Snack: 2 c. chicken noodle soup 180 calories, 6 grams protein
Total: 1800 calories, 71 grams protien
I have to be the lamest person ever. 71 grams of protien? Not even nearly enough. I wish whey protien powder wasn't so damned expensive. Anyone want to make a donation? :) I'll have to start sucking down more eggs and tuna. Milk too, although I hate the taste of it.
I missed my workout today, which really bums me out. I had horrible, horrible stomach pains (again) and went to the ER. Blood tests, urine tests, and a shot of painkillers. They don't know what's wrong with me, of course. But I feel good from the drugs. No more pain. Just tired of all these myserious migraines and stomach pains.
But I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Just need to eat more protien, drink more water, and make sure I workout. Hope everyone else had a great day.

For that amount of calories you need around 120-150g of protein per day.
You are eating 5 meals a day which is good. Each meal should have 25-30g of protein, particularly your evening meals.
Check out my journal... I aim for at least 120g of protein per day and you might be able to get some ideas from there.

Glamour- what are your goals? To build muscle or lean out?
I can make a few reccomendations about the diet, but need to know what goal you are trying to accomplish. Welcome to the board!

Spent a couple hours in the clinic today. More tests. Blah. Their going to take my appendix out on Monday. This will be my 3rd surgery in less then a year. Hopefully, it will be the end of my stomach pain. The bad news. I can't lift weights for about a month afterwards. I can't lift or carry anything more then 10 pounds. That means I can't even saddle my own horse. Just when I get back into weights, this **** has to happen. I was so excited, so motivated, and now my progress will be stopped for what seems like forever...
Blah. I need to stop being so dramatic. Anyways, as for my goals....
I want to get strong. I want to get in shape, be fit, be capable. My ex boyfriend used to hit me, and I don't like the idea of being "weak". That's a big motivator for lifting weights and boxing. I want to get into martial arts, too, when I can afford lessons. My father is a black belt in Kung Fo, but he's also a drunk, and I never really see him...
Specifically, I want to build muscles right now. My body gets pretty lean quick when I get heavy into the weights, and running. Right now I'm only doing 3 days of running a week, but that will slowly go up to 6 days during fall/winter.
And I have a question. What do I decrease my calories to when I won't be working out or lifting this coming month? I know the week after my surgery I'll get to live on liquids. Good thing I like soup, huh?

Feels good to be back! A lot of stuff has happened. I've been treated for my eating disorder, have full doctors permission to start working out again, and I've joined the Army National Gaurds. I leave for bootcamp on June 7th. My goal is to get in the best shape possible. I really need to build upper body strength, because my push ups are weak!
My current stats:
Height: 5 feet 8 inches
Weight: 135 lbs
Current workout: Uh, I don't really have one right now. I'd like to do a total body 3 times a day. I seem to like that better then a split, don't know why. I am doing yoga and pilates about 3 or 4 times a week, but nothing for cardio or weights. Any suggestions?
I'm aiming for 1800 calories a day. That's the least amount I'm allowed to eat, according to my doctor. That's our trade off, I eat enough calories, he lets me workout.
And prom is in one week! So I'm really going to eat clean, and do lots of cardio this week, so I'm looking and feeling good in my dress.
Hope everyone is doing well.

Today feels good. My eating was kind of all over the place. Meal four was very late, around 9 after my workout. So I went too long between meal 3 and 4. But I still feel good. I had my mom take pictures of me front, back and side views in a bikini. I'll take some more 2 months down the road. I'm excited to see the progress. And when I come back from basic, it will be really interesting to see what my body looks like!
