I am so frustrated so I wanted to turn to the community for help. My work situation is nothing but stress for me now. Luckily it will all be over in a few months but I really need HELP in the meantime.
I want to lose 28 pounds. I weigh 171.2 and am 5'7". I want to be 143.
My job consumes so much of my week and weekend that I don't know where to begin or how to get organized. Can you guys help me with a few tips? Here's my schedule:
Monday: 7am-4pm work
Tuesday: 7am-8pm work
Wednesday: 7am-4pm work
Thursday: 7am-8pm work
Friday: 7am-4pm work
Saturday: off
Sunday: 3pm-11am work
Help!!! I need to get to the grocery store and get good food, pack lunch, eat breakfast, and figure out when to get the gym. I feel like I'm always running on fumes mentally and I turn to comforting food or junk to get me by. I want to be fabulous in about 4 months. I like working out but I'm just not getting there. I'm in a total fog.
Any tips or advice would be awesome.
Thank you so much!

holy crap what kind of a job do you have? Quit!
... Can't do that huh?

- M W F night 20 mins weights (M legs W back & bis F Chest & tris) & 30 mins eliptical or treadmill - go hard
- make healthy meals in advance on Saturday and freeze / store / refrigerate for the week take them to work & never eat out.

Breakfast - whole grain cereal with skim milk - that is fast & easy
Lunch - Chipotle Veggie Chili make it good and make lots for the week - done deal
Snacks - raisins, almonds, carrot sticks and bananas - those are fast, easy & portable
Dinner - Hamburger helper (just kidding) - Chicken breast w/ oilve oil & fave spices whole wheat pasta & steamed brocolli - pretty fast & easy
Snack - protein shake (so you don't waste your weight training)

Well seems like your busy, a few suggestions walk on your breaks at work and at lunch you should surely get some with those hours. I have 2 jobs so I basically have the same schedule except luckily I am off on Saturday and Sunday, I get my workouts in between 8 and 10 a night but luckily I have all the work out equipment in my basement. I shop on Saturdays and take the day off from working out. Cereal such as Kashi or Fiber one are good options for breakfast, snacks should be fruits and vegetables you like. I have lost 60 pounds in 7 months so these little things to help. Good luck with everything.

Thank you both for your helpful hints! I am still struggling but trying to get a good schedule of eating and exercising going. Groups seem to be super quiet lately, so I'm having more trouble getting my rear in gear lately. Gotta find some much-needed strength within.
Thanks again.

This is the best advice I can give you. Add Salba to your food. You can look it up on the Internet. It is a "superfood" that decreases your hunger cravings and gives you more energy without getting the jitters. It is really, really good for you. The only down-side is that it is a bit tricky finding ways to get it into your food without noticing that it's there (doesn't taste bad, just has a jelly-like texture when wet). However, you'll notice a definite help with appetite suppression right away. You only need to take 2 tbsp per day. That's it. Trust me, it will help you stay on track when stress and a busy work schedule play havoc with your plans. You can get it online, or at the Bulk Barn. Some Superstores carry it. It's not a pill, it's a seed, which also comes ground like a powder. Let me know how you make out. It's really helped me get closer to my goal. I'm only 6 pounds away now!

pp- Do you own stock in Salba, because this is the 3rd post I have read that is promoting Salba. Must really be good!
