Greetings my Fabulous Followers,

Seems like I was missing in action this weekend - I was having fun! We had a special belated birthday lobster dinner on Friday, went to the pottery shop again on Saturday, and then went on a Segway tour today - it was with my husband and our friends. Her son is a Segway guide as his summer job!

I ate too much so thank goodness I went to the gym Friday, Saturday and Sunday to try to balance it!

Happy Tuesday, my Fabulous Followers:

Last Saturday's Experiment was a fail. Today's weigh-in at the gym was UP one pound. It amazes me how well I KNOW my OWN body. If I increase the calories with carbs (ostensibly for energy), I will hold water and gain on the Idiot Box.

I understand the numbers, and the impact of long term diets on the metabolic system... but,I will hold water and gain on the Idiot Box.

I will lose slowly following my own plan - but I will lose. Under 1300 calories a day, about one gallon of water a day, and carbs 15% and under.

Paleo/Keto is what works. Never question yourself. You KNOW your OWN body.

Happy Sunday, my Fabulous Followers!

So the experimentation continues based on my trainer's feedback...yesterday I purposely ate 400 extra calories and a high percentage of carbs to see what would happen at the gym this morning!

I had a ton of energy for rowing and the elliptical, and lifted heavier weight throughout the floor intervals...of course this is not a surprise!

I cannot lose fat, however, if I eat high calorie/carb every day. The Idiot Box was up this morning...

Happy Weekend, my Fabulous Followers!

I hope everyone has a great weekend planned. I did five days at Orange Theory Fitness this week - four of them in a row which is not my usual. Typically, I do three in a row during the week.

My carbs are around 15% right now as I am allowing a few more veggies and a little fruit - it seems as long as I keep my calories down, protein moderate and healthy fats up, I am doing OK with very slow losses.

I feel desperate to drop the weight I gained when I had my foot surgery...it depresses me sometimes because I was at goal and even a little under it last year.

Happy Tuesday, my Fabulous Followers!

Weigh-in at the gym for the Weight Loss Challenge? DOWN one more pound...still averaging one pound per week. Sounds good BUT it is so FREAKIN' hard to lose that one pound. Happy it is DOWN and not UP...

I had a productive workout this morning and pushed myself to use heavier weights whenever possible. My goal is to lose real fat while keeping the muscle so I hope my slow loss will result in lean gains.

Trainer will do bodyfat% again on September 8th! My carb macro is a little higher (15%) than I prefer; but it is veggies and a small amount of summer melon. There will be corn on the cob one time before summer ends, too. Then back to the rigid nutrition plan...and trying to stay under 10% carbs most days.
