Finished 40 minutes of cardio groove plus the 6 minute challenge. All went well until I got my finger twisted up in my pant leg... Ouch lol. Everytime I do cardio groove I hurt my finger. What's up with that? Lol

And there it is. 214.2 this morning. That puts me over 75 pounds down and under 10 pounds to go to no longer be on the "obese" chart.

Uncanny similarity! Make any meth lately? Haha.

Onto my own goals. My weightlifting "test day" goals were met on Sunday, so now I'm starting Cycle 3 of All Pro Weightlifting.

So this is my updated weightlifting stats!



Cycle 4 is going to be a tough one.

Eddie, you look GREAT! Way to go!

Last year, I weighed in at 253lbs. I'm down to about 215 these days, give or take a couple pounds depending on the day.

I hate it. I hate dieting, I hate exercising when in all honesty work is exhausting to me still, but I am stronger and healthier and keep going because I wanna be HOT, lol. So inspired by all of you!

I've lost so much weight loss motivation. Feeling really down about it right now.

I was down to about 190 and I've since shot up to probably about 215 again. Lost all the weight from eating paleo, but stopped because we dont have a kitchen and it was getting expensive. I need to get back on it though.

Since I stopped eating paleo I've been getting a lot of headaches and I'm pretty much sick to my stomach every time I eat so I don't eat much. When I eat something that I know is also paleo then I tend to stuff my face because I'm so hungry. The stomach aches are when I eat anything that is not at the very least gluten free it seems.

When I was eating paleo I felt so much more energy, cleaner, lighter, happy...

Sucks that I'm always on the move and usually have to get stuff to eat and eat in the car on my way to and from places. Making a nice clean meal to sit down and eat just doesn't seem to happen.

You can do it Skittle! I noted earlier in the thread - little victories. Eat better this meal. Do something active now. Don't worry that you have to eat better today, tomorrow and for the rest of the week/month/year/life. If you fail this meal, do better next time. Eventually you can build the good habit! I know that you are a strong young woman and you can do anything you set your mind to.

As for my day, no games today. Kids wanted to ride bikes after dinner, so I took them on my 2.5 mile route. When we got back (nearly 30 minutes later), I said, "I'm going around again" and got it down to 11:20. That's 50 seconds off my previous time.

I'm a nerd and found some fun apps for mapping my hikes and walks. Made me super happy to have new tools to play with!

I don't know if you were doing cheese or not with your paleo, but if so I've found that pre-making and having little deli meat/cheese rollups in the fridge and at the ready is an awesome way to eat on the go. Keep them in a couple tupperwear in the fridge so that you can just grab a tupperwear on the way out the door!

Not the healthiest of all the healthy, but it is relatively cheap, not messy, and super easy!

You can do it!!

Agreed!! Skittle, here is my list of "paleo to go" recipes. I will need to pack lunches and dinners when I start traveling with the dogs again so I sat down and worked up this list. These are easy to pack and heat in a microwave if you're at work, or warm up in the morning and pack into a good insulated lunchbox to stay hot.

Meatballs - just meat rolled into a ball and baked, or some variation of these (skip almond flour/meal in any of these. I promise they'll hold together.):
http://paleomg.com/breakfast-bacon-maple-meatballs/
http://taste-for-adventure.tablespoo...loaf-cupcakes/ - I made these without the breadcrumbs. Awesome!! But fresh parm is a teensy bit expensive if you're cutting the food budget. You could just do a chicken meatball with mozz in the middle.

Sausage patties

Breakfast hash/casseroles - my favourite involves taking a small sweet potato, using the shredding attachment for my food processor, then frying them up to hash browns. Layer those on the bottom of a casserole dish. Next get some breakfast sausage and fry it up crumbled in a skillet and layer that on top of the sweet potato. Next crack, whisk, and pour eggs on top. Anywhere from 8-12 depending on how many you want to use and the size/shape of your casserole dish. Finally, layer strips of bacon on top. Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes or until the egg is set. I like to slice it like a loaf and eat a slice (or two... maybe three...)

Mashed sweet potatoes - or mash, then turn into a potato pancake and bake (or fry with some coconut oil.) I like to season mine with chipotle powder and cinnamon. You can also do a sweet potato casserole version with pecans/walnuts and some maple syrup and it's good cold.
You can also make your own sweet potato fries!

Paleo trail mix... google for some ideas but basically get yourself some nuts you like, chop them up or leave them whole, get some dried fruit (the kind that is just straight dried fruit without sugar added), unsweetened shredded coconut if you like it... and throw it into a container. Shake it up. My paleo trail mix on my shelf is currently just a bunch of nuts seasoned with cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. Next time I think I want to do a spicy version with chili and peppers.

Homemade lara bars... beware, these are going to be high in carbs. But oh so good! I broke mine into tiny pieces and ate a tiny little piece as desserts.

Chicken... just baked chicken tenderloins. Some people like to just eat straight shredded chicken. Season it however you like, there's no lack of ways to season chicken.

Jerky. A food dehydrator isn't super expensive and you can make your own, or just be careful with the ingredient lists and buy good ones from the store. Or if you know people who hunt, often they make jerky from their kills. My dad got a ton of venison jerky years ago... turkey jerky is another common one around here from hunters.

Paleo breads, pancakes, or waffles... just be careful with these, avoid anything that is super heavy on almond flour, and remember that calories (and carbs) still count

Egg muffins - here's a non-breakfasty type variation: http://www.primalpalate.com/recipe/b...n-egg-muffins/ Mine are normally like this but include bacon: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recip...?recipe=450757

You can also do muffin tin "meatloaves" like the chicken parm meatballs I linked above.

Lunch meat and cheese roll-ups like PW mentioned. I can't afford the really great, expensive lunch meats, but I did find Hormel Naturals to be pretty affordable (especially if I get the big "family" pack) and not very objectionable on the primal/paleo scale. No added nitrites or nitrates, no artificial flavours, naturally gluten free. I'll take it.

BACON.

Fresh berries are great, you can do some banana slices as well if you like bananas... bananas + nut butter is yummy!

Hard boiled eggs, I know some people enjoy them cold so that's a hot + cold option.

Scotch eggs: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/prima...#axzz2WXDOasyA



Those are just the ideas I wrote down. There's other stuff I realistically could make and take along as leftovers as well.
You might want to get into the habit of cooking and packing all your lunches on Sunday and stocking the fridge so you're ready to go... that way you don't have the chance to go "what should I take for lunch today?" and be in a rush and NOT take something, because it will already be there, packed and ready to go. My breakfasts are almost always egg muffins; if I haven't made any, I do scrambled eggs in the microwave:
