    Hi Heather!

     

    Thanks, I'm both excited and glad to get to host this season.

     

    haha well you're welcome to pop in anytime, you lurker you lol

     

    I recommend learning about it on www.earthclinic.com . It goes into detail and explains the other benefits ACV has other than promoting weight loss. The website has been very helpful for me.

     

    Happy wedding planning!

I really need to get my butt into gear beore the wedding, but just not...quite...there. But I see y'all talking about ACV, so I'm going to google it now to see what all the fuss is about!

        5am? Wow, that's early, but you're right it'll be worth it.

        How long is the bootcamp usually?

         

        Good for you on starting the bootcamp. =] 

         

        Would you mind telling us how it went afterwards? I've been curious about bootcamp workouts and wanted to know how it is. I would appreciate it.

         

        Good luck tomorrow!

            I ran back out and bought some so i can start my work week out with the ACV...organic...unfiltered and pasteurized...Field Day Organic brand...on sale for all of $3.39 for a 32 oz bottle.

             

            I will let let you know what I think of it :)

             

             

            I used crushed up walnuts with some splenda for a crust for a low(ish) fat and carb cheescake I made a couple weeks ago...I brought it to a party (generally I am the wine girl..I don't make the food) and it was almost all gone...and people actually liked it...simple no bake recipe...but more locarb..than low-calorie.

             

            Is anyone else doing low-carb?  I can post some of those recipes....

            I think the most I really ever miss while dieting is desserts. So, I'll definitely make sure to post some more healthy dessert recipes during the season and of course with some chocolate ones for those chocolate lovers out there. I'm thinking of changing the 'recipe of the week' to 'recipe of the day' because I have lots of recipes to share and Stacey(stachr) sent me a very yummy recipe earlier today.

             

            As for the ACV shopping, Don't forget to get the organic and raw/unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the 'mother' still in it, not the regular cooking one. Bragg is the brand I use, but I know there's other good ones too (forgot the names). They sell them in the organic section at most grocery stores.

                Wow Teira -- good luck!  I am not a morning person, so I doubt I would last more than a day.  That is totally awesome.  I did a "fit chicks" boot camp about a year ago and really enjoyed it, although I found it very tough at the beginning.  It definitely pushes you.

                 

                Msmarmar123 -- I am also doing low carb right now -- I find it really works for me (when I stick to it, that is).  I bought the south beach cookbook which has some great recipes that I use regularly.  I usually have a protein shake for breakfast, so that is not a problem.  My biggest challenges are lunches at work when people invite me to eat out, and also when FI eats junk around me...

                  I myself have started back with my trainer. I found that really helped kick me into gear earlier this year. He's so motivating, and because I know I have to answer to him each week, I keep going to the gym the rest of the week! I'm seeing him tomorrow morning again, and I've started going to the gym in the mornings, 4-5 times a week. Work has been insanely busy lately, and I'm staying until well past 6, so the gym is the LAST place I want to go after a long day! So mornings it is :)

                   

                  Those berry pudding cakes look yummy, and I love trying out new recipes.

                   

                  I'm really excited about this whole challenge!

                    I'll definitely give crushed walknuts a try.

                     

                    I'm not necessarily doing low-carb mostly low sodium and low calorie, but if there's ways to lower the carbs in a meal, then great!

                     

                    Look forward to seeing some of the low-carb recipes you have =] Thanks for sharing

                    This past week was only the initial weigh-ins with August 27th as the start date, so we still have the full 12 weeks to go. It's never too late to join in the non-competing category. However, The deadline for the competing category was earlier this weekend. Sorry =[

                     

                    The non-competing entry is the same as competing, only you wouldn't be eligible for the win. If that is fine with you, then you're free to send in your initial weigh-in anytime. Just please make sure to read the first post for instructions/rules.

                     

                    Hope to see you join in =]

                      I am on a (life-long) gluten free diet so I already have to be careful what I eat.  When I was first diagnosed 2 years ago, I dropped 20 lbs during the first few months.  Since then I've been finding ways to replace all the "bad" stuff I used to eat, which is not helping keep the weight off!  (On the positive side, I've become quite the baker!  LOL) 

                       

                      So now I'm focusing on eating small meals throughout day and everything in moderation.  I'm terrible at actually going to the gym so I'm forcing myself to walk at least 2 miles every night, whether I want to or not.  Maybe once I develop a routine I can re-introduce myself to the gym.

                       

                      I think everything is easier with a partner but all my friends have small kids and it's not easy to take a power walk around the block if you're chasing a rowdy 2 year old down the sidewalk.  So I'm determined to do this on my own and prove to myself I can.
