Happy mid-week, my Best Buddies!

My last journal entry brewed some great comments about personal choices and those who question people's nutrition plans. Thanks to all my supporters - you all rock!

So, a little history - I have been on FatSecret for FIVE years, and have maintained a loss of 75 pounds. I have read many books, been on websites, followed my FS Buddies and their plans, work with a trainer, do HIIT and lift heavy (for me) weights four or five days a week. My main goal is to lose bodyfat - not scale numbers.

And, I am a 62 year old woman, and I have thyroid issues. WHY the heck do people consistently try to argue my personal choices? It makes me laugh.

If I want to to eat LCHF, it is my business. And, it works when I am not in a slump as I have been recently. I just set up a bodyfat analysis date with my trainer in a few weeks so that usually motivates me to change.

PHOTOS are BEFORE and NOW. So, LCHF works for me. So, maybe stop judging!

Happy Monday, my Best Buddies:

I feel repetitive - exercise great, nutrition adequate. This week I want to get myself back on track which means getting low carb and increasing the fats so I stop craving crap.

I need a kick in the A$$.

Happy New Week, my Best Buddies!

Yesterday I completed my Orange Theory Fitness workout that was a 90 minute class! Usually classes are about 60 minutes. I was whipped after with the extra weight work, TRX straps and cardio. I want to get in the extended class every Sunday but there is always a "waitlist" to get in to it!

My nutrition has been erratic and carb-laden...not good for me, and not my usual behavior. Something emotional is going on but not sure what yet. My husband says I appear depressed. I have a lot going on, I guess.

Let's make April better than March!

Happy Almost Weekend, my Best Buddies!

I am working to get myself better on track this week. Two weekends ago when I was doing the intensive assistant training, I think I got exhausted and off my program...sometimes once that happens, it opens the flood gates to carb cravings!

And, I believe I have not managed stress well this week -- my niece started a chemo regimen this week. Her cancer is rare but very very treatable and will be a lifelong chronic type of leukemia that will require monitoring. Still, an awful situation as we know the chemo is hard on people.

NO EXCUSES for me though...MUST.TREASURE.MY.HEALTH

Happy New Week, my Best Buddies!

I have been poor at my nutrition plan for over one week now...too many carbs always cause bloat and gain for me. Exercise has been consistent, but you cannot out exercise poor nutrition!

SO, this week's goal is to get my macros back in line! 60%-70% fat, 20-30% protein, 10% carbs or less. And, to push heavier weights at the gym. As my buddy JimmiePop says: #GrindTime

Let's make April better than March!
