I just finished lunch, and boy is my jaw tired!  HAHAHAHAHAHA ... sigh.  Ok, I'll admit it; terrible joke.

Anyway, chiming in with a status.  Food is going all right, except I'm still having trouble remembering to eat my "leftovers."  Like, my breakfast is yogurt, toast and fruit.  I'll eat the toast and be full, and then forget to eat the yogurt and fruit later.  I'm trying, though.

My workouts are being somewhat hampered by my husband being out of shape, and me wanting to have him do this with me so I don't have to listen to him whine.  So Monday was a gym day, but he was still sore, so I did the home workout I posted previously, but with my stationary bike instead of a jump rope.  Then yesterday was supposed to be a run day, but it was also my brother in law's birthday, so by the time I got home I had a house full of people and my husband wouldn't go.  I suspect the people were an excuse for him to be lazy.  So I swaped yesterday (run day) with today (rest day).  So I'm going running tonight.  And I don't care about his petty petty whining.

How's everyone doing?  I did pretty well this weekend, and I've already lost two pounds.  I went off diet a bit at the craft fair, but I just subtracted it from my dinner calories and it all worked out.

And I feel like a god, because my husband is doing this with me, and it turns out I'm in better shape than him.  I always feel inferior to him; he's better at yoga than me, he goes faster on the elliptical (but not as long), he can lift ungodly amounts of weight.  And even running, he just had to run about twice as fast as me.

And then he couldn't move the next day.  Ditto for run number 2,  But I was JUST FINE.  heeheehee

Additional Training Resource
I came up with a home cross training program for anyone that can't get to the gym and wants to give it a shot.  It's in the same place your training plan was and is called HomeCrossTraining.

Howdy, lov-e-lies.  How did everyone do with food yesterday?  I did:

I had problems eating all the food I was supposed to eat.  And then I ate that donut.  WTF?  I will never actually understand how my brain works.  I also noticed that the food I didn't want to eat was the dairy.  I'm not lactose intolerant, so I wonder what's up with that.

Anyway, yoga was FANTASTIC, and I feel pretty good this morning, so something must be right.  Tonight I run (yay!) and then tomorrow mornign I go to the gym for cross training.  I'm gonna try to see if someone will show me how to do the rowing machine.  I know it isn't hard, but I'm always afraid I'm gonna look stupid.

9:07 am

Of course, it doesn't feel like anything has started since my yoga class is at NIGHT.  But I'm on the path.  And I'm really looking forward to the running tomorrow, thought that will also be at night since dragging ym ass out of bed more than 15 minutes before I have to leave for work is not an option.

How bout you guys?  Do you prefer AM or PM exercise?

Rules, application, etc...

This group is for an 8 week diet and training program, starting September 27, 2007, designed to help you get from the inactive to a 5k race on Thanksgiving morning, and lose weight doing it. Many cities have a Turkey Trot.

The only purpose of the application is so I can get the information I need to tailor your program - all applications are accepted.  Please do not apply if you are not prepared to check in at least once a week. I also ask that you refrain from any negative, immature, abusive or "thinspirational" posts.

This program is not designed for anyone who is obese according to the standard BMI calculations, unless your BMI is off due to muscle mass. It is also dependent on you starting from a very basic level of fitness - if you can’t walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded, this is not for you. As always, please consult a doctor prior to starting any diet or fitness program.

Additionally, while the program could be adapted for Vegetarians quite easily, the original program has you eating fish and poultry, but not mammals.

WARNING: This diet is a very low calorie diet. Many health professionals would call it a "starvation" diet. However, it is a step in the healthy direction for anyone trying to recover from an eating disorder.

Once you email me with your specific information, I will give you your calorie allowances and diet.  Here is an example:

Breakfast - 1 slice Nature’s Own double fiber toast; ½ tablespoon Land O’ Lakes light butter; ½ cup lowfat yogurt; 1 small banana [Total 287 cals]
Lunch - 1 ½ cups mixed salad (veggies only), 1 ounce cheese, 3 ounces chicken [Total 241 cals]
Snack - 1 Rice Cake [Total 35 cals]
Dinner allowance - 549 cals

The idea being that breakfast and lunch are planned, with dinner being based on preference and social schedule.  The calorie allowance depends on that days training activities.

The training schedule is 3 days 5k training, 3 days other exercise, and 1 day rest.  If you belong to a gym, great.  If not, the other three days should be used doing a different type of cardio (biking, swimming, jump rope) and some basic strength training and stretching. Yoga or palates work quite well, too.

Send me the following information:
