Things have gotten out of hand. I can not seem to get past four days of healthy eating before I just don't care. So I reached out for help. My fit sisters were there. As they always are. And just writing it down: I need to make a change. helps to.
They suggested new numbers. Because my old numbers weren't working if I can't stick to them. I kind of like my old numbers, but agreed because having something new to work on definitely re-focuses me.
So I am going to go back to carb cycling. Though not quite as much as before. Nice and Easy. I am just going to alternate every day. Low-Carb/High-Carb/Low-Carb/High-Carb. And I am going to keep my calories the same every day. Last time I was doing three sets of number (low, medium and high) and I was cycling my calories just a bit. And if something fatty comes up and I want to have a second low-carb day and switch days around, I am just fine with that.
So my numbers will look like this:
High-Carb Days 1900 calories: 140p/210c/55f
Low-Carb Days 1900 calories: 140p/182c/68f
What else is going on? I've been working out, but not hard-core. I have been battling a cold. Two colds actually. Work is crazy busy. I am setting up all of our School Visits to promote summer reading. And my library is closed next week to get new carpet. Which seems nice, but it is not nice to make sure you have everything you need for work all in the trunk of your car, plus everything that you leave on your desk not breakable.
Anywho. I am here. I am alive. I haven't done great for weeks. But I really do feel like I am back on track now.
