CathyC-check in

I really can't believe it has been 50 days that I have been "sugar/dessert/sweets free"! I feel so much better about myself because sugar is a killer on the body-it slows my brain down and makes me depressed. I really think I don't need it in my food plan at all-I have enough carbs that I enjoy like pasta dishes and pizza always with veggies.
The only issue I have still to tame is portion control when I'm out with people-but it really is only on the week-ends which in all honesty I have to realize is not the worst thing in my nutrition/life plan-really it's just food and extra calories so I'm not "angry" about it like I was with my sugar in take. I'm at a better place and sleep peacefully.....
Also another great thing has happened in the last 10 days, I have been doing Cardio at home at 7am 6x week...I have never done that in my life-I feel so energized and fit all day! I do my free weights in the afternoons, so I get my metabolism running twice a day isn't that great?
I want to challenge myself for another 100 days on something else in November-I'm trying to think about it, it should be realistic of course!
Let me know what you are all up to too!

Back in the game

Well I'm back after 5 weeks of hermitizing. Good news is I didn't put on weight (actually lost half a kilo and centimetres off my thighs).

Back into the keto diet and hoping to offload a nice lot of fat in these last 6 weeks of the Challenge. I really need to make health and fitness a priority again even with all that's going on , I know I WILL cope better if I stick to my plan.

Hope everyone is going well!!

CathyC-where are my mates??

Has everyone just been too busy to let us know how everyone's challenge is going or am I the only nosy "skinny bones wanna-be"??!!

The Good

Not binge eating on "sugar" , what a wonderful relief not to feel powerless around it-by far my biggest accomplishment ever. I know I can do what I put my "heart" into.

Increased weights during work-outs....feeling stronger and makes me want to continue. Doing less Cardio because I am eating less carbs (no starch)

Enjoy creating and being inspired on making clean meals and working on a Recipe Food Blog

The Bad

Had a few over eats last week when out socially ,trying to portion control (I should just become a hermit-it would be easier..lol!!!)

That's it for me.

Hope you all are

Laynie’s training update: thinking about health

Should I exercise when I am sick?
Is it a cold?  The flu?  Allergies or perhaps something worse?  In Australia we are coming out of winter, and the worst season for the Swine Flu yet.  Luckily, I’ve missed it despite the resident niece having three colds this season so far.
In a recent poll most women preferred a toned buff body, or a skinny runway model look, while only 7% liked the muscled look.  Since when has it become good for a man to be muscular and therefore attractive, when muscular women are considered amazons?
