Greetings, my Best Buddies:

I hope everyone is doing well. I am working very hard to try to meet my June 10 weigh-in goal, and reducing my waist circumference!

Deadlift two 40lb dumbbells (80lbs), pyramid reps, 8 sets

I already am planning my food for the Holiday weekend. We will go to our friend's cabin on a lake in northern Minnesota - a truly gorgeous area . I will bring everything for my Bulletproof Coffee, and my lunch egg wraps. I will have grilled meat, fish and chicken for the two evening meals. Hopefully, not too many treats...my friend's wife is health conscious so we do well together.

Current Goals: May to June 10th & Aug 1st
*Idiot boxes consistently weigh 162.4 by June 10th
*Bodyfat at 25% or less by August 1 (last reading 25.56%)
*Macros average: 65%-70% fat, 23-26% protein, 8%/9% or less carbs
*NET carbs less than 20 grams daily
*Lift heavier at gym – achieve new PR for weight or reps by August 1
*Continue HIIT during cardio work
*Complete four-week abdominal challenge at the gym – lose at least one inch: 32"-33”
*Wear the “red pants” comfortably by July 4

Long Range Goals: 2016

*Bodyfat at 24% or less
*Maintain Idiot Box around 150-158lbs staying under goal weight for a while
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility

Happy Day, my best Buddies,

I decided to log a conservative loss for the week. Sumo squat 50lb weight today, too.

And, here is a bowl of my favorite thing:

Happy Saturday, my Best Buddies!

To log, or not to log? That is the question!

The average of my two Idiot Boxes over the past four days is 161.2 - yikes - is it real? I am not sure if four days is consistent enough for me to log it - I usually wait a week to 10 days to call it consistent.

What do you think?

I will lower the June 10th goal a bit and see what happens by then!

I also decided to go biking today with my husband - we are not distance riders, but it is a fun way to get in an extra day of burning a few calories. (Yay! We biked for an hour and had a lovely ride!)

Happy Almost Weekend, Best Buddies:

I had a good day at the gym this morning - squat swing a 40lb weight, 20 reps, 4 sets. Also shoulder press two 25lb weights, 10 reps, 3 sets - all as part of sprint rowing 3000 meters total plus lots of other core work in class. I am really trying to hit some of my current goals early - before my surgery June 13! And, the Idiot Boxes have been revolving around 161,162,163 the last three days so drinking one gallon of water daily is helping out, too.

Greetings Best Buddies,

I averaged my Idiot Boxes for the last 7 days and decided to log a loss. Since I raised my RDI by 50 calories last week, I am closely following as I wanted to increase my fat and protein just a bit without gaining. HEY, I finally got the BLUE Line!

I also just modified my "Current Goals" since I will have surgery in June.
