I cannot say that this week’s loss was due to any effort on my part. If I had a food diary I would have loved to share this on my blog. It would have been a real revelation on the amount of food I consumed over the week.
I love cycling as a means of commuting. When I get to the office I feel on top of the world triggered by endorphins. Thankfully the weather has allowed me to cycle for 4 days of the week. With my joggers and T shirt dress code this week, I think without cycling I would have felt far worse.
So what can I put this week’s loss down to? Being honest about this, I think this is because as we are approaching the end of 2012 my subconscious is telling me another year nearly over and you are older – just look at you? More importantly, it is also over a relationship that has really raised some uncomfortable questions in me. These are questions I rather not face up to.
One of the blog readers (thank you) recommended a book - Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It. I listened to an unabridged audio version of this book. The author argues that it is excess carbohydrates-not fats and not excess calories that has led to the obesity epidemic. His research looks sound.
I love my carbs. They keep me going through out the day. I just cannot see me cutting down on my carbs by a significant amount. Despite the sound research against carbs, I will see I how get on without a large reduction in my carb intake.
I have not been to the gym for some time. I will cancel my gym subscription and start using my wiifit. At the moment wiifit is only used for weigh-ins.
