Will do. Never had much of an issue with body fat. I don't think it'll be too much if it does accumulate.

Okay, I got brave & got on hte scales. I gained back 2 lbs :( Weird thing is all the #'s were exactly except for lbs - +2lbs & fat - +1 lb; water was the same & muscle was the same. Sooooooooooooooooo, where did the other lb go????????????

Good news is my exercize class instructor really pushed us hard yesterday. I'll be back on track soon.

Measurements are not always exact especially if relying on bio-electrical measurement.

Hi just checking in.

Jumped on the scale this am -148.6
Hadn't been on it for awhile so it was nice to
see its still on track. No real reason not to b
I've been pretty good about following my diet.
In fact I had an epiphany last weekend. The
Dealership sponsors a boat every year and last
weekend was the races. We have a tent set up
And several employees and their families come
To hang out-lots of fun. Well there in an assortment
Of food and a German chocolate cake for the
general managers birthday. I had a piece- not huge
but adequate. Tasted really good, but not long after
wasn't sitting so good in my stomach. I didn't think
Much of it until a similar situation eating something
less than "clean" and same thing-upset stomach. I
think I've turned the corner and created a new good
eating habit. I'm planning on taking extra coolers to
c5fest to keep carrots, yogurt and some of the other
things I'm accustomed to eating and avoiding the
Food at the track. Im pretty happy with that but ice
Cream still sits just fine Still going to boot
Camp 3 days and doing some additional exercise at home

Feeling great and hope to see a lot on you at the fest

Thanks everyone

Ok ill join
I don't really care about scale weight. I've always weighed higher than I looked. High school I had the little bit of abs showing but was still 150lbs. Lose the abs and still weigh 150... Lol I go by how my clothing fits and stomach looks!

I have to keep my motivation though. I keep falling off the wagon and eating crap and not working out.

I had knee surgery two months ago and still have issues with it. It pops if I straighten it which hurts! I can't squat yet but have been doing "iron chairs".
Hopefully have an exercise bike here at the house by the end of the week. That'll make cardio MUCH easier!! My work schedule sucks horribly and I ride with someone to and from work so I can't stay after work to do cardio. I won't do cardio during work since I like to sweat it out.

Trying to eliminate all excuses...

The photo posted is of Becky and Ruby Camaro, two of the regulars here who have been doing great. They are at the fest but when back you will be in good company.

Check out some of the recipes posted and there are many food suggestions that make it easy to make quick, good meals. If you want, as many have done, you can post what and when you eat and suggestions can be made that may help as well.

Something I always suggest and do myself is cook in bulk, put the meals in containers then all you do is grab one, nuke it and you're on your way. It's just as easy to bake 6 chicken breasts as it is one so you've got 5 more meals already started. Winging it is when you are most likely to screw up

I've seen others say this, but honestly I rotate dead lifts and squats in to my workouts and never really see a lot of difference over leg press or lunges. I lift as heavy as I can on everything as well so it's not lack of effort. I change workouts every 90 days to keep the body guessing and just finished deadlifts and squats last cycle. Now I'm back to leg press and leg ext leg curl.

My friend is telling me not to have peanut butter or almond milk in my smoothies. I haven't eaten a damn thing all day. Adding a table spoon of damn peanut butter won't hurt lol
It's amazing how you can't even taste the kale in a shake!

I need to work on not skipping meals...

I am not sure of the reason why, if it's pre/post workout it may be because fat slows digestion but almond milk is the opposite as it is high GI. Or it may because in combination with your other ingredients the calorie content may be to high. Ask your friend the reasoning behind the statement.

That's why I'm not sure of the reasoning. I normally have a pre workout shake, recently 1/2 cup almond milk, 2 scoops ON, 1/2 banana, a few wild blueberries and Ice followed by a high protein, starchy carb meal post workout.

No that is my girlfriend. She is 5'2" and now about 129lbs. Vacation pics from a couple of weeks ago. She is 39 (she'll be 40 in October).

Squat year round unless you DON"T want to put on muscle mass.

You haven't eaten all day? And today is squat day?

If this is a habit you need to break it.

I have not checked in here for a long time. Life has been busy for the most part. Been running three days a week putting in between 4 and 7 miles each of those days. The other days I go to the gym. The first of June I was 224lbs, I'm now down to 198lbs. Sure feels good when you put on the pants or shorts and you have to add a new hole to the belt.
