Posting for today and yesterday.

Yesterday
Exercise
Crunches: (100 reverse)
Push ups: 50

Food
Breakfast: Lime chicken, rice, baked beans
Lunch: Grilled cheese with turkey, tomato soup
Snack: Cake, cookies
Dinner: Pizza, Captain Morgan w/Coke

Three dozen cookies, an entire cake (no frosting), and a whole sheet pizza devoured by six girls. That was some Christmas party. (Luckily, I managed to exhibit restraint)

Today
Exercise
Walking: 3mph, 4 miles, 80 minutes
Crunches: (150 legs raised) (150 reverse)
Push ups: 150

Food
Lunch: Grilled cheese with turkey, baked beans, milk
Snack: Strawberry smoothie
Dinner: Rotisserie chicken, baked beans, green beans with potatoes
Snack: Chex Mix

Super tired after last night, but I still had to study. I've just got to hang in there until Wednesday, and then I've got a whole month away from campus.


@32spartan11
I'll give your suggestions a try once exams are over.

Exercise
Walking: 3mph, 4.5 miles, 90 minutes

Food
Breakfast: Turkey bacon and toast
Snack: HiC, shortbread cookies, pretzels
Lunch: 4 piece Chicken McNugget, small fry (and a couple extra)
Snack: Peanut butter and banana on wheat (one slice, less than 1tsp pb, 1/4 banana)
Dinner: Chuch roast with potatoes and onions
Snack: Turkey pepperoni

Had to throw the last snack in because I foolishly forgot to take my medicine with dinner.

Exam number two is tomorrow. On the plus side, thanks to a forecast of heavy snow (like a foot or something), the exam will distributed and submitted electronically, which means I don't have to leave my house.

On the other hand, it's an 8.5 hour exam (9am-4:30pm). I anticipate much pain. :/

Food: Breakfast consisted of a bagel with butter. Lunch was a Rueban and fries. And a Dr.Pepper to drink. Dinner was a half a sausage and few small slices of Scrapple (exactly what it sounds like, but delicious) .
Exercise: None.
I'm tired of being tired, but I still am too lazy to get off my rump and do a little walking. I know it's my fault, and I'm just tired... I blame my ADHD/ADD

Believe me, once you get moving, it wakes you right up. But I totally understand, it was really hard for me to roll out of bed when I first got started.

My solution was posting obnoxious sticky notes on my cell phone and DS right before bed. I use both of them as alarm clocks (which lets you know just how hard it is for me to wake up), so when I stumbled across the room to hit snooze, I'd first have to peel away (and acknowledge) the sticky notes.

They said stuff like "Oda doesn't care if you're tired, and neither do I" and "Attain the One Piece." Cheesy, obnoxious, and just enough to remind me that there is no way in heck I can have a successful One Piece cosplay if I don't make my goal weight.

After a few weeks, I didn't need the notes anymore. I get such a buzz post workout that I look forward to it when I wake up. (Though I do still hit the snooze quite a few times) And when it's time for my second workout of the day, I don't have to drag myself to the treadmill.

So, I guess what it comes down to is visualizing your goal. I looked in the mirror today, and surprise of surprises, I saw that I really do have abs. It'll take a lot of work for me to define them (ie: make the fat go away), but by golly-they're there.

Speed work eats my soul

Food:
Frosted mini-wheats w/ berries a cup of coffee. two cups of water
tomato soup and a quesadilla (sp?), a clementine, two cups of water
a mocha and two and a half cookies.
half a stuffed chicken breast, broccoli, two cups of water
More water and hopefully not more cookies as the night goes on.

Exercise:
5mins slow jogging, 6x800m at 8 minute mile pace with 400m walk breaks in between. 5 mins jogging and another 5 mins walking to cool down.

@slapthefatcat Are you in a position where you could walk to work? Or perhaps, if you drive you could park your car a few blocks away and walk from there.

12 push-ups,

Food
Breakfast & Lunch -- Barely anything. Lots of water, a ball of rice, chewed on a carrot.
Dinner -- A fist sized bowl of rice with stir-fried chicken with ginger and vinegar bean sauce. Lots of water.

I think I'm sick. I don't have an appetite. Everything I ate tasted weird, either too sweet/salty or has an ashy texture and taste. I didn't even finish my dinner.

Thank you. I'll try that. It's a great idea. I also gotta make plans for next semester going to the gym on campus, free for students. I'm planning on swimming every day if I get the chance.

No exercise today. I had to cut and carve some wood into shape for the gun to my ohatsu costume, which was much more work than it should have been (I was using a very dull pocket knife from my makeup bag)

Food:
frosted mini wheats w/ berries, two cups of coffee, grapes, two cups of water
a BBQ pork sandwich, grapes, two cups of water
two cookies
Another BBQ sandwich, salad, a glass of milk
a small bowl of popcorn, more water

Exercise
Walking: 3mph, 1.5 miles, 30 minutes
Stationary roundhouse kicks: (100 right leg) (100 left leg)
Crunches: 500 (250 legs vertical) (250 reverse)

Food
Breakfast: Spinach and turkey sausage omelet, toast, milk
Lunch: Chicken, green beans with potatoes
Snack: Chex Mix
Dinner: Grilled cheese with turkey and spinach, pickle, salsa

Honestly, what sadistic person came up with the idea of an eight hour exam? I was so drained that I collapsed practically the moment it was done and slept for two hours (after pre-exam anxiety kept me from getting more than three hours). Two down, one to go.

@Slapthefatcat: On campus gyms are awesome because they're completely free and you can workout right after class without worrying about transportation. I'll be frequenting mine again next semester and not a moment sooner. I don't mind driving in the snow, but once Lake Erie freezes over, I do not plan on leaving my house unless I absolutely have to. Anyway-good luck!
