Iron Experiment Day 4

Divided the sets up and only did two sets before switching to another exercise. Not only was I able to complete all 4 sets without the thighs of rubber reappearing, I also did 60 crunches on the ab ball.

SIXTY CRUNCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never, never, never, never, even when I weighed 120 pounds and they forced us to try to reach thirty in gym class in high school, NEVER been able to do 60 crunches.

I must be doing something right.

On a food note, squash casserole will okay (I had to substitute an ingredient that may have something to do with it), it does not keep well. I still have two cups left to eat and I don't want them.

So I've been kind of thinking on the Daily Apple blog's advice in the back of my head. I need more veggies, but I also need to be able to pack lunch to work. Still contemplating this as a solution: protein and veggies for breakfast, probably eggs; protein, veggies, and a little carb on the side for lunch, like Moroccan Chicken with 1/3 cups of Parmesan couscous with 2 or 3 cups of veggies; and totally veggies at supper, unless muscle-building slows down or I start getting hungry then I need to add protein.

I'm still considering it. Finding some breakfast recipes would help because I'm lost with the veggies at breakfast idea if it's not leftovers.

You go girl :)

Veggies for breakfast, hmm. All I can think of is potato cakes, and they really aren't diet food.

Have you tried berries and yoghurt for breakky?

No, potatoes are a starch and I should steer clear of them right now. Not really crazy about yogurt unless it is textured like ice cream. Now that I missed Doctor Who for Flash Gordon (though I like the update), I can start looking for recipes.
