Congrats on your first week's results Jami. With the body recomposition you'll get from TT you'll look amazing at the end of 12 weeks! The cauliflower sounds yummy. I've got to put curry on my shopping list.

Great first week! You're targetting all the problem areas and finding solutions. If you stick with your plan you'll have an amazing transformation

Good luck combatting the snow!

You are truly off to a great start. Keep it up - having clear goals in place as you have along with the plan for how to achieve them is such an important accomplishment. I'm excited to see your continued progress through the next 11 weeks!

I just read through your thread.. really great. I know what you mean about having more energy for your kids. It's so important isn't it. I know for myself as I've put more focus on health and fitness my energy has increased and has made the time with my kids alot more fun. All the best!

Jami, how awesome are you?! Way to go! That's awesome that you were able to totally stick to your goals like that I'm sure you'll enjoy that food scale. That's a good idea, btw, a non-food reward for sticking to your goals!



Looking forward to reading about your week 2... keep it up! Hopefully you'll get out of the snow and into a grocery store before your kids eat you out of remaining house and home lol.

Day 9

So far this week, not much is going as planned. Good thing I am not going for perfect! I got up plenty early for my workout but nothing else went as planned. Husband needed some help then my son woke up early in a bad mood. I was able to get the workout finished but it had an hour break in between sets. Not quite the 1 minute as listed. I'm hoping to get the interval training in later, since my niece and nephew also showed up early today. Sigh.

I've got 2 cords of firewood coming today so I think getting that all stacked will add up too, but with 4 little helpers, it will be a lesson in patience.

Diet is harder too now that husband is home. It was easy to make out one serving and know you were getting the right amount, versus having to make two. But the food scale I ordered will help out with that. Plus it's just a bit of adjustment for all of us (me, husband and kids) on finding out how to make the food changes around the house. ! I don't just want this to be a 12 week diet. I want this to be a process of finding a new way to eat from now on. Granted it will probably be more flexible in the future when I get to a level I want to maintain, but as I said, an adjustment period is needed. Fish tacos went better than I was hoping for last night and I know everyone loves lettuce wraps, so will get that prepped this morning.

Otherwise, feeling pretty good. A little stressed this week, but can deal with it. Don't seem as hungry so far this week, maybe starting to adjust a bit to the lower calories. Mostly working on focusing on what I've got accomplished, and not worrying about what didn't get done. I'm getting all my workouts in, still following my diet, the rest will come!

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments. It really does help and I enjoy reading them. Hope everyone else is having a good week and a great start on their transformations!

Day 12 Almost made two weeks!

Pretty excited that things are still going pretty good! My workouts are getting done, but I wouldn't say at any specific time. I've mostly just determined the day they are going to happen, then do them the first chance I get that day. My son has been waking up earlier for some reason this week and interrupting my morning workouts. So I've been finishing them later in the day and sometimes having to do the interval portion the next day. But I'm getting them all done!

I'm a bit concerned that I may not be eating enough calories. I'm starting to feel pretty tired and having a harder time finishing the intervals. I'm going to finish out this week as planned, then up my calories from 1500-1600 to 1800-1900 average for week three and see how that goes. I can always change it again if needed! I have 5 more pounds to lose to reach my goal, then another 5 pounds to get to my ideal weight. Then I can work on improving my strength.

My food scale showed up and I love it! I'm finding myself getting a little obsessive about calorie count, but I can deal with it for now. I'm getting my vegetables figured out better and don't worry too much as being off by a cup of spinach doesn't really affect your calories much...so just worrying about the high cal stuff. Found the http://recipenutrition.com/ to help get the calorie content of some of my favorite recipes. Very handy since I love to cook. Reward this week take my daughter to the movie Tangled. Almost there!

Hope everyone else is having a good week!

The "getting them done" is what matters most. It is nice when you can get it all done in one day, but life just gets in the way sometimes, particularly when you have children!

Day 14

The good: I've lost about 5.5 pounds and an inch off my waist and hips. This is the lowest I've weighed since before I got pregnant with my youngest almost 3 years ago. I've done most all of my workouts, so I'm well within my 90% get the job done. My clothes are fitting better and I'm getting back into some jeans I haven't worn in some time.

The bad: I missed my first workout thanks to migraines Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Then I pulled a muscle or something in my right leg, not real serious but enough that I figure I better take a day or two off. I can be injury prone and don't want this to get serious. It's mostly my fault too. I haven't been doing a good job stretching and it caught up with me. I figure yay, I got my workout done and move on, but I need to get in in my head that the stretching is just as important (or more in my case since my flexibility is terrible right now). So I'll pick up again on Monday and do more stretching!

I'm having terrible cravings. I've even been dreaming about food and am worried about a binge coming on. Do I just plan a cheat day or cheat meal and see if that helps? I've been trying to work in a few things I'm craving into my diet but not sure if that is helping or hurting. Any suggestions? I've been doing so good on my diet and feel like I'm about to derail all my hard work. I know my diet doesn't have to be perfect, but I've never been able to keep a cheat meal to just one meal, it usually turns into a two or three day food fest and the end of the diet. I'm a volume eater, so when I cheat, I can eat a lot before I think I'm full. I've even just thought about upping my calories for a week, maybe close to maintenance then start again with a deficit for week 4. I'm down to the last 5-10 pounds that I really want to lose. Do I need a cheat day help calm down the cravings? Or is it better to keep trying to incorporate them in the calories for the day and try to get through? Any ideas or thoughts on what has worked for you? I know if I have a big binge day, dust yourself off and get back on, but the emotional impact scares me. Ok, I'm rambling now. sorry...

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
