I feel a bit stranded on the plateau too. I went to Moab for a mancation, so I missed 10 days of workouts.

I feel better this week and it looks like I'll make it through this weeks workouts....but through all this I've managed to stay right around 178, I was 177 this morning. Sometimes I feel it doesn't matter what I do, things aren't changing anymore...but I'm trying to stick with it. It's nice to know I'm not the only one.

Alright. Been a while. Well things have been very, very hectic lately. I leave for classes at 8 am every morning and between two campuses I usually get home between 4 and 7. I work five days a week (5pm-10pm during the week and 8 hour days on weekends). This schedule plus classwork and trying to spend time with Billy I have had little time for exercise. At least that was my excuse. Problem is that this leaves me with minimal time and no motivation.

Alas, I have gained a little weight. Arizona has really good Mexican food, my weakness. I work until late most nights and Billy gets off at 11 usually. This leads to eating meals really late at night. So as of this week I am back to eating Paleo as much as possible and stopping eating after like 7 in the evening. We still eat Mexican, I just ditch the tortillas, chips and anything fried. You can get a decent burrito, unwrap, mix up some salsa and guac with it and have a good meal. I made fajitas for Billy tonight. It killed me not to have the tortillas but I mixed some greens up with spicy guacamole and salsa and topped it with the peppers, onions and chicken. Not as good as the carbed version but it was pretty good. Definitely tastes better than it looks.



So with the nutrition fix underway I should mention my fitness remedy. I had tried doing Insanity on and off but by the end of the long days I just didn't have the energy to finish the workout, if I could find motivation to start that is. Last week I started Shaun T's Focus T25. Seems to be going well so far. I skipped three days last week because I was playing around with what rest day to take and my schedule got messed up. Plus I was still eating weird. But this week is going a lot better. I'll try to keep you guys updated.

I should also mention I haven't gained a ton of weight. My clothes still fit, pants are just a little btt tighter, that sort of thing. I gained about 6 pounds but I lost a lot of muscle.

I will also clarify a little on my modified Paleo. I modify for ease (to keep me going) and budget (I'm a poor college student.) For Example, I know peanuts are a legume and technically paleo-illegal but come on. $3 for a jar of peanut butter vs. $11 for a jar of almond butter. I'll stick with natty PB, plus I couldn't give it up if I tried
No dairy.
No grains.
No added sugars. (Sugar from fruits are okay)
I don't eat as much meat as the usual Paleo enthusiast would like. Thats because I'm not a huge fan of that much meat.
I eat red meat less than five times a month. I usually stick to chicken and lean turkey. I eat meat once a day at most. At least a few days a week I don't eat any at all. I do eat tuna often, its cheap and high in protein. Eggs are eaten a few times a week as well.
I eat protein bars. Usually whatever kind is on sale. I try to get the most organic ones they have. With less than 10g of sugar. However, they usually aren't 100% paleo unless I get lucky and larabars or mojo bars are on sale.
The reason for the bars is meal replacement that I can take with me to school. $1-2 for a protein bar sure beats $5 for a cup of veggies or $7 for a salad. I will take nuts and dried fruit, and other paleo friendly snacks with me but they also get expensive as meal replacements. Like I said, money is tight.

Usual day looks like:

Breakfast: Some type of fruit (apple, banana and some PB, etc) and coffee (no sugar, splash of almond milk)
Lunch: Protein bar or some type of salad. Maybe more coffee.
Dinner: Meat/Fish/Other protein source + a veggie; or some other low carb/high protein meal.
Snacks, depending on the day, are some type of fruit, raw veggies, nuts or a protein bar or shake.

I think I got it all. Probably more than you care to know but whatever.

This staying in shape thing is a chore, that's for sure. I feel weak after a recovery week, and sometimes staying motivated is near impossible. Good luck with the new routine. Don't fixate on the number as much as how you look and feel.

I couldn't not eat/drink dairy. I go through a gallon of milk in a few days.

And guess who's sick. Not surprising. Stress and lack of sleep probably account for it. Right now I have down pat the clean diet, lots of fruits and veggies daily, regular exercise and plenty of sunshine in the valley here so that's all I can account it to. I very rarely get sick and its usually when I'm stressed so yeah. Left work early today and I have a 5 page paper to write tonight. I'm sure that this will set me back if it gets worse. I've been pounding Emergen-C today though. Usually works.

Hey Cass,

If you are still around, did you take a pre or intra workout while you were doing insanity or p90x?
