Sorry I'm late starting the thread, BFLLs! Food yesterday was pretty bad but I did have an awesome chest/shoulder workout.
3 mile run done!
kashi, skim, strawberries, protein shake
low carb yogurt, grapes
turkey, avocado, bell pepper strips
dinner: making corned beef, cabbage, potatoes. I'll substitute ye olde Irish tilapia for the corned beef probably.

Of course, horse! Welcome!
Well, I did have corned beef and that, plus several other indiscretions over the early part of the week put my weight at 158.5!!! Eeekk!!! My red line is 156. I tend to hang out at 152. I pretty much almost had a heart attack this morning.
I can see how people are tempted to undereat to make up for stuff, but I am not going down that path. That will lead to hungry, bad decisions, restrictions, hungry, bad decisions, and that is not where this chickie is going!
1/2 bagel, laughing cow, protein shake
cc, blueberries, walnuts
turkey sandwich, avocado, apple
red bell pepper strips, laughing cow (or avocado), turkey slices
dinner: tilapia, asparagus, english muffin
1 hr gym
postworkout protein shake
LOTS of water! And I will take my running stuff in case I can get away at lunch, but I'm not holding my breath.
Also, I am congested and I think I am coming down with a cold. I wonder how much mucus weighs? Blah!

midwife, I hope you feel better soon. Colds are no fun!
I'm on the road for 10 days for work so eating has been challenging.
1 - 1/2 of a Genisoy bar & a latte
2 - Veggie wrap with grilled tofu & veggies in a spinach tortilla, side of mixed greens
3 - latte
4 - "Protein Plate" - 1 hardboiled egg, 1 tiny whole wheat bagel, 2 apple slices, 5 grapes, small slice of cheese, and tablespoon peanutbutter
No meals 5 & 6 for me today. Oh well! But my veggie wrap was very substantial.

I've lost YES... 10 lbs or so 5 weeks into my BFL challenge. I'm thrilled. I regained weight I'd lost before during a stressful time in my life so I wanted to find a "serious" challenge to get it off and this is IT. I love BFL, the workouts, plans everything about the program. Hoping to lose another 10-15 before I'm done, by the end of May.
I've been doing mostly smoothies for breakfast, then my "gross" salmon/spinich/v8 juice shake as an am snack, then turkey, tuna, burgers or chicken and veggies for lunch and dinner. I've gone just a bit on the low carb side eating half of buns, etc but have included lots of brown rice and some potatoes (which I love) per the plan. Found that the sugary bars don't agree with me, so I'll have the protein shakes, mix another smoothie or will have turkey/cheese, or celery/hummus for snacks. I can't seem to quite get to the 6x meals per day, but 5x seems to be working for me.
Thanks for letting me join in here...

I'm resuming BFL tomorrow...
I am still very much jet lagged. Also it's my 50th birthday!!!
I took the day off work and I'm going grocery shopping to restock on my usual food items.
I had a great time in california, but I'm very glad to be back home.
Have a great day all,
