I thought you weren't supposed to have to think about your body until after you hit 30. I'm still a couple of years away, but none of my clothes seem to be fitting me anymore. I eat really well and I'm active. I'm not so much of a gym go-er, but I am always up and around during the day. I used to wear a pedometer to work, and on a normal day I take around 7,000 steps.
I'm going to go for the next two weeks without eating any carbs. I just realized how addicted to them I really am after a big (carb-free) meal the other night when I still felt hungry.
Why two weeks? Well, on the Atkins website, they provide two weeks' worth of recipes. Plus, that will get us to holiday time. If reducing my carbs makes me feel as good as everyone says it will, I'll have no problem continuing through the season. I don't get tempted so easily.
We're going to the grocery store later today. Just finishing up my shopping list. I just have to be really careful to balance my ecotarian-ism with the meat-happy Atkins' plan. Off we go!
