Another month draws close- the struggle is real
Still fighting the same battle I've blogged about the few times, the dreaded plateau. I tried upping my calories, didn't work. Now I'm trying lower them to see that does anything for me. So frustrating argghhh!... Read more
Not where I want to be but grateful for where I am
I've made a mention or two of being at a plateau since March. I'm continuing to work on breaking it and I am confident that change will eventually come. While the wait to see change while putting in consistent effort is frustrating, I remind mys... Read more
That's my current situation. Scale hasn't moved since mid March. I gave up low carb, changed my workouts, varied my calories and still nothing! Any advice for me?... Read more
Anyone can do anything for X minutes
That is a trick I use to finish up or start things when I'm not motivated or when I find them particularly difficult. For example, in a particular tough workout with an exercise move I don't particularly enjoy, I often get through that part of m... Read more
My experiment with low-carb is over for the moment. It last 7 months longer than initially planned. There was good benefits and I will continue to practice some of the things I learned. It certainly helped me reduce my sugar consumption and I'll... Read more
I hate Spring and Fall too for that matter

Improvement and observations
I've manage to wrangle my calorie intake under control, it is still a little hard to keep it under control, takes more work and willpower than I am used to exerting but nothing is impossible and a little hard work never killed anyone.

The Struggle Is Real
Been struggling this week with calories and keeping carbs low, it's not because of any cravings but I've just been very hungry this week. I'm not talking crazy calories, more like 1,800 or so per day but that's a lot more than my normal 1,400. I... Read more
So after pondering it a bit more, I've decided that I'm going to carb cycle so I'll eat very low carb for several days in a row- 5 or more- followed by a day incorporating some complex carbs but still keeping it in the 100-150 grams range. I'll ... Read more
