I'm 35 years old, have been active all my life, but have always had an issue with my weight. I seem to gain about 30 pounds every winter, and then spend the spring and summer trying to take the pounds off. This time its going to be different! I recently got married in August 2007 (to Cheeks), and we are both supportive of each other in every aspect of our lives. Since we joined FatSecret in March 2008, I have already hit my halfway mark with 30 pounds lost!

Summer B.E.A.C.H. Challenge!
Team Blue Lagoonie Loonies

Checking in for the past two days of crazy work/school schedules! I have an all day class today and won't be able to pack my lunch so we'll see how i do eating wise.

For the tally points:
Wednesday - 4 pts (exercise day off, but ate within my points and did a lot of heavy lifting at work)
Thursday - 5+ pts! ( i ran 1 mile in the rain to the gym - did 1/2 hour of core and body strengthening, then ran 2.5 miles back in torrential downpours! and ate within my points)

Sounds like we're all kicking some butt! Keep it up everybody!

Summer B.E.A.C.H. Challenge!
I'll give myself a 5 for today! I woke up at 5:00, and got out of bed at 5:15 and jogged 1 mile to the gym, did some strength training, and jogged 1.5 miles back...for a 45 minute workout. I ran yesterday too and walked 9 holes of golf - another 5!.

I'd like to add to my B.E.A.C.H - I need to stay within my points which is always hard for me when i start adding strength training and amped up cardio to my workouts...but i resolve to do so! The next two weeks is going to be really tough as i am taking an condensed grad school class for my mba...and will be super busy with my regular job

I like Blue Lagoonie Loonies alsoLaughing

i'm in!

Banned Excuse: Too tired to get out of bed in the morning and into the gym.

Changed Habit: Going to force myself to get up a 1/2 hour earlier to get to the gym and do weight training for 20-30 minutes, 3 times a week

Eat To Live, Dr. Joel Furhman
Yup i did a modified Eat to live b/c i never did read that book of his. I read a book he wrote on fasting...then adapted my meals based on that. I ate 1 lb cooked green veggies, 1 lb of raw green veggies, a lot of broccoli, 2 c. brown rice, 2 c. steel cut oatmeal, 1 white potato no dairy, no eggs, no meat PER day. Plus 2 oranges, grapes, and sunflower seeds. THe diet was great - i had been going through some problems with my stomache and the diet really fixed them. It was extrememly hard to follow the first week or so, but got easier aas the weeks went by - i cut out all salt, sugar, spices etc...used lemon as flavoring for the veggies

It was really hard preparing all of that food ...which is why i eventually broke it...too much time spent cooking, washing veggies etc..

It was however, worth it! I felt great in a few weeks...saw really good was next to impossible to go out with friend to eat and/or drink (no drinking). Good Luck!
