Carb Cycling: End of High Carb Week

Monday, September 09, 2013

Today is the end of Week 4 of Carb Cycling. Week 4 was a high carb week.
It was strange eating carbs every day, all day. On the low carb days, I eat a high carb breakfast and all the rest of the day is low carb. I don't think that I ate enough high carb meals. Here is my chart for the past week.

Tomorrow starts week5 and I have 2 low carb days in a row. I am busily planning my meals for the week and also coming up with a meal prep chart that lists favorite meals and key ingredients (this in an attempt to make my life easier).

As far as life, hubby returns home tomorrow from visiting his father. I think it was tiring for him to be with him all day but it was also an eye-opener. It's tough to take care of the elderly. I know his sister appreciated his trip so she could get a little bit of a break. I know that I appreciate him more since I've been doing his chores around here. emoticon

    You both are great to be there for your parents. I am sure these memories will be with you for a long time.

    I think that caring for the elderly is a good experience for everyone. I'm sure you're right about it being an eye-opener.

    Good luck with your menu-planning. That can be such a very helpful thing to do; but, difficult to make time for it.

    I bet your husband also appreciates what you have been doing with your mom more since he spent time taking care of his dad.
