Start weight 175
Week 8 weight 176
Tried carb cycling , gained! Definitely going to stick with lower carbs from now on. Simply put I will get my carbs from fruit and veggies only. No more oatmeal, rice cakes or bread. I found my old journal from Aug 2010 when I first had my surgery, in that journal I kept saying how I was drinking/eating mostly protein and keeping my carbs low like the DR ordered- hmmmm and it worked. So guess that is exactly what I’m going to do.
I was a tiny bit flustered last week and wanted to quit everything because it was becoming so time consuming(tracking everything) but I also learned how easily it was to eat bad stuff cuz it wasn’t tracked – bag of jujubes!
So I’m back to tracking diligently this week, doing my exercises and guess what —- IM BACK RUNNING!
My body was always leaner when I was running 5-6x a week and I think it’s time to give my old foot another shot! I hit the trails this weekend and forgot my love of trails existed. I’m so back
Today I started back on the mill for a 5k and I think I’m going to do a 5k a day just to stay consistent and check my pace/times
Today was not fast nor my best pace but I give 0 shits about that. I’m just happy to be back running.
So here’s my week 1 and week 8 pics – still fluffy as hell!
Notice the dark hair – well it’s going back to blonde this week!
I’ll see what happens this week as I do my low carb , NOT high fat plan and let’s hope with that and the increased cardio I see less fluff next week.
