hi-
can't believe it's almost June!!! Time is FLYING!!!

Tonight's RM: salad with blue cheese, roast chicken breast, brussel sprouts, cole slaw, 1/2 pita bread (it was a large one), 1/2 slice of pineapple, water.

Tomorrow I'm making chili with lots of roasted veggies we had on Sunday- eggplant, squash, peppers and mushrooms. I have grass fed beef and organic black beans, as well as chipotle salsa. It will be good.

Breakfast tomorrow will be the leftover chicken and Brussels from tonight. Lunch will be a beef hot dog with no bun, sourkraut and club soda.

later-

hello!

We have had dinner out the last 3 nights- I managed a good RM except for Saturday. That night we were at friends, and there were no veggies or greens or a salad. Oh well.

Tonight we're having salad, eggplant parm, chicken sausage, pasta for DH (I will have 1-2 ravioli), and for me my carb will be 1/2 bagel. Water to drink.

That's as far as I have gotten for the week's meals. I am going to try eating our of the freezer for a bit, as we are gong to be away for a long visit to DD.

Waving hi. I did do great with all our travels last month (3 trips, came to approximately 6 thousand miles of in the car travel). Despite lots of stress re fil and other things.
Then we came home in time for Memorial Day - did good. But dh got really sick. Two Urgent Care trips, no sleep for approximately 4 days..it got gnarly, and I fell off.

Have had good moments, some good decisions. Will be completely back on in next day or two. For now, one meal decision at a time.

Hi

Patricia- that sounded hard going. Hope your DH is on the mend now.
I always fall off if i'm lacking sleep or low in energy as well.
Hope things are on an even keel for you now!

I've been having a nut & seed energy ball instead of eggs for breakfast for a long time now.
I could no longer face eggs or a substantial breakfast of any kind really so was having no breakfast at all; just coffee which was making me feel sick to the stomach. So this nut & seed energy ball is around 4.7g Carbs; [The ingredients used would not all be 'on plan' but they seem to suit me OK!]

I learned something new recently which was that it can be hard for our bodies to build muscle when we're actually losing weight.
Apparently, fitness people go through something called "bulking/cutting" phases all the time; bulking- meaning they eat more carbs and strength build, and cutting meaning they 'lean out' and lose weight.
So next time i do fall off the wagon,-weight loss wise- i'm going to take advantage of it and do more strength building exercises in order to build more muscle.
This will mean i'd be in a better shape overall & it will lessen the likelihood of feeling gaunt and bony when i do achieve a lower weight.
[I know it sounds ridiculous but this aspect really puts me off losing weight - i can't stand that bony feeling]

I'm all for having a plan b, c and probably D too!

Maryh, I hated how boney I got when I was in the 150 (at my lowest), and won't let myself get that thin again.

No way! Interesting thought re the bulking/cutting. I want nice rounded muscles!

hi-
I was really uncomfortable when I first lost all my weight too- bones pocking out where I had none before- somehow it all worked out and it redistributed over time, I think.
RM tonight is going to be Vietnamese - all tofu and veggies tonight, with water to drink.
Tomorrow's planned RM will be a burger, ear of fresh corn, slaw, peppers, green salad and water.

later!

I'm glad to hear you find things got more comfortable for you and that things redistributed over time Eno.

I found a type of strengthening exercise that aims for a more elongated look, not bulky. I tried them once and oh my gosh; you seriously feel it even though they look very easy to do.

From what I've discovered doing too much cardio + too low calories= a very gaunt weight loss- that looks like it doesn't suit people.
Runners can sometimes end up looking very gaunt.
Whereas; Moderate Cardio + strength training exercise + moderate calorie deficit= The healthiest looking result.

hi-
thanks for the link to the workouts. They look great. Right now I mainly walk, and do the rowing machine for 30 minutes once a week.This looks doable for me. I love Pilates but it's really pricey.

Going out with DH tonight to a new place he wants to try. We'll see. Then on Saturday night too- but I picked a place and will get a salad and a bbq beef sandwich.

I am sticking with walking and my recumbent exercise bike

On day 4 of getting back in the groove. Despite feeling incredibly grumpy, it is going well.

I have made over a week fairly back on plan (meaning need rm tighter).

Got sick last night, which was a darn shame. Had made a wonderful garlic roast beef (rather fussy, 3 different uses of garlic and steps such as pan roasting the garlic, making a garlic oil and a garlic paste), with plans for a homemade sub with roasted red peppers. Had the bread and meat and nothing else...went to bed way early.

Today is leftover roast beef tonight, will actually have veggies and salad this time

hi-
just want to let all the CAD/CALP posters know that I'm heading out to visit my grandkids for a month. I can't post when I'm there- I will catch you when I'm back.
While there it will be my 14th anniversary on CALP!!!
