Week 7: New insights

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

It's safe to say that I won't make it back to my goal by my birthday in 3 weeks emoticon. I'm ok with that because I'm learning more myself and what I need to do emoticon.

For the next 4 weeks I'll be working with my personal trainer emoticon to get me back into the swing of things after my shoulder injury but most importantly he will be helping me on the nutrition front. He told me that I should stay away from carbs emoticonin the morning and start eating them after noon and have the majority of my carbs at dinner. Well I've tried but I need to actually plan this one out to make it work.

I also reluctantly got my body fat measured and it was up like I thought it would be. Still within the normal range but 5% more than what I want it to be. My actual goal is bodyfat and not really what the scale says. So I need to get back down that 5% and I don't care if the scale never moves. Oh and my calorie target should be 1525. I'm going to do my best to stick to that.

That's where I am. Still trying to tweak the eating habits. My goal this week is to learn more about this reverse carb thinking and see if it's doable for me. I'm willing to try it since what I'm doing isn't working and I know that carbs is the make or break for me so I need to figure out how to use them or not use them to get to where I want to be.

    Very interesting about the carbs! I always figured I need carbs and protein in the morning and fewer carbs at night. A mental thing that if I eat them in the morning I can burn them off by night. But the reality is I eat most of them in the evening...
