Glitter I have to agree with Taylor. Also...Being enthuastic is great, but I'm little bit nervous and worried that you may be burnt down or something... Just make sure you are eating enough though...

With all that working you NEED to make sure you are eating enough. A lot more than you probably think you need and drinking water.

Yeah, 4 hours a day (even every other day) makes me nervous. Is that a habit with you?
I'd say 4 hours of exercise happens on occasion but it's not typically something that I do regularily.

I play D3 college volleyball and basketball, so my body is used to the activity. When the two seasons overlap I can be in the gym practicing 4+ hours a day. Usually though I try to avoid that much activity because it is just too much. But if there is an open gym for volleyball and basketball, I usually just do that on top of my regular routine. I would replace volleyball and basketball for my cardio for the day but I am interested in running 5 k's this summer and I want to stay on track on the c2k5 plan.

I'm also a very active person so something that someone could perceive as working out such as going for a walk, rollerblading, or swimming is second nature to me.

On a normal day I usually work out about 30-90 minutes.

As for eating enough, I do think I need to do a better job at that. I tend to overly restrict myself on a diet, and then binge later. This time I am planning on eating more, just healthier. Yesterday I made some allowances and ate more due to my increase in activity.

It's all about adjustment I guess.

Family gathering feasts... I believe they are the most challenging times to stay "on track." Anyone else here have Passover coming up this weekend?

I have a seder on Saturday ANY Sunday (basically 2 family feasts)...

So my plan is to stick with the grilled vegetables (150 cals), turkey (150 cals) and a piece of matzah (110 cals). It's going to be tough to avoid the appetizers and desserts, but I really don't want to fall off the wagon. The way I see it, if I just make a plan and follow it I should be ok. Hopefully. It's just hard because I don't know exactly what is being served, which makes planning kind of tricky. Especially when I am a calorie counter.

Not sure what to eat prior to the big meals...

I wanted to do a quick check in before bed. I'm exhaused. I didn't sleep well last night, I had the strangest problem last night. I was either dreaming or waking up every few hours with stomach pain. It was a stabbing pain. The problem is I don't knwo if I was dreaming about it or it was really happening (I know that probable sounds insane). So I didn't sleep so well to say the least. I got some studying done today which was good. I'm going on a trip for my intership tomorrow the only good thing is like 2.5 hours each way in the car will mean a lot of flash card time. Well i should get ready for bed.

Cookie - I got invited to my roommates families for seder, I declined because of finals but from what I've heard it is 48 hours of calories.

Glitter - I love that dress, very cute.

Lissa - How did shopping go?

Well I had a pretty good day today, I got a lot of studying done in the car trip to Grand Rapids. I sucked up to my prof some more which is good because well grades are due in two weeks. Also it was really slow there so I managed to get a lot of studying done inbetween clients.

Two NSV first I got mistaken for a 19 year old. I had a client that said I couldn't be a day of 19. Sometimes it is annoying to get mistaken in professional situtations for being so young but sometimes it's a nice confidence boost. Then on the way back from we stopped at a McDonalds so my prof could get coffee. I went in, used the bathroom and then didn't order anything. It's always a struggel to avoid getting things when you are in the fast food place but I resisted



Lissa - That is quite a problem to have. I am perfectly in the middle of peitet so that is pretty much what I wear. I do have problems because I buy suit pants on sale but they are much to long (I actually used two sided tap the other day to shorten a pair because I didn't have time to get it hemed). Oh I really need to find a good tailor.

I just wanted to check in with everyone, I don't know who is around this weekend. I've not been having a great day, stomach problems, acid reflux, and a head ache. Blah plus it is really kindof hot in my apartment and the building has not turned the air on.

Good news I've gotten a lot of studying done even with all that (which is my life right now).

Also another good thing, I wore this really cute babydoll top that I got at the start of last summer. It fit then but was a little tight. Now it is loose (if I had to get one now it would be a size smaller). And a pair of shorts. I was looking at the mirror that is in hallway (don't ask why there is a mirror in the hallway its just there) and I realize that I've gotten small some how. That when I meet new people they see me as small and not the big girl with the nice eyes or pretty face. That I have a shape to my body besides round. I've been kindof discouraged because I haven't done what I want to and haven't really lost that much recently and everytime I lose a few pounds I gain them back. But it made me feel good today.
