So Jazzid inspired me with all her protein talk, and I downloaded the BFFM book. Not finished yet, but almost 3/4 of the way through. I started adding in a fourth meal today, tried to keep supper to under 500 but was just a bit above it. It's ha... Read more

Instead, I walked about four and half miles at a good clip. I walked from one side of Manhattan, east to west, from the east river to the hudson :) That's more than three miles. Central Park was blissfully quiet... I also walked to ... Read more

So got on the scale yesterday after sweating profusely at Turbofire 45. I really kicked it this time and I burned almost 500 calories. I was down again, to 167.8, the lowest I've seen. But sometimes I am just dehydrated after working out, so was... Read more

I finished three months of Chalean Extreme today and I feel great. I saw a picture of myself from June and I couldn't believe I looked the way I did. I looked uncomfortable in my own body, and sad. Now, while still 30 lbs. away from goal,... Read more

I was so excited on Monday. Got on the scale after working out and saw 171.9 after seeing 174-176 for a week. Got on the scale on Tuesday, back up to 176. I KNOW I probably was water loss that I saw because I was sweating profusely and had not ... Read more

I was very psyched to start the second month of Chalean. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much stronger I've become. I started lifting with 20 lbs. for the lower body, and I've been using the 10s for the upper body, with the exception ... Read more

OK, I've been completely out of the spark for almost three weeks, and it shows. I kept up the exercise, but did not log my food at all, and it resulted in me gaining about 5 lbs. I was busy entertaining out of town guests for a week, in add... Read more
