Gina- I make a protein shake from yogurt, milk, splenda, ice and cocoa to help me get through the day when I'm at home. I don't think you can have cocoa during attack, but it is great after that.


Livin- I may try those 3 PP days in a row next week. Just to help me get through my period week. Wonder if it would help. glad to know it is helping yall!

Gina do you mean you ran 5 mile sin 12 minutes or a 12 minute mile? Holy crap marathon woman!! I just started running with the couch to 5K, I am on week 6 I am running 1.5 in 22 minutes, LOL I am slow but never ran in my life! I think Ducan can work for you, I drink whey you need it, your needs are different for marathon training, one of the runners on the other forum suggest Burn the Fat Build the Muscle diet, have you looked into that? You can do this, it does work go to the recipe thread, make the breads and muffins for pre workouts, all low fat and on the diet for your otabran allowance! You need carbs to run that hard!!!

No, no, no. I started running at 12:00 pm. I was reporting on how I had a good run on the pancake I ate about 9:00 am. I'm slow too, but I don't care (much).

I never heard of Burn the Fat Build the Muscle. I'll check into it.

I didn't realize there was a recipe thread. I was wondering if anyone had any good sauces using the FF dairy and spices. I am a dipper by nature. I'll check it out.

I like the dip blends and add them to FF mayo or yogurt, curry is really good, dill dip is another good one for fish,FF mayo is sort of weird but with spices it is good!!!! God I thought 12 minutes to run 5 miles, I have a long way to go, LOL I gotta build up to the 3 miles then work on speed a little it seems like I am running fast to me but I know I am not, LOL

I wish I could run five miles in 12 minutes. I don't think anyone can. A 5K time in the teens is great (and way beyond me).

I CAN run a 12 minute mile though.

Don't worry about speed. It will come after you build endurance. You do it by just picking a short run or an interval time and making a point to run it faster. The track is good for that. You can also just pick a distance (the next lightpole, bush, whatever), run it as fast as you can, recover, and then do it again. They call that fartleking. Runners have fun words.

Thanks for the tips on the dips.

I've never even tried a mudrun. It does sound like fun. Is it your first race? They are so much fun, you'll be hooked. Except for the few people that line up in front, nobody much cares how fast they run or where they place. They are just there to have a good time.

I admire you folks that keep running in the heat. I live on the coast and it rarely gets much above 70 here.

The sites runningahead.com and mapmyrun.com are good for measuring distances around neighborhoods. The track near me is that nice squooshy surface, but kind of boring.

Thanks for the link.

You can always do run/walk intervals.

That is actually how I am training now because for the first time in my 44 years (39 of them spent in a horrible climate), I have been diagnosed with asthma. I even got myself an inhaler. They are running tests to see what the cause is, but one doc suspects I have a mild case of Valley Fever. I feel fine to walk or do something not too strenuous, but as soon as I start running, I am gasping for air. The inhaler has helped some and I have to keep training, so I set my watch and run for two minutes and then walk for two. Kinda sucks after running for so long, but it works and I can still get out there.

I woke up to more good news this morning. Another 1 lb down to 183.2! Three pounds in three days! I wasn't hoping for too much because I caved to some dark chocolate last night. It was more of a habit than something I genuinely thought through. After a couple of pieces, I came to my senses and mixed up some very lemony yogurt and then went out to plant some flowers on the deck.

I think I am through with my LF and regular dairy stuff, so today I actually start FF. I am looking forward to the oat pancake and am going out for a run later.

Have a great day everyone!

I, too, had a happy moment this morning.

For the past year, I purposefully did not weigh myself, mostly because (if you've done Atkins, you'll know what I'm talking about) I . could . not . eat . another . pork . rind. So then I had a really unhappy moment in the middle of a wintry, rainy day, when I could not button my raincoat.

Fast forward to this morning, when I saw the raincoat on a hanger and decided to try it on. Whew. It buttoned easily.

I'm ready to throw my scale out and stop using it. I know I shouldn't weigh every day, but I've been addicted. Cause I tend to just start eating and eating if I have no idea what I weigh. But I'm beginning to think that darn thing is broke. For three days it has been telling me 212.2. I don't think I've ever had it say the same thing that many days in a row. There's always fluctuation up or down. Sigh... But I know it isn't because at night before bed it doesn't say that. Maybe that means I'll have a whoosh soon!!! I hope so cause I really wanted to be below 210 for next week's weigh in!!

Nothing much planned today. Bookwork and housework. It never ends. Maybe take the kids somewhere this afternoon.

Have a fantastic day!

Gina what part of the US are you in? Never heard of Valley Fever, sounds bad, I cant imagine running with asthma.

LC- wow seeing that coat button is success!!!

Lenise- I know it is so darn frustrating, it seems like people struggle with the on going weight loss attack seems to really work but the addition of veg seems to mess people up

LLC, congratulations on the raincoat!

Lenise, that is weird about the scale, but it happens to me sometimes. I am someone who has to weigh everyday too. I have this strange scale-to-dryer connection at my house. If I don't use my scale, the dryer starts shrinking my clothes. I don't know what else it can be.

Bejewel, I am in CA. I grew up in the Central Valley (the home of Valley Fever), which is hot and dry and shaped like a bowl with pretty bad air quality. I am a teacher and at least 30-40% of my students every year were on inhalers there. A few years ago I moved to the coast, but my extended family is still there so we visit regularly. You can get Valley Fever in other places too- it is airborne and needs a hot, dry climate.

I dropped my son off this morning at summer school and went to the grocery store. I stocked up on yogurt, fish and chicken. I even bought skim milk. I am usually so anti-low-fat-stuff that this feels really weird. I had to explain to my kids what I was doing so they wouldn't think I'd gone off the deep end. I am a firm believer that a paleo-style of eating is best, but I just can't lose anymore that way. I can maintain and feel great, but no more losses.

Gina is that like Modesto, Paso Robles, area? I lived in San Diego from 1990-1996 I loved Cali I so wish I as still there!!!!!

Yeah switching these diets is like OMG, FF stuff is yucky to begin with, like the mayo I was so adverse but if you liven it up its not bad! But it is such a switch all that fat to so low fat, and now this trainer told me to eat 150 grams of quality carbs? OMG I cant wrap my head around that, LOL I said to Tony I like Atkins, I know what I can eat, switching everything up is so exhausting!

I lived pretty close to Fresno. That is an hour or so south of Modesto.

I live near Santa Cruz now (hour plus a bit south of San Francisco on the coast). Mmmmuuuuuccchhh nicer weather.

Home again... home again..... jiggedy jig!! Not feeling like I gained but tomorrow will tell. I'm a daily weigher myself Had to go up and down a long sloped grassy area to the beach and back and then walk all around the big Inn so that to me is excerising I didn't eat too many things off plan and if I did it was nuts, cheese, a lowcarb wrap and lower carb fruits so I am praying things will be ok. No s'mores or sweet treats and lots of walking and swimming (if you can call floating around and dog paddling swimming)

Gina. I had the same mind set when I went to buying lowfat foods. If you PM me you email addy I will be happy to forward the Dukan book that Dollkey so kindly emailed to me

spyder I would never pay money for coaching but might be helpful for others. I have not heard any good reviews as Gina said.

Lenise for a woosh. I know it is discouraging when the scale stands still. Just hang in there

Amber OMG girl your avatar is awesome. You have done such a great job I just keep going back and looking at it. You ROCK!!!!!!!!!!

The Mystery Spot? That's the place where things seem to roll uphill. We almost bought a house very near there. I was hoping the antigravity might work on some of my body parts.

We aren't too far from the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose either. An old lady that was heir to the Winchester gun fortune thought she could keep the spirits of people killed with Winchester guns away if she kept building on to the house. So she did- for years. Dead end hallways, staircases to nowhere.

Becky, I am more than halfway through the book already! I was going to clean out my closet tonight. Oh well, another day. Thanks again!

Today I am the same weight as when I went on the mini-vacation I hope it sticks. Sometimes it takes me a day or 2 for "cheats" to catch up. I only have 44 days until Vegas and I won't watch what I eat there for sure!

I think somewhere along the line here I misspoke about my loss on Dukan. I have lost 13 pounds so far and I started June 22nd. I had been up to 232 but lost some prior to Dukan and meshed it all together in my brain. I still get a bit discouraged as I lost 10 pounds the first 7 days on Dukan and now only 3 since June 30th. Looks like pounds have finally started to move now though so will hang in.

I am so mad at myself. I dished up some cottage cheese last night and realized I had bought 4% I meant to get 1% (b/c I just can't stand the fat free) but 4% is too high a jump for me. Think I will toss it and go get the 1% while it is on sale. I did eat a little of the 4% anyway.

Gina glad you are enjoying the book. Anything I can do to help someone get out work is being useful in my mind

Gina yes the mystery spot I was there and the Winchester House!!!! I love that area!!!

Becky I would say you are doing fine, I do think Attack gets you all wound and then it seems slow after that, maybe that is when you need to mix it up, like go on Atkins a week, Dukan a week sometimes I think a mix up is good!!!

I am happy for you big time losers truly I am but I am struggling to keep a positive attitude.

Only losing 3 in 15 days is NOT acceptable to me and yet I don't know what I will do

Bejewel I know that changing things up sometimes works but I did just that the last 3 days. Just having a hard time with the slow lose and yet don't seem to have an alternative plan at this moment

Sorry to be such a downer. Think I should step away for awhile.

Great job!!!!

My scale is up again this morning. Blah ,but Last night i made beef with green beans and scallions and served it with fried rice for the family and the "noodles" for me. Prob. a little too much sodium ,but DUkan friendly besides that and my Hubby loved it. He is very picky about stuff like that.

Hoping to see a loss soon. I don't handle gains on this diet well ,but it gos down at some point.
