Monday, Monday

Well the weekend went well. Friday Night I went and joined a gym, and then went grocery shopping.

I decided to join a gym, mainly to get into the habit of going before the weather turns cold, which is when I will need it most. So I am going to try to get there in the meantime three times a week to do cardio, once the winter hits, I want to start some strength training also.

Also a the store on Friday night I picked up the book The Abs Diet. My younger brother who has done this diet and lost weight has been telling me I need to read it, even if I am not going to follow the diet, just read it, because it has a lot of good info about nutritional info in it. And boy does it. I really think everyone should read this book. It's more about eating clean that it is anything else.

all I have to say after reading it, is hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup are like the devil reincarnated, and it's in absolutely everything. I go to my cupboard after reading the book, and I am thinking "I've been eating great for the past 8.5 months I'm SURE there isn't many foods I'm eating that had them in it!". Oh my was I wrong. Everything has it in it. Crazy. Read it, it's worth the read.

So that being said, I got to thinking about health, and how healthy what I'm eating really is. So I started using SparkPeople to track my food and calories. HOLY CARBS! I'm eating way way more carbs than I should, and not nearly enough fat. Protein I should be eating more, but I'm within the range spark people gives me.

So my question to you guys is, how do I cut my carbs, but increase my fat?

Well girls (and guys, I might have a few of those!), I hope you guys had a splendid weekend, and a happy monday!

how 'bout just having a veggie & protein for supper? I find that the easiest place to cut carb. Adding fat I find easy - a tsp of healthy oil to a salad or veggies and presto!

Way to go on joining the gym. I'm sure you will love it.

Good for you for joining a gym. Can I have some of your motivation? I'm blogging my way to losing 100 pounds. I'm being accountable for every bite!

Hope to hear from you!

Great site!

I agree that I just try to cut the carbs out of my dinner. But I probably ear way too many too...especially lately.

WTG on joining a gym. I'd like to do a class or something, but since I've never set foot in a gym I am SOOOO intimidated by the whole idea.
