Even with an accidental blogging hiatus, the low carb diet continues.
And it’s going pretty good!
My sweet tooth is already disintegrating, and turning into a carb tooth.
Bread. Biscuits. Pizza. Cheeseburgers. Pasta.
Yep, one step closer to carb freedom. A few more days and I should stop these nasty cravings!
I’m not going too low carb or anything. I’ve been trying to just stay below 100g. I finished Friday with 84g, Saturday was 112g (darn Vanilla Iced Coffee from Starbucks – my weakness!), Sunday was 112g (too much fruit), and today finished at 92g. I have lost 5.6 lbs since August 1st, most of that was water weight/bloating from my super-carb day on 7/31.
I started Saturday with a 4 mile run. The first mile I had a companion:
…and the last 3 miles were solo. I love my new neighborhood, so many hills!
Sunday I ran 2 miles, one w/ Calvin and 1 sweaty, fast mile alone. It felt good!
Tonight was a group fitness class, Arms & Core Crusher, and tomorrow is a 3 mile run, 2 mile walk with a friend, and possibly a fitness class. I’m just piling things on! The more exercise the better!
A friend on Facebook posted a photo of some dark chocolate nut clusters she made today, so I’ll definitely be posting a (super easy) recipe/photos later this week! Think dark chocolate, coconut oil, cashews, peanuts, almonds, and unsweetened shredded coconut? Yum!
…and tomorrow night is a new pork rib recipe. I’ll definitely post that tomorrow night.
Half marathon training official begins on Saturday, things are going to get pretty routine around here!
