Days 5 thru 8

Posted September 16th, 2011 at 01:54 PM by desdemona
Friday 9/16/11

Weight: 220.6
Rise time: 8:45 a.m.
Bedtime: 11:30 p.m. (planned)
Exercise: scheduled for tomorrow a.m.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thoughts and Feelings: Good job in spite of disturbance in my routine.

Had a big exam this week and lost track, but apparently did well as I've lost 2.8 # since my last weigh in (2 weeks ago?)

Since I began trying to lose weight, I've reduced from 228 to 220.6, down 7.4 pounds. Only 2.6 to go to reach my first goal of a 10-pound reduction. Yay!

Thursday when I attended a conference. Food was provided so I didn't have a banana. However, the food was so awful that I only ate enuf to keep from fainting with hunger. : / So I'm sure my calorie count was very low.

Plus I only exercised on Monday (will again on Saturday), so the lack of muscle use may have reduced my weight a little? Not sure.

It's Friday, it's just turned cold, and it's been a month since I've had fries, so I treated myself to a combo today. Don't want to feel deprived, after all, and yesterday I WAS DEPRIVED! :D So, it's okay as long as I get back on the healthy track.

With the 2 bananas didn't feel quite as peckish as I did on Friday. Still, just before lunch felt VERY chilled (blood sugar low). After bar was sweating again. Weird metabolism.
A little tired today which I will blame on the full moon. I'll be glad to go to bed early.

Went a little overboard with the cheesy biscuits but then I was too full to finish my meal. I'll have leftovers tomorrow.
RE: Body Fat index, found my old paper from the Y. In May I was 48.1%. Yesterday (4 months later) I was down to 45.3%. I plan to do even better now that I'm getting into a new regimen.
In the future I can cut down on the butter/sour cream. Half of that would have been fine. Also, need to remember to ask for salad dressing on the side.

Saw trainer, Jason, at YMCA this morning. Learned how to do hand weights for shoulder physical therapy. Body Fat: 45. Will check it again later and see how much it improves.
Am learning how this blog works. Apparently I should wait and write when the day is done since revisions are discouraged. Drafts apparently can only be saved once? Still learning.
Did pretty well today, though I haven't gone to bed yet. Took a long nap so I guess that means I can stay up later. Haha. No later than midnight, tho.
Ate pizza mindfully. Was aware that I was 7/10 full and resisted temptation to get a fourth slice. Yay! Had a jello mousse desert since I skipped aft snack. Drank cold Perrier coz it's not good warm.

Power is back!!!

Posted September 10th, 2011 at 06:47 AM by bananashorts
Hey there! Well the hurricane did cause some damage (power outages and fallen trees) but everyone around me is okay. (Although I live in an area where we NEVER get any hurricanes or tornados so it was eye-opening.) And I basically got my Internet today!

As for the diet, I texted myself my meals and so far I've noticed I've been eating 1 banana in the morning, a veggie wrap for lunch (200 cals), fruit like strawberries and kiwi around 3pm, and mostly Indian dishes for dinner. I'd guess my dinners are around 300-400 but it gets a bit difficult to track homemade ethnic foods since recipes do vary.

Excercise has been mostly intervals (sprint for 20 seconds rest for 20 seconds,etc.), jogging, Hindu squats, crunches, and practising Indian classical dance. (I'm not sure how much each activity burns though.)
