Living La Vida Low Carb

“woke up in new york citaaay”
FYI I wish I could take credit for the snazzy title of my post, but I totally stole it from THIS GUY where I found this interesting article.

I’ve switched to a low carb way of eating. John’s on this kick permanently and I’m joining the club.  It’s going to take a lot of getting used to but ultimately I think it’ll be worth it for my health.  I’m not sure which low carb plan I will go with.  I have to research them all and see what feels right to me.  John is a fan of Atkins, and I hear such good things about the Paleo way of eating and Sugar busters too… I will probably read about them all and then not do any of them, and just do what feels good to me.

At first I was vainly thinking I’ll just try low carbing as a short term diet until I can see my abs without clenching in my gut… and putting my arms up in the air….. and bending 45 degrees diagonal…and squinting….in the right lighting….(per my 30 before 30 list) but after reading about the health benefits of minimizing your carbohydrate intake I’m thinking I will just make it my new way of eating for good.

I could totally live without pasta/bread/rice/potatoes/desserts (except cheesecake)….but not fruits or my mama’s preserves…no way! ::shaking head furiously::

I know myself and if it feels restrictive I will buck and inhale 25 chocolate croissants in one sitting, so I’m going to figure out a nice easy way to work it and also figure out what the nutritional needs are when I’m baking up a baby in my belly, so I can readjust.  If baby needs crusty bread dipped in olive oil w/ balsamic vinegar and parmesan shavings, baby’s gunna get it! 🙂  (is it bad that my mouth got watery just typing that out?)

Oh yeah, and I’m going to try to like the taste of fake sugar.  If that’s even possible. What is the deal with that stuff?

Are you a low-carber?? What effects has it had on you? Is it a temporary diet for you or just your natural way of eating now?

Random Ricky Martin story: So in 11th or 12 grade I cut school with this one girl Sandra and we went to Virgin Records or Sam Goody or something to see Ricky Martin and get a pic an autograph!  We got there at like 7am, and waited on this looong ass line ALL goddamn day.  Then. When there were only 2 people left in front of us on line…they announced that Ricky has left and we didn’t have to go home but we had to get the F up outta there.

I cried.

The end.
