    You guys are all doing great. Sorry about being away for awhile. I've been really busy at work & home. My own weight situation is plateaued, for well over a year now. Optigirl - your observation of LB burning but not UB is pretty much universal. EdwardR - there is a lot of debate on the...

    As week 3 winds down, you're all 25% done with C1. Keep up the great efforts, eat clean, and do not get discouraged by any meaningless scale readings! I swapped cardio and UB yesterday and today - can tell I'm run down, almost like I've overtrained. If we weren't in the middle of a...
  • Forum Post: Re: Cardio later in the day?

    Right on, BCBill. My cardio is between 9:30 and 11:00 pm on weeknights, and Saturday + Sunday AM. The main benefit comes from getting your heart rate up in an intense session. There is purportedly a small benefit to doing it before breakfast, because in theory the body must get the energy from the fat...

    Hello all, Just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive and kickin'. I am pretty much overwhelmed with work and outside activities, including church canvass and a Boy Scouting committment I'm trying to wrap up. I haven't missed a workout, and yesterday's LBWO was good. I ran...

    Hi Everyone, Just checking in. I'm right on schedule with all workouts, but may fall behind tomorrow due to various activities with the family. Looks like Sunday may be a good day to make up anything I miss. I've been eating about 90% clean, but the family got pizza and I had two slices each...
  • Forum Post: Re: 60 Plus....Looking for you

    DebbieAZ & Poppi, Well, I'm a lot younger than you both, I'll turn 55 near the end of this month. But, that's really not so far from 60, is it? I've been doing this for almost 2 years. You can check my bio - I feel better now than I did at 35 years. My philosophy has been to do...

    CN- fury, For seasonings on burrito fillings, I generally add add cumin, chili powder (mild, or medium hot, depends on the tastes of the consumer), Mexican oregano, Hungarian paprika, ancho chili powder, chipotle, and probably a dose of hot red pepper for myself, and definitely some cayenne pepper...

    I'M BACK! I had a commitment with the Boy Scouts I started in Fall, 2009, to do 5 "ticket" items as part of the Adult Wood Badge training. Of course I let these things slide, and had to devote the last two weekends to wrapping up my ticket. I'm really happy to report that I'm...

    Moxiekidsmom - 300 cal in 21 minutes! Wow, I've only broken 300 about a ten times over the last two years. You're really rockin'! Develop, I'll join the others in expressing thankfulness that you weren't impacted by the Tsumnami or earthquakes. Our thoughts and prayers are with...

    MKM, Right, this is no drill, that's why I named it "this is no drill". So what is it? Well, - this is the last one you'll get, this is your body for life!! You're all cranking it up now - go for it! Jacium

    Inspired Woman (IW?) - why is your back sore? This goes for everyone - we always need to use good form both when lifting the weights and when returning them to the rack. Lift with your legs to avoid pulling back muscles when lifting the heavier DB's from the rack, and when returning them. Don't...

    There are many struggles in life, whether it's a physical challenge, an emotional one, or a need to self-discipline ourselves. And sometime it seems life has become nothing but a large struggle. One thing is clear - we give too little credit to ourselves for facing and overcoming resistance. As exhausting...

    Optigirl - I, too would have a lot of questions and would really like to know why your friend quit doing BFL after doing it for a year. I sometimes wonder if I could ever quit it...but sometimes I also wonder if my body will hold together (cartilage, tendons, ligaments) well enough to do it for a...

    I missed you guys this week, as I fell off the face of the Earth into a thing called overload at work. I'm reading through all the posts since Mar. 24th to try to catch up. I haven't missed any workouts, but only ate 85% clean this week. That's because my birthday was last Tuesday, the 29th...

    I was so happy to see you guys are all still going at it on this Challenge. Perfection is something we strive for, but if we don't quite attain it, there will still be progress. Today is a very special day for me. It is exactly 2 years ago today that I started my first Body for Life challenge, and...

    Hey Gang, I had another one of those humbling experiences this week (Tues), as I had to dig a garden plot to get some vegetables planted this week. Of course, the motions are completely different for digging and tossing with a shovel than lifting weights, so much of my UB got sore. Of course yesterday...

    Dazza04 & Inspired Woman, I think you both have excellent plans! But, I would urge you to take a week's down time from the excercise before you continue on. Last night's UBWO about did me in. I can feel a pretty deep soreness and exhaustion in my left shoulder now. By my count, there...
  • Forum Post: Re: BFL Coffee Crew!

    It's been a long time since I checked in here with the Mocha Mavens, so hello again! I passed my two year anniversary April 6th, and celebrated by doing extra cardio and weights that week. Best yet, my last rest day was Feb. 11th, so tonight will be my 67th consecutive workout day. I'm officially...

    Optigirl, You can't drop out, cause then I'd be the only one left! Just kidding, I hope! I'm stilling grinding it out, although yesterday I really took a for real free day - a dinner out for the holiday, with things I haven't eaten in 2 years. I didn't feel at all bad since my...

    It will be the catalyst you needed, IW, because it's going to raise your confidence in yourself and your abilities, and value. Great Job! Jacium

    I also have not been on the wwweb much, so it is great to check in and see you all winding things up so well. Thanks for reminding me, Optigirl, that one of my goals for this Spring is to get into a 5K run as well. I ran an extra treadmill workout last Sunday, and warmed up for 3-4 minutes, then stopped...

    Great Optigirl, you really did well and should continue. I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't even had time to take a quick photo. I spent all day April 30th helping train adult leaders for scouting, and then worked the Art Fair Sunday at our Church. I'm on active rest now for ~ 1 week....
  • Forum Post: Re: I'm New :)

    Try to not view this experience as a diet. I consider it a shift to a more natural lifestyle, taking us back to how early humans, hunter gatherers, would have eaten and gotten physical activity. It has helped me a lot, and I've been living this lifestyle for well over 2 years. I became lean and more...
  • Forum Post: Don't Get Beat by the Heat

    Over the course of the last week I've noticed a lot of people sweating and panting in the summer heat - and they're not even excercising, they're just walking, or sitting in their air conditioned cars! The good news is: after doing BFL for over 2 years, shedding the excess fat, and achieving...

    MKM, I've been around, infrequently, but around. I never did take any pics, but frankly there wasn't much change because I was already "there". I'm trying to get into something beyond BFL now, with Orrin's & Charlie's help, and I am enjoying running outside in the...
