5:30 pm - I'm goin hungry...

daddyz1i1defect
Well... Its been WAY too long since I've updated on how my "diet and excersize plan" has been going. Mostly because I'm failing miserably at it. I haven't been to the gym in like 2 weeks now and my eating habits are almost as bad as before I started this.
BOO me... :( I just need a kick in the ass to get going again.

I've been slacking on updating because my good eating habits went down the drain. I plan on re-starting the good eating habits soon enough though.

In the meantime, I came to weighing myself today and I was surprised. So, without further ado, my February stats:

current weight - 195 lbs
height - 5'1"
shirt size - XL
pants size - womens 18/20
lowest weight - 135 lbs
highest weight - 205 lbs
goal weight - 120-130 lbs
weight lost - 10 pounds

Here's to hoping I can actually follow through with this and not get discouraged again.

6:40 pm - Never give up..

daddyz1i1defect
Jenn, I am really sorry that I haven't been keeping my end of the bargain. I know its mostly my fault that you are starting to feel discouraged. I've been slacking big time on updates, but I've just been so caught up with my emotions lately that I never have the energy to write.
I'm going to do better tho with updating, I promise...
Today I started my juice diet. I'm starting to get really hungry, but I'm just gonna have to deal with it for another day. I think I can do it. I hope I can. I also went to the gym today for the first time in a few days. It was ok.. I havent been staying as long as I used to when I first started. I need to get better with that too. Again, I am really sorry about not supporting you more.
I totally believe in you and I know you can do it. I have to start believing in me too.
Keep up the good work... you'll be fine. *mwah*

Saturday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1 Eggo waffle w/ syrup
+Lunch+ Provolone cheese and mustard on toasted honey wheat
+Dinner+ Marinated grilled chicken w/ cheesy baked potato
+Snack+ Green Grapes

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ Bowl of Honey-nut Cheerios in milk
+Lunch+ 1 piece of marinated grilled chicken
+Dinner+ 2 slices of chicken and onion stuffed crust gold pizza from Pizza Hut
+Snack+ Nachos w/ sour cream and salsa, chips and onion dip, mozzarella sticks and a couple of glasses of Coke

I overdid it last night because of the SuperBowl, not that it matters, the Raiders got their asses kicked. They weren't even playing like it was the Super Bowl!

Anyways, I'm thinking of giving up because trying to be healthy and do this on my own isn't working out too well. Maybe I should delete this community too...

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 multi-grain bagel w/ American cheese melted on it, 1 Eggo waffle w/ syrup
+Lunch+ Bacon cheese burger w/ mayo, onions and ketchup
+Dinner+ Green beans w/ butter, a little bit of chicken, salad w/ garlic and cheese croutons and ranch dressing
+Snack+ Bowlful of Green Grapes

I'm doing terribly. I'm really rather tired of trying, but I guess there's some part of me that knows that I've come this far, so there's no point in turning back now. Tomorrow, I'm pigging out, after all, it's SuperBowl Sunday. Still can't exercise, I feel like a loser. I guess it's good news that I haven't gained any weight, but I also haven't lost anything either.

I guess it's good now that I crave drinking ice cold water over Coke. Except I'm drinking Coke tomorrow, so maybe I'll get addicted again..

Maybe I should just give up...

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter
+Snack+ 10 sesame seed crackers
+Lunch+ Tuna and mayo on honey wheat
+Snack+ Baby carrots and ranch dressing
+Dinner+ 3 Quesadillas w/ ground turkey (browned), onions, scallions, fajita sauce and mild salsa

Today's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter
+Lunch+ Tuna and mayo on honey wheat
+Snack+ Soft pretzel from the train station snack cart
+Dinner+ Breaded flounder with french cut green beans
+Snack+ Green grapes

I overate last night. I couldn't help it. What with being on hormonal birth control and the quesadillas being super-yummy, and Steve being too sick to eat them, I ate until all the ground turkey was gone. At least I know that, though I overate, I ate healthy stuff. Ground turkey instead of beef, salsa, no sour cream, no cheese. Although I know for sure that I'm going to pig out on Sunday, with permission, because the Raiders are going to the Super Bowl and Steve's happy because that's his team.

I woke up hungry this morning too, it's beginning to get aggravating because I'm not sure if I'm really hungry, or just the hormones, but I don't want to eat until I'm full and gain weight back. It's rather frustrating. I'm sure once I adjust, I'll be alright.

I'm craving bacon, and eating breakfast at Bickford's >_<

Love ya!

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel, plain
+Snack+ 10 sesame seed crackers
+Lunch+ Honey turkey, provolone and mustard on whole wheat
+Snack+ 3 pieces of celery w/ peanut butter
+Dinner+ "Kickin" Chicken Pasta w/ olive oil, 2 small potatos with butter

I was really hungry last night, so I ate a bit more than I probably should have. I'm getting really frustrated with not yet being able to exercise, in fact, I feel like I'm going backwards. I figure, as long as I keep up these eating habits, that I'm not completely failing, I just wish I could do something more.

I thought I had something else to say, but I totally just blanked out.

Did you read how peeved I am at the Firm?

They sent the workout I bought for you and that was suppoesd to be sent to you, to me. Morons. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to remedy this, I want you to get your tapes after all!

If you got any idea let me know. Love ya!

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ Eggo waffle w/ syrup
+Snack+ Microwave popcorn
+Lunch+ 2 Slices of Digiorno Four Cheese Pizza w/ Sprite
+Dinner+ Chicken with cooked baby carrots and Sprite
+Snack+ Hot cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream

I've been slacking a bit lately with eating well. I drank a good deal of Sprite yesterday, not to mention drinking hot cocoa again. I gotta just cut down.

I'm thinking of checking out the Bally's that's just right down the street from me. After all, they have a pool, and I'm sure the have yoga and pilates classes too. If I can just get past this issue about working out around other people. I'm too self-conscious.

Today, I'm going to try better about my eating. I just hope it works, or else I'm going to get sucked back into my bad habits and just give up. On the bright side, I haven't gained anymore weight, but I haven't lost it either. I really need to start exercising.

Hey! I haven't really updated recently because I joined a gym like 3 days ago and I've been going everyday. I went with Monique to Ballys, the gym that she goes to, and I just fell in love with it... plus the dude was kinda persistant with getting me to sign up. I got the fee down to a pretty resonable price, tho.
I'm also eating a lot better... I'm making improvements, big and small. Like when I get a salad, I won't get the extra side of dressing that I usually get... I drink water all the time (resulting in me peeing every 20 minutes).
I'm proud of myself. I can't wait to start losing weight. :)
I love you Jenn! And I miss you!

Today's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ Eggo waffle w/ syrup
+Lunch+ Honey turkey, provolone cheese and mustard on whole wheat
+Snack+ Baby carrots w/ ranch dressing and chocolate soy milk
+Dinner+ Flounder breaded w/ bread crumbs and parmesan cheese and sauteed onions and zuchinni squash

I tried flounder for the first time tonight and it was gooood. I like it much better than cod. I'm starting to like fish, which is good because fish has protein and I don't having to worry about biting into a big hunk of fat.

I have to get into a gym around here, so I can have access to a swimming pool, but all the fees are way too high. I'm going to start investing time on yoga and pilates, now I just need to find a decent yoga tape, or maybe even a class.

I hear that yoga is a progressive exercise that increases your strength, flexibility, and helps in losing weight and shaping the body. I hope that what I hear is right!

In other news, I'm wondering how you're doing over there in NJ. There haven't been any updates from you in a while. Get in touch!

Love ya,

Today's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter
+Lunch+ 3 pieces of chicken with honey mustard dressing
+Snack+ Luna Bar (cherries over chocolate)
+Dinner+ Chicken pan-fried in olive oil, soy sauce, scallions and oregano w/ gravy and grilled zucchini squash
+Snack+ Hot chocolate w/ marshmallows & whipped cream

I really gotta cut down my chocolate intake again, I noticed I've been ingesting a lot of 'fake' chocolate, but I still don't seem to be gaining weight, so that's good. That Luna Bar I had today was awesome. It's my new favorite one. I need to find a decent gym around here, one that at least has a swimming pool and yoga classes, but I can't seem to find any decent ones. If I weren't so damned determined to prove to myself that I have more willpower than I think I do, I'd just give up. Except I've come so far already, why turn back now at all.

Back to searching for some gyms.

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter
+Lunch+ Tuna with mayo on whole wheat
+Snack+ Green grapes
+Snack+ Popcorn from train station snack cart
+Dinner+ Salad w/bean sprouts and cooked egg whites and ranch dressing

Today's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1 piece of whole wheat toast with strawberry-rhubarb jam and cooked broccoli with butter
+Lunch+ Luna Bar (nutz over chocolate)
+Dinner+ Salad w/ Ranch dressing, Green beans, mashed potatos, and 2 chicken tenders with honey mustard
+Snack+ Non-fat chocolate frozen yogurt

I sorta botched up my eating habits today because of going to the doctor, which was aroun lunch, but I think I ate a good fill of food today. Speaking of the doctor, I got a lot of information about the type of exercise I should be doing and I also have an appointment set up with a nutritionist which is going to help out a lot. The doctor suggested that I do something like yoga and pilates, or maybe some swimming because of my back issues. Aerobics will only make things worse, so I think that the Firm workout is out of the question for the time being. I feel better that I talked about it because it helps to settle a lot of uneasiness in my mind.

So I feel lots better now about this weight loss thing. And the good news is that, according to the scale in the doctor's office, I weigh 196.5 pounds, which means that I lost 8 and a half pounds. So far so good.

I feel good about everything right now.

Today's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1/2 whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter
+Lunch+ Honey Turkey, American cheese and mustard on whole wheat
+Snack+ Peanut butter crackers
+Dinner+ Progresso 99% fat free minestrone soup and steamed zucchini and summer squash
+Snack+ 1 Cadbury Creme Egg

I was a little bit of a bad girl with the creme egg, but what can I say, one won't kill me. I'll prolly get super-hyper, but I doubt I'll put on all the weight I lost. I'm thinking of maybe joining a women-oriented gym around here, if the price is right, otherwise, I'll just stick to exercising at home.

I've noticed that my appetite has reduced immensely. Maybe it just different thinking on my part, but I haven't been ravenously hungry like I always was... at least I've felt this way for the past 3-4 days. And I've been eating a lot better. You read what I ate yest... Today I ate 2 pieces of toast with butter and jelly, half a grapefruit, and a polly-o string cheese and water for breakfast. For lunch I had 3 or 4 strips of london broil and a little bit of fresh apple juice. And finally for dinner I had a cup of potato vegetable soup, a peanut butter sandwich, a clementine tangerine, and lots of water.
I need your imput.. does what I'm eating sound healthy and acceptable?? LOL I dont know.

I bought a scale today and I'm really excited about it. This will let me see how I'm progressing once I start my diet and stuff. I know I said I was gonna start my juice diet today, but I was lazy and didn't buy the stuff. BOO me! Tomorrow, I promise!
So I weighed myself and I'm back down to 130. Theres hope yet! LOL...
I ate pretty well today. I tried just drinking water all day, but then I got kinda hungry, so I went to Wawa and got a cup of fresh cut up fruit, a bottled water, and a small ham and cheese hoagie. Not bad, right? Then for dinner I had a foot long turkey and cheese hoagie on a wheat roll with honey mustard dressing stuff, with a small bag of baked Lays potato chips and another bottled water.
Does that sound ok? Linda kept making comments about how huge my sandwich was and it made me feel really bad about myself.
Grrrr.. Sometimes she can really get on my nerves.

Yesterday's Food Intake
+Breakfast+ 1 Eggo waffle with syrup
+Lunch+ Peanut butter abd Strawberry-rhubarb jam on whole wheat
+Dinner+ Turkey burger with sauteed onions, lettuce, mayo and ketchup and "Italian-style" spinach.
+Snack+ Bowlful of green grapes

Last night Steve and I were relaxing and I have this habit of crawling and laying on top of him, despite the fact that I know I'm too heavy for this. Anyways, I did it last night and I just asked him if I felt lighter, to which he said I did. He also told me that my back doesn't look as if it curves as badly anymore and I do, in fact, look like I'm shrinking.

This makes me feel good, because I'm not only seeing the numbers on the scale, but I'm showing a difference in body size. So today is going to be attempt #2 at starting these Firm video tapes. I'll have to do it sooner or later, and it's better to do it sooner. So wish me luck, I'm going to rock these new habits.

Love ya!

I may have ate a lot today, but I neglected snacking. We went to Chili's to eat in honor of Natalia coming out to Boston to visit us. So that's all for now, I'm tired and don't really want to update, but I also don't want to forget.

I've been neglecting to write my daily food intake on the day that I eat...lol. I'm getting bad at keeping up to date. I almost forget to eat breakfast this morning! Since I'm home alone right now, I should probably try and get the hang of the Firm Cardio workout, but I have to clean this place really badly. I need to drag myself from being online too. I don't know why I feel so drained, I've had so much energy lately. Also, I know I said I wasn't going to weigh myself except for the beginning of every month, but I just had to see my progress, and it turns out that so far I've dropped approx. 10 pounds. Go me! This makes me proud and motivates me further. There's no stopping me now, so just wait until I start exercising.

Besides, it feels good to be free of all the ickiness that soda and chocolate made me feel because I ate it in excess.
