    Ok just finished my workout. It was pretty funny to be all ready to work out this morning, bike ready, outfit on and have my daughter call and tell me I had to bring her trumpet to school. At least it was a day that I'm not gone all day so I was able to get it done.

    That's four for this week, so I need to work out tomorrow to make my 5. It's going to be difficult with getting up at 1am and working for two hours on friday, saturday and sunday morning. I'm going to be so tired by the end of this weekend.

    Foods with lots of sugar or refined flours. (Cake, most fruit juices, white bread, candy, etc.)

    Some examples of healthy foods - this isn't an all inclusive list:
    Veggies. It's hard to go wrong with them. Tomatoes!!!
    Fruits. Consider this a "eat freely, but not all the time" food. Calories add up.
    Lean proteins such as chicken/turkey breasts and most fish.
    Beans. Very nutritious, high in protein, and has healthy fats. These are staples of vegetarian diets, and should be a staple in yours as well.
    Whole grains. A good compliment to beans, but be careful not to get carried away with them.

    Nuts like almonds, walnuts, cashews, and pecans are healthy, but high in fat. A little bit can go a long way with these.

    It's also about energy density. High energy dense food are fine before worksout as they are digested fast, but meals should be constituted of low energy density food: low fat meat, fruits, vegs..

    I actually did a second workout last night after also having done one in the morning. For some reason, after dinner my body seemed to want it. I felt sluggish and fat, and had a real urge to exercise. I got up and did it again today, so that's 3 workouts in 24 hours! I'll be one over on my workouts this week

    True. The same leniency goes for after a workout as well, when the muscles are like a sponge for glucose.

    What about soybeans? Are they, er, beans?

    it's like, foods with dubious health value:

    peanut butter
    red meat
    dairy products

    still eating well. haven't worked out much this week but i blame getting used to my new eating regime. i wouldn't say i was weak but i'd rather my body get used to a lower calorie diet and start working out next week.

    this seems weird to me but i think i overall feel better since i cut the crap and have been sticking to the basics. i guess the saying you are what you eat isn't complete rubbish! also i've had diet coke sitting on the counter all week and haven't touched a drop! had a salad tonight instead of our usual splurge. husband travels so we usually have a nice meal and he expenses it but tonight i opted for a 7 points weight watchers salad on the take out menu.

    XD Not so motivated today I'm afraid, one workout DVD on level 1. I have a weekend of hardcore cleaning at my shop for the Ren Fest, so plenty of exercise to be had this weekend.
