  1. I'm in! Got my challenge post up today too. Whew. Jesus, be my strength.
  2. Haha thanks! They're pretty prevalent in Texas, too. When I finally get around to starting a blog, that's what it'll be called. How to make sense of a blog that'll be half fitness and half faith-ness is proving to be difficult, lol.
  3. Seconded. I feel you on the "OMG what's wrong with me???" anxieties (esp. online where people are a little more open about being agressive against conservatism). But seriously, if a guy can't put his faith before sexual desires, I can't really trust him, you know? Is he going to put his sexual "needs" ahead of *me*, too? (Basically, cheating.) If it weren't for the group of friends that I've aquired since I've been a practicing Catholic, I'm certain I would have compromised by now. The young adult group at my church encompasses 20-39 year olds, so you'd be right in the middle of that one,
  4. Catholic nerd here. It's acutally my faith that motivates me to seek fitness. It's a constant struggle but I have faith in him who gives me rest.
  5. I think I want this for dinner *tonight*! Everything sounds good. Or maybe I'm just hungry...
  6. So my wisdom teeth are coming out soon, and everyone's suggestions for soft foods while I recover (suprisingly) aren't that paleo. (At all.) While I would love an excuse to eat all the mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, and ice cream I want, I'd rather not deal with the guilt, food comas, and achiness that come with it. What's your favorite mushy paleo food? I could really use your ideas. Mashed sweet potatoes, hard boiled eggs, and tuna is all I have on my list so far.
  7. This is an awesome idea. We should all send something. Strength in numbers?
  8. Congrats Fyre! What's your ultimate goal? I've lost 5lbs in 4 weeks, which isn't so bad considering how easily I'm influenced into cheating, lol. I'm looking forward to really sticking to it this month so I can get more dramatic results.
  9. Thanks everybody. A lot of good points here that I can add to my arsenal of explaining the benefits of the paleo lifestyle vs SAD diets.
  10. Calm down, calm down. I don't really mean a mano-a-mano showdown between the two. You see, I have a girl friend who has lost 40 lbs in 6 months on WW (whereas I'm 2 weeks into paleo). My question is this: If paleo is so good for us, why do other diets like Weight Watchers work, too? I was trying to tell her all about the health benefits, the science, yadda yadda, but what it comes down (for the both of us) is weight loss. If that's the case and WW clearly provides that result, why should one starve themselves of all the brownies and pasta that she has "points" for, in favor of paleo?
  11. Well, I love it when I find answers to my own questions. I did a seach on Mark's Daily Apple and found all kinds of articles about. Good to know! http://www.marksdailyapple.com/herbalicious-rhodiola-rosea/#axzz2I5Q7eNHt
  12. Congrats on the 100!! I too hope to join that club someday. Loved the advice. Since I'm just a beginner it was really helpful to me to see what things are going to look like 3, 6, 9 months into the future; it's not so hazy anymore. Thanks!
  13. Ice cream is my weakness! Luckily, I found an alternative. I slice a ripe banana thin,put the slices flat on a plate, freeze it for about 15 minutes, and it gets the consistency of ice cream! And it's sweet!
  14. Thanks guys. Lydieboo, as far as goals... Looooongterm: Join the 100 lb weight loss club; Intermediate: 5k on May 4th Immediate: 80/20 clean eating; increasing physical activity/excercise daily (I work on the 5th floor, so this shouldn't be too hard, lol.); get my bi-annual check up; increase water intake. I've got the motivation that I've been lacking for years, so I'm hoping that keeping up the fight moment will come, and that I'll be ready for it. Thanks for the Whole30 link. I've been looking at Sisson's 21 Day Transformation book, but I'll give this a look, too!
