Plan:
Breakfast:
Ezkiel English muffin with low fat swiss
Lunch:
left over chicken and lamb kebab with Greek salad
Dinner (a crap shoot because I am working a fancy dinner/tribute to a famous author)
6 or 7 hors doeuvres
glass of wine
Fish
veg
salad
Snacks:
apple
sugar free chocolate (to help me avoid dessert; I'd rather have the hors douevres. They were yummy last year)

Have been planning meals but even when I go off, I have guidelines.And last night I ate shish kebab and salad rather than a gyro which saved calories. Woo hoo.
Will try to catch up with posts; busy week; class Tuesday, concert last night, banquet tonight, fancy dinner Friday, poker Sat, plus a work deadline. Yikes!

For yesterday:

1.) Under 1400 calories/day - M: 1179, T: 1511, W: no idea, but a lot
2.) Go to the gym x2 - T: Y
3.) Walk to car after work M-F (unless it's majorly raining or something) - M: Y, T: Y, W: Y
4.) 64 oz/day of water - M: Y, T: Y, W: N
5.) Start (and finish! Oh god...) ASTRO 550 proposal - M: started writing, but found a fundamental flaw in my idea and may have to go back to the drawing board, T: still floundering, although thought awfully hard about it, W: Reeeeaally need some inspiration

Calories were over and water was under yesterday, but it's alright. I had a really good time last night at dinner. Sadly, he left the cheesecake... I'm going to try to get my roommate to eat some.

I get a really bad reaction to paint, even the low VOC stuff. and have a massive urge to flee every time I'm around it.

Paint? Are you sure that was me?

(I am currently doing cardio for weight loss and Strength yoga 3 x a week)
Why wait? Throw in the weight training to HELP you lose the last 2 pounds.

1. Target <1600 calories/day.
no. / no 1700. / yes 1571. / close enough 1612.
2. Walk the park or big block 4x with Sara this week.
Yes! / no. / no. / no.
3. Take meds 2x/day.
forgot p.m. / forgot p.m. again. / yes. / I can't remember if I did or not.
4. Log everything.
yes. / yes. / yes. / yes.
5. Plan ahead this week a few healthier (or at least less bad) items to have next week during Thanksgiving.
working on it. / in progress. / done i think.
6. Start reading labels and learning more about cleaner food choices.
tried, but felt a little lost. / did some reading. / a little. /

I have such a hard time remembering my meds, and since I'm bipolar that is not a good thing for any aspect of my life. Need to get out of this! A couple years ago the state did a ton of cut backs and really slashed mental health care. That's when I lost my therapy. Bad thing. Yesterday I took steps to get a new therapist through my husband's work insurance, even though it will cost a lot...I need it! Hoping I find a good therapist quickly. Finding one you click with is really a challenge sometimes. Also hoping that getting back into therapy will help me keep my moods more even and things will become more consistent. Losing weight when you're feeling in a funk all the time is really hard.

Hope everyone has a great and successful day!

Lisa, maybe you could get a days of the week pill reminder box. I know I have forgotten to take evening meds a couple of times. I take the evening ones with supper so I put them beside my plate.

Good luck with finding a therapist. I agree very hard to find someone you click with.

I have been reading everyone's posts. Have been eating healthy--finally had more energy yesterday.
