Um. Right. I don’t know.
So, about points for pounds…..I need to come clean. I haven’t been tracking points for almost two weeks. Last week I talked about lowering my carbs, and I had a loss. This week I thought I was still lowering carbs and I gained back that loss. I don’t know why, nor do I really care. It’s not worth it to me to analyze it, and then not change my behavior. I gained, life goes on.
But…I say all that to say, that life is going on in a new direction. Wednesday during KB class our instructor challenged us all to a two week “clean eating challenge.” Starting yesterday, and ending the Wednesday before thanksgiving. Well..I love a challenge..and even though I really really love carbs and desserts…I figure it couldn’t hurt. And in reality, if is does hurt, or if I felt mal-nourished…I’m all about eating what I need to take care of my body. Note to self.. no one NEEDS donuts.
So..what are these two weeks going to look like?
Proteins-Chicken, Beef, Fish, Pork, Eggs, Egg Whites, Protein Powder
Fruits-Berries only (O.M.G. all I want is an apple. GIVE ME FRUCTOSE).
Carbs-Sweet Potatoes, Yams, Brown Rice, Wild Rice.
Cooking with: Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Organic Butter
Only WATER has a beverage (gah….me.want.coffee…)
This plan comes from a longer 4 week plan, in weeks 3 and 4 you add back in fruits and certain carbs.
My KB instructor told us about this plan months ago and I blew it off….I think my quote to her was “Give Me Carbs or Give Me Death!” But, what can it hurt really? Worse thing that happens is I lose weight and then gain some back. I am thinking (after thanksgiving) that I will follow this plan…but maybe a little more “primally.”
I am going to blog more frequently about this, then I did with WW, how I’m feeling…cravings…being on a “diet” for the first time in my life.
