See I really know nothing about nutrients. Anyone have good tips or links?

I just need to make sure to take my metformin every day
Same here...if I take my metformin and my adderall I don't even feel like eating, and when I do eat it's about half or less of what I'd usually eat unmedicated. But when I stop or forget, it's right back to how it used to be. Plus they both seem to make me lose weight regardless of food or exercise, so eating healthy and exercising on top of it only makes it go faster.

Usually I can put back a 12" sub and want more, but last night I could barely make myself eat half. Plus I generally feel better and am more apt to exercise when I take my meds like I'm supposed to.

Laur, do you take it once a day or twice a day? I fail miserable at taking it when I'm supposed to do it twice a day, but if I take the extended release once a day, I can take it when I get up and forget about it the rest of the day. Both my meds are once a day and extended release, and that's really the only way I can take them regularly. At this moment my metformin is 2 500mg ER tablets once in the morning, but now that I have insurance again I'm going to go back to one 1000mg tablet (60 of the 500mg ER tabs are $4 without insurance, but 30 of the 1000mg ER tablets are almost $200 ). I also have less GI upset when I take it once a day, or at least I can plan for when it'll hit.

So slooooow going though. So I ramped it up today and starting workout tomorrow (need to shave lmao). I had been doing 2 meals a day low carb and we're trying to go for 3....

I'm really hungry though right about now in the day. It's miserable and it happens every time I try low carb.
It takes a few weeks of very strict to get the body to change. That part does suck no getting around it, but once your body becomes more efficient at lipid metabolism, it's much better.

Took a 2 mile hike with the dogs two days ago. Then today I did a cardio/strength workshop inside since we had some NASTY weather.

Hoping to get a run in Saturday!

I like the article about it on Nerd Fitness - seems long, but it's easy to read.

http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011...ealthy-eating/

The biggest thing I did was to simplify. Everything starts from scratch, and I learned to cook and take a little time to prepare my meals. Meats, vegetables, carbs - when I'm in the grocery store, 80% of my groceries come from the fresh fruit/veggie section and the butcher. Cooking from scratch is easier than it seems - it doesn't have to be complicated and you can make enough for leftovers!

Went for a "group run" tonight sponsored by a "local" running shop (about 30 minutes away from home). Great time. We went 4 miles in a soaking rain and they let us sample Zensah leg sleeves for the run and gave us all free green tshirts (St. Paddy's Day theme). Free beer and corned beef and cabbage was offered in the store afterward. I didn't partake, but hung around and chatted a bit. I'm in the orange shorts and no hair middle/right Glad to be back out on the road. Been a very long winter.

This has helped me a lot, too. Plus, once you get the hang of it... It tastes infinitely better.

There is a CrossFit opening right around the corner from my work/bank. I can't say I'm not tempted to at least check it out... I've been reading a lot of reviews and several people have been happy with the system.

I know FG did CrossFit. Anyone else have any experiences with it?

My nutrition has greatly improved the past week. I've been eating a lot more veggies. We always eat a lot of lean meat, so there wasn't much change there. Prepping more meals, eating out significantly less.

Did a workout last night indoors.. just a home DVD with Jillian Michaels. Went okay.. she had some things that were hard for my uncoordinated self to follow but we made it through and definitely got a good mix of cardio/strength and got my heart rate up. I've been successfully off pop for a just under a week now (I splurged last weekend and had 2 at the horse expo). Drinking about 40 ounces of water a day. Feeling like I should be focusing more on running as 5K's are what I'm training for atm, but at the same time the variety is probably good for me and any fitness activity will help! BETTER THAN THE COUCH!

So, there's a Planet Fitness opening super close to my apartment building. And it's $10 a month. I can afford $10 a month. I'm also terrified to go to the gym, because I have no idea what I'm doing.

I can handle the cardio on my own with running/cycling, but the more I read, the more everyone says that weights are huge for getting fit/weight loss. But again, I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT I'M DOING AROUND WEIGHTS!

Halp?

I'm looking for relatively easy to manage weight routines. Nothing that needs a spotter. Nothing that needs perfect form.

Halp?

One more pound and I am out of the 230s for the first time in a long time.
