For the past few weeks I've been MIA- missing in action. Life has been full of excuses and I've given in to every one of them. School has been harder. Work has been more stressful. Family has been more demanding. I gave up my healthy eating and settled for what was easy. We just returned from a mini-vacation last night and today I'm back in the game. Right now I don't feel like I can stay committed to carb cycling. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's a fantastic way of eating and it definitely gives results. But right now I need to do something I'm familiar with. I've had success following the South Beach diet in the past. The food choices are very similar, just in different combinations. So today I started back on that. Unfortunately,  I have to pay the price for time off the wagon. I weighed this morning and was back at 224.


Back on track today. I had the day off from work. I went grocery shopping and did some food prep. I also joined a gym. I did 30 minutes of cardio today - 15 on elliptical and 15 on bicycle. Just that 30 minutes was too hard. I know I have so far to go, but I have to start somewhere, right? I'm looking forward to trying some of the fitness classes.

My lesson learned from this is not every diet is right for everyone. I spent too much time on carb cycling trying to figure out what I could eat on which day and with what. I would last a couple of weeks and then mess up, regain and have to start all over. South Beach is more straight forward. I'm hoping I can stick with this. I have to stick with this. I can not gain anymore weight.
