Week Eight Low Carb Thursday Weigh-In:
03/23/2017: + 2.0 pounds
Total lost: 32.4 pounds
Current Weight: 197.6 pounds
So I'm back up to 197.6 pounds. This doesn't come as a surprise because for a few days things were totally out of hand with cheating.
On the plus side I did start at the gym but on the downside, I basically need to admit that I am addicted to simple carbs and sugars and I need to go back to low/healthy carb/possible keto.
You all know this, I know all this and I've known all this for the last year a half so why am I still messing around with macros? You want an honest answer? It's because it's really, really, really hard to give up all those yummy, "bad," simple carbs once I let them back in.
Is it the best thing for me, my health, my weight and everything else?
Is it going to be easy?
Is it going to be worth it?
And from all the reading I'm doing, it's fine to do low carb while strength training and doing other exercise as long as I get a lot of protein. Plus, if I plan ahead I can fit in a lot of healthy carbs in 50 - 100 and under net grams. I just need to plan very, very carefully.
I can't just get home after a workout, when I'm starving, and hope to find high protein, low carb, filling, healthy food just laying around. I need to make it ahead of time.
And I need to give up cheating for good.
It would probably help me to come up with some non-food rewards so I'll be working on that.
But enough talk already. It's time to make this happen.
