    The old thread is either dead, or located somewhere beyond page 4. Either way, we begin anew.

    Just kidding about BTT
    Or am I?

    Been going hard in the paint recently with quinoa. Had grown tired of it a while ago, but mixing it with sriracha has given it new life.

    This is what I have to deal with everyday living a couple minutes from Billys. The constant urge to eat fried pepper jack boudin balls.... have been doing alright though, not going to gym as much as I like- but still pretty regular.

    Went to a pump class with my wife Monday morning, that kicked my ass more than I thought

    So I tipped the scales at 250 on Labor Day 2014. Dropped ~35 pounds by Thanksgiving 2014. As of this week I'm weighing in at just under 200 for the first time in over a decade. :blessed:

    Looking to get into the 170-180 range as a landing spot. At that point, body composition will become the focus.

    I got stalled when I was right at 208 with this bitchmade back pain and took the week off..i'm anxious to get back in the gym lifting again and try to get under 200 before the summer. I haven't been that light in a good long while so it would feel good to get there.

    I know those feels. Getting from 205 to 202 took forrrreevvvveeer. Then got under 200 in like a week. Last time I weighed under 200 was right before our summer football workouts began my sophomore year of HS.

    Did a "de-load" week last week, have been feeling great this week.

    Substituted my carbs/potatoes/quinoa with broccoli the past 2 weeks. Lost 2-3 lbs, feeling a little lighter on my feet.

    I have got to find a place to play basketball rather than just run. I'm getting so bored with just lifting + running. Think I'm going to sign up for Hot Yoga for a few months again and join a Y solely for b-ball.

    After taking several years off from playing, and really only going recently after a workout - I shoot about 8% from the field. Pistol Pete Lau will be back though

    I played a bit in college, got real big into it in graduate school, but haven't really played since about winter of 2012.

    Playing after a workout is awesome for #healthyliving, but sucks for actually playing decent. My ego can only take so much abuse.

    standard one that started the whole crockpot thread... did that one get deleted by the way??? that's a fucking travesty if we lost all those receipes.

    ~2.5lbs of chicken breasts (I like to pre-slice into skrips for reasons)
    bottle of your best wing sauce
    packet of ranch dressing powder

    simple as shit. leftover sauce in the rubbermaid to pour it on top when reheating over a bed of brown rice to make that shit taste like something

    Also been taking naps at work, the Mexicans are on to something.

    I honestly don't keep up with it. I'd like to think it's relatively low because i watch what I eat, but I the only thing I've ever actively tracked is protein.

    If you're doing crossfit 4-5 times a week you need to up that carb game. Fuel your workouts, aids in recovery, etc. brown rice, potatoes, etc.

    even if it was seasoned I can only take it once a week

    but I'll try seasoning it

    I think I just should not make it on the stove

    Is keto bullshit? I've been trying to keep fat and carbs down to lose some weight and it's been working pretty well so far, then I see these people on keto diets losing like 30 pounds in a month and I'm like wtf am I doing? Halp

    If you want to drop weight fast, keto will do it. Obviously not sustainable. If you want to run, lift, swim, any type of physical activity that requires a large energy expenditure, you need them carbs.

    Well, yes. If you're going keto you only need to do it for a short period. You won't have the energy to maintain performance in the gym without carbs, you won't recover as well, etc.
