Silver,
With all the running you do you need more food...the healthy kind, of course.

I need to add my evening dinner to today's list: a flour tortilla filled with a bit of egg, cheese, bacon bits, ham and tomato omelette and refried beans and smores for dessert. Yikes! Not good, not good.

You're absolutely right. I'm going to up my calories to about 2600 for a few days and maybe onward up closer to 3000 and see how it works out with training.

Don't want to slow the weight loss too much, but would like to have enough energy to continue exercising and enough food in me to prevent muscle catabolism.

today, i had:

3am: a tuna salad sammich on a hard roll with raw onions, baked lays potato chips, dill pickles, and a diet coke.

<<<sleep>>>

3pm: a bowl of manhattan clam chowder and a baguette from a local fireman's benefit picnic.

4pm: a cactus pear, some mini pretzels, and raw jalapenos and cherry tomatoes while i was feeding the birds. i think the birds like it when i share food with them. they definitely eat more, until their crops are bulging.

6pm: a broiled rosemary/evoo/balsamic marinated boneless chicken thigh and a chimmichurri marinated chicken eg. i'm getting sick of eating broiled chicken, no matter what the marinade. need to buy some pork or fish.

10pm: on my way out the door. gonna walk down 9th avenue, past dozens of restaurants to see what smells good. i'm thinking thai, maybe vietnamese. possibly indian.

Well, yesterday I didn't track my intake very well (read: not at all). I think I had a total of 4 cookies and 2 chocolate hedgehogs, 2 salmon steaks, about a cup of rice, and a few other goodies.

I enjoyed freedom from tracking, but felt unsure about when I last ate and a bit confused about how much I'd eaten, so I'm going back to tracking today.

A bowl of ceral for breakfast and for lunch.

If you eat a bowl of either Special K, shredded wheat, Weaties, Cheerios or Grape Nuts with 4 ounbces of skimmed or 1% milk for 2 weeks and just eat a normal dinner, you could lose up to 10 pounds!

I've been doing that just before I was diagnosed with borderline diabetes, and so far, I lost 10 pounds. Now my goal is to lose 70 more pounds and get back down to at least 200 pounds and hopefully get rid of the diabetes for good!!

Silver,
I bet you track by the ocean. I have an uncle who lives in Vancouver. Sigh! I'd love to trade places and track there instead. I ended up tracking at the park while watching the kids 50 feet away.

Today I ate rice pudding at 1:00 a.m. (yikes!)
2 cups Starbucks Brazilian fresh brewed coffee, cream and Equal
1 whole wheat toast with low-sugar strawberry jam
bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and skim milk
2 cups tea with honey
5 graham cracker sticks
one quesadilla-flour tortilla with cheese
10 oz. piņa colada smoothie with fresh pineapple and low fat yogurt
3 slices fresh pineapple
Italian BBQ chicken cooked in white wine
serving mashed potatoes
tiny serving cole slaw
Diet Mountain Dew
Later: rice pudding for dessert .... again
