Hoping for more change

Monday, April 16, 2012

So this week I gained, not sure how that happened:( I exercised last week and pushed myself harder on the bike and treadmill, plus I did sme strength training and pilates.

This week I am starting the carb cycling diet by Chris Powell. The foods that I can eat are the same foods that I eat now. The difference will be that I will eat less calories every other day than I do now, and the other days the max calories will be the low end of my daily calorie range. This will help me to find out if I am eating too many calories. Right now I eat between 1500 - 1800 which are the calories in sparkpeople. I am going to go from 1200 calories one day and 1500 calories the next.

I want to start feeling like I am on the right path and I have figured something out. I want to feel like I am worth being thin. I want to make it. I feel like I make good choices, but I don't see the results I am looking for. Yesterday I wanted Pizza or Chinese Food like crazy, but I didn't eat them. I ate healthy and even at lunch, we grilled. I had my lunch, there was more food left over and it tasted so good. I wanted more, but I didn't take it. I stopped and moved on.

I am struggling with trying to be on this venture without having significant results that make me feel like I am being successful. I want to see the results that I am putting myself first and I am worth being healthy and fit.

Last night, Tony (my husband) put a bike on layaway for me. Now our whole family will each have a bike and we can go riding, outside on trails. I am excited for that because I like being outside.

I am hoping this will be a good start and will make a difference.

    on the plan you eat protein and fat along with veggies in the same day. Fat such as avacado, oils, or nuts. On the carb days you do not eat fats. This is a very important step. You eat, carbs, protein, and veggies.

    It says most people see results right away, other it takes a couple of weeks. So, I am hoping to see a change rigth away!!

    I know that other Sunnies have tried the calorie cycling and it worked for them. I think this would be a good thing to try. You can do it.

    Well, that answers part of my question. Where does the carb cycling come in? Do you keep the protein and fat the same, but fluctuate on the carbs? How soon does one usually see results?

    Hmmmm...I wonder if this type of plan would work with my thyroid. It might be worth a try! Let me know how it works for you!
