What Worked for ME in 2008

Saturday, January 10, 2009

What Worked for ME in 2008:

Eating at the high end of my protein allowance
Eating at the low end of my carb allowance
Giving up (95%+ of the time) Sugar and White Flour
Weight Training with going heavy
Tabata at 5am for five minutes (Again, Thank you Donna)
Circuit Training
Letting go of bad relationships
Meeting new friends
Going out Dancing
Joining a gym
Continuing to use the food tracker DAILY
Logging onto MMM's coffee thread every morning to focus myself for the day

What Didn't Work in 2008:

Too much Wine!

I will continue to do what works for Me in 2009 and Never stop learning.

    Wow, Gabby - you are my heroine - not just for the demanding regimine, but also for having the hindsight to evaluate what you are doing. THAT is why you are such a shining success. All the best to you in 2009!

    gabs, i think you are still one of my biggest inspirations here on SP. it's amazing how ardently you do what you do. and i think you've finally convinced me to startthat tabata thing. i've looked into the videos a couple of times and just couldn't picture myself trying it, but considering how many days a week i don't get a chance to do much cardio i should at least establish a wake-up routine like that.
keep us updated what new stuff you are discovering - it seems to work REALLY great for you!

    Kettlebells & Tabata?? And I thought wine helped a person digest food? So one glass with dinner should be okay....
