Probably true. Did you really have to have it?
Lose weight or Larabar?
(Bulking season: choice Larabar!, Cutting season: choice no Larabar/lose weight . . . sigh . = no fun!)

With the sheer volume of your training, your body is telling you it needs more nutrients. This time you chose the larabar as your nutrient source. Next time, maybe something a little more plain and boring.

Are you still taking the Lipo6? I know when that wears off in my body, it goes in the opposite direction of whatever 'up' I was feeling with it. I can feel myself coming down in the afternoon (though I have now spaced the pills out through out the day so I do not feel that way in the middle of the day) and know to take another one right away. Now I hit rock bottom at 9 PM (right after my dusk time trail walk), and feel so out of it as I climb into bed. But I know that is the stimulants, and though not good in the long run, it serves its purpose for right now.

No I didn't need the larabar was a want... better choice than the potato chips I could of reached for. I didn't get the pineapple peeled and sliced and just wanted something to kind of kill that emptiness. Maybe half a builder bar would of been better for the higher protein content... I am not on Lipo right now I wish I was cause it usually kills all cravings and I for some reason eat less. Lost .2 so am at 182.6 today. I measured my waist and it is down to 36 and my hips are 40 I think. Will do the official measuring next Saturday along with pics. Getting excited to compare Day 1 with Day 84!!

Thanks gobigo :)

Decided to take life easy today.... 50 min yoga, 50 min walking. I don't want to stress anymore!!!! It is time that I start having fun again. Since I have no plans for the night I think I am going to take a nice warm bubble bath and then read a book... something that doesn't require many brain cells to understand HAHAHA. I just need to unwind and chill so that I can regroup for the next phase of my journey.

Ummmm no thanks on the Twilight. I prefer an interesting easy read like true crime novels not trash.

So my night in fell through. Got asked out for coffee by a guy. Very nice and easy going, nice looking, my issue.... big ole meat eater. Granted he is very understanding of my lifestyle choice I just don't know yet. My diet will be messed up today since I didn't go grocery shopping last night either....Oh and finally got that pound off that I put on during my period so I can breathe again lol. Will be working hard and stop treating the new gym as my enemy and walk in with the attitude of if they don't like me they can suck it cause I am here to stay. I made my final car payment today and that is a huge burdon off my shoulders. Next task is to start paying off all my medical bills. Need to pull my credit report and start calling all my creditors and making payment arrangements and see if we can cut them down some and such. Time for me to start being a responsible adult. Maybe even look for a second job that I don't really want.... Sooner my debt is cleared up the sooner I can get my farm!!!

50 min cardio on the treadmill. I decided I wanted to do my booty lifter tonight. Speed started out at 3.0 then moved to 3.2 and ended at 3.5 for most of the 50 min. first 5 min I did an incline of 1% and then went up 2% every 2 min until maxed out. Stayed at incline of 15 for over 20 mins. My legs and glutes feel like they have been worked but not pain.

I have started looking forward to pancake Sunday since i found a wonderful recipe! Granted they aren't as yummy as regular pancakes but are by far the best gluten free recipe I have found :) and at least I can control the ingredients instead of using a box mix. I get to mow my acre of land today and possibly the neighbors if the blade height is different... should be fun

So my folks invited me out for supper tonight. Not a vegan place by any means but at least they have a salad bar, naked potato bar and fresh fruit. This is a step in the right direction for us! Hope I can eat $10 worth of food lol

Fresh fruit alone can cost $$, so 10 will be easy with that (especially if you go for the berries! and melon!).

Well I ended up with a few strawberries that didn't have any chocolate drizzled on them, pineapple, a plain sweet potato, plain baked potato, spinach salad with mushrooms, carrots, red wine vinegar, soy nuts, slivered almonds, sunflower seeds and a few black olives. Not a place I really want to go to very often cause the waist lines are about as big as the buffet bars.... It scared me to see all the fried chicken, steak, ham and seafood on these peoples plates and all the trips they were taking. I used to be that person!!! Felt nice being one of the few small people in there. BTW my weight is down to 180.8 now so I have lost a pound since my tough love talk :D I so needed that.
