    German Amazon's booklett

    Day 1 on the hero's diet. It was/is a good day. No sweets and stuck to the rules the best I could considering I'm in the middle of the night shift.
    My foot feels so much better!! Will start the foundation light workout tomorrow after I've slept. I think my foot could take more, but I had better be carefule. AoP is not running away. I can start it when I've finished foundation.
    I want to lower my coffee intake next week too. Have to be honest it will be hard. I love my coffee, it's why I want to cut down. I'm up to two coffee pots a day right now. 4 cups per day is more than enough!

    Tonight I will finish work then home and bed. I get to sleep in, and just relax. Monday is my next work day, then Wendsday. Then off for the rest of the month.

    Day 2. And I did the first foundation light day. At first I thought oh nice and easy good for my foot. Now I can feel my legs thanks to the side kicks. I loved them! No they do not hurt and they are not sore, I can just feel them. I want to do another round while watching TV.

    I did my first burpee today thanks to the snowball fight. Have to admit feeling proud here. I am moving my 130 kilos. Maybe not gracefully, but I'm moving it and getting fit!

    On day two hero diet I am still doing pretty good. I slept until 12:15 thanks to my night shift, so I don't need to eat much. Pancakes for breakfast, cilli con carne and rice for dinner. Maybe a microwave baked apple for dessert later. Big maybe, I still feel full. And I still need my water.

    I'm hoping I'm doing it all right. I'm really trying to listen to my body and what it tells me.

      As an obese woman that is still used to eating way to much at a single meal, I struggle to understand the meaning and feeling of being full. I think I am getting better at it, yet every once in a while I still tend to over eat.
      I am getting better at this, but at times I am terrified about the amount of food that I eat until I reach full. It is so LITTLE compared to what I am usually eating!
      Example breakfast this morning. I made banana pancakes out of 3 banana's, 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons of flour. This made 8 pancakes. I used to eat them all. Today I took more time to eat and had 3, now I feel full. I did put a 4th on my plate just in case, but right now I just know I don't need it.
      I wish I could tell positives about working out. Unfortunately I have a bad case of the flu and a sprained foot. So no exercise until both are better. So positives about exercise will come later. 😊

        Oh boy, my arms are sore! Barely 2 hours after my workout. Went to gym for the second time this week. Today was upper body, yesterday was lower body day, and tomorrow too.
        A two split I think the trainer called it.
        After every muscle workout I do a 25 minute cardio workout. And beforehand I do a 10 minute warm up. I'm hoping to see a significant difference in a month. I took a before picture, measurements and weighed myself. I think I have it all.

          Darebee's no bake breakfast bars are so good!
          I made them last night before I went to bed. It was easy to do, and it made no mess or noise. That was a great plus since hubby was sleeping already.
          I ate 1\16 this morning and was stuffed. I will freeze most of them so that they won't spoil, since I'll probably be the only one eating them. My little girl looked at them and said eww without trying. She's 2 so she's picky.
          Going to the gym later for lower body training and cardio. I am really starting to like this. 😸

              Oh boy my last check in has been a while. I did not give up or anything. I just had some medical issues.

              I am officially lactose intolerant. Kind of sucky, but it has a positiv twist. Can not have chocolate anymore, and I did love my chocolate. My freinds say take the tabletts for it. Except I truely believe if me body tells me no I should listen. It has a reason why I does not want me to digest milk and milk products.
              So now I double read nutrition labels, check the internet about what companies use milk sugar under the watery ingriedient aroma, and high light foods or meals that make me feel sick and bloated.
              it is only the beginning, but I already know that I can not eat or use butter, yogurt, parmesan cheese, abviously milk and all things made from it. Specially cream and ice cream. I get super sick from those.
              Tja.
              Guessing it has something to do with getting old.

                Well I have been absent for a very long time! I was pregnant, had my second child, a girl, and now I'm getting back into shape.
                Tuesday I went walking/jogging with some of my lady friends. I was able to do 5 rounds of the soccer track. Friday is our next meet. Yesterday we went to the folks fest here and I had to carry my baby the whole time we were there. The tire to the baby buggy popped in the car. Does that count as muscle training?
                I' m using the book "looking good naked" from Mark Maslow to help me loose the 52 kilos I want to get rid of. Excellent help together with darebee.
                As a breast feeding mom I have to watch my milk supply. It kind of slowed when I followed the modern hero diet to the letter. I guess I have to eat a bit more. For that it seems my milk supply is more dense and filling for my baby. She sleeps through the night without waking.

                I'm super happy I've found darebee. I can ask my questions here and get really good advice. I bought my vegan protein powder because so many have had good experience's with it. Being lactose intolerant I have tummy issues with normal protein powders. Strange enough I can use 0,3% fat milk without troubles. And yoghurt too. More than that though and my tummy is screwed. I don't want to use to much soy milk or products. I'm not sure it's too good for the baby. But we have oat milk and almond milk and rice milk. So I'll be trying those soon.

                After my landlord is done fixing the roof, I'm doing my errands. Tonight when the baby is in bed I'll be on my stationary bike for 30 minutes or longer. I'm walking to the bank a bit latter. Oh and on Friday my darlin hubby is getting the weight station I just bought over eBay for pennies practically.
                So all in all I'm doing my damn best to meet my 90 day goals.

                  Well it's afternoon. And I did some walking today. Later on it's still the exercise bike at home.
                  I bought myself a book. I spent 2,50€ on it. I buy magazines that are more expensive so I didn't over think it. It's the men's health fett weg formel book. It's a great help together with dare we and the look good naked book. I figure it doesn't matter that it's targeted to men. I might have to lower the calories a tad, but that should be it. After all women so burpees too!

                      Nielsen thank you!

                      Today was running day again. Oh man I was so sore! I broke in my muscle station last night. Did legs, arms and back. My legs felt stiff this morning. Still did my walking\jogging though.
                      I have over 9000 steps so far, and my day isn't over yet.
                      Let's see what I can get done.

                        Oh Sweet Honey Ice Tea, it's been 4 Years since I've last written in this booklet.
                        I've lost myself, stopped giving a dang, raised my kids. They are turning 4 and 8 now. I've been diagnosed with Rhumatism in the soft tissue. It sucks big time FYI, but I've been treating it. Lately I've been having more pains and swelling. Seems like I have to starting giving a bigger dang for myself now. My kiddos need a healthy mom. Not a busted one. It's bad enough that Dad has a broken back, literally. One of us grown ups need to be healthy.
                        So what do I need to do? I've looked at all the guides, but there is non for my condition, but I did find the weight loss ones and the motivation one. Since I'm a paper person I printed them out and put them in a binder for future rereading.
                        I'm going to use a food diary, this time completely. Not just write down what I want to look good. Only lying to myself doing that. My first rule that I will apply today is no more eating after dinner!! I am really bad about that. Chocolate and chips are my go tos after dinner. So no more.
                        I will truthfully and faithfully write in my food journal what I ate. I will learn from it. That is what helps with weight loss right? I have a good daily step count. My minimum is 8500 but it is usually higher. 8500 is a lazy day. Under that is a sick day.
                        I will do a real workout. My step count is just my daily activities. I printed out the P.E. book download. I can do that with my eldest kid if she feels like it. Or I'll go it alone. I have to still be used to that. Do about everything myself here. So working out should be no different.
                        Journaling about what has beed going well and what I struggle with will help too. I have a paper journal and I will use this booklet much more. I know if I need help I can ask the bees here. I have one girlfreind and unfortunantly she is no help at all. She is struggeling with life so I don't what to burden her with my stuff. Hubby is a bit of help but he doesn't want to do this with me. I thought he did once when his doc told him the 16 : 8 would help him with weight loss and that would help with his tremendous back pain. He kept saying I'll start on Monday and every time Monday came and went. He never started. So I can talk to him about this, but he doesn't really help much since his standard answer is mostly I have no idea.
                        So my help system is exclusivly myself and here.
                        (wow this just kind of blew me away, never realised how alone in this I truley am)

                            So that last two days I wrote down everything that I ate and drank. From these two days I can already tell I have a hell of a sweet tooth! Never really realized how bad it is until now. Yes I have been using a food journal but I was making it look pretty, not honest. Honest journaling is an eye opener.
                            I eat so many sweets! I'm like a kid without a guardian. Sugar is poison for rhumatisim. Causes so many flairs. I wonder if it's the cycle of feeling bad wanting to do something good for myself to feel better, then eat something sweet and we go from the start.
                            I need to break this. Starting now I am cutting down sweets.

                              I have a goal. Well actually two goals. #1 is I want to earn a badge here on darebee. I picked out the program square 1. I want the base for that one. Under my icon and on my wall at home.
                              #2 is the march challenge. I want to complete it.
                              Those are my march goals.
