    sounds like you are really getting after it GGR. Keep up the good work. Consistency is the key. damn if I don't have to remind myself of that as regards diet every day.

    Keep working on those pullups. You'll get there. They are just harder for some than others. Females and those of us with long arms and legs just have to struggle through. Once you get that first one, you'll be ripping off 8 or 10 in a couple of months.

    Keep tha faith!

    Eating clean, small meals has been working however also notice less frequency in the poo department. Almost a whole week and nothing. Seems excessive time to wait on the poo. Gi tract works better when I workout. More workout more poo. Less workout less poo. Miss my workouts.
    Give chia seeds a try. U can buy them at kroger (or whatever supermarket u live near) Mix about 2-3 tablespoons of them with water or juice. then drink them before they have a chance to sit to long. Chia seeds actually gelatinize in your digestive track and help to push toxins out and keep you moving regularly.

    Thx DTMBro. I have my moments Food been good. I need to find room for 4 good cardio sessions a week plus weights @ least 3 times. It's a struggle lately.

Today same guy asks with a grin, are you having another good morning??? yup. pulled out my size 2 slacks this Morning

    My personal pull-up challenge. : ).

    Thx Scotty. I found these seeds and 3 tbsp have 14 g of Carbs, of which 12 g are fiber. I will give this a try. I am not getting enough fiber

    Appreciate the tip!

    Hi there!
    Sounds like you are doing great, Miss Size 2!!
    I'm jealous...I'll never be a 2 again. But then, I did want to put on some size haha. Never satisfied!
    You should be proud.

    About the fiber - I've gone to the health food store, and made a mix of psyllium and hemp powder. A tsp in a glass of water with ice, and some Crystal lite is not too bad. Put it in the blender and you're GTG...literally!!!

    Thanks for the tip. I have never used psyllium.
    I was just in the closet trying on the spring stuff.
    My size 2s are tighter then I like.

    Weight up a pound. Not surprised. Eating more healthy fat. Need to make an adjustment. Those extra fat calories add up quickly. That and my schedule is not consistent. Only worked out twice last week. Just not enuff time in gym with all the extra avocados. LoL.

    Been reading PSMF Rapid Fat loss handbook. Interesting.

    Making me look bad.....I am on a 2 day a week routine...my new crappy norm. I rather like a 40 hour job. This 50-60-70 hour crap stinks. All I did was do a good job and I got more work. One day I will learn :/

    Haha I should have mentioned that lol Have you had one caught in your smile all day yet? They kinda look like a cavity

    Hope things work out with the schedule. I'm recently unemployed, the only benefit I have is plenty of time to eat right and train

    Yes. I have embarrassed myself but now know to swoosh with water and take a peek in a mirror. LoL.

    Schedule is tough. No time for gym in over a week.

    @Scotty. I was between jobs and it was more stressful then having too much work. I was working out a lot. . Use your connections to find another position. I lucked into my new company at a party when I least expected. Wishing you the best!!!

    Life throwing me some curves and speed bumps.

    Run down and sick. Sometimes I wish I was a kid with no real responsibilities and my mommy could still make all the badness go away.

    Thx Al. It's been going on for more than a few months. Quite a distraction from my fitness goals. Trying to address the distraction and refocus on my priorities but has been extremely draining and difficult. Recognizing that it's been impacting my personal life and health has given me strength to face the demon. It's about to become lonely and have to pull up my big girl panties. Big as in adult not the granny panty reference

    I have been preaching psyllium for years!
    it's such a common thing, and the perception is that "old people" use it. But I tell you what. it's one helluva way to keep your GI tract in top shape. My son takes it too, and he swears by it. Funny thing, is on days you forget to take, you know it!

    And hey Girlie! Take my poll on my nutrient calculator? I want to get this thing finished up, just not sure what everyone needs or expects
