Slow-Carb Diet

I’ve struggled with my weight for a while. It seems like no matter what I do, I never lose very much. I did try the Medical Weight Loss system once and that did actually work but it was expensive with their “nutrients” or whatever so I eventually had to stop. I should have saved my card though, because it had some great information on it but whatever.

This time, I’m trying the Slow-Carb Diet from Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Body. I started it yesterday. Basically it’s a lot of beans, beef or chicken, veggies and no carbs or dairy AT ALL. I kind of effed up breakfast today when I put too much spinach in my eggs but I ended up mixing that with some beans and it was tolerable. I couldn’t finish the whole thing. One thing Tim mentions in his book is that you’ll feel like you’re force-feeding yourself the first few days. That’s EXACTLY how I felt this morning. I probably could have finished but I left maybe 1/4th of the food uneaten. We’ll see how I can get better at this. For lunch I made a bean and veggie salad. I added some breakfast sausage and seasoned it with cumin and pepper so we’ll see how it tastes. I made enough for my lunches Monday-Wednesday this week. 

I know this will be hard, harder even than I was expecting, but I’m determined to stick it out for at least a month. I do get one “cheat day” a week so hopefully that will make things easier. Updates will hopefully be frequent.




Excel at my new archivist job and hope they make me full time.

Not go insane baking at the deli.

Find a yoga class and go.

Start exercising on a regular basis (like every day).

A co-worker needed to open a bag of something and was looking for scissors. I was standing right by the register so I held a pair of scissors up for him.

Me: *waiting for him to take scissors*
Co-worker: *searching frantically for scissors*
Me: Um, I’m holding these up for you.
Co-worker: … Oh. I didn’t know.
Me: Did you think I was just holding these for fun?
Co-worker: I guess. I didn’t know. Thanks.


And again



Man, am I terrible at keeping up a decent blog in my every day life. I wanted to start a new one so I could be personal and professional but hopefully cut down on the immaturity/emo-ness of my previous blog creations.  I may at some point change the address to my name but I couldn’t resist my old handle for now. Let’s see how this one goes, shall we?
