SUNDAY JUNE 1

Giving thanks today for His goodness, His blessings, the strength that I have in Him, the hope that only He can give.




But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

CARDIO ON THE GO TIP!

Million Dollar Boxing Body

Stand up in your office or anywhere you have a few feet of space around you. For the first minute, step side to side with your hands up as if to protect your face. For the second minute, make the side step a little deeper so that you are squatting at the mid point. For minutes three through five, plant your feet and work on repeating 16 of each of the following punches with each arm; cross punch, jab and upper cut.

For minutes six and seven alternate 16 kicks to the front with 16 kicks to the side and 16 kicks to the back. Arms are protecting your face. For minutes eight and nine, shift your weight from side to side and shadow box using any combination of punches that feel good to you. For the tenth minute stagger your legs and shift your weight front and back (alternating feet every couple of seconds) as you throw jabs.

Feeling somewhat frustrated with myself. My goal today was to control hunger. I decided to up carbs a bit, but I didn't want to go over 50 net, keep fat a little lower, and I wanted to keep cals between 1600-1700.

I accomplished none of that.

I was hungry throughout the day, ready to eat at each meal, not really feeling satisifed, but knowing I'd had enough.

Days like this I go into guilt mode and think, okay, get up and move, you don't have a choice, you've eaten more than you should be eating, and you have to burn it off.

Felt tired/sleepy when I got home from work, no energy to work out. But somehow, I'll have to make myself do some cardio before the night is out.

CALS 2043

PROT........220 GR.........43
CARBS.......98 GR.........16
FIBER........37 GR
FAT............99 GR.........42

WORKOUTS:

1 hour Super Callanetics a.m.

25 mins cardio....sometime before bedtime

Feeling good today. Judging from feeling, and the mirror, the excess calories yesterday haven't seemed to do any damage. But still! I need to work on sticking to a deficit a few days a week. I've learned that when my body is saying EAT, it must mean something. We're told to listen and learn from the time we're tots, but if we have the slightest tendency to be perfectionist/control freaks, we find ourselves wanting to call all the shots with fingers in our ears, so to speak.

The quest for fitness is an ongoing journey, one of extreme discipline, requiring patience, acceptance, discernment, commitment, and perserverence. There are no shortcuts. No push-button, overnight makeovers. There are valleys and there are mountaintops.

I keep moving closer to the finish line.

I did 23 mins of Turbo Jam Cardio this morning, followed by Level 2 of Jillian Michaels Shred.....HAVE MERCY!!!!!!

I think I'll plan on skipping TJ the next time I do JMS, or at least not do them back-to-back. I feel like I'd been kicked to death! But WOW what a rush when I've cooled down, rehydrated, and assessed my "expenditure."

Hard work is far more rewarding when it's over than when you're doing it, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Touché on ALL counts! I concur w/ Lovenuts: GREAT post.

I'm in "damage control" mode from my 45th B'Day w/e. Really, I ate pretty good, mostly on track. The only off-track moments were a bit of potato salad on Saturday and a few pancakes on Sunday. My B'Day cake was a crustless cheesecake - YUM. And a LOT of fine wine. Oh we had Pinot Noir GALORE from wineries all over Napa, Dry Creek, Santa Barbara -- you shoulda been here girl! My two best girlfriends (since 2nd grade!!) flew in w/ their hubbies and we enjoyed an AMAZING weekend. This one goes down in history as being one of the BEST, ever.

THANKS for the Happy B'Day Butterfly Balloon(s)! PURRFECT. Made me smile BIG! Where in the world did you find THAT one??

[COLOR="Sienna"]Tues June 3 End of Day

I was able to put a cap on the cals today a bit easier. I decided to keep carbs around 30-40 the rest of the week, let fat and protein fall where they may, but trying to get in no less than 150 gr of protein per day. Today was slightly under, but it's because I was keeping fat higher on purpose to push into ketosis. It will work out. This is my plan till vacation, increasing protein slightly each day. I'll do my last refeed this coming Saturday. Then no other "refeeds" till after vacation.

I'm one of those oddballs who sticks to plan eat-wise all through vacation. I don't like feeling like jello, and eating off plan makes me feel that way. I will allow myself to have late afternoon adult beverages, but otherwise, on plan eating all the way. I don't feel deprived eating this way.

In place of refeeds, I'll allow a couple higher days of carbs, esp on the days that my workouts are most intense (beach run days), and that will include an occasional lowfat icecream by sunsets.

TODAY'S CALS 1734

PROT............142 GR.........33
CARBS............40 GR........8
FIBER.............10 GR
FAT...............114 GR........58

Workouts:

23 mins of Turbo Jam Cardio; Jillian Michaels Shred Level 2, 20 mins

UB biceps, triceps, rear delts - 20 mins in p.m.

[COLOR="sienna"]Horrid day yesterday. God was testing me, my patience, my ability to remain calm under trial. Forgot my power cord to laptop, had to drive all the way home to get it and then back to work, all to beat the clock for a deposition, and it kept going downhill from there. Don't want to resurrect the ugly details, trying to move on.

Now for the good news: Yesterday was a lean day. Feeling very encouraged. DOMS in UB were a source of comfort to me, oddly enough, that at least something was working in my favor. Hoping for another 1 lb loss before I leave for vacay.

Yesterday (Wednesday's) totals:

1728 CALS

PROT 151 GR, 36%
CARBS 25 GR, 5%
FIBER 7 GR
113F, 58%

WORKOUTS:

1 Hour of Super Callan
Several hours of anxiety/stress

Today is a new day.

I weighed in today, and was up one pound from my last weigh in about 2 weeks ago. Not worried about it. Feeling lean, and I'm sure it's only flucs.

Very busy day, right up until this minute....I'm exhausted and ready for bed. Not my usu Friday, but I'm getting stuff accomplished for work and I want to put it behind me.

TODAY'S TOTALS:

CALS 1737

PROT..........184.........43%
CARBS.........38..........7
FIBER..........12
FAT............100..........51%

WORKOUTS:

1 hour of Super Callanetics. I put so much into this workout this morning, totally engrossed in form. I've never perspired as much as I did today, doing Callanetics, so I knew when I was finished it was the best I'd ever done. My butt/hips are feeling it as of about 1.5 hrs ago, so I'm reminded of my hard work. How I love this workout!

Lots of errand running and chores, all evening, plus transcript work. No other time for anything.

Tomorrow is last refeed before vacay. Won't be able to start till close to noon.

Post Refeed Observations.

I know I've mentioned this before, but it still amazes me that I can go from eating low to very low carbs all week, and then jump to over 300 on a given day, and the very next day show relatively NO SIGNS of having eaten more carbs or more cals, no bloating, no discomfort. In fact, judging from my mirror this morning, had I been on the beach, I would have had no reservations about wearing a bikini today -- POST REFEED. This just still blows my mind.

TKD is such an awesome strategy. I don't want to give it up. I know that I have to graduate eventually into adding more carbs a couple of times during the week, and cycling from low to mod, or low to high. I'll have to learn how to do this in baby steps.

I was back into ketosis immediately upon waking this morning. I had fat-free cottage cheese with flax, PP, and 1 Tbs of Coconut Oil with coffee, and 2+ hours later I wasn't the least bit hungry. Ended up eating eggs, turkey bacon and a bit of spinach a few hours later when my tummy let me know it was time.

My workout this morning was HIIT on the elliptical. I usually begin at Level 4 for warmup, and then go up to Level 6 or Level 7 for my intervals, 2:1 ratio of intensity to recovery. I can always tell that just before my refeed, after having gone on low carb all week, it's tough for me to do HIIT. I struggle with leaving Level 4 or 5, and I'm weak with exhaustion by the time it's over. This morning, I was breathing heavy, but I could have done more intervals. The afterglow of the refeed carbs was still pumping me with loads of energy. Yet, no appetite, no bloating. So cool.

I was beginning to sort through clothes today, thinking about what to pack for vacation. I pulled out a pair of my favorite khaki shorts that I had worn in 2006, and because I weigh more ON THE SCALE than I did then, I was doubting they would fit, would still be too snug to look presentable. I thought, may as well try them on to see how far I have to go.

THEY FIT!!!!!!!! FIT PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Proof that I've lost body fat even if the scale is hanging on to higher numbers! I know for a fact I've added lean body mass in my upper body especially, because I can see far more definition in my arms than I had back in 2006. But to try on those shorts and to see how well they fit..........THAT SO MADE MY DAY!

Colton played for the Reds this year, and they were the number one team all season. He made a triple and a double at yesterday's game, and they won. Today was the final playoff game against the Texas Rangers, and we won! The Reds were the season champions! Hot as you know what today, but we guzzled water and worked on our tans! The victory was soooooo worth it.

What a great day.

Back to proofreading.....and enjoying the freedom of ketosis. Life is good.

Busy all day with last minute STUFF before I leave for vacay. Got a pedicure, picked up some new sandals, sunscreen, snacks for the car, did laundry, cleaned house, etc. STUFF.

I had a late lunch do to busy-ness, say around 2:30, and I began my workout today at 4:00. Five min warmup of cardio, then weights --30 min UB, 20 min LB-- and I wanted to end up with some cardio. I got through about 10 mins and I was wiped out. So I figured, may as well eat a few carbs and kick this thing in the rear. I had only 1/4 cup Kashi Go Lean, then finished up with another 20 mins of AbJam. By 7:00, I still wasn't hungry! Go figure. The carbs? What else?

Ah, yes....balance. The elusive key to this equation. Gotta love it.

About AbJam: It's one of the most intense/effective ab w/o's I've yet to encounter, and what makes it even better is it's a "cardio" ab workout. I really get my heartrate up when doing AbJam, and I love the "ab aches" when I'm done!

Ended up eating a bit of lean grilled chicken, spinach and green beans around 7:45.

Totals so far ..... (including a Carb Master Yogurt that hasn't been eaten yet, but will be....)

CALS 1400

PROT..........146 GR..........43
CARBS.........53 GR...........12
FIBER..........15 GR
FAT............. 70 GR..........45

(incredible balance today)

WORKOUTS:

As stated above.

[COLOR="Sienna"]TUES JUN...? WHAT DAY IS IT?

JUNE 24. RIGHT.

BACK FROM VACAY. TOM ARRIVED ON SUNDAY, A WEEK EARLY, SO THAT WAS TERRIFIC . GREAT WAY TO WELCOME ME BACK TO REALITY.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT'S DEFINITELY TIME FOR VERY FOCUSED DAMAGE CONTROL MEASURES. :blush:

Stayed on plan and very focused, both menu wise and workout wise the whole time (worked out every day, lots of cardio, weights 3 days), up until Friday before I left the island, and TOM hungries, a "last-night Italian feast," coupled with fatigue/boredom from the drive home, all made for a very alarming reading on the scales.

So no use crying over spilled milk. Beginning yesterday, meticulous food journaling (did no journaling on vacay at all), and got in 40 mins cardio, 1 hour Super Callanetics, and Power90's 200 AbRipper.

(Although I'd done the entire Super Callanetics workout twice during vacay, about four days passed before doing it again, which was Monday, and the muscle fatigue was unbelievable! OUCH! It felt like someone had been pounding on my hips/thighs with a hammer! This workout never ceases to amaze me!)

This morning, 43 mins of Turbo Jam Cardio Party, 200 AbRipper, and will do JM Shred after work (20 mins) and another 30 min power walk later tonight.

Vacay was absolutely wonderful. Just hated to see it come to an end. My birthday celebration was spent with friends at the resort, beginning with tropical martinis and appetizers, music, gifts, followed by dinner at a lovely restaurant over the bay, good food, wine; followed by Cold Stone Coffee Lovers Only for dessert....OMG, soooooo delish. Sinfully delish.

[COLOR="magenta"]Marsha & HB, thank you for those birthday wishes! How sweet! [/COLOR]
