Aww diva i don't do much really. Just eat to live, train like hell, cheat daily :) and start the next day all over again. Finally getting it through my head to eat what i want but in moderation. When its time to cut then i will be critical of my eating. All these yummy fall flavors are not going to be missed by me!

Diet won't be up to par today but then again I won't be at home, around a fridge or even a microwave or stove. That's right kiddos today I will be volunteering for a 5k obstacle course. Packed a vega all in one packet, vega protein bar, PB sammy, thai sesame peanut wrap, apple, 4 servings of protein powder and sweet chili sprouted tortilla chips. That doesn't include dinner which will be on the way to a BB show where I will have dark chocolate and wine with a friend who is competing.... well after she is done and can enjoy a little indulgence :)

I wish the gym was open!! To damn cold and dark to go for a run. Tired and slightly sore from standing around shivering yesterday at the run I volunteered for but wouldn't change any of it. The BB show was awesome! My yoga instructor swept all of figure open, masters and overall. I think my workout partner is really leaning towards the board short category but still has some thinking to do on it

I like that you update so regularly, it shows that you really care about sharing your progress with us. I can really see the massive progress you have made step-by-step. It is really inspiring.

Thanks man. I actually love to look at pics of the new me and sharing them. Granted I still love being behind the camera it is getting much easier to be in front of it now. The main reason I posted this pic today was because I needed a reminder close by of what I am striving so hard for... just to compete and prove to myself that I can do something, not quit and not be the person I used to be at 270.....

You really have come a long way, but you still have some distance to go. I know from personal experience that one can look at the progress one has made and the feeling of accomplishment takes away from what still needs to be done. That is a bigger risk right now that the very difficult task of reverting to your former self. Do not settle yet! I am watching you!

Trust me reverting is not an option. My eye is still on the long term and know I still have a long road ahead of me. It is now a matter of getting my work stress level under control which will get my binging under control but when I can go running or even zone out to clear my head it makes it super hard.

Love reading your nutrition... makes me realise that I'm not as good and diligent as I often think I am haha.

Breakfast troubles... soak your oats the night before and you're good to go !!

I forgot to mention my afternoon snack was 1/3c raw pumpkin seeds and an orange. The scale showed i either had to much or i had to much salt. I think it is both lol. I actually did soak my oats so they are ready, coffee pot just needs started and i forgot to pack my lunch last night... I tried my hand at making seitan but looks more like dumplings lol. 1/2c oats, 1tbsp whole flax seed, 1c soy milk and a tsp vanilla. Before i left for the gym i drizzled on some agave and sprinkled on cinnamon. Never had cold oatmeal before.....

I started thinking about adding in HIIT cardio 3 days a week but do it twice a day on those days. Need to work on blasting some fat off this body. From what I have read it won't hurt my muscle mass so it is worth a try. Especially since 2 of the days a week are long boring days at work so will help me with a nice afterburn while I am stuck inside not able to go out or do anything. I should be able to go back to doing yoga this week thank god! I wish I could nap today but will just get to bed early tonight. My boxer decided that during the night she was going to whine and scratch at her kennel door to get out. She just wanted to snuggle with me and my basset.

AM cardio: 15 min step mill weight loss program starting lvl 5 ending lvl 8

Calves
Seated calf raise: 3 sets 45 lbs 30 reps
Standing calf raise: 3 sets 60 lbs 30 reps
3 way leg press calf raise: 3 sets 110 lbs 30 reps
Bench leg raises: 3 sets 20 reps

Post workout
2 scoops protein powder

Breakfast
1/2c dry oats
1c soy milk
1 tbsp whole flaxseed
1 banana
2 tsp agave
cinnamon

Morning snack
2 slices ezekiel bread
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 honeycrisp apple
1c soy milk
