Had to pick fraternity brother (coed honors frat) up from ATL airport because she missed her flight, then drop her off at her mother's house in Greenville, THEN drive my ass to Clemson for a power nap before heading to class. Also, homegirl, if you live so close, we should schedule a workout date once a month!!! :P

Well, now that backtracking makes sense. Live in Sptbg, only work in Gville.

April! Kudos on all that green! Just a red for not having done your handwashing yet!

Tori, so sorry about your head whacking! Feel better soon! I couldn't afford gym membership until I turned 65 and my medicare health insurance program covers 100% of my membership at the Y. One of the perks of aging. Planet Fitness gym here has treadmills, ellipticals, weights, and a few other things (I've never been there) for just $40 downpayment and $10 per month. You have any of those near you? I laughed and then snorted like a pig over your misreading Mike's "get the funk out" post. You naughty girl! LOL

Joanna, I shall make it a point to make the rest of my week "shiny and awesome." Thanks for your encouragement, sweetie! Glad you made it to the gym and that your weight is going back down. Those plateaus really are discouraging, aren't they? But they don't last forever--luckily.

Beth, I copied the muffin and coffee image from the Internet. Was nice I found one that fit so well. Hmm, I tried hummus once, but I must have put too much lemon or onion in it. Don't know if it was the recipe or if I just don't care for hummus. Got a recipe you can share? Oh, eggwhites would make a nice base to spread it on. Is that what you do? Would love to see a picture of yours.

Will have to proofread later--gotta take GD to work.

I've been having issues with my teeth lately too, went to the dentist thinking I had cavities. Nope, teeth are fine, but apparently I'm clenching my jaws all the time, so dentist prescribed Sensidine toothpaste for the sensitivity and yoga "moments" for the tension. So when my teeth hurt I'm supposed to stop everything for a few seconds and relax one zone at a time until I'm completely relaxed. And if that doesn't work she'll have me fitted for a mouth guard to sleep in. Can't you just picture how sexy that'll be?

Awww, how sweet are you? Melting down in front of complete strangers at a conference would be really funny and maybe liberating, but maybe not the first impression you were hoping for, lol. I feel the same way when I'm off-line for a few days. Luckily Mike reminded me that I can log on from my phone, where it's quite easy to read the posts, less easy to respond. With 10 fingers I can type almost as fast as I speak, but that one finger typing takes so long I forget what I'm trying to say by the second or third word.

So, I went and got another fitness assessment today (you may remember that I signed up to do three this year through my gym membership, the first one being in August.) Anyway, so I've lost 13 lbs and did better in almost everything, which is great! However, while my body fat percentage went down, apparently half of what I lost was lean body mass, as opposed to fat. Does anyone know how that works? I mean, I've been doing weights and stuff, so I wouldn't think I'd be losing lean mass, but I may just not know how it works.

Huh! I didn't know one would lose lean body mass unless they were sick and the muscles atrophied from lack of use. I'd like to know how that works, too.

There are likely people here who can give a better answer than I can however that never stops me. The first thing I would do is check out your protein intake and see if it is too low. Also do you have any idea how relaible their test is? Do you feel like you have more of less muscle? Can you see a difference in your muscle definition? That is one of the things I have noticed improving. Joanne Did you gain over christmas? That would likely be fat that could distort the test -- maybe. I'm just brainstorming here so feel free to tell me I'm off track. Mary

Mary - thanks for the input! I didn't gain over the holidays, but my sister said maybe I should look at my protein intake. I do try to get protein, but I'm pretty certain it's not enough. She also suggested eating protein directly after my workouts.

Edit: I seem to get on average about 55-60 g of protein a day - perhaps that's not enough?
