I live in the country, since I ride at dawn, it gives me a chance to see some local wildlife. Which is always good!
    I also walk my heeler dog 2 miles each day because she is so hyper there would be no living with her if I didn't And I lift free weights, planking, ketttlebell stuff etc. I like it. For my age, I am in good shape!
    What a great-sounding routine!

    I am building a house with lots of heavy lifting, standing and walking all day. I need to fill in with some sprints once in awhile though. I am so tired after building 8 to 10 hours a day that I just cannot do anything else. I used to lift weights quite a lot and will get back into that this winter after I move them out to the new house.
    I think lifting helps keep all those little support muscles strong so we don't get hurt when using the big muscles.

    ladies, after no real weight loss success and slogging away at the same old routine for a couple of months Ive been reading about the leptin reset and am on day two. breakfast was never one of my favourite meals and a heavy one early in the morning has taken some doing, but if I am leptin resistant, and the symptoms I read on one of Mark's posts sound very much like me I will give it a go.
    Can someone explain to me why nightshade fruits arnt in favour.I have a greenhouse full of ripening tomatoes and aubergines and peppers !! So, I am really disppointed to read that I shouldnt be eating them. Maybe its just if you have an allergy to that group.Ive never noticed anything myself.

    Has anyone tried some of the recipes in Mark's Quick & Easy Meals? Everyone I have tried has been great. I made the Halibut in butter sauce the other day, and it was delicious! I also made the Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice, great dish and re-heats nicely. Also the BLTA Chicken Breast Sandwich, gotta love it!
    Dang, making myself hungry, LOL

    iateallthepies, I am going to read up on the leptin reset. I have heard of it, but don't know to much about it. My weight has been holding steady after an initial 5lb loss, but not losing anymore for about a month now.

    I have been losing steady weight since I started eating this way. I don't do the organic thing because I can't afford it. But all the food I eat is fresh and not processed. I don't eat grains though I cheat sometimes with potatoes. I think I have had rice 2x in the last year or so. The only cheat times are when I go out with friends or have dinner with friends which is rare because I am not a social person. I lose between 5 and 6 pounds a month. I do IF (The IF thing is a calories in/ calories out thing imho) a bit but not every day and I don't eat breakfast very often because I don't wake up hungry. I eat 2 meals a day and I am not starving. Both meals consist of a meat or fish and lots of fresh vegetables. Lots of time lunch is just a big ass vegetable omelette. Dinner is usually grilled meat and a big ass salad with lots of different veggies and homemade dressing with fresh lemon.
    I eat all the vegetables except potatoes all the time. Why would a tomatoe be bad for me? I could see fried green tomatoes being bad but a sweet ripe red tomatoe not boiled in oil? Why would eggplant or peppers be bad?
