Hi guys! Week 10! Also 10 weeks until I go to France!! :carrot:

Cammie, I don't know the answer to your question in the last thread. I'm not doing BFL per se.....I follow a nutrition plan by my trainer and just participate in the threads to keep on track. I would have a fruit w/ breakfast, though.

1/2 bagel, LC cheese, protein shake
greek yogurt, berries, walnuts
turkey sandwich on rye, salad with cc and a bit of italian dressing, olives
snack and dinner TBD
1 hr weights
post workout protein shake

Overslept and didn't weigh in....(at least that's the excuse I'm giving myself---couldn't have anything to do with the fact I ate the rest of DS's burrito last night)

1 oatmeal eggwhites
2 yogurt, bran, protein powder
3 romaine, lean ground beef, small baked potato
4 yogurt, bran, protein powder

HIIT 30 mins

POP. I'm pretty sure my arms are going to fall off. Good night!

03-31-2009, 09:36 AM
So, I'm back to trying to string together 3 POP days.

Last week I got to Wed afternoon!

protein pancakes
salmon, beans, veggies
turkey, plum
will try for that bedtime protein shake again!

Exercise? Try to run at lunch. I slept in (running partner home sick :( ) but I also did not have my typical Sunday-no-exercise-day this week so it won't kill me to have a rest day.

Midwife, it IS extremely difficult to string 3 POP days :faint: I get to thursday night then I start craving wine with Gray's Anatomy.... My goal this week is to make it though the WHOLE weekend...

So far meal 1 and 2 are the usual ...

03-31-2009, 01:26 PM
Dang it.....pizza and cake for lunch for a birthday. Do I choose that? Org salmon???? Salmon I think!

03-31-2009, 04:11 PM
Ok, I'm going to start posting my meals on this thread if you don't mind.

Oatmeal and eggs
protein shake (which now I know I need a carb with also)
chicken, peppers and whole wheat wrap
protein shake and grapefruit
chicken, salad and zuchinni
protein shake and grapefruit

Does this sound about right? I am not weighing for a while, I am afraid with the weight lifting I am doing I will be disappointed if I get on the scales. I think that I shall just use how my clothes fit as an indication of whether this is working or not? Has anyone else found that when they started, their weight went up at first?

03-31-2009, 06:37 PM
Cannie , sounds perfect to me...

1 egg, eggwhites, oatmeal
2 yogurt, bran, protein shake
3 tuna burger, romaine, shredded cabbage
4 cheese and gummy bears :nono: don't ask......
5 chicken and salad

03-31-2009, 07:11 PM
Your meal all look great! POP it is :)

Ilene, I have that same "Thursday problem" ;)

04-01-2009, 09:24 AM
Mel, I am embarassed to admit that the plan looked great, but the execution was miserable---picture an Olympic gymnast running to the pommel horse with perfect form and then totally biffing it and landing on her rump and the audience gasping in unison.

New month, new day, can still string 3 POP days together!

1/2 bagel, pnb, protein shake
cc, apple
turkey sandwich, bell pepper strips
salmon, plum
salad with grilled chicken
1 hr weights
post workout protein shake

04-01-2009, 05:15 PM

Yesterday was a POP day and so is today :woohoo: 2 days in a row ...

04-02-2009, 09:41 AM
Yesterday was POP although I switched out some equivalent foods.
Great job on 2 days in a row, Ilene!

3 mile run with some sprint intervals thrown in
2 eggs, ww english muffin, sf jam
hardboiled egg, apple
pbj, protein shake (unless I can come home at lunch, then I'll have fish)
ham, string cheese, orange
dinner? ground turkey, veggies

I really need to go to the store or I'll be out of luck tomorrow. Of course there are no off-plan foods either....the cupboards are bare...whice I don't understand cause I just spent a wad last week at the store! Where does it go?

So far a less than stellar week. I did keep the format of the BFLmeals, and I did get up to exercise each day, but I had 1 meal/snack too many on each day. I won't go into details, but chocolate icecream was involved.

Todays meals:
1.yoghurt etc.
2. half sandwich
3. soup & half roll
4. 3 crackers with toppings
5. pasta & ragu sauce, butter, parmesan
6. icecream

Iene, Mel, I have a similar wine problem on thursday - sunday. I fight the urge that I have earned because i survived so much of the working week. So far, I've been a good girl this week.

Exercise: Running is going better and better, I'm now up to 4 minutes at a time, at 7 - 8 km/hr. Also altough I am 15 pounds above the red line, I do feel muscles coming up below the fat layer. I want to be a hardbody old lady when I'm 60 in 10 years!

Have a great day all,

So, could it be those ever-present scavengers, er, um children? :rofl:

I want to be a hardbody old lady when I'm 60 in 10 years! I completely understand, I'll be there in 8 years, so I need the hardbody :yes: another reason I need that body is because I have let my natural hair colour come back and lo and behold it's on the grayish side, go figure!!

Today was a very good day:

1. the usual
2. yogurt, bran, cc
3. oatmeal pre run
33 minutes visited a friend 33 minutes back
4. salmon, veggies, ww bun post run
5. eggwhite and egg, post ubwo

04-02-2009, 11:22 PM

04-02-2009, 11:26 PM
ME TOO :woohoo: we're good :yes:

04-03-2009, 09:45 AM
You POP'd through Thursday night? Woohoo! Way to go! :bravo:

Go us!

3 mile run (done!)
oatmeal with protein powder, raisins, pumpkin spice, walnuts and a drizzle of sf syrup (I've been craving oatmeal raisin cookies----this was better!)
ground turkey, veggies
greek yogurt, berries, cereal
dinner? broiled shrimp, veggies, guac, in cabbage leaf "tacos"
try for that all elusive prebed protein shake

04-03-2009, 10:03 AM

3. 4. 5. dunno yet :shrug:

04-03-2009, 03:59 PM
I want to be a hardbody old lady when I'm 60 in 10 years!

A great goal Rabbit! :) I'm already there, plus some, and am not a hardbody, but better than I was at 50. I'm so happy that it's nearly spring, and that there's so much daylight now. It does make me want to get out and do more. Can't wait til the roads/bike paths are clear of snow and ice.

POP day 3!

And I volunteered at an ice cream social and passed on ice cream. Since I ran into 3 people from high school (2 of whom I hadn't seen since 1991), it was pretty easy to pass. It's nice to be at a normal weight when you see the former cheerleaders and beauty queens. They looked great, and so do I!

04-04-2009, 10:06 AM
