thank you

I appreciate your input & thoughts. I understand exactly what you are saying. I want to say more. I won't. It won't do anyone any good; it's my hang-up not yours, & I am not setting out to corrupt your relationship with her.

I do wish Marie the best & don't want her to stay away from your blogs--was actually relieved when I saw her posting responses shortly after I told her I blocked her. Just because she & I don't read each others blogs (we never really spoke outside of the blogs) doesn't mean I think she should stay away; I honestly wish she wouldn't. I wouldn't say or do anything to make her feel uncomfortable. I just don't want her reading mine. Maybe I should have just ignored her. Whatever. It's done.

That said, Laura, don't get hung up on your lack of participation on facebook. I'm a farmville junkie & that's the main reason I'm there but I also communicate with my niece, nephew, bazillion cousins & acquaintances from work. I'm not even sure Gil, Kimmie, or Tracy is even there. Kimmie deleted her account a long time ago & I just found that Tracy & I aren't even friends there (because you mentioned her). Wendy & I rarely communicate there.

But enough of that shit...

Here's the latest LE learning...While they say don't each starches outside of the 3 hour window post-workout JB does include most starchy vegetables as JUST THAT vegetables. A sweet potato is not a starch but a vegetable according to last Monday's lesson:

Adding in vegetables and fruits to reach a MINIMUM of six veggie/fruit servings each day is a tremendous goal. If you are getting less than six servings each day, a nutritional deficiency is almost assured. To keep overall intake in check, aim for a bit more veggies than fruits.

A serving is basically what you can fit in the cup of your hand. To be more specific, a serving equals:

  • ½ cup of fruit
  • 1 medium piece of fruit
  • ¾ cup (6 ounces) of 100% vegetable juice
  • 1 cup of leafy vegetables
  • ½ cup of cooked or raw vegetables

Some real life examples:

  • 1 medium banana
  • 6 strawberries
  • 2 plums
  • 15 grapes
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 peach
  • 5 broccoli florets
  • 10 baby carrots
  • 1 roma tomato
  • ¾ cup veggie juice
  • half of a sweet potato
  • 4 slices of an onion
I sort of like this.

workouts...I've been doing mostly functional workouts since I've been off. Today was the first time I did any type of upper body stuff & that was just squat thrusts, plank jacks, & mountain climbers. I can't wait to get back to the gym.

I like that he includes sweet potatoes too, but I find it curious. Hmmm. They are fairly low glycemic so maybe that is it.

How is it going? Did you enjoy the staycation? I hope you are seeing the results you wanted on the program.
