Slow Carb Diet – Week 3. Backsliding.

Today, my vital statistics (weight, fat % and BMI) are awfully darn close to where they were after the first few days of the diet. Not a very heartening way to wind up an overall lousy-to-mediocre week. I suspect that a few stumbles along the way are contributing to this.

  1. I drank bubble apple cider last Wednesday night. It was a special occasion and it didn’t even occur to me that I was doing wrong ’til after the first glass was gone.
  2. I’ve been drinking coffee with half and half. As of today, I’m limiting myself to two tablespoons of cream for an entire day’s supply of coffee, regardless of how many cups that may be.
  3. I’ve caught myself snacking a few times. This means I’m not eating enough at my regular meals.

I’ve also started working out with a kettlebell three times a week. It will be interesting to see how this affects progress along the way.
