Second Day

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Today is day two of eating between 15 and 20 carbs. Yesterday I think I went over by a couple, but I don't see that as a failure. I can't go from eating without monitoring my carbs to severely reducing them overnight without slight fault. At any rate, I went over by eating a couple low carb mini egg quiches - at least it wasn't fruit, sweets, or bread!

I don't feel bad at all (at least so far). I've been drinking water like it's my job, which helps me stay full. My stepdad is coming into town tonight, and I'm thinking I'm going to suggest that we stay in and I will cook. If not, I know it's a steak and salad for me!

It's really not difficult to eat low carb. The difficult thing is learning to say no to the other things that I love so much.

In other news, today was the last day of bar prep lectures for me. Now, I will just focus on tightening up the areas I still need practice in and doing multiple choice questions like crazy. I am so proud of myself - and can honestly tell you that I believe that I should be. Last summer, I was so consumed with stress that I couldn't appreciate what I was doing. I refuse to be like that this time.

Thanks for listening! Have a great day.

    I think you are doing fantastic. I've never really done Atkins though I think it's a great diet. Your choices are excellent.

Good luck with the studying!

    Sounds like you're off to a great start!

If you're going out to dinner try to check online for their menu first. The big chains list their nutritionals, and you can call the smaller locals and ask if they have any low carb choices.

    Welcome to sp and good luck on the bar and your low carb diet. I'm working to move carbs from an all day, every meal thing to just the last half of my day. We shall see how it goes.
