so today was overall a good day. I didn't have much planned and didn't eat a tremendously high amount of calories. In total, 1830 calories today. I thought i'd be able to remain in the 1700s, but it didn't work out that way. I did some slow walking early on followed by going to the gym nearby to run just one mile! after that, i went to use the restroom; and didn't follow up with any more exercise like i had planned. I was trying to do either two miles or one mile plus elliptical.

i came home to use the bathroom; and my sister comes in while i'm using it so i cannot continue to go take a shower....telling me she's gonna wash her face...i don't know why she always waits till i get home to get a move on! can't she remember to do anything when i'm not around!? arg.

goodnight, all.

I think you're off to a great start! Doing some exercise is better than not doing any at all. That's my big problem - if I manage to talk myself out of doing whatever it is I had planned, I normally don't end up doing any at all.

I see your sister is up to her usual shenanigans! Can't you lock the bathroom door to keep her out? Or blockade it or something?!

Donkey on 05/06/2007:
Oh, hey, why didn't you go back into the gym to finish exercising? Not feeling good?

maria777 on 05/04/2007:
Hang in there! Thanks for your comment. You CAN do it!

Donkey on 05/05/2007:
I"m sorry things are so stressful. Do what you can to get through the stress; the diet will come later. I hope you are doing OK. Hugs to you!

haha, yes you will survive!

...things are NOT getting better. stress is high. liquid fast was not completed even on the first day: dumb idea, really!

today: 3200 calories.


this is getting crazy!

borntocry on 05/03/2007:
Get a hold of yourself, girl! Do as smiley suggested and wear some tight clothes. She gave me that advice once in the past and it worked wonders for me. If you can't control yourself mentally, you need some physical restraint, and there's nothing like a tight pair of jeans to rein you in, quite literally!

I really do hope you feel less stressed soon, though. You poor thing!

maria777 on 05/03/2007:
Hang in there...you'll get back on track! I've been reading your older entries...I've went through days of food binges in the past...but you'll get back on track!

lafemme_loca on 05/03/2007:
Hang in there... You can so get back to self-control and calm your stress. I know that self-sabotage is so easy to do (I practice every week)... instead of eating when emotional, try walking or typing or calling someone. Take care of yourself and know that you have been such a motivator to me !!! And you can get back into control. Take care !

well, i've had enough and have harmed my body so much that i figure why not harm it some more...i'm attempting a liquid fast for the rest of the work week. only liquids, beginning with water.

smiley2 on 05/01/2007:
Hey, do you have a lot of emotional stress at the moment? I found that it caused my binges in the past. Its like a vicious cycle and can become a habit so easily. I think you should start by getting rid of all the foods in your house that can trigger you for a binge. And put on some clothes that are too tight for you and just imagine how bad all these binges are for you! Do you have pets? Sometimes focusing your attention on them also helps. Good luck, thinking of ya! Welna

borntocry on 05/01/2007:
Oh my goodness, HoP! Hope you mean you'll only be having liquids at work - not the whole week?! I have done this once myself, though, and I didn't drop dead so hopefully you'll be all right!

Donkey on 05/01/2007:
Please do be careful with the liquid fast. I can understand wanting to give your digestive system a rest, but a liquid diet can really wreck havoc with your metabolism, slowing it way down.

WorkingIt2 on 05/01/2007:
Good luck with the liquid diet..I know I couldn't handle it so more power to you! I know how it feels to be just DONE with something. It does get better! Keep the faith! I'll check back in a month!

I don't think i can continue on this way...ha, let alone sleep this way. i am sick to my stomach! i realize i've said this a thousand times on DD!

Edit: no exercise, did work instead. 5000 calories today whoa!

LOL, oh crap. well, i did in fact engage in binge behavior. around 5005 calories to be exact. i ate everything in my house. cookies, ravioli, bread with peanut butter, yogurt, chocolate chip cookies, chips, chocolate, etc.

hi guys. happy monday.

today calories will be high. i've been "bingy" all day, starting with a 700 calorie breakfast. I had a good snack in the morning after that, a vegetable and an egg. Lunch was supposed to be just tofu, tomato, and carrots (my usual.) but, i followed it with 12 sugar-free girl scout brownie cookies that were in the teacher's room at work. that's an extra 390 calories. next, i stopped after work for a high-calorie protein bar, followed by a yogurt parfait from mcdonalds, followed by a snickers marathon bar, followed by two pieces of matza (like a big large cracker). so far, 2230 calories. I still plan on dinner and will not starve myself at all...even though its already 4pm and i'll go to bed by like 9:30 to 10:30.

i'll try to exercise some, so i don't feel as bad. another update later!

Donkey on 04/30/2007:
Yes, you should still have a good dinner and not starve. Even if your calories are a bit higher today (and I'm not saying that they are, I'm just saying IF), you're not engaging in the bingeing behavior, and to me, that's worth the trade off.

noslot on 04/30/2007:
Look at it this way. At least you didn't go fast food hopping dropping $20 bucks on various value/combo meals. You should feel good that your binge was confined to what most people would consider health food.

edit: i still have a terrible stomachache. I ate anyway,but now its worse i think. i am so bloated. calories: 1220.

calories will definitely be good today.

I had some jelly belly jelly beans, but sugar free. I should not have bought them because my stomach is now EXTREMELY bloated. I don't i've EVER felt this sort of feeling before. In the past, I've had reactions like a laxative effect when i've tried sugar free candy. this time, my stomach is actually totally protruded like someone blew it up like a balloon! it's kinda scary actually! I would like to have dinner, but my stomach actually really does hurt too much...feels majorly bloated and full!

I finally did some jogging and elliptical today! Exercise: 45 minutes!

have a good week everyone!

GG on 04/29/2007:
UH OH! That FAKE SUGAR does it to me ALL THE TIME! I can ONLY chew Orbit gum because since I CHEW SOOOO MUCH OF IT, my stomach is sort of ajusted to it, yet I DO HAVE horrible bloated occasions: especially AFTER DINNER. It is best to just drink a lot, even if it makes you even more bloated innitially. Once you keep going to the bathroom things will go down a bit. Try some soup for dinner, just something to drink with NO SALT...well then maybe soup is not such a good idea, unless you make it from scratch. Otherwise, eat some kelp noodles with tomato paste: I still eat kelp noodles but sadly, I only have one package left and I am leaving school in a week or so, so I cannot order more yet. I am trying to save this last package for when I really need em! haha. Good luck with your stomach! Drink some Camomile tea if it is not too hot....I am drinking tea right now and its about 80 degrees in my room so i Am sweating buckets! haha! I think I need some ice cold water: pronto!!!

weightlossyoyo on 04/29/2007:
I hope you feel better soon! Good work on the exercise!

my concert went well this evening.

1788 total calories today.

30 minutes exercise.


i have not had such a high average of calories that lasts over such a long time span as just recently. I am now calculating for 30 days. My calories per day average for 30 days is 1945. I've definitely gained a little weight and I am still working on bringing that total down. I will not start a new calculation back at day one until the average gets lower, like just under 1800.

tomorrow i have plans, which is very good. No yoga this weekend...some classes were cancelled due to a seminar.

Edit: I have just enough activities planned for today (Sunday). I actually ran out of time in the morning. I was going to clean the bathroom but didn't want to leave the house as a sweaty mess! So, I will do that later today. I also have to make flash cards and STUDY! I have an exam next week on Tuesday (not this Tuesday). The exam is my last written grad school exam! yay. I want to ace it!

Have a good day everyone. That's my plan, too!

I promise it will be a good calorie and exercise day!

Donkey on 04/29/2007:
I'm glad your concert went well. I hope your Sunday goes well, with no bingeing!

the interview today was changed to sometime next week, the date and time not decided.

exercise: none.

calories: were good up until after the dress rehearsal/recording session. we went out to eat to houlihan's for someone's bday. I ate my food, which i didn't realize was fried until after it came. then, i had like almost 1/2 of my friends' dish. then, i stopped on the way home a picked up a cookies and cream white chocolate bar and a banana nut loaf slice of cake. I felt my heart racing as I ate and it wasn't hunger. I was having total mental cravings and it was due to how i was feeling about myself, crappy. I didn't enjoy the get together at Houlihans. I'm not close what the people I went out with and they are younger, like 3-5 years younger. All undergrads, and i wish i didn't go.

total calories: 3500.

jon'smom on 04/28/2007:
Those mental cravings are the hardest. Hang in there. Tomorrow is a brand new day and you will make much better food choices. Hope the rest of your weekend goes smoothly!

borntocry on 04/28/2007:
Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear about your get-together. It sounds kind of like my trip last weekend with my husband and his basketball team. I felt kind of awkward and uncomfortable around his team and I guess I must have turned to food for solace, because I totally stuffed my face, to the point of physical discomfort (which rarely happens to me). I wonder what is the best attitude towards such events - to try to avoid them altogether, or figure out a way to deal with them so they don't affect us like this.

greengirl on 04/28/2007:
I sometimes feel like that at work, wondering why I'm out with people who I wouldnt make friends with normally in a social situation, but that's life!!!

exercise: 11 minutes. haha calories: 1655

today i ate healthy things...just too much at breakfast: 605 calories.

i am debating exercise. it won't be much as i should really take a nap before my long rehearsal! i also need to practice and warm up before it...and eat dinner, so exercise is the least of my worries.

i bought cookies from the vending machine today. probably one of the higher calorie things...280 to be exact. but, they were so good. oatmeal raisin. that's all i wanted. glad i did it, lol. but, interesting, my body right now is craving vegetables. however, i feel like i need something more substantial to make it thought the night. eh, maybe i'll just pick something up on the way home from rehearsal so i don't go to bed hungry. yeah, i think it will just be some veggies and protein for dinner.

calories will be a bit higher today because of breakfast and the cookie snack; but will still be a good amount of calories.

i'm rambling quite a bit now!

goodnight. good day.

borntocry on 04/26/2007:
Oh, I think it's good to splurge every once in a while on a higher-calorie option, especially if that's what you really want and it satisfies you. You know, our bodies do need fat as well as vitamins and protein.

Good luck with the long rehearsal!

GG on 04/26/2007:
Even if you dont feel like exercising you should always do it because you know you will feel AMAZING afterward!! (unless of course you are sick or something, haha). I never feel like working out 1st thing in the morning but the best feeling ever is getting off the treadmil/elliptical trainer after my 100 mintues and thinking YES I am done and feel great! It gives me so much energy and it would give you a lot too which would help you get through your LONG rehearsals!! You should try baking your own oatmeal cookies so you can control the ingredients, probably even more time consuming haha, but whenever you have a free time and want to unwind from all the stress cooking is known to be the best.

edit: 20 min exercise and 1510 calories. not too bad for today.

my interview went pretty well overall. It was another one of those fast, 15-20 minute screening interviews. I played two musical instruments and all and now I'm off to a late night rehearsal. Friday I'll be having another interview after school...and I probably will not take off work...not a full day, anyway.

calories so far: 1380. not bad. I hope i'm not hungry after rehearsal tonight! I'm pretty full right now!

thanks for all the good luck wishes!

greengirl on 04/25/2007:
I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you have a good result from your interviews. You work so hard, you deserve some good luck :o)

borntocry on 04/26/2007:
Hi HoP! Glad your interview went well!

Thanks for your comment. When I complain about my hips, I mean all the fat hanging around them, not the actual bones, haha! I have 39-inch "hips". If only I could move a couple of inches from my hips to my chest, I could achieve that ideal 36-24-36 ratio, but I guess it's never going to happen!

Well, good luck with your interview on Friday! Knock 'em dead!
