Yesterday I stayed totally compliant so day 1 is in the books

Good day today except for some dairy

B- 3 HB eggs with mustard
Handful of nuts ( these need to go)
L- taco salad
S- handful of pepitas
D- roasted chicken cauliflower bake zucchini

Sad about the dairy, but at least there was enough fat that I am satisfied. I'll see how my run goes in the morning to see if its better than yesterday.

Did chest and back today
Skipping plyo tomorrow because of my knee, but planning on c25k 8 and shoulders/arms

Thinking about reading the induction chapter

Might have to experiment with dairy vs starcy veg

Success on day 1 again

I have decided to give the whole30+ a real shot. I just needed to get everything right in my head. I am really going to give it time to work. That being said, yesterday's food looked like

Br- 1/2 banana and a HB egg
L- 4 damn fine chicken legs from nom nom paleo amd zucchini, handful of nuts
D- meatballs, zucchini noodles, oil and garlic, grape tomatoes with olive oil
S- handful of Mac nuts

I need to cut back on the nuts, but I am out of avocado and need to make some mayo today because I need the fat.

I did shoulders and arms yesterday and really pushed myself. My knee is feeling better so I am going to try to run today and do yoga x - that's a big time commitment so I'll see how I do.

So January 23rd was my official start to 30 days...for real

A little update

The hour and a half for yoga x has been holding me back from doing it so, I didn't work out yesterday. I am either going to do a shorter yoga work out or skip it, do legs and back today and go to yoga and Pilates tomorrow. Which is probably the better option.

Food yesterday had way too many nuts- I think 2 or 3 handfuls of Mac nuts. I am never going to lose any weight eating like that. I need to put some of our grocery budget toward fat today. I need avocados, coconut milk, olives

Food yesterday was

Br- banana and Mac nuts
Lunch- soup with chicken, spinach and egg
Dinner- steamed shrimp with vegetables. I added some sesame oil but needed a handful of Mac nuts to be satisfied.

And no workout...on today

So I still can't get myself to workout, still fighting this cold, but food has been good.

I am eating diary, but not an absurd amount. I have cream in my tea and some cheese for a snack if needed.

Induction is going well- down to 170. If I start working out and keep at it- I may blow 168 out of the water for Feb. Knowing I will gain a bit when I pick up my workouts

Busy day today - off to get started

Shocking news here - still not really working out. This means I haven't since mid Jan. I need to get started cause I. Start my new job in 3 weeks! And I am kinda stuck between 169-168. I really want to see 157 by March 18, but not sure I can lose 10lbs in 3 weeks.

I know I need to check in here more. I have been over on the induction feb. challenge, so I am staying on plan and checking in.

Gotta get back in action tomorrow!!!

So today- did ok with food, but I had 2 spoons of sunbutter from TJ's and it has sugar in it.

Br. OMM cream cheese, bacon
Snack. 4 pieces deli turkey
L. Chicken wings, cukes, blue cheese
Snack. Small piece of cheese
D. Pork, sauerkraut, green beans, sour cream
Snack. 2 spoons sunbutter

I have to get rid of the snacks and watch portions a bit. I wasn't super hungry for dinner and probably could have eaten less.

Water was better and did a super quick Pilates workout, so getting back in the groove.

Hoping for another loss tomorrow, and will keep with the OMM as they seem to be doing the trick
I want to try wizzing some CO into my tea cause I don't like the oil slick on top. Maybe as an after Pilates treat

I am going to hang up the scale until Thursday. Lots of hormonal things going on and I can't handle the back and forth, up and down.

Staying on plan and big news!!! I figured out how to enjoy CO in my tea. A little wizz of the immersion blender and lady grey and its delicious!

So keeping it simple, not stuffing myself, adding veggies and fat. Along with working out I'll see what happens on Thursday.

So today looks like the following food wise

Br- OMM with cream cheese
Workout - Pilates
Post workout snack - tuna salad, tea with HWC and CO, piece of Brie
Lunch? Will see if I am hungry - there is taco meat in the fridge
Dinner- steak or lamb chops with green beans

Feeling good so far!

Thanks everyone for stopping by!!!

You have to try CO in tea! Christine I hope you liked it!
Dipsydoodle- how did the Callenetics go? What program are you doing?

Yesterday was good food wise, and workout wise. Only things that were off were water although a little better and sleep! The little one had us up again for a majority of the night/morning.

Yesterday I didn't eat enough before I worked out so I felt a bit yucky but ended up ok.

Br. Tea with CO, Hunk of Brie
L- taco meat and cheese
Sn - 2 egg salad
Dinner - chicken breast in butter and olive oil and green beans.

Need to eat some breakfast now. I am working out later tonight so I think dinner will be after. Also need to get some more veg in there.

So I think today will be
Br. Tea with CO, 3 ham and CC roll ups
L. 3 egg salad with cukes
Snack before work out - ?
D. Skirt steak with chimichuri sauce and cauliflower

Work out is Pilates reformer tonight!!!!!!

Thanks again for stopping by! Christine I need to catch up on your journal!

Keep up the great work! Not much to catch up on over at my place, same ol' same ol'! Weight is up, weight is down. Workouts are good, workouts are bad. Lather, rinse, repeat!

Have a great day! (Going to try the CO and tea this weekend. I need more CO!)

Happy March!!!!

I am going to repost my goals from the induction march challenge here to so I have them. Thinking I am going to start insanity along with keeping up the yoga and Pilates I have going. Also need to work out at night because when the job starts that's what I'll be doing and I need to make it a habit.
Ps - saying it here so I don't offend anyone - I really dislike Fridays on this diet during lent. It is really tough, but I guess that's what it is about...!

Post from other board


So I think I am really going to focus on working out effectively and keep food simple. I want to focus on good healthy food. Simple proteins, vegetables at lunch and dinner for sure. Pare back on dairy, but I will keep my 1 stevia per day because it makes me happy. I also don't want to get sucked into casseroles. I tend to cook for the week when I work and a casserole is a good lunch options, but not quite yet. Simplicity is going to be key. And I think a lot of easy to prep frozen veggies!

Trying for 3 meals and no snacks, but I do start a new job in 2 weeks and my days will be getting longer so I might need more food to keep going throughout the day.

So weigh in to start March - I think I might weigh each day (until it makes me crazy of course!)

March goal - 160 (but I really want 158)
3/1 - 168
Workout hard and keep food simple! Will be my mantra this month!

Here's to a wonderful March to all!!!!!!

Down to 167 today which is great. I also feel stronger from all of the Pilates I have been doing which is making me super happy today.

I want to start insanity today/night and keep up with all of the yoga and Pilates.

I have dinners planned for this week so eating should be good, even with my parents coming to visit.

S things here are good, and I am into the countdown to the new job.

I am skipping my weigh in this morning and I am yet to decide on if I will weigh in over the weekend. I was totally in a funk yesterday because I was up a pound. I can't let the scale control my day, I have things to do and a daughter to take care of and can't get crazy.

March goal 160 (would love 158)
3/1- 168
3/2- 169
3/3- 168
3/4- 167
3/5- 167
3/6- 166.5
3/7- 167.5
3/8- n/a

I also properly set up a tracker yesterday, and did some research on carb, fat and protein percentages as well as calories.

Here is where I netted out, but am not sure I can hit all of these percentages? Mainly the amount of fat within the calorie range.

Myplate came up with 1300 calories. Then I did the math for my protein needs from the Dr. Pinney formula and went from there.

For me I got
1300 calories
16 carbs (I am going with net here) - 5%
70 -81 grams of protein - 25%
101 grams of fat - 70%

Yesterday I ended up at
1500 calories
91 grams of fat -60%
12 net carbs -5%
119 grams of protein -35%

I am to sure what to make of all of this yet. I am just going to eat how I have been and commit to tracking and see how things shake out. It's the only way I see learning about my body and how it reacts.

Poor, poor neglected journal

Yesterday had I worked out I think I would have been closer in my calories, I was at 1500-1600 I think. Also went over in protein but was pretty close with my fat. I am at 165.5 for the second day in a row so I am going to keep on doing what I have been and really try and get the fat up and keep protein moderate.

Oh and I feel off the workout wagon for the last 3 days so I really need jump back on!

So I think I need to commit to visiting this space a bit more. I have time at lunch, once I figure out the wifi at work. I need to commit or I am so afraid I will just get used to carrying around these 10-20 extra pounds.

Need to be really clean this week and get back to working out and on the treadmill! Keep up with the yoga and pilates, and journal!

Here is to a good April

SO good food day yesterday, but I didn't workout or clean up much. SO trying again today- going to take the plunge and get on an earlier train home today- hoping this helps with the work out motivation. Also ate 2 squares of 90% lindt that needs to be thrown out.

Food for today:
Br. - 6 mini pork meatballs
Sn.1 - 2 string cheese and 4 cut up strawberries
Lu. - green beans, pork shoulder
Sn.2 - (on train) sweet potato Wedges and sunbutter
Di. - salad base, and protein of some sort ( had pork and salad last night)

here's hoping for a good day. I am feeling a little extra puffy today so I hope it helps get/keep me on track.

Wanted to use this space to write down a few notes

I want to add a 1/4 cup of raw/fermented sauerkraut to my breakfast next week. I think I am going to make the "meat muffins" from Well Fed and have one with some sauerkraut.

Morning snack will swap from sweet potatoes and sunbutter to celery with almond butter

Lunch will stay as is making sure there is CO on the veggies

Then I can have an egg with strawberries on the train home and have whatever dinner is.

As far as working out- I would like to do yoga in the morning except for Wednesdays. Cardio on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights. Callenetics on Monday and Friday nights. SO 2 things need to happen- I need to get my husband to join the gym so he goes out at night and I will stay home and work out and I need to wake up in the morning!

Here is hoping I can put this plan into place
