Weekly Weigh In

Allie: Hey guys, how was the week? Mine was a bummer. I was SICK. No voice at all. Dr. said a virus attacked my vocal chords, weird huh? I'm hyped up on steroids and getting better by the day. I'm up a pound and totally know FOOD. I ate whatever I wanted on vacation and since I've been home have felt too bad to cook & grill veggies and pack healthy lunches. As yall know I'm the NON working out fat chick; Les & Christina are kicking butt and taking names training for their marathons and Ryan is naturally very active. Well I'm NOT, so I have to really watch what I eat and can totally tell when I'm going to have a good week, because of it. For example I was very conscious the week before I left for my trip, I was down 3 lbs. Because I ate lean grilled chicken and veggies for dinner and leftovers for lunch and kept my carbs to a minimum. I know there are 2 schools when it comes to the low carb discussion. People that are working out hard, NEED carbs...but lazy ole me doesn't need nearly as many since I don't burn lots of extra calories. I DO eat plenty of complex carbs in veggies & beans but the weeks that I really am conscious about lowering the breads, pasta & potatoes I always see a difference in the scale. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
