Couple of comments on the discussions at hand-- I have seen S'Mores Pure Protein bars at Publix and Target, as well as some kind of cinnamon/oatmeal flavor. The only one's I have tried is the peanut butter and they are amazing! I used them my 1st week on IP on alternatives. I will most definitely continue to eat the Pure Protein PB bars in maintenance.
Food dreams-- I am back full force into having food dreams. You all will be happy to know that the whole time I was on P3 and maintenance for my vacation, I did not have 1 food dream. But ever since I have been back on P1, they have been back in action. Sometimes they are super vivid and sometimes not. I had a crazy vivid dream revolving around subs / sandwiches. I woke literally thinking we had gotten subs for dinner that night.
On another note regarding dreams, I don't know if anyone else notices this, but my dreams in general are a lot more vivid and kind of crazy. I noticed when I was off plan, I slept very deep and woke up and didn't remember dreaming at all. Now that I am back on P1, I wake up and am like "that was crazy!"
I also add an extra protein on days I exercise. I usually drink a RTD chocolate immediately following exercise. It doesn't sound like I am doing nearly as much exercise as Wayward, but I do about 45-60 minutes 6x per week.
Regarding the restricted items, I have eaten a bar just about every single day on IP. I have done a couple days of boot camp here and there, but for the most part I have had a restricted every day. I also eat my bars in tiny bites to stretch them out
Other than that, things are just plugging along for me back in P1. I am glad to be back into my routine and everyday schedule. It feels good to be on the program and back in the gym. I am anxious to finish up with phase 1 and start phasing off for good. My 90% goal is 134#, which I am hoping that I can get to by Nov. 9 so I can be on P3 by Thanksgiving and in maintenance through Dec. and for Christmas.
Glad to hear of all the great WI's going on! Definitely helps to keep me motivated to finish this part of my journey up.
