still sick

in fact I am worse, so I will be going to see my doctor tomorrow. i stayed within calorie range today, but i didn't make completely healthy choices. I was hungry but had to force myself to eat because of my sore throat so I went for the junk food

Saturday, December 29, 2007


I don't want to be sick. In fact I was hoping it was just a cold. I really was, but the longer this nasty sore throat goes on the more i am thinking that it is more then that. OK so my sore throat started WED and it is only SAT AM, BUT its getting worse not better. I can not survive without some sort of pain reliever because I can not swallow because it hurts so bad. I have never had strep throat or anything like that and I am HOPING that it not what that is. I was looking in my mouth yesturday, well last night to see if it was swollen or anything, and obviously it was, and I also so a lot of white spot on the right side of my mouth in the very back and it goes all the way down to where i can not see . That is not good is it?? I mean if its a sort of infection then all I need is antibiotics, but that would require a trip to the doctors office. I have no insurence right now and I owe my doctor on past bills. :/. I really don't know what to do. EVen if i decided i can go to the doctor The first day I would be able to go is wed AM, so if it doesn't clear up I guess I will go wed morning. I just really want the pain to go away because I don't think its this healthy to be taking this much tylenol. I am taking 2 every 4 hours. I wait till the pain comes back but it usually takes about 4 hours. In the middle of the night it was taking 2 hours. grr i hope that doesn't mean its getting worse. I'll find out with time i guess. Someone please tell me the spots are normal for a cold..

I'll start my menu today and update it as the day goes on. Oh yeah I did stay ontrack yesturday. Lets see if I can keep up the good work!!

Chicken Noodle Soup w/ toast----270
soy chips---365
cough drops---20
propel 75
Fruit cup----200

Daily Menu

I am going to post it today. I don't usually. and the reason for that is I usually go so far off track that i lose track :p. Its only 7 right now but i won't be eating anything else today. Ia mw orking till 11 and as soon as I get home I am hitting my bed because I have to work at 8 am. I was sick today and ended up having 8 cough drops and yes I counted the calories in those.

Cough Drops...40
Large/med apple.100
Dried Pineapple.560
small apple.....60
pizza bites.....275

that is really good. Right on Target. Seems a little off though. I feel like i am forgetting something I am just not sure what. hmmmm maybe i will think of it later. I am so tired, and so sick of working 2 jobs. I wish I could get gaurenteed hours at one fo my jobs so I wouldn't have to work both. I am going to take a civil service exam in feb so maybe some job opportunities will open up then....I hope so

Plan for the new year

As a way to motivate myself I have been looking at weight loss websites like I once did at the beginning of my journey. I may be at my goal weight but there are a few things I would def like to touch up. I want to tone up and make healthier choices as a whole. One goal of mine is to recognize hunger, and stop binging, I know thats going to be the hardest. Last year I was veyr strict around the holidays cause i still had about 40 pounds to lose, but this year since i am at my original goal weight of 130 I believe that i will let myself eat what is ont he table without going out of control.

I want to set up a list of daily things i would like to accomplish as the new year starts.

1400 calories a day
weigh myself once every two weeks
Abdominal exercises
Cardio exercises ( I work two jobs, so just fitting it in will be difficult)

A few tips I have made for myself is to have the healthy choices available to myself, cause when i don't stock up or bring a snack along, thats when I usually get out of hand with my eating and start binging. I want to restrcit myself from cereal and crackers.

I just want to feel better pretty much. I feel so blah all the time, but i want to feel happier, and healthier. I finally have what I have always wanted, A boyfriend who i love, best friends who support me, a college degree, and a job i love, so I want to feel great too.

This working two jobs thing is getting old though. 75 hours a week is rough. I ams o tired. I have been working since 930 this morning and its 830pm now and I don't get off until 11. Then I have to come back in the morning (christmas day) and work 8-3... these next couple weeks will be busy because of the holidays but i hope to cut down to 50hours a week between the two jobs after that.

well i hope everyone has a great day with their families tomorrow

Do you ever feel like...

Do you ever feel like, I don't know just ugly?? Like you look in the mirror and you see yourself as...disfigured...compared to other people.?? I don't know if that makes sense... Let me try and explain, sometimes I look in the mirror and I wonder how people actually look at me. Its so weird. I know I have a boy friend, and I know I am not disfugured, so why do I feel like that.. grr, Its a bad way to feel. Today I was getting my hair touched up and I was surrounded by mirrors and i just kept thinking that everyone there was thinking... We can't help her here...

Other then that I am still have trouble staying on track. I have not gained anyweight but I want to lose some more and i just might not be ready yet, you know you have to be at that point where you are like "OK LETS DO THIS!!!!!"
well I hope everyone has a happy holiday!

In fact it was possibly one of the top ten worst days of my life. i was crying before graduation during graduation and all day afterwards. My boyfriend and I got into are first fight which was pretty bad. I got upset cause he left my graduation before I walked, and then didn't come to my house to meeet my family afterwards, things are ok but i don't like arguing with people

Busy Day

So pretty much I just need to keep track. The next couple days are going to be rough trying to track and stay on track. In fact I am at work now so this is difficult. I woke up late and went to the mall and i dunno. Lets see I have a new obsession with POP tarts so I know that those are horrible for you but I fiigure if I work them into my diet and cut back somewhere else it will be ok until I get over this craving...
Target Calories: 1400

Shrimp n Spinich Salad (applebees)..........546 (approximate)
Cookie.....................................100 (guess)
total so far........................... 1136
Chicken Nuggets (from housei work at)....656
misc snacks..............................200

Not bad and I am still hungry so hopefully one more meal before bed not over 300 calories... maybe?

my dad is coming up for my graduation tomorrow. I am excited.
to see him and to graduate

ph here is a funny story. Yesturday i got pulled over on my way home from work for not having my lights on...i swear i thought they were on, but i didn't have my license on me either, i thought i was screwed!! it was my old roommate Eric who just became a cop! hahahahaha ohh I was lucky, but i felt so stupid.

College Graduate

Ok I am kinda a college graduate now, and with the work load gone right now i am back to blogger. Sorry everyone I had to take a break on blogging because working two jobs ang going to school was very stressful and I actually had to cut A LOT out of my life. but hopefully i can get back to normal. I have maintained my weight but I still want to lose 10 pounds more and tone up. With school being out i am hoping to be able to exercise more, and finally use that ab lounge i bought. I am working on my last final right now but i think imight take a break and use my ab alounge and finish the test when I get home from work. and i think eerytime i feel unmotivated i am gonna watch biggest loser, because i can not watch that show and not work out. haha I took pictures of my stomach and i want to tone up before summer. I obviously will never have a flat tummy, ave too much extra skin, but i know i can reduce the flabbieness! I would also like to be a little stronger. I want to focus on my goals now because i feel like i finally can without having to work on school work. School work is the worst I always want to eat when studying!! I still have my binging problem, like todat i binged, but i am still only at 1600 calories. I think that is ok, not too bad. i shoot for 1400. Here is a recent pic of me.
