Hi, Cleo. Glad you are back)

I've declared a bloody war to my belly fat as well. And, actually, it's losing.

Best luck to you)

I need to get on the body fat war as well. I've found myself craving carbs/sugar inw ays I never did when I was drinking.

Think I'm going to run a month of Whole30 - have you guys heard of it?

Secular fitness lol

Working on my atheist abs...

Seriously, 5 lbs settled on my gut out of nowhere. Peri menopause was a b*tch. Glad it was early and glad it's over for the most part and I didn't kill anyone in the process.

The only thing that got rid of the lady lump for me was cutting out grains, dairy, and sugar. I feel great. Like really great.

It is so unbearably hot here, and I've slacked on the running. I need to get my secular azz back into the gym. I don't work in the summer, so I've been on a dowhateverthehellifeellike kick and that has included a fair amount of relaxing.

I've heard of it, totally amazing if you can make it. I'm more of a lifestyle person that a dieter. Much easier to follow through when you know that if you have a bad day, you can always pick up where you left off the next day. I count calories with MyFitnessPal.com and I aim to burn 800 calories per day through running + two days of crossfit, which I eat back in my total. Yes I counted wine calories, as many as 800 which is a bottle and a half each night. When you eliminate wine you can really eat a lot of yummy stuff. In my opinion a calorie deficit diet is still the best way to go.

I know I'm going to get some backlash with this statement, but our bodies do not "need" grains or sugar. One can get plenty of carbs from fruits and vegetables. The food pyramid is useless to me.

You won't get any backlash from me, sober. I cut out grains and sugar months ago. I eat beautiful, filling, unprocessed, "whole" foods without counting a single calorie. Works for me.

I have never heard of whole30, but after googling it I see that it's paleo. Yes, that's exactly how I eat, except I also exclude nuts. The only sugar and dairy I consume is in my morning coffee. I limit that to about 4 tsp per day tops. Sometimes I skip it altogether.

LDT I don't count calories either, and I don't get hungry like I did when I ate grains, and I never feel bloated.

I'm all for secual fitness, especially with Cleo!

My extra pounds of cookies and ice cream are going away slowly, but activity is the key for me.

Ok, my secular fitness routine comprises 3 weightlifting workouts a week, 3 cardio including 2 intensive cycling classes, swimming and stretching. I am also planning to add boxing classes if I find time to squeeze it into my schedule.

I do not follow a particular nutrition program - it's just healthy eating with lean meat, veggies, fruit, low-fat diary and complex carbs. I keep nutrition diary and count calories - it's a long-term habit, I do it automatically and can quickly calculate dish calorage in my mind. And it works for me. I am not ready to give up complex carbs since oatmeal for breakfast is my all time favorite, let alone it contains a lot of useful nutrients.

My major problem, as you probably know, has been emotional binge eating. But AVRT is really of great help here and I am doing much better now. Actually, I don't do it any more. I am learning to separate emotions from eating and listen to my body instead of punishing eating with binges.

Today is my scheduled day off from the gym, but tomorrow it will be chest, arms, abs workout + cycling.

Have a great day, secular fitness pals)

It used to be so easy. I'd stop drinking for 3 weeks and lose 12-15 pounds. Not so anymore. I need to be more active or my desk job will kill me.

I got a cool gift for father's day - it's called Jawbone UP. It's a wrist band that measures my activity during the day, then at night I can download it into my smart phone and it tells me how active I was. Also measures my sleep. It's waterproof and comfortable so I can wear it all the time. Still learning to use it, but the feature I am liking the best so far is a setting I can turn on that tells me I have been sedentary for 30 minutes. The band vibrates, reminding me I need to get up and walk around. Gets me out of my chair several more times per day.

I like gadgets. Anyone else use some cool gadgets?
