5% Spring Challenge WK 1...Please Pass The Fiber

Saturday, April 12, 2014



So far, so good. Down a little over 3 pounds. The secret? 1st half of week was just trying to stay within calorie range by posting foods eaten (keeps me honest) and then in the 2nd half of the week I got the bright idea to give Atkins a try...again. According the Jimmy Moore's Living La Vida Low Carb podcast #389 (great interview with Jackie Eberstein R.N., worked with Dr. Atkins since 1974) Induction isn't about weight loss but rather getting our bodies to switch from burning carbs for energy to burning fat. Weight loss just seems to be a very nice bonus :) Anyway, from there and other sites and testimonials I was actually counting on a bigger loss until I came across the only Youtuber to mention FIBER! Apparently all this protein, especially if the sources are animal, can get you a little backed up. Sadly, that is exactly where I am BUT (I don't think that was a pun) there is hope. YouTuber said by taking a Fiber tablet daily (with psyllium husks) she was able to visit the throne daily on her way to losing 10 pounds that week, and she's seems smaller than me!

So looking forward to getting some EasyGo (that's what I'd call it if it were my company) this weekend along with some veggies because it's not just about the fats and proteins. That and slowly cutting back on the diet sodas and drinking more water.

Some results from just a few days of mostly eating proteins/fats:
More energy (especially today)
Less soreness in lower joints (carbs can cause an inflammatory response)

    LOVE Jimmy! His book Cholesterol Clarity helped my husband drop hundreds of points on his triglycerides. His doctor was really happy. I'm glad you have found this way to be helpful to you. Check out Vinnie Tortorich podcasts too. (World Angriest Trainer). He has a lot of great guests and advocates NSNG (no sugar no grains). I do this only the PPNSNG (plant powered no sugar no grains).

February 22nd Weigh In and Star Trek Bra Tech

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Down to 212 lbs. Getting back there slowly but surely.


Now onto the fun stuff. I've seen Star Trek: Into Darkness a few times a while ago and it just dawned on me that the tech in that movie is inconsistent.
Figured out how to travel faster than light emoticon

Super Futuristic Bra

Props to Star Fleet for going with black satin over cotton but where's the tech?!? Believe me, I paused and looked but saw nothing. No mini hands-free phaser, no platinum under rigging, no LEDs (it's mostly dark out there, hence the movie's title...i think), no remote control to adjust lift or those missing LEDs. Not even a communicator. NOTHING!

Or maybe all that and more is there but it wasn't relevant to the story. If there is a third Star Trek (after Mr Abrams is done making Star Wars history!) and Kirk, Scotty or whoever is reaching behind to undo a bra I won't stop watching the movie but a part of me will feel an opportunity was missed for some real movie magic.
