Low carb alteration
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
I have been extremely low in energy for a few weeks now and for the past 6 days or so I have been under the weather. I hate not having energy. I have not worked out in almost a week and I am not liking it at all. So I have decided to change my diet AGAIN. Low carbing is zapping my energy levels and I feel horrible so I have decided to stay under 100 carbs a day but not go too low so that I have enough energy to get up and work out for the hour and half I us to. My ultimate goal is to be healthy and skinny and I worry that with the low carb thing I may not be doing it the healthiest way. So this morning I had a bowl of special K with skim milk. I am at around 30 carbs and I have a little more energy. I will have a salad for lunch and try and we are having broiled catfish for dinner with two veggies.
I have been reading Low Carb Dieting for Dummies and it says stay under 100 carbs a day. Don't count carbs in veggies and fruits you can have as many as you want and you can have up to 5 under 15 g's of carbs a day carbs. That way you stay under your 100. So I am using Spark to track the calories in my veggies to make sure I stay under 100. Ultimately when I reach my goal I want to be able to keep it off. I worry with fad dieting that once I go back to having carbs after depriving myself I may gain it back. I have seen alot of that with extreme low carbing.
Today it is raining AGAIN and cold AGAIN. I really wish all of these weather ups and downs would stop. PICK A SEASON ALREADY. I watched the news this morning and it was 80 in Denver yesterday and today it is snowing. That is soo crazy. Thank goodness I don't live near there. However we did put up our pool this past weekend and it has not stopped raining since. One day I am wearing short sleeves and the next I am wearing a sweater. No wonder my sinuses hate me.
I have not run since I finished my 5K challenge and I am really missing it. I am determined to run. Maybe I will be able to get in a run tonight while my daughter is at Dance practice.
