    My Body Creation

    "You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing."
    Rene McPherson


    HISTORY:
    This is my post-pregnancy body re-shape. I'm determined to have the best bod I can have (for multiple reasons). I've come a long ways but have a long ways to go..........

    Diet/Nutrition:
    This is my weak point. I've always found the subject rather boring but I'm taking more of an interest lately. Hoping to get all the gurus here to help steer me in the right direction.

    Stats:
    5'8"
    23%bf
    LBM 140.2

    Current Exercise:
    Cardio 3 days moderate 20 to 30 min., 2 days HIIT
    Weights - Legs twice a week - UBWO split to 2 days
    At least one day of volleyball

    Current Diet:
    As of today I've cut out the yogurt......
    I absolutely abhor calorie counting, yuck yuck yuck, but will be working with fitday as much as possible.
    Today's plan
    8:30 Meal 1: non-fat cottage cheese with strawberries
    Coffee with non-fat milk (had planned on lean turkey omelette but late to work and left my food at home)
    10:30Meal 2: MRP - LeanBody for Her, carrots, flax oil
    12:30 Meal 3: Chicken & Soba Noodles with Pad Thai Sauce
    3:30 Meal 4: Spinach Salad with broccoli and edamame
    4:30 Workout
    6:30 Meal 5: Salmon with a little wheat couscous
    8:30 Meal 6: egg white omelette with green pepper

    Also take a multivitamin and Glucosamine/Chondroitin every day. Emer'gen-C every other day

    I know I need to work on getting specific with portion size. I go with the fist rule still. I welcome comments - suggestions. Please remember I'm a puter geek not a nutrition one so please excuse any obvious flaws (I know I have a ton of those)

    Goals: 18%BF by July 13th (plus a whole bunch more but don't need to share everything

    Hey CQ, Leslie right?

    You need to weigh your protein to make sure you're getting enough first. After doing that for a while you get used to eyeballing and then you don't have to weigh.

    What is edamem? a kind of cheese?

    How old is your little one now? Congrats!

    FRIDAY!! I love Fridays!! Think I will have to have some wine tonight (and I hardly ever drink).

    Well - I start a new 12-week mission (Kind of my personal competition ) on Monday. So I will start posting diet and exercise at that time. I will be going to a trainer twice a week and really cracking down on the food.

    Staying healthy with the food the next couple of days but not going to log it or plan it until Monday. I'll just get in some cardio until Monday. I need the 3 day break before refocusing.

    A break is always a good idea ... just don't let the break get out of control food-wise.

    We look forward to the new journey to begin Monday.

    A nice Pinot Noir
    Why do they even make white?

    I think most people will still eat detours (unless they are forced out of business).

    I am going with 1fast's results since I know and trust him.

    As to white wine, I really don't know. And what will you be eating with your red?

    I avoid bars unless I'm in a crunch or on the road. But, it sounds like with the recipe changing and the label the results might be moot.

    Salmon - I definitely feel like some salmon. Or maybe I'll make my balsamic chicken - oh yummy, I want to go home now and eat ...

    I like you because:

    1) liked the attitude in the detour thread
    2) the red wine
    3) the twins confirmed it

    Well, now I'm having doubts about starting a journal here. Of all the places I visit and post I decided that this was the most knowledgable site and the place I could learn something.

    Now there is all this wasted energy on the drama of posts....geesh, it is all so stupid. Interpretation is such an individual thing. The written word is always interpreted in so many ways that you really can't be so fuqing sure of anything.

    So, that is my thoughts and I'll continue my journal and stay out of open chat!!!

    Typically my policy to, though in any gathering of people, I suppose we have to expect drama.

    Looks like you have your meals in order, I did not notice a "slip" yesterday, did I miss it?

    What kind of routines are you doing?

    What are your short term and long term goals? (Other than sanity and sleep from the twins )

    If I missed this somewhere, sorry.

    BIG SLIP
    But new day - some nights it is really hard to get my meals in with the kids. That is why weekends are my biggest challenge.

    Goals
    12-week <18%bf (this should be cake as long as I avoid the cake KWIM)
    Actually use the alarm clock and get some morning workouts in.. (should be easier with daylight savings and summer)
    long-term - (toying with the idea of bb comp but just don't think that is my thing) stay healthy , maybe a triathalon, actually that galaxy comp looks interesting. Win a few sand tourneys and maybe visit Calif to compete in a few.

    I have a few more life-goals with education, spirituality and career stuff but that doesn't need to be shared here

    I'm doing HIIT 3 days a week and then 2day UBWO split and 2 day full LBWO with some cardio at the end of the non-HIIT days.

    Well I'll be damn. I've lost 1.5% bf in the last 3 weeks. So redoing my goals....

    16% I'm shooting for 16% in the next 11 1/2 weeks! I think I can totally do this. Amazing the momentum just seems to keep my body going no matter how bad I thought I was being with the food.

    Ok, no celebrations yet.... I have weeks to focus on so that I can reach a higher.....

    Keep it in context. Sometimes "slips" promote lipolysis as they can stimulate ones metabolism by increasing leptin levels.

    On the other hand, you can be perfect on your diet for weeks and the scale/calipers won't budge due to fallen leptin levels.

    Bottom line: cheat, right? Well, controlled cheating, or refeeding, is not such a bad idea, but the true bottom line is that you should have a game plan, and stick to it. If it is well planned, and well thought out, over time you will achieve all your goals.

    Oh, BTW, congrats on the loss!
