Just giving you all advance notice, so you can decide if you want to join in.

As before, Bootcamp will last for 10 weeks - which will take us up to mid-November. Just in time to get us all ready for all those Christmas parties grin

And as before, we will have a Spreadsheet of Wonderfulness, masterminded by the lovely WillieWaggleDagger, where you can (if you want) record your progress, week by week.

So add your name to the list if you're going to join:

You're on the spreadsheet, BSJ!

BergholtStuttleyJohnson Sat 14-Sep-13 14:22:25

I'm on my phone and can't copy and paste (or don't know how to). Could someone add me in? I don't really want to lose much weight (about 3kgs) but do want to change my eating habits and kick the sugar/carb addiction.

BIWI Mon 09-Sep-13 22:53:55

Of course you can, Looping! Welcome back, and congrats on the new baby.

Just add your name to the spreadsheet.

LoopingLizards Mon 09-Sep-13 21:41:13

Can I join please? I was here before and did really well, lost most of baby weight but abandoned ship when I became pregnant again. So now I'm ready to have a go at losing the baby weight all over again!

BIWI Mon 09-Sep-13 13:17:10

pindorasbox, you are very welcome! I have added your name to the spreadsheet, and hopefully Willie will make sure it's in the right place later on

Yes you are right they are too processed, and contain soy which I usually avoid like the plague. But I know that I will do better with this if I have the means to make them in the house in case I run out of other stuff or can't face breakfast. And thankfully this one is pretty low carb (and lovely mixed with cream).

BIWI Mon 09-Sep-13 09:27:02

You don't have to add your name to the list, Beryl, you could just go straight to the spreadsheet!

PrimalLass I have a couple of issues with protein shakes - first, you can end up consuming a fair number of carbs that way, whereas really you should be trying to get the majority of your carbs from veg and salad. And I'm not convinced about the ingredients - they are a bit too processed/artificial for my liking.

BerylStreep Sun 08-Sep-13 22:18:15

Please can you add me?

Didn't cut and paste myself to the list before.

As an aside, is there a better way we can do this rather than cutting & pasting massive lists?

Can someone add me please?

Another iPad wanker here.....

Could I possibly be added? My phone is refusing to play ball and won't let me copy the list to add myself on.

I've read the rules but have no batteries in the scales to weigh in in the morning I'm afraid!

PollyPollyP Sun 08-Sep-13 18:06:27

Yes!!!!smile

PollyPollyP Sun 08-Sep-13 18:05:37

O M G I think I have just done it....have I? Have I ???

PrimalLass Sun 08-Sep-13 17:24:49

I know, but the problem is that I go past being able to face it and cruise the cupboards for something I can grab. What's the problem with protein shakes? I've been doing this on and off for years and they have always worked well for me.

BIWI Sun 08-Sep-13 17:15:19

But if you work from home (as do I) then it's much easier! You can buy and cook/eat whatever you want - no need to worry about how to negotiate your way round (yet another) platter of sandwiches!

Do you like yoghurt? I often have full fat Total Greek yoghurt, with some vanilla powder or extract in it.

There's also no need to eat immediately, if time first thing is a problem. But make sure that you do have something mid-morning - this will ensure that your blood sugar level is kept stable, and it will stop you being ravenously hungry, and then grabbing at the nearest biscuit.

PrimalLass Sun 08-Sep-13 17:14:19

I'll probably add a raw egg before I blend it.

PrimalLass Sun 08-Sep-13 17:12:23

Time, and that I just can't face something savory. I can do eggs etc a bit later but lack the impetus to actually feed myself. Half my problem is that I cba to eat properly during the day (I work from home) and end up grabbing rubbish.

BIWI Sun 08-Sep-13 16:17:12

Why do you struggle with breakfast? Is it the type of food or just the fact of eating?

PrimalLass Sun 08-Sep-13 15:00:27

Yes it's 1.5g. I really struggle with breakfasts and end up starving and eating biscuits so these really help.

PollyPollyP Sun 08-Sep-13 14:49:11

Im going to be attempting this to but have just spent half and hour trying to put myself on the bottom and now give up in tears. See you all tomorrow.

BIWI Sun 08-Sep-13 13:20:17

Have you checked the carb count of the protein shake?

Tomorrow I will start the official Week 1 thread, and will put a link to the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness in it. Hopefully Willie has managed to get everyone's names on to it grin

So yes, just click on the link and add your weight.

I will also link to the recipe thread, and will start a fresh Questions thread.
