Random dream alert! Last night I dreamt you were my neighbour, and asked me to come with you to a castle that you insisted was made of bacon. I argued against this but you were quite insistent, so I went along with you, and as we reached the castle and saw it was made of stone you were inconsolable, until I fetched you one of those bacon bouquet things. I've been veggie for most of this year but now woken up desperate for bacon, so I'm pointing the blame squarely at you! x

amymichellefitness I just could not not publish this, this is the BEST thing I have heard in a long time!! Hahahahahaha

Just thought I’d mention that I passed my driving test on Wednesday! I’mma be back on here but just be aware I’m not going to be answering questions just yet! 

I hope all is well for everyone else.

Since I’ve gone back to eating high carb I’ve been feeling so bloated and lethargic.

I’m thinking about reducing my carbs and upping my fat intake again. I’m not sure what counts as low carb but I was thinking my range would be around 100-120g carbs which seems like moderate carbs to me. I need to do more research first and then see how I feel if I want to reduce that number. Since I’m probably at 200g+ carbs right now i want to take it slow.

Can any of my low carbers recommend some articles to read? I can’t really afford any books right now. Tagging a few people who I believe are low carb if they can help me out.

Hey G, pretty sure I screamed when I saw this post the other day. Yeah, I would concur with that being moderate carb. I personally went entirely cold turkey and cut my carbs down to 10% of my macros and then to 5%. I totally understand if people can’t go for that. Obviously with you having more carbs it won’t be as pressing as it would be to go so low.

I mean if I was to give you some advice, I’d maybe look at where your dense carbohydrate was, keep in the things you know you can’t live without and slowly phase it out. Maybe aim for a goal (I don’t know how you’re doing so far) and remove the dense dense carbs, opt for lower carb fruits such as berries rather than bananas, that kind of thing.

I only know of ketogenic resources, but paleo articles should help. Just take it at your own pace honey!!

I have decided to come off here for a few days.

I’ll keep a record of my workouts so I can talk about them when I’m back.

And if you do follow me, don’t particularly like me/are jealous of me. Do us all a favour and click unfollow.

Apologies to you guys who need inspo - keep reading my most recent posts and I hope they can help.

hey hey does running in leggings get really sweaty/uncomfortable? i cant decide if it would be worse to wear shorts that are kinda too small or leggings because im getting chubby but i really want to start running again! Ah ily btw

Skins are honestly a godsend, check them out - although a little expensive. I find the thinner the material the better :-)

Christ on a bike, people are pathetic on here
