    Yeah they are super easy I especially like the cucumbers, celery, carrots, that is more filling and at least is nutritious unlike the empty calories in the hot fudge sundae but boy oh boy was it yummy!!!!!! I wish I didn't like all things ice cream...….

    I think mini-fasting is a great idea. I may need to adopt that. If I can get my mind right, I can do it. Will be working on that for April and beyond.

    I think for me it might just take having some staple mini meals that I can have without thinking about it.


    That's EXACTLY what I do - I always have on hand: Romaine, celery, cucs, baby carrots, bone broth, and broc/cauliflower to steam, and perhaps some fruit...it's almost always some combination there of, and then I just adjust spices or pick what I'm in the mood for (ie if I'm lazy and don't feel like steaming stuff I just heat the broth and munch on the rest LOL)

    I hope your knee is healing nicely and I hope you have a loss tomorrow even with all the spinning you're doing o:)

    I feel like you should be ok because you've been in "spinning mode" for a little while now :) At least I hope so! Let us know if you water fast, and how it goes if you do <3

    I did manage the water fast yesterday until after the late baseball game and I had a few fries from the golden arches (McDS)…..still count it as a win...…will be weighing later.....stay tuned.....

    I do have a question in regards to the mini fasts. What is the recommended calorie limit for mini-fasting? I did 650 calories yesterday. Is there a recommended range or formula like half your daily calorie allotment?
  • volgirl1322volgirl1322 Posts: 1,332Member Member Posts: 1,332Member Member
    I don't have a definite answer but I would think it would be about 1/2 of your daily calories. @mistymeadows2005 may know for certain.

    I consider my mini-fasts to be defined by 500ish cals or less (otherwise I just think of it as a low cal OMAD day...but that's just mentally for me LOL) - REALLY the point of the mini-fasts for me is mentally have something to eat and to physically get all the nutrients I miss out on over the weekend...I ATTEMPT to make them low carb too to minimize the glycogen collection but if not, I don't really worry about it :)

    I was just thinking 650 calories was probably too much and was more low cal than mini fast. I think the 500 calories is more in the proper range. The modified ADF calorie standard is 500 calories.

    I am developing my new strategy and I just want to make sure I am setting things up right.

    I am putting March behind me and looking forward to great losses in the months to come.

    GOOD IDEA! Onward and upward (or in our case, DOWNWARD LOL)!!!

    Mini fasts are part of my regular schedule so if you want any input just holla' at me ;)

    Weigh in today;

    168 even.....so .5 for the week....pretty sucky for sure but I am moving on.....
    The spinning has been great for my strength in my knee and i can even start to tell that a couple of inches may have also come off so I am remembering that muscle weighs more than fat and that I will get there even slowly.....

    Not sure for my April goal in terms of a number. I would like to be aggressive and say 158 but more realistic would be 162 (6lbs)…….

    Looking forward to awesome weekend!!!

    Awesome April here we come!

    At least it's a loss, here's to a better April <3
  • mistymeadows2005mistymeadows2005 Posts: 2,921Member Member Posts: 2,921Member Member
    YAY FOR A LOSS! March is behind us, and on to April!

    Why don't you split the difference and go 160? :) 2 pounds a week is a LOT anyway! :)
  • mistymeadows2005mistymeadows2005 Posts: 2,921Member Member Posts: 2,921Member Member
    OH ALSO before I forget - I did the math and I only lost 4.8 pounds in March, so really 1 pound a week seems to be the new black :D
  • jadepearljadepearl Posts: 1,104Member Member Posts: 1,104Member Member
    Congrats on your loss👍 I wish I can loose 1 lb per week but it seems my body is just too stubborn. Let's loose more weight in April, we can do it.👍

    The weekend was super busy and food was on the top of the list:
    Friday night was a Greek spicy chicken plate (ate half) and then some red velvet B/J ice cream @mistymeadows2005 finally found it <3
    Saturday was a early baseball game, had some nachos/jalapenos at the field, thin crust supreme pizza, and salad for dinner and some angel food cake with berries.
    Last night was a dinner/meeting out, had pork tenderloin, green beans, mashed pot., and a piece of cherry lime cake

    For April --- I will continue with spinning 4-5 times per week as well as OMAD M-F and then 2MAD on Sat/Sun where I won't count cals. During my OMAD I need to do a better job of tracking cals. for the meals, as well as getting enough water throughout the day. I have been a slacker on both. I also need to be more mindful of the portion sizes as well. I just need to analyze everything and make sure to stay on track.

    Starting weight for the month was 168 even. I am hoping to be at 160 at the end of April which is aggressive but I can totally do it...…..

    <3 Amazing Awesome Analytical April to my OMAD Friends <3

    YASSSSSSSSSS wasn't it amazing?! SO high cal but worth it! LOL I'm now onto Halo Top simply because I can eat so much of it!!!

    I like the 160! 2 pounds a week IS aggressive but if you're diligent, you can do it! The spinning actually sounds kinda fun...wish I could exercise away my pain :disappointed: :cry:

    Sounds like the food and entertainment was there though :)
