I only did 30 minutes on the treadmill with intervals between walking and running. It was probably total 15 minutes running. will say, running with less weight on my body felt so much better and effortless than it did at 200+. I lost most of my weight in P1 with no exercise, but am now training for a 5k and also trying to get my DH and me in the mindset to workout when we go on maintenance.

Any personal patterns with adding working out in would be helpful. Thank you in advance!
Pretty much guaranteed you will always see a gain when you start a new exercise routine. I run with a lot of folks who do endurance runs, and they ALWAYS gain when they ramp up their mileage. You would think the opposite after doing a 20-25 mile run (some do 50-60 miles/week during big run training), a big group just finished an ultra-marathon this weekend (31-miles) and several girls were happy to be done so they would lose the weight that they gained during training and "lose the bloat".

3FC rules, this forum rocks, and its going to be a fabulous day.
Omg, I looooooooved my spinach latte in P1, and even all through maintenance...sadly I developed a food aversion to spinach right now in my pregnancy (along with other very healthy foods!), but working with what I can swallow (literally).

I would think that roasting would retain most of the nutritional value since you are essentially just evaporating the water. Although some cooking methods can affect, I wouldn't worry and enjoy your crunches!
