Cheating

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, I’ve been cheating on my low carb diet the past few days. Not too terribly, but I’ve had a few servings of fruit and some pasta.

Yesterday, an apple on the counter was calling to me, so I went for it. C was happy to help consume the evidence and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then, I helped C with part most all of her single serving mac and cheese. Today, I gave in when a free smoothie was up for grabs – rationalizing that it was mainly for C, but happily downing it when she didn’t. It was green and had collard greens in it, but the base was definitely fruity.

Given my weight loss plateau over the past 7 weeks, I’ve been toying with changing it up again and going towards more of a south beach diet approach, adding fruits and whole grains back in. At this point, I’m just really frustrated with the lack of results and wanting to do something that will help get things going again. I’ve seen the same 7 lbs come and go every week, currently holding around a 3 lb total loss. It’s incredibly discouraging to see Ben losing weight from this approach while I stagnate.

I didn’t go to zumba, so I’m sitting on the exercise bike tonight to burn a few calories. It’s a rather passive activity, which makes it easy. I watch tv or blog (or both) and the time just flies by. The hardest part is showering after!

We spent the day at Art Beast where C had a great time banging on drums, painting some art work, scooping shells, playing with sand and running amuck. It was so much fun! We followed that adventure with a visit to a vegan cafe down the street. We were hoping to get some tea from the tea house that used to be next door, but we were disappointed to see that it was closed down. I guess tea shops just don’t survive a recession well.

Alright, shower time. Good night internet!
