anyways... so many calories... i hate going out to eat. i always end up ordering the wrong thing and eating too much of it and blah. you know the drill. i feel like this happens to me way too often.
i went grocery shopping with my dad after, and it went okay. i get really stressed out in grocery stores, sometimes i panic and make an excuse to leave, sometimes i just shake a lot. all that happened today was the shaking, and it can be disguised as being cold, grocery stores are always freezing. i bought a couple low calorie things to have for lunch this week and i'm pretty optimistic about being able to keep my count under 700 every day.
for treats to drink i got hot chocolate mix (60 cals) and lite arizona arnold palmers (50 cals- it's half lemonade, half iced tea. it's a big thing where i live). i think i'll have either one of those every other day, if i want one. i usually just want diet soda or water though, but we'll see. for breakfast/lunch i'll have special k chocolate granola bar (90 cals). i don't ever really want a hot breakfast, for some reason breakfast grosses me out... so it's pretty easy to combine breakfast and lunch. for a snack, i'm going to eat either a fruit cup (100 cals) or a yogurt (100 cals). i also have these jello brand chocolate mousse cups (60 cals) which are to die for. i'll probably eat one of those every couple of days after dinner.
sooo basically, for a day when i don't drink anything but diet soda and water, my intake will be 190 calories before dinner, which is totally subject to whatever my mom wants to cook. like i said yesterday, i'll burn off 200 calories at least everyday and keep dinner under 500. so 690 without exercising! :)
oh and i'm 124! i weighed myself this morning. so i already have a head start! i still want to be 118 by homecoming though, if not less than that. if i lose one more pound then i'll officially have lost 10 pounds since i've had this blog (i started at 133)! thinking about it now, 10 pounds is a lot. i'm semi proud of myself lol but i still have more to lose. i want to turn that 10 pounds into 15.
ugh. i have lots of homework to do. yes, i'll be doing homework on a saturday afternoon. don't get too jealous now, only a few people can be as cool as me...
just kidding. it's going to suck. i have a huge exam in advanced placement us history on monday. yippee. so that means i'm going to online shop right now. haha yay for procrastinating. stay skinny lovelies. xox liz
