Up Up and... Away with Calorie Cycling!

Sunday, June 12, 2011

The scale is up again for the 2nd week in a row. It's just up .7 lb (nothing drastic) and it is about that time of the month... but...

I do believe that I'm officially DONE with calorie cycling! It was fun to try but it's definitely NOT working for ME. It's awkward and I'm just not burning enough calories to offset those high or even medium calorie days. It doesn't feel completely natural for ME.

What's natural for ME, is eating when I'm hungry and not eating when I'm not. That feels natural... normal.

Also, working out moderately, is normal for me too. I'm just not a high calorie burn girl. I need to be consistent at things that I love to do (walking, jumping rope, aerobics, swimming)...that works for me. I don't want to get to the point where I am dreading working out because I have to burn a ton of calories to offset what I've consumed. That's not me either... And, it certainly won't last in the long run.

So, I've adjusted my plan once again for this week.

I'm STILL enjoying the strength training and I'm so glad that it was the improvement part of the EPIC challenge this leg. It's something that i feel confident I will stick to and improve upon even after EPIC. So, strength training is a keeper whether I'm gaining weight because of it or not. I don't care.

Many of you have advised me to take my measurements so that I will be encouraged by the disappearing inches. But, I'm not a measurements girl. It's awkward for me and I'm never consistent at it. I'll take the beginning measurements but not the ending. I'll doubt that I'm even doing the measurements correctly. So, I'll just not know for now. Maybe I'll care later as I get more into strength training, but for now... no measurements. My scale does do body percentage so I'll use that as an indicator.

Other changes: The calorie range is going down. It was waaay to generous with calorie cycling. I had it at 1000 - 1700. It's going down to 1000-1350. I know that some of you will have a problem with the range being as low as 1000, but it's staying there. Sorry. When I'm eating mostly fruits and vegetables then it takes a lot to get up to 1000. I've been looking over my Calorie Differential Over Time Reports and I reviewed my calorie consumption during weeks when I actually had a weight loss. During those weeks I consistently ate about 1000 - 1350 calories. So, I'm going to try that and see what becomes of it. If I find that it's not enough and that I'm starving, believe me, I will change the calorie plan mid-week. No worries.

Next change: More water!!! I need more water!! When this was an EPIC improvement challenge I was really focused more on it. But, I never did meet that goal. Now that I'm not focused on it, I'm even less likely to meet the goal. So, back to focusing on water! My body needs it!

Final change: Increase the fiber. When this was an EPIC improvement challenge I absolutely LOVED getting in all that fiber! It was great! But, I've kind of dropped the ball in that category since the challenge ended. So, time to focus on fiber again!!

That's the plan for this upcoming week. Fingers crossed!

    We really do have to fine tune things to see what works for us. It's ok to try something & then decide to let it go in favour of something else. The most important thing is to not give up.

A great way to add fibre to your diet with with the superfood, flaxseed. It's inexpensive & you can add it to cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, salads, rice... the list is endless.

    I don't even know if I'm doing calorie cycling anymore because I try to keep my average at 1600 (but no lower than 1400). But, I don't exercise more to burn all the calories I've eaten. Instead, I eat more to balance all the calories I've burned. I don't know if it amounts to the same thing, but the focus is different. I hope you find what works for you.

    Do you eat lentils? They are very high in fiber & pretty good (if you like beans). 1 cup of cooked lentils has 22g of fiber & 20g of protein. I like making them in low sodium chicken broth with some carrots & onions.

    The important thing is that you are listening to your body and evaluating what it needs. Maybe your calorie needs are slightly lower. I would still advise you to try to keep your average around 1200, because you probably need close to that just for your body to run normally. You need calories to function even before adding exercise in. If you run super low one day, just add a tablespoon of peanut butter in somewhere. It is a fairly high calorie food, but packed with lots of protein and healthy fats.

Water and Fiber are important. I usually do ok in the water, but fiber is something I really need to work on more too. I am finding that I love the Fiber Plus bars! They make for an ok snack with a decent amount of fiber.

But really, this all boils down to what you need to do for you. And, as long as you are thinking things through and analyzing how your body reacts, then you are headed in the right direction. Good Luck with the changes!

    You sound a lot like me. I eat on the low end or even under my calorie range but I listen to my body and I eat when I am hungry. I try really hard to stop when I am full. Every now and then if I know my eating is way to low I will eat past full. Example if I eat a half a sandwich and feel full I may eat the other half because I know I need the calories.

I too love to walk and do my walking videos. I've done other things like taebo but long term that doesn't work for me.

It is important to know what works for you. Good job. emoticon

    You make sense. Eating when we're hungry is the most natural thing of all. And consistency is key. As long as you are making healthy choices each day, those choices will move your closer to your goal.

    I try to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm satisfied, and for whatever reason, this tends to turn into calorie cycling for me. Of course, my calorie range is MUCH higher than yours, with my low end at 1700, but I've found that I don't do well if I eat less than that and I start gaining weight. The good news is that that threshold goes down with my weight - two months ago, it was 1800 as the low, and now I don't need to eat that much anymore as i've gotten lighter. One day I'm sure I'll be closer to 1500. I've never officially tried calorie cycling but I'm not sure i could do it if it involves eating when I'm not hungry. I love the intuitive eating thing (and thank you for telling me it had an actual name!). I think it's great that you're adjusting the plan to work for you!

    Fiber and water are both key for me! I HAVE to have those in place, no matter what my calories are! You might find when you have those up, you could cycle your calories a little and still be ok! I don't technically calorie cycle, the official way - but I try to eat at the low end and the high end and then one "cheat" meal, which may or may not bring my day's calories over. Just depends! I do it more intuitively as well, but I'll try and eat low the day before I know I'm eating high etc. Today is supposed to be a father's day for my hubby, early, but I just don't feel like splurging. You are so right in listening to your body. As far as the low calories go - yeah people will tell you all sorts of things but it's your age, current weight, metabolism etc that affect your calories. I think if your daily average is closer to 1200, for the whole week, then it's ok to go down to 1000 on some days! I know that 1300 seems to be the magic number for me and even when I eat 1600 -1800 daily, I should lose weight but I don't! Math doesn't always work out, huh?

It's great you have a plan for the week! That is what makes us successful!

The Not-so-EPIC results...

Sunday, June 05, 2011

After a week of exercising 5 out of 7 days, doing strength training 3 out of 7 days and eating within my calorie range 6 out of 7 days, I weighed in today to report on my EPIC team's challenge thread and found that I GAINED 1 lb.!! I am shocked! Those were not the EPIC results I was expecting. BUT, they aren't too terrible. I'm still ENCOURAGED.

I'm trying to think of reasons why...

Maybe it was muscle gain since it's the first time I've added strength training to my weekly routine. I did SP generated strength training last week; but this week, I'm planning to turn to Jillian's No More Trouble Zones circuit plus strength training workout. It COULD result in a gain again though because I'm sure I'll be working muscles that did not get worked last week. It's going to be challenging, but I'm looking forward to it.

Maybe it was my awkward first week try at calorie cycling. I planned a high calorie day for Saturday because it's the weekend; but I didn't consider that it's also the day before weigh-in. Duh!! Next week, my calorie cycling plan (high, low, medium days) will change slightly so that a low day is right before weigh-in. I don't know if that'll help or not. We'll see....

Maybe it was the intensity of my cardio. I thought I gave a valiant effort last week. But maybe I just didn't burn enough calories on days when my calorie intake was a little higher. I did workouts based on how I felt, not based on how I was planning to eat. But, I see now that I can't really go about it all willy-nilly. I have to have a PLAN for that too. If I have a high calorie day then I also have to have a high intensity cardio burn that same day if I want there to be a deficit. Still learning...

So.... changes are a'brewing... Let see if the changes bring about the weight-loss results I seek.

Here's to week 2 of EPIC 2.0!!!
Telling myself.. emoticon

    Seriously, DOMS and the scale can really mess with your head, but you are very resonable with your assessment about the gain. I like your roll with the punches attitude. I hope you get those EPIC results this week.

    I go with the muscle gain theory. That's some solid strength training you're doing, and you'll be getting more toned up than just doing cardio alone (even stuff like elliptical and running doesn't have the effect of solid strength training). You will be walking taller and stronger so it's soooo worth it! Stick with the plan! emoticon

KISSYTINA 6/5/2011 7:51PM

    Don't sweat that one pound. You may have a pretty good idea of what you think caused it, but when it all boils down to it, this is an inexact science. Our bodies are always reacting differently to what we put them through. We have hormone cycles and such that just seem to throw us off! Keep plugging along, and I am sure you will see a loss soon.

The strength training really is important, even if it results in a short term gain. Strong muscles burn more calories and allow us to do more things! I hope that this leg of EPIC will have you inspired to keep ST a part of your program!

Oh and... have you done measurements? I don't know if anyone else suggested it, or if you are already doing this, but measurements really can help you. If you are gaining muscle weight, you should see a loss in inches. That can be SUPER ENCOURAGING! So, maybe give it a try if you haven't.


YOU CAN DO IT!

    Any time you begin to incorporate strength training, you're going to gain some muscle mass. But that's all good, because the muscle helps burn the fat. See, it's "all working together for your good". emoticon

    I have to say, it probably is muscle gain. I went up 2.25lb this week, but when I did the body fat %, I didn't gain - I actually LOST .65lb. So all of mine was water (from TOM) and muscle gain. :)

THEMIGHTYLILLIE 6/5/2011 1:54PM

    I agree with everyone-- stick to it for a few weeks.... muscle does weigh more and it is MORE THAN possible that you are a fast muscle-builder. Some people are. With water retention and calorie cycling, it can be a number of things.... but don't let it discourage you. If you haven't... be sure to MEASURE.

    Keep up the good work. That 1b gain is so minimal that it is probably due to all the ST that you did last week. Especially since you weren't really doing it before! I think you have a good plan in place. Just stick to it!

    I agree with pooka-- sore muscles retain water and swell when they are subjected to rigorous exercise. I say keep your schedule as is and see what happens in a couple of weeks. Changing things up is a shock to the body-- which results in retaining water and nutrients. If your body recognizes this as a "oh, you mean you want me to turn into a fat burning machine??", then it will happen. Good job on the close tracking and exercise-- it's not easy and you did it!

POOKASLUAGH 6/5/2011 9:02AM

    I think you have some good ideas about what might have affected the weight. Still, one pound is a small gain and will probably flush right back out. And if you're adding ST for the first time in awhile, it also might be that your muscles are still repairing themselves, and as they repair, they gain water, so it might all be water weight anyway. I didn't know that sore muscles retained water until this last week!

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure - My First 5K!!

Saturday, June 04, 2011



Today I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. This was my first 5K, but I can¡¦t even reduce my discussion of the event to 5K gibberish.

This was more than a 5K. This was truly an EXPERIENCE. Seeing all those survivors and families and friends who walked in support and celebration of them¡K and also seeing those who walked in memory of loved ones who lost their battle with breast cancer, but who walk in hopes of finding a cure¡K It was truly overwhelming and inspirational.

During the opening ceremonies, the Survivors (who all wore dark pink shirts) marched in waving their flags to one of the American Idol contestants (I forget who) singing a song he wrote especially for this event. I got a little teary-eyed and choked up. I really did feel emotional about it. Not because I have been personally affected by it--though I have an aunt who is a survivor--but just because of the stories that had to be behind these women being there... stories of OVERCOMING. I loved it! I just took that moment to praise the God who gives all life for preserving theirs. So many reasons to make us truly thankful!



(Sorry about whatever that green line is...something with my cameraphone no doubt.)

It was clear at the starting line that this wasn't going to be a race wherein we could go for a certain time. Amongst the walkers, I don't think there really were folks going for their "best time." There were just too many people. It took quite some time for us just to clear the mob. There were thousands of participants--more than 40,000 estimated. Some people were still *starting* as we were looping around at mile 2 headed for the finish. Soooooo many people. But, they walked TOGETHER, and we walked with them... a show of true solidarity for the cause. It was awesome just being amongst them!



Along the way, we had entertainment and walkers stopped and stood around them to appreciate it and to take pictures. I snapped a few.



Overall, like I said earlier, it was just AN EXPERIENCE. My sister and her friend and I finished in 1:27:16...





clearly not our "best time" but that's okay, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously AND we burned some calories too!

Did I Fail to Mention... My First 5K is this Saturday!

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

This Saturday, I'm participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on the National Mall here in Washington, D.C. It's my first one!! I'm kind of excited about it!! I have a number and a t-shirt and everything!!! lol (Giddy like a school girl!)

I haven't trained. I haven't even been walking as my cardio lately. I suppose I should do some this evening. Yea, I'll do some walking this evening...

But, I'm not overly concerned about it. That's feels really great to even say! I'm doing a 5K "spur-of-the-moment" and I'm not concerned at all. Awesome!! That is a testament to the physical condition I THINK I'm in. (Wouldn't it be terrible if I really wasn't as fit as I thought... LOL)

But the reason I haven't trained is because I wasn't supposed to be participating in this race. My mom was supposed to walk this 5K with my sister, but because her schedule has been so busy, she asked me to take her place. So, now it's gonna be me and my sister (HEALTHYAMS) and her friend.

I don't really have any goals associated with this race. It's my sister's race, really. She is challenging herself and she has a goal to finish it under an hour. I think that's a decent goal (20 min/mile pace). My job is to stay with her and make sure she finishes. But I really DO want to set a goal for myself for my very first 5K. Just finishing it isn't enough. I already know I can walk 3 miles. But finishing it with a goal in mind...something that would stretch me...something that would push me...something that would make it a race worth reporting..a baseline for future 5K's. I want to have that feeling of accomplishment that I had when my mom and I finished our half marathon last year... that feeling that I pushed myself beyond where I thought I could go and I came out on top!

Hmmm... I'll really have to think about this before Saturday.

But there is something else I'm curious about (for those of you who have done 5K's)... since it's my mother who is registered, what will happen in regard to my results? Is it the participant's race number or name that's important. My mom is over 60... what if I place in HER age group? LOL What if I get lost?? Is that even possible? How does this stuff work?

I'm not even worried about the whole category and whatever else. I don't know how that part works anyway. I'm timing myself (with my stop watch on my cell phone) from the moment I take my first step and when I finish, the timing will stop. emoticon I don't know how this 5K will be, but when I did the HIV/AIDS one, they didn't give us any clips or anything. There was no way to know what our time was.

    Just don't wear a chip (if they offer them, just don't wear it) or anything. Because your mother is signed up, she is automatically in her age group. If I were you, I wouldn't wear her number for the finish.... just in case they are manually recording results..... because you COULD place in the upper end of her age group. They don't care if you are wearing your number or not. :)

As for getting lost-- you won't. Trust me. There are hundreds of people in the race with you (THOUSANDS in Komen) and you will have no chance of being lost.

    Hmm. Good questions. Perhaps you can contact the race directors prior to the race about taking your mom's place at the race to see if it can be transferred or not worry about it and do really good and win your mom a prize. emoticon

One thing you DO NOT have to worry about is getting lost. 5K's like 1/2 marathons are well attended so all you have to do is follow the crowd. As for a goal. Think of how you did when you did the 1/2 marathon and break that down to 3.2 miles to get a gage at what timing you'd like to have and see how you do.

Hope this helps and have fun!

Day...(drumroll please..) "40" of 40/40 Challenge: The Finish Line!

Thursday, April 28, 2011



It's Day 40!!! The 40/40 Challenge ends today!!!! Wow!! I am thrilled! I made it to the finish line!! Now it's time for my victory lap! LOL

I really accomplished something during this challenge... I gained exactly what I set out to gain: CONSISTENCY. I really don't see a problem with this now. I KNOW that I can consistenty maintain a workout routine. I KNOW this because I've done it for 40 days. Sure I missed a few days here and there but I can count them on one hand. I think that's pretty good. I feel good about it. I know that I can PUSH myself even when I don't feel like it. I can MOVE and DO SOMETHING!

I want to thank all who supported me during this challenge...leaving comments, sending goodies, and encouraging me to continue and celebrating WITH ME! I sincerely appreciate it. I can't tell you how much it's meant to me to have you in my corner. Just awesome!!



I'm sorry I left you all hanging for 5 days! LOL I haven't blogged since Day 35. I was just taking a little Spark break. But, really, what could I say that you didn't already know... I was walking.. LOL I proclaimed that that is what I'd be doing for the remainder of the challenge and that's what I've been doing. Pretty boring stuff, huh? LOL

So what's next for Ness....



Well, I won't be exercising EVERY day like I tried to do for the 40 days. It was great to challenge myself in that way, but I think working out EVERY day is a little much on MY body. So, I'm scaling back to 5 days a week. I don't know what 2 days will be rest days...it'll depend on my body. But it won't be two days back-to-back. I think that would be damaging for ME.

And, I have GOT TO add in some strength training... I'm not really sure how I'm going to go about that at this time.... maybe I need to do a strength training challenge or something. LOL Nah! Right now, I'm about DONE with challenges. I need a break. Let's see what my own will does without the technicality of a "challenge." Let's see what May holds...

But for NOW... I see... SUCCESS! emoticon
