got up early and out of the house.......... ran to the gym - took a one hour strngth training class and then walked home. Its about 2 miles in each direction = so its a good way to start the day.


I did very well reducing my carbs yesterday but I have to admit I was a little hungry by the end of the day . I made a cup of chai tea to reduce the hunger - took one sip and didnt even drink it.

a rainy day in Nj today----- lots to do inside. :)

I am back to work tonight-- so glad to be back! I have to be careful not to lower my carbs too much because then my gout symptoms reappear

Much love

well I am trying to reduce carbs - and just eat the good-healthy ones. I get cranky when my carbs are too low and starved by bedtime - so hoping that eating a better selection of carbs works for me.



ran 4 miles today............ and did a one hour strength training class. sun is shining so today I will get some yardwork done.

I think getting used to a carb reduction is going to take some time. I ate properly yesterday - lower carbs------and I was hungry late at night so had a small snack. Slow and steady -- today Im down about 10% on carbs but think I will try a bottle of water when the night time hunger hits. worfth a try.


Did some cardio............ will run and strength train tomorrow. good luck all

I've been thinking about how to reduce my carbs, so I think this challenge would be a good way to work on it.

Its not so hard to reduce your carbs by 10% if you work on it................ it makes a nice difference in how your body reacts to calories. Its not a big change ---------- just enough for your body to know it has to change too.


hoping some people are trying the challenge. emoticon

Ok everyone........................... its the big B...........................( no - not boobs) - its the Big B-

---------------------Bootcamp for April--------------------

1. Carbs- Sparkpeople recommend that 50% of our calories come from carbs - the challenge is to reduce that number to 40% - and to add the extra 10% to proteins or divide it between fats and proteins ( but higher proteins would be the better choice for most).
( you can monitor that using your pie chart) you can see your pie chart by hitting the see todays full report button on the right side at the bottom of your nutrition page.

2. Strength training - Sparkpeople has a great 20 minute dumbbell workout. Go to the healthy lifestyle top tab - hit videos - then hit explore fitness videos - scroll down and you will find the 20 minute dumb bell workout - the challenge is to do this 3 times each week ( and 4 times would be better).

3. Post here to the challenge topic as often as you can - daily is great. Its the team support that helps keep us all focussed and supporting each other.


good luck on the April challenge .....and happy spring to everyone
