Re: The First 7 Days

Day 4 here too Maria and hi to everyone else too. Fleeting thoughts of alcohol but nothing major. I've been drinking due to boredom so I need to tackle that. Boredom is often my problem.

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Really accomplished lot you are.... well done. I went for my first walk this morning.. only half a hour and sweated up a storm but if I do it twice a day I want to drop these 10kgs I put on over the last year...

Re: The First 7 Days

One of today's tips I got via email to get through cravings is to set a timer for 15 minutes, do something else such as take a walk, eat, do something relaxing, phone someone then when the timer goes off see how you feel and of the craving passed. If not try doing something different and time it ag...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

I have a big mound of mashed potato. (w) I'll be around in half an hour, keep it warm for me :twisted: Been on the treadmill this morning. Week 3 of Couch to 5k. It was ok and my legs already look more toned. Ah that's great! Good to see a difference so quickly. I keep thinking I should get back to...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Actually, I might get sweet potatoes today, for me, they’re lower on glycaemic index ;)? Oooh I really like sweet potatoes - just as tasty as potatoes, I think! Have you tried riced cauli served as mash? It's nice too. I mean, it doesn't fool you into thinking it's mashed potatoes, but it's nice :D

Re: Personal Goals

I think you’re right though because I do work with the vulnerable so I’m probably better to air on the side of caution. I really think you should, Kath. Not at all meaning to have a go at you, but this is exactly how it spreads - it's so so infectious and some people don't even realise they have it...

Re: Personal Goals

Well Done ruby \:)/ Hi everyone ;)? Not sure if I should isolate. I have breathlessness and a slight cough. But everywhere I read it say persistent cough which it definitely isn’t and it doesn’t say to isolate over breathlessness so I guess I just wait and see if cough gets worse? Breathlessness is...

Oh, for sure! Unfortunately I've experimented and found that not dieting also makes you fat :twisted: :lol: :twisted:

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

The combination of protein and fat can help you to feel fuller for longer. You could also try avoiding sugar-free products because the fake sweeteners apparen...
