Bye, Bye Carbs!
Post by Kimberly
That’s right – see ya carbohydrates! I know this is an extreme measure, but I need something extreme going on in my life! After a summer of dieting, binge eating, exercising sporadically and then more bingeing, I am in need of a quick jumpstart fix to the flat tire I am sporting around my waist. As Rachel discussed yesterday, this weekend I had more than my abundance of sweets and good food, but its left me feeling bloated and unhappy today….so I felt like I needed to cut out the sugar and white flour in my life.
So I decided to take things into my own hands and go sans carbs for awhile. I usually hate extreme diets and found myself most successful when I was merely eating healthy, planning my meals and staying active. Because my schedule is a little hectic (to say to the least) these past few weeks and the weeks to come, I figured I needed something more regimented. Running back and forth between my NYC apartment and my parent’s house in New Jersey has taken quite the toll and I am ready to embrace a strict diet for a few weeks to come.
In order to do this, I am starting slow and going to stick to proteins, lean meats, and eggs for a few days to detox and see how I feel. I also hope to reintroduce exercise by the end of the week. I even busted out my college soccer workouts I had tucked away in a drawer for a dark and desperate day.
Unfortunately that day has come and I actually looking forward to diving back into a strict weight lifting and running routine! I’ll keep you guys posted…for now I am grateful I got to enjoy this last week….
and this over the weekend….
I’ll keep you guys posted on my progress and hopefully get around to doing a fitness post to show you guys
what I once was able to do what I am doing as a workout!
Tell me – what are your jumpstart diets? Or go to workouts? Please share cause I need yo’ help!
