It is cool, cloudy, foggy and wet here. The trails are much to muddy for a hike today since I have the day off. So going to hook the pup up for some sidewalk walking if it isn't raining, if it is I will just go test run the new gym I am being transferred to. Being a big vain and coloring my hair.... to many gray/silver/white hairs showing up for my taste. I am only 33 I should look young not aged.

Ok I added a pic not the best quality by any means but hey I think I look damn good and I even flexed! Boring day all I can say. So bored I took a pic of my lunch to share with everyone lol. Active rest day....SOOOOOOOOOO I did 15 min walk, 60 mins of yoga and 60 mins of boot camp. Finally broke down and bought a new blender that was on sale. Regular price they said was $49 but the box said $70 and I paid $30... either way I got a good deal! Comes with a juicer attachment, food processor attachment, 2 large cups, 2 medium cups, and 6 lids. My sister is now a happy camper! She hates cooking as soon as the temps rise like me and lives off fruit and protein smoothies.

PS I am in the white top with red under it and black pants

Breakfast: 1/2c oatmeal, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 banana
Snack: 2 scoops protein powder, 3 mandarin oranges
Lunch: 2 scoops protein powder, 2 brown rice tortillas, salad mix, apple, 2 carrots, celery w/ peanut butter and sweet chili
dipping sauce homemade
Snack: Green monster
Supper: mixed berry smoothie w/ 2 scoops protein powder, 1 slice millet bread and peanut butter (yes I LOVE peanut butter)

WOW!!!! You look awesome! Your arms are already huge! Keep up the good workouts!

When you go for a walk, is it a casual walk, or a power stepping walk?

At the gym it is usually faster than a casual walk. When I take the dog it is casual cause he has to stop and sniff everything. I dont feel like my arms are big. I know I still have a later of fast on them hiding all my hard work. But I can say that I refuse to give up

What a LONG day..... I spent 135 min mowing, bagging and weedeating my client's yard.....WOW!!! I think she sits on close to an acre. I used a nice power push mower so according to the exercise calculators I am looking at about 900 calories burned doing that. And it looks like I might be doing my parent's yard which IS an acre with a push mower. I can say my hands hurt from all the mowing. I need to learn to control my binge eating. I noticed I got bored after mowing and ate some chips......I get bored easily and raided the pantry at work.

Breakfast: 1/2c oats, 1/2 banana, cinnamon
Snack: 3 mandarin oranges, 2 strawberries, 2 scoops protein powder
Lunch: 2 brown rice tortillas, alfalfa sprouts, 1 apple, 2 carrots, 2 scoops protein, sweet chili sauce
Snack: Green monster
Supper: 3 strawberries, 1 banana, 1c frozen mixed berries, 2 scoops protein powder

Cardio: 25 min stationary bike hill program lvl 5, 25 min elliptical weight loss program lvl 5

Back/biceps
Giant set
Chin ups on assisted machine: 1 warmup set 10 reps, 3 sets 15 reps
Cable row: 1 warmup set 40 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 70 lbs 15 reps
Behind the neck pulldown: 1 warmup set 40 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 70 lbs 15 reps
Bent over smith machine row: 1 warmup set 20 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 50 lbs 15 reps
Hammer curl: 2 warmup sets 10 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 20 lbs 20 reps
Barbell curl: 2 warmup sets 20 lbs 10 reps, 3 sets 30 lbs 12 reps

I think you might have been calorie deficient after all that mowing! That is alot of exercise (full body workout is more like it), and I think your body needed the carbs right then and there.

Now choice may have played a role in the boring option. Was chips the only thing in the pantry at work? Though, chips has sodium that powers up the muscles for contraction, and fat is instant fuel for your body. But still, maybe something else was available?

If you are going to binge, then after a good cardio session (and mowing/weeding/spring cleanup is a cardio session) is the way to go! Though I am not endorsing binge eating. . . . .but it sounds so good right now. . . . no!no!. . . I am getting out of this house! away from the food. . . trail walk before it gets dark!

My choices were honey bbq chips, oreos, tortilla chips and low salt chips. Oh and jello, cake mixes, brownie mix, angel food cake, fruit in syrup, crackers, soups.... they were out of fruit cause I helped eat it during my boredom binges........

Thanks Diva :). I don't know if I would call tortillas much of a binge if you stuff them full of salad fixings and dip it into a chili sauce.

This week marks that possible last exercises at my beloved gym that I have lost 81 lbs at, gotten many bruises, smashed fingers, asthma attacks, lots of sweat, many thoughts of giving up and the place I found myself. This week I am going to give it my all plus another some. More motivation was Kansas beating North Carolina to advance on to the Final Four in New Orleans. The history between them still stings me so the victory was bittersweet! Was another active rest day for me and took it fairly easy till time for the game. I planted my butt on a stationary bike at the gym and pedaled for 51 mins during the first half. Worked up a good sweat!! Second half I was fidgeting so bad and running back and forth updating an aerobics instructor. After the buzzer I let out this big yell. My god it felt great to let that yell out. Ran to the aerobics room and let out several more milder yells confirming KU's victory. I then did yoga afterwards.

Cardio: 51 min stationary bike various lvls, 60 min yoga

Breakfast: 2 servings rice flour pancakes, syrup and coconut buttery spread
Snack: 3 mandarin oranges, 2 scoops protein powder, 2 grande iced coffee with a little soy milk and cinnamon dolce syrup
Lunch: 2 salad wraps, 9 low salt potato chips
Snack: 1 apple, 1 banana
Supper: mango tropical fruit blend, 2 scoops protein powder
Still kinda hungry but didn't get home till after 8 so the fruit smoothie I made will have to hold me over cause it is now after 9 and I don't want to eat anything else. I know I am lower in calories today but been a weird day

you are an inspiration. You need to send your story to Biggest Loser.

Brown rice tortillas mean at this precarious point are a "possible whole pkg. thing"...until I get a job and come to terms w/ what my ex hub has done..food is a slippery slope.

Thanks for inspiring!

I used to want to go on the biggest loser but I think it is better for people who need to drop the weight super day to save a life. As for my story.... It isn't done yet but I plan on sending it to oxygen magazine :)

No one at the gym will let me go a day without bragging about my loss, asking about my loss, calling me skinny or calling me the incredible shrinking lady.
