    Re: Afgrl's Journal

    wow that's a lot of cardio but i understand the liking cardio part. i would suggest adding more calories in the way of protein. i would add some protein to the 10:15 and 12:30 meals. are you doing any weight training?

    Re: Afgrl's Journal

    Thanks for the reply 8x271, I will try to get more calories and protein into those two small meals. What do you think of supplementing/alternating protein shakes w/protein bars? I have only been doing circut training, no real weight training yet. But when my husband and I go to the gym together (usually on the weekends) he helps we out w/the weight trng, lets me know what may work for me, etc. He's the one that has helped me get so motivated to do this. But it's kinda hard b/c we are on 2 different diets, so I basically have to make 3 separate dinners a night, LOL. Oh well. Thanks again for your input in my journal, much apprieciated.

    Sweetie, what are your goals? Do you always do extended periods of time with cardio?

    Hi and Congrats on the logging! It can be a real eye opener!

    Try to eat all your meals if possible - in the form of whole foods rather than processed (protein bars).

    What are your stats?

    Re: Afgrl's Journal

    I posted this in the "new to EF Woman's Board" post but I'll post it here as well.

    Hello everybody! I am a newbie, my husband (exidous) has been a member of this website for a while and I thought I'd check it out as well.
    Last week I went to have a Body Composition Analysis (BodPod, Bio-Impedence, Skinfold Calipers, & Underwater Weighing) done, so, here are my stats and other info.

    Height-5'3"
    Weight-136.5lbs
    BF%- 29.5%

    My goal is to lose 20lbs, and as close to 1/2 of my body fat% as possible. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get there, even if it means more gym time and a really strict diet. Right now I have been going to the gym M-F for 1-1 1/2 hrs a day, cardio (treadmill;45 min & elliptical machine;30min) and I try to squeeze in some time for circut training at least once or twice a week.

    My diet has been lacking lately, I try to eat good, but don't really know what kind of diet to get on. I've tried the lo-carb, tried the lo-cal, but just can't seem to stick with it for more than a month b/c I run out of ideas. Today for example: Breakfast 7am-1c cereal with 1/2c vit d milk, protein shake (mixed w 1/2 milk & 1/2 water) & 16oz water; Lunch 1130am-1 can water packed tuna, 1tbs light mayo & 1/2 wheat pita bread, protein shake, & 16oz water; Dinner 630pm-1 small chicken breast, 1c green beans, 1/2c rice, & 8oz juice & 16oz water.

    No medical concerns.

    That's about it for now.......I hope you all have (had) a great day!


    Scorpiogirl & Playmatesky, I hope this answers your questions about my goals and stats. Thanks, and like I've said before ANY questions/comments/constructive criticism or whatever is more than welcome. Since I'm pretty new to this I'm "all ears" to all the info I can get.

    Oh, yeah, I almost forgot.... yes I do mostly cardio b/c I figure it's the quickest way to burn fat. I was doing at least 1-2 days circut training, but from the advice I was given to by Sassy69 I will be doing a few extra days of it. I haven't really gotten into weight training too much yet b/c I'd like to lose my bodyfat first.

    Re: Afgrl's Journal

    Thanks Scorpiogirl for the advice, it's kind of funny that I logged in and read your post to my journal/log right after I ate a protein bar. HA HA. I agree with this being an eye opener b/c not only am I watching what I eat all the time now, but there are other people looking in my journal too, and it makes me work that much harder to get to my goal. I know I need to go get a few groceries, fresh fruit & veggies mainly.

    i concur with others, i'd ditch the protein bars in favor of a chicken breast or a protein shake. But hey, you have to start somewhere and the fact that you are here is good. I see a lot of people who try to take on to much with the changes in diet and working out. it overwhelms them and a lot of them fail pretty quick. You are lucky in that you have a husband who goes to the gym with you. Now if you both can get on the same diets that would make it a little easier on you. Just take your time, learn the basics and then go from there. Good luck!!
