    The only way this will work is if I buy something to replace the soda that I can just grab without any prep work, that I like and will consider an indulgence. I can't be trusted otherwise because I will feel deprived.
    Here's what I'd do--get down to just 1 can or even half a can a day, and up your exercise. Then if you start seeing results, you might not even want the soda. (It works that way for me.) And if you're seeing results, you may be able to keep some soda in, just less than you used to drink. It might take a little while to see results, so don't panic. Also, drinking soda once a day won't cause blood sugar spikes all day long like spacing them throughout the day. I like Coke Zero a lot, but diet drinks usually only work for me as a replacement for the second sugary drink I would have had. Like you, I 'd feel deprived if I totally replaced all my favorite stuff with diet stuff. If you just try to drink less (and one time a day) of the regular Coke, I think you'll still do okay. It's always better not to think in a "diet" mindset, I think. Too easy to go, "Screw this! I'm doing what I want!"

    20 minutes pilates today. I think I actually did them right this time.

    How do you know how much of the weight is just you being fat and how much is because you have a large frame?

    you can get a body fat analyzer from most places that sell exercise equipment... not entirely accurate, but it's a lot more informative than just a scale if you're trying to keep track of fat loss

    Everyone, please remember that weight is just a guideline, okay? Please don't freak over weight measurements. Muscle weighs more than fat. And everyone has a different build and body type, so don't be disheartened!

    QFT! Never go by just the scale.

    I went and tested out a yoga class last week, it was aiiright, and particularly humorous when the instructor started undertaking some 'face-yoga' I think I managed not to laugh out loud with how freaken hilarious it looked but it was quite an effort. Picture someone who looks and sounds just like Judge Reinhold's character in Axel Foley, Det. William 'Billy' Rosewood, then imagine him leading exercises like [in slow, calm voice] 'now just pull your bottom lip up over your top lip... like this' *pulls over with great dexterity* and 'stare at the end of your nose, then off into the distance and back at the tip of your nose again, ok'

    Anyhoo, I'm supposed to be heading off to my Krav Maga class now but I've injured myself and there's nothing I could do I wanna go!

    I'll do something else slower and more gentle on my own, but disappointed with that one.

    This challenge is both too competitive and too trendy for me (), but I have a question you exercise-conscious lot might be able to help me with. What's the best way to reduce muscle-soreness the day after a workout? Do hot or cold showers help at all?
