Well here it is, my new fat loss jounral. I may not be obese like some here but I have had my troubles with weight all my life and have always been overweight. I never had good self image and although I have a confident personality I have always felt uncomforatble with myself.

So here we go, time to shed the pounds and become the best me I can be, in life and in my sport. I am a hockey goaltender. I want to be healthy and fit and I want people to admire me because I did it naturually with hard work.

Time for a few pics:

My start: Apri; 2, 2007. At my all time high of 163 pounds I realised my weight was getting the best of me. I'm not obese but I am overweight and the scale was always slowly climbing pound by pound, I decided now was the time to change.

http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com//img/538296/progresspic/21668orig.jpg

Just beginning: April 21, 2007. I thought I was doing awesome, I lost 6.5 pounds easy within a week. Most was water weight and returned very shortly. I didn't notice much of a difference but I felt better because I knew I was doing something about my weight.

http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com//img/538296/progresspic/26975orig.jpg

Keeping up: April 29, 2007. Back up a pound but feeling good, I noticed a slight difference in my back and arms. My mom says you lose fat first where you last but it on, that is true. The last fat I put on was on my upper back, that seemed to almost dissapear after the first week or so. My stomach and thighs will take the longest.

http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com//img/538296/progresspic/28674orig.jpg

Today: May 13, 2007. Well, a stressful week and a few too many cheat foods and here I am back up to 158. I have noticed new energy and strength in both my hockey and everyday life. I am a little more confident, now that my pictures are out there to see I dont feel like hiding my fat anymore. It is what it is, but it wont be that way for long.

http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com//img/538296/progresspic/32403orig.jpg

So, here are my goals:

-Lose 20-30 pounds, I'd like to be in the 120-130 range.
-Get to 12-15 percent bodyfat, I think I'm around 30 percent right now but I dont know, thats just a guess, I hope to find out for real soon.
-Look good and feel confident in a bikini, boy I cant wait for that, maybe I'll even get a boyfriend then.

This journal will be where I record pictures, goals, results, and daily diet/routine/comments.

I'd love to hear encouragement from people or comments/suggestions. Wish me luck!

Going on a walk with the family in a little bit.

Dinner was:

Several small pieces of Tri Tip Steak
Steamed Squash
Wild/White Rice Mix
(skipped out on the bread, ha ha)
To finish it off I had a handful of dried bluberries, so rich in antioxidants and really tasty. I love em.

Good luck with your cut.

Only one question, isn't 12-15 % bf way too low for a female? That'd be like 8 percent on a guy and I've heard it'll cause medical problems.

05-14-2007, 12:16 AM
12% is still in the safe level for women year around. Once you get much lower than that it can really mess with estrogen levels etc. But 12-15% is perfectly fine. Good luck with your cut if you need any help feel free to shoot me a pm and I'll be glad to help out.

I thought 12-15 was a good number to shoot for, I'm aiming for clsoer to 15, I gotta take things slow and I donw want to end up looking super skinny either.

Todays exercise:

Mile Hike
Football
(I will bike and then workout later today)

Today's diet:
Oatmeal w/ PB, Z Bar

Z Bar

PB Sandwich
Rice Cakes
Carrots/ a few dried blueberries

Z Bar

I haven't had dinner yet.


Todays notes: I have realised I am hitting the Z Bars(protein bars) a bit too hard. They arent horrible for me but I shouldnt have 3 a day even though they are tiny. I am hungry between meals so I think I will replace some of those protein bars with either milk, raw almonds or something else.

I feel good today, lots of energy. My calf is hurting a bit, its been bothering me for a bit, I think I might have strained it yesterday. Also my malformed ankles are acting up after my hike so I will bike today instead of run. I plan on working my back and legs today.

Today I weighed in at 157, down another pound.

Anyone have any reccomendations for quick healthy snacks?

Thanks

Great job girl, awesome that you play hockey!!!!! I wish I would've done that :-) Here's some snack ideas:
string cheese
small amount of almonds
1 piece whole grain toast with chicken/turkey (toast takes like 30 seconds)
Bell pepper slices (i keep them in the fridge, and I like them with PB)
I am doing keto, so my diet is a bit different from yours. I don't eat the toast anymore, but that was one of my favorite snacks! Also, if you're eating white rice cakes, you should switch to whole grain since the simple carbs aren't really needed unless they're timed around a workout.
I'm a little curious whether you're monitoring your caloric intake; it looks very low, especially since you play a sport. Don't go too low, or you'll lose muscle and plateau quickly, as well as really slowing your metabolism.

Don't rely too much on the Z bars. I assume they are standard protein bars. I notice that you ate them three times. They are fine as an occassional energy booster, but I have read that they sometimes contain high amounts of sugar. Not to mention they are costly.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks maxiderm.

Dinner was homemade nachos. A little more fattening than most of my meals but not that bad. The thing was loaded with protein. I'm gonna do my cardio tonight. I already did most of my back and shoulders workout, I'll probably do some more before bed tonight.

Goalie_Girl
05-14-2007, 09:36 PM
Had an awesome cardio session just now, I can barely walk.

25 minutes of really fast walk on 11 incline(highest my treadmill has)
4 minutes of really fast jog on 2 incline (pretty straight)
1 minutes of sprint on 2 incline (pretty straight)

About a mile and a half, the incline made it take longer to walk the mile, even though I was going fast I was practically walking straight up hill. 3265 steps approximately.

Woohoo, I feel good.

Thanks for the comments. I have heard from others my caloric intake looks low, but it usually is for breakfast and lunch and then I consume more calories at dinner. I am working on leveling it out. Thanks for the snack ideas.

Dinner: Lean Beef Stroganoff

I had the extra protein bar to prepare for my hockey. I didnt bike or lift before but I will lift shortly. I am also biking to school tomorrow.

Today I cheated, for lunch I had a large omellete, the ingredients weren't all that bad but, I had an english muffin with it and the while thing was really large with a lot of patatoes so yeah. Dinner was healthy and good, I had dessert today, a low fat ice cream bar. I honestly dont think it was worth it. Next time I'll hold out for something better, but that wont be for a while now. I did almost no exercise today, I did a little arm lifting but not much and I took a very short brisk walk. I have been too injured to do anything real heavy lately. I sprained my thumb, bruised my elbow and I have a sore back. Plus I have a hockey tourny on saturday so I'd like to try and heal and not get more injured. I am down from 163.5 about a month and a half ago to 155.5 yesterday, that 8 pounds. I feel good other thatn being injured.

Just checking back in :-) Great job on the weight loss! Don't worry about making all your meals level, it's not the most important thing. Just make sure you're eating enough. Have you figured out macros or anything? When I followed a 40/40/20 macro breakdown I got great results; I got better ones with keto, but with you playing hockey and all, keto might be tough to adjust to. Sorry to hear about your injury, it's good you're taking it easy though and letting yourself heal. :-) Good luck in the tournament, that sounds exciting, tell us how it goes!

Thanks, I'm going to try and do awesome, hoefully my team will play well. Uhhmmm, I havent really monitered my macros. I'm not sure what that means, if you'd like to explain it to me or provide me a resource that would be great. Right know my diet consists of a lot more protein and less fat and carbs. Less breads, sugars and salts. Just trying to generally eat better, I have no real formula but I'm sure that'll get better with time, any help would be appreciated.

Ah, macros are pretty important in my opinion! My body didn't come together until I began to monitor those :-) So keep in mind that Carbs and Protein contain 4 calories per gram, and Fat contains 9 calories per gram.
You should first find your BMR to ascertain your caloric needs. Let's say that, at your height/weight/gender level, you need 2300 calories a day to maintain your weight; to lose weight, you eat a 500 cal. deficit, so that's 1800 cals. a day. You can find a BMR calculator on BBing.com or google it.
A very basic way of eating is 40%/40%/20% (Carb/Prot/Fat). This means that you'll break those 1800 hypothetical calories down and eat 720 calories from Carbs and Protein and 360 calories from fat. Divided out, that's 180 g of Prot. and Carbs, and 40 grams of fat for the day. You can eat 3-6 meals, whatever's convenient. These are all fake numbers, but you can find out your own easily once you've found your BMR. Also, check out the Nutrition stickies for great food choices.

...I see you beat to me to the punch gfundaro, well played...well played...

Don't be too worried about fats, fats don't you make fat, an excess of calories makes a person fat :-)

Thanks for your advice guys I'm just still a bit confused, here are my questions.

can someone hook me up with a good BMR calculating site?

How do you know where the caloried come from? Is it strictly wieght? Cause I dont have a scale to weigh the stuff. A lot of things I eat just list calories, anyone have a site that can really clearly explain this to me?

Thanks for your help guys! I leave at 3 today for my hockey tournament, yay 4 hour drive -_-

I plugged in your age, weight, etc. and got these numbers (hopefully they show up hehe, if not you can do it yourself).

The calories come from the grams of whatever nutrient you're looking at. If there's 9 grams of fat in an item, that means there's 81 calories from fat (9 grams x 9 calories). If there's 9 grams of protein or carbs, there's 36 calories from protein/carbs (9 grams x 4 cal). It's great to weigh your food! You can also measure it, like 1/2 c. oats can be measured in a measuring cup. Or, if it gives you a dry weight amount for a serving size, you can simply weigh out how many grams of oats you want. If something lists only the calories, that's a bit harder, and you might have to go to www.nutritiondata.com and look up what you're eating and in what amounts.

The results of your calculations are: BMR 1,560 RMR 1,496 (calories)

Those are the numbers I got. ^^^^^

So what exactly does this mean for me if I want to lose weight? ^_^

Oh no, scroll down farther than that LOL. You have to figure in your activity level! Your BMR is what you need to stay alive and healthy just laying in a prostrate position all day. You need more than that, check out the Activity Level chart find the amount that corresponds with your amount of activity during the week. Whatever number that is, eat 500 calories below that number to lose weight in a healthy and safe way. For instance, if you're moderately active, your BMR is 2415. 2415-500 is 1915...so, eat 1,915 calories a day. If you ate 2415 calories a day, you'd maintain your current weight.

Thanks for your advice. I ate horribly this weekend because I was driving most of the time and was at a rink playing hockey and didnt have healthy food at my fingertips. I must have gained some, not sure how much though. Oh well, I did play a lot of hockey and exercise though and will be back on track. I practice in an hour and then I plan to lift and run later today. Thanks all.

gfundaro
05-20-2007, 10:29 AM
How did you guys do in the tourney? It's good you got exercise, that will help offset the cheat-weekend. You can do a cheat every week or two, but the size and the frequency of your cheat may adversely affect your fat loss; you'll have to gauge that as you progress. I average a cheat day once every 8 weeks, but I don't plan mine, they just happen when I feel comfortable having one. When you're traveling, it's a great idea to bring an insulated lunch bag with you. You can pack all your food for the weekend if you bring along ice packs and such, and it's even better if there's a fridge you can use. I do this every time I travel. I'll bring hardboiled eggs, pre-cooked bacon, cheese sticks, nuts, etc. Then all you have to concern yourself with is saying 'no' when someone offers you something unhealthy.

I did well at the tourney, I took home top goalie award, and our team was 2-2, 2 wins and 2 losses. We took home 3rd place out of 7 teams. Our last loss was really bad though.

I didnt have much time to prepare for my trip or I would have packed my own food. I got out of school and almost immediately left. Next time I'll pack some better food.

Great job!!!! My dad is watching the Wing's game on TV right now lol, we're a hockey family :-) Good job losing 1/2 pound, but keep in mind that your weight will fluctuate a lot, especially since you're a female. It's better to weigh yourself every 1-2 weeks rather than every couple days, or you'll soon become obsessed with the scale. When you put on muscle, your weight will increase, and some weeks you may not lose anything. Other weeks during that 'time' your weight will increase. Scale weight isn't a great indicator of progress, especially for females.

Goalie_Girl
05-20-2007, 02:35 PM
Yeah, I already know that I'm a little scale-happy, :). I'm just really trying to get on some sort of downward trend because as my weight chart shows its been more like a roller coaster kind of thing.

Haha don't worry, that's how it is in the short term. I can gain/lose 1-2 lbs from just an hour long workout :-) And I generally gain 4ish lbs after a carbup, and 5-6 lbs for that one 'special' week. I update my weight once a week for my progress, but mine looks like a rollercoaster too, even in the long term. So body fat (using calipers rather than bioimpedance) is a much better way to gauge progress. You should see if anyone in the gym is certified to take bodyfat measurements.

I'm actually working out at home right now. I have a treadmill and some light weights. I am looking at getting a gym membership soon, I just have to save up some cash.

I have a question about the macro thing, so if I am eating a 40%/40%/20% (Carb/Prot/Fat) split then does that mean all my calories for the day have to be protein, fat, or carbs? I need an example, like if I were to eat a scoop of peanut butter, just an example, how do you break down the calories, do all of the calories account for protein, fat, and carbs? Ijust need someone to give me example info for a specific food and break it down for me please.

Thanks

2 TBSP PB is usually:

17 g fat
5g carbs (3 from fiber, so 2 NET carbs that count)
6 g protein

So if you ate 2 tbsp at a meal, you'd have to eat more of other stuff to fill up your nutrient needs. There are few foods that are JUST protein (even tuna has like 1g of fat) or JUST carbs (bread has some protein and some fat). You have to combine foods at each meal to create a 40/40/20 split for the meal.

Todays diet:

Breakfast: Oatmeal w/ PB

Snack: Yogurt, Applesauce

Snack 2: 90 calorie granola bar

Lunch: Tuna roll(whole wheat tortilla, tuna and salsa, a little cheese) carrots

Snack 3: Yogurt

Dinner: -yet to come- probably a low cal, low fat frozen dinner

Exercise, none so far, but I plan to go exercise in the next 20 minutes or so. My rink is closed for the next week so no hockey for a week, which means I'll have to find a way to get more exercise. I plan to do maybe some skating and/or goalie movement drills and some running and then a little lifting.

Haven't weighted since a few days ago, I dont plan to weigh myself until monday. I'm probably a little bit up as of now beause I haven't been able to exercise because of my busy schedule and I ate ribs last night...mmmm.

Just checking in, so far today I have eaten:

Breakfast:A small bowl of cereal

Snack: Yougurt

Snack 2: Granola Bar

Lunch: Apple Sauce, Carrots, A bite of my friends chicken

I have been super hungry lately because I ahven't been totally even with my diet. I need to add more protein. Other than that, I feel good. Although an injury kept me from cardio for a while but today I feel 100% so I'll be doing cardio today.

Goalie_Girl
05-24-2007, 09:14 PM
I cheated tonight: I had some light ice cream, it was good. I prolly had a little too much though. I'm just sort of bummed because no matter how healhy I eat lately I have only seemed to gain, maybe its bloat from my period but I dont know. I'm up like 2.5 pounds right now....why? Other than not having cardio for about 4 days I cant see anything else....

Goalie_Girl
05-25-2007, 01:34 PM
Ran a mile today.....11:40. About a minute and 20 seconds worse than my last one. Arrgh, I'm pretty sure why it was that bad(on my period, sick, calve injury0 but there are no excuses. I will run again later tonight and lift.

So far I have eaten:

Breafast: Oatmeal w/ PB, Some peach slices

Snack: Yogurt

Lunch: Apple Sauce, Carrots ( i accidently left my sandwich at home, so I'll be eating a pb and j sandwich in about an hour an a half.)

Exercise: Ran/walked a mile (hopefully will run and lift later tonight)

It sucks to be gaining so I'm gonna work out extra hard and try to lose what I gained back and then some. Id like to be down to 154 next time I weight in, thats 3.5 pounds, wish me luck! Thanks for the support.

thanks Quickxi.

Well, I undid any cardio I did today at dinner. We went out to a restaurant, I had pesto pasta with seafood and a couple bites of chocolate cake at the end. Uggh, I feel so fat, but it was really good, I'm gonna double lifting and cardio tomorrow and cut down on the food intake a bit.

thanks cornwallus. I had fun today, did early mornig cardio, worked out. Made some low fat brownies, mmm so good. I figured I'd post the recipe, I do mine without chocolate chips, any cut back is good, so here it is. They are really good and not too bad for you(almost no fat, no cholesterol, a couple carbs tho):

Double Chocolate Brownies
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
Butter-flavored cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch non-stick cake pan with spray.
In a medium mixing bowl, using a sturdy whisk or spatula, mix the applesauce, vanilla, egg whites and sugar until they are well combined. Add the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder and salt. Stir the mixture until it is just combined and no lumps remain. Pour it into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the chips evenly over the top. Bake the brownies for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry (a few crumbs are okay).
Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and allow them to cool 5 minutes. Cut into 12 equal brownies.
Makes 12 (1 brownie) servings.
Each brownie has: 88 calories, 2 g protein, 19 g carbohydrates, 1 g fat, <1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 133 mg sodium.


Anyway, I plan to cook for myself again tonight, anyone have any quick healthy recipes with tuna?

Today Im 157.5, I know I just weighed myself yesterday but I wiehg myself everytime I am about to take pictures. Here is my latest progress picture. I have added notiible muscle to my arms and shoulders and lost noticible fat from my back, now I just wish the gut would shrink. :D

http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/img/538296/progresspic/36464orig.jpg

Todays Diet:

Breakfast: None, Water

Lunch: Frozen Low-Cal/Fat Lasagna(310 cals) and a brownie, 2 peach Slices

Snack: A brownie

I think I should have eaten breakfast, that way I could have avoided eating that extra brownie, I was trying to do cardio on an empty stomach...not sue If I'll do that again or not, maybe it burns fat better but I was tired almost all day before and after and I got a bad side ache during my cardio.

Today's Exercise:

Morning: 15 min Cardio(run/power walk)

Afternoon: Lifting (Back, shoulders, arms)

Night: Either a high intensity bike ride or a run...not sure yet.

Thanks for stopping by all, good luck with your goals.

I lifted and ran tyesterday, I was too busy to get my second cardio session in but today I will run in the morning and then go on a hike/walk in the afternoon and then I hope to lift when I get home. Then finally tomorrow I play hockey again after a week of my rink being closed. I hope this will help me to lose a little more, sometimes without hockey I dont fit in as much exercise as I should. I hope I'll remember how to play too.

thanks heathershubby, I have been playing really well lately so I'm not too worried, In fact pretty soon, I'd like to make a recruitment video to send off to colleges and bay area teams! I'm excited, I hope they'll like what they see. I'll post it here when I make it too. It'll be a while though, prolly not for about 3 weeks or so. I dont know why but I always get nervous after a break from hockey, I'll be fine though, root for me to win on tuesday.

Whew....I just some moved monster pieces of furniture down a flight of stairs and through my house. It was almost as good as a lifting session. My dad said, "Lindsay, I'm proud of you, 3 months ago I'm not sure if you could have done this. You arms are looking bigger." I just smiled. I hope to hike today but I might not, I'll lift tongiht either way and maybe do another cardio session, I did 20 minutes of cardio earlier today.

Goalie_Girl
05-28-2007, 06:27 PM
Just finished my hike, but as it turns out I wont have tome to lift later tonight, I am currently typing a report, so I need to do that and eat dinner and do my other homework and chores. I still might fit something in, we'll see.

05-28-2007, 06:41 PM
this poster, Adrenaline2008, just posted some nasty comments on my pictures at my bodyspace calling me "sickening" and "GROSS!" Makes me feel great about myself. :( I'm not that bummed cause I know at least I have the courage to post pictures, whereas he does not and I try to help build people up, not tear them down. Oh well, I guess when I'm smoking hot he'll look like an idiot. No wonder his reps are in the red....

thundergut
05-28-2007, 06:54 PM
Don't pay it any mind GG. It's folks like this Adrenaline2008 who:

A) Don't have the courage to post their own pics.
B) Tear others down so they feel better about their own sorry a$$.
C) Spew their words out on the internet anonymously because in real life, they don't have the testicular fortitude to do so.

Now everybody has an opinion, just like everybody has an a$$hole. Lots of people will give you their opinions, don't doubt that, but keep in mind that they are just that...opinions. It's the rare intellectual like Adrenaline2008 who let everybody see their a$$hole while giving their opinion.

Delete the comments, ignore it, and move on.

You're wrong on one count tho...he won't look like an idiot when you're smoking hot. He'll still look the same as he does now, like an idiot. Whereas you, whether you feel smoking hot or needing improvement, are already leaps and bounds beyond him.

Keep your chin up :)

How do you delete comments?

05-28-2007, 07:23 PM
Good question, but I'm not sure. I know if it's a comment on your BodySpace you can delete them, but not sure about picture comments. You might be able to message an admin to see if they can, or you can just do your best to ignore them and/or use them as motivation.

heathershubby
05-29-2007, 12:49 AM
to an admin and he will be banned I am sure that is uncalled for crap.

A. I just looked at your progress pics and they look great

B. His idea of a sport is watching poker on t.v.

C. you have made some crazy strength gains and the muscle you have added in the shoulders and arms is very obvious.

Keep up the good work and good luck with the new Hockey season and ignore the frickin idiots out here. I have been there people telling me I could never lose weight to just quit. They are real low lives so don't even give them a second thought.,

Thanks everyone, I really do feel awesome now.

So yesterdays exercise breakdown was 20 minutes of cardio and a hike, I'd say about 4 miles.

Today I wil lift when I get home and then play hockey. I have eaten badly today because I didnt have time to pack a lunch, I woke up waayyyy late and had to buy lunch and breakfast at school. A chocolate muffin for breakfast and a bean and cheese burrito for lunch...uggh. Not good. I might do some cardio as well tonight but I down want to wear myself out for hockey. We'll see. I regret having to eat this way today but I had no choice. I'll work extra hard today to burn extra hopefully. I want to mkae it up somehow, I'll pump up my next cardio session and eat strictly. Then again I should stress less, I'll just do better tomorrow. :D

Thanks guys for your support, it really helped. Good luck to everyone with their goals and thanks for supporting me with mine.

Good job on your progress. I think you are making some improvements.

But, just an observation, and I am probably wrong. But does anyone else think her cals maybe to low? Do you add your calories up daily? Good luck.

Goalie_Girl
05-29-2007, 08:42 PM
Maybe my cals are a little low, I've heard that from several people but I feel hungry only occasionally. I'll try totalling up my cals tomorrow and see what happens.

Played my hockey game tonight, and lost terribly, oh well. Hopefully my team will play better next time, the defense was lagging.

I'm hungry, the ice cream from the fridge is calling.....must stay away...ahh. Ah ha! Maybe I'll eat peaches, or maybe not. We'll see. I plan on a long-ish early morning cardio session tomorrow.

Goalie_Girl
05-29-2007, 09:50 PM
Take that ice cream, I can resist temptation now! I have found certain foods help me to satisfy certain cravings. I had a serving of peaches, 100 cals, to satisfy my sweet craving and then a large class of milk, prolly around 200 cals, that helps me to feel full. I'm now satisfied and full. Woo hoo, and I just uppoed my dumbell bent row from a max of 26 to 38, woo hoo 12 pounds, the chart at my bodyspace has it for barbell forw but I just use dumbells for all the exercises. I'll prolly lift a little more tonight and then I have cardio tomorrow morning and then PE at school about an hour later!

heathershubby
05-30-2007, 08:59 AM
a new personal best and resisting ice cream that you have at your house when you have a craving for it. That sounds like some awsome determination and a person who is changing there life. I am very inspired by you today and I really needed it. Up until I read your journal I was having the sheeetiest day I have had in a long time thanks for sharing.

Goalie_Girl
05-30-2007, 07:47 PM
Thanks Heathershubby. I totally fluffed on counting todays calories so I'll do that tomorrow. And I woke up too tired to do cardio before school put I will do it later tonight. Off to eat dinner!

Goalie_Girl
05-30-2007, 10:40 PM
Well, I just finished my homework, so cardio is out of the question for tonight, I only have 20 minutes till bed so, thats pretty much it. I will definately do cardi otomorrow, when? I'm not sure. And I'll try to remember to count my calories tomorrow.

Thanks guys, I'll post my calorie total for today when I'm done eating. So far today has been low because I forgot my snack and lunch for school, but my mom is dropping off a lunch for me, as of now though it is low. I hope I can fit in cardio tonight because I will be at school until late because we are laying out the newspaper, so it might be 9 before I come home, so cardio will have to wait...and I have homework too.

Goalie_Girl
05-31-2007, 03:15 PM
I'll actually be waitng to post my calories tomorrow, today was kind of irregular because my lunch was missing and I'm having my cheat meal tonight. 8) So, I'll post a more regular representation tomorrow! So yeah.

Goalie_Girl
05-31-2007, 08:55 PM
My cheat meal today:

Hamburger (home barbequed)
patato salad
pesto salad
sunchips
root beer, mountain dew
cookies

uggh, I feel bad now, no cheats for a while, and definately none this big anytime soon. So tonight when I get home cardio to the limit baby! I consumed a whole bunch of calories, damn I regret it, I feel worse for cheating then giving up those foods in the first place. Arrgh.

Goalie_Girl
06-01-2007, 05:30 PM

I'm going to postpone weighing myself till next monday...I just have a feeling I gained and I dont want to see the number. :D But in all seriousness I'd like to take another week of working extra hard and then weight myself, not much to report here though.

MilesAway
06-03-2007, 02:39 PM
I'm not weighing myself till next Monday either, so I'm with you there. I blame the hormones though. (sorry, tmi)

And yup, ice hockey goalie (sorry, not roller). Not much is up, I've played two of four games today. One shootout victory and one shutout, to win the tournament. Now off to spare and play a regular season game tonight.

Take care my fellow masked warrior, for we kick butt! (And there aren't that many of us on here)

It's funny you would calee me a masked warrior because Masked_Warrior is my screename for 2 goalie forums. Unfortumeately I have not been kicking but lately, my last 2 games werent that great, mainly for lack of defense though. Oh well, hopefully I will win my nest game on tuesday.

Thanks, who are you on the board? I have a hunch...Well, the bad news is I might not play on tuesday(tomorrow) I had diaharea and vomiting all day today, so I stayed home from school. :( I haven't eaten all day, but I'm starting to feel a little better.

Goalie_Girl
06-05-2007, 01:08 PM
Well, after vomiting and diaharrea all day yesterday I can keep food down again, but I'm having some other trouble. I am eating again but I am not hungry. Everytime I eat I get a few bites through and then I feel naseous and have to stop. I ate maybe 3 bites of a sandwich today and some yogurt. But I'm just not very hungry, what should I do?

Goalie_Girl
06-05-2007, 06:21 PM
Well, I am eating well again, and I have more good news. I broke the ten pound mark! I have lost 11.5 pounds! I'm sure part of that was being sick but I just ate a full meal and then weighed myself, I weigh 152.5, coming from 163.5, 140's here I come! I'll be posting new pics too and I am off to play some hockey.

06-09-2007, 09:47 PM
I've gotten several more mean and hurtful comments to my pictures. Oh well. I dont really care but it seems kind of childish. I dont see anyone else getting targetted. But it kind of sucks, I haven't done anything to anyone else and all I am doing is trying to improve.

Goalie_Girl
06-11-2007, 01:51 PM
I'm sure I'm up from last weigh in, cause I'm not sick and due to stress, bad eating, and almost no time to exercise I have to have gained. But this summer I am starting a new cardio program and I will pretty much exercise twenty four seven. I cant wait cauise I really love to exercise now I just havent had the time withi finals.

Well, the guy that kept harrasig me has been tempororarily banned. I am back up to 155 pounds from 152.5 but I expected that considering last time I weighed myself I was just getting done throwing up. I actually just ate so its prolly a little less. Tomorrow is my last day of school woo hoo! Cant wait to really get in shape over the summer, come augst 31st you guys wont recognize me.

Goalie_Girl
06-14-2007, 02:32 PM
Feeling good, today is the first day of summer! I have already done some arm and back workout. And I am taking a break, then its back to the iron. It's currently in the triple digits temperature wise so I dont really want to do cardio but maybe later tonight towards the evening I will. It's like 100 degrees outside so we'll see how much cardio I get in before I die of heatstroke, lol. I'm gonna drink a lot of water today.

Diet so far today:

Juice, half a quiznos sandwich, yogurt (appx. 700 cal)

MilesAway
06-14-2007, 05:04 PM
Slowly but surely is the way to go.

I know what you mean about the heat. It gets brutally hot in Ottawa (yes, we have summer in Canada, our igloos melt! :p) with the humidity it's horrid. You get sticky just stepping outside, never mind doing any form of cardio.

Keep it up and you'll be turning heads in August.

Goalie_Girl

06-17-2007, 11:09 PM
I've been playing some real good hockey lately. I am not seeing progress though so I am going to try to incorporate a little more HIIT into my cardio and boost my cardio to twice a day. Once fasted in the morning and once after dinner at night. So we'll see. I feel good just not any thinner but that will come with time I suppose. If anyone has some good cardio suggestions I am all ears, I am trying to mix it up lately.

Goalie_Girl
06-18-2007, 10:27 AM
Well, I did my fasted cardio today. It was supposed to be this really intense 15 minute session but about 10 minutes though I felt woozy and had to stop. Then I ate and felt a little better. I may have to eat something small before morning cardio from now on because I need something for energy. I feel good though.

seriously though always have a little somthing there is no proof that fasted cardio burns anymore fat then non fasted or calories for that matter. If for some crazy reason it does I still don't think the results would be that significant to take a chance on making yourslef sick or hurting yourself. I feel a slap shoot from inside the hash lines comming.

Your doing great and cardio is going to really increase you success but you have to do it long enough to see the benefits and 10 mins then sick won't do it.

Take care your still doing great and it sounds like you figured out you need to eat prior to cardio the hard way so get back at it and keep up the great work will rep you when I can YOU ROCK>

06-18-2007, 11:00 AM
Great advice from HH. I did fasted cardio a few times, and I got the woozies. I found that a single scoop of protein in water before cardio helps me. If I eat too much before I hit the cardio, I feel sick.

Thanks for your support everyone, it really means a lot to me. I did a lot of biking yesterday, several hours, several miles, steep hills. It was fun. I feel lighter. But I had my cheat yesterday, 2 brownies. :)

I'm actually feeling good, I have one huge hockey tournament this weekend (3 days) so no cardio or lofting, I gotta save all my strength/energy. Then afterwords I plan on hitting the cardio realy hard. I plan on seeing some good results in the next 2 weeks as long as I can get my insomnia under control and sleep.

Again, thankyou everyone.

I start a new cardio program on wednesday. I've maintained my weight for a bit now, just kinda hovering right around 153-154. I've felt good lately. I'm looking forward to getting back to seriously working out. I'll be playing hockey 2-3 times a week. I also just got my first new job! I'll be working at Longs Drugs part time. I'm excited. I just finished my hockey tournament today (dont ask me how it went) so I'm tired and my groin is really sore. I dont play tomorrow though. So I have two days off and then cardio and lifting. I may do some light lifting tomorrow, we'll see.

Did my cardio again this morning. Tomorrow I play hockey and then again on sunday and monday. I feel pretty good but I've had a lot of back pain lately so I'm not lifting as much.

Boy is it lonely in this journal with no replies....

Oh well, anyway, I've been eating healtheir. More fiber and natural foods and less sugar. I've been cutting my carbs a little and generally just trying to eat healthy. I have been doing my cardio 3 times a week and playing hockey 2-3 times a week as well but I have taken some time off from lifting to readjust my program and round it off some more. I'm making it more intense and tailoring it more to my hockey. I've started ice hockey and so I will be training my legs hard.

This all sounds great like I should be losing but since I'm on my period I have bloated and gained about 3 pounds. You guys probably didn't want to know that but it's true and it happens everytime. I'll be down 3-4 pounds in a few days. I'm really liking this cardio and running with my mom, we have fun together. I'm also looking into buying new dunbells, mine are too light now so I need to get some heavier ones.

I just recently ran into some injuries. I bruised my elbow really bad and my back problem has taken a turn for the worse so I have been sore lately. I'm going to hopefully visit a chiropractor soon and re-visit my podiatrist to discuss possible surgery for the fused bones in my left ankle. It's painful and motion is almost 100% limited side to side now. Porbably not much they cn do now but we'll see. Just going back to see essentially how much worse everything is and also discuss options and get current mri's which is always fun.

In short I have been exercising more, eating better and less and having some injury problems but I feel good and can't wai to jump back into this workout after I finish completing it.

Plyometrics are a good idea. Be careful not to overtrain or burn yourself out with the 7X week plan.

Thanks guys. I'm putting hte finishing touches ony my new hockey workout. I just gotta add the plyomettrics I'll be using as well as ball/agility/reaction drills and I'll be set. I can't wait for next season where I move up to 16U hockey. I'm really gonna strive to be the best and play at the highest level I can. I'm hoping to continue playing ice or roller hockey or both in college so I gotta start really getting serious. Ice hockey is really difficult my groin is sore and I'm having a hard time mastering certain aspects of it but I'm having fun. Ill try to get some pictures to post here soon.

So far todays diet:

Yogurt (100 calories)
5 dried Apricot Pieces (90 calories)
Water

chrischap01
07-04-2007, 03:55 PM
If you are eating a very low calorie diet and you hit a plateau, sometimes it helps if you take a day or so to eat at or above your maintenance calorie level. Most think you should stick to healthy foods on a refeed and just eat more, others think you should eat whatever you want.

Here is an article (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/sclark60.htm) about it!

Still discouraged, I gained like 3 pounds then I lost and now I gained another pound and a half. I have upped my exercise levels and I'm just not losing weight. I'm eating better and more balanced as well. The noonly thing I think may have an impact is that I have skipped breakfast lately. Due to timing and such I have skipped breakfast a a lot lately. But I honestly have no idea why I cant get a steady rate of losing weight going. I am going to keep a food and exercise log for tomorrow and post it here. Maybe that cane help me figure out what's going on with some help from you guys. But it's hard cause lately I've been seriously discouraged, why cant I lose weight? :(

The log is a good idea, if there is a specific problem I am sure someone here can help you correct it. Just be ready that there may be nothing wrong and you me just be at a plateau. If that is the case, just keep doing what you are doing and the fat will start coming off again in time.

I am in the same boat with you and getting a little discouraged myself, but we just have to keep going! I don't think it is possible to eat right, work out, and have a significant daily calorie deficit and stay at the same weight forever. At least I hope it's not!! ;)

Random thoughts.

Perhaps your growing muscle due to your new hockey workout? Do you have BF% measurements to compare against?

What is your daily caloric intake (more or less)?

Using Calorie-Count.com, plugging in your stats, setting a goal weight of 140, I get 1600 calories a day, and hitting 140 on October 2nd.

Its the calculator I've been using, and it has worked for me YMMV, I'm a 37 yo male, so I can't give you apples to apples comparisons.

Jaebeams Tip of the day:

Google Shiritaki noodles.

Kick some hockey butt. I'm skating 1 hour before work, and 1.5 hours after work tomorrow. It will be a good day.

keep your chin up, you are doing well!

There are a lot of tricks to get past a plateau. Do a refeed, take a day or even weekend or week off from your diet, change up your workout (e.g. if you have been lifting more start doing cardio more, or vice versa). Try swimming or running for cardio instead of machines.

And try the detailed logging it will help, and will give people here more ideas about how to help you!

Thanks for the support guys. I'm ready to beat this thing. I finally finished writing up my entire hockey workout and now I have the extra motivation, to get out of this rut! Also tryouts are a mo nth away for roller hockey so it's time to step it up. I think I will try to eat 2000 calories or under a day, just as a base number and see hoe it goes from there. I'll try to keep a log but I hate doing it and never remember anyway. Time to waeigh in for the first time in days, I expect to see gains...154. So up 1.5 pounds off since last time 4 days ago. Whatever though. Today I'm gonna workout hard. And the next day after that. I'm ready to blast myself out of this rut! Hurrah!

So step it up...and don't look back.

chrischap01
07-12-2007, 09:57 AM
2000 calories per day is probably pretty close to your maintenance level, so you may need to scale it back a bit from that. A lot of people use the rule of thumb to stay 500 cals below maintenance to lose. Your ideal intake for fat loss is likely somewhere between 1500 and 1750 calories per day, depending on your level of activity (1500 for moderate daily exercise and 1750 for rigorous daily exercise)

Just remember that these are general guidelines, but everybody is different. You may be able to eat a little more and still lose, or you may need to eat a little less in order to lose. The key is just to find that happy medium where you lose the weight you want to lose, but still feel good and perform at the level you want in your workouts and hockey.

That is where the logs come in. If you keep track of everything, it is much easier to figure out what works best for you!

Tomorrow it all starts, all the hardwork. I ate a little bit of ice creak today as kind of like a parting gift. Buh bye bad food hello stricter diet and a lot more exercise.

Breakfast: Banana, Milk, Almonds

Calories: 320 Calories from Fat: 105 appx.

There ya go folks, breakfast. It looks kinda bad today cause with the milk and almonds combine their is a lot of fat but a lot of that is good fat. So I feel good, I'll prolly drink some water too.

Here's how my meal plan breaks down.

Breakfast
Snack
Lunch
Snack
Dinner

6 meals. 340 cals each appx.= 1700 cals a day.

When I dont eat snacks I can carry over some of those cals to the next meal. Some times like at work I wont be eating snacks, or sometimes I'm just plain not hungry. So here it goes. Today after my first shift at my new job (im excited and oh so nervous) I will come home and work out. I will run, lift, and do plyometrics. Plus I get some exercise from walking to and from work.

I'll log the rest of my meals and my exercise when I can.

My new goal: Lose a much weight as I can before the end of summer. So, that basically just means doing my best. And I can honestly say I wont have aproblem with that! I haven't weighed myself in a while ut I will soon and let you guys know how it's going.

Thanks toobigfred!

Anyway, I have had very little time to exercise lately because I'm being worked to the bone! Lol! But, On monday I leave for disneyland. And I plan to not only vacation but also exercise. I know I'll need it because we dont all eat the best on vacation. I'll be walking a lot everyday and I hope to swim in the hotel pool everyday. Possibly twice, morning and night.

I know the work schedule sounds like a lame excuse but, I have an ankle defect. After standing at a register for 4-8 hours a day and constantly working my feet ache. The cartiledge is missing fom my joint so I also have advanced arthritus in both ankles and flat feet. I wear custom orthodics as well as pysician approved footwear. So basically what I have is called tarsocalcaneal coalition. Meaning the calcaneus and the tarsal joints fused when I was in the womb growing. There is not cartiledge and little mobiility. But the muscles on that side are weak. I limp and can bare almost no weight on my left ankle. My right ankle isn't as bad but is getting worse, so..just letting you know work isn't an excuse for not exercising.

I plan to start exercising after work in a shorter routine than my original draft. I'll work through the pain. I'm still playing hockey 2-3 nights a week and running in the morning when I dont have an early shift at work. Diet has been ok, but not great. Again work has screwed up some of it. But also I'm being a little lazy. I've had to buy fast food twice in the past two weeks because my work shifts changed and I had to work through lunch. Anyhow, that wont happen anymore.

So things are gonna change and in about two weeks when I have fixed the prior mentioned mistakes I will weigh in for you guys.

See ya and thanks for your guys support.

Fast food is not the best option, but if you have to have it just about every place has grilled chicken sandwiches and/or salads, and a lot of places have fruit or other healthy options you can sub for fries. Whenever I have to get fast food I always get a sandwich and diet soda, and occasionally a salad (I only use about 1/4 to 1/3 of the dressing packet). I don't think fast food has screwed up my diet macros once!

Ok. After some bad stuff I'm ready to get back to this diet and workout full time.

Due to some sickness I went through some kind of anxiety. It's hard to explain but I'll do my best. About 2 months ago I got suddenly sick and for one day had lots of vomiting and dihareea. I have always been afraid of throwing up. And I mean afraid. I despise it. So for a while like I said I was plagued with nausea and a hard time eating food, it had continued off and on until today when at a restaurant with my fanily I broke down at the table cause I felt sick. I went outise to get some fresh air and my mom came out. She had noticed my poor eating recently. I cried for a bit and had a talk with her. I guess I am traumatized by throwing up, I've had bad experiences with it since I was young. My mom and I had a talk. Apparently lately since my sickness whenever I think about eating or getting nauseas I feel like I'm going to throw up. So I haven't been able to eat well on and off lately. My mom talked to me about overcoming this and just sitting down and eating and not thinking about it. And I did and I ate a good portion. I know this sounds really dumb but it's true. I know lately I have posted a lot of things about my difficulties in losing weight but I'll be ok from now on. I'm not trying to make excuses or anything. So that is the latest update. I'm tired.

Thanks for listening everyone. Send me your luck. Next time I weigh in I will be smaller.

So tomorrow I wont workout in the morning cause I work at 9. But on day's where I work till 6 I'll work out for an hour, shower and then head to work. Hockey tryouts are in about a month and a half.

My weight workouts last on average an hour and 10 min at most, and my cardio is never longer than 45 min. I think anything longer for weights is detrimental, and cardio I would say an hour at the most . But that is MY opinion.

LOL :D

My workout session used to last 2 hours and I found that was too long...way too long.
Went back to the drawing board, reduce the rest time, cut some workouts and added others, now my lifitng period last about 1 hour....1 hour and 30 minutes if I have to change my routine or weight for a bench or squat rack

I've ate well today and walked some. I play hockey tonight for the first time in 2.5 weeks. I'm nervous but very excited and anxious.

I figure I'd post my workout. I haven't switched to this one yet but once I'm no longer sick I'm gonna jump right into this. During my less busy time with hockey I'll be doing this 5 times a week. When it gets busier it may be as little as 2-3. I will do it any day I'm not playing hockey. I'm hoping it'll take approximately 65-85 minutes. Here it is:

N times a week, rest days are hockey days
Typical workout like this usually includes:
? 15 minute warm-up on stationary bike(or run) + stretching
? One set of Plyo?s (Set A or B)+ One of the exercise days below(Day 0-4)
? 10 minute cooldown on stationary bike(or run) + stretching

Day 0:

Wall squat. Squat against the ball. Keep you back straight and use appropriate weights.

Hip extension knee flexion. Start from your back and first straighten your body and get your back off from the floor. Next bend your knees and last bring the ball back towards you as close as you can get it. Then bring it back and repeat the move.

1-Leg squat. Keep your back leg on top of the ball as far as possible while squatting. Coach can help the proper movement by keeping the ball away from getting too close to the goalie. As your goalie advances you can add a small balance board under the front foot too.

Angled 1-leg wall squat. Keep your inner foot off from the ground while squatting with outer foot and body angled as in the photos.

Medicine ball lunge. Pass the medicine ball to the coach or your goalie partner while performing a forward lunge step. Ball will be passed back to you as you push back up. You can do this either with one leg at the time or alternate the leg that comes forward.

Leg blaster. bring the ball as far as possible from your body and then back to as close as possible while maintaining as hard pressure as you can on the ball by pushing it down with your leg. This is one of the best moves for goalies.

Stomach & back. Finish your round always with set of stomach and back crunches.


Plyos:

4x a week:

Hey folks. I havent been around lately but her I am. Tryouts went well. I made 2 teams, i tryed out for two. I picked one and now its time to really kick it into gear to get into the best shape I can this season. I'd like a national championship so bad this year.

So I'm going to workout on monday. I wish I could work out earlier but I literally work all weekend. Then I have a lot of studying but I'm gonna try my best. So wish me luck!

I picked up my resistance bands yesterday and tried em out. As I was using them all I could think about was it snapping and causing bodily harm, lol. But it seems like a good piece to add to my home gym. I will probably get higher resistance ones later. I'll probably work out tonight, but if I am too sore from work I'll do it saturday morning.

Wo hoo. I just finished a chest/back and abs workout. It was good.

I did that on an empty stomach and now I just ate a slimfast optima bar and drank some muscle milk. Calorie totals:

350 calories
135 cals from fat
23g protein

I'd like to buy some protein towards the end of this week. I'm gonna go for some optimmum nutrition 100% whey in chocolate flavor.
Plus I have a shopping list, here it is:

Oatmeal
natural peanut butter
strawberries
carrots
fish oil
protein bars
muscle milk
protein powder
chicken breast
eggs
tuna/chicken salad(no mayo)

Let me know if there is more I should add to it.

Alright, I do have some broccoli, lettuce and spinach. I'll pick up some tomato and soybeans too, maybe some peas and corn but not too much as those are kind of sugary.

I also took a multi vitamin today. Other than that, protein powder, and fish oil is there anything else I would need supplement wise?

Goalie_Girl
10-03-2007, 06:58 PM
So I have worked out 3 times in the last 3 days, and i took a day off cause was sore. And now I'm about to work out again. So yeah. I'm stoked. I think I need to eat more though cause I'm hungry a lot, so I'm gonna drink more and up my protein intake.

Goalie_Girl
10-03-2007, 11:25 PM
Worked out again after having yesterday off. Good thing I did cause I felt rested and well for tonights workout. So yeah, I did arms and shoulders today. I'll try to wiegh myself tomorrow morning. Its been well over a month since I weighed myself. Tomorrow I have yoga, possibly some cardio in the early morning.

Goalie_Girl
10-10-2007, 11:18 PM
I gained 10 pounds for some reason, its weird my weight can fluctuate really quickly. I admit I wasnt the best with my diet, but not that bad. I have also put on some noticable size in my arms and back. I am now going to very strictly stick to my diet so I can shed some more fat and show off my new muscles.

FrostFox
10-10-2007, 11:47 PM
Don't worry about it. Rarely is weight loss completely linear in the downward direction. Or it can be something else, like water retention. Maybe you depleted your body's supply of glycogen, causing your weight to fall when in reality there was no fat loss and you finally filled it back up. In any case, you should be more worried about your measurements and not a number on a scale. Scale weight should just be a general barometer - a tool which you use to see in general how you are doing. The measuring tape is what tells the true story.

It is only through prolonged effort that we finally reach our goals. I know you'll reach yours, Goalie girl. :)

10-21-2007, 02:39 PM
So after a 10 pound gain I mentioned above I am back into this thing. Tomorrow I start a super clean diet for two weeks. Very clean eating. And then after 2 weeks depending on my progress I will modify it. So expect 2to see a new me in two weeks. I'll will be keeping a log this time for sure. My new goal is to be at 140 in 6 weeks. Right now I'm in roughly the 162-165 range. Something like that. And let me tell you I am really ashamed of myself for letting myself fall all the way back. But obviously I struggle with this and that is why I got here in the first place. So I roughyl would like to lose at least 20 pounds in 6 weeks. 42 days for 20 pounds. Thats roughly .48 pounds a day. 3.3 pounds week, yes a lofty goal but I am NOT messing around this time. I plan to be exercising 6 days a week. Possibly 7. Hockey will be 3 times a week with workouts(cardio, yoga, weight lifting, etc.) the other 3 or four. Yoga days will count as rest days. So tomorrow morning I weigh myself and I'll start my log. My reward if I meet my goal....new clothes! Woot. I'm tired of wearing baggy t-shirts to hid my frame. Good by old clothes!

You guys better get ready! ;)

I think I'm really gonna do it this time. I am super motivated and I wont let anything stand in my way. I think in just the past two weeks my waist has reduced significantly. I weigh in on monday...and I hope to have lost at least 4 pounds this week cause I worked hard.

I've got 30-35 pounds to lose approximately. My goal is to do that in 13 weeks. Thats about 2.69 pounds per week. I would be stoked if I could do it faster thatn that though. I lost 2.5 pounds last week, so I guess I'm on pace.
I dont really have a specific number but I want to get in the healthy age range for my height and I have a look I want to acheive.

I worked out chest and back today as well as abs. I feel like I may have lost muscle mass since I took a few weeks of eating right because the number of pushups I ccan do has been reduced significantly. I dont feel as strong in that area whichis kind of a bummer but oh well. I 'm gonna work on it everday.

So yeah, yesterday I weighed in with a 2 pound loss for the week, total loss of 4.5 pounds in two weeks. I am hoping for a 3 next week.

I know it was my fault but I couldnt stop myself. Oh well. A mistake is a mistake. I'll just have to keep going. Your first mistake is never the one that breaks a diet! I'm off to workout.

I am, I'll let you guys in on my workout plan in a little bit, I wanna do it a little longer before I get too happy about it.

But, I'm definately seeing (and feeling) some major results. I'm gonna skip the workout today too because I'm still sore and I have hockey tomorrow. I'll do some cardio when I get home though. I've been keeping up well with my diet. And I hope to lose another 2-3 pounds this week. Who knows, I cheated so we'll see.

Good to hear others around here are doing well. I'll take some picturese as soon as my camera is charged.

Goalie_Girl
11-10-2007, 10:42 PM
Well, I weigh in on monday again. I cheated a few times this week but I feel ok. I really felt like I needed it. It definately will not be the same next week.

Playing hockey lately. I'm doing well. I'm faster and getting better push out of my legs.

I was wondering what the healthiest way to cheat a little was because my weakness is chocolate. If I didnt crave it so much I wouldnt cheat. I was thinking a few dark chocolate covered almonds every few days? Or a square of dark chocolate?

I would love some input.
