Week 9: Update & Cheat Day!

The months and weeks have flown by since Joe and I took the plunge into the Slow Carb Diet and now we just celebrated our 9th cheat day this past Sunday :) So far Joe has reached 191 lbs - he's now just 11 lbs away from his goal and has lost 7 lbs and some change to date. I seem to be stuck between 103.8 lbs and 104 lbs - but my body fat percentage has decreased as lean muscle has increased so I'm happy with that too - although I still would like to make it down a couple more pounds. Our measurements have been consistently decreasing too - we forgot to do our measurements this past Sunday morning so we'll have to do them this Sunday and add them into the next post ;) Hopefully more amazing results to follow!

My running time has consistently improved due to practicing the tips and method recommended by Tim - but it's time to get a new pair of running shoes (i've hit the 9 month mark with this pair and have put a lot of miles into them) the Vibram 5 Fingers barefoot running shoe looked pretty intriguing and fun, but after doing a bit of research it doesn't appear  to be designed for a runner who's been using regular shoes, since transitioning may take several months and if not done properly may cause looks like I'll be sticking to regular running shoes at this time :)

This week we've been trying to spice up our SCD menu and bring in some Indian flavors! I absolutely love curry, but just haven't had the time to make one from scratch so I found a delicious, organic tomato-based, extra-spicy curry simmer sauce made by Seeds of Change sold at Whole Foods - it was delicious! I added some organic chicken, mushrooms, peppers, and broccoli and served it atop French green lentils. Yum! Definitely recommend this to any curry lovers!

Finally here's a look at our 9th Cheat day on the SCD :) Once again a day filled with lots of carbs, air squats, citrus, and sweets!
