Hi gang! Well I'm going for it! I started calculating my calories at spark in March of this year. During this time I've been gobbling up all the info on the body building sites etc, because it seems like they actually know how to get results. It's like the rest of the world is blind and have been doing it all wrong. It's actually quite amazing, and at the same time pissed me off, because woman especially are getting tricked with all the gimmicks. Anyway I digress...
I have a mommy of five body, did not loose the "baby" weight. Primarily because I really only ate one meal a day, dinner. I just wasn't hungry. Also I drank soda all day long, oh and tons of coffee. Oh and smoked.. Gees I was a mess! Quite smoking in Jan. And during this health journey I'm adapting everything I can. I've been eating mostly clean, and I'm looking to improve this more and more. My main problem has been dinner.
I have a big family and I need to prepare food that they will eat. Everyone likes veggies etc but they also like mac and cheese, pizza, lasagna, well you know regular "family" meals. So I'm going to read read read here. And pick up more and more of your strategies. Maybe swipe some recipes.
I'm not going 100% clean. I am going to start up on the whey protein. As I'm going to kick up my weight lifting a notch. I am not looking to become super buff, just well a healthy weight, I have a lot of muscle under all this blubber, so I want to protect the muscle I have. I'm not doing the spark weight loss plan. I consume more calories then that on purpose, everything I've read counters the low calories suggested. I've done my own calculations. It's amazing how much knowledge is out there! And on here! I want to at least go 80% clean, right now I'm at about 60%. Its a major improvement, but I can do better!
Well I'm on board! Don't know if I'll join in to many chats, but I'm defiantly reading!
