MOVING MY JOURNAL. STARTING WITH YESTERDAY. I'LL ATTACH THE PICS IN A BIT. I LIKE IT HERE.......

03/14/02
No workout this morning. It is my day off. I was at the gym Fri, Sat., Sun., Mon, Tues., and Wednesday. I needed a day off to rest.
7:30 -- Oatmeal with 1 tblsp. of honey and 1 tblsp. of protein powder and black coffee.
9:45 -- apple and water
11:20 -- 4 hydroxycut before lunch. Lunch was turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread and mustard only with water
1:30 -- rice cake with pb on it (get off of my rice cake PB...lol) and water.
3:30 -- pear and more water. I'm really trying to incorporate at least two pieces of fruit in my diet everyday.
7:30 -- black beans, rice and grilled chicken with hot sauce wrapped in tortilla and drank water.
Pretty good dinner I think.

I haven't seen them. :)

I don't know how you and Sosunni can get up so early to go to the gym. When it comes time for me to cut I am going to have to figure out something because I don't want to get up that early. :cry:

Can't wait to see the next pics. :D

Did very well this weekend. Saturday I got up, took my supps and went to the gym. ALL CARDIO. Felt so good too because my legs are still sore from the other day.
Came home, made 4 egg whites and 1 whole egg with 1 piece of plain wheat toast.

Ate really well the rest of the day. Had fruits and a turkey sandwich for lunch with water. Had some yogurt and then last night the kids wanted burgers, so we got them burgers and I made grilled chicken and broccoli at home for me.

I'm really proud of myself for eating the way I have. I feel a lot better about where I'm going and how I'm getting there....FINALLY!!!

No gym on Sunday, but my diet is just as good.
Back to the gym on Monday.

Thanks a bunch SG. How are you lately by the way?

4:45 -- woke, took supps, got dressed and went to the gym
Stretching first
Shoulders day
30 minutes cardio
Abs (3 sets each -- crunch, rev. crunch, hanging leg raises, hip thrusts)

7:30 -- oatmeal with tsp of honey and one scoop of Isopure and black coffee
10:00 -- 1 cup of rice pudding that I made yesterday and water
11:45 -- about 1 1/2 cups of broccoli and a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread. Turkey and bread only, no mustard or anything. Not that I didn't want it, but I forgot to put it on at home last night when I packed my lunch...hehehe. And had water to drink.
2:00 -- Luna Bar and water
3:45 -- rice cake w/ pb and more water
7:30 -- grilled chicken and grilled beef fajitas in corn tortillas. No cheese, no guac, no sour cream....no nothing except a little hot sauce.

All of you from the other side remember when I said this girl at my gym (friend) and I had waged war with each other??? WELL.....I'm doing much better than she is. Her diet is total shit!! She's drinking and having brownies and pizza and burgers. I'm sticking to my diet and I think and feel like I've already made progress. My clothes are already fitting better and that's the tell tale sign, right??

More later.....

Hey B -- I take Hydroxycut and use the RTD's. I really like it and I think since I've become really serious with my diet and I've increased my cardio, I'm actually....finally....getting some results. We'll see in about another 4 weeks. That's when I'm off of the MuscleTech Challenge. I can go longer if I want, but 8 weeks is the minimum.

ON TO TODAY!!!
4:45 -- woke and took my Hydroxycut, got dressed and went to the gym.
Today was back day and I did 30 minutes cardio and two sets of ham curls with a dumbbell.

7:45 -- oatmeal with one tsp. of honey and a scoop of protein powder in it with black coffee.
9:45 -- 1/2 cup of leftover rice pudding and water.
11:30 -- 4 Hydroxycut with water
12:00 -- black beans, rice, grilled chicken wrapped in a tortilla.
I actually only ended up eating about 3/4 of it, I was driving back from doing something for work and I found it really hard to eat in the car....but I managed to suck down that much of it.
3:30 -- rice cake with pb on it and water (2 bottles to be exact.)
7:30 -- grilled some very lean steak on my George Foreman grill and some new potatoes too. Also had green beans with that and one glass of red wine and water, water, water.

How do you like the hydroxycut? ~ Of course it's gonna be different from the Canadian brand (that i have tried) do you find it effective?
I didn't mind it when i had it... but just recently started mixing my own formula :) It's saves a bit of cash...

I like the Hydroxycut. In the beginning it gave me the jitters, but I recall that that ceased after about a week or so.

I really like it and it is very effective. I've tried other fat burners too and some worked, some didn't. I like the Hydroxycut better than anything I've taken.

How does the Canadian brand differ?

Get Shredded!

Today is my day off -- no gym. I wanted to take a day of rest because I start with my trainer tomorrow. I went ahead and stayed with this trainer because he is leaving at the end of the month and I'll have to start with a different trainer. Also decided to stay with him because he isn't charging me. Since he is leaving me after already making a committment to me, he is going to go ahead and give me two sessions free and he's going to look through my logs and tell me if he can find anything.

7:45 -- oatmeal with one scoop of protein powder and one tsp. of honey and black coffee.
10:30 -- Luna Bar and water
12:00 -- 4 Hydroxycut with water
12:15 -- turkey carver sandwich from Boston Market with reg. mustard, lettuce and tomato....NO cheese. I also got a side of steamed veggies to go along with this. Had another two 9 oz. bottles of water.
3:30 -- rice cake with pb and more water
7:00 -- grilled some fish with lemon and garlic on it, grilled zucchini and squash and had one slice of a baguette. Oh, the fish was incredible!!!!


More later. Hope everyone is doing great today.

Hey girlie!! Thats a good idea to stay with that trainer..especially since he's not charging you!! I think your food is looking really good. Looks like you have lowered your carbs at breakfast time too! I hope you have a great day off sweetie!! I am hitting the gym again finally after being out of it since the day before my wedding!! (But I have been walking a lot--just haven't lifted weights in a week and a half) ANYWAYS~ have a wonderful day!

Thanks Stacey.....I hope changing my foods will allow me to make some extra progress. I think it has already. I'm trying really hard to get more protein, veggies and fruits. I still have my oatmeal in the mornings, but I'm adding protein powder to it now.

I take my 4 week pics on Saturday and I'll have those up as soon as they are sent to me from my friend.

I can't wait until tomorrow to see what my trainer tells me. I'm really excited about the fact that he isn't charging me either and he's going to take a look at my log too.....but I need to keep that on the down low....ya know? LOL

I'll let everyone know how it goes tomorrow morning.

stacey....did you return my email from the other day???? I tell ya, I've lost some time since then. I don't remember anything. LOL

Hey you know what? I'm using Isopure by Perfect to add to my oatmeal. It dissolves so easily and it doesn't have a funky taste. I buy the vanilla flavor....my husband makes shakes with it and he really likes it.

The only thing my email was about was asking what your new last name is and how the honeymoon went....but then I said, nevermind, if your honeymoon was anything like mine and my anniversary trip, then you never left the room except to eat!! LOL

Later babes

Hey peeps -- today was good. I got to spend some time with my trainer this morning....actually about an hour. We went through some exercises that he wants me to do (within the program) for 6 weeks. We took my bf level and mostly did a lot of talking. I did learn some extra stuff though just in that short time.

He didn't get to the gym until 5:30 -- I was there at 5 and I thought that was our time, but apparently I was wrong. It's okay though because I was able to do some stretching and actually do about 15 minutes on the treadmill.

He wrote some stuff down for me to do and I'm going to keep that log as well. I forgot to take my log home last night so he wasn't able to look at it this morning. But I did tell him what my training and diet was looking like and he thinks I'm well on my way, I just need to "advance it" a little bit.

7:45 -- oatmeal with one scoop of protein powder and black coffee.
10:00 -- EAS Advantage Shake
12:00 -- grilled turkey burger (mustard, lettuce and tomato only) and I had a Sobe Lean beverage to drink.
AAHH -- I forgot to eat earlier and now it's 4:00 and I was pretty much jonesin' because I thought I didn't have any food. But then I opened up my desk drawer to get something out and lookey there, lookey there -- a ready mix, fat free tuna snack pack. YIPPEEEE!!!
7:30 -- OMG, I have to tell you about my dinner --
I stopped at the store on my way home and got some round steak and some shrimp. I cut the steak into little cubes and seasoned them and grilled them on my GF grill of course. While I was doing that, I soaked the shrimp in some Sauza tequila and lemon pepper season and then grilled it when the steak was done. When those were done, I grilled 4 pineapple rings and put the steak and shrimp on that in a little presentation and made some long grain and wild rice to go with it.....OHHH...YUMMY!!:lick:
About 9 I had a jello before I went to bed at 10:30.

Um, yes...I'll have the two grilled chicken sandwiches with mustard and extra lettuce and tomatoes please.
(see, if I go out to a fast food place at lunch that's what I always get. I eat one whole one and only the chicken and veggies from the second one.)

My trainer did make a few little changes for me and I will see how it works. I think changing my diet and getting a little extra cardio has helped tremendously already.....
We'll see what happens over the next six weeks. Thanks again girly and yes I did get email from you and I replied, but it came back that it couldn't be delivered to your hotmail acct.

I think the pics are beautiful...you look so wonderful sweet pea!!
