My month in Atlanta was brutal, especially on my physique. The 3 hour time change made it almost impossible for me to work out. I know this sounds like a lame excuse, but getting up at 7am pst is about all I can do… If I wake up any earlier than that, I feel sick to my stomach and have on many occasions, thrown up.
I also felt bloated and uncomfortable the entire time .. I don’t know if it was the weather or what I was eating, which for the most part was the same – oatmeal in the morning, salad for lunch, low carb dinner), but I just didn’t feel good.
Anyway, the long and short of it is that I didn’t work out and I drank too much… which has resulted in a 3 lb gain. Of course I’m not happy out it, I had 5 lbs to lose before I left for Atlanta a month ago. So, I’m going to try the GM Diet. A few friends of mine have done the diet one week a year for years (they do it once a year for cleansing purposes)… and have consistently lost weight and have kept it off. So I’m going to give it a try. I’ll blog my progress …
I’m actually looking forward to it because I do love fruits and veggies.. and I can substitute chicken for the beef days if I want to.. I went shopping today and purchased a bunch of fruits and vegetables… the bill came to $68… which is very low for me. Normally its close to $100, and that’s because it usually includes alcohol…. And honestly, after all the drinking I did in Atlanta, I’m looking forward to an excuse to NOT drink. I know, shocker.
Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how day 1 goes tomorrow.
