Thomi CFVB

nope.. this is not the terror I was forewarning of.........


Thomi, I thought I'd ask this here since someone else may have the same question or have had.....(first of all how many blocks should i be on? i am doing 10 and feel like I am losing weight...is that possible in 4 days??)

My general question is, if you aren't hungry and haven't reached your blocks for the day should you eat them anyway or not? I haven't been able to get all 10 in the past 2 days. Andrew had trouble getting his 14 in yesterday after finally eating favorable carbs instead of the crappy ones.


Lisa, yes you need to eat all your blocks. That is what you need to maintain lean muscle and lose body fat. If its hard to get all your carbs using vegetables then try filling a couple with fruit. It will take some getting used to & figuring out what carb sources you do best on. You can also trying more small 1 & 2 block snacks if you can fit those in easier.


345 as rx'd


Dang! I LOVE this one!!! Wish I could play today =( Stupid work...


Note to self: Three blocks of brussel sprouts just isn't fun.


275 green / knees - Lisa I sooo have the opposite problem, I have to be very careful not to go over on blocks. I think I just like food too much! Good luck it ain't easy either way :)


Andrew is was brussel sprouts, carrots, leeks and broccoli........


Yes I am.


If no one has Superbowl plans, I'm down to have everyone over here!! Large TV, overabundance of seating, we could maybe potluck some snacks?? Let me know if anyone is interested!

PS Joey, good to see you in the gym again brother!


I am fed-up with snot, headaches, and the chills. I am also over people coming to work sick...stay home and get better I don't want to be part of your experiment to see how many people you can pass your germs too. Seriously, make it stop. If you should get these symptoms I am sorry...if you get sick feel free to come to my work and kick the guy that sits next to me.

So Thomi, I am not missing again, I am simply trying to get better and not infect your gym. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow in time for the 'workout of terror'
