Ok my BFC peeps....I have started strenght training at my gym to tone up my junk. Its going well but I am gaining weight. Not much, just a couple of pounds so far and I know muscle weighs more than fat BUT does anyone know when the gain will stop and the loss will happen? I know it will but I haven't been able to get a definitive answer. I am not building a lot of muscle just toning what is here and keeping it strong so I don't think I should gain a lot but again, nobody seems to know the answer to that. My trainer is at the gym wierd hours right now so I thought I would post a blog to see if anyone here knows. I want to see the scale go back down again...lol..
Second question....does anyone take supplements? It seems like in my goal to get the fiber content I need, most of my carb servings are used on high fiber bread or tortilla, etc. The Chia seeds help a lot but does everyone think they are getting enough veggies or do you all just take supplements to make sure you are getting enough nutrients and minerals? I am not a fan of taking vitamins but if I am not getting all I need thru my food then maybe it is time to look for a good one. How do you guys manage to get your veggies and fiber in without going over on carbs?
I wasnt worried about any of this stuff in the losing phase but now that I made it to my goal I want to go for over all fitness and health not just a number on the scale. (Hence the quitting smoking and going back to the gym) I am having some issues with getting hungry again as well.....like munchie hungry.....between meals. I have no idea why that is....but I don't like it. I fight it off okay the first part of the day but its harder at night....I have been loading my meals with lots of protein too but it hasnt helped as much as I would like it to. I think maybe I need to be busier to keep my mind off of food or something. I just might have to find a project or a new hobby. LOL
Anyway, let me know your thoughts and please share any fav dishes that help you stay full between meals!
Have a Great BFC day!
