  7. You're absolutely right! I did think about it a bit more after I posted that....my only hesitation is that I ended up focusing so much on achieving the challenge that I didn't really achieve my goals the first time I tried a challenge. I spose' it's about getting back up and trying again, so I may join. I really need to remember that I'm not alone and there are so many people to talk to and no go at it alone! Just not sure what group I fit into. I don't to my Thai boxing anymore due to injury so Monk doesn't really fit, just more of a try a bit of everything type of girl, but more focused on

Didn't get a chance for a walk today so will head for the gym to
  9. Hi there!

  12. Hi Mmars, I feel the same as you.....loose weight, gain weight! This time around I have done some serious reading on paleo and plan to stick to its using the daily battle log and not cheat myself by not accounting for the bad foods....all will be logged to see how I can better myself for the next day. Have you also thought of taking a pic of yourself in the mirror? You can do it weekly, fortnightly, monthly etc? This way you can really see the changes and not rely on the scales. I have decided not to look at scales at all this time cause yes they tend to disappoint and then you end up eating s
