I have surprised myself and been able to avoid flour and sugar all week. In other words, I needed a break from carbs as I was overdosing on them… and it’s working. My appetite is way down and I feel great, actually. The intensity of my weekday, hour-long workouts calls for upping the protein intake, but I wasn’t really doing it. Now I get why the regular doses of protein throughout the day really do compliment extreme workouts. I have more energy not just in class but hours later. I still need to get more sleep but I have not had any headaches or bloating that usually come after a late night binge on cereal or whatever other carb is close at hand. It helps that Dave has been grilling steaks almost every night and lettuce and cheese are virtually carb-free. A nice salad with buttermilk dressing and shredded sharp cheddar goes great with a medium rare cut of meat! Wow, I am really into this. But it’s day 4. Ask me about it next week.
