Weight: 140.0

despite an awesome weekend. i binged. not sure why. but i did. the end. calories i didn't even count after awhile. probably around 5,000 at least. not good.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

goal for today: 1900 cal.  the following menu is subject to change...

breakfast: really in the mood for cereal w. milk. and a sweet cereal, that is. will go to the store and look around when i buy the newspapers.  i think i will have 2 yogurts w. cereal mixed in....i ended up buying kozy shack ready grains. they came in a pack of 2. so i had both. crazy me. and 2 yogurts. too filling and too much. but too sweet to pass up....total: 540.

snack: fiber one bar 140

snack 2: another healthy bar, no fake stuff 240

total so far: 920...

lunch: edamame, bagel w. egg and bacon. oh yes. 800.

1720...

dinner: i have no idea.

exercise: bike 20 min, park 4.5 miles. fantastic. the weather is just beautiful. right now, even though i'd like to lose weight like the rest of the world, my focus is solely on improving my fitness while not gaining any more weight. it feels so good to be able to accomplish more and more fitness-wise. i'm so glad it's warm enough to enjoy biking. :)

 

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

WI_HashiHypo on 04/05/2009:
Good luck today! My boss told me about some sprouted bread he gets at a natural store. I'm going to try it and see how it makes me feel. Have a fantastic day and great day yesterday!


Donkey on 04/05/2009:
Donkey was here! Great job on the cardio!!!!


nimony on 04/05/2009:
Hey Horn, you're not alone when it comes to days when we eat way too much food. I did the same thing today. So, it's only one day, and that day is behind us now. Tomorrow is a new day, a day to reconfirm our goals, and get back on track. Congratulate yourself for all the good things you are doing, esp. all the exercising! And don't beat yourself up on too much food today. Accept it, put it behind you, and move on. Today, I'm speaking as much to me as I am to you because I did the same thing! We're in good company! :)


loveray on 04/06/2009:
i hope you had a good time despite the binge. sending love!

tomorrow's plan: 1900 calories....i SHOULD be able to do that!!!!! :l  i better! arg.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

final friday edit: 2320. showed some control instead of eating 2500 like i originally was going to stick to after already going to high. 2320 is better. i REALLY am starting to pick up with exercise. i'm feeling the energy of spring! i am still hungry a little bit though.... :( haha....caved. back to 2550. fine! it's what i was going to have anyway.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

breakfast: egg omelette on a roll. 250 i threw some out! i love it when i actually DO listen to my body. not often, it's a rareity....and usually only at breakfast. almost never at dinner...i usually have nowhere to go after and i like the full feeling. yeah, bad habit....

snack: FIBER ONE bar. it's my addiction right now. 150 (i realize i do better with these sugary bars during BUSY mornings, rather than mornings in class with downtime....bc they only satisfy me during busy times not when my mind is bored so i chose another snack an hour later....)

snack 2: soy chips in a HORRIBLE white cheddar flavor. NEVER AGAIN. 150

lunch: subway. not in the mood for green beans. i can tell already. it will be a sandwich and chips.  750 WAS WORTH IT.

snack: bad protein bar, followed by diet drinks galore and a bad for me but good tasting sugar free dink: 200

another snack bc i was not in the mood to go to the gym right away: 3 servings chips, apple: 550. ehh, worth it.

dinner: i think it will be mac and cheese of some sort and some kelp. around 450

total today: will be around 2500. but you know what, i want to keep that total. so i'm not changing my dinner to make this day a low cal day, 2500 it is, the end.

exercise: raining all day. at some point, i'll get myself to the gym.....ehhh, i should have went RIGHT after work and before the chips!

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

loveray on 04/03/2009:
awesome friday plan!!! hope you are able to relax and enjoy the weekend. xoxo


thinnside40 on 04/03/2009:
I love those fiber one bars.... They don't have near as much sugar (nor refined) as some other bars out there..........

As for Meg's sickness.... No X-rays, just the Dr. couldn't hear any breathing when listening to the right side, wheras the left she could...Meg was wheezy still too..... 2 Prednisone 20mg the first day, then 1 qd for 4 days will be added if she isn't any better tomorrow evening.... I HATE THOSE PILLS!!!!! Albuterol Q 4 hrs AND the Ceftin 250mg bid is the first protocol.....

Have a great weekend!


loveray on 04/04/2009:
morning! i hope you had a great night. i was thinking- let's chat on the phone this weekend!! i feel like we have been friends for over a year and i have never talked to you. i will send you my # on facebook and if you have some time this weekend, i would love a chat. xoxo

Weight: 140.0

930 cal throughout school...

snack: fiber one bar yum!, drink 165

large, good dinner: spinach w. lite dressing 30, microwave meal w. kelp 370, BANANA (was big and worth it!!!) 150. total: 550 or so. (probably more).

total today: 1645. NICE!!!! i'm VERY happy with this number!

exercise: abs, pushups, 60 minutes on elliptical at the gym.

i am VERY satisfied with my day today. i ALMOST stayed home bc of rain and didn't exercise bc of just not wanting to go/laziness. however, i'm sticking to this plan of exercise EVERY day. and it's working. meaning, i feel better about my fitness. i wake up too early already so i'd never exercise in the morning right now. so i just have to remember that it's a priority right after school - i go out either straight from school to walk at the park in my scrubs or change at home for the gym and soon biking! :)

nimony on 04/01/2009:
Very well done. You have every reason to be proud of yourself! You are making important lifestyle changes and it is serving you very well. Keep up the excellent work!


Umpqua on 04/01/2009:
You are doing great, and I am envious of your exercise. I hope to have some time and energy to do real exercise again soon. And great job with your food and calories. We all have our ups and downs with eating (for me it is so hard to stop unhealthy habits once I fall off the wagon) but you recognize your problem areas and move forward toward a healthy lifestyle. Good for you and keep it up!

Maria7 on 03/27/2009:
Soooo...you're actually drowning your sorrows in food....I've done it many times in the past. Thing is, it has the OPPOSITE effect of helping you feel better, HOP. Yeah, while you're eating it, and maybe for a while after, you're ANESTHETIZED...but then you have to DEAL WITH IT... deal with whatever you're upset about that you didn't deal with constructively...AND then you have to ADDITIONALLY DEAL with the weight gain, too...and not feeling too goog about giving in AGAIN.


Donkey on 03/27/2009:
Why are you not ready to get help for this? What is holding you back? (((hugs)))


WI_HashiHypo on 03/28/2009:
Hey HOP. Hope you are having a good day today. I found out I am hypothyroid with Hashimoto's disease. My energy levels being very poor and stress very high helped contribute to my overeating. And then not eating right helped hurt me further. I am hopefully on the road back and I know it will be long but I know that I have the answers I needed, but was afraid to get, in order to get back on track. I must say it is far better than not knowing. I hope you get your answers soon. I think you will be amazed at how much strength you will have when you have the answers so you can make a plan. Hang in there!

Wonderful job with your calories, and your menu is so healthy! I hope you have a great weekend :)


nimony on 03/26/2009:
I echo Umpqua's comments about the healthy menu, excep maybe the choc. covered raisins! :) Berries are so good for you and have so few calories. I LOVE the strawberries this time of year because it's a sure sign of spring.


nenak on 03/27/2009:
you have low cals with the yummy snacks well done


starfish on 03/27/2009:
I'm wondering if it would help if you would plan to put more protein in your diet? I am assuming you are vegeterian? but can you do more dairy and beans and things like that?


loveray on 03/27/2009:

was up alll night last night. so today was rough. but i got through it well in the end. i went to the park. my ankle hurt but i still walked 3 miles. i had to stay on the grass and not the concrete so that there was some more cushioning in my step!

calories during the day:

260 breakfast

370 snacks

750 lunch: subway sandwich and chips. i needed this to keep me sane!

snack: horrible choice: sugar free energy drink. made me sick during my walk to the point of being really shakey because i didn't have food first. will NOT do this again! 25

dinner: lots veggies/dressing 175 and microwavable eggplant rollettes 350 total: 525 good!

total: around 1930. good.

thinnside40 on 03/25/2009:
Ewwwwwwwy ~ I cannot drink those S.F. energy drinks either... Jittery,naseuated,listless,etc...

Looks like all is going well today with the # counts....Great Job!

Re: Fiber One bars ~ The berry/nut are really good, but my fav is the mocha... I'm not a mocha drinker, but those are GOOD!

Have a good evening.... I've got to get back to routine in EVERYTHING that deals with my goal reaching... Almost done with the "spring clean" and then I think I'll be better settled to "getter done" once and for all time....


nimony on 03/25/2009:
Great job on counting all the calories, even the Subway sandwich and chips. Nothing wrong with that for a choice once in awhile, esp. when you compensate with lower calorie foods during the day, which you did. And you got 3 miles of walking in. Great job!


nenak on 03/26/2009:
good day after a not so good night. keep up the good work!


legcramps on 03/26/2009:
Yeah, I can't handle energy drinks either. To be honest, I probably shouldn't even be drinking coffee - I get seriously jittery on caffiene! Have a good one today.
