APRIL FOOLS!! HAHAHAHA! sorry dident get to trick anyone today :-) knew you would fall for it. I dident lose any weight today... well that I know of... I dident even weigh in.
Update: week 4
well I started south beach and it wasent so bad.... you do the first two weeks eating very limited carbs, no bread, pasta, rice, sugar ect...... You can have a few things you cant have on adkins though - like low fat yogurt and milk and beans. That was nice.
Well after a few days me and my husband arent doing so hot... they say if your still hungry to eat more but the main staple of any low carb diet is meat and I cant afford to be cooking up enough to really make us full each meal... I mean I use meat very sparingly most of the time, Im talking like 1/2 a pound for 4 people and only cooking meals with meat in them part of the week. I have used up enough meat in the last few days to last me 2 weeks before.
To make matters worse we both have zero energy and Im constipated. ... lol, yeah too much info I know... sorry.
But anyhow, I did some thinking today and losing weight a little faster is not worth it to me to feel like crap. I want to find something that works with my body better but this is not it.
I just need to play around with my eating a little and find something eles that works for me. Maybe cutting out processed snack foods... or the eating out once or twice a week... I know thats most likely not helping me in the least. I do agree that I prob eat too many carbs so maybe I will try to reduce my starch intake and bump up the protien and veggies a bit more. find a balance.
I got the new biggest loser 6 weeks to a healthier you book today and they have some pretty good meal plans in there that I might try.
But other than not being able to hang with the south beach diet, I did well on it, nothing off limits passed my lips for the few days i was on it... well except tonight. I had breaded tilapia, 1/4 of an apple and a cup of strawberries.
I dont plan on eating every bad thing in site... the good thing about trying out new ways of eating now is I know if I fail at them then Im not going to revert back to the way I was before.
I have not exercised every day this week, maybe 3 times because of general lack of energy. I tried Tae-Bo tonight (well part of it) and I had to turn it off... Its not that I couldent do it, its just the moves are so fast pace and all over the place i just couldent get it. I like nice simple to follow workouts... a squat here, a jumping jack there, run in place, punch punch punch..... You know what I mean.
But anyway, Im still hanging in there... I havent fallen off the wagon so to speak and Im not quiting. Im hoping for a good weigh in this week... but if I havent lost anything I will be ok. I feel pretty good at the moment and I know that this stand still in my weight loss will pass... this has happened before and I just need to push through it like last time.
Hope everyone eles is doing great this week - we gotta keep working hard, summer is just around the corner!
