    Actually Twinkie calories are not equal to the calories in wheat bread, plain greek yogurt, and spinach.

    I think sticking to as little white bread/sugar as possible is for the best. Think whole grains, it's not a fad.

    Today is gym day. I was really bad and didn't go for 2 whole months (travel and Fest prep got in the way), but the last 2 weeks I've been pretty good about it. Really not in the mood to go tonight, but I'm going to try to get pumped up for it!

    This song will help.

    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    That's the important aspect of low carb eating anyway. In some ways, it's true about the calorie math, but the reason it makes a difference what you eat is because your body needs and processes different kinds of food in different ways. And if you don't get the right balance or the right nutrients, it might take a lot more calories to feel satisfied. And eating different things affects your metabolism in different ways.

    Doctors were told in school that calories out > calories in is the only important factor in weight loss, and lots of them are sticking to it, because they don't wanna have to learn anything new!


    And @mmhmm and @redcheerio (wait...who else was on the Vitamix kick? I thought it was redcheerio...) I accidentally juiced MUSTARD GREENS. I didn't realize until the hot burning green fire attacked my taste buds. It was GOD AWFUL. I have been too traumatized to touch my juicer since. And yes, I did drink the WHOLE thing because it was just too wasteful not to (I had juiced a cup of blueberries and a carrot before the mustard greens).
    Oh noz, that sucks. (Yep, it was me. I recently bought a high speed blender and have been making green smoothies. In order to make mine low carb, I've been using mostly bananas and berries, and adding protein powder and ground flaxseed. @Udog is starting on green smoothies, too!)


    Anywhoo, I did hydrostatic body fat testing and was able to allay any body neurosis. I am in 'normal' range for my age and height (and even have ever so slightly higher than average metabolism! whoohoo!) and now I have scientifically verified realistic goals! Whee!

    Are we betting money btw? Because that's a motivation.
    Yay! Good for you, that's awesome.

    For me, I know I'm a healthy size, but would like to be a bit slimmer, and I love being fit. I recently started on CrossFit, and am having fun getting stronger and fitter with the killer workouts.

    Okay, did part of my rope routine yesterday, not all of it. But I did get in a session of monster lawn marathon mowing in, so I'm counting it. Push mower + 3 weeks of growing.
