Kukkie I hope your headache goes away. I remember you use to have them before and I remember coffee helped you. Do you have time to get a coffee this morning? Good job on the .4 down I can't wait until you get to the 180's

You're right Rennie. I hadn't had my coffee yet when I posted. I've had one now, and feel a bit better. But it's also raining here all day today and I don't know if you remember, but I'm also sensitive to atmospheric pressure, so could be a combination of the two. Hubby is working late today, so no gym, but I do have my shoes now, so I'm starting tomorrow!

I had a friend that was very similar. When it rained, her knees ached. She was very sensitive to atmospheric pressure as well. That's very interesting to me.

Today's exercise was great! I jogged my 2.4 miles, came home and did my plank challenge (Day 2 = 20 seconds) and did some light weights. I think I might start a pushup challenge. I can't do plank pushups and would love to be able to do them one day.

Now time for food

Kukkie Glad you got your coffee will ibuprofen help with the rest of the pressure just a little? I don't get headaches often but when I do I feel so bad for those that have them often, you take care my friend

Feeling refreshed today! Stayed on plan yesterday and doing good today too! Plan on going jogging tonight. Took last night off to recover since the thighs were burning.

Kukkie, I get headaches and feel blah too until I have my coffee. Crazy how the body refuses to wake up until we have had or cup!

Rennie, congrats, so close to 160!!! My speed is slow...since I'm short and chiunky, I jog between 3.5 and 4.5. LOL

ushotmedown, congrats on another 2 pounds!! wow!!

Olivia, nice job on the workout!

Thanks akelly I am certainly gonna try to do a little something today. I need to do this for me. I know I can do it, I just have to put forth more effort. When I first started walking I could barely walk 10-15 minutes. My knees hurt and I wasn't even going that fast and would be so winded it was like someone was chasing me. I'm gonna try.

Rennie, I completely missed the last part of your question, sorry lol. No, I don't put protein in my smoothies. I used to but I've been cutting out excess protein because, for me, too much protein slows my system down and I don't get great energy levels like I do with fruits/vegetables. I limit protein (with the exception of protein naturally found in fruits and vegetables) to 3 times per week. This works well for me

Olivia I have probably asked before but old brain here doesn't remember. Could you post your meals for a day or two. I like to see what others are eating

April
16. 223.4 - 1,827 cals with 116 grams protein - conditioning day - 2 hours
17. 222.8 - 2,294 cals with 127 grams protein - deadlifts
18. 222.4 - 1,984 cals with 186 grams protein - bench press (with chains! so much fun)
19. 221.8 - 3,085 cals with 177 grams protein - rest day. lost my ever loving mind.
20. 223.2 - calories not being counted, but i am being mindful.
21. 223.6 - 2063 cals with 96 grams protein. SQUAT day!! 13 training days until my very first powerlifting meet.
22. 223.4 - 2,321 cals with 106 grams protein. benching, but cut short. not a full training day. bleh.
23. 222.8 - 2111 calories with 59 grams protein - conditioning day. (my least favorite training day!)
24. DNW - 2749 calories with 166 grams protein - deadlift day. also super depressed and my calorie intake reflected that.
25. 223.6 - 2185 calories with 160 grams protein - bench press and squat.
26. DNW - 1,983 calories - 93 grams protein - rest day
27. DNW - 2,483 calories - 108 grams protein - rest day
28. 224.8 - 2,135 calories - 184 grams protein - squat and bench. set a squat PR!
29. 223.6 - 2,714 calories - 159 grams protein - bench press. set a bench PR!

so, training is going great. this training cycle is ending with PR's and high confidence going into the meet in 12 days. but my god. the food is so inconsistent.

really trying to keep the protein UP. when my protein intake is down, my strength soon follows suit.

so, it looks like my maintenance is 2200 calories. not great. i wish it were higher, so i could eat more.

i am going to keep my current goal at 2200 calories and then drop it to 1900 after the meet. no way am i going to shave calories down right before a meet. i am way to greedy for strength. i would like to break the national deadlift record in my federation.

Rennie - yes, because of the nature of my food plans, some days calories are higher than others. I'd say Wednesdays and Saturdays are my highest calorie days (since I eat bread/dairy/starch only on those days). My paleo days would probably be next in line. My lowest cal days are most definitely the juicing day. The raw foods day is a lot of bulk, but the calories are mid level. I eat a lot of fat on pretty much all days, so my calories don't suffer too much. But in a sense, yes they cycle high/low It's been working like a charm

Thanks Olivia, that's what I'm trying now, so far so good. I hope it continues to work and I don't get bored or discouraged like I always do
