Sea,

I thought you were completely raw. Whats with the hashbrowns and coffee. Are there raw versions of those? And with the workouts you'll get back up to par. We are not machines, we dont function the same all the time. I'm sure you realize there are many variables that affect our workouts...Thats why we have next time! :D

Nope was high raw for some time (still had coffee). Started eating cooked a few days ago. Many people talked about how bad they felt going back to cooked, I didn't feel any different. Decided to add shakes back in, so we'll see how it goes. I'm not one to buy into any way of eating 100% (except veganism), I'll try different things til I feel best. Never been able to give up coffee though :lol:

Thank-you on both counts :)

It's been harder then I thought it would be. But I haven't had a drop since the party. I know it's calories I do not need and makes me feel icky in the AM. And I thought quitting smoking was hard! :shock:

I hope you're doing well with the Scotland crew. Looking forward to visiting you all in 2007. I imagine I'll learn a lot. 8)

My knee gave me some grief on the dead's yesterday which I've not had come up before. I pushed through, but am wondering if it could be related to form?

I was able to add weights to the deads, but my remaining routine was more difficult. Which may be a good thing :)

How many calories do you aim for a day? It seems like some days you get like 600? Unless the protein shakes have more than I think in them. Lemme know, I'd be interested to hear what it generally totals out to! You must know what you're doing of course

My calories vary from day to day. Right now I am undoing the damage done by not being able to work out when my toe was broken. That being said even on a "normal maintaining" day I take in much less calories then many people my size. I am blessed or cursed with a very slow metabilism. It doesn't take much for me to be able to feed my body and have energy throughout the day. My weight stays steady between 125-130 depending on how much water weight I am carrying at the time. I've not had problems dropping to low (which would mean risk of muscle loss). I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, everyone is different. The main thing is being sure I have energy, do not experience muscle loss, get enough nutrients from my food, and do not get hungry.

progress pic my daughter took this morning:
Not much coffee, not quite awake and hair just swept back. But, it'll do.

My shoulders and back are coming along nicely, and muscles are much more solid then before. I am quite happy so far, and look forward to further progress.

Yez, I am considering cutting down on foods like I did when I lost most of my weight when I was 17. I tend to be hungry most of the time regardless of what I've eaten, but my energy levels don't seem to be that affected by what I have or haven't eaten. Some of my best workouts have been when I've just woken up and haven't eaten anything at all.
