I got done too late so no breakfast. That means I was done after 9 am. I have lunch between 11am – 12pm. Lunch wasn't the best, but I didn't feel like having a ham sandwich for lunch. So I had a Noodle Bowl by Nissin. I had my shake at break, and I had the knock off Ensure after work. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> I drank over 10 cups of water <B...

I had no problems today with getting up. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had a Dew knock off. Not the best I know, but I really didn't want to make coffee. I also end up drinking more than one cup so it cost me more calories. I had a shake before work with 16.9 oz of tea. I had another shake for my break. Also at break I had a large package of Reese's peanut butter cups (3 cups). Lunch was ½ cup of Greek Yogurt. Dinner was grilled chicken with sauteed baby ...

I got up officially at 8 am. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had tea to wake up. I didn't have breakfast again. For lunch, I had two chicken sandwiches. I had a to have a big lunch cause of work. For my before work snack, I had my yogurt with fruit. Because I only had one shake I took trial mix with me for my work break. I also had a bag of Chex Mix.

I came in 141 lbs. Of course, that's over two weeks not just one, but still 10 lbs. <em>104</em> I didn't really change that much. It could also be cause of the fact I moved my scale to a new location to get it out of the way. It's been sitting there for awhile, about a week. <BR> <BR> <em>102</em> <em>39</em> Today well waking up wasn't that good. I was really tried. So I er slept in ...

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:49:35 EST Day 32 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5949432 <em>102</em> I went to sleep after posting my blog yesterday, which was around 5pm. I woke up at midnight and then went right back to sleep. I woke up a bit after 6 am, but I fell back asleep. I woke up at 7:01 am. I gave it to myself because I was so tired. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> For breakfast/ after workout, I had yogurt. For a snack, I had two of the cookies.

Even though I have no car, I still have to go in. I had to wake up my dad to have him take me. Quick question. Should I just give myself the I woke up at 7 am goal on Sundays, since I'm already up or not? Right now I'm not. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had two cups of coffee. I had some trail mix to be sure I ate something before going to work. I did remember to take my caffeine pills with me to work, but I didn't take any. I had a shake at my break...

For the most part I stayed within my limits. I did have a few days where I went over. Of course, I almost if never made it to fiber. I got all of my workouts in. Yes, I didn't loose any weight, but I'm sure that it's just because of my friend. I got up on time except for today. Sunday doesn't count. I made my bed everyday. I got all of my water in, sometimes more. So this week was fairly good. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>128</em> Now for toda... Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:07:37 EST Day 29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5947974 <em>102</em> I actually woke up at first at around 5 something am, but I made myself go back to sleep to get up at 7am. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had one cup of tea to help me wake up. For breakfast/after workout, it was Greek Yogurt with some thawed berries. I got one of those big things of Greek Yogurt, and I'm using a dry measuring cup to measure out ½ cup for breakfast. It turned out fairly well. Lunch was a chicken sandwich. I had trail mix as a before work snack. I made anothe... Fri, 19 Jun 2015 23:01:38 EST Day 28 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5947428 <em>102</em> I woke up a little before 7am. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Now for the lovely recount of what I had to drink and eat that has calories. I didn't have any tea to wake me up. I took a caffeine pill. I had Greek yogurt again for breakfast/after workout. Lunch today was a ham and Swiss sandwich with chips. I actually drank what was left of my first pitcher of Salted Caramel tea without any sugar. I made another pitcher, but this time I added some Agave Nectar to it. I used ¼...

I had another Greek Yogurt for breakfast/after workout. Lunch today was a ham and Swiss sandwich with chips. My snack today was two bananas (They finally ripened. They took forever.).

I needed some...

I tried it unsweetened. It wasn't good, at least to me. I added 2 tsp of sugar to the cup, and then could I taste it. Truth is it could had done with maybe a tsp more, but I didn't want to add it, but I did to the cup I had at lunch. After my workout, I had my breakfast of yogurt. Lunch was chicken and pasta with veggies. For a snack, I had some Trail mix. My dinner/br... Wed, 17 Jun 2015 00:05:55 EST Day 25 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5945772 <em>102</em> Woke up at 7 am. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I know it's bad, but no breakfast. The reason is that after I was done with my workout, I was going to eat fairly soon. So there was no real point. For lunch, I had a ham and Swiss sandwich with 1 oz of baked chips. I had trail mix and pineapple for snacks. For dinner, I had two chicken tacos. I then had a serving of Ginger snaps. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> I drank 106 oz of water. <BR> <BR> <em>311</em> I walked for 20 minutes...

I woke a bit before 10pm. So I've been up since then. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Once it hit midnight, I went and made some coffee. I had one cup once the pot was done. Then I waited a bit and had another. More than likely not the smartest thing, but I wanted to be sure I was wake. I had a Greek Yogurt before work. At work I had a shake and trail mix. I also had some peppermints. For lunch, I had a ham and Swiss sa...

They are listed below. <BR> <BR> <em>311</em> Do at least 30 minutes of cardio everyday. More than likely I'll do 60 minutes, six out of the seven days. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Stay within carbs, calories, sodium, protein, fat, and fiber as best as I can everyday. <BR> <BR> <em>52</em> Start making my bed again. I stopped late last week. Not too happy about it. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> Drink 10 cups or 80 oz of water everyday. <BR>...

You can guess why. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had a cup of coffee to help me stay awake. I had only one dose of fiber with my Greek Yogurt. I took my cranberry pill. I explain below. For a snack, I had Trail mix, the last of my first bag. Lunch was a ham and Swiss cheese sandwich, with veggies. I had 6oz of fresh pineapple with it. I also took my joint vitamins. For my after lunch snack, I had my new Trail mix. For dinner it was chicken fried ...

For lunch, it was homemade baked Chicken fingers. I had them with ketchup and mustard mixed with a little red pepper flake. It's a dipping sauce I've made countless times. It's really easy to make, and most of the time we have everything to make it in the house. I had some Pecan sandies as a treat. I took my vitamins with lunch. I had 7 small Ginger Snaps. I also h...

It was also weigh in day, but that's below. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> For breakfast/after workout, I had a Greek Yogurt. Lunch today was chicken sandwiches. Ihate having to eat so much for lunch on days I work, but I have to get the calories. Not getting enough is as bad as going over. I had two shakes today and the three doses of fiber powder. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> I drank 136.6 oz of water today. I had to have a bit extra cause I real...

I also took one caffeine pill. I was going shopping and I needed to wake up. I only took one. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I, er, skipped breakfast. I know not good, but I wasn't hungry. For lunch, I had a ham and cheese sandwich. I highly recommend the Fit & Active lunch meats at Aldi. They have less sodium than the Hillshire Farm one that I had gotten at Walmart (they're also cheaper). I had 1 oz of Tra...

I had my morning cup of tea. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Breakfast/after workout, I had another Greek yogurt. Lunch today was the last of my lower sodium ham in a sandwich with tomatoes, onions, and lettuce. Yes there was a little Mayo and mustard, but not a lot of either. I only had 1/6 of a Tbsp.

Mon, 8 Jun 2015 22:16:51 EST Day 17 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5941311 <em>102</em> I had to get up once again at 1 am. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had two cups of coffee and some trail mix before work. For break/breakfast, I had a shake with water(i mixed a does of fiber powder into it). I forgot to take my caffeine pills with me. So I had to survive on the two cups of coffee I had before I left home. Anyway, for lunch, I had another ham and cheese sandwich. I then had some ginger snaps(not the best I know). For dinner, I made my own cause I didn't wan... Sun, 7 Jun 2015 18:33:52 EST Day 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5940842 <em>102</em> I woke up at 7 am. I almost started working out, but then I remembered today was my rest day. I was actually upset, but I know I need the rest. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had a cup of tea to help wake me up. I have to watch the caffeine today because I have to go to bed so early tonight. I had a yogurt for breakfast with fiber powder mixed in. For lunch I had a ham sandwich with veggies.

So I lost two hours, but I didn't work today so it wasn't as bad as it could had been. I'm not that upset. My body apparently needed the extra sleep. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I ate a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch. I also had a Greek yogurt and a bit of trail mix. For dinner, it was what we were going to have last night. I had whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread. I did have 16 oz of ...

I had a cup of tea to help wake me up for my workout. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> I had another chewy protein bar for breakfast, also as my after workout food. For lunch, I had my last Lean Cuisine Chicken Back Ranch club Flat bread sandwich with my last packet of 100 calorie Goldfish. I had a Dew knock off with lunch. I haven't had one in a while.

I mixed up the bag to get a better mixture of dried fruit and nuts. For lunch, I had a shake and my vitamins. Dinner I made my own version, with what I had, of a recipe off of sparkrecipes.com (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det<BR>ail.asp?recipe=736959). It came out fairly well. I cut ...

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:39:57 EST Day 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5936505 I got up at 8:30 am today. I had a Dew, before my workout. I don't want to me sluggish. I'm scared I'll break something while I workout. I'm do it in my room after all. After my workout, I had some trail mix, for the protein. For lunch today, I had a Lean Cuisine Sandwich. I had one pack of Gold fish for a snack before work. At work, I had one of my shakes, and then I had the last one after my shower, when I got home. <BR> <BR> I found two videos that do a 2 mile walk (https://www.... Fri, 29 May 2015 22:48:40 EST Day 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5935961 Today was weight in day. I came in at 155 lb. I didn't loose anything, but at least I didn't gain anything. I'm blaming it on water weight from my friend's visit. Here's to hoping next week's weight in is better. <BR> <BR> I got up at 8 am, on my own. I had one Dew (It's a knock off, but that's the name brand), before my workout to make sure I was awake. I had a chicken sandwich for lunch. I had two shakes, and one thing of trail mix. <BR> <BR> I had 10 cups of water, and only one ...

I went to Walmart (the reason why I had to get up 30 minutes earlier than normal) and Aldi to do my shopping for the week. Got that done. I counted that as my workout as I was out for almost two hours. I got a few things high in protein to help make sure I get enough everyday. I know I need to work on the fiber, too, but I'll try to get Benefiber or the store brand next week. I did have a Dew to make sure I was awake. ... Wed, 27 May 2015 18:54:43 EST Before http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5935222 I decided to put fingers to keyboard and tell you all how things were before. <BR> <BR> The truth is I haven't really changed that much how I eat since rejoining the site. What I have changed is how much I eat. You know how now I have a shake for lunch if I'm off or I have lunch and then two shakes if I work. Well, what I used to do was have four chicken sandwiches in a day if I worked, and have two for lunch if I was home. I would cook two pieces of chicken at a time. <em>39</em> ...

I did my workout after getting up. <BR> <BR> For lunch, I made what we call Chicken and Pasta. It's basicly Chicken Primavera, but without the veggies. My brother doesn't like veggies, or at least the ones I have. I cooked some veggies separately and added them into mine once he had his plate. So since I had an actually lunch, that means I worked. I had some trail mix and Goldfish crackers for snacks. So I had a shake at work with some strawberries. I then... Tue, 26 May 2015 22:42:54 EST Day 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5934144 I woke up at 9 am today. I'm thinking I may slowly push it back, but my body will be my guide. <BR> <BR> I did have a pack of Trail Mix after I did my workout. It was also my breakfast. I know it sounds weird, but I'm not really that hungry in the morning. For lunch, it was a shake. I would do soup with a grilled cheese, but it's late spring almost summer. I really don't want soup at the moment. I had two empty water bottle filled with sweet tea (16.9 oz). I used a fast food tea... Mon, 25 May 2015 19:04:30 EST Day 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5933589 I woke up at 2:30 am for work. I didn't get much sleep, but I didn't have much choice in the matter. So I had some coffee before I went in. Two cups. I had a shake and some strawberries with half a chocolate bar during my breaks. I won't lie before I got off work I had three Dews. I got about 3-2 hours of sleep. I just couldn't get to sleep. Today I mostly drank my calories. I know it's not good, but when you have to go in on very little sleep you do what you have to do. So I went o... Sun, 24 May 2015 18:27:44 EST Offical Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5933127 I woke up about 8:30 am. I had a cup of coffee for 112 calories. I used Agave Nectar instead of sugar. That definitely brought it down. I will say that I had it before I worked out, but that was cause of getting up so early. I didn't say it yesterday, but I got a headache near the end of the night because I had only had one 16oz glass of tea. Lunch was a shake, because I was off. Dinner was Chicken with Veggie Fried Rice. It was homemade so I know what was in it exactly. I had to gu... Sat, 23 May 2015 18:13:20 EST I Have Offically Begun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5932778 Well, it was another day of me having to eat more to get enough calories. If it wasn't for the fact I want to go to bed not long after getting home from work, I would eat something when I get home. If I did eat I would have to wait at least two hours before I could lay down. That's why I drink the shakes. I only had one glass of tea all day. The rest was water. <BR> <BR> I woke up 9 am on purpose. I wanted to get up so I knew I had time to do my workout. For my workout I did the 3 m... Fri, 22 May 2015 23:06:32 EST The Last Day Before The Offical Start http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5932186 Well, today was my brother's birthday. I was full when it came time for the cake. So I didn't have any. I had one of my shakes for lunch cause I didn't know what would be for dinner. We ended up going to Cracker Barrel. I got a Chicken (it was grilled) BLT with fries. I did eat the Cole Slaw that came with it. I couldn't find any nutrition information. So I ended up using a different one in the tracker. So of course, I can't say if it's right or not. <BR> <BR> I took all of my suppl... Thu, 21 May 2015 20:10:26 EST Another Day Down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5931692 Well, I treated myself to some coffee. I don't drink coffee that much. It wasn't Starbucks that's for sure. Anyway, I had only one of my weight loss shakes today. I decided to have something after I got off work. I came in fairly well in everything today, except for fiber. <BR> <BR> I took all of my supplements and multi-vitamin. I take a cranberry pill, Omega 3 oil pills, and glucosamine and chondroitin pills. A few of them do add calories, which wasn't in yesterday's calorie count, ... Wed, 20 May 2015 23:30:06 EST How Did Day Two Go? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5931061 Today was defiantly different than yesterday. I had to actually eat more to reach at least the lowest recommended calorie limit. <BR> <BR> I got my 30 minutes of walking in before I went to work. I worked for a few hours. I was on my feet the entire time, of course. I didn't add that into the workout tracker cause I do a lot of things over the course of the night. Hopefully, the extra “workout” helped with yesterday's mistake. <BR> <BR> Work days seem to go a bit better than none... Tue, 19 May 2015 22:44:32 EST A Daily Recount http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930356 First day back, and I did bad with my calorie count. I'm not kicking myself too hard, but it was a wake up call. Kinda. I don't normally eat the cereal and biscuit. I wasn't even supposed to eat the cheese crackers (they aren't mine). Also, I didn't know what was going to be for dinner. I don't eat fast food that often. I can't even remember the last time I did. Maybe last month? I know I went over today, but things happen. <BR> <BR> Right now, there isn't much left. I'm not goin... Mon, 18 May 2015 18:57:55 EST Things Will Hopefully Be Better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930257 Unlike my first time here on the site, I'm in almost complete control. I'll cook all of my meals except for the few times I'm off and my brother cooks. I also do the grocery shopping. <BR> <BR> So I have so much more control than I did before. The only thing I don't have control over is my work schedule. I'll just have work around it. Mon, 18 May 2015 15:06:06 EST Layout Of Plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930113 My plan is rather simple. First, use the site here to record everything. I don't eat out that much, but I won't lie sometimes what I eat isn't the best. <BR> <BR> The second part of the plan is I'm going to do something for at least 30 mins. every day. I'm going to count working a bit, but it won't be the whole thing. I'm not sitting on my butt when I'm working. No I'm walking around for the hours I work. So I know I'm burning something. <BR> <BR> The hardest part of my plan will b... Mon, 18 May 2015 11:08:02 EST I'm back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5929959 I've been gone for so long. I weigh a bit more than 160 right now. I want to reach 130 by the end of the year. <BR> <BR> Mostly it's health, but it's also my poor knees. My knees will bug me at times. Mostly it when I work more than I normally, and the complain I pushed them too hard. <BR> <BR> I'm going to cut back on Tea and Dew. This time it will hopefully be better than the last really time. I buy the groceries and really cook most of my own meals. <BR> <BR> I still have hear... Mon, 18 May 2015 06:21:26 EST
