Yeah, that is how I am too. In fact, I have to write pretty much everything down that I have planned to do (supplement routine is getting out of control, but the stupid stuff seems to be helping me out - so I can't really disregard the stuff can I?).

Maybe you can explain it to him, and then find a day and time that you can have a routine "date" or maybe even an "exercise date"?

I agree with you, in that sleep is precious to me (especially right now) and will not go out after 10 (evening cardio is 8-9 only).

We typically go out on either Friday night or Saturday night to the movies because it is something I can do that is in rest form but I always get the feeling he wants to do more. As for a exercise date... no he is to goofy and distracting that I could see myself falling off the step mill injuring myself lol. I think I finally got it through his head no food dates no food surprises ( I still swear that cake weighted over 5 lbs!!!) and to not bring me any coffee. I am trying to break my caffeine addiction one way or another. I am now on green tea and will switch to passion green tea next week and then straight passion tea. I detest cutting my sleep short except for Muscle Mayhem!! Luckily my first show won't be that one but a smaller one I hope. I still need to figure out what class I want to do. It excites me to no end now :)

I really think I am getting close to my monthly... I am feeling moodier, very gassy, cravings through the roof and lack of desire to be around people. My trainer gave me a good thrashing today which I needed since I indulged way to much..... 6 homemade cookies :( Not beating myself up but got major damage control to do. I finda felt like it was going to be this type of day when my breakfast didn't hold me over through my light am cardio and yoga. My tummy was rumbling and felt super hungry. Cardio ran late tonight due to talking to my trainer about the shooting range. Looks like me him and his girlfriend are going to go shoot some rounds one afternoon. Now that should help relieve some stress!!! I have been wanting to learn to shoot for protection reasons so I am going to jump on it since he is willing to teach me.

Cardio: 25 min track walk (leisure pace but not speed walk maybe about a 3.5 speed) 50 min yoga, 15 min lvl 7 recumb bike, 15 min cardio program lvl 7 elliptical, 15 min step mill manual program lvl 7 (wow trying to figure out how I managed this one)

Legs (let the trashing begin)
super set
TKE squats: 3 sets 20 reps each leg
walking lunges: 3 sets down room and back
superset
Box squat: 1 set 20 lb bar 20 reps, 2 sets 20 lbs DBs 20 reps
3 way squat: 1 set 5 reps each leg, 2 sets 15 lbs DBs 5 reps (forward lunge, angle lunge, side lunge)
super set
Deadlifts: 2 sets 45 lbs 20 reps, 1 set 65 lbs 20 reps (I always include the weight of the bar)
Single leg deadlifts: 3 sets 25 lb kettlebell 20 reps
super set
Jump squat: 3 sets 15 reps
Sled push:1 set 97 1/2 lbs length of room and back, 2 sets 97 1/2 lbs suicides
super set
Single leg bridge: 3 sets 20 reps
3 way calf raise: 3 sets 10 reps each direction

My trainer thought it would be fun for me to do something different than my partner so I got the deadlifts, single leg deadlifts, jump squat and single leg bridges. He seems to think I will be deadlifting 135 lbs pretty soon and that I should invest in some straps to help with my grip. I need to go back to carrying my gallon jug instead of the liter bottle. I drank 6 liters of water today yay me! Ready to crawl in bed and let my body recover. I think this is by far my favorite part of working out!!!

I don't know why but ground ginger has become a staple in my breakfast... It is just like I can't eat lunch without my crushed red pepper and loads of garlic. Won't complain cause ginger is good for me! I am now looking into buying a couple Spanx items to help hold me in and hopefully trigger my skin to start shrinking. Don't know what I am going to do about the arm jiggle though....

Ok hello hunger issues!!! Still over an hour before lunch and my stomach is not a happy camper right now and is really growling! No idea what to do to shut it up other than to eat and I don't want to eat until it is lunch time....... I have drank 2 liters of water since 7am it feels like another day like yesterday :( I think I need to invest in an appetite suppressant ????

I am not real good at recipes. I did half volume coconut oil, and half volume dates. And then added the zest and juiced 2 lemons. I think I had 24 dates and 1/2 cup of coconut oil - but not real sure.

I got the idea from the Thrive Book by Brendan, and he calls them Direct Energy Bites:
5 dates
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp lemon juice
sea salt to taste.
Combine in a food processor until smooth.

When I did the food processor, the coconut oil started to melt due to the heat from the processor. I just scooped up some of the half melted/soft mass with a spoon, put the spoonfuls on a plate, and stuck the plate in the freezer/refrigerator to cool the bite size pieces. When it cooled back down, I just made perfect little balls by rolling them between the palms of my hands, and kept them in the refrigerator in a plastic (BPA-free) container. I take them out, and they last awhile before they become too melted and will stick to your fingers when you touch them.

I also added the White Chia Seed Powder to my batch (maybe that is why I have so much lemon juice in my big batch that I did) so I could have some protein in the powerballs.

Sounds yummy!! I would probably roll them in coconut flakes hehe.

So today I had nasty hunger pains and did binge. Not mad at myself just need to start monitoring my monthly better so that way when I start getting close I can just slowly start adding in calories so that I don't feel the need to binge on everything. I am supposed to weigh in in the morning and nervous. I really want to hit that 100 lbs lost mark. When I go to work in the morning I will have an extra person to clean up after/take care of... At least they have stuff to graze on so they will stay out of my hair some lol. It is becoming more of a fact that I am going to have to get a second job as much as I detest the idea. Going to go see of the pet resort I take my pup to for daycare is hiring night help.

Cardio: 30 min walk with dog, 45 min step mill fat burner lvl 5, 15 min air bike, 50 min boot camp

Just got back from my weigh in with the trainer. Oh yeah he threw in measurements too... his scale said 175.5 mine said 173.8 I like mine better lol. I didn't get exact numbers but I know I lost 2 inches all over and 3 lbs down in 2 weeks according to his records. He wants to try upping my almond intake to see if that helps curb my hunger some more with the protein and fat

Feeling a bit creative in the kitchen so I am making spicy peanut ramen... well my version lol. I put in some green beans, yellow onion, sunflower seed butter along with peanut butter and using brown rice noodles instead of the thin rice noodles. Keeping fingers crossed. Tomorrow I will try pineapple lo mein!
