  1. Starbuck is your avatar! hellz yeah!! :D

  2. 12/30/2011 Bkfst: Iced brewed coffee, cherry yogurt parfait Lunch: greek yogurt parfait, med apple Dinner: bacon cheddar burger patty, boiled egg, stir fry veggies Supplement: fish oil Total Calories (FatSecret phone app): 1209 32% fat 58% carbs 18% protein (total of 108%... wondering about this phone app) I'm thinking that consuming a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight is going to be a challenge. 42g protein on Monday 47g protein on Tuesday 47g protein on Wednesday 96g protein on Thursday 57g protein on Friday Nowhere near 190g. Workout: walk/run for 2 miles
  3. I had no idea menstrual cups existed. I think you ladies just changed my life. Online shopping right now...
  4. That was my first guess, too. Wonder if that's the answer...
  5. I've noticed we are each categorized. So...... What's the system here? No issues with being a recruit, just curious. EDIT: Ah, nuts. Now I'm Rebel.
  6. More tall females (actresses) here. (Tricia Helfer, Lucy Lawless, and Famke Janssen, oh my!) Another, more comprehensive list here. I think Casie Leigh Shepherd is good motivation for figure competitions. At 6'2". Holla! Being TALL doesn't mean we have to be BIG.
  7. Good for you for wanting to get a handle on your finances. Loren Wade just posted about Dave Ramsey's book, The Total Money Makeover. I would also recommend it. Focuses on debt reduction. Good luck!
  8. Um, YES. I am a big Dave Ramsey fan. The TMM book changed everything. And his radio show (via free itunes podcasts) really keep me going. He goes on his rants sometimes a little over the edge for me, but they don't happen very often. I haven't used credit cards since 2009, I paid them all off, and now I only have about half my school loans left. My parents have more debt than I do. My makes-more-money-than-I-would-know-what-to-do-with engineer ex-husband has more debt than I do. (Ok, honestly, I have no idea how much debt he has, but as of a phone conversation a month ago he still has debt.) Crazy. And a lot of his fans also got other areas in their life on track after following his plan. Like living a healthier lifestyle, for example. Interesting, no? ryanmercer: And as far as being a christian, it's not a requirement to follow his plan. I'm not.
  9. bondgirl, thanks for getting this going. and perfect timing to work into january's 6-week (or 7-week?) challenge. i'm super excited!
  10. Ha! Yes, Starbucks is evil when it comes to diet. I knew my calories would go up from the previous day (<1000), but I overshot it a bit. According to my Fat Secret calorie calculator app: Grande Mocha is 220 Cal Coffee cake is 440 Cal Skinny Latte is 130 Cal Scone is 490 Cal The scone and coffee cake are 930 Cal together. Still using Starbuck gift card today, trying yogurt or something instead of cake-y stuff. Will post Calories results. Using this phone app to track my food consumption has been an eye-opening experience.
  11. 12/29/2011 *Still working on clearing out (i.e. eating) non-paleo foods in kitchen. Also using up Starbucks xmas gift card before paleo challenge.* Bkfst: 1 cups coffee with creamer Snack: Starbucks mocha, Coffee cake slice Lunch: Starbucks Skinny Latte, scone Dinner: Ramen Snack: 2 boiled eggs, tomato slices, cheese slices Total Cal (phone app): 2197 39% fat 45% carbs 15% protein Daily calories getting better, up to a more reasonable number. Still working on getting protein % up and carb % down.
  12. carjack: thanks for specifics. just what i was asking for. =D
  13. Howdy, guys. One of my long term goals is to compete in a bodybuilding/fitness/powerlifting competition. I'm no where near ready to compete, and I'm not sure which type of competition yet, but I am looking into it. After doing research online, I'm left with some questions. Hopefully someone here can help. QUESTIONS: 1. Has anyone competed in one of these? 2. Do I need a trainer or manager? 3. Do I have to qualify, or can I just sign up for a competition? 4. How do I know which type (bodybuilding, fitness, & powerlifting) is right for me? Anything in particular I should know before deciding which to pursue? 5. Any other suggestions or advice? Thanks!!
