Looking for a new fitness program? How about trying the Presidential Fitness Challenge. This challenge comes in three varieties:

1. The Active Lifestyle Program - For those of you who aren't active on a daily basis yet, this is a great way to begin. The rules are basically to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week, for a total of 6 weeks.

2. The Presidential Champions Program - If you're already active and want a new challenge, this program is for you. Your goal is to see how many points you can earn by staying active. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns. So the more active you are, the more points you'll get. When you reach 20,000 points, you'll earn a Bronze award. Then you can continue on in the Presidential Champions program for a Silver or Gold award.

3. The Advanced Performance Presidential Champions Program - This is basically the same system as the Presidential Champions Program, except that the award goals are higher. For instance, you need to get 40,000 points to earn a Bronze award.

The Presidential Champions Fitness Program Website (where you can log your progress and also order your awards when you've reached your goal)

Also, if you want, come join the LJ pres_challenge community to chat with others who are challenging themselves with this program.

Weekly Menu for 1/5/04 through 1/11/04
I do my menus one week at a time and we do the shopping for them every Saturday. Recipes are taken from Dana Carpender's "500 Low Carb Recipes". My recipes are structured for OWL with some additional carbs added for my husband, who is in maintinence (in most cases, I simply don't eat as many servings or I don't eat the garnishes and dressings). In some dishes, like the hot and sour soup, I eliminated the tofu from my portion to cut the carbs but kept it for my husband. The carb counts listed assume the higher amount with all ingredients present. No snacks are included because we're past the need for them. Higher net carb days take into account our probable activity levels, when we might need extra energy.

I've never eaten some of these and I'm looking forward to trying the recipes out. The meatza, Asian ginger slaw, and all meat chili have become staples in our diet because they taste so good. We eat a lot of the catfish too because it's inexpensive and can be gotten fresh locally.

Anyone else interested?
With my busy schedule this week, I might not have time to do a menu for week 2. Would anyone else be interested in posting a 5-7 day menu here for the readers of this journal? If not, I'll get around to it, but it might not be as complete as the last one

Grocery list for Week 1
It's possible that i might have forgotten a few items OR that you may already have items in stock -- please check menus and your cabinets before going to the store

Grocery list

Bag salad or various lettuces (2)
Spaghetti squash

3-5 low-carb bars
Low carb bread
Flax cereal or hi-fiber cereal (like fiber-all)

Canned chicken
can tuna
Unsweetened peanut butter
Unsweetened chocolate
Classico marinara sauce (no sugar)

Bacon (precooked works out pretty well or get a package and cook it all and freeze it)
Ground beef
small steak
Deli meat (ham or turkey goes well)

no-sugar dressing (Ranch, blue cheese or a vinegarette...check Maries brand)
Cream cheese
1 block of cheese (sharp cheddar is a favorite here)

Whipping cream or half/half
10:14 pm
The first MENU
Drink at least 8oz of water with every meal. Tea or Coffee is fine in small amounts. No
refined sugar! IF you must sweeten, use Splenda or if you cannot find it, then equal is ok.
If you go out to eat, try to eat something that is about the same as what is on the menu
(like sashimi or steak with veggies, etc) NO potatoes, rice, or carbs that aren't listed. If you
drink alcohol, please make it a pure kind which means no mixers. Dirty martinis, shots
and scotch with soda are fine (tonic has sweetener, soda does not). New low carb beers
are ok, but not first choice.

If you have questions...feel free to ask. I'm basing this menu off the Atkins diet. I am not
a doctor, consult one if you feel the need. All the regular disclaimer shit.

From now on this (along with the grocery list) will be posted at the community I made just for this
