    Me & my OH have been invited to the in-laws for a BBQ on saturday, I told OH that I didnt fancy it & that he should go on his own - mainly because I just cant face the constant questions about why im not eating this and that. There will be nothing paleo friendly salad wise, and I know that if I just put some meat on my plate everyone will start commenting & I just CBA.

    Its a bit sad to miss out on social things because of the 30 days challenge but thats exactley what it is = 30 days. I am happy to give up a BBQ to keep me on track - Ive got all the time in the world to enjoy social events after the challenge is over & i go back to the 80-20 rule.

    Thats such a great attitude.... its only 30 days..... you'll be bbq'ing before you know it!!!

    Arrrghghghgh!!

    Im really frigged off today,

    Ive had a brilliant weekend but I "injected" some sugar on Friday and ive just binged all weekend.

    I got on the scales & im now 76.8 kilos.

    I also had trouble sleeping every night, lethargy, and no motivation to do anything whatsoever.

    It started on Friday night when i got in from work, I had a sugar free dark chocolate bar, and it just wasnt hitting the spot, I think I had a cookie or something from the cupboard and then It was just a rampage from there. Its annoying because with Paleo I dont usually have cravings.

    I think it was the 30 day challenge, cutting out grains completely, and all sugar including honey is too restrictive and i seem to rebel against it. So Im just going back to eating clean and moving more. Ill take my cals down to 1300 this week (and excersize) to shift some weight then back on track I go....

    Bootcamp tonight, im going to kick my own a$$ lol x

    I try to limit my sugar but i have about a teaspoon of honey a day and maybe 1 piece of fruit.....

    You can do it hun!!!

    Thanks deezer! I think its just too restrictive for me personally.

    So, I had a great day yesterday, stuck to 1300 cals and did my bootcamp - we did a 6 minute run which the first time I did I had to stop 3 times to catch my breath....last night I only stopped once, right at the end!!

    Its spurred me on to do couch 2 5k this week. I really need to commit to excersizing 5 nights out of 7. Even if its just for 30 minutes. I work hard, but im sat at a desk all day and probably only do about 4000 steps. theres no excuse really.

    Im getting rid of this last 8 kg. wooooooooooooopah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have you thought about looking into Tabata or interval training.... Its not very time consuming... you'll be able to google all the details.... But it blasts fat apparently...

    I'm starting doing it tomorrow on my airdyne.... I may do Press ups and kettle bells too

    Hmmm...sounds interesting ill give it a google tommorrow when I get into work!

    Right now im trying to mix it up and just try to get into the routine of doing excersize and enjoying it. I would so love to be one of those people who can just go for a 5k run without stopping. I will be one day

    Morning all (well, its morning here!)

    So Last night i did day one of C25K - I have to be honest, once I dragged myself outside to the park I really really enjoyed it. AND - I didnt feel like I was dying at the end either. In fact - I got home, made tea, watched corrie (we have it on UKTV over here but we are about 7 weeks behind you in the UK) and then around the time I would usually shower, I felt really really energetic.

    So I cleaned the house, did a wash, made tea for tonight, and lunch for me and OH, I even cleaned the toilet - the house was sparkling! Then I had a quick shower, jumped into bed and slept like a baby until this morning.

    My OH woke up and was like: - He thought the fairies had been.

    Anyway If I get that after every run, I will be a very happy bunny indeed...I dont know wether its because im not used to the extra endorphins... or what but it was great.

    Ate well yesterday, kept it at 1200 cals, so after weigh in if ive lost I will increase it to 1500 next week and continue 5 days of excrsize.

    Another fab food day yesterday and did my Bootcamp.

    Felt a little tired but think thats due to the increased amount of excersize (and my frenzied cleaning night last night) and I didnt have time for my 3.30pm snack - so not much energy but I still had a great workout.

    C25K tonight and tommorrow morning (early, like 7.30am) - then im resting until Monday. Ill still try and have an semi-active weekend but 5/7 days is all im committing to at the moment!

    Hello all!

    Well its Tuesday morning here in Aus and I have the delightful Aunt Flo visiting.

    I weighed myself this morning and im still 75kg. ARGHHHH. Ive been calorie counting all weeek (1200-1300 a day) - and excersizing 5 times a week for 30 minutes a day (which is way more than i used to) - and yet im the same

    I dont understand it! I know im not going over cals cause i check em carefully, im trying to eat as clean and primal as possible although i have the odd bowl of cereal for breakfast...and yet no movement. I know I dont have any problems losing weight, if i go on vlcd i can drop 10kg like that! *clicks* - but i dont WANT to do a vlcd, its not healthy and thats my ultimate goal really - health.

    Im NOT giving up though. Bootcamp tonight, then im going to cook up some black bean chilli for lunch all this week. I do kind of feeeeeeeel slimmer though?

    Are you eating your exercise calories back? If not then you may be eating too little. 1200-400 (for example) only leaves your body 800 to be getting on with.

    Or your body might be one of those that finds 1200 too little?

    Are you measuring yourself? If you feel slimmer than you're likely improving muscle tone and shedding fat. You won't be lighter but you will be smaller and healthier.

    Also, everyone's favourite aunt can screw things up but this weight should go again afterwards. Hang in there and don't let a plateau stop you finding a way to meet your goals the way you want to. x

    I also find that when I exercise 3 or more classes a week that my weight is slower to drop.. Took about 3 weeks to see the drop .. And then only because I had a rest week lol
