Congrats, Claire!

I am a powerlifter and train with a team. We do bench press for about 4 1/2 hours on Mon and Deadlifts or Squats on Wed. which take about 3 hours. We all do other stuff without the team on other days. I have been doing about 2 years now and my bench went from 200 to 375lbs and my deadlift went from 286 to 520lbs. (I don't squat anymore) This has been great for my Diabetes and has strengthened my bones alot. I got hit across the legs with a solid steel bar 2 months ago and it should have broke both my legs but didn't. I had hematomas for almost 2 months I got hit so hard. I also don't have the back problems I used to have.

I am making a committment to exercise everyday for the next 3 months. Had a physical last week & the doc. has given me 3 months to get my weight down & my numbers in a safe range or I will have to go on a whole slew of medications which I am not willing to do.

No more donuts for breakfast! You will be surprised how much your numbers change with just that difference. If you need help revamping your diet just holler.

You can ask any questions, I don't want to sound like a know it all by telling you things you may already know. But, I have noticed you eat a lot of donuts and sugary cereals. And since you don't care for oatmeal, how about Cheerios and raisin bran?

Breakfast & lunch are always a challenge for me to eat healthy. I am up & out by 5:30 am. We have a small cafe/catering business so lunch is always busy. Greek yogurt & a granola bar have been working nicely around 8 am. I am always looking for quick, healthy foods to eat on the go. I would be so very happy & appreciative to hear any options you would like to share.
