Sum- More power to you with the 5:2 plan. I know that would never work for me...I get hangry!
I went off plan yesterday but in general have been quite good about maintaining my deficit compared to past weeks, so I think the pennies are working even though I had to move one back to the left yesterday. The visual of seeing them each day is (typically) motivating.
Tonight kicks of my three dance classes in a row. I know I always train better when I eat better, so hopefully I will be able to stick with it!
