Happy Short Work Week, my Best Buddies:

I am feeling the effects of my CARBOLOOZA this weekend. I am up three pounds from the extra carbs consumed. It always amazes me how easily it happens - but mostly, I feel crappy when I eat too many carbs.

I much prefer to run my body on healthy fats and bodyfat. So, I know I will drop back down in a few days...at least, I hope so!

Current Goals: 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

Greetings my Best Buddies!

THANK-YOU to all who serve and have served our country!

We returned from our weekend. I did some light dumbbell arm work, and bicycled two times! I am grateful I didn't just sit around the whole time.

I also ate a few treats (aka carbs) - Oatmeal, French bread, Doritos, Dairy Queen, and wine...did I mention the wine?

Ekkk...hope my weight goes back down in the next 10 days!

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.

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!)
