Happy Tuesday, my Best Buddies:

Thank you all for the encouragement. I looked back at the big picture of the last 90 days and see I am slowly bringing the calories down and macros in line for LCHF. January was better than December, and February was better than January. All I can hope for is to make March better than February, right?

My nutrition plan is a ball of confusion - I know too many calories or carbs will not work for me - but then it is where do I balance enough nutrition to support my workout goals while losing fat? Always a delicate balance...as I said yesterday, one big cluster eff right now!

Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle - Tom Venuto

Short Range Goals:
* Macros 60%-70% fat, 20-30% protein, 10-15% carbs - better under 10%!
* Back in the "Blue" on Idiot Boxes while retaining muscle - June?
* Schedule a bodyfat % reading with trainer for May?
* Drink at least 12 - 14 cups of fresh water daily - especially on gym days
* Continue HIIT mixed in with weight lifting four to five days
* Keep up the training notebook to achieve progressive overload

Long Range Goals: 2017
*Bodyfat at 20% (Current 24.5%) by year end 2017
*Maintain Idiot Boxes around 152-158lbs staying under goal weight
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility during workouts

Happy New Week, my Best Buddies:

I am still quite frustrated this morning, in fact down right irritable. We saw a play yesterday and stopped for coffee after - I had the "eff-its" and shared a cupcake with my husband. I logged it, too. I am now above my posted weight but just cannot make myself log another gain! Need to see it move down in weight or BF%! I have been under my goal weight before - I know it can happen!

Most of my bodybuilding books discuss BMR and how not to eat less that BMR, and to imcrease protein percentages, and carb needs, blah, blah, blah. I have thyroid and am approaching 62 years of age - I think I have to cut below my BMR. I have done higher protein in the past and gained...and, I think about CICO that should be working for me now...but no, not happening!

Today it feels like a cluster eff - but I persevere and will NEVER.GIVE.UP!

Greetings, my Best Buddies!

O.M.G - the Idiot Box is absolutely the same! How the hell is this even possible? I believe I am eating in a caloric deficit, drinking my water and exercising well. Can you say FRUSTRATED?

Fathead recipe includes lots of dairy which may just blow me up - I hardly ever eat dairy except for Kerrygold butter in my BPC. #FeelingFat

Happy Weekend, my Best Buddies:

They predicted snow here in the North Country - and not one single flake!
Yay...

I completed four workouts this week, and five last week. I decided to do two rest days in a row...it will be interesting because I usually get "antsy" on the second rest day, but I know my muscles need to recoup and release some of the water they are holding.

I am thinking of lifting my dairy ban and making some fathead pizza crust which includes cheese and cream cheese. Any suggestions for proper preparation? I see the recipe online and people here like it!

ADDENDUM: Made a FATHEAD pizza and filled up on two small pieces and my husband ate the rest! YUMOLICIOUS and easy!
