LaLoo's Ice Cream is superb. many flavors don't even contain many calories compared to other brands of ice cream but it tastes decadent. the fig flavor is not a light fig flavor, but an intensely delicious, total full-fig flavor and it is GREAT. you've gotta try it. 150 calories per half cup. some of haagen daas or ben and jerry's have practically 300 cal per half cup and don't even compare with LaLoo's...so glad to find it in the store.

it's make from goat's milk...superb. wow. never going back!

 

calories: 1900.

exercise: 2.5 mile walk, 20 min intense bike ride.

GREAT DAY.

Goodnight :-D to all lovely ladies of DD.

It's gorgeous here too. We're getting a 1/2 flat of strawberries today, I'm sure we will go through it quickly too!


KathyBlue on 06/19/2011:
I'm still wondering if I should drink protein shakes, too. Before gym or after gym. My friend, who's a gym addict as well, says protein should be drunk right after weight training, is that true?

Weight: 134.0

breakfast: "light" goatmilk ice cream: 200 cal.  it's not called "light" but it is....you gotta try this stuff: LaLoo's is the brand. wow. the flavors are superb. i had a strawberry/balsamic flavor the other day and i had a coffee based flavor today. some of the best ice cream i've had, and low calorie compared to  ben and jerry's. half the calories of ben and jerrys. 150 cal per 1/2 cup. pretty good.

snack: 

2 hours weightlifting.

calories: 1750 or so. perfect....late night snack: 350

total: 2100. good.

just a bit upset, depressed. went on a job interview yesterday but there was no way i'd get the position bc there were tooooo many applicants and some of them had lost jobs due to budget cuts and i have a job but not in the field i was applying, so these other people that were excessed from teaching had one up over me already...used a half tank of gas to become fully depressed over the course of 24 hours.

Umpqua on 06/17/2011:
That sounds interesting, where are you getting it? I require some kind of ice cream in the summer and I'm trying to avoid the Haagen Daaz in my fridge for the boys.


Em17 on 06/17/2011:
Hmm sounds very weird lol. Have a great day =)


thinkpositive on 06/17/2011:
I love goat cheese so think I would like the taste. Thanks for the tip. Maybe I could find it at Whole Foods??


hollybelle on 06/17/2011:
Oh, another food I want to try! I'll look for it!


legcramps on 06/17/2011:
Sounds interesting! I bet I can't find that stuff anywhere near me :(

Have a lovely weekend :)

Sorry about the interview :( Please try not to let this defeat you!!


h82bfat on 06/18/2011:
I hope you're feeling a little less down in the dumps today... if not, move on over - I'm right there with you!! Our mantra today will be: Happy thought, happy thought, happy thought!

Weight: 134.5

1 hr bike ride

134.5 lbs today...wahoo!  the scale said it and i was surprised. I am so glad that the exercise (must be the wieghtlifting mostly!!!) that i do puts me in a position to eat more and not have to restrict my diet at all. thank god for that.  and if i binged just a little less, which yes, i am working on, i will be able to lose weight quite easily....which i already am!

breakfast: 2 greek yogurts w. some chocolate stevia and nutmeg: 200.

early lunch: 2 homecooked matzahs salt and pepper 240, baked teryaki tofu 160, green pepper 50, orange 100: 550

tsf: 750 good.

snacks 500 (not all at once, 2 granola bars, one big banana), 250 (salted roasted cashews)

dinner: 360 in a sandwich, a gulp of sour milk yuck!!!, and then ice cream (was worth it!!!) 450 more.

total today: 2400 or so?

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 9.5 lbs to go!

V on 06/16/2011:
Congrats!!! Keep up the awesome workouts :)


h82bfat on 06/16/2011:
Horray for you! I too would much rather "work it off" than watch my food, however, I know that eventually I'l hit my plateau & have to make those hard decisions!! ;c) Let's keep our momentum going, shall we?!


KathyBlue on 06/16/2011:
Nooo, I won't eat too little! :) I don't want to enter into a vicious circle of guilt/punishment because that would be a ticket to hell...


Umpqua on 06/16/2011:
Yay for scale movement! I'll be reporting a gain tomorrow, I'm within a few pounds of where I want to be. I think it will always be bumpy like this, maintenance is SO hard. The exercise is huge though, and I also enjoy being able to eat more without the guilt. Have a great one!


FitAmbitions on 06/16/2011:
whoo whoo 1 hour on the bike, gotta love it and YEAH for the scale shift!


hollybelle on 06/16/2011:
Thanks for the reminder that weights will burn lots of calories! Keep up the good work, girlie!
