Questions for the Challenge!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

5) What can you improve upon?
I could improve upon where and how I gather recipes.
I definitely don't use all the resources I could.

6) Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!

Currently I'm still sick with a nasty cough, so I haven't been exercising actively. But I'm still losing weight regularly. I have been only eating food that I've been cooking. I'm concerned the weight dropping off is muscle weight. I'm just concerned that the sick weight I've been losing will come back, especially during this challenge.

    I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. It's so hard to stick to the program when you're feeling less than great. Take good care of yourself, and hopefully you'll be feeling strong again soon.

    I hope you feel better soon. Once you are feeling better, you can come back to the challenge and start working on that muscle.

    I hope you feel better soon. Wen you are able to workout, be sure to take it slow at first.

    Unless it is water, the weight won't come back as long as you are eating in your range. But get better before you work out. Yes, you lose some muscle, but unless you are sick for months, it won't take long to get your muscles back.

Hope you are better soon!!!

    My go-to source is . I can always find something there to please the family.
I wouldn't worry too much about the muscle loss. You need rest to get back on track in a healthy way.

I found this from Huffpost Healthy Living
3870.html :

"One last piece of great news if you're feeling guilty about taking a break: Muscle memory actually makes it easier to regain strength than it was to build that muscle the first time. So whether that gym membership expired, you got sick or a dog ate those gym shoes (eww!), climb back up on that horse and keep on keeping on!"

Although, I will admit I've started over a few times it has been easier each time.
