  1. So today is the first day of the rest of my -I hate that quote. So I learned a lot from my previous challenge. I learned that maybe just maybe, I wasn't eating enough. It's still funny, I think, that I can't just stop eating completely and the fat go away. It almost feels logical- food = fat so less food = no fat. But the science behind it makes that completely false. I started eating more to lose weight, I started walking and continuing my body weight workouts. The ONLY thing I changed was the started walking and the amount of calories I consumed. I went from 267 to 261. I had energy up the wazoo. Could it be that I found my miracle? Possibly. I found an old journal from when I lost weight the first time. I didn't have a cell phone then, so no MFP to go off of. But I talked a lot about eating and didn't include calories. I DID however include that I was "so damn full" -to quote myself- and maybe that's one reason why I lost so quickly and felt better. So this challenge I'm going to do 2 new things. 1. Walk. I used to walk practically every day. Rain, cold, sun I was out walking. 15 minutes on my break is what I did around the parking lot. Back then I was in an apartment and I didn't even do any workouts at all except that and occasionally dance central 2. I may lower my lifting to twice a week, and go back to dancing Friday nights to DC3 (they need to make a damn sequel already). 2. Eat to feel full. I hate eating. It fills me with anguish and frustration that I even deserve to eat considering I'm a fatty. I hate eating in public for this reason. But I have learned that I have to eat. It's apparently necessary. So even though I feel terrible for doing it, I've increased my calorie intake to 1900 and I'm going to try to meet that every day. I'm still going to keep my carbs low, not ketogenic low, but around 50, and see where that gets me. The last thing I'm going to do isn't new, really, but I'm going to include other things with it. at the beginning of the year I said I was going to start doing things just for me. To quit sitting in my chair feeling like crap and hiding because I'm fat. I'm going to be 35 if I make it to that point this year and while I know I have issues with the fact that I'm no longer in my 20s, I have to let that go and move on. So I'm going to do fun things. I'm going to continue to meditate 3x a week like I enjoy doing. I'm going to probably be more ritualistic about it, and incorporate some Tai Chi in the mix. I wanted to get to start my Wing chun class but the car said that he needed brakes instead so there goes that. But it's not a lost cause, just a delayed one. To round this out I'm: 1. Walk at least 3 times a week (weather permitting) 2. Lift 2-3 times a week 3. Eat more fewd 4. Relax and do more fun things That's it!
  2. So currently I'm trying an eat more to lose weight challenge and I'm having difficulty in doing so without having too much fat and carbs. I'm previously ketogenic and don't want to go above 60 carbs as carbs are very very bad for me. However because I have issues with my kidneys I can't go too high in fat either so I'm having problems trying to meet 1900, keep carbs low and fat not too high. Currently my diet looks like this: 1900 calories 10% carbs 40% fat 60% protein Breakfast 2 large eggs 3 strip uncured bacon 2 oz sausage Lunch: 2 cups spinach leaves 2 tbsp bacon chopped up 1 egg 3 oz chicken chopped up 4 tbsp Balsamic vinaigrette Dinner ranges from home made stir fry, paleo chili, turkey, chicken or ham (crock pot cooked) or salmon. I usually have them with celery, onions, broccoli, asparagus or carrots. I try to stay away from carrots due to the carb count. This is my usual go to but I'm either not meeting 1900 calories or I'm over carb. I can't seem to get the ratio to work. Today I'll be having paleo chili (http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/235014/paleo-chili/) which has 15g carbs, 22.3g protein, 13.3g fat in it per cup but it ends up being too much fat and not enough protein. I'll end up having 30 carbs just in this if I have 2 cups of it. And at the end of the day today I'll have 1681 calories (need 1900), 48g carbs, 108g fat (need 87) and 120 protein (need 244). I was thinking about adding veggies but I'm afraid of the carb count. Any ideas anyone?
