym and pool.  i have been notified from a letter by the NYPD that my process is STARTING! wahoooo. this is the year, for sure. i think i may be in the January academy after all!

so...glad i stopped home for dinner before heading to the gym. hoping they haven't towed my car lol! i parked in the 15 minute spot, but for probably more like a half hour. lol. once i get home, it's hard for me to leave ;-) to get back out to exercise.

good thing is, i had something healthier than another shake for dinner: instead, cooked turkey (not deli) on a thicker slice of bread with mustard and two yellow peppers dipped in dressing. overall, a nice light meal at around 350 calories. and we all know i like to eat....so probably a shake or something after working out, maybe lowfat frozen yogurt instead.

so far, 1850 healthy calories. i've had veggies since breakfast :-) all week this week by making shakes that include greens. i feel better about this, and will continue to try to eat more vegetables (really, i am trying to make sure i have greens everyday is what i mean for now. i think it'll improve my skin and healing process)

i will end the day at 2050-2100 cal. good.

maybe another update tonight...gotta change my address with the DMV later before bed....!

Puddles on 05/02/2013:
Good luck in the process for the NYPD. Happy to see you are back on track. Have a nice evening.


V on 05/02/2013:
YES!!! Finally some good news :) I am sure you will be NYPD soon :)

I GOT A LETTER IN THE MAIL FROM THE NYPD!!! WAHOO! THEY KNOW I EXIST...ON TO THE NEXT STAGE, FILLING OUT SOME PAPERWORK & GETTING IT IN! WAHOOOOOOOOOOO! MOVING ON, STILL HAVE AT LEAST 6MOS-1YR TILL I GET IN, BUT YES, YES, YES!!!!

TOTAL CALORIES AROUND 2250. EXERCISE: SWIMMING WITH PADDLEBOARD.

Wednesdays for the next month will be packed with action after work....I have physical therapy at 6/6:30-about 7.  then, dinner of course. then, driving to the pool to swim myself for about an hour followed by swim instruction at 9pm.  I am in the beginner class, which I don't mind - i do have some swimming experience though! - so there isn't a lot of exercise going on yet which is why i exercise beforehand to get cardio in, mostly with the kickboard for my legs.

breakfast: tasty shake! fat free greek yogurt 100, avocado 80, almond milk 20, little blueberries 20?, tons of spinach 50, lots - 4 packets of powder stevia: 270 - great...definitely not acidic in my mind - the spinach and stevia is very alkalizing to the body.  i am working on decreasing artificial/acids a little bit - especially for breakfast. and TEA with some stevia. ohh, a few almond earlier. 300 total.

snack: almonds 200

snack: source of life chocolate macadamia nut protein bar, tea 200

lunch: turkey, spinach, cooked carrots, chips?, light bagel 500

1200

snack: plum: 50

snack  2 big peppers, water, fiber one bar if i want it.

tried something different this AM for breakfast :-D green shake made with: tofu 100, almond milk 30, 1/2 scoop cherry protein powder 50, spinach 50, some stevia (the only sweetner that is not acidic) around 250 - good!  instead, when stevia is digested, it's highly alkaline...and this is what i'm looking to increase in my diet - so for now, i'm sticking with incuding it in my food.

...update at work, 11am, having a much better day. i love being physically active & swimming last night made me feel great in the AM!  I am REALLY gonna work on being proactive to lose a few pounds & eventually reach 120 lbs, which was my originally goal until i got derailed & then fully derailed by this injury. But I really have little excuses, as I live by the pool.  I do not like going everyday, but I will try for every other or at least 3days per week or so for the swimming/cardio!

healthy day for sure. lots of veggies, fruit, i just realized no meat at all today! wow a vegetarian day!...

2000 (maybe even a lil more) before the gym, good.

after weight lifting for a bit under an hour: i went next door for frozen yogurt lol. 250-300 good.

total: 2250-2300, good.

pretty fed up with myself and life. lack of walking & being able to be active has me down and depressed really.  I hope to start being active maybe even MID MONTH. can't take this anymore.

starting over again. I am going to be successful this week.

Breakfast smoothie: greek yogurt 2% 150, strawberries 50, some spinach 20, some almond milk 20, 1/4 avocado 80, 2 packets stevia. later i decided i wanted to eat 200 calories of almonds as well and had them after the smoothie. 520. good.

snack: i think a fiber one bar before work starts 130

snack: tea and protein bar 210

lunch: cooked spinach 20, 1/4 avocado 80, some babaganoush (eggplant dip without mayo) 50, turkey 150, potato whole wheat bread: 500 approx, good. and chips i needed them. 140 more

early dinner: tofu 50, 1/4 avocado 80, greens 20, chips 240: good. oh and lots of homemade tomato/pepper juice from my boss. 2.5 cups. around 120

1860, babaganoush 90?, 1950...and...i wanted them, almonds 170

snack after swimming if I want to: 130

2250, good. the plan is to do what i do when i do well - not think about starving myself. yup, i tried & failed these past two weeks trying to..eat too low? so, back to normal - get through each day, eat normally. i'll be OK :-p

total: 1910, better than if I hadn't planned these meals, sorta high, but i don't feel i can lower it.

it is quite impossible for me to eat low calories after a day & night of binging.

WHY AM I BEING SUCH A SCREW-UP!? LADIES WHAT IS MY DEAL. I DON'T KNOW MYSELF.  EVERY WEEKEND I SCREW MYSELF FURTHER, EVEN DURING THE WEEK. I CANNOT HELP BUT BINGE WHEN I AM HOME. I CAN'T EXERCISE LIKE I WANT TO. EVEN WALKING IS NOT POSSIBLE RIGHT NOW. YESTERDAY I DID DANCE AT A PARTY A LITTLE BIT, BUT REALLY I NEED TO LET MY LEGS HEAL. I AM UPSET.

I AM GAINING WEIGHT DO TO MY OWN POOR CHOICES. I DON'T WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE, BUT I AM HAVING MAJOR TROUBLES TURNING THIS ALL AROUND. I AM REALLY NERVOUS & DON'T WANT TO MAKE THESE POOR CHOICES, HAVE A BAD SUMMER, AND HATE HOW I LOOK. 

WHAT THE HE!! AM I DOING TO MYSELF, WHY CAN'T I STOP. I AM OUT OF CONTROL.

...i should really not be lazy & wash my bedding today...but also i just wanna fully relax, need to go to the supermarket, maybe not cook at all this week, and go to the pool, and of course physical therapy later in the AM. too many plans for a day off lol.

hey all. really out of it this am...considering i went to bed around 4am!

6:30am breakfast: fiber one and almond milk: 300, 3 tablespoons or so of the smart balance spread 300, piece of bread 80, more almond milk 40: 720

9:30 snack few strawberries 20, more almond milk 40::60

snack: 200

around 1000 so far, good.

late, big lunch: ummm, maybe as much as 1,100 or more - small binge.

2100, not good, it's only around 3pm!

ANOTHER DAY DOWN THE DRAIN. JUST EXHAUSTED. NOT IN THE MOOD FOR THE POOL. DON'T WANNA EXERCISE, WOULD WALK IF MY LEGS WERE BETTER. ATE A LOT.
