I was very disheartened this morning. After a week of conscientiously avoiding carbs I find I have gained a 1-2lbs in weight. Now I know this is nothing major and could simply be water, clothing etc but it’s just annoying. I thought the whole point of not eating the carbs was so that your body uses the excess fat storage to burn for energy – I have tons of fat! Why is my body not burning it? I should have bucket loads of energy!
I know – it doesn’t quite work like that! But this morning I questioned what the point was. After speaking to my sister, with her words of encouragement and realism my annoyance hasn’t lasted long. She advised me to give it 3 weeks or so before I see results, which was the original plan. I’m just being impatient! I think I said Day 90 I should look to do the fitness test again and proper weigh in and really see what’s what. So, not long now – watch this space….
5:30am – 3K run AFAP. I did it in 13. something seconds. Followed by 14 x 200m runs. I’m quite pleased at my run time as at that pace I should be able to do 5K in under 30mins which is my target for December.
7am – 1 plantain, green tea and an orange
10am – 1 banana
1pm – chicken breast with my chickpea stew
