  1. I'm still in the game! I've been busy with work, taking care of my health, wedding planning and my diet and fitness lifestyle. I will update more later but wanted you all to know that I didn't fall off the earth!
  2. Yes, you definitely don't want to overcook your veggies.
  3. I can understand falling off the Paleo wagon but good for you for getting back on! I'm curious what your 7th day meals look like...
  4. When it comes to kale, the right seasonings is key. A little lemon, salt, spice and not overcooking it. Try this recipe: http://nomnompaleo.com/post/3082537932/quick-and-simple-stir-fried-kale-and-bacon
  5. Day 4 Definitely had a pretty busy day today but managed to get to the gym this morning. Squats 150 lbs - 8x4 Lunges (forgot the weight) - 15x4 Lat/pull down 70 lbs - 8x4 Cardio (jump rope, rowing machine) I managed to get a lot of water in but I need more food. Work in process... Thanks, rexsomnii!
  6. Day 3 Today was a workout rest day so I just did some light walking. I wish I drank more water but tomorrow is a new day.
  7. Had a perfectly paleo day today: bacon, cod, chicken, salads, greens, lots of veggies, blue berries, etc. I should of had more water.
  8. My goal is to drop on size but I focus on my actions (drinking more water, staying Paleo, workouts, etc). Just losing a dress size is too vague for me... Hope that helps!.
  9. Day 2 Went to the gym this morning despite wanting to say in bed. Since I did work out now 4 days in a row, I will rest tomorrow. Leg press - 450 lbs Calf raise - 350 lbs (necessary? I think so) Deadlift - 100 lbs 15 minutes walking uphill in intervals. So far I've had bacon, cabbage, cod, and another salad, stevia sweetened chocolate but still pretty hungry at 12:33 PM...
  10. I love what you had for dinner but I hear you on the ice cream craving. I'm trying to find a good dairy, soy, sugar, etc free alternative myself. LOL!
  11. I just checked US Wellness Meats and they do have it! Thanks for the tips!
  12. I do but live in a city where all of those options are already taken up - waiting lists are completely full. I will try again, this is a good reminder for me.
  13. I need to find such a place. I end up buying from a local store...
  14. I'm in a similar boat as you. I have some arthritis caused by Lyme disease and the last thing I want is to be told to stop...
  15. I've been using coconut oil to cook with for years and I find its probably the best (next to lard, tallow, etc).
  16. Using a Excel spreadsheet is a a great idea - the best of luck to you!
  17. Thanks! I don't think I have a set goal for it yet. Maybe as much as I can do? LOL I've been doing this weight outside of the cage for a few weeks now so I figure I have another week or so before I start adding 5 lbs to it.
  18. Just got back home the gym (a couple of hours ago) and now I'm at my other mission (work). 1 hour Squats - 150 lbs4 sets / 9 repsLunges - 25 lbs on each side4 sets / 14 repsPull ups - Full body weight4 sets / 6 repsChest press - 50 lbs4 sets / 8 repsCore work, stretching, etc.
  19. Reporting for duty at this time. Off to the gym for some heavy weights then its back home. Still in the process constructing the rest of my week. I think Ill go on a long walk tomorrow morning depending on how my joints feel but its best for me to focus on today.
  20. Main Quest -Lose one dress size from a size 8 to a 6. Simple. Being a mesomorph with large bones that lift weights I don't own a scale (pointless for me) so I go by my own personal measurements. Mission -Drink close to a gallon of water a day, especially during my workout days. Though I haven't had a soda in over a decade and fruit juice in about 5-6 years I need to work on my water intake. Too much coffee and not enough water... -Continue going to the gym and doing HIIT and heavy weights 4-5 days a week (with appropriate rest days). I have always been active but, but challenging myself has been a...challenge for me. My average workout day includes: Squats - 150 lbsLeg press - 450 lbsDeadlifts - 120 lbsPull ups - full weight (mine)Other weight lifting exercises...I though in some HIIT, jump rope, and walking into the mix. -Avoiding sugar including natural sweeteners and high GI fruits. Because I have the tendency towards insulin resistance, I need to keep my sugar intake on the lower side. Life Quest I'm still working on my side quests but some of my challenges are definately health related. Having both Multiple Sclerosis and Chronic Lyme Disease is a challenge (some days are better than others) but diet and fitness has proven to be very helpful for me. I've been Paleo on and off (before I knew it had a name) for about 5 years. I've been gluten free since 2005 (before many people knew what gluten was) so I didn't feel the need to put it in my main goals. Its the maintenance part that's sometimes challenging.
