  7. Now I know why I'm not getting the results I want from weightlifting. I'm now in a female strength training class at my gym. Loving it!

      Correct form. Some machines don't fit a woman's frame. I used a exterior oblique machine to strengthen my core. It will build muscle to make your mid section thick (straight up and down waist) Not an hourglass shape. Who knew...lol

      OutsideMatchInside

      Oh okay. That is nice your gym has a class like that. I read this article a long time ago https://www.t-nation.com/training/sexy-female-training and talked to some trainers. It talks about how Britney screwed up her midsection overtraining her abs. It is an interesting read if not entirely accurate.

    4. Healthy_life2

      It was interesting. I have been on body building.com. I'm not sure if I'm looking for sexy or athletic workout for my body type.

  8. Back to the gym...At my high end of maintaining

      its a bit harder these days. I went from high calories before my half marathon. I'm getting back on the bariatric eating plan...detoxing from carbs. I'm feeling bit cranky.

  9. Neighborhood block party went well....~Whew~

      Back on the invite list for now....The drama in the neighborhood HOA has mellowed out.

      Glad to see it warm up. I live on my patio most of the summer. I love summer nights when it cools down to 90. Sitting outside people watching at the village or downtown is the best at night.

  12. Stress and anger...Going to the gym to work it out. loud agressive music here I come.

    1. KindaFamiliar

      KindaFamiliar

      There's a lot to be said for playing "Hot for teacher" or "Kickstart my heart" as loud as you can bear it...

      Van Halen and Motley Crue just not aggressive enough for my crap day. If you want an Idea of where my anger rated ..Check out what was in my playlist.

      I assume that's similar to our "Relay For Life" out here?

      I did this a couple of years ago...

      You're supposed to enter a team to walk for 24 hours and get sponsorship...

      I did it as my own team...

      Loved the article. It is similar to Relay For Life. Race for the cure is to raise funds for breast cancer. My Mother passed away in 2013. She was my main reason why I had surgery. Every year, I run race for the cure for mothers day . All in memory of her.

      Let me know next time...

      I'll sponsor you a few Australian dollars...

  14. Training hard for two distance runs in may. This may be disgusting..I have two toenails black and falling off. I'm thinking..Should I rip them off ?..I am not a fan of pain..

      ProudGrammy - Not teasing;) Dang sports injury. Like JamieLogical mentioned its typical with long distance. I have a race on May 7th and the 21st. My hope is they fall off before then. Christlnmo7 - A soak in epsom salt sounds good. I'm going to pick some up and talk a hot bath.

       

      Jamie did you do your race yet?

      Riddle me this?

       

      Seems like they each have unique hurdles.....some hurdles seem insurmountable....until they aren't.

       

      Wishing you the best on this day !!!

  16. I am relearning once again. I have a new sports medicine dietician/nutritionist for running endurance/performance. My calorie intake has been way to low for the amount of calories I burn. (causing significant hair loss at a year and a half out) Holy Crap! Calorie intake is now 2000. Protein goal 204g 30% Carbs 272g 40% Fat 91g. 30% Its 10:30pm I'm not at 2000 yet.

      The days I'm not training I get in 1300 to 1500 calories in. Training I burn 700 to 1000 calories with cardio. Eating 2000 calories is comparable to grazing. I eat a normal portion when I feel space in my tummy I eat again. I eat from 7:00am I finish around 1:00am its a all day project.

       

      I had lunch yesterday with a friend (he is also sleeved ) He finished his meal and had it boxed. He was sweet enough to wait for me to finish an entire plate of food.

       

    3. JamieLogical

      JamieLogical

      Okay, that makes more sense then. I did an experiment a couple of days ago to see how many calories I could get in in one day. I managed to get just below 3000, but I had to eat 10 separate times and I had to eat a ton of CRAP. I felt terrible after, so I don't think that's a good long term solution for me. I was trying to figure out how I could "load up" on calories the day before one of my long runs. But after eating all the crap, I felt terrible and definitely not up for a long run. So I am going to have to figure out something else.

      Healthy_life2

      Balancing protein, fruit, vegetables and carbs for 500 cal for each meal so far is working. I cant stomach loading up on an all carb meal in one sitting. It make me feel crappy.

  17. Well slap me silly...celebrities that cheated to lose weight. This was the headline in the National Enquirer as I checked out my groceries today.

      It was all about Christy Ally and Oprah. They have had WLS but are spokes persons for weight watchers etc...Just annoying

    3. Steph Anie

      I didn't realize that Christy and Oprah had surgery.....maybe bait and switch issue since they are false advertising how they lost it?

      In the grocery line or at the Drs office is the only time I read my trashy magazines. Just the headline. as I passed.

  19. The pumpkin pie was worth going back to the gym after Thanksgiving.

      Desert is a simple pleasure in life. Glad all of you also enjoyed Thanksgiving. Next is Christmas. I'm thinking about making a dinner menu. What do I want to indulge on next.
