    you could use a hand peddle bike if you belong to a gym or do upper body work, but i agree with the other person that too much use of the foot in a cast will just cause longer term problems. Stretching and some of the things to can do seated (arm circles, punches, etc) can still get your heartbeat up but let your foot heal.

    Cody's recovery video will work great to stretch out sore muscles. the recovery / with the rollers or tennis ball may be too intensive if you are that sore. but the yoga / stretching will help.

    I find this is a great source for recipes:
    http://www.skinnytaste.com/

    They are not all sin-free, so sometimes you have to adjust. The quinoa spinach patties are my morning staple - but I leave out the Parmesian cheese during ignite.

    Also under the LIFE - they post new recipes more frequently - and you can look at the back posts too.

    Even if you are avoiding the six sins...you also have to watch your portions. They don't give exact measurements of food, but being very reasonable with the portion sizes...even of the healthiest food. Keep it up...and think of the long term goal.

    Another one...If you like split pea - substitute a lean pork tenderloin (plain no marinate - they are cheaper and barely any sodium) for the ham....I put carrots onions celery and a few potatoes to make it extra thick. very cheap and filling.

    Good economy meal is Turkey chili - I also buy bulk Ground Turkey and Chicken Breasts from BJ's - although they don't have No Salt Added diced tomatoes, so you always pay a little more because they only have standard sized cans of those. Beans and soups are another cheaper, yet filling meal - and I especially like those in the winter as it feels like comfort food. I made a celery root & cauliflower soup with onions and NSA Chicken Broth - it was really good!

    thanks -@bbates - I checked out the site and may have to order some mint powder too. I grow that - and have it on the counter with a plant light - but I like a little mint in with my chocolate protein shake so the powder they sell will be great. Thanks for sharing

    RWinzer commented on jamjackvee's answer to Truvia and Stevia:

    I've been researching this myself as I use the real plant leaves in my drinks and teas - but in the winter it's hard to get it to grow as fast. I've read that Trader Joes does have a natural stevia or you can buy dried leaves online and grind them. Most others also have Dextrose in them.

    very few of the stevia's on the market are real stevia without dextrose or other manufactured sugars as a main ingredient.

    I agree - if I don't remember to take a picture, I generally just look up the food on google and save off a picture from any recipe / image that is close to what I had. :) But I agree - it would be nice to just describe and use a default image if we don't want to picture log.

    Thanks - I found there regular gluten free - and have been using them to make my protein bars - but I'll look for the steel cut.

    I have also been frustrated with not being able to count no program exercise....I just started balance and no way to boost my 10 points to 15 if I don't do all of my videos here.

    RWinzer commented on RWinzer's answer to Frustrated!:

    ok - next day scale was 4 pounds lighter - someone suggested not weighing everyday - and doing measurements....my pants do feel a little better. in "Balance" stage right now and going back to "Tracker" to see my overall calorie and carb intake...still wish these two DB apps were integrated!!!!

    RWinzer answered the Question: I just started the ignite program this morning

    I hate mine with water...I get DB Fuel and it is good, but I like the chocolate better than vanilla. I put Coconut Milk or Almond Milk (unsweetened!) in it and then with vanilla - I add either a little frozen peaches, or frozen raspberries...also if I'm really being indulgent I add a little bit of unsweetened coconot plus pinapple. It's not quite a pina colada.....but....

    RWinzer answered the Question: Why are you doing Ignite?

    I eat pretty healthy & cook most meals lots of veggies & lean proteins...and get between 2-3 workouts in a week but then have moments of weakness...but not too often. Have had 15 pounds just sneak on a few pounds at a time - turning 46. Used to just "watch" for a few weeks and 5 would come off...now the needle is stuck. I'm on day 21 - and I was feeling pretty good although wanted faster results. Scale was NOT my friend today and it's depressing but I only got one workout in last week. Trying to stick with it...
