    Still plugging away ladies! I just changed up my diet a bit to see if it sparks me to get over my weight loss hump. I'm actually trying to eat more! I usually stick to around 1200-1400 calories per day...but that's usually in 3 meals and just a few small snacks. Now I'm eating 5 times a day (4-200 calorie meals) and dinner is around 400. I'm down to about 115 or so and trying to just get really fit/toned for my BD pics in 3 weeks. I'm still working out about 5-6 days a week for 1.5 hrs.

    So far so good.....I'm not hungry all the time and I feel more energized. I'm trying to eat more protein and good carb combos....so here is what I'm eating on most days: These are all of the options...I choose one from each category

    Meal 1: 8:00; choose 1
    *strawberries and carb control vanilla yogurt; venti sf hazelnut americano (200 or so)
    *1 cup light cereal and light vanilla soymilk (200 cal)
    *1/2 cup natural oats made with vanilla soymilk & water (200 cal)
    Meal 2: 10:30/10:45
    *cottage cheese and grapes (200 cal)
    *cottage cheese and 5 Akmak crackers (200 cal)
    *South beach high protein bar (140 cal) and 60 cal light string cheese
    Meal 3: 12:30
    *healthy soup (200)
    *frozen meal (usually find ones around 180 cal) with frozen veggies added (200)
    *low carb wrap (80 cal) with Hormel natural turkey (60 cal) lettuce, tomato, bit of balsamic salad dressing/ff mayo (200 or so)
    *tuna mixed with low cal balsamic dressing on sliced cucumers or stuffed into a tomato (so yummy) (200 cal)
    Meal 4: 4:00: pretty much same everyday
    *organic apple with 100 cal 17gram protein shake (I want to say the are body for life vanilla flavored...really tasty)
    Meal 5: 7:00
    *dinner is totally random; most nights its bbq chicken/teriyaki chicken on bbq with steamed brocoli
    *taco salad (healthy version with ground chicken breast)
    *grilled salmon (FI fishes almost every weekend off the coast) and veggies
    *mahi with mango salsa and ff sour cream (buy mahi at costco-individually frozen)
    *black bean soup with fresh lime and ff sour cream--I have a recipe I make from scratch that bomb


    That's about it....I'll let you know if it makes me lose any more weight. Like I said...I already eat about 1200 or so calories a day, this is just trying to make my body always full and burning calories. We'll see.

      Amy - all you did was make me hungry!! JK. That sounds great. I know when I switched to 5 meals a day I lost weight. Love it!

      I did 55 minutes of cardio this morning.

        I was supposed to go to the gym last night, but I was not feeling well at all, really nauseous for some reason. So I skipped the gym last night, but I am seeing my trainer tonight.

            I have been so good with working out that its scary.lol Last night I did my crosstrainer and then I did my arms/legs/abs with weights. Today Rayden and I went for a really long walk then ran around the park and the soccer field. Ive also stopped "bad snacking" I made some yummy yogurt pops and I made ice cubes with lemonade. So if I dont feel like water I just pop 2 cubes in my glass and it gives off some great lemon flavour!! Im so proud of myself for keeping up with working out!

              Great Job Laura! Thats such a good idea to do the lemon ice cubes. I'm trying that! Keep it up! It feels so good when you finally start seeing your hard work paying off!

                  Going to have to take today off.. Too much work. I did work out yesterday: 20 minute run on the treadmill, and 30 minute session with my trainer. I have lost 3lbs... (not much), but I lost an inch off my chest and an inch off my waist.. My FI told me I need to figure out how to put the inches together and take it off my waste.. and to keep the chest as it is, lol! Dream on buddy. If he wants the chest he'll have to drop the cash, and pay for some

                      I went to see my trainer again last night. I just don't see the numbers on the scale moving much. I can tell that I am firmer and stronger, but I need to weight to go as well. So, I am a little stressed. I need to do more cardio on my own time and watch what I eat. With only 2 months and 1 week to go you think I would care more about what I put in my mouth, but I am having a hard time with it.
