45 days: day 17

Wow. I can’t believe I am 17 days in already. Day 3 counting calories. I think I’m getting used to it. I was sick most of the night tho. I think what I chose to eat last night was not sitting well with me. I also have a headache. Grrr…

I kept my cals under 1,200 today. So far under that when I tried to complete my food diary entry for today in My Fitness Pal, I was issued a warning that it was too low. It’s at 996 calories consumed plus I burned 233 cals at the gym. I think there is some fruit in the cabinet that I can eat to bump it up to the limit. I also have Oreos, but unfortunately, they are my enemy now.

I weighed myself and am currently at 181.6lbs. My night off is on Wednesday. I’m worried about it. I am fine controlling my eating while working, but being home all night may cause a problem. I hope not.


45 days: day 16

16th day of taking the supplements and the 2nd day of counting calories. Today my caloric intake was 1,135 and I burned 219 cals at the gym. I weighed myself and am at 182.0lbs.

I am doing ok fighting off the urge to eat when I’m not really hungry. I hope I can keep this up for the rest of the week. As long as there are no interruptions I will be fine. I just have to stay focused and on schedule.

45 days: day(s) 13 & 14

I’ve missed blogging for 2 entries. I kept forgetting. I have not missed any supplements, but I am becoming a little frustrated because I have not lost any weight. I am yo-yo-ing between 181lbs and 184lbs. I didn’t want to do it, but today I am going to start counting calories. Grrrr. 1,200 cals a day and then burn at least 200 at the gym.

45 days: day 12

Still going strong. Have not missed a day of taking the supplements. I have been late taking them on my nights off form work. That’s only because I usually sleep later on those nights, but I still take them.

I hit the gym tonight. Did 30 minutes on the treadmill and lifted some weights. While lifting weights I was also staring at myself in the mirror. The last time I did that I almost fell over laughing. I’m so awkward. Tonight, when I looked at myself I thought that I had an ok body… except for my horrible mid section. My tits are ok. Well, in the right bra. Something else I need to work on- finding a proper bra. I’ve always like my legs. They aren’t of the chicken variety or too fat. My arms are alright. My body isn’t a complete train wreck. I just gotta get rid of the muffin top gut.

No weighing myself tonight. I don’t want to weigh myself until I get the eating thing under control. I keep eating at odd times and cannot get a good read on my weight. I like to do it at the same time every day. I’ll try for tomorrow night.
