I love my family! I guess we're all fit enough to jump.

Lunch run along south side of Mississippi River in St Paul on Feb 16, 2012 (30 deg F, wind 10-15mph)

Time to head back to work. Lunch is almost over. Need to make good time.

    *eh* I never thought of timing my carbs as to teaching my body to go after the stored fat. I know I need the carbs to power the workouts - especially the heavier ones. I'll have to look in to this!

    Last night, though - totally lost it. I'm not even going to list what I scarfed.. at least I didn't eat a bag of cookies or pint of ice cream!

    in response to your comment on my blog, this is def more of a "newbie" site and def more of a weightloss site. and i credit this site to helping me start, but I am excited to bring crossfit and powerlifting here to show ppl that it's nt just about cardio and counting calories!

    My squats are actually still bodyweight. I'm doing 20 of them and also, being careful with my knees as I work on my form. My butt is *weak* and I think adding weight would make me shift forward, until I get the muscle memory and strength.
    The Smith machine need was actually all for upper body - adding more weight without the need of a spotter.

    When it comes to adding weight for my squats and lunges, I'll probably use a backpack. Bonus - it helps pull me back a little.

    Ha! just saw you're a programmer. So am I, though really just VBA. But I work from home and between programming and writing books, my hips and back became quite a mess. Getting up to exercise once a day wasn't very useful. So, last December, I bought a standing desk - and I end up standing more. Course, I then had to learn to stand properly. Yes, that's a thing!

    Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Feb The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon
