    I am wondering if you are referring to eating so many vegetables that you aren't getting enough other foods. The truth is, veggies have a pretty good protein/carb ratio - they just lack many calories, and therefore substantial amounts of protein. To me, veggies can make for a healthy compliment to any meal - but they simply aren't substantial enough, calorie wise, to be the meal. Even salads need beans, salad dressing, meat, fruit, etc to have substantial calorie content.

    I do well with a high protein diet, though. I just have to watch the red meat. It's important to mix meats and include lots of lean meats like chicken breasts, fish, etc. Lately, I've been adding vegetarian meals to my diet, as well.

    Whenever possible, try to eat snacks with a mix of protein, fat, and carbs. They've been shown to give you the best metabolic boost for the longest period of time. Also, fat + protein leads to a high feeling of satiation.

Usually, in order to lose a few, I have to wait for my cravings to change, which does happen fairly regularly, or I have to be really stressed out and not want to eat much. I'm pretty good about trying to eat healthy-ish most of the time an about exercising. It's just the cutting out enough junk to lose weight instead of just maintain that I suck at.
    One thing that can help is to try and see if there are any actions that 'trigger' a craving. Are you consistently doing something that makes you want that ICEE? You might have more success cutting out the trigger.

The air here is so nice and breezy and the land is vaguely hilly and it was a lot more fun to exercise without tons of pollution filling the lungs.
    If I haven't already said something, I am impressed by the way you are not letting vacation be an excuse to not work out.

    Heh. I must confess I've never had a problem with eating too many vegetables. I like them, but I don't like them that much!

    You know, if I look even remotely buff in October, maybe I'll be Rosie The Riveter for Halloween

    I slapped level 3 in the face, and my skateboarding got rained out yesterday so I'll practice today.. We always end up practicing on DnD night anyways. Which means I successfully completed my week. Now it's just rinse and repeat.

    I've got to keep reminding myself that I can't compare myself to you guys or the rest of the class or what the teacher expects because I've never exercised before. Otherwise, I guess I'm okay.
    I think this stuff right here motivates me more than anything else, honestly. I'm like "If this person's keeping up with their goals and they've never exercised before, I HAVE to keep going!"

    You and cafe are doing a fantastic job I'm glad ya'll are participating.

    No no no! It's "I can't wait until next week to own my exercise goals once again!" That's the attitude you want to have.

    Ah! That's the attitude I'll have next week. I have a whole rest-of-the-week to pretend I'm lazy until then. Although I think I will workout saturday evening with a traditional long-distance run and DVD episode.
