    how to eat veggies? (from a potato-lover)

    Another vote for roasting the veggies! You can then add chili oils or spices to your oil to enhance the flavor of the veggies. My kids often dip their least liked veggies in hummus or gauc. Anything tastes good with a little guac if you ask me!

    Are any of you carb cycling and IF?

    Debinimi, Yes I have. I have lost 1.5 inches in my waist. I hold my weight in the hips and thighs so I am not surprised that this area of my body hasn't gone down yet. But, I feel so much better. I am sleeping well and truly trying to focus on eating the right foods at the right time. In...

    Are any of you carb cycling and IF?

    Yes, much thanks to the both of you. The 6 week program I subscribed to is Faster Way to Fat Loss. It promotes a 16:8 split. I can easily get to 15 hours but that last hour is very difficult for me. I have really appreciated learning about macros vs calories. I too had eaten so low carb for...

    Are any of you carb cycling and IF?

    Hello, I do not post here often but have really enjoyed reading through the posts over the years. I would appreciate any thoughts/feedback. I have recently started to carb cycle along with intermittent fasting. Have any of you tried to do so while doing Cathe (almost) exclusively? If so...

    5-day ICE/X-train/Yoga hybrid starts 6/27/16

    So far this week, things are mumming along. On Monday I went for a walk and completed 20 min of lower body pilates/outer thigh work. Barre on Tuesday and I did ICE Upper Body today. I just love the ICE upper body WO. I love that there is just enough focus on abs at the end of the DVD. I...

    5-day ICE/X-train/Yoga hybrid starts 6/27/16

    We got the AC working yesterday. Luckily the repair company had the needed part on his truck and we had AC again by noon. Yippie! Our basement was a bit of a mess because we slept down there Wed night. I picked up enough of the bedding and boxes to have a good workout space this morning. I...

    5-day ICE/X-train/Yoga hybrid starts 6/27/16

    Today I did a 30 min barre workout and I walked for 45 min. I doubt I will get a WO in tomorrow as our AC is not working. GRRR! I will probably get the family to sleep in the basement and see what the morning brings. Take Care!

    5-day ICE/X-train/Yoga hybrid starts 6/27/16

    Monday-Barre Tuesday-XT Supercuts I enjoyed doing a metabolic WO today. I did ICE Metabolic Total Body last week. I'm still searching for what my rotation will look like. Clearly I know I can't do XT 6 days a week. :) I will find my way though. I just love Cathe...she is awesome!

    5-day ICE/X-train/Yoga hybrid starts 6/27/16

    Hi Mrschi! It is great to see you out here again. I owe you a very sincere apology. I just fell out of posting towards the end of our XT rotation. My life had gotten very hectic. I was working 60+ hours, kids, basement flooded, extended family health and financial problems. On and on and...

    All aboard the X-train!

    Sorry I have fell out of posting again. We were just terribly busy this weekend. I wish we would have had more down time but it just didn't happen. My SIL has been very ill recently and we were helping with the kids. There was something going on in my house at all times! I got my workout in...

    All aboard the X-train!

    I'm back. I apologize for having gone MIA. School wrapped up for my kids last week, we had an insanely busy weekend, and work is very consuming of my time right now. In a nutshell, life is crazy right now. :) I have been working out to the Cathe schedule. Today I subbed the ICE low impact...

    All aboard the X-train!

    I have come to the point in the week where I need a break. I completed the workout today but will probably go for a walk or take a rest day tomorrow. Then I Saturday I will complete one of the two remaining workouts for the week. How is your Achilles feeling? Better I hope

    All aboard the X-train!

    I completed the HIIT workout. Glad it is behind me. I apparently don't have much affection for this workout. LOL, can't love'm all I suppose.

    All aboard the X-train!

    I completed bis and tris yesterday and legs today. I will admit that my mind is wondering now that we are in week 8. I have been thinking about ICE and am anxious to mix ICE with XT. I love the weighted work but am craving a bit more variety. Its so funny how I did the same 6 DVDs over and...
