    I wasn't able to follow my dinner plans..instead i have shredded chicken taco, and 1/4 c rice 1/4 beans (makes a complete protein, no? and about 7 chips.. then went to trader joes and resisted the temptation for chocolate while i was waiting in the check out line-- not easy to do with PMs!!

    Wouldn't mind seeing more complex carbs

    I'd remove the yam from this meal and eat it (or a comparable carb source and qty) with your PWO. I know I know, not as fun as a steak and potatoes meal w/ greens!

    I wouldn't have the yam here - just protein, greens, and a bit of fat (fish oils).

    Looking better though, you'll get there!

    please remind, i used to know this -- can you give some examples? i am stuck on the yams but open for more options..

    Let me preface my answer by stating I hate my back personally - I think it sucks and is really lagging - therefore I don't claim to have any 'secrets'.

    With that said - I think back is one of those macho exercises that guys tend to sacrifice form form heavy weight. Put the ego aside, lower the weight, and execute proper form. Full ROM, squeeze and hold every rep for a second. Twist put it best - try and imagine pinching a pencil between your shoulder blades. This is with rows and pull down type exercises alike.

    Also, with pull ups - guys do these half assed reps where they don't go all the way down - and in so doing, they give their bi's a good workout but not the back. I make sure to come to a complete hang on every rep. That ensures my back is doing the bulk of the work.

    For me though it's probably deads. I really go all out on them.

    Not sure what's on your current list, but here's an incomplete list:

    oats
    yam/sweet potato
    quinoa
    lentils
    beans
    whole grain/brown pastas
    whole grain/brown breads (sprouted grains are best vs. flour)
    brown or basmati rice
    grits
    cous cous
    barley
    some cereals - in moderation. Ones very low in sugar - cheerios, wheetabix, shredded wheat (no not frosted, lol)

    I'm sure there are many others, but those are what I can think of off the top of my head.

    I think your back looks great! i have alot of "body part" issues, but after being sick for so long and having a bad injury years ago that kept me out of the gym.. i am really working on appreciating having a body that works! it may not be like the "magazines" images...yet she keeps me going.. i hope i can encourage you to enjoy your back, for it is strong and healthy and lean!
    and thanks for the list of complex carbs- gives me something to think about on this journey.. i do like beans...

    You bet! And re: beans - they're a wonderful food. Nature's own colon cleanser. They literally 'scrape' the intestinal walls as they go through the digestion process. On top of that, they're an excellent complex carb source. White Navy, Red/Pink Kidney, Black, Chick Peas (Garbonzo Beans) just to name a few - all great.

    i can't figure out how to do the indivudual quotes like you did gbrice--hmm need more computer skills.

    today:
    rushed out to appt.
    coffee, non-fat oatmeal scone, protein pwdr, scp green pwdr

    myoplex shake at gym with 3o min shoulder workout-- either the coffee or the myoplex gave me energy
    30 mins walking on treadmill.

    rice about 1 cup.. white, the place i went didnt' have brown, veggies,grilled chicken

    spirilina and water

    hummus, 3 falafels, babaganoush, 1 dolma

    later will be cottage cheese and 2 fish oils-

    feels like i didnt have enough veggies today. and the day didnt get off to a good food start.. but not too bad... thank goodness for the green powder and spiriluina.... i am ready to veg out..

    to do individual quotes you press the button beside "reply with quote" that has a quotation symbol and + sign, this allows you to quote multiple people, then reply as normal

    yay! that part worked.. but what i liked was the way gbrice had done quotes to different parts of my post... i am trying to figure out how to break down one quote into several individual .. i guess that doesnt make much sense?

    off that topic - NECK workout. my neck got whiplash really bad years ago, and i want to strengthen the muscles cause it can eaisly pop out of place, (not too bad though) ..so at the gym they have a 4 way neck machine- i am trying to learn the proper way of using it as to not over extend.-- was trying to find an online video but no luck - wonder if anyone might have an idea where to find such a thing? thank you!

    ^^^ looking like good clean choices but don't forget to list where your workout fits into the day, assuming you're doing one. I'd assume between meals 3 and 4 in the first diet and 2 and 3 in the second based on the carbs.

    Ok, saw the powerwalk but wasn't sure if you were also doing weights. Note i'd keep the carbs very minimal if you aren't weight training. I understand in this case you planned it but weren't able to get to it due to traffic - it happens.

    You are doing so well. And your spirit seems to have lifted too. Keep it up. THIS WILL WORK!

    thanks girlgym... i would lov nap but not very goo dat it, although sometimes i do soak in epsom salts and then make myself laydown and listen to some online hypnosis for various things- it seems to help the body get a deeper rest.

    meal one: lowfat coconut milk 1/2 c, grn pwder, pp, blueberries, 1/2 bananna.
    back to resting for me.. thinking about hummus and fafael for lunch.. hmmm.. not sure about the "contents " of it ? have a good day!
    it is all an experiment with the gammaglobulin seems this week i feel alot worse than last time- maybe it is killing off the lyme bugs!! a day of rest and warm liquids- and good food.

    The body needs rest to grow properly so take your time off to replenish. Rest is paramount.

    oops just saw your post sexy4 my.. yes resting is good..i have to remind myself that- and part of muscle building, immune building. I really appreciate everyone's support! i am not sure how to measure my losses... are there any? i dont really measure- and the scales seem inconsistant at the gym and or dr's office - although yesterday at the doc office it said 174.5 i think that was down a couple.. but not sure-- i was down 5 lbs last month after i got sick.. and then it all came back-- so we'll see what happens as i move forward.
    today seems like it was alot of carbs huh?

    i just use a tape measure and keep a track record of the inches on body areas that are important to me. Its seriously kept me from having a full on gurly episode (due to no weight loss) if I didnt see the inches melting I would be very unhappy to say the least lol. I dont measure to often,just when I feel the need.
    I am soooo far from advising anyone on their diet (Im just fombeling around here too lady lol) sorry not much help to ya ~but Im sure the pro's well chime in on if the carbs are to high or low.
