    Taking a break from Cathe-part 2

    I actually took a 3 month-long break from all Cathe dvds, from December through February! It was really hard, but totally worth it. I learned some really great workout tips during that time and improved my diet dramatically. I just started doing Cathe tapes again this month and it was so...

    Percentage of calories from fat?

    I have stayed between 10 and 20% for about 2 months now. I have dropped a lot of extra water weight and some fat. I feel much better eating this way and I have a lot more energy. I have just started P90X for the 1st time and the increased energy has helped tremendously. Plus, my recovery...

    P90X: Weights or Bands?

    Thanks guys! I'll stick with weights for this round and maybe try bands next time. I actually already bought a pull-up bar (I opted for the door gym because it doesn't screw into the molding). I tried it out today to see if it was a piece of junk or not. Well, it works great, but I suck...

    Why do men?

    Like he told you, he is not willing to change. If you go back to him now, you will only regret it later. And even though he may change in the future, you can't count on it and should not let your life revolve around it. Just worry about yourself for now and good luck!

    Raw for 30

    I ate more nuts on Sunday and was really sleepy again. I am guessing that my cravings are due to boredom, but that will change pretty soon (I am very busy with work for Thanksgiving). Yesterday wasn't any better. I refrained from any nuts, but I had chocolate instead!!!! Grrrr....oh well...

    Raw for 30

    Dee, your post made me laugh! My boyfriend actually refers to me as two different people: Rational Swayze and Hungry Swayze. I used to ask him for bites of food that he knew I could not have. He would then say, "Hungry Swayze, What have you done with Rational Swayze?" :) Luckily, I haven't...

    Raw for 30

    Your are correct, Dee. I eat only fruit, between 5-7 servings, for the first two meals and then the last meal is another 5-7 servings of fruit along with some greens and/or veggies. I have been having some trouble incorporating greens in my diet, as I just do not like them. As far as food...
