Bummer about the kidney stone and the hassles of moving. But I'm sure things will start to go better once you've moved into your new place. Keep doing your best!

Thanks Mark, it has been tempting to give up - but I'm not a quitter - so even if I don't get any votes, its all good 8)

Really depressed last week :cry: I realized yesterday that this is June already, the last month of the spring contest. Vowed to myself I will give this last bit more effort even though I am perpetually bummed out about living in a motel. At least I have my bicycle.

6/4: 90 min bicycle (in the rain)
6/5: 60 min dog walk (got a blister on the ball of my left foot)

We found a cute place to rent - with a nice big insulated garage where I can set up my body building equipment - July 1st we move in. Hooray!!

6/7: 60 min dog walk
6/8: 75 min dog walk

Oh - got my results back on the kidney stone - eating too much high oxalitic acid content foods like: spinach, nuts, soy, chocolate. Apparently the oxalate binds with calcium and forms crystals that build up into stones. An internet search showed I could take calcium supplements at the same time I eat to avoid too much natural calcium depletion. Curious...
Also, have to stop using bleach as a cleaning product since the fumes act as a chemical binding agent for the calcium & oxalate. No loss there - I've been wanting to change my cleaning ingredients to be more green anyway.

I finished this contest - but did not achieve what I originally wanted. I sent Lelle a photo of me at the Grand Canyon instead of "after" shots because I gained 18 lbs instead of losing weight. I do have better muscle tone, and I am grateful to have participated in the Spring Contest because I exercised much more than I would have while going through the stress of moving (thank goddess we finally moved to a rental home on July 1)!! Thanks to everyone for your support during this spring contest!!!
On July 14 I am starting THE THRIVE DIET and a new set of workout goals that I will post on a new thread in the on-line training journal. I'm determined to look "Fabulous at Fifty" and since I turn 48 on July 5 - then I have 2 years to get in shape.:bodybuilding:[/img]

Good luck on the thrive diet.
I read Brendan's first book, Thrive, is this book the same with added recipes?
If it is different, I will get this book too.

It is different in the sense that there is a lot more information. Plus, there are around 100 recipes, a 12-week diet plan all layed out for you, and resourses to get stuff you might not be able to get at your local health food store.
