Hmmm...my insides hurt as well as my intestines are swollen,...again. As I I gained 5 lbs overbite


So far, 4.5 mile at the beach, 1/2 on boardwalk and 1/2 right on the beach on the sand. Because I can. And it was fast, and yesterday was lunges as well as I had a fab massage last night, so my butt was so tight and sore...Love it. I have so much muscle,..when I hurt it's a god thing!

Thanks...I know my loose skin sucks, but so does being 50 and having 3 grown kids. That's me hating my legs..you should see my arms, shoulders and back--I could compete tomorrow. . I hate my thighs, and I feel heavy. I know...crazy. By the way,you look awesome in your cutting, and kudos on the guy. It's always fun to have someone interested.

I do a lot of cardio..always have. But lifting is the bomb. I have just had a hard time focusing with my current lay off and family issues and getting caught up in "the food". I hate losing weight,so I stay manic about my food. But I always wish I were 5 lbs lighter. Crazy stuff.

BLEW OFF CARDIO. Ate gluten/fat free brownies (egg whites- my bad, but I am right now as my intestines are bad again and I am not eating much of anything w/ out doubling over in pain- so---a whole container of VEGA I can't use--will give to my mentor in life- a 67 year old ultra marathoner that still kayaks, lifts and just this year switched from running to walking as he risks having his ankle fused, and screws his GF regularly- she is 64 and runs 8 miles a DAY---)so, sporadic egg whites, but they make me wanna vomit as well ---doing l glutamine and drinking lots of kombucha and avoiding all raw , anything w/ seeds and o grains when I am like this and nut butters have to be finely ground- its bad---but, life goes on....the brownies go down smooth. as well as potatoes and limited amounts of tofu...

wanted to blow my work out off entirely, but I DID it, cause losers quit- WINNERS don't! so small as it was...I did it!

yup on the Gastro; I choose not to treat the IBS with anything--and I could have had my intestines ripped apart and resewn back in November--I thought it way too invasive as well as there was a 5% chance it wouldn't work---so, I chose the hernia ( worthless surgery as I look back now), and so choose diet and a minimalist approach to treating---for now. Thanks for the thought!

Again, thank you and aw shucks. I got stopped by Men (boys- mid 30's- ha!) at the gym....I feel BIG...and yet all week I have been hearing how great I look. Hmmm

But...guys are starting to notice me again...have been in such a black cloud..I think they always have....but the cloud is not as dark these days...can see light. It's nice. I can't wait till its so bright...I need sunglasses!

Thanks Robert.

Giving up potatoes for lent, even tho' I am Jewish ( ha- kidding, don't practice anyways)

and Giving up gumdrops, GF bagels and cream cheese, too. And anything I know I will binge on...I hafta white knuckle it, as until I get a job, the weeks I don't have my 50% custody, I binge...the weeks I have my daughter I am ninja, stealth perfect on diet and training. So, correlation and tie inis EMOTIONAL...and emotions are NOT predictors of whats real. Time to buck up and quit being a f-ing baby. Oh, and EnviroKidz Leapin Lemur bars and cereal...I will make that my next cheat in two weeks! Off to cardio and legs will be later.
