What I'm Planning on Eating...when I finally get hungry

So...I still have almost 600 calories to eat for the rest of the day.
5 Hershey's Special Dark Kisses - 100 calories
2 tbsp peanut butter - 170 calories
1/2 cup quick oats - 140 calories
3 oz salmon - 90 calories
If I can fit it, 1 packet of Scooby Doo Snacks - 90 calories
Total: 600 calories
That sounds like so much food. Ughhhh.

Edit: change those fruit snacks to a string cheese. 70 calories.
New total: 580 calories.

Still Counting

I grabbed lunch!
1 cup watermelon - about 50 calories
1 cup pineapple - 140 calories
1 cup honeydew - 61 calories
1 slice cheese pizza - about 250 calories
Lunch total: 401 calories

If I actually finish eating all of this, I'll have 569 calories left to eat for the day. Groan...I can't eat this much food!

Calorie Counting

So I totally decided that I'm going to attempt to eat at least 1500 calories for the day. That's how many calories I need to eat to weigh 120 pounds. I feel like this is going to be a challenge. So far, all I've eaten for the day is a Fuji apple, which is 130 calories according to Calorie Count. I'm going to eat a granola bar right now, which is 100 calories, and 7 cubes of colby jack cheese coming in at 110 calories. So far, my total for the day is going to be 340 calories. 1160 more calories to go!

Edit: Add a cup of skim milk to my total so far which is 130 calories. So I still have to eat 1030 more calories.
2nd Edit: 5 wheat Saltines - 60 calories. Finally under 1000!!! 970 more calories!

First Diet Break Day...Sort Of

So today I actually deviated from my diet a little bit but not to the point of oblivion. I still ate small portions, but today I had some rotisserie chicken. A friend bought a whole rotisserie chicken and fed a bunch of us in the dorm. And it was good. I just now came back from Starbucks where I proceeded to indulge in a Venti Passion Iced Tea Lemonade. And it was good. And only 190 calories. I loved every sip of it, and that might just be my new drink! I feel good. I totally didn't go over the calorie count because I didn't eat today due to the fact that I was braiding a friend's hair(and getting paid for it) and I was rushing to finish it so I could go to the gym.

Speaking of the gym, I totally did weights today with a friend and I felt good. My arms and pectoral muscles are definitely going to be aching when I wake up tomorrow morning! I didn't really do too much leg work, just a little inner and outer thighs. And I crammed in some ab work. Then I proceeded to partake of my favorite pasttime, eating. Just kidding! I played some basketball for a little while. Oh, almost forgot this part! The scale read 172.6 pounds today!! I feel good...

Review of Senna Tea

Ok, I'll edit this later and post a pic of the brand of Senna tea that I bought, but I'd honestly rather deal with magnesium citrate than this tea. I took it around 6:30 PM last night and I followed the instructions on the box to a T. It said that it would take between 6 to 12 hours to set in. It is almost 10 in the morning. It took almost 16 hours to set in. When I take something that says laxative on the box, I want it to work faster than that. Overall, I'd probably take this tea again, but I'd have to have something to do that would make me want to delay my bowel movements.
