May 17 - Resolved

What's new? Weight is up. I am very displeased.

I've been walking more with DH & trying to eat salads at least once a day as my main meal. Clearly this isn't enough intervention or it is not filling me up as I want to eat at night again.

So this week I am going to focus on just 3 things.

I must exercise 30 min a day.
I cannot eat after 8 PM.
I cannot eat between meals.

Today - P starting
I exercised about 20 min this am.
I have exercise planned tonight too.
Breakfast (6 AM) - coffee, diet coke, 1 cup strawberries with some sugar sprinkled atop.
10 AM hungry - I had a Luna Bar.
12:30 PM: 1 banana, turkey breast, romaine salad, 1 T light dressing, 2 water, diet coke.

7/27-28/10

7/27
Bx: 1 luna bar (180 cal), 10 oz diet cola (caff free)
10:30 - 1 peach (66 calories)
12:00 - 1 svg moussaka (estimate 6 oz 300 calories), 20 oz diet coke
20 oz water thru day
Dinner: 15 oz diet coke, Wendy's 500 calories from website
Exercise: 30+ minute dog walk PM, 15 calories light lemonade mixed with water.
NO EVENING SNACK!!
About 1100 calorie day.

I was reading Shape on the train & I had a moment where the idea of eating clicked. I know how to eat to lose weight, I just need to learn to eat healthfully as a lifestyle.

Here's what I read:

Multiply your weight GOAL by 10 = minimum calories for the day
If you are active you can add another 3 caloreis per pound.
On exerise days, add half the calories you burn to alotted calorie intake to keep energy level up.

SO if I want to weight 130, I should stick to 1300 calories. I am only exercising moderately, so I don't think I need to add those back in right now.

Weigt today: #177.4

Bx: 8 oz diet cola (caff free), 1 luna protein bar (180 cal/ 12g protein)

7/28/10
Had a big meal out while catching up with a friend.

Well I figured as much so I did manage to not have an evening snacks when I got home. Also very tired and did not exercise.

Bx: 2 hard boiled eggs (140 cal), 1 sl carrot bread (150 cal per Mimi's)
Snack: soy milk steamer 16 oz (200 cal)
Lunch: 1 c blueberries (83 cal), WW english mufin sandwich (210 cal)

I've drank 40 oz of water so far today. Went walking for about 15 min. I've done 5 flights extra today.

7/28-7/29

7/28
Dinner: 1 manwich (84 cal + 70, 2nd manwich with just 1/2 bun (42 cal + 70). Fresh salsa and about 10 tortilla chips (150 cal). 8 oz lowfat choc milk (160 cal). = 576 cal

Drank at least another 20 oz of water in PM.

Definitely not the best dinner, but rushing home from grocery store and back out for haircut. Did manage 1+ mile dog walk and a decent pace. Since it was dark, I kept working out my arms too!

Good news: NO EVENING SNACKS! Even ran to Walgreen's and managed to stay out of the candy. Trying to look at it as empty calories.

7/30 Wt: 176.2 I'll take it.

AM: Stretched a good 5 minutes, At work took 4 extra flights this am.

Bx: 8 oz V8 (50), 1 HB egg (70), half of a large low fat muffin (220 per Mimis)
= 340 cal

Man, that 'low-fat' muffin was killer. I did enjoy it though and only ate half from my dinner the other night. Tossed the remaining half in the trash!

I'm planning to eat well this weekend & increase exercise as we have no major plans...

7/28 Lunch -BMR

Ran my BMR to update myself. It is 1539. I need to undercut this to lose weight by eating more healthfully and exercising.

It takes 3,500 calories to equal one pound of body weight. Generally, dieters dump an average of 1,000 calories per day in an effort to lose 2 pounds of body fat per week.


So if I'm trying to eat around 1300 cal a day, I need to work off 5,300 calories in exercise! SO, walking the dogs isn't enough. I need more intensity. Also, as I lose weight, I think my BMR might go down as well bc my base weight will be lower. In a way this is depressing, but I'm going to slog on here. It is a LIFESTYLE change.

Friday: start laundry, walk dogs, spin 30 min
Sat: walk/jog 2 mi - do some yoga/pilates
Sun: walk dogs 2 mi/ spin 30 min

Continue no eating after 8:30 PM.
