i have vowed to myself never to throw up again.. and I am sticking to that promise... but unfortunately, i ate 420 calories MORE than I burned today.  BUMMER.  If I want to stick to my goal, I need to have a deficit of 995 calories tomorrow-- that way I will have had a total deficit of 7,000 in the 2nd half of September (2 lb loss).
If I burn about 1700 cals a day, I can go to the gym to a spin class and burn about 400 (probably more.. but I need to be conservative), and then I would need to eat 595 calories less than 1700... 1100.
Eats: 1100 calories
Burn 2100 calories ---> total deficit, 1000

Doable?  MUST DO!
So tomorrow I will eat: 
Breakfast: 1/2 cup egg white and 2 slices of turkey bacon (175)
Snack: String Cheese (80)
Lunch: Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables and Rice (270)
Snack: Carrots with 2 tbsp Hummus (230)
Dinner: Chicken Breast  and Green Beans (240)
TOTAL: 995

Yay for a plan!


  1. Your "Doable? MUST DO!" made me smile. It's not even a question of how difficult or easy it is, isn't it? It's just something we want, and so we just have to have it. And that means doing whatever it takes.

    Tomorrow's menu sounds healthy and delicious (well, except for the hummus part =p)!


  2. great job :D

    i like that plan! i'm working on getting a workout equipment into my room so i can burn everything i eat!! can't wait
