How about a creamy potato soup? When I had mouth surgery in my late teens, and had to have my whole mouth wired together while it healed, I drank soup and smoothies all the time. Make sure you put some oil of some sort in the soup to keep you feeling full for awhile. Sorry about your wisdom teeth having to be pulled - that just Sucks! Maybe your green monster smoothies will help in the healing also!

I didn't have the money to buy any food to help me heal. Trust me I would loved to have drank green monsters the past couple days! Luckily I had applesauce and apple butter in the freezer for the winter and a large container of peanut butter. It has helped me along with protein shakes. By tomorrow I will be eating food again but taking it easy on cardio. I did my weights and went to do cardio halfway through I had to call it quits cause the pull sight was throbbing something fierce. At least I got 36 min of cardio and all my weight training in :) Will be glad to eat some tofu and broccoli tomorrow!!!!

Ok this makes me feel good!!! My dog is embracing a vegetarian diet!! Unfortunately my step dad still gives him meat behind my back. My sister also treats him once in a while to some plain ground turkey. He is on a vegetarian dog food with treats of watermelon, asparagus, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, apples, peaches (minus the pit and only small amount), carrots and snap peas. Those are his favorites by far!!! I am trying to work on his weight to keep it down so that we can keep health issues to a minimum. Plus this gives me another excuse to sneak in extra cardio hahaha. But I am so glad he is enjoying his new diet!!!

I got home from work/gym and found a package on my bed. It is a lunch crock!!!! I can now start my lunch in the morning and then take it to work to finish up and I won't ever have to change container to transfer it either. I wonder what it would do for my morning oatmeal???? Just might have to try it tonight!!!

LOVE my new lunch crock!!!! My lunch was warmed perfectly and if it was a size bigger I could add in my rice!!! Not a terribly bad day to be honest but rather a nasty boring day! Although I did get a rate decrease with my trainer today because my sister is now training. I honestly thought she wasn't going to go today but she surprised me. I leave it up to her and ask so she has a choice in the matter. I think my trainer is turning me into a beast hehe. I want to make some tank tops that say beast in training :). I slacked on cardio today. I really should have done the step mill first and 10 min left to go I just couldn't talk my legs into finishing out. Will make up for it tomorrow. I really should make a pitcher of iced decaf coffee for at night when I crave coffee

Cardio: 32 min treadmill 15% incline 3.2 speed, 20 min step mill lvl 5 fat burner

Chest/triceps/shoulders
Flat bench press:

I am really glad I am not doing boot camp for a couple more weeks.... My trainer is taking full advantage of that and liking it! I think he is getting a bit antsy to get to the bulking stage cause that means he gets to use his favorite saying to me as he ups the weight... You make that look to easy with his evil grin. I got a bruise over the weekend from heaving a weight plate over my shoulder and posted a pic of it though you can't really see it in the pic he STILL got excited and was like BATTLE SCAR!!!! His GF called me crazy and my dear mentor called me monster and to take it easy.

Yes the wait is almost over!!!! Forget reaching my goal I am to impatient we are going straight for the bulk!!!!!! Trainer is on board and ready to see my body react. Frankly I am just ready to lift heavy things like a beast and flex and have muscles!!! I need to seriously work on my diet so that I can ensure I get enough protein and carbs to fuel me for my sessions. Will keep my cardio sessions to 45 min/day. Went to get my temporary crown done today and going to have to go back to have it adjusted. It is going to affect my bite.

I was thinking of doing lots of fruits and vegetables and some nuts and oatmeal. Still going to enjoy a cinnamon roll or 2 every Saturday but not going overboard. Also won't turn down a dinner date now!! Basically what I am doing now but double portions except I will eat more fruit :) today I could of broke down and had cookies and pop tarts to kill a nasty craving but opted for 6 dates and a small bowl of red grapes instead. I will be happy not doing all the cardio and have a bit of a life again. Will find out tomorrow when I can start upping my food intake. I am noticing I don't like processed foods and will pick yummy whole fruit and veggies

Cardio: 32 min treadmill 3.5 15% incline, 30 min elliptical lvl 6 weight loss program

Enjoy bulking, and feeling the muscles grow! grow! grow! I've gained back 8 lbs already, and my muscle mass is back to its big fullness - but not the bodyfat! But I still need to get my bodyfat down again till vascularity and definition pop out for me to get to the image I have in my head of what I want to look like.

I am going to enjoy this a lot. I already told him I refuse to go above 180 so will be watching the scale slightly but will also be going by how my clothes fit. I don't want to have to go buy fat girl clothes again. Luckily I have 3 pairs of pants that aren't forgiving so when they are tight I will cut back on the fruit and up the cardio a bit. Just hoping that doesn't happen. I know last night I ate a little to much sodium cause my tummy feels big :( so starting my day off with a double mixed berry smoothie (2c mixed berries, 1c coconut milk, 1 1/2c water and 2 scoops rice protein powder). That should help me feel better soon

I just want to say that trying to do low intensity cardio after MONTHS of higher intensity cardio is flipping hard?!?!?! I had to keep a close eye on my heart rate and not get it over 125 per trainer orders.... Ooops guess I better take some songs off my ipod so that I don't kill it with the songs hahahaha. One song had me at 151...... so I got an extra lil burn in there. Must do better tomorrow!
