Crash and Burn – Falling off the Low Carb Bandwagon

Falling of the Low Carb Bandwagon Hurts …

I have no excuses. However, it is interesting to see how just five-days of crazy-iness can make me feel bloated, sick, unhappy, low energy and guilty. Back to the drawing board friends ……. I guess it is time to hike up my big girl panties and do the walk of shame. ;0)

It looks like I left off on the 14th at Eggs and Granola.

First I wanted to tell you that I signed up at Atkins.com and received a package from them. I love packages! It had a handy-dandy little carb counter booklet, 2 other useful booklets and three meal bars. Today I am a bit excited because I am going on a hunt for the new version of the Atkins book … mind you I have no patience to sit and wait for delivery from a website. I also mentioned before that there is a $3.00 rebate coupon on the Atkins website for the book. I love deals.

So onward …..

WL Stall, Plateau Busters & Induction Flu

I am glad I have been keeping a Food-Log .. it seems that I am doing something wrong as I have hit a stall and haven’t bunched a single ounce in one week. I am hoping with some minor adjustments I can get things rolling (or melting away) again. I read through some Plateau Busters to see just what it is that I am doing wrong ..

Hidden sugars & Invisible Carbs … maybe in my fat free creamer?  The label states no sugar (0g) and 1 carb (1g). Then when I read the ingredients I notice “corn syrup, with less then 2% sugar” – hmmmm. Problem?

Eating enough, 6 small meals a day … well this is a problem for me. Strangely enough I have never been a big eater. In fact I have never eaten much at all however, previously I would eat very little of very bad things. This a habit I have to break – as you can see by yesterday’s Food-Log I didn’t eat until 4:00 p.

– Food Allergies? … I don’t believe so and the first thought is rather entertaining. I would be very upset if I was allergic to food. I like food. But perhaps – I will pay closer attention to what is in what I’m eating. I probably should start organic/raw/no chemical based foods and see if that helps?

– We have a winner – Drinking too much coffee – I can drink it all day long along side water. I will make an extended effort to have two cups in the morning and one in the evening while doing homework. That will help.

I don’t take any medications, no sex hormones (ie. Birth Control), I do take a multi-vitamin each evening … hmmm … what’s going on? What I take from this list is I’m not eating enough which is throwing my body into starvation mode – I didn’t mean to. Bad habits are hard to break. I get so busy between working two jobs, three kids, full time college work and life I sometimes (most often) forget to eat until I’m fading away with hunger.

I am really considering Jimmy Moore’s Egg-fest & following suit of LCDJ. *taps keyboard* … it’s either Eggs or this >>> Stillman’s Quick Weight Loss Diet. I don’t know about you but I like meat however not enough to make it my only food source. But eggs … well I’m a freak – I can think of a million ways to eat them … so I think I’m up for Jimmy’s menu of choice: Egg Fest time.

I forgot to mention the past two days I felt like hell. Perhaps induction flu? I was headachey, my stomach was rolling around, I wanted to eat but I didn’t. Strange.

Off to work *Cheers*
