    @gromit & @redcheerio Yup, you just post what you did- in whichever way you'd like.
    It started out as a Challenge courtesy of Udog, with self-determined guidelines as far as I know. There will be another challenge soon headed by Zoom, but I'm assuming it will be a separate thread.

    Thanks for the green smoothie recommendations, you guys! I was just thinking about how I can do green smoothies with a low carb diet yesterday.

    As far as exercise, after realizing how much fun I have with my tennis classes (I actually look forward to them!), I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate this concept into my workouts. Perhaps if 60% of it is social / competitive / fun, with the final 40% consisting of lifting, I might have more success.

    Looking forward to the new exercise challenge!

    definitely check out crystal light! i love that stuff.
    you can use that as a sweetener and it's delicious!
    mix the crystal light into water as a juice replacement! 0 carbs.

    Cool, thanks mmhmm!

    I'm compiling a similar list of my own, but I'm doing the non-berry fruits by whole fruit instead of by cup, and I'm including total carbs, sugar, and fiber. I might also add Glycemic Index if I get ambitious. I'll share it once I've added more info! @Udog, you might be interested, too.

    Did my workout tonight. Made myself a proper lunch. That is all.

    Tennis today. Pretty much everyone in the class has been playing longer and is better than I am, but I'm loving it. They are pushing me hard, and I'm a lot better than I was 4 weeks ago.

    I've been working out every day this week, but no really intense stuff. Tonight, I did all five segments of a 10 minute fat burning dance thing on Netflix Instant, so it was a fun, 50 minute cardio thingy with a few squats thrown in.

    I'm ready to get back to eating better, though. I gained back the few pounds I'd lost doing the Brazil Butt Lift and eating right. With the crazy heat we've been having, it's been much more tempting to have a daily Slurpee, too.

    I've given up 'fad diets' since weight loss is strictly about more calories out than calories in. You could lose weight eating only twinkies if you burned more calories per day than you ingested. Low carb is kinda disgusting but I can do the easy "no to little white starches and as little sugar as possible".

    And @mmhmm and @redcheerio (wait...who else was on the Vitamix kick? I thought it was redcheerio...) I accidentally juiced MUSTARD GREENS. I didn't realize until the hot burning green fire attacked my taste buds. It was GOD AWFUL. I have been too traumatized to touch my juicer since. And yes, I did drink the WHOLE thing because it was just too wasteful not to (I had juiced a cup of blueberries and a carrot before the mustard greens).

    Anywhoo, I did hydrostatic body fat testing and was able to allay any body neurosis. I am in 'normal' range for my age and height (and even have ever so slightly higher than average metabolism! whoohoo!) and now I have scientifically verified realistic goals! Whee!

    Are we betting money btw? Because that's a motivation.
