Well, what a week. Just as I get into the low-carb eating properly again... I get ill. A bad cold had me sleeping all day Monday and Tuesday, and I've been eating carbs like there's no tomorrow. Then today... a conference at work, complete with carb laden lunch. I am SO not expecting those scales to be kind tomorrow morning!
Nonetheless... I brush off the dirt and get back on the horse. Today I received my Zumba DVDs in the post - so I had to give it a go after the little rascal went to bed. Image below: Before Zumba... and... all Zumba'ed out:
Oh my. Don't ask why I though this was a good idea. I have two left feet and the coordination of a deaf bat. I must have looked like a scarecrow on speed!! Good job I was in my own home and not in public, because I couldn't even get half the moves right even in slow-mo! Mind you, it was fun. And the HR monitor told me my heartrate was in the optimum cardio zone for 95% of the entire hour the intro DVD took. So I conclude: not the best marks for STYLE, but full marks for effort, lol. I guess it can only get better! Plus - I felt gooooood afterwards!
Time for another progress photo too, I thought:
And, since I still get a lot of questions about WHAT I eat on a low carb diet, here are a couple of recent dinners. First up is pan fried cod fillet in a cream and curry sauce, served on cauliflower and broccoli gratin:
And next up is today's dinner - steak chili on mixed leaves, served with loads of grated cheese, soured cream and half an avocado:
Not half bad eh?
