Thanks for the welcomes...

Last nights workout wasn't that bad, surprised by how much energy I actually had. I really figured I would fizzle out quickly. Did 30 min's on treadmill and some serious ab work.

No work out today, just got home from work at 8pm!!! But, ate well today

B- 3 eggbeaters egg whites
S- 3 turkey sausage links
L- 3oz tilapia 2 pickle spears
S- laughing cow wedge
D- 3oz lean hamburger with onion, low carb ketchup and FF mayo
I can also still eat a hardboiled egg a bit later tonight

Now, it's time to veg out on the couch and watch some tv, hope something goods on.

By the way, such a great quote. I love this, and I need to remember this everyday! Carbs seem so comforting after a long stressful day at work.

Hey kmchap....I wrote that quote for me to read every time I sign it...it's a reminder of something I wrote to Susie, Jo, and Macauley after I'd been making wrong choices. I don't want to slip UP the scales again!

S-microwaved turkey pepperoni
D-mediweightloss blueberry bar and cocoa almonds

Fit! The gym! Yay for you!
I can't ever rely on a gym buddy, they always let me down.
I now just try to meet the gym people I see there most often. That way I know they will be there. Schedules with other friends just never seemed to work out.

Anywho, my laptop has another problem that I can't afford to fix until the 15th (payday)...so you won't see much of me until I get that taken care of. I am actually using the gym pc .

So, yesterday......would you believe I ate ALL THIS!
B- 2eggs &bacon, tea, coffee
S-tiliapia filet, water
L-blt w/ lavish bread, water, crystal lite
S-atkins bar, wasabi almonds, and egg
D-corned beef roast, cauliflour mock taters,
LC cocoa and another atkins bar

1hr yoga
morning weights
then went back with hubby later in the evening and did full body motion circuit

=====
2 cups coffee so far
1 hour yoga

Hi Thin....Know what you mean about commitment from friends to exercise....doesn't stay consistent....hubby likes to go when he's playing racquetball with his friend and no other time, comes home drenched and stinky. I told him I'd love us to go together, oh well The gal I met at the gym says she's been coming 5 to 6 days a week regularly for 20 years....so I am sure she'll be in the classes she told me about! Hey, do you like those cauliflower mock taters? How do YOU fix them....think I could serve them for company Sunday (daughter and boyfriend coming, daughter would like them I think).

Exercise: walked about 2 miles today checking on my students in 4 ICUs and telemetry today, even wore a waist rubber sweat belt under my scrubs No one could tell but me...don't know if they work but I'll try it!

B-fat free cottage cheese and roma tomato
S-canadian bacon and laughing cow cheese wedge
L-carbmaster's yogurt
D-bites of beef w/mushroom and sesame chicken from chinese bar
S-blueberry pomegrante MWL protein bar
S later- cocoa w/ 1/2 scoop protein mix

B - egg
L - turkey, cheese stick and celery
S - almonds, cottage cheese,hamburger patty (decided this was probably diinner due to all the calories)
D - side salad
Ended the day with 670 calories and 17 carbs. Didn't work out today - have had a killer headache since I woke up, but because it was so nice yesterday, I did an extra workout then. I'm glad I did.

Weigh in tomorrow. I'm hoping to change my avatar to the 20 pounds lost!!

I'm in heaven right now, finally have a day off, and I'm having my first cup of coffee since starting this diet. I now this isn't the best way to look at the diet, but I'm replacing my veggies with the coffee just for today (there just about the same amount of calories and carbs). I just need to make sure I don't keep "replacing my veggies" with treats everyday....

FIT2010: I like a lot of cream in my coffee normally, so I got the coffeemate sugar free vanilla flavored creamer, it's 15cal/1carb per TBSP. I used 3 TBSP today. It's the creamer that my clinic suggested, but I probably shouldn't be using that much...?

Fit, thank you!! I saw that you did a 30 minute step aerobics class - will you be able to walk tomorrow?! I haven't done one of those in a while.

My weigh in days are always good eating days for me because I'm so motivated.
B - egg
L - roast beef, cheese stick, celery
S -"pizza" (cheese and turkey pepperoni)
D - chicken breast, salad

On target for calories and carbs and had a great workout today! It got up to 85 degrees here! I wasn't ready for that.

Have a great evening!

Hi Lea - It was the first time I'd done a step class in YEARS so I did it on the floor without the step, still did the lunges and squats too but able to walk today, yes! The thing that really hurts are the thigh abductor and adductor workout machines I did on the circuit! Feel like I need to stretch alot all the time so I don't get so sore, plus I took an Aleve! Hope you have a great day!

April 1

B-cottage cheese and roma tomato
L-Adkins Mocha Latte Shake (yum!)
S-cocoa almonds
D-chicken sausage broiled, then nuked w/sauerkraut

No exercise-I was low worked today from hospital and sat on couch doing research ALL day....yuk! I'm thankful I had appetite suppressants or I'd have been nervously chowing down the couch pillows!!

I'm ordering those hula and tahitian videos--just sounds relaxing too to see the scenary! Thanks for the tip! ~)(~ (That's slimmer me...doing the hula!!) Ha!

Debbie - you did the right thing - starting on the floor without the step. You can always build up, but you sure can't undo! I remember when I first starting working out with free weights and machines, I completely overdid it and the next day or maybe the third day, I literally could not get up and down stairs. It was crazy!!!

B - egg
L - turkey, cheese stick, celery
S - l/c yogurt, jello, almonds
D - cottage cheese, salad, turkey

Walked and biked

Happy April!!

Hello all,

This is my first post on this thread. I recently started working out, other than walking my baby(puppy) daily. I do Tahitian/Hula dvd's(had them since 04) 3x's a week, no shoes that is why i love doing it. I also go to poly practice with my girls on Saturday. Today I did something different by doing a Firm Transfirmation DVD(another one that i dusted off). I will do the four week cycle of Firm and put the Tahitian/Hula dvd's at rest for now and just do the Saturday practices with my girls(about 2-3hours long).

One of my very good friends invited me to her gym and I really didn't have a feel for it. Maybe it's just me, I felt as though the healthier people were staring at me. I only stayed for less than twenty minutes and just finished working out from home.

So far I had:

pre-workout 1/2 Power Crunch Bar 100cal 5carbs
post workout Iso 100 van shake w/1c. ch Almond Breeze & 1/2c. froz rasp
181cal 10.5carbs

Then I will be careful for the rest of the day. For lunch the plan is turkey slices with red fat swiss. Dinner will be 4oz of chicken and 1/2c. cauliflower.

Everyone have a wonderful Easter and today we must be careful with our food intake. We've all come this far and we must ask ourselves "Is this even worth putting into our bodies? How will this benefit me if I eat this?"

Struggling again today. It's like once a week, and usually right before weigh in, I want to eat all day long. I'm at about 800 - 850 calories today and about 24 carbs. All legal food - just too much of it. I'm frustrated! I have decided to wor been working out just about every day instead of instead of every other day. I started that about 10 days ago and only missed the one day when my head was about to blow off. I'm committed to that because I can burn some extra calories I might be eating.

B - egg
L - ham, cheese stick, peppers
S - left over steak, veggies, almonds
D - cheese and turkey pepperoni "pizza", cottage cheese, a couple ham slices, and more of those dang almonds.

35 minutes of walking/biking.

I want a better day tomorrow!!

Last week was rough. I kept craving pizza, everyday! I finally broke down on Sunday night and we ordered some, and I ate so much. Had my weigh in on Tuesday morning, 0lb. But, my fat was down 1 Lb and my water up 1 Lb, so technically I still lost a 1lb last week, right?

It's amazing how one night of eating bad (more like horrible) can screw everything up. Of course it also kicked me out of ketosis. I felt so guilty after eating that pizza. I've read so many of you guys threads about how its just not worth it when you cheat, and its true. I completely regret it! I really don't think I'll cheat like that again.

But, I've been back on track since Monday. Already feeling thin again (instead of bloated and greasy). And hopefully next week I'll have a GREAT weigh in result to share with you all.

So far today,

B- 3 servings Egg Beaters egg whites

And one side note, I have decided I will NOT eat anymore peanuts! I have to try to convince my boyfriend to stop buying them, neither one of us can stop eating them! At least he's not buying cashews, I would weigh 400lbs, those things are delicious.

When I was at my biggest (before medi, about 2yrs ago), I started working out and counting calories to lose weight. At first I was only doing cardio and I was losing weight. But, as soon as I introduced some light weight training into my routine, I saw an increase in my weight loss, and I was losing inches quicker too.

Basically, atleast 2 days a week I would do:
push ups, bicep curls, tricep kick backs, shoulder raises, squats, lunges, calf raises, if your at a gym use that inner/outer thigh press machine, and of course abs (I prefer using the balance ball). Any of these exercises that I would use weights with, I would use 5-10lb dumbbells.

It really is best to introduce light strength training into your exercise routine. You will lose inches, look more lean, its great for women's bone health. You should try it out for about 2 weeks, see how it affects your weight loss. I think you'll feel really good. Also, with the medi diet, it so low calorie that you are slightly at risk for losing muscle mass if you don't exercise with some strength training.

Hope this helps

Basically, atleast 2 days a week I would do:
push ups, bicep curls, tricep kick backs, shoulder raises, squats, lunges, calf raises, if your at a gym use that inner/outer thigh press machine, and of course abs (I prefer using the balance ball). Any of these exercises that I would use weights with, I would use 5-10lb dumbbells.

Thanks, Kelly. I've done strength training for years. Skipped it in the first two weeks (as of today) between not having energy and adjusting. After today's weigh in, I'll start it up again using lighter weights. Fingers crossed.
