The low carb way of life:
The weekend went great. I sticked to the program with 1 exception: 2 glasses of wine on Saturday evening and 1 glass on Sunday evening. I love my wine too much to give it up. But besides the wine it went great!
On Sunday I cooked in advanced. I made a quiche of eggs with leek, bacon and onion and put pieces in the freezer for later.
I also made other crackers with wheat twaddle, rye flower, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. I had 2 for breakfast on Monday and they were very fulfilling.
Start weight on October 15th: 81 kg (178.5 lbs).
Weight on October 29nd: 79.2 kg (174.6 lbs).
Total loss: 1.8 kg (3.9 lbs).
Recap: My second week was as good as my first week. I have more energy, less IBS problems (if I have them it’s after the carb meal which is dinner), I don’t feel bloated anymore. The only thing is that working out is still a bit hard. I know I don’t need more carbs with my exercise routine (I’m not training for a marathon or even half marathon) and I guess my body is still adjusting. It will be allright, I’m positive. Not such a big weight loss as last week but that’s normal, program says a loss of 0.5 kg (1.1 lbs) is normal and I’m right on track with that.
- Today it’s 17 years ago that R. and I moved in together. We aren’t married because we don’t really care about that. Usually we go out for dinner on our anniversary but this time we booked a hotel for 1 night. The hotel is situated near a forest and allows dogs so Bella is coming with us. Tonight we will go out for dinner and tomorrow after breakfast we will do a forest walk before driving home again
