Week 3, Day 1

Despite sleeping poorly (due to troublesome toddlers) I popped out of bed early, full of energy and in a great mood. THANKS, CARBS!

One annoyance -- I went out to lunch with a friend and looked at the menu ahead of time to find something RFL-friendly. But then when I got there I accidentally ordered the wrong thing (in my defense the menu on the wall had no descriptions and vague names like "Chicken Fantastic"). I got a huge bowl of rice with a little chicken and zucchini loaded with alfredo sauce and parmesan cheese. (Alfredo sauce at a Somali restaurant -- unexpected to say the least.) If it had been good I would have just eaten it and called it a free meal but it was pretty bland. So I attempted to pick out the chicken and zucchini and scrape the sauce off, and hoped my friend didn't think I was completely disordered. :P Kept to straight veg and protein powder the rest of the day.

Food:
- sad lunch above
- pound of green beans with hot sauce
- microwave pp cake
Came in a little short on protein because I was stuffed. Will have more tomorrow.

Exercise:
I rested longer between sets and that seemed to help a lot. Although I rested TOO long and it ended up taking forever. Gotta find a happy medium!
- Squats 4xbar -- I just wanted to see if I could do them, and I could! Four in a row! With what felt like decent form!
- Goblet squats 3x12x20#db
- Bench press 3x12x45# (bar)
- One-arm DB row 1x15x15#, 2x15x20#
- Supermans 3x15
- 35 minutes easy walking on treadmill

I felt totally hardcore, hahaha.

Week 3, Day 2

I've been stalled at 140 for five days now. But I haven't pooped in a week, so no mystery there. Gotta be more diligent with the Miralax and the water intake. If nothing happens in a few days I'll add sorbitol candy.

I already quit one RFL run because I fully freaked out when this happened. This time around, I'm going to keep on keeping on.

Food:
- RFL brownies with Cool Whip Free on top
- ff Greek yogurt mixed with pp
Just wasn't in the mood for veggies and savory stuff today. *shrug*

Exercise: none, I skipped the gym to touch up the roots on my hair color. Terrible priorities! Actually, I feel like a new woman, and I'm really glad I got this taken care of.

Steps: I need to remember to add these now that I have a tracker. 14,000 yesterday (woo!) but a mere 6500 today.

Well done. You're now an official weight lifter.

Hi, Liberty.
Thanks for stopping by on my journal.

I think I will copy your idea to post my step counts daily.

Have a good day!

I got the idea from bstrong. I think it's going to be a good habit to help me keep my NEAT from dropping too much in the later weeks of the diet (hopefully ...) and then keep it higher in maintenance as well.

Week 3, Day 3

Ugh. Cold, tired, and pretty well over this whole diet. But whereas in the past I would have spent all day debating with myself about whether to give up, I was able to just put my head down and get through.

Had zero desire to lift, and bribed myself by using the machines instead of the free weights, because it somehow felt like less mental effort. (A good decision because I got lightheaded during a lot of the sets.)

Oh well, free meal tomorrow at a falafel place -- so I really have no excuse not to hang in there!

Food:
- oven-roasted cauliflower (I got interrupted by a friend dropping by while making it, so I left it in the oven longer/lower temp than usual, and it was AMAZING. I ate over a pound, seriously. I'm going to have to make it this way all the time, even though it takes a lot longer.)
- ff cottage cheese
- chocolate Soy Slender
- shredded chicken "pizza crusts" with 2-carb BBQ sauce

Exercise:
- Leg press 3x12x140# (this was a lot harder than bodyweight squats, for some reason)
- Chest press 3x12x40#
- Row 3x12x40#
- Back extensions on the roman chair 3x15 (oh my goodness, I love these)
- Planks 3x1:00
- Easy walking 35 minutes on the treadmill

11,000 steps today.

Week 3, Day 4

No longer constipated, but weight still stalled. Had a large free meal today, but mood and energy still low. I'm going to hang in there a few more days and see if this is just a bump in the road, or what.

Food:
- post-midnight snack of hot chocolate made with chocolate Soy Slender + mint extract + Cool Whip Free (kiddos kept me up until all hours, and this helped me wind back down at last)
- free meal -- falafel!
- pound of oven-roasted cauliflower
- several microwave pp cakes

Exercise: none

A dismal 4,500 steps today. Had a training workshop for my job so I sat on my rear ALLLLLLLL day and got home too late for the usual dinner/gym routine.

Week 3, Day 5

STILL stalled at 140. Gah.

Frozen veggies were on super sale so I bought 18 bags

Food:
- middle-of-the-night snack of frozen Cool Whip Free (these kids need to stop waking me up all night)
- chicken "crusts" with 2-carb bbq sauce
- oven roasted cauliflower
- chocolate Soy Slender mixed with pp

Exercise: none. 5,500 steps.

Week 3, Day 6

Weight still up and tight jeans still tight. Siiiiiigh.

On the other hand, I visited my parents and siblings, whom I hadn't seen in about a month, and there were many comments about how much slimmer I look. So that was a bit of a reassurance. I don't see much change in myself at all.

Food:
- chicken crusts with 2-carb bbq sauce
- pp mixed with ff greek yogurt
- pound of oven roasted cauliflower
- more ff greek yogurt
- refeed at office Christmas party (had it planned elsewhere but that fell through and I decided to do it today anyway): lots and lots of rice, some fruit desserts and a few cookies, 240g carbs total

Exercise: none

Steps: 11,000, a quarter of them in a gown and 4-inch heels
