August Week 1 goals Log ALL daily (as @misspamyla said, honest tracking) Stay within macros Water intake Exercise - kickboxing x2 and HIIT x 2 No late evening…
  • You look great! Thank you for being an inspiration!
  • I am on day 5 and the only thing I miss so far is real cream in my coffee. Black coffee is nasty LOL I would love to be a part of these Whole 30 groups!
  • Sounds like great motivation! I'm in!
  • You look great! You were beatiful before but your excitement/confidence shines through in your after photo! Thank you for sharing your inspiring photos!
  • Check out this website for some good info on them... http://www.organizeyourselfskinny.com/2014/03/17/the-ultimate-mason-jar-salad-tutorial-and-recipe-round-up/ Here's her response to your question... Why do you use mason jars and not plastic containers? I have used both plastic and glass jars to store salads in and I…
  • Hi all! I was diagnosed 2 years ago by my GP. It's been a struggle to get him to understand that just because my levels are now on the high "normal" side that I still don't feel right. My weight has yo-yo'ed for the past year or so despite my efforts. I'm planning a visit to an endo next month. I'd love to hear any advice…
  • My last surgery (a few years ago), I was out for a week per doctors' orders. I had a friend who had one done a few months ago and she was only out for a few days. I think it depends on the doctor and if they end up doing anything additional. My knee surgeries always end up with a "cleaning out" of the scar tissue and such…
  • This is something I struggle with every day. My goal is 40g a day but I rarely meet it. I've been trying to find ways to up the fiber each day so I'm thankful for this thread! I will definitely start using some of these ideas. FYI - be careful on the Benefiber - it can cause serious stomach upset if you take more than one…
  • What an awesome mother who took the time to teach her child instead of shush him! Thank you for sharing!
  • Morning workouts I now have a protein shake on the drive to the gym (previously nothing). After my workout, I have oatmeal w/PB or egg/egg whites or protein bar. Evening workouts (after work) I have a protein shake about 30 minutes to an hour before leaving work. After workout, I head home, make dinner and then eat.…
  • As a slow runner myself I want to say thank you for sharing this article. It makes a lot of sense!
  • Breakfast burritos are a great way to use up leftovers. I call them trash burritos but they are SO good! Eggs, leftover meat from previous breakfasts/dinners (bacon, sausage, whatever you have leftover), canned diced potatoes with onion and peppers (or fresh, depending on your preference), salsa and a bit of shredded…
  • I also use EAS Lean 15. Just recently started using Core Nutritionals Core PRO. It has 25 g protein, 3g carbs, 2g fat and 130 calories for one scoop. It tastes really good too! It can be ordered on Amazon or Tiger Fitness (Amazon is cheaper with shipping). I buy it locally at a gym or GNC.
  • Bondibands rock! I must have an odd shaped head because most end up flinging off during a workout or like you, end up as a necklace. I've tried them all! Bondibands really do STAY IN PLACE! LOVE THEM! You can get them online and usually can be found at merch booth area at big races.
  • ^^This, especially the running part! Not always the friendly girl @ group classes but I love the camaraderie! I'm a super slooowww "runner" so I hate to slow others down and try to shy away from having anyone join me. I have run several 5Ks with friends and always tell them that they don't have to stay back with me. Some…
  • I'm sure it's not my worst but one that I remember as a weekend ritual (usually Saturday and Sunday mornings) was a run to Sonic in town. We live in the boonies so going to town for breakfast was a weekend "treat" and a great hangover cure HA HA! Bacon, egg and cheese toaster, large tots and Route 44 Diet DP for me (grew…
  • My family isn't big on leftovers so I will portion out dinner from the night before and have it for lunch. Most of the time more than one portion is leftover so I will freeze the extras. I grab one out each morning to have for lunch. It's been a great way to not waste food and allows me easy portion control. ETA: Forgot to…
  • Hiya! My diary is open and my cals are set to 1,500. Feel free to add me!
  • www.skinnytaste.com is probably by far my favorite! I can even get my "shy away from healthy foods" family to eat her recipes. Another good one is www.skinnymom.com. She puts out a monthly dinner calendar with recipes. It makes it pretty easy to plan out meals in advance with the calendar. www.pinchofyum.com is one I found…
  • Along the same lines as this... Make yourself log it before you eat the free food or search it before making the decision to eat it. That way you know how much it will "cost" you before it goes into your mouth. It may help to curb the mindless eating. You may not find the exact item but something close should be in the…
  • This right here!
  • That I have multiple half siblings who know I exist. As far as I knew, my half brother was the only one who knew about me as I had been around him many times when we were little kids. I never figured deadbeat sp**m donor (or as some people would call him, "dad") ever talked to the rest of his kids about me; although I have…
  • I highly recommend New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women. An awesome book full of information and lifting exercises. There is even a bit of info on doing it at home. I just started it at home and have had no issues. Now I will say that I have a weight bench with a bar and plate weights along with multiple dumbbells. I…
  • Something that I've been doing recently is taking leftovers from dinner and freezing them so I can just grab a container and go each morning. My family isn't big on leftovers plus it's easy clean up to put them in individual serving containers and throw them in the freezer. I use the freezer so that the leftovers last…
  • ^^^ this is actually really good!
  • Just from my experience, it does get easier to recover as you progress in the workouts. A day of rest in between can help. I applaud you for walking when you didn't feel up to it! I tend to gravitate towards boot camp style workouts because of the challenge and the variety so I say stick with it! Ttry it again and see what…
  • THIS ^^^^ Plus a few oh sh** or ah he** thrown in for good measure. Although as my trainer will say, nothing like an "F" bomb to let me know how much you love me!
