The ups and downs of sugar detox is so unbelievably scary. I never knew how much this stuff affected my moods, my energy and my SLEEP! I am so high at night from energy, I am wired but then I sleep (eventually) and I wake up like I have crude oil for blood in my system. Sluggish, like a snail without a shell.

Irritability, highs and lows, intermittent 'fog-head' mixed with bursts of euphoria and creativity is what I am experiencing. I am so over sugar. It can sod off for ever. 

Day 7 of the training plan, doing good, getting to grips with the slant board and falling off the Fitball less now I am not looking round to see what my position is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-A5j0IawWA this is a link to one of my days on the foot/leg strengthening days.....

All is good. I am not at work over the holiday period but I am wondering how to fit it all in when I got back to working 13 hour shifts.......where there's a will....there's a way. 

1 hour walk with the dogs today, taking it easy on a no strength training day.

Thanks, Eric......I am really enjoying this.

I know the shift work Gary! No doubt, it will be VERY tough at times, but we'll worth it and you will inspire those around you.

Great form, esp on knee drive keeping stance leg locked.  On the lunge, work to get the non-lunge ball leg straighter as you lunge, with less weight on the ball.  So 90-95% of your weight is on the front lunging leg.

Thanks for the GREAT posts, keep it going so WE can keep YOU going when you head back to work.
