I really love the show Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition. It is so inspiring to see the people who are extremely overweight turn their lives around to make things healthier. I think Chris Powell is an excellent trainer and would love to have a job like that one day (after I get my health regimen in order).
I was searching on Amazon for nutrition books and found “The 7 Day Carb Cycle” by Chris Powell. I immediately downloaded and started reading it to give it a try. I only have about four more weeks until I am back at work, so I thought I would try it out and get into a healthy routine before then.
Yesterday was a Low Carb day and the process goes like this:
Monday: Low Carb
Tuesday: High Carb
Wednesday: Low Carb
Thursday: High Carb
Friday: Low Carb
Saturday: High Carb
A high carb day doesn’t mean you eat as many cookies as possible. It’s more healthy carbs alongside protein. Fruits are a really good idea for those days. On the low carb day, it is mainly protein and veggies the whole day. After our 4th of July, I was going through withdrawal on sugar yesterday.
Most people on the reviews said that they lost two pounds the first week. It received four out of five stars on Amazon, so I figure I’ll be a guinea pig and try it out. I’ll keep you posted!
It helps if you cut up your veggies and fruits and leave them accessible in the fridge.
Barney is moping around the house today because of all the rain. Any time we attempt to walk outside, he gets so excited. I can understand since I get a little ancy too when it comes to rainy days. I was a little disappointed yesterday on my attempt to road ride and this beauty of a storm paid a visit.
P.S. Lists are so awesome. Then you don’t have to try to remember everything. When I spoke in church on Sunday, I was talking about how I write lists all the time. A lot of girls came up to me afterwards talking about their lists and their husbands told me that their wives are obsessed with them. Ha ha. Must be a girl thing.
Question: Are you a list person? If so, what are some ideas on where to keep your lists?
I am a HUGE list-maker! I make lists for EVERYTHING! Grocery lists, project lists, packing lists, to do lists. In fact, I make a new To Do list every single day, sometimes multiple times a day. I even make them for my kids and my husband. LOL. The best feeling in the world is being productive and marking stuff off your lists!
