Time to eat my words (but with no salt or sugar added).
I went to the gym today, on this Day of Rest (Well, and Day of Stretching.), after four weeks on THE REGIME. I hopped on the elliptical, turned the level to SkyRocket and before I had even broken a sweat, my timer sounding the workout's end beeped. What? Hadn't I just started? I wasn't breathing heavy, was not winded in the slightest. OK. If I can take about five minutes off my average mile time and still have energy to spare, then THE REGIME is for real. I was sorely tempted to see how much longer I could last, but I had a feeling it was much longer than my day warranted.
...because it is grocery day! And a super exciting shopping trip at that since after week four, WE GET TO CHANGE FOOD!!! A new menu starting tomorrow! Hooray! Though I completely love all the new things from the first four weeks (turkey burgers, turkey bacon, soba noodles, jerk pork, welcome to our home as permanent staples!), I am very excited to have REAL CARBS again. Bread... I have missed you so! Brown rice could never take your place. I promise to never be irresponsible about your consumption ever again. Because while I am so happy to have you, I'm so much happier to not have the extra pounds that I suspect were largely due to my attraction to you.
