OK, so I’m down 2.5lbs as of this morning. Sure, probably just water weight but still happy to see the ball rolling. Consistency is gonna be needed, big time. It’s usually around day 4 or 5 that I go bonkers, so I need to do the right thing and keep the healthy carbs (like a yam with dinner) coming in and keep that leptin level slightly up. I ain’t been 100% or even 95% clean, probably closer to 85-90%. But I had 2 great workouts so far this week.
In the meantime my co-worker’s eating an apple like it’s the anchor leg of some Young Life event. Ease it off there, buddy.
So dropping the immense amount of carbs from my diet which I had daily ingested last week has proved beneficial. Sometimes something is just too friggin’ good to pass up. So, low carb’in’ it works.
Drinkin’ a lotta water at night, too. I realized I pretty much stopped drinking water after 6pm, so I was getting that weird fake-empty feeling of “hunger” an hour after dinner. Keeps the skin clear, the pipes clear, and helps motivate an early rise from bed, lest I piss said bed. You can get away with that only like 3 times a year before trouble starts.
So there we go. Sigh. On my way. I’ll be even more motivated when it comes to that 10lb mark. When I see the results of consistent action (i.e. not eating like a dipshit on the weekends) I know I’ll be feeling even more motivated.
