    I don't think the Slow Carb diet is for me. It's the cheat days. I feel like utter crap the second I gorge out on my first goodie, and from there the day is pretty much blown. Plus, I'm yo-yoing pretty severely on the cheat day. I'll lose 3-4 pounds during the week (much of this is likely water), and then regain 3 of it back after the cheat day. So the first 4 or 5 days each week is devoted to relosing that 3-4 pounds, and I'm only really breaking new ground 1 or 2 days a week.

    Overall, I'm down about 2 or 3 pounds in 2 weeks. Not bad, but not worth feeling like crap 1 day a week.

    I've been working out 4 times a week. Both Saturdays were blown because they were cheat days, and I just didn't have the energy to do an intense cardio workout after breakfast.

    Time to go back to my old diet, or figure out something new.

    Hmm, interdasting...

    I don't ACTUALLY get myself sick, I sort of assumed the writer was just exercising some poetic license. But what I found interesting was your earlier post about how different body types react to carbs differently and perhaps this is one of those situations. Having that drastic a swing and gaining it all back on that one day is pretty crazy. I suppose you could always skip the cheat day, but I've found for me at least it's psychologically impossible, haha.

    I will add, that I don't eat the beans on this at all. I don't lose much at all when I do. But yeah, even from the comments in the article I don't think it works for everybody for some reason. That's sort of the fun of these for me. Find what works. Scrap what doesn't. Body hack away.

    Oh yeah, there's no way I would continue this diet without the cheat day! Hah.

    I may very well overdo it on the cheat day, which might be part of the problem. Although for breakfast, I'll just have my usual omelet with veggies and cheese and just add a couple of pancakes and 2 small cookies, and that's enough to throw my energy off. I think after being good all week my body doesn't know what to do with all the sugar.

    Interesting thing about the beans. I'm eating about 3-4 cans a week, spread out, which is the first time I've ever eaten so many. There might be something to that. *ponders*

    I actually still have my meal plan from when I did the Atkin's diet induction phase, so that might be my next step. I remember that not eating any junk for 2 weeks was initially tough, but before too long I quit craving it, and shortly after that those foods became so sweet they were almost sickening.

    Gonna think on it. Until then, I'm going to treat myself to Five Guys tonight, attend a party at a fancy buffet on Thursday, and remove my cheat day. Other than that, I think I'll continue the current diet for now. I've already purchased all the food, so might as well eat it!

    Okay, so I've been doing some reading, and I think I'm going to try P90x instead of Insanity. I need to build muscle, and Insanity is a whole lot of cardio. It sounds like a fair few women do P90x, build muscle and endurance, then do Insanity to get that last little layer of fat that covers the muscles. My sister's doing P90x, so I'll have a workout buddy. I kind of have this desire to see what kind of shape I could get in, with dedication. My whole life, I've always watched what I ate and exercised enough to stay thin--but I have never pushed myself to get in great shape.

    Meanwhile, I'm also still having a great time skating and doing yoga.

    Slacked during the week, but that's just fine.

    Saturday: Zumba

    I found my old pilates mat for latin dance boot camp tomorrow morning. I have to bust out 40 pushups before the night is over. We have '10 pushup per day homework' for said class. Happy times!

    Sunday: Latin Dance Boot Camp

    I did my pushups last night- somewhat shoddily, but arm strength is a process . LDBC was good. We used the resistance bands a bit, but I'm still hesitant with them for the moment. My booty and thighs are absolutely killing me as of the past two days, but in a good way.

    Good luck! Just remember to take it really easy that first week, or you will be super, super sore. What's the hybrid of the P90x? Are you just going to do specific routines from P90x?

    Diet and exercise are in a momentary stasis for me, so nothing to report on my end.

    Update, I actually am exercising a couple of times a week.. the exercise is boring and posting about it feels boring, but I probably should anyway.

    I'm going to incorporate the upper body stuff from p90X and then the lower body stuff from the Brazil Butt Lift. Been doing BBL since yesterday, and am super sore! I think it's gonna do good things, though! It's a really fun, if tough, workout. Will probably wait to start the p90x stuff until I have a solid hold on the BBL stuff.
