  1. So I don't begin to say that I understand Paleo (ex. milk = not paleo, but butter which is made from milk is paleo or a potato is a nightshade just like peppers, tomatos, and eggplant but it's not paleo, etc.) After googling museli I'm fairly certain that neither it or soy milk (legume) would be paleo based on this chart below.
  2. bummer about the wrist, here's a picture of a cat twerk blocking to lift your spirits
  3. I'm generally suspicious of the sizes on clothing. What I fit into ranges between 2-4 inches smaller than what my actual measurements are.
  4. I kinda think this is the right place to ask the question. I'm at one of the lowest I've been since highschool (under 175) but still over 20% body fat (around 40 lbs based on my math) Can I eat calorie deficient and still out on muscle if my diet is right? I'm thinking that if I maintain around 1700 calories and focus on protein heavy diet that I may still be able to show gains while losing fat till I get my body fat % to a certain point. Can I do both out should I focus on one it the other (for me it would be cutting body fat to about 15% before I start looking for strength gains)
  5. So I'm thinking about changing up my routine and doing strong lift. When you are first starting out how do you determine what weight to do? Like I currently rarely squat and have done deadlifts twice, like 8 months ago, on a Smith machine. Do I just keep putting weight on till I can't do 5 reps and start from there?
  6. Hooray new person to follow on instagram
  7. they apparently just came out with a new Zumba game for xbox...
  8. Thank you for limiting it to only one drawer cause I'd go broke replacing everything that is now too big for me. I'm horrible at buying new clothes.
  9. So these challenges have popped up with some crappy timing as in the past 2 challenges I've lost a grandmother. Right now the food tracking one is completely off. I generally keep a log of what I do at the gym already so I have that all written down and the something new sticks out pretty well as it's something out of the usual. I'm going to attempt to take some time this weekend to sit down and get everything caught up for what I do have.
  10. For my T-Day meal I filled up a bowl with rice and topped with meat and veggies. For the rivarly party on Saturday instead of pigging out on bar food I did fairly well eating only chips and salsa and a couple of motzeralla sticks. Only like 3 more parties during the challenge to go!
  11. I was aboslutely horrible this past week with the food logging. Got all my exercise in and my something new but I just didn't trake what I was eating. I'm going to see if I can turn it around this week.
  12. depends on what your goals are. A can of regular v8 has like 52 calories, 20g carbs and 9g of sugar, and 487mg of sodium. A serving of the the splash strawberry kiwi doubles the calories per serving, 25.8g carbs with 23.5g of sugar. If you're looking to limit sugar intake, then I would stay away from them.
  13. Try green tea with lemon, no sugar and still has vitamin C in it. Works great for me when I have a cold.
  14. am I the only person that the link isn't working for?
  15. It's probably not the most cost effective solution, but getting a hyperactive dog that will make you go on walks might be a good way to go with that.
  16. Disregard, went back and read the OP and it answered my question.
  17. I almost think it was easier when I was just putting the details on notepad in my phone than using the app. I almost think the ease of having it in an app makes it more difficult for me to keep track or at least to remember to do so, and it seemed a lot easier for daily reconciliation when it was all in one place. I ran into my first tracking hurdle when I went out to breakfast with a friend at a local place and now I have to figure out what 2 eggs 1 waffle and 3 chicken strips work out to. Feeling kind of run down today so I don't think I'll be doing a complete recap for the past 3 days but I did get my something new, jogging, and I won't be doing that again anytime soon (shin splints suck)
  18. Thanks, I'm not sure if I'm getting lazy about it or the app I downloaded is actually making it more difficult but I've kind of found it harder to record things properly unless every single thing I eat has a barcode on it. I might almost go back to just keeping everything on a note pad on my phone. Week 2 Day 4 Something New - Still Nada, I've got my eye on a bunch of new yoga classes in mind for this weekend.

  24. Take out menus are gone, as is most of the "expired" food. Still haven't gotten around to tossing the old v8 cans that aren't in the fridge, but then the reason why they are probably expired is I keep them in the closet in my bedroom instead of anywhere near my kitchen.
  25. a clip of Jon Stewart bashing Arby's on The Daily Show feels like it would be appropriate here.
