Day 4 of CANDO 2014: Rest and Stretch

I CAN rest and stretch.
I hurt my back, not bad - just enough to know I need to take it easy a bit.

Today's weight:
.2 lbs down from yesterday.

My homies and I will be weighing in each day until Monday the 13th and then every Monday after that.
(Next Tuesday I will be back with a crocheting post.)

Here are my homies results:
Look at them go!

The charts that track goals and weigh-in CAN be found on the CANDO 2014 page here.

Have a CANDO day!


  1. Happy New Year Astri and all the best with your healthy lifestyle changes. I know we've talked about this before, but I gave up meat years ago after reading Quantum Wellness ... well, actually, I was already headed that way but the book clinched the deal. And then, last April, after reading The China Study and the Blue Zones -- I realized that I really needed to give up dairy. Best thing I ever did! I did it for moral and health reasons, but honestly, the weight has just dropped off and it's so easy to maintain now! I've never felt better. Fruits and veges and nuts are mainly what I eat during the day. I don't count calories or worry about fat since I'm mainly only getting it from nut sources, avocados and a little olive oil. I would never make it if I couldn't eat after 6:30 p.m. Some experts believe it's not when you eat, but what you eat that counts. Just like how your son said a six-pack is made in the kitchen, not the gym. I've heard that, too, though once you lose the fat, you definitely need the gym to tighten everything up. Walking is great for weight loss and slimming the hips, but it doesn't tone up the stomach and backside as much as I would like. Someone posted on instagram the other day that the only way to lose weight is to stick to three square meals a day and only one snack. I don't believe that at all! I eat when I am hungry, and that is usually every 2-3 hours. Even if it is only a handful of nuts or an apple, I eat something. It's when you don't eat for a long period of time and don't have food readily available that you find yourself searching for anything and then eating way more than you should or worse, eating all the wrong things. Making healthy food choices is really easy once you set your mind to it. And once you do it for a while, you realize that you don't want to eat all the junk and processed food that is out there. Cheers to health and happiness! Tammy

  2. I hope you're doing a happy dance today - nice job! Be sure to rest your back and don't over do it.
