    my eating was all over the place yesterday-wow did I see and feel the difference more or less instantly.eating well is so important for me,a main focus alongside staying fit and dancing.

    The book “Becoming Vegan” by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina has lots of good information, including what a vegan athlete should eat. Here’s a link for more information:

    Default This time it's really time.

    My weight is always going up and down. I start gaining too much so I lose it only to regain it again (vicious cycle)...I think it was funny back in October when I first started taking classes I decided I wanted to get rid of some of that belly...and have started to try a couple of times (my last attempt I announced on here I think was messed up when I found out I had to get my wisdom teeth out and decided to eat up everything while I could)...Now I've started classes for the second time and I weighed myself today and am now back at my highest ever weight...Humph! I was supposed to be losing belly not gaining it! So off to the grocery store tonight...when I start classes for the third time I want a SMALLER belly...grrr.

    Glad to see everyone getting in gear in the New Year!

    My focus for food is on eating as naturally as I can manage. Also I am incorporating the old saying: Eat breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess and dinner like a pauper." I usually switch breakfast and lunch though and keep dinner small with no/low carbs.

    Miss shimmy: Is porridge the same as oatmeal? I love oatmeal alot. I like to put some raisins and pecans in mine as well.

    hi girls,hows it going?
    porridge oats are bigger than oatmeal,i think thats the only difference babylonia

    stacy how much water do you drink?my nutritionalist has had me drinking HUGE amounts of water,I am already starting to feel the difference,alott of the time when our body is givinhg us hungry signals it actually just needs water.the more water you drink,the less you retain,its realy quite remarkable..

    well my book came yesterday,I have to say I skipped through the house like an exited 4 year old,i even kissed it.the book is ''psychology of dance''.

    mental(motivation,confidence,intensity,concentrati on)

    Strengths

    * I am very motivated,for the last 3 months I have danced/excercised most days.
    * I have alott of confidence,I am extremely focused,once I want to achieve something,I will not quit.


    weaknesses

    * my mind sometimes wonders onto things to do etc
    * I forget to have a good look at my inspiring piks.





    Technical (bellyrolls etc)

    strengths

    * great at pulsing the solar plexus

    Oh, well I'll certainly admit I'm not drinking enough water...which is definately a goal to start getting more in...Although I am a bit resistant to drinking huge amounts...it is always suggested and everyone says it works but it just doesn't seem natural to me...but I definately need to be drinking more than I am... But I think most of my problem is more mental/emotional than physical hunger. (And being a picky eat doesn't help) I' now have had three good days though and they haven't been hard either...I hope it continues. I'll have to start adding some exercise in. You seem like you've really gotten a pretty good handle on things though...

    Miss Shimmy is right you'll get used to the water, Stacey. In the end you'll love the taste of it!
    I used to drink quite a lot of water, but usely it gets less attractive to me when the weather gets colder. Usually I take water with me to school, but now I'm in a building where you can get free chocolate milk, so that won't help

    Hey, has one of your girls ever had a chocolate addiction (or maybe not addicted, but just feel like you need chocolate at least once a week)?
    I'm so curious to know how you manage to eat so healthy Like what do you eat as snack? What's a good substitute for chocolate?
