    I would suggest to you.....drop down on the cardio a bit - no more than a 1/2 hour a day. More than this could result in burning muscle for energy instead of burning fat, and you don't want that. Insert some strength training in the extra time you used for the cardio. If your body has more muscle, it will burn more fat for energy.

    Eat 1 gram of protein per 1 lb of body weight every day. I'm finding it difficult to see your ratios in your posts. Can you maybe put them at the end of the day in totals to make them easier to read?

    Good luck - you're definitely on the right board!!

    Thank you, she wasn't at 100% yesterday, so I didn't want to take her to the daycare and get everyone else sick. No gym again yesterday.

    Yesterday's (10/26) Entry

    8am- protein shake; banana; 16oz water

    1030am-protein bar; 1/2 can Sobe; 20oz water

    12pm-Grilled chicken in garlic herb sauce w/red peppers and yellow & green squash; 16oz water

    3pm-apple; 20oz water

I am also having a hard time getting enough protein in my diet, should I drink more protein shakes? Does anyone know what other foods are higher in protein besides chicken? Thanks.

    Re: Afgrl's Journal

    Okay, when I first posted my stats and my goals on here I think I set the bar pretty darn high. I am thinking that I'll lower it a little, b/c I don't want to let myself down if I can't get to that 1st goal I made. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to make it to that level, but if I can AT LEAST drop 15-20lbs and get down to 22-25%bf I'd be ALRIGHT w/that. I had originally posted that I wanted to drop 20lbs and half my body wieght, but I am unsure of what is "the norm" for someone my height 5'3" when it comes to weight and bf%. When I do make it to this goal then I will raise the bar again back to my original goal. I am NOT giving up! BTW does anyone know what the ratio between lbs and bf% is.....?

    I had that same problem when I started - not getting enough protein.

    Once I added tilapia (or any kind of fish), grilled shrimp, ground turkey and/or ground buffalo it's put me over the 40% of my cals from protein. I still have to make an all-out honest effort to cut back on the carbs. Most of my meals now are centered around protein, with just a small side of carbs. That way I know my ratios are close to where I want them to be. If not it would be all carbs, all the time.

    Chicken, fish, lean red meat, turkey breast, buffalo, beefalo, horse (someone else had that in her diet - not sure who right now - she's not in the US)....I know there's more, but my brain isn't working right now.
