Okay, so I’m back to tracking my calories because I’ve kind of let myself go a bit – not watching my portion sizes, junking out more often than I used to. No wonder I put 5 lbs. back on! So, I also thought I would try a new strategy with my carbs. I believed it would be logical to move my carbs to earlier in the day and keep my evening meal to protein and veggies – no other carbs. No whole wheat pasta, brown rice, etc. I wanted to try this to see if it would also help get my weight back down.
I tried this – twice. What did I end up with?
The first attempt left me tired and pathetic during my weight training routine the next morning. This past Thursday morning, I managed my 4 mile run okay, but came close to passing out after I got home. So much for that idea! I know you need carbs to fuel workouts, but I didn’t think WHEN I ate them, as long as I wasn’t going to uber exert myself, would make that much of a difference! Wow! Was I wrong!
Moral to this story: Make sure to get some carbs with that evening meal! Apparently, I’m not one of those people who can go without them, even for a moderate workout!
