Hi All, just checking in, there’s so much to catch up on – you’ve all been busy!
Baxter, do be careful of the Achilles- if you can see a physio or podiatrist to get advice on stretching or exercises I strongly recommend it. If I hadn’t ignored mine for so long I’d be better off now. The feeling better in the middle of the day thing is apparently a false positive- I was told it’s not getting better, it’s just warmed up so the inflammation and micro tears don’t feel so bad 😔 But the damage still goes on getting worse. I don’t mean to nag, and I’m so pleased that this WOE is making them feel better, but I do encourage you to be careful as they are miserable things!
But yes the twin thing is a bit spooky lol I loved that you got the Barbarians thing!! We can urge each other on 😌
Wendy I am deeply saddened to learn that cacao nibs can end up on naughty and banned list, lol I had thought they might be my secret weapon but it sounds like I’ll have to watch myself with them. What is it about small and crunchy- why is that so hard to resist?!
Allie, planks are a great suggestion – thank you – and I will add them to my little routine. I’m already down inspecting the dust in the carpet as I struggle through leg lifts and the ridiculously named superman, so adding planks will make it even more worthwhile getting down there! Kafin, you in? Baxter?
Thank you too for the explanation re net carbs, total carbs etc. I think I’ve worked out the problem: Australian nutritional labels and MFP (my fitness pal) talk a different language, I think because MFP is a US company? I think this means the Australian panels show net carbs because they list fibre separately and it’s often higher than the carbs? So for example the panel for my serve of psyllium husks says less than a gram of carbs and 4.5g fibre, but MFP translates that to 4g of carbs and 4g of fibre. So when it adds up my daily totals it’s including that 4g which it really should have excluded. Is that right? Does the same apply with fresh food? Eg a serve of cabbage at 5g carb of which 2g is fibre gets added in to the day’s total as 3g carb?
LouiseK, I guess you’re right that they’ll probably be pretty close anyway but 20g is so low some days that every gram helps lol
My stars I really thought I had this cracked, that I could read a nutrition label, but I’ve just realised that over 8 weeks in and I’m still a bit confused!!
Old dogs and new tricks lol
Have a grand day, Elky
