I fly home late tomorrow night so I only have today and tomorrow to struggle with meals. I am so looking forward to having my kitchen back! 10 days on the road is difficult for the BFL lifestyle.

Yesterday - Free Day
Exercise: 4 mile run & 2 mile walk
1 - greek yogurt & 1/2 of a whole grain roll with 1/2 oz cheese
2 - crumpet topped with ricotta cheese and strawberry preserves
3 - croissant and a latte
4 - THAI FEAST!!! 'nuff said.

Today...
Exercise: upper body weights
1 - latte & 1/2 of a bran muffin (a *real* bran muffin, not a fatty muffin with a teaspoon of bran in it)
2 - 2/3 of a protein bar
3 - HUGE green salad topped with scoop of cottage cheese & 1 hardboiled egg
4 - ??
5 - ??
6 - ??

POP by the skin of my teeth. I even picked up and smelled the garlic bread. Put it down. Cleaned the kitchen. Packed up the garlic bread. Had some cottage cheese and berries in lieu of the late evening protein shake. I'm going to bed before my inner two year old possesses me.

Hi,

here 's my score for today:
yoghurt
cheese sandwich & soup
2 ryvita's with toppings
cake
rice wt beef & peas
cc+ cherries

and i did UBWO this morning.

I still have not lost an ounce in this challenge, I guess because I still eat too much. It is less than it was, I am more aware of my food choices, but it is still too much. On the up side: I have the impression i have much firmer muscles below the fat layer, and I feel muscles more often. I celebrated my 50th birthday yesterday, and some of my male colleagues were amazed that I was 50. Also, this might be a lame excuse, but I think your metabolism slows down around this age so that might also account for the problems loosing weight. I am up now again, since my trip, but I hope to loosse it again. Anyway, I think I'll be doing more BFL after this and I hope there are more people who would want to do this.

Ilene, I'm still hanging in here!

have a great day all,
Rabbit

Happy Belated Birthday, Rabbit! Is the cake gone yet?

I ran my 3 miles of sprint intervals at lunch and lifted for legs and shoulders (with some abs thrown in) last night. Had a small binge after work. Alas.

Today:
3 miles done!
kashi with skim, strawberries, protein shake
cc/berries/walnuts
pork chop, beans, broccoli
hardboiled egg whites, plum
dinner will be out to eat. Will plan to make good choices.

I was HUN-GRY yesterday. I ate on-plan except for a few sweet potato chips I munched on in the afternoon. And since I counted my "snack" of nuts and sweet potato chips as a meal, I ate SEVEN meals yesterday! I ususally struggle to eat six, but my stomach was growling all day so I tried to be an intuitive eater and eat when my body said to.

Exercise: Lower body & I tried a new ab routine
1 - Protein, fruit & flax shake
2 - latte and a 1/2 of a luna bar
3 - small sweet potato topped with cottage cheese
4 - nuts and sweet potato chips
5 - small container of greek yogurt
6 - soy chili & rice
7 - 1/2 of a protein shake

I know it's recommended you plan your food in advance, but I prefer to eat whatever sounds good at the time. When I'm not traveling, it's relatively easy for me to stay within the BFL guidelines because I enjoy the meals & rarely eat out. I don't know about you, but I've come to the realization that the food I make at home tastes better and is sooo much better for me than restaurant meals. Why would I eat out when I can make a more delicious meal at home for less $$ with a MUCH stronger nutritional profile? And I love trying to incorporate as many super foods as I can in my diet. Anyway, my point is that I am really starting to embrace these 6 meals as 6 opportunities throughout the day to eat something delicious and not as a chore.

Today
Exercise - Cardio (run)
1 - protein pancakes
2 - ?
3 - ?
4 - ?
5 - ?
6 - ?

Well, it does slow down, which means it takes more effort to lose weight, and the loss is slower, but I manage to lose 65+ lbs (about 30Kg) at age 54/55. (Of course, I also managed to gain too much of it back, and am working on the loss part again. )

This is my DH's perspective too, Genesis. I do prefer my cooking/foods at home to many restaurant choices, and when I do out, I try to have things I won't/can't make a home - like sushi.

I haven't lost either, but I'm not sure I can see any scale change. My bf% is pretty low already. If I made some extreme changes I could probably drop it more, but I'm pretty happy with my food and exercise right now. I need to get a handle on my occasional sweet tooth binges, but even those, whether I do or don't, the scale stays in the same range.

Today:
kashi w/skim, protein shake
cc/berries/walnuts
turkey sandwich, broccoli
bell pepper strips, laughing cow, salmon
dinner: probably grilled turkey burger and broccoli
1 hr weights
postworkout protein shake

I might run this afternoon, probably not though. I'm tired. And I like to run 4-5 times a week, not 6-7.
