Carb Cycling Here We Come!!!

So, my progress has stalled. Well, it's actually non existent which is so annoying, especially since I upped my cardio this week. I lost and gained the same pound over and over this week and my progress pics look the same as when I was 17 weeks out!!!

So, yesterday I emailed Julie about my frustration and today she emailed me back. She's carb cycling me which is just what my body needs. I'm super sensitive to carbs and I have to take them really low in order for my body to really respond. I also have to cut out the cheat meals for awhile. Thursday Derrick and I leave for a long weekend away so I emailed Julie back and asked if a cheat meal for dinner on Friday and Saturday would be ok. I really hope it will because, as much as I want progress, I also want to be able to enjoy vacation food a little.

So, last time I carb cycled, I did 2 high carb days and the rest low carb. This time, Julie's starting me with an every other day cycle where I take out my 2 complex carbs every other day. Since I have more high carb days there's really no carb up on my high carb days. As much as I hate how uncomfortable carb cycling can be, I'm looking forward to the results.

Ok, that's it for now. Hasta la pasta :-)

I'm Baaacccckkk!!!!

Hello All,

I've been away awhile because I had nothing to write. But now I'm back in prep for 3 shows in a row, Oct. 24th, Oct. 31st and Nov. 14th. This summer has been crazyness! I teach theatre and dance camps in the summer and trying to start prep while entertaining 20+ children for 7hours a day is a lesson in futility (sp?). Right now I have a 2 week break from camp so I'm finally starting to hit prep hard.

I can't promise that I'll update you guys every day but I'll be on here frequently. I'm waiting on fabric swatches so I can order my suit. I've decided to order from Tamee this time around and then stone it myself. I just love the way her suits fit people.

Ok, have great days. :-)
