I think that part of the problem has been my eating. I haven't been gorging myself or going out to eat every night, but I stopped counting calories and tend to eat more leftovers for lunch instead of packing something different. All that is about to change, however. Jason and I are embarking on a new eating program, the Paleo Diet. Here is the book that we just finished
As a kickoff to our new eating program, we had one last hurrah and went to Olive Garden for dinner Monday night. I had the Shrimp and Chicken Carbonara and it was amazing. However, I had a bagel for breakfast yesterday morning, leftover carbonara for lunch and then we made pizza for dinner. Carb overload. I had one piece of pizza last night after I did my Jillian 30DS and it sat like a stone in my stomach. Going without carbs may be easier than it sounds. We are going grocery shopping tonight and I can't help thinking about something I heard before. "Stay on the outside lanes of the grocery store. That is where you will find all the fresh produce and meat. All the middle aisles are filled with unhealthy processed foods".
Carb loading does not do a body good. 165 pounds is where I am as of this morning. I think that's right, anyway. My scale is a lying whore and gave me three different numbers within the space of a minute. Also, you will get no picture of that number because I am scale photo challenged and cannot get a good picture for anything. I don't know how other ladies get such great pics of their scales. I think it is because my bathroom is too dark and my shadow is over the display and my toes look like giant thumbs. It's weird.
Good luck to my fellow FitCampers, but my team totally has this in the bag!
