    Try the Garlic and Herb or Original with some mashed cauliflower for a nice mashed potato substitute. Just cook the cauliflower (either frozen in the bag or a floret head) until soft, remove from heat and drain water, then mash the crap out of it and add in your Mrs. Dash.

  3. Starting a 30 day challenge I found online today. I just did the fit test which is what they rec. you doing to see what level you are on. I'm sure trainers do this when you start programs with them. So I guess this is like my trainers but free! It has videos of the workouts so I'm pretty excited to start this with my journey!!!

    Here were my results for the fit test. I did each exercise for 50 seconds, and had 10 seconds in between each workout.

    Squat Jumps: 29
    Push ups (I opted for girl ones right now) 15
    Burpees: 11
    High Knees: 75 ( I took a 10 second break before 50 seconds was up!!)
    Switch Jump Lunges: 20
    Tuck Jumps: 19
    Straight Abs : 16

    I'm not sure how often we test ourselves to see how many we can do. Either way, this is my starting point. I'm going to go soak in ice water now! HA

    Great idea, it's always nice to get a baseline to see where your at that way you can compare to your end result! Keep it up!

    Anything that gives you structure and a routine is half the process. The most important thing to keep in mind is consistency and persistence. There are few things you can not accomplish if you have those two things.

    Do you stretch afterwards or take hot showers? This sometimes helps me but other times I still get so sore no matter what! I don't think there is a solution to get rid of soreness but anything helps. Think of soreness as a positive as in "I know i worked hard yesterday because my body is beat!" Haha I tell myself this sometimes, but from what your saying you are doing well! Can't wait to see the improvements at the week 2 mark. Keep it up!!

  8. I used to do legs on friday for a whole summer in college cuz that's what my training partner did (and he was the "wiser" (lol) of us), and boy howdy was it fun walkin around to the parties friday and saturday nights... (and no, I didn't drink and ruin what I worked hard for, but I still had a blast ).

    I usually stretch, but sometimes I just lay there because i'm exerting myself and my body is trying to get acquainted with working out lol. I tried the shower last night, that was perfect. I guess I need to always stretch. I will get there! I def think when I feel sore that I did something right! Thanks, Im excited to see where I am in 2 weeks too.

    LOL, I bet you looked funny. I'm like that now, but luckily I work with 19 6 year olds so they don't really care how I walk and they will run errands for me. Like get my more water and bring things to me so I don't have to walk much! Gotta love kids!

  10. I like kids as long as they are in small doses of time... (i.e. they go home with their parents LoL).

    Although walkin around like a gunslinger wasn't always that bad... it was just going DOWN stairs that was the challenge...

    LOL @ Gunslinger. You should just tell people to start calling you Roland when they see you walking like that.

  15. I'm doing the fit test again on Sunday. It will have been 2 weeks! i'll post up the results then. Should be an improvement although these workouts have been kicking my booty!!

  16. Have you felt yourself (fitness level) improving these past weeks? If so then you should beat the old test no problem! Get em!

  17. Just wanted to pop in and say keep pushing and keep doing the best that you can.

    I live with a teacher and I know how long those days can be. You seem like you have a good base, keep working at it

  18. Are you still going strong? Haven't got any recent updates, hopefully all is good.

  19. Yeah, in for updates.

    Sorry guys I fell off of here for a minute. I will update this later when I get off work and tell ya why I haven't been on here much! Thanks for checking in though!! Look for my updates later today!

  21. Glad to see you are still around.

  22. Sorry Guys! I am back around now. I was having some issues with some other posts on here (not this thread) that really turned me off of this site. So I stayed away for a while. But I'm back and hopefully have a better experience this time around.
    I am doing well on my journey though. I'm going to start working out in the morning because the afternoon is really just not working for me. I got some workouts sent to me from a trainer and I'm going to start following her meal plan which has me about 1200 calories a day.
    I have lost 5 pounds so far and I feel like I"m getting toner. I find myself able to do more of the exercises and my stamina has really gone up!

    The only problems that I'm having are staying full during the day. I'm ravishing by 4 pm and don't know what to eat then. I need like a appetite supressant or something. But wouldn't even know what to take that would help. Any way, that's some updates on me.
    I'll post the meal plan and workout plan in a but!

    Drink lots of water and get the fiber in. That should stave off your cravings. Eat the hell out of some crucifarous veggies at lunch to hold you over until your next meal. Heck, at 4 you should probably be eating again anyways. Just plan ahead.

    Nice work on the 5lbs.

  24. Sorry that there were some posts that turned ya off from the site for a while, gotta have a bit of a thick skin with all the high testosterone running rampant around here.

    Definitely congrats on the 5 pounds and higher energy/more toned Like the purple people eater said, water and fiber definitely help.

    Sorry about any post you may have seen.
    Some times on here we all get beside our selves.
    The post that affected u try were not directly related to you were they?

    Either way, glad you are losing weight. I could never only eat only 1200 Cals.
    Have you thought about somewhere around 1500-1900 Cals with cardio and and minor weights involved for toning?

    These guys had great suggestions, you may be ready for it you may not but OEP isn't a bad fat burner, look into that if you stall or need more energy. Personally I'm 195 pounds and 1 cap does me just fine... Look into it. That shouldn't be the first line of defense but it sure can help and u seem like you have everything else in order!

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.
