Oh yeah……


189.5 this morning.

I have not seen that number since high school.  Holy cow……

This means I’ve lost 115.4 pounds since May 30th, 2012.

I’m finding the right combo of exercise and food (when and where).  For example, last week my IP coach recommended I drink the mango & peach IP drink right after exercise as it has electrolytes in it.  I’ve been doing that, and it’s great!  Last night I even took it out on the floor with me instead of my water bottle, and I felt great while doing the machines after my run.

I am finding that I have to play a bit with the calories on the days I run (and the day after I run) due to needing more energy and sheer hunger of revving up my engine so high.  IP purists, I’m not recommending this until you become an IP “oldie but goodie” (meaning, I did 8 months of traditional IP, following the rules strictly, including only low to moderate exercise).  On days I exercise, and sometimes the day after, I’m having 4 to 5 IP products.  I stay below 55 carbs (not net carbs), and sometimes have to sacrifice veggies (maybe 2-3 cups instead of 4….just to keep the carbs down).  I know this is “off plan”, and I know long-term the more veggies the better….but I’m trying to find the right balance of staying in ketosis while exercising like a fiend.  It won’t be for forever….only until my one year anniversary on May 30th, 2013 (my end point until I reach 160 before then….not likely).
