I was deducting my points from my balance for this week and realized I had hit the wrong item. So then like an idiot I clicked it again. Is there any way to remove the items that you've eaten?
I just changed over from the Ignite to Balance stage. Since it was a weekend I was able to enjoy some of my missed foods while out at the movies with friends. I have to admit I have been really looking forward to having some cheese back in my life.
I did lose 7 lbs during the Ignite phase and combined with my DailyBurn workout program (Cardio Sculpt) I'm feeling pretty good. I think I'll save my points for weekends or special occasions. My boss buys the office lunch once a week and I have to say I'm looking forward to having a more choices.
I've got about 2 days left on the Ignite program and I've lost 7 pounds 142-135! I think I'm getting into the groove. I'm looking forward to balance (cause I really miss cheese), but I think it will be pretty easy to keep up good eating habits.
The two things I crave are potato chips and cheese.
I've noticed that my pants have a looser fit. I'm almost done with Ignite. So looking forward to having some cheese.
I'd have to saw if you're hungry then you should have something to eat. I think it takes a while to work out how much you're body needs to keep itself going.
This is my first day on Ignite too, but I've been doing the workouts for a week now. The shakes have been able to satiate my hunger in the morning. My problem has been lunch and dinner. I usually wind up being super hungry around bedtime.
I think eventually I will figure out the portions that will help me keep my energy throughout the day and I won't have a grumbly tummy around 10 pm.
I'm starting Ignite for several reasons. I used to be very active when I was in my 20s. I don't think I really learned how to eat properly. My metabolism would just burn off whatever I put into my body. Now that I'm in my mid-thirties it's not so easy. I've steadily gained few pounds here and a few pounds there.
I want to learn how to be more active and eat better.
I'm also running a 5K with some friends in September. I want to be able to keep up with them when we go out. Finally I'm going on a cruise at the end of September and I'm bound and determined to have some rocking abs for my super cute bikinis.
I have a single serving blender/shake maker that goes up to 400 ml or about 13 oz. If I just do the two scoops and then water and ice that seems to be a good consistency and amount for me. I think it depends on what you add to the shake.
I've decided to do something similar. I'm not much of a cook and have a hard time sticking to a diet. I think it will help me to stay on task if I have my meals planned out for the next week or so.
I'm getting ready to shop for Ignite and I noticed that many of the recipes call for shrimp. I love shrimp, but I'm not one of those people that knows how to devein a shrimp. Is it okay to use the frozen shrimp instead of fresh shrimp? I know that is usually deveined.
Thanks a bunch for the suggestions. That will help lead me in the right direction.
Once a week my boss buys lunch for the office. It's usually stuff like Baja Fresh or Papa John's or Chinese food. I am the person that is usually the person that chooses the restaurant. Do you have any suggestions for restaurant types that I can order from while on Ignite? Or am I just SOL for the next 3 weeks?
I did two workouts today. It was a little over 90 minutes. Other than my back being a little sore I'm feeling pretty good. Maybe tomorrow I'll get up early and do a yoga workout before work.
