So after about 5 months of being on a beer and food binge – which may or may have to do with me being currently unemployed (it definitely does) – I’ve seen my weight jump to an all time high (hello 200lbs +). I still hit the gym so it’s not as bad as it seems, but drinking a few IPA’s 3-5 times a week has taken its’ toll. In an attempt to thwart this move towards rotundness, I am beginning the Slow Carb Diet. I’ve only read good things and I’ve done a miniature version of it in the past with positive results, plus the fact that it demands an ‘anything goes’ cheat day makes it easier to commit to.
I figure this is the best time to jump on this, given a little over a month before Thanksgiving and the holiday season, which is always full of excuses to celebrate (see:drink), which is when it’s hardest to eat and drink within balance. Hopefully this goes as planned and I’m back weighing where I want, leaning out is always the goal, but seems easier said than done. I’m already looking forward to cheat day.
