Glad things are going well Drea re it getting easier!!

& wow Congrats KK!!!!That is awesome!!

As is your comment to me, Victoria!! You have made my day Right back at you
Oh & that link was Lola's... I was trying to "save precious forum space" by copying that link, instead of my list Btw that wasn't meant to sound sassy (cheek?)

I am about to go do a 5km (over 10 miles *eeek*) walk to work... Husband just took the car to get it serviced & I had the choice of leaving at 7.30 in the morning which would mean racing round & then hanging around once there for over 2 hrs as I don't start till 11am... Or walking - I am allowing 2 hrs (hopefully enough time) so will head off in half an hr...  It's an absolutely glorious day already so I am looking forward to the exercise & the sunshine!!

Hang in there Goldie & jaynee & anyone else..!! We're in this together!! Trailing after KK!! Re the lettuce!! Love it & eat heaps!! Hmmm wonder where lettuce particularly romaine (or cos = same thing) fits in that list??!!

Will post more details re my progress later...after work Must go pack my bag...


What a challenge Possum!  10 miles at 20 minute miles is a two hour walk!

If you have access to a pool or place to swim (hello, Pacific ocean ALERT!), maybe that would be an option for cross-training?


Me in a bathing suit at a pool?  Let's wait a year on that okay? L O L!

Um, no. I think I calculated that wrong.

To walk 10 miles in 2 hours, you have to walk faster than that.  15 minute miles would get you 8 miles toward work.

Hey, maaaaan:  if ya got it, flaunt it!  Let it all hang out, KK!  Cue Albie in "La Cage au Folles":  I am what I am!

I might be swimming on Thanksgiving, as I'm going to be at a house with a pool and was told, bring a suit.  Come to think of it, I'd better get a suit.  Thank God for Amazon, although I have NO IDEA what size swim suit I now wear, or even what swimsuit sizing is.  ANYWAY:  don't you worry about looking perfect, it's all about health.  Get out there with your radiant, grain-free self and plunge into that Pacific, out and proud!

The above calculation is wrong... Answer: 5 km = 3.10685 mi.    

This should be pretty easy in 2 hours...

I haven't worn a bathing suit in ages; I wear swimming shorts and a spandex-y full coverage workout top (sleeveless) (no midsection showing on this girl).

Congratulations on the fat loss, KK (I'm supposing that's what it is since you have been walking regularly). Can you see a difference in the way your clothes fit?

I groomed the dog from h*** today. She didn't like any part of the grooming process, except the part where she got to go home!

Was it a big doggie Drea?

Clothes are a little looser.  I am "almost" into a smaller size of a different brand that what I'm wearing now. Once I get over this sewing hump of difficult orders, I might add some light weights in the afternoon/early evening to step up my game.

Its good to see P. T. on this thread!! She's the ultimate role model popping in to cheer us on!!
I really like my dance workout, NIA!!! It's a blast. An hour of dancing that's energetic but not intense.
Tonite we had lamb chops with big salad, artichokes and hannah sweet potatoes.mmmmm.
I spent the day pricing my artwork for a big show, boy its hard to do...how to put a price on art!

Sometimes the small dogs are harder than the big ones (Ella, the Poodle/Bischon mix was today's hassle) because they are so light they can pick up both feet to thwart any foot work like scissoring, clipping, or toe nails. Poor thing; you should have heard me screaming my frustration. Her human was happy, though.

Another day without sugar or wheat. I didn't eat a real meal until dinner , but it hit the spot, and I was done eating before 7:30pm.

While I love that it gets light earlier, I don't love that it gets dark earlier. And neither do the dogs in the kennel.

Walking around your neighborhood is cheap.  All you need are good shoes and a desire to get fit.

You seen our neighbourhood? It's up hill & down dale all the way - worse on the way back & more often blowing a gale, than not... That is another reason we don't walk as often as we should!! But things are gonna change!! Today was a perfect day (rare in Wellington, but they do happen )

The hills usually make for a more delightful scenery...  Wind can be annoying initially, but you get used to it if you're out in it often...  My mom always said, "Well, you'll get all of the stink blown off today..."  Of course, for me, she always added, "You better put some rocks in your pocket."  
I guess she didn't think I had enough in my head...

Yeah the hills do indeed mean we have fantastic views!! & There isn't any pollution in Wellington either!! Hmm somehow I never have got used to it though & absolutely loved having no wind to muck up my hair, while in LA...

Also LA gave me a chance to wear dresses, skirts etc that I would never dare wear in Wellington I made the mistake once (only once ) of wearing a wrap around skirt one windy day here...Well suffice to say, it was a traffic stopper, when trying to cross a road while carrying something (which meant I had no hands free)

Ha ha! what an image, Possum!
We've had houseguests and folks around a lot this last week, making it a challenge to focus on my own foods, but I've done fine. I'm trying to make it a lifestyle, so that in planning a large dinner it just comes naturally to use the right foods. Sure one night I made rice...I just didn't eat it.
So, what'll it be tonite?  .......meatloaf? mmm. yup.

KK here, Day 61 grain free.  Can I make it 365 days?  That will be my goal.  365 and beyond!

Breakfast was leftover turkey patty, a few bites of portabello mushrooms and a stir fry concoction of taro and white onion.  The taro tasted like a french fry!  I loved it.


ETA:  Funny wrap skirt story Possum!

Sounds like a paraphrase from Buzz Lightyear with a twist...

Great job in maintaining your grain-free for weight loss campaign...

If I remember correctly, I'm 19 days sugar and wheat free! My goal is 30 days, then one day at a time after that.

Way to go jayneeo! That's a great testimony to how well you are doing if you can have two minor mis-steps and keep on trucking.

And thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm really glad I don't have any chocolate available to me because I'm craving a piece of dark chocolate right now. Funny, I haven't had any cravings for a couple of days.

Could it be hormonal? Or low magnesium? Or both?

Drea, are you avoiding blackstrap molasses at this time?  A tsp of that satisfies a similiar taste need for me.  There's a certain strong bite that reminds me of good coffee or good chocolate.
