GettinFit ~ Yes, it's really bad for me. I could eat sugar all day long and be just fine with it. I need a major detox from it this week. No snack bars with chocolate in it, no tapioca puddin' snacks (just the sugar-free jello snacks), no ice cream, no sugary snacks that my hubby has stashed in the cupboard. Once sugar gets a hold of me there is no turning away! We can do this...I'm so glad you've regrouped and are ready to start fresh! We can do this!

Emme - it is amazing what sugar can do to your appetite. It was a mistake for me to buy the 100 calorie snacks in bulk. Once I got started, I just couldn't stop. I have cleaned out the pantry and there are no more. I am definately back on track today. I didn't even use my coffee creamer this morning since it has sugar in it. Black coffee is something I could never do but I did this morning. I am determined to have a great week!

I am jumping in really late, but I hope to get a good start over the next two weeks. I hope no one minds. I am very impressed by your tickers, so this seems like a good place to start for success!

1. Lose 5 lbs by Sunday, July 3
2. Follow Runners World 8 wk beginning runners program (walk/run 30 mins/6 days)
3. Check in every other day
4. Follow SB P1
5. Write down everything I eat for the next two weeks (even when I fall off the wagon

Thanks everybody!

Spudgirl - The more the better so just jump right on in. Your goals are great. Let me know how Phase 1 goes for you. I started today just to get all the sugar out of my system. A few years I did SB and lost 13 pounds during P1. We'll see how it goes this time.

Good evening ladies,

I'm happy to say that I had a very successful day! I stuck to my plan of no sugar or carbs today and I feel great! I have not had an urge to cheat and I have a ton of energy.

Has anyone tried Sugar Free Popcicle fudge pops? OMG they are so good. I had to check the box to make sure I didn't mistakingly buy regular ones.

Have a great evening everyone and let's gear up for a perfect OP day tomorrow.

Morning, ladies!

GettinFit ~ I will have to look for those. And good for you for sticking to your plan! I hope your no sugar/no carb cleanse goes really well! I bet your body will thank you for it!

Hope everyone else is doing great! I'm up 2 pounds from four days ago from all the crappy sugar I ate over the weekend, so I am just going to stay focused, drink lots of water, and keep exercising. That's all I can do, right? The rest is up to my body!

My goals for June:

1. Check in here daily
2. State my daily affirmations
3. Count my PointsPlus values (PPV), daily
4. Attend WeightWatchers meetings, weekly.
5. Continue with Insanity challenge 6x a week.
6. Make it into the 210's!
7. 5 fruits/veggie servings a day, minimum


Hi everyone,

So the last few weeks have been stressful ones for me due to an unexpected change at my job (which included a significant change to my schedule and a different work location, different responsibilities...) and also my fiance moving into my apartment. With all that stress and adjustment, I put on some weight! But now that I am somewhat settled into the newness at my job and settled in terms of my living situation, I'm back on track.

This past weekend was somewhat OP - I counted my points plus values (and was more or less on target), been sticking to my daily affirmations, and eating my five fruits and veggies. All month I've been learning/accepting the importance of preparation and planning when it comes to my health pursuits, and put that into effect in terms of my food choices. I have lost the stress weight from a couple of weeks ago! I have not kept up with my Insanity challenge workout however...but that is going to change when I get home from work today (because I planned for the 45 minute workout today!) I've also been going to my Weight Watchers meetings and participating more (a problem for me in the past).

So I just need to check in here more often. Hopefully the next nine days will bring me a bit closer to the 210's!

I hope everyone has a great OP day!

Tricia ~ I'm so glad everything has become less stressful for you...you had a lot going on!! It's cool that you do the Insanity DVDs and I read through your blog...I am soooo tempted to buy them, but I don't want to fork over the money. I can't wait to see what you think of it after you have completed it! I love hearing about results, pros/cons, etc.

Good morning everyone,

Tricia - I'm glad things are settling down for you and that you're doing good with WW now.

So far today is going very well. I'm still sticking to my low sugar & carb plan for a few days. I did my workout yesterday and will get one in today. It's been too hot to walk so I'm resorting to DVDs.

I hope everyone is having a great day.

no exercise. My hip, wrist and left ankle {stabilizer muscle} all got iced today, plus I'm feeling kinda sinus-y. I hope I"m not getting a summer cold. The the hip from a LB workout last week{leglifts}, left ankle from a Leslie day before yesterday?, and the wrist is ongoing but hasn't been sore for about a week, then started again today. Grr, but everything is feeling better. Tomorrow is supposed to be long cardio so I skipped today to keep on track tomorrow. I have a meeting/luncheon tomorrow so that should be fun!

Tues 21
B= Banana protein shake, vits
L= corn 'off' cob, refried beans {clean out the fridge lunch}
S= chips
D= chicken soup, bread/butter
S= PB ice cream
S= cereal {mistake! poured too much and got overfull, but gave the rest to the dog}
E= none

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Last night sucked! Our freezer/fridge went out and almost all of our food spoiled. I am running on no sleep and it's a long work day for me. But, through all of the stress last night I managed (somehow) to not freak out and eat to help me get through the stress. I just dealt with it. I hope my day goes by quickly...

I hope you all have a great OP day!
