So the most shocking thing today was stepping on the scale this morning and seeing my weight increase yet again!  I’ve been hitting two, very tough cardio sessions every day, all month long.  I am now considering a new change or two but I’ll finish my normal schedule tonight and think on it some more, in terms of what I want to change.

Okay.. funny story. It was my first high carb cycling day and I made a bad mistake. I was thinking in terms of getting more calories and carbs for the day and didn’t think about the fact that my protein intake would be much less. At only 2pm, I started writing down what I had eaten and realized that I only needed about 6 grams of protein for the remainder of the day but 1100 calories (mostly carbs) still! That was poor planning any way you look at it. You’ll notice my food log has pretty much pure carbs for the last half of the day. That’s not how I would have preferred to do things on my high calorie/carb day. Lesson learned though. I’ll do better on the next 4th day and spread that protein around a little better to make my evening meals more enjoyable.

I have a good feeling about carb cycling but I may have to play with it a bit longer to get the numbers where I want them.  I sure did expect to be gaining weight this month, but I’ve been working so hard that it deoesn’t bother me much, as I feel like it just has to be good weight.

On a positive note, today is the first day this month that I felt like I could see an improvement in the mirror so maybe I am improving.  It doesn’t seem possible that I could look leaner with the amount of calories I’ve had as of late.    I’ll wait until month’s end to get a better idea and if I need to, I’ll work even harder next month.

Will discover the secret of being lean!
