This is ridiculous!
Yesterday I did not exercise because I was on my feet baking all day. By the time I was done and made dinner, my feet and legs were killing me and I was beat.
However, everything I baked was low carb, and I didn't even eat much of it!
I had 2 pieces of bacon and a Baby Bel original for breakfast.
Of the stuff I was making, I had one sugar-free Cadbury knock off (6 carbs) and 1/4 of a piece of the coconut cream pie (a 1x1 square, because I made 12 individuals in a brownie pan). We had a spinach/tomato/onion/feta frittata for dinner. I had 1/4 of the 5 egg frittata. We ate early, and later when I was hungry again I ate a piece of string cheese and a beef stick.
Today I'll freeze some of what I made yesterday. The plan was also to make the 44 clove garlic soup, salad with a complementing homemade garlic dressing and sugar-free, gluten free carrot cake for today. However, we've decided that we are going to pack up the bikes and go for a nice, challenging ride first. We are going to do the Mauthe Lake/Long Lake loop. Depending on how I feel when we get back, we'll see how much of the cooking actually gets done. I haves some cleaning and some research that must be done too. So I have to figure out how to fit all that in.
Anyway, if we complete the whole bike trip, that will be 42 miles I've covered this week...without losing any weight. The average calorie intakes has been about 1200-1500 (with a range of perhaps 900-1700).
Yeah, because it's impossible to NOT lose weight if you just eat fewer calories and move a little. I call bullshit.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
