You sound really positive and motivated at the moment. Way to go!

Don't be disheartened by how much more difficult it is to run outdoors than it is on the treadmill. Training on a treadmill is a good alternative and can help build you up for running outdoors. I actually find treadmills harder cos it gets so boring! I can run for ages outdoors but I struggle to do even 10 mins on a treadmill.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Well yesterday was kinda good kinda bad...
The days always start out heaps well!!

One day a week, Im meant to be having a low-carb day, where I try to avoid carbs as much as possible, like breads, cereals, things like that... And Im having lots of trouble... So if anyone has some good ideas, let me know please!!!! Cuz I really need help on this part, I suck at low-carb! :(

Anyway Im back on track today, and Im also wondering if I should try maybe some weight-loss supplements to help me with lossing weight? Would be glad to hear anyone's input...

P.S. is beer full of carbs?

Beer is full of carbs I'm afraid. There are low(er) carb beers such as Pure Blonde but they still contain carbs, just a bit less than normal beer.

May I ask why you're doing one low carb day per week? Is it on the instruction of your PT or from a dietitian? If you're finding it really hard to stick to maybe it's simply not for you. I personally don't do low carb for that exact reason.

What do you currently eat on your low carb days? Perhaps if you post what you eat someone who follows a low carb plan can critique it and give you advice.

On instruction from my PT...
Normally on a low-carb day i eat along the lines of...

Brekkie - 2xeggs
Morning tea - Protein supplement
Lunch - Meat (chicken, turkey, beef) and salad
Afternoon tea - Protein supplement
Dinner - Meat (chicken, turkey, beef) and vegetables

Pretty boring...
I love carbs, and compared to how much carbs I used to eat, I've cut back tenfold!!!
So these days are really hard!!! :(

Damn about the beer, lucky I dnt drink them very often...
Is white wine any betta?

Here's an article on alcohol and carbs. It looks like your best bet would be spirits such as vodka, rum or whisky which contain 0g of carbs.

I hope someone here can give you some good advice on making your low carb days a bit more exciting. I think I have a low carb vegetarian recipe book somewhere around here. I'll have a look tonight and see if I can find any recipes that might help.

Thanks for your help EWQ!!

Well I've started the week really well!!!
Carbs are under control!!! Thank god, so its looking like Im bak on track! :)

Got in 40min of Cardio yesterday, hoping to get in 90min today and tomorrow is REST Day! Love those days, I get 2 a week, but latley its been a bit more than that :shock:

Uni also started yesterday, which doesnt exactly mean that much for me as I do it by correspondence, but it now means that all my spare time goes in to reading and studying my text books... YAY... I love being locked up in my room :p

Well I'll be a bit upset this week if I don't lose weight...
I've really put in the effort this week!!!
Food has been really good except for the otha day, when my Mum came to visit and we had coffee and then I realised that it had like 50g of carbs in it... AHHH
Exercise could be upped a bit, gonna try and get in 30min at lunch and another mayb 90min afta work...

It's so hard trying to get up early, every night befor I go to bed I set my alarm for 5.45am to get up to go to the gym, every time i hit snooze :( grr me!!! MUST GET UP NEXT TIME!!! I have no idea how I am gonna surive in winter, especially now that footy season is coming up, will have to pack a picnic :P

It's great that your PT let you change to an afternoon. I'm not a morning person either. I hate mornings enough without adding intense physical exertion into the equation.

Good to see you sticking to it, WG. Good on you!

Well it's definatley been ages since I've been on here - and a long time since I've actually stuck to any food and exercise plan :(
I lost around 8kg between Dec - Jan, and have somehow managed to put it all back on!!!! grr Only have myself to blame though.

But Im getting back on track!!! Im serious!
I've entered into the City2Surf, which is happening on the 9th August in Sydney - so all you sydney fold should probs get a move on and join in.
I've also planned (well nearly) a holiday to New Zealand next year - so I gotta get going so I can look hot for all the boys!!! :)

Well I will keep you updated and let you know how I go.... Here's to a new me!!! :)
