    Starting this week, I go from 5 days of lifting to 3. I'm trying to shake it up a bit :o my hour of cardio and 45 minutes of lifting a day isn't working anymore.

    To start the week off: 3.25 mile run today.
    Running intervals: 10, 3, 5, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1 (last 4 intervals all out sprints)
    Rest intervals: all 1 minute

    Split is going to be: MWF full-body, light cardio to warm up
    T/Th/S Running

    I'm also hoping by splitting up my running and weights they'll both improve since I won't be worn out by the time I get to one after the other.

    Today's workout:
    30 minutes elliptical
    deadlifts: 5x5x155
    leg press: 2x10x115, 3x10x125
    dbell bench press: 5x10x30
    ball crunches: 15, 12, 10

    Could have gone up more apparently on the leg press and the dbell press :p
    Back on the PSMF! So far today:

    1. 7 a.m. 1 cup cottage cheese
    2. 10 a.m. 1 can albacore tuna
    3. 12:30 p.m. house salad, no dressing, large chicken breast w/roasted garlic and balsamic vinegar (slight digression but I had a business lunch I couldn't get out of, still within my vague boundaries)
    3.5. 3 p.m. 2 cups spinach with vinegar dressing (Maple Farms balsamic dressing, very very low calorie and nummy)
    4. 4:30 p.m. 2 sticks string cheese, 1 granny smith (preworkout)
    5. 8 p.m. 4 chicken tenderloins, 2 cups spinach, 1/2 cup f.f. cheese

    Lots of water, diet coke, green tea, hoodia with each meal, 3 grams C, multivitamin. Feel a little hungry but I'm good. There will probably be a sugar-free icecream bar tonight :o It's not strict PSMF but it's 60 calories and 6 grams of fiber so what the hell; if it keeps me from binging or wanting to (which it does) I figure it's better than the alternative.

    Tuesday April 26th
    Running:
    3.6 miles in 40 minutes (laugh, laugh)
    Intervals of: 10, 7, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1 (rest intervals 1 minute)

    Post-running: 20 minutes incline walking

    Food Log:
    1. 7 a.m. 1 cup cottage cheese, cinnamon, splenda, hoodia, 1 g C
    2. 10 a.m. 1 can albacore w/ white worcestshire sauce, hoodia, 1 g C
    3. 2:30 p.m. 4 chicken breast strips, broccoli w/lemon pepper, multi, hoodia
    4. 4:30 p.m. 2 sticks string cheese, 1 granny smith, hoodia
    5. 8:30 p.m. Chicken, steak, ff cheese, mushrooms w/butter spray, smidge BBQ sauce..MM! :p

    Extras: 2 T ff cool whip, 1 sf No-Pudge bar (skinny piggah bar!)
    Drinks: pepsi one, diet coke, green tea, water. Lots of it, too.

    I feel really good today. It felt weird not lifting, but I'm so much less tired in the evening without the hour of cardio, hour of lifting routine. Less hungry too. Holy crap, brainstorm! Could it be that doing less cardio could help me be less hungry?

    I will say that hoodia is nice. It doesn't completely take away my hunger but it takes the edge off it enough that I can ignore it instead of wanting nothing but more food.

    I'm nervous :noes: I am seriously paranoid that I won't be able to hack tweaking my diet enough to replace ~60 minutes of cardio every day + an hour of lifting. But the 2 hour workouts weren't WORKING so something has to change..I'm just skurrd!

    Bosses pissed me off today >< However, I consequently had a grrreat run because of it and ended up giggling inside since I can give notice and move to a nice sunny state in a month..and they'll still be freezing their butts off in Yankeedom.

    Running:
    Intervals: 5x5 minutes running, 1 minute walking (6.1-6.4 mph, starting at 6.1 ending at 6.4 by end of 5 minutes)
    10 minutes to fill out the distance: 3, 2, 1, 1, 1 (6.3-6.6 mph)
    3.73 miles in 40 minutes
    20 minutes incline walking @ 3mph

    Food Log
    7 a.m. 1 cup ff cottage cheese/cocoa/splenda/cinnamon, hoodia, 1 g C, benefiber
    10 a.m. 1 can albacore, drizzle sesame oil, salt/pepper, hoodia
    1:30 p.m. 1 chicken breast w/dijon-worcestshire sauce, 1 cup broccoli, 2 cups spinach/mushroom salad with low-cal viniagrette dressing, multi, hoodia
    4:30 p.m. 2 sticks string cheese, 1 large granny smith
    7 p.m. 2 low-carb pitas (Thomas', good stuff! supposedly 10gr protein each, hah), 1 cup ff cottage cheese/cocoa/splenda/cinnamon

    Extras: 1 hershey's kiss, 2 SF popsicles..and I snuck in a pizza crust, naughty me
    Drinks: dp, dp , dp, 32 oz water, 24 oz water, green tea

    Nutrition thoughts: I nibble too damn much ><
    Training thoughts: I just realized my current plan of 3 full-body workouts, 3-4 days running will KILL my legs. Going to leave legs on just one, *maybe* 2 days a week. My knees will probably thank me.

    Friday April 29

    20 minutes elliptical, 5 minutes walking- felt dizzy today
    cable row- 12x70, 3x10x80
    hammerstrength chest press- 2x12x35lb plates, 2x10x35lb plates
    barbell squats- 10x95, 3x10x115 (gogo competitive lifting with the BF!)
    machine flye-4x12x50
    pulldown-12x90,3x10x90

    Oof.

    Food Log:
    7 a.m. cottage cheese/splenda/cinnamon/cocoa, 1 g C, hoodia
    10:30 a.m. 1 can albacore, hoodia
    2 p.m. 1 chicken breast, spinach and mushroom salad, 2 hoodia caps, 8 SF lifesavers that gave me the worst tummy ache EVER leading to me skipping meal #4, which is probably why I was dizzy at the gym
    8 p.m. Free meal yay! BBQ chicken/steak, big buttered sourdough roll, triple chocolate hot fudge pudding cake in the oven atm :p

    Nutrition thoughts: Isomalt is BAD. Very, very bad. No more of that crap.
    Training thoughts: I'll back off on the legs next week. I'm toying with the idea of on each training day, putting a slight bit more emphasis on one body part while keeping it a fullbody workout. For example, 3 back exercises on Monday, 3 chest on Wednesday, 3 leg on Friday (with no legs Monday and Wednesday). We'll see.

    Saturday April 30

    6 intervals: 5 min running 6.1-6.4 mph, 1 min walking 3.0 mph
    2 sprints of 1 min- 7 mph, 8 mph
    3.74 miles in 40 minutes

    Extras: 1 T pb/vanilla icecream, 3 SF popsicles..and a handful of sugar-free gummy bears and jelly bellies, bah! At least I had the sugar-free ones. I hope the mall walking canceled them out some ><

    Drinks: diet soda, green tea, fake lemonade with splenda and real-lemon (I'm stretching here our city water sucks and we have no filter)

    Later that night:
    Public Service Announcement: After having a cheat meal the night before, DESTROY all evidence and leftovers, or you will find yourself in a terrible temper tantrum because you walked into the kitchen for a drink before bed and instead ended up face-first in the trough, peanut butter in one hand and icecream in another.

    !@(#*!@#

    However, one decent pic that came out today; provided I'm not totally bloated tomorrow [​IMG] I may take some kinda-sorta-progress pics in less clothing and a better position.

    dbell shoulder press- 3x10x25, 8x25

    Both of us are benefiting from the full-body workouts, thank goodness. He finds it easier, says he feels like it's more synergistic than split days, and I just haven't done it in a while so it's a nice change

    Food log:
    7 a.m.- 1 cup ff cottage cheese, splenda/cocoa/cinnamon/benefiber, 1 g C, 3 cod oil, 1 hoodia
    10:30 a.m.- 1 can albacore, 1 hoodia

    7:45 p.m.- 1 small chicken breast (6 oz??), spinach, VLC dressing, 1/4 cup ff cheese

    Drinks: DP, DP, diet lemonade, 24 oz water,24 oz water, 20 oz AZ green tea
    Extras:10 sf jelly beans, 1 sf fudge bar, sf jello

    1 slice ff cheese (30 calories, 5 gr protein) before bed..I was feeling starveded.

    I feel tee-riffic! If every day is like this I'll be gtg. I made a big bucket of SF jello to keep in the fridge for those times I have the mindless nibble urge; hopefully I'll remember to grab that and nibble till I wake up and go oh darn stop eating, and I won't have done any damage.

    Tuesday May 3rd

    Where has the year gone *eek!* Time is flying.

    Today's workout: Running
    6x (5 minutes running 6.1-6.4 mph, 1 min walking 3 mph)
    + 1 3-min interval running 6.3-6.4 mph, 1 min walking 3 mph
    + 3 1-minute slacker sprints- 6.5, 7.0, 7.5 mph with 2 1 min walking breaks
    15 minutes walking 3.0 mph on a slight incline
    Total: 4.20 miles in 45 minutes

    Food Log
    7 a.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese, splenda/cinnamon/cocoa/benefiber, 1 hoodia, 1 g C, 3 cod oil
    10:45 a.m.) 1 can albacore, 1 T ff miracle whip, 1 hoodia, multi
    2:30 p.m.) 5 oz (?) chicken, 1/4 cup ff cheese, spinach w/ VLC dressing, 1 hoodia, 1 g C
    4:15 p.m.) 1/3 cup ff cottage cheese, splenda/cocoa/cinnamon/benefiber, 1 apple
    7:45 p.m.)1 cup ff cottage cheese,cocoa/vanilla/splenda/cinnamon/benefiber
    9 p.m.) 2 cups SF jello, 4 T ff cool whip

    Extras: 4 gummi bears, 1 bite icecream bar evil lady at work waved under my nose, pickle :p mm, pickles!
    Drinks: standards: DP, DC, green tea, green tea, water, water...

    Nutrition thoughts: Damn, I feel good! I need to curb the nibbling though I'm bad about that. I'm surprised by how little hunger I feel, evening is the worst but keeping the SF jello around is a complete lifesaver. I bought about 10 boxes on sale today I ran out of spinach, durnit, or I would've eaten more. Then the grocery store had none today. Jersey's grocery stores are HORRIBLE about veggies, it's ridiculous. Saddest produce sections I've ever seen. Pickles are good crunchy snack..dill, naturally. Is there any fiber in a pickle, incidentally? Just wondering.


    Training thoughts: Running is SO much easier than I thought it would be. I'm discovering that running easy intervals means I cover more ground and am less exhausted at the end; I normally have a tendency to try to run all out for as long as I can at the beginning and then after a mile or so I have to kick my ass to get through.

    And now I'm going to go buy stock in Trojans.

    Josh is afraid his legs are going to get big..he informed me tonight he doesn't want to go any heavier on squats. I'm..really not sure how to respond to this coming from a guy *chuckles*

    Food Log
    8 a.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/the usual
    12 p.m.) 1 can albacroe w/VLC greek dressing
    1 p.m.) leafy greens w/VLC dressing, 1/4 cup ff cheese
    4 p.m) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/the usual
    8p.m.) 2 low-carb pitas, 4 slices ff cheese, 4 oz deli meat, greens, 1.5 pickles

    Later on tonight: sugar-free brownies and low-calorie icecream. I decided not to do what I've done before with free meals..I'm pretty much keeping it low-key instead of going all out, so we'll see how it goes.
    Experiment today: Taking hoodia between meals, rationale being that I'm not hungry for a bit after meals so maybe by alternating meals/hoodia I can extend the sated feeling. Worked VERY well, better than taking it with meals. Took 2 caps 3x today.

    Supplements: 2 hoodia caps 3x (7 a.m., 10 a.m., 2 p.m.)
    6xfish oil, 3 g C, 1 calcium

    Three notes for today:

    It's working. I think. It's slow, I know I haven't been perfect on it, but I think I'm getting it down, my calories have been 700-1000 every day, down from 1400-1800 before. So WHY is the scale not budging?? Is it because I switched up my lifting? Pants are definitely looser and tummy is flatter so whatever, but it would be nice to be below 160 pounds. Not that anyone ever believes I weigh that much. Gogo soccer thighs!!

    Anyhoo, the notes:
    1) Doing the cheat meal with low-carb bread (which still has plenty of carbs) and the fat-free/sugar-free desserts really helped. I didn't pig out as much and I have no residual fat-tummah today.

    2) Why am I cold?? I'm never cold..I'm always the one wearing tank tops the minute it hits 50 degrees, can't stand blankets at night. But this week, second week of really cutting calories..I'm FREEZING. I get home from work, put on sweatpants and long sleeves, and drink tea all evening.

    3) Other than the cold, I feel GREAT. I feel alert, mood has improved, workouts are awesome..I would not have expected this. For some reason, protein and veggies really agrees with me. Yay!

    you may feel cold because your calories are too low, its affecting your metabolism/body temp.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking..it just seems rather fast to have any sort of metabolic slow-down :dunno:

    Pre-run (10 a.m.) 12.5 mg ephedrine, 200 mg caffeine, 250 mg hoodia, 1 g C
    12:15 p.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/the usual, 3x fish oil

    Wee..ephedrine, caffeine and hoodia..almost no hunger today. Noice! Run was terrific, I felt SO good. I want to just go out tomorrow and walk somewhere, maybe go downtown if it's not raining, get some coffee, whatever. I just don't want to lie around the house all day even if it is technically a day off.

    EDIT: Verrrry twitchy legs tonight..haven't had this in a long time.

    Tuesday May 10th

    Run: Treadmill, 0.5%
    The AC at the gym was broken; run was fucking brutal..but I did it :p a little slower than usual. Couldn't stop cramping afterwards, I decided to go ahead and start my two-cheat-meals-a-week this week.

    7x(5 min running, 1 min walking)- last walking interval 2 minutes
    1x(3min running)
    TOTAL: 4.31 miles in 46 minutes (6.1-6.2 mph)
    4 minutes walking cooldown

    7 a.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/the usual, 3xfish oil,1 g C
    9 a.m.) 12.5 mg E, 200 mg caffeine, 250 mg hoodia, 1 g C
    11 a.m.) 3 oz chicken, apple
    12 p.m.) 12.5 mg E, 200 mg caffeine, 250 mg hoodia, 1 g C
    1 p.m.)3.8 oz chicken
    2 p.m.) 2 cups leafy greens w/VLC dressing, 1/4 cup ff cheese

    Things of note: CRAMPS. Omfg..teh pain! >< Feet have been spazzing, tonight I got a charley horse like whoa. I would think I'm getting plenty of calcium..maybe it's an EC thing? I also probably got a wee bit dehydrated; after the run I weighed in at 158 pounds :p

    ANNND..I fit back into my post-college, pre-birth control favourite pair of pants today! There was much rejoicing.

    Tired as hell today for some reason. Workout was ugh, gym was 77 degrees and packed like a sardine can. I took it out on the unwitting asshole who told me I need to stop lifting so much so my legs don't look so manly [​IMG]

    Anyways..
    30 minutes elliptical
    Pushups- 15,12,9,8
    Assisted pullups- 8x70, 3x6x90 (weight given being the machine setting so yes, weaker as I went along)
    Split squats- 10x55, 3x10x45
    Cable flye- 4x10x35
    High cable pull- 4x10x40
    Zottman curls- 4x10x15

    Food Log:
    7 a.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/the usual, 3xfish oil, 1 g C
    9 a.m.) 12.5 mg E, 500 mg hoodia, 200 mg caff, 1 Ca/Mg
    11:30 a.m.) 1 can albacore, 2 cups broccoli slaw, 1 g C, 2 Ca/Mg
    2:30 p.m.) 1/2 a baja fresh bare chicken burrito- no rice, no beans- just chicken, peppers and pico de gallo. No clue on the calories, apparently though 1 serving of their chicken is 230 calories so..I'm guessing 200ish calories given all the tommytoes
    4:15 p.m.)12.5 mg E, 500 mg hoodia, 200 mg caff, 1 g C
    7:30 p.m.) 2 high-protein pitas, 2 slices ff cheese, greens

    Pre-bed: 3x fish oil, 2 Ca/Mg, 1 g C, and the new OC. Ugh. I'm stressing about this. Oh well, preggers would be more stress soooo..

    Extras: 2 cups sf jello, 2 sf popsicles, 1 sf fudge bar, 1 pickle
    Drinks: the usual diet soda-crystal light-water-rinse-repeat.

    Weight back up to 160 [​IMG] But definite tummy improvements.

    Thursday May 12th- is it Friday yet?

    Treadmill run @ 0.5% incline
    7 times (5 minutes running, 1 minute walking) 6.1-6.4 mph
    1 times (4 minutes running) 6.1-6.5 mph
    Total: 4.37 miles in 46 minutes
    4 minutes walking cooldown

    Food Log:
    7 a.m.) 1 cup ff cottage cheese w/ the usual, 3xfish oil, 1 g C, 2 Ca/Mg
    9 a.m.) 12.5 mg E, 200 mg caff, 500 mg hoodia, 1 g C
    11 a.m.) 5 oz chicken, 1/4 cup ff cheese, pico de gallo, multi
    2:45 p.m.) 1 can albacore w/mustard and worcestshire white
    4:15 p.m.) 12.5 mg E, 200 mg caff, 500 mg hoodia, 1 g C
    7:30 p.m.) 5 oz chicken with jerk seasoning, 3xfish oil, 1 g C, 2 Ca/Mg

    Drinks: Same old drill as usual, boys!
    Extras: Apple, 4 sf popsicles, 2 cups sf jello, 1 sf fudge bar

    Nota bene: Overdoing even mild jerk seasoning will leave SUCH a fire in your mouth as cannot be quenched..hence the inordinate amount of popsicles!

    Hoodia is definitely working better for me in larger doses.
