This may seem a bit irrational, but I realize that a lot of the time when I eat carbs, they are useless carbs. Now, I am not saying that all carbs are useless, but for me they were. I was eating a hamburger and the bun, when I knew that I would be satisfied with just the burger alone.
When it is hot outside, I don't like to eat a lot of hot or heavy foods. It is supposed to feel like it is over 100 degrees for the better part of the week. Therefore, I know I will be eating a lot of tuna fish, marinated veggies, basically anything that is quick to fix.
Unfortunately, even foods we think don't have them, do have carbs. There main carb I refuse to cut out is dry cereal (Special K to be exact). Surprisingly, when I look at the break down of my breakfast today everything I ate (with the exception of the cereal because I already knew it was a carb) had carbs in it. So there is no way that I will ever be able to complete cut carbs out of my system which is why I am cutting out grains, pasta, potatoes, etc.
This won't be easy because I have to admit that I do like my carbs, but I know that I can survive without them for the next two weeks. That is why I am telling myself no / low carbs. No carbs if I don't need them, low carbs if I feel I will lose my mind without them.
Ultimately, my goal in two weeks is to put on a swimsuit and actually feel confident in it, even if I have to wear a cover-up (as usual).
